Few comments: “Despite the “polar” cold, we assisted to a good game on a technical point of view and held in a good spirit from both teams. The Greek team is showing good progress. A clear domination of the Greek scrum. On the other side, too many penalties were conceded, in particular in the first half (mainly diving and hands in ruck). At least two tries due to miss in the final passes and some heart beats when trying to get out the 22 with … passes.”
