Nothing like recycling a story from another publication

Would be a weee bit pi$$ed off if Sam goes. Our backs are tearing it up no matter who plays

Think you'd better get used to the idea PE. Seems pretty much a definite.

I am being really pedantic here: but have we torn it up no matter who plays? Certainly we do when Francois and Jonno play. This is not to deny Sam's talent, surely any backs coach wants good half-backs and ball carriers, but I don't want us looking back thinking all was rosier than it is.

Just saying - We have the Premiership's equal second lowest try tally
We have the Premiership's second lowest points for tally

Probably backs up why we're second lowest in the league...

We have picked up a decent cluster of TBP so far this year, compared to the past seasons. The tail end of last season was decent in that regard too. This may be what PE is referring to rather than we have the best Backs in the Prem, as clearly a full Chiefs, Sarries or Wasps side are more clinical than we are when it comes to try scoring.


That said, a run of results until the end of the season like the one obtained on Saturday, would improve out Prem points tally a lot, but not do much for try tally of change greatly our points for / against tallies dramatically.

Improbable yes, but just saying winning running rugby doesn't have to be based on try fests, but it no doubt helps.

Our turnaround in fortunes, attacking and otherwise, most definitely coincided with Heem, Pennell, Mills and FH returning to fitness; not to mention Lance arriving.

Not to suggest that Vesty isn't a very good coach, he is no doubt, but think the players themselves have more of an impact personally.

However believe a bad coach could certainly take us backwards - we've been there before.

Next season then:

Head Coach: Duncan
Attack: ????
Forwards: Duncan or ????
Defense: Omar
Scrum: Mefyn

One of our cryptic posters seems to suggest that Omar is stood on an end of season 'trap door', so maybe ???? to his name as well. Think this may lead to Duncan bringing in his own team, if Omar's services are dispensed with.
