On the pitch leadership
It has been said on numerous occassions, that Titts has not been the dynamic captain we all expected, and he is far too quiet, both with the players, and with the officials.He also showed today his decision making leaves a bit to be desired
Who have we got, who is inspirational, and could make that extra difference that we need from a leader?
For me, we have two young players who have both captained their country successfully at under 20 level, so why not give Rowan, or Walker the chance to stake a claim.



COME ON LEEDS.
We've been through it all together.

Re: On the pitch leadership
i would drop titts to the bench. All that i remember of him today was giving away penalties

until mac is back you have to go with rowan, whether he is vocal enough on the pitch i dont know

we must also have the most quiet scrum halfs in the league! they need to go to the gommers school of chat..

Re: On the pitch leadership
I wasn't at the game but listened to Rob Rawlinson summerising as I came back from Lincoln. He queried the decision made by AT to go for a Scrum after being awarded a penalty which was in a kickable position and would have given Leeds a 10 point margin. He hoped it wouldn't backfire on Leeds but again it did and Bedford defended the Scrum and went up the field and equalised.

Poor decision making has cost Leeds dearly on several occasions this season and DE must be pulling his hair out, no wonder he subbed AT almost straight away.

Re: On the pitch leadership
Haxby you are being kind.....it could, but I do not think it will, have cost the club alot of money today when we fail to get into the semis. What Titterell did was barking mad today and if I had been a player I would be very disheartened. I have always been a hugh supporter of him but if that is his decision making he should hand over the reigns.

Re: On the pitch leadership
Agree 100% Haxby

Shocking decision making from Titts today. I'm a fairly inexperienced rugby supporter and I knew we should have taken the 3 points and so did my 12 year old son.

Re: On the pitch leadership
Your 12 year old would probably have kicked the penalty it was that easy.

Re: On the pitch leadership
I know why he did it. We were on top in the scrum and he thought we might get a penalty try and a yellow card. As a front row forward I think he got white line fever.

Re: On the pitch leadership
I would say that the decision has led to the need for a great deal of bridge building before a team is named for next weekend having witnessed some differences on Sunday.

Re: On the pitch leadership
I for one, will be keeping an eye out for the team to be annonced tomorrow for Bedford, to see if there are any recriminations arising from last weekends match.
