Probably just wants a new deal and given his age realises he won’t have many options , be good to keep him for a year in the championship though .

We should be better at it now we have had a practice go.

Yes we did it a year ago, but there were clearly flaws. How many times did we suffer lapses in concentration and allow the opposition to score late tries? How poor was our defense against the likes of Ryan Burrows? How many times did a scramble defense save us from conceeding points? How difficult did we find scoring tries against a well drilled team, such as Ealing?

Unfortunately none of these problems were addressed over the course of the season, we got promoted yes, but our flaws were brutally exposed.

We seem to be addressing at least some of the issues, so hopefully we can continue the improvement of we're relegated and come back stronger

Firstly it's obviously critical that we go up and Ealing will certainly present a challenge on that front.

I think the lesson from last time would be to rely a little less on our mall for tries. Was effective last time and having a pack that can dominate in the right is an advantage. That said, we saw that it didn't translate to the AP and would hope to see us play a bit more of an expansive game this time.

Absolutely spot on and on top of that players haven't improved their performances as they should do under a normal coaching performance, hopefully the 2K's can have their influence
