Blues rue lack of control at breakdown

1:13 pm on 13 February 2010

The Blues Super 14 rugby coach Pat Lam has been left to rue his side's lack of discipline after they surrendered a 20-12 halftime lead to lose to the Hurricanes 34-20 in Albany on Friday night.

The game was marred by multiple penalties as the players struggled with the new rules at the breakdown.

Lam says after scoring two good tries early in the game, his side lost their composure and conceded far too many penalties in their own half.
