I feel a bit sorry for JK to be honest.
Yes we have a team of superstars in many positions, but, naming no names, its been obvious for a few years now that some players got an easy ride because of their reputation. The rot started under COS not JK. This may be a crucial season for Quins and JK, I suspect a few well known names will leave because JK does not value them as highly as they value themselves.

ITs going to be a tough year, and recruitment for the future will be key.

I sort of agree. There are times when some of the top players (Robshaw and Brown excepted) have put in some absolute stinkers and played with no sense of responsibility. It�s not �just the way they play� because at international level they never seem to be anywhere near as daft!

My contention is that they don't believe in our trust the coaches/systems.

But regardless of whose fault it is, you can't change all the players. Well, you can, that that would be rather silly. Rather, you make a change of manager/coaches as you know the players are good enough, yet underperform.

To steadfastly refuse to address that is, in my mind, negligent.

Would that not be a case of the players influencing the board over the choice if coaches? I'm not sure it would be good for players to have so much power.

Good point and yes, it would be the case. But the players always hold the power, particularly if they work as a group (e.g. England players going on strike). That's why it's important that they believe in the coaching and systems as they are far harder to change, quite simply because there are more of them. Furthermore, if even 2 or 3 are underperforming because of it, the whole team suffers as a consequence.
