The six loses in a row are probably the best indicator of a ‘poor state’.When you see the opposition coach give Polec second best on ground - and when you see Pittard do what he did - yet the former gets dropped and lambasted in the presser and there are no repercussions for the latter - then you dont need to know the inner workings to know that things are in a poor state.
That has some merit to it, however we all see where we finish on the ladder every year with the regular players in the team.All that proves is that many of us on here have no idea what’s really going on at the club, what the coaches want and what’s best for the team.
Hence why some players that are bagged on here are loved by their team mates and coaches and get games every week.
Yep. Wasn’t missed at all. I think Polec is part of the problem of our predictability when he’s only able to win the footy on the outside.We didn’t miss him today but he will play next game
TBH you need both.Hope he was watching Jed closely on what it means to be a Shinboner.
No he doesn't have to be as brutal as Jed of course, but there must be a minimum standard of being willing to play for the team.
The fancy party tricks and skills are great.
Backing into packs and putting head over the footy is what wins games.
I agree with that. Flair alone won't win a premiership nor will grunt alone.TBH you need both.
Too hard and not skilled enough will win some games.
Skillful and not hard enough will also win some games.
It's having both that makes very good teams.
Polec is clearly being challenged to get better. He either does or he'll leave.
Interesting few months coming up here.
