Also sounds like Bell is firmly in the same camp as Ross for all those hoping this might be a catalyst for a sacking.

Actually, Belly used an awful lot of Rossisms (never as good/bad, hard review) in that interview. Think he might have him under his spell...

He's in on the plan. Even talking up Crowden doing good work over the ball meanwhile his man Shuey ran off with it kicking it inside fifty.

Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere.
Really bland interview, I think. I realise that there is not going to be a lot that can be said, but describing our problem with scoring as ‘connection with the forwards’ is just glossing over our complete inability to establish forward line structures.

I get where your coming from but I think the comment was balanced by saying our structure down forward is compromised at the moment due to new players and injuries to key ones.
However our 'system' up forward needs some new/fresh thinking. A good system should support different players assuming the same roles and it not falling apart completely.

We haven't had the same guys play in the fwd line for how many weeks? It has been a combination of Tabs/Hogan/Cox/Mccarthy/Lobb all year.

Lobb has rucked most of the year for starters. Hogan had the longest run. There hasn't been much continuity and when there was we were playing good football.

What's our win/loss with both Hogan and Tabs out of the team?
With neither of them:
P2 W0 D0 L2 so 0%

With both of them:
P8 W3 D0 L5 so not great (37.5%) with both of them either...

That means with just one of them:
P5 W4 D0 L1 (80%)

Unless my maths is off and/or I've missed a game where both/neither/one of them played
