SPA 054: England Vs Wales – 3 Mindful Lessons from this Game in the Rugby World Cup 2015

“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” – Michael Jordan

Stuart Barnes said in an interview that this game is England Rugby team captain, Chris Robshaw’s worst decision ever.

I think Chris Robshaw definitely has his reasons to make his own decisions on the field and it’s his responsibility to take when it comes to honouring what he has said as well as the outcome.

However, the whole team should be accountable for the whole game, not just for Chris to bear.

Ultimately it’s a team game and what could have helped the team shouldn’t be that last minute, they should have done something such that the Wales team did not have the chance to chase up.
