Best hails ‘ruthless’ Schmidt

first_img “It’s ruthless, but that’s where you want to be. This is a ruthless level we’re playing at: we’re playing the best teams in the world, the best players in the world. “You go back to 12 months ago, you make one small error and you lose a game. “On Saturday we didn’t and that is ingrained in us now that you stick to the system. “You trust the guy to your right and the guy to your left, and ultimately we have systems and protocols in place that can win you games in tight situations.” Former Leinster boss Schmidt gritted his teeth through suspected appendicitis to stay on hand and direct operations against Australia, before heading off for medical tests at full-time. Doctors at the Aviva Stadium sent Schmidt to Dublin’s St Vincent’s Hospital, where his condition was confirmed and he underwent surgery to have his appendix removed. The ex-Clermont coach was recuperating on Sunday following the successful operation, the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) confirmed. Ireland cemented their status as the number-three side in the world rankings on Saturday, backing up their 29-15 South Africa victory with another impressive result. Simon Zebo and Tommy Bowe claimed the tries for the hosts, with Johnny Sexton slotting 16 points from the tee. Australia outscored the home side three tries to two, with Nick Phipps claiming a brace and Bernard Foley also crossing. The resolve of Schmidt’s men mirrored the tenacity of the boss himself however, as Ireland fended off wave after wave of late attacks while the Kiwi head coach played down his illness. Centre Robbie Henshaw admitted he “didn’t notice” Schmidt was unwell in the build-up to Saturday’s autumn-closing Test. “Joe is an amazing coach and his attention to detail, as mentioned before, is unbelievable,” said Henshaw. “He gets you in the frame of mind where you have to know everything inside out. “It’s paying off, his work. He spots weaknesses in teams or where there is space in between teams. “He expects us to rise to the occasion. “We knew during the week it was going to be a physical game and that they were going to be ramped up. “We knew ourselves that we had to get one back on them from last year and we did that, thankfully. “He didn’t make so much of being unwell at all. I didn’t notice, he seemed pretty normal to me.” Hooker Best admitted Ireland may well have failed to close out Saturday’s 26-23 victory over Australia in previous campaigns. The Ulster front-rower conceded Ireland suffered “mental switch-offs” in a 32-15 defeat to Australia and the last-gasp 24-22 All Blacks loss in November 2013. The unwell head coach Schmidt delayed medical treatment to guide Ireland to their first autumn Test series clean sweep for eight years on Saturday, before being rushed to hospital to have his appendix removed. “The pleasing thing is that compared to where we were 12 months ago is that mentally, we stayed in,” said Best. “If you look at it 12 months ago we went mistake after mistake, mental switch-offs if you like, but this time round in a similar position, we didn’t. “But this year we stuck to our system, we came off the line, we hit and stuck, and we really put pressure on Australia. “Ultimately they were the ones under pressure at the end of the match because they were the ones who had to get points in some shape or form. “We put pressure on them, everyone stuck to their job and the big thing for us is that no one threw in the towel mentally. “There are a lot of great coaches out there, but Joe is certainly one of the best I’ve worked with. “He just expects a high level from you: and if you don’t toe the line and you don’t come up to his fairly tight standards then he finds someone else that will. Joe Schmidt’s “ruthless” selection policy has forced Ireland to shed mental weaknesses that were costing victories, according to Rory Best. Press Associationlast_img read more

Spurs shed ‘soft touch’ image as Pochettino leaves his mark

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham have been derided as a soft touch for decades, but the sight of Eden Hazard being hounded into submission showed Mauricio Pochettino’s side are finally shedding their nice-guy image.The perception of Tottenham as entertaining but ultimately flawed under-achievers has haunted a succession of managers at the north London club.But Pochettino has worked tirelessly to imbue his squad with a more ruthless streak and Tuesday’s hard-fought 1-0 win over Chelsea in the League Cup semi-final first leg suggested his efforts have not been in vain.Tangible evidence of Tottenham’s new-found steely side could be seen in the way Hazard trudged wearily down the Wembley tunnel at full-time.In a bid to subdue Chelsea’s influential playmaker, Hazard was subjected to 90 minutes of intense tackling from Tottenham, who fouled the Belgian seven times — more than any other team this season.While Tottenham were aggressive in their approach, it was hardly the work of a group of hatchet men intent on kicking an opponent into submission.Pochettino wanted Hazard to realise nothing would come easily for him, that Tottenham players would be hassling him at every turn.It was the kind of shrewd game-plan that teams from Pochettino’s native Argentina have often used successfully and it worked to perfection against Chelsea.Hazard, already hampered by Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri’s decision to use him as a centre forward, found it difficult to find the space to flourish as Tottenham crowded him out time and again.The Spurs boss would not go into detail when asked about his team’s treatment of Hazard, but he did acknowledge he was the man to stop. “He has unbelievable quality. He was involved in the game a lot,” Pochettino said.“It is so difficult to stop him. We are talking about a player on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.”– Glory game –Such a smart yet cynical approach would, in the past, have been anathema to a club raised on the legendary Danny Blanchflower’s famous claim that “the game is about glory, it is about doing things in style and with a flourish”.Yet Pochettino has no qualms about his desire to make Tottenham more streetwise.“If you think about how we can improve our squad, it’s not only about adding quality players, but sometimes you need to be a little bit naughty,” Pochettino said this week.“We are so nice and in that game we showed that we can be a little naughty.”While Harry Kane, whose penalty winner made him Tottenham’s fourth highest all-time scorer, remains Pochettino’s most valuable asset, it was the tenacity of a well-drilled defence that emerged as the key to victory against Chelsea.With Tottenham searching for their first trophy since 2008, maintaining that hard-nosed style will be essential if Pochettino is at last to win the first silverware of his managerial career.There have been too many moments in Pochettino’s reign when Tottenham have shrunk in the spotlight.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more
