A bit too much Sherry last night Bazzo!
Especially if you think we are competitive then you are totally deluded & please donít insult me by aligning me with a football supporter.

As a professional club there should be experienced players standing up and showing real commitment especially in the tackle , We have the worst defence in the premiership and most tries conceded from First phase , please tell me if if it not the defensive coach or his strategy at fault then who is? surely not poor money spending sods turning up every other weekend hoping something miraculous has changed since the last shambles .

Donít drink Sherry Grumpy one, must be your tipple. Of course we have the worst defence in the premiership...... we are bottom. The players miss tackles mate. Thereís your problem.

While we do have the worst defense in the league, our tackle completion stats are on a par with the rest of the league, so it's not entirely down to missed tackles. Missed tackles, narrow defending, poor positioning, concentration lapses, inability to stop a decent leg drive and poor ball retention have been really hurting us. Some of its coaching, some of its the players. To be fair some of it seems to be improving.

There was a really key piece in this interview for me, it was when BV stated that a team should be playing to the best of their ability, week in week out. They may not be the best team, but they will beat the top teams because they will have off days, but his team wouldn't. Hopefully he can instil this principle into us.
