Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. Paul Gustard spent last summer broadening his coaching horizons as he sought to dispel the gloom that descended after Englands porous display in the final Test against Australia.A 3-0 whitewash was sealed by a roller coaster 44-40 victory in Sydney and, although it delivered the final act in a remarkable season, defence coach Gustard was left feeling dark at seeing the Grand Slam champions line breached five times.Upon reviewing the series and identifying various flaws, head coach Eddie Jones revised his view of the performances and demanded that his assistants improve by spending time outside of rugby to expand their skills.We didnt coach well enough on tour, so our staff have been working really hard investigating other sports, Jones said.Gustard visited New Zealand Warriors, Wigan and Warrington rugby league clubs and also spent time with British judo, his focus sharpened by Englands frailty at the end of a long season that began with the World Cup.I worked with Eddie before and knew he would be frank. I dont mind that. I dont want to be an ordinary coach, I want to be the best coach I can be, Gustard said.In the third Test we were off the pace -- I was pretty dark after the game. I felt we didnt give a true representation of ourselves.I was dark immediately. Its a long time (sincee) Ive been involved in a team that has conceded that many tries in a game.ddddddddddddAlthough we got lucky on occasion in the second Test, it was through sheer fight, determination and willingness to defend our line that we gave a true representation of what England rugby is about.The third Test wasnt that. We made soft errors and bad decisions off the ball. We put ourselves in compromised positions and against a good team we got burnt and you cant afford to do that.Englands next assignment is an autumn series at Twickenham comprising of fixtures against South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia and Gustard is seeking perfection.My aim going into a game is not to concede any tries or any points. Thats the aim, the vision, the dream. The reality doesnt always work out like that, Gustard said.We averaged conceding 1.7 tries per game over the summer series, which isnt good enough. I know that, the boys know that.We went from conceding four tries in the Six Nations to conceding 10 tries in the summer. We conceded some pretty soft scores but we still conceded them.We know we need to bring that down and we believe we can do so with what weve been working on.
