Watching the falcons game today. Williams seems twice the player he was with us. His footwork has been brilliant and his handling is very good. Seems to have come on leaps and bounds from the smash up 12 he seemed to be with us

Big Joe is very impressive for Bath too - annoying isn't it ...

It’s hard to watch but our inability to secure a proper 10 over the past five years meant we never made the best use of our backs. Not that we always had the best ball but to have a half a chance we needed guys who weren’t former fullbacks or utility players playing at ten. Lewi acired again yesterday as well.

Yep - can't help thinking if we hadn't had that stitch-up with Goode a few years back we'd have stayed up and might have held on to some of our best players ...

Still all ifs and buts unfortunately ...

It’s also a sad indictment on our rubbish backs coaching over the last few seasons.

eddie jones said it himself a few weeks back that now Big Joe C is getting some decent front foot ball we are seeing what he is really capable of. This is the same for lewi and Johnny. The problem has been two fold one the aforementioned 10 which has now hopefully been addressed, the other being our forwards have simply not been good enough at prem level.

In regards to the backs coaching comments, it was mentioned during the game that Williams went to Newcastle to work with walder, it’s working.

Our set piece has generally been pretty good in the prem think the problem with the forwards has been carrying to get us over the gain line. Seem to have a few more ball carriers at the moment but still a couple short in my opinion

We have carriers, not I wonder if they’d make a dent into any prem defences? We saw how hard you have to work to er any yards in that league. We’re in even bigger trouble now that our three prem quality backs have left and doing great things in better teams.
