On the way home I was thinking -
How badly in every way do some players have to be consistently before they are dropped (i.e out of form).
I wasn't thinking of Classy btw - who is probably being coached to play that way.
Apart from that I thought it was a good old fashioned rugby match - shame about the result but it could have been a lot bigger margin. BB&W on the whole did play their hearts out, and it is now painfully obvious to me at least that the coaching is not up to scratch, neither from the attacking point of view and the forward play. Staggered to see them making a decision by committee as they sauntered up to a line out. Hooper had fun rattling Burns, didnt' he? And why o why did 'we' wait so long to make substitutions eh, Mr Geech? When did we last see Bath doing what Glaws did to gain their try when they passed from one side of the pitch to the other with speed to get through the gap?
Waynes Barnes has gone down several notches in my regard as well. He didn't appear to be properly in control of the game from about 15 minutes in and Glaws took full advantage when they could.
Wonderful handbags btw, lads, which got the tension out of the way. Best I've seen for many a year! Barnes very rightly gave a yellow to each side to settle the matter.
Exeter away next up.
P.S. Was that enough noise for you, for those who think we don't make enough when needed? Or were you all in the bar and didn't notice?
