Kennedy not happy despite big win
New South Wales Waratahs' coach Ian Kennedy was critical of his side despite their 51-16 win over the Cats in Sydney.
Speaking after the game Kennedy said "If we had been playing a team that was already here or had come from New Zealand and didn't have to travel from Saturday we would have got our arses kicked. I am still not happy about our play. We turned over too much ball and we didn't create and we rushed too much."
"It was good that we played for 80 minutes and kept scoring right to the end and that we showed we had a bit of resolve, but the execution was poor. If we play poorly and win and get a bonus point it's good, but we really need to improve,"
New Zealander Laurie mains, coach of the Cats believed his side made to many silly mistakes "We were our own worst enemy and we never got going and when we did we gave the ball back to them. From our point of view it was just a disaster and we couldn't have played worse. Our silly mistakes handed it to them on a plate and we gave three tries to NSW.
Speaking about not winning in Australia and New Zealand, Mains said: "They (the South Africans) seem to have a mental thing about playing over this side (of the world)"
