Relegation would have been a better option. We are the weakest link....goodbye! .......and start again.

We also have a brand new attacking coach who may be a little bit responsible for our current attack, so as much as I understand why people give a lot of blame to Murphy, you should also look at our new attacking coach.
I would be amazed if a Backs coach actually wants to play this style of rugby.
But it’s probably difficult to implement a real attacking plan in only a few months
OK so why would it be down to him.
9/10 Kicking is usually always down to the person in charge of the game plan so Borthwick or Murphy.

Largely cause we keep kicking it which would suggest we don't have one.

We refuse to use it.

I feel like a lot of people are forgetting what loads of people on this forum agreed back before the season restart, which is that Tigers had very little to gain in the back end of this season so it can be used for Borthwick to test his squad. I feel like every time a very weak, young Tigers get a lot of points put on them by a much better side everyone starts to lose there mind.

My main point is that if this keeps happening week in week out next season, people are right to start getting very disappointed but this season when we all now it’s a time for testing the squad can we all stop being so negative.

Here's the thing we have nothing to play for now Europe is over can't get 8th can't get relegated.
So why not try stuff.

I don't get it.
I mean even if it's barbarians style mess in attack just something fun for the last 2 games.

There also seems no ability to change things that are not working. No trusting decision makers on field. One plan, march across the Somme and never mind the machine guns. Now do it again.

We need the ball to attack, which we haven’t had. Trying to think of positives but it’s a struggle. We are rock bottom which means we can only move up. Also Henry has a great spark about him, so that’s a bonus to have a second fly half who is adventurous.
Can’t blame anyone, just a perfect storm from the last 2 seasons.
Onto the Quinn’s game and pray for a result and performance.
There is never any points for 2nd place...

if Murphy is in anyway responsible for our attacking plan he has to be sacked!

nothing has changed since before the new coaches came in in terms our our "tactics" we're trying to play like 90s Ireland only we can't defend and don't kick well enough

Oh you mean the non attacking coach :smt009
He’s only been here a matter of months give him a chance, or you should have a go at his job trying to build rhythm with a back line that changes every week with a group of players he’s never worked with and haven’t really played with each other.

Testing the squad is fine. But using losing tactics week after week is just moronic
