Well that is bad to worse. Reid hardly decapitated Yarde who looked like he had been taken out by a panzer tank. We look lost all ready.
Yarde went down but I think it was a leg or boot that caught his head, not the tackle.

Agree with you Citizen, we are probably the worst coached team in the premiership.
Not sure that’s what he said, but why let that stand in the way of having a dig
Looking like a scratch team in round 11, simple system that is easily anticipated, its hardly a glowing endorsement of our coaching setup, is it?
Possibly because in some areas it is a scratch team not being helped by losing Taute early doors.
I accept that the coaching could be better but there are other reasons and some people take joy in having a dig at every opportunity.

This is dreadful. I’m sorry but my mind is made up, Smurf must not have anything more to do with coaching and tactics. Glad SB is coming in and hopefully he can sort out the lineout if nothing else.
keep dreaming and you'll keep wondering

And how much input does Murphy have on the line out.

They should be able to train the back ups to the schemes sufficiently well that they're better than scratch, surely, I mean the 6 Nations isn't exactly unexpected.
No, not that one!

Remember, whatever you do to the smallest of the backs you do to his prop, and you can't avoid the rucks and mauls forever...

There are issues with the coaching, but be a little subjective about it and also some of the blame needs laying at the players door

Agreed but injuries to Kalamafoni Taufua, Young’s stupidity have hardly helped

Probably not much, I wasn’t insinuating he did. To be fair he is mucking everything else up pretty well.

Begs the question if relegation was still in play how many of the walking wounded would have played

No but players unable to perform basic skills that they were taught as juniors need to look at their own performance

It’s great when someone is able to make such a generalisation without fear of repercussion
