80 words on…The Phoney War

ExPatDadSG is the latest to have a go at our new 80-word format


The home countries have decided to prepare for the Rugby World Cup differently. Wales and England have trumpeted how hard they've trained. Ireland and Scotland have been much quieter. It's about building self belief for those tight moments.  A Joe Schmidt strength is the ability to tell players "do this and you will win". Wales and England are about belief that they can keep going longer. Which will win out? The phony war won't tell us, the real one will.
