Don't think they were afraid they just seemed lethargic and disinterested.
I think they were. Afraid that is. The disinterest and lethargy you talk of is fear of hitting the line. Nine times out of ten its because theyve been smashed really good hitting it up. Maybe a nice little shoulder drop into the ribs that rattled them. Do that a second time and you always look up next time to make sure your not running at that guy again.

Same in reverse. You can get scared of certain players hitting it up cause they dont handbrake at the line and knock the shit out of you when you go to stop them.

They got rolled in the weekend cause they were physically dominated...

Just too many errors.
When you're completing at 68% and the opposition are completing in the 90s you're gonna lose.
Add to that as soon as the opposition gets in your 20 your defence breaks like a NZ hockey side in the last minute of an Olympic quarter final.:(

After multiple sets in their 20. They just marched down the field and scored as soon as they got down our end.:oops:

TheFullback

Mamaulo to the second row? shuddder....

The guy has absolutely no mongrel. And rather than missing tackes on the wing, he'll be missing tackles in the middle of the field.

Well it seems like we are stuck with him till 2018 so what do we do with him lol

Why it's not the backs.wells has a case for full back fix up the positional awareness.but the only change needed is Bunty and maybe gavet
Them Reynold kicks should of been covered by backs.
Aimed to the edges or just behind.
But I see where your coming from, that's been a question asked for a while on our bench.
 

TheFullback

Well he is listed as a wing/2nd rower/center. He isn't doing so well at wing and we have enough second rowers so maybe he gets to play center.

I always found centre to be one of the hardest defensive positions to play and considering the lack of his pace you could see teams overloading the side he's playing. Not a winger not a 2nd rower questions over him at centre. I guess we put him there and see bro

I thought we just had a player clean out and that we had the squad we need.

So sacking players hasn't worked, sacking coaches hasn't worked, changing owners hasn't worked.

What's left?

The fans!

We need to move the club to Australia. Then and only then will we have the fans we need to win.;)

Or we could hire someone to bring in a winning atmosphere to the club.

Sack the losers? A loser witch hunt would not be very PC I know, but it just might work.
Our biggest issue is very few aussie coaches and players want to uproot to NZ.when they can get the same dollars in Aus

That's a problem.

But our team could have played way better than they did last weekend. At home, at night, awesome crowd and they play like a reserve grade team.

That's my most hated problem with supporting this club...

I thought it was the heat?

I thought it was the heat?
That's a factor as well. The hot game results would do damage to the teams confidence early in the season, which they never really get past when they are winning mid season. So the odd capitulation on a cold night is still on the cards...

In short, these guys deserve more self belief than what they usually run out with on game day.
