Mead: Still room for improvement

Despite the PNG LNG Kumuls cruising home to an easy win over Wales yesterday, Captain David Mead believes there is still room for improvement.

“Obviously, we’ve taken a lot of confidence from the win. But there are still things to fix up and improve on both in defence and attack.

“Obviously, our ball security is one thing.  I thought if we controlled the ball a bit better and built more pressure, we could have done a bit more damage against Wales.

“But overall, it was a pretty good performance, “said Mead.

Kumuls assistant coach, Marcus Bai agreed that the team needs to polish up on a number of areas before the next game against Ireland on Sunday November 5 at the Oil Search National Football Stadium.

“We still have a lot of work to do because the next game will be even harder.

“We’ll review the game on Monday and Tuesday. Sit back, and analyse it and go from there. We just have to keep working hard.

“But the boys deserve a pat on the back for their performance, “said Bai.
