Agree, I feel our senior players are the problem, Murphys got the position he worked hard to get and the players have their mate in charge.BigDan50 wrote: ↑Sun Sep 23, 2018 7:09 pmPerhaps the Young brothers, Manu, Cole and George Ford as senior players have to much input into the way Tigers play and don't carry out the coaches instructions, if that the case time to drop them and give some of the younger players a chance to stake their claim to more game time.
Ben Kay suggests Ford wasn’t happy with the way MOC wanted to play, perhaps didn’t help that he bought a world class 10 in that showed him up last season when he was away from England, but yet when he returns we played Toomua in the centre?
Ben Youngs has been lucky we haven’t bought a world class 9 in, but I still believe our replacements for him are a better option, he allows the defence to gain metres in the tackle and puts pressure on our attack. Why do we continue to play him when he is in poor form?
As for Tom, and I write strictly on the field, he has a punch up with Barrow...Barrow leaves!
He is not captain material.
He irks the officials, and is unable to get them on his side.
He claims the bad times aren’t that bad and the good times aren’t that good when talking about results. A mediocre approach to getting results!
We bring in a world class hooker and yet Tom stills starts when not in form?
Surely he wouldn’t be happy with TPN coming in to challenge for the starting shirt.
TPN isn’t gona stay if he knows Tom is first choice whatever happens.
Sadly I feels it’s time to say thank you to the youngs brother and move them on, or get someone in to remove this player power.
All imo of course, but I don’t like the way this is going.
