Agreed, it did feel like we ran out of steam. That said results have been pretty awful at the back end of the season 3 years on the trot now and when results aren’t going your way back players don’t have that that spring in their step, they get nervous, & don’t make that run because they don’t want to be caught out etc. which is a big factor in my opinion. I’d probably side with that over us being seemingly unfit going in to the run in.
As a squad we’ve got to learn to cope with the back end of the season a lot better and show we’ve learnt something from previous years as a fair amount of the squad have been involved in at least 2 of those campaigns.
