Notes
Quotes from Intensity Coach, Paul Anthony 

“What is ideal is that we put in a better performance against the Lions after losing to the Cheetahs. We want our players to be accountable for how they perform. That game we lost, as with the Bulls against the Hurricanes, those were both literally millimetres away from victories.

“Without a doubt the players felt accountable after the Cheetahs loss. They knew that they weren’t on par, they were disappointed with themselves. In one-on-ones afterwards, regarding the effort level, I didn’t have to say anything; they showed the lack of effort and were all accountable. But they all lifted their performances markedly and we’re hoping to lift it even more, game after game.”
