Spokesy made a cameo on the boards yesterday and had it spot on,
we knew where and how Irish would attack and we didn't offer either wing enough support. This is where were missing Clarkie in my opinion.
Tagi might be just back from injury but hes been one of the most consistent performers in the premiership for the last 7 or 8 years. We hung Cato and Vas out to dry for most of the 1st half.
As for Mr Cato, or snoop dogg's cousin as my pals and I have always affectionately called him, his body language on the field seems to do him no favours, which is a shame as he has talent.
With that said, many players have arrived at FG under the current management regime and have been rejuvenated with a more positive attitude and added confidence.
Almost all the rugby player i have ever known have had a sense of arrogance about them, some swagger, confidence. If Noah was able to bring some of that to his performances I'm sure many would appreciate his skills more.
Not all players fit into a new club environment immediately, perhaps that needs to be taken into account too.
One of the unfortunate kick backs from Premiership football over the last 20 years has been the need for players to perform as soon as they arrive at a new club.
Back in the days of yore, guys like Ian Rush, Brian McLair and the like spent the 1st season at their new clubs in the reserves,learning to play the Liverpool and Manchester United way. This doesn't occur anymore, and ask any chelsea fan their thoughts on Fernando Torres for proof.
If he gets a proper run in the team, 4 or 5 games we might just begin to see some confidence grow inside him. Hopefully he isn't injured.
