To think in the presser Fages mentioned about what to do.Matho is playing to zero crowds and working his arse off every week. Bet he does more than 17 sprints and outworks the retiree.
Absolutely bring him in to replace any player who are puts in less sprints then Mitch.
Which is the whole bloody team. Embarrassing and telling.
The fact that players in the reserves who put in massive efforts don't get reward probably contributes to that shameful statistic. Arrogant players, believing they are sooo great they are untouchable.
Heads MUST roll this week. Take the loss, and send a message. Who knows - might not be a loss because we will have players actually trying.
Do we put the game aside and get on with it or do we critique it and find what the learnings will be .
see what I did there.
Not his exact words , but that was the gist of it.
Starting to think he might be a bit lost at the moment or second guessing the whole plan.
Still why wouldn't he be livid with that performance, possibly because he has realized the direction he has taken us is flawed.
That's the only excuse or reason , some of it is on his shoulders, otherwise get up the friggin lotof them ffs.
On the game and I don't think anybody here has mentioned this.
We weren't kicking it down the line or banging way forward , instead diinky kicks sideways and backwards.
Felt like maybe there was a change in tactic , really unlike us tbh.
As bad as banging it to a contest down the line is, boy what we were doing was not based on spread or movement.
Was this an attempt to keep possession and run and present , hope not cause there wasn't much movement and no run and gun , just kept possession until we kicked ourselves into a corner. This would of been the second quarter I noticed this.
