fat lock In short
Classens must stop kicking
Heathcote needs to learn to kick, pass, and tackle (ie needs to go away play some lower level rugby, and probably stay there)
Woodburn needs to learn to tackle
Banners needs to see a sports psychologist
Perenise needs to learn to scrummage
Vesty needs to learn to kick. Though his tackling / defence was one of the few high points
Hoops and Caldwell have got to pressurise the opposition lineout - though to fair at least we're starting to win the odd one of our own now
SIM needs to read a coaching manual
If you were to select a combined XV before and after the game how many Bath players would have made it? - Back row and Biggs - no wonder we lost.
Agree with most of this,Banner just needs a kick up the ar-e by dropping him to the bench for a few games..
Tom is nowhere near ready for the big games although a outstanding prospect,the same for Woodburn.
Classens is the best we have got at the moment and before anyone says it Cooke needs to improve.
The game ended with our last chance at the line out,at least Batty has three years to sort his throw out.
