SACK EVERYONE - HEADS MUST ROLL

Post by JWM » Sat May 21, 2016 6:24 pm

Just sayin', before everyone else leaps in with the predictable.

By the way, I don't see what sacking anyone would achieve at this juncture, we're only mid-way through the planned rebuild. Don't bring in different managing staff just when that is happening.

If anyone should be sacked it should NOT be the coaches. They coach the team to play good rugby, complete passes, not infringe, ground the ball over the try line, kick penalties and conversions. But when the whistle blows, it's the players on the pitch who are in control of what they do. They are the ones with "butter fingers" or who do forward passes. They do the long pass, with risk of interception, they fail to ground the ball, etc. These are all things that are coached from junior level upwards but some of the squad have not performed this season. And don't get me started on the tackling....

How do you know if it's not being coached/drilled properly or if it's down to players. Also the coaches recruit the players and pick the starting XV/23.

Reality is, we as fans don't know, and can only make an educated guess on what we see, read, etc.

For me we've had different problems through the last 3 seasons and it's difficult to correlate everything given that and the various coaching and player changes.

I think key is getting our forward dominance back whilst maintaining that ability and willingness to attack from all parts of the field, in the right circumstances. In a word "balance". Unlike 5 minute wonders Quins, Saints and Bath, I can't see Sarries going away so we are going to have match and overtake them.

Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

Baps have a soft crust, cobs have crusty one. At least they did when I was eating them between about 1961 and 1983, in Leicester and Leicestershire.

Baps and vestals make me think about something else altogether...
I am neither clever enough to understand nor stupid enough to play this game
