ARMIDALE player-coach Brian Dennison has pinpointed his side’s defence as one of the main reasons for the Rams’ improvement this season.
Speaking ahead of the Rams’ clash with Guyra on Sunday, Dennison said the third-placed outfit’s impressive form so far has been built on a willingness to “keep turning up for each other”.
The Rams have conceded only 219 points after eight rounds, compared to 310 at the same stage last season.
“My mentality is that if you don’t defend well, you don’t win games,” Dennison said.
“The games we have won we’ve defended really well and both games we’ve lost we’ve not turned up in defence.”
Dennison told The Express a strong recruitment drive during the off-season has also been behind the club’s stunning turnaround.
Armidale languished in second-last position for much of 2011 and trailed minor premiers Glen Innes by 20 points at the end of the regular season.
But the first grade side was bolstered by the signings of influential players like halfback Clarrie Moran, Ron Dennison and Alistair Faulkner at the end of last year’s campaign.
