Matt Corker saw areas for Canterbury to work on in their dramatic National League 2 East win over Worthing on Saturday.
A try from skipper Jamie Stephens in the final minute gave Canterbury a 36-33 victory at Merton Lane.
It was a dramatic end to the match in which neither side established proper control and lacked basic discipline - with yellow cards for both teams.
Canterbury head coach Corker, whose side have a free Saturday this weekend, reflected: “It doesn’t really matter what the score is until the last whistle.
“It’s about actually making sure that, in those deciding moments, you have the composure to come out on top.
“Watching it back, you see you’re only one error away from it not happening for us.
“We actually had quite a few sustained attacks and we probably played about six or seven minutes of extra time. We were on a last-play penalty for five or six minutes.
“To sort of stare that down and come out on the right side of the result, that’s a really good achievement. What we’ll probably be looking at this week is why we were in that situation in the first place.
“We didn’t play our best rugby for very long periods of time. There were some fantastic tries in there, which is something that we’re always really proud of but, also, there were some real lapses in concentration.
“We’re going to have a real focus on our tackling technique.
“Worthing came on the other side of it and had four yellow cards for high tackles, we had two. The spotlight has come back on that side of the game and we didn’t adjust quickly enough.”
With no first-team match to watch, there will be an opportunity for supporters to see Canterbury Pilgrims - runaway Kent 1 leaders - at Dover this Saturday.
“That’s a really big game,” Corker said. “The Pilgrims squad has been really tested recently.
“It’s that time of year where injuries start cropping up and, when we need a player, we take one from their squad.
“So, they can begin to feel the squeeze.
“But it's a real testament to the work of the coaches, Jon Foster and Justin Loveridge, that they have so much strength-in-depth. It’s put them into a great position but, over and above that, it’s just a great place to play rugby.
“They play with smiles on their faces and play a really exciting brand. But also, they’re really committed and really physical.
“It’s just a fantastic place for younger players to cut their teeth.
“We’re really proud of how well they are doing.”
