Craig finds plan B-南京夜网

A ROLLED ankle has meant Adelaide playmaker Tyson Edwards will not take part in the Crows’ meeting with Carlton today, in a match that will provide coach Neil Craig with the first test of his now “gettable” game plan.
Blues coach Dennis Pagan this week said he was annoyed Richmond had undone the Crows by shutting down their run and playing kick-to-kick in the back half, ploys he had planned to try today.
With that in mind, Craig said learning how to deal with counter-tactics represented the next phase of Adelaide’s development into a premiership-winning club.
“It might be the next phase of our learning — in this competition you’re going to need more than one game plan, otherwise you’re going to become very one dimensional,” he said yesterday.
“So your decision as a coach is what do you do, do you spend a bit of time on this plan or a bit more on this one so you have three and you don’t do any really well.
“We think we’ve got a game plan we do reasonably well now, but if it’s going to be dissected and defended against then our next stage of development is to come up with a plan B if you like, and do it well, not just plan it.”
Much criticism has been directed towards Craig for his reluctance to vary Adelaide’s structure when challenged by the Tigers, and he admitted his timing had been “pretty poor” in not changing things until the final quarter, which Adelaide won conclusively, but too late.
