Agree entirely, WW. This year is going to be one of consolidation/regrouping. Either we find some money from a Yorkie Sugar Daddy (not sure if they exist as a species?) or our Academy comes up with some world-beaters.

I will now be pleasantly surprised if we can turn out 23 fit men against the Exiles.

Jimmy puts an honest perspective on things in his video. Good core to the squad but it is small. No new players yet but there will very as the season goes. Loans no doubt.

Need to get someone to help back this club.

During the interview J-Lo alludes the fact that, in his opinion, some players have not been looking after themselves and hence we have niggling injuries in pre-season leading to the cancellation of our only friendly game at Glaws.

Unless he was trying to deflect blame for the small squad/no friendlies situation?

Overall, any communication from the club is welcomed and J-Lo is a believable, natural personality IMHO.

I have always liked J-Lo. He is someone we should all be able to relate to and support and we played some excellent rugby last time he was in charge. There is far too much pessimism on this message board. The expectation might not be quite as high as last year and the ground redevelopment doesn't seem to have helped but I'm sure we can all put up with having to watch the game from a different perspective for a while or are we all far too set in our ways? Let's just get behind our team.

A bit too late for pessimism. The reality is that, WE ARE DOOMED!

This year we will be second class class. If we can not raise a team for our first warm up game that says alot. No reason given but investing in the wrong areas on the pitch could cost us dear

The reason given was a lack of fit front row players. J-Lo said that some players had not looked after themselves and hence had picked up niggling injuries. The fact that, at the moment, we only have one stand-off on the books will certainly cost us dear.
