WATCH – Johann van Graan sets penalty count goal for crucial Racing clash.
As Sunday’s European clash with Top 14 side Racing 92 fast approaches head coach Johann van Graan has highlighted his side’s recent discipline issues as a main focus of improvement ahead of the trip to the U Arena.
The South African hopes to keep the penalty count to a minimum in what will be a tough away trip against an in-form Racing side.
“If we can concede less than 7 penalties in a game, most likely you’ll win that game especially going up against a team that mauls very well. It depends on where you concede those penalties set piece wise. Once you get into your own 22 and you’ve got to defend a scrum or a maul it becomes very difficult to stop it and that might lead to 7, that might lead to a card.
“On the other side if we can be disciplined and force the opposition to concede penalties when we get into those positions we’ll have a good chance in that game.”
