What is on paper a strong team could end up being a weak one when tested by a tricky opponent.
How the players gel and work together, how effective the coach is in bringing the best out of
players, the strength of the defensive line and often the rise ofÂ a relative unknown to help
carry the team can all influence who ends up winning.
