Re: Is it really that bad!?

I reckon there are three criteria for judging impact of injuries on the squad:
- numbers: between 25% and 33% of senior squad injured is normal (no stats, just gut feel). For us, that is between 10 and 14 players. I think we are currently at 12 so normal, when it was 16 it was an issue
- concentration: back row has been our problem for most of the season and we still have 3 out of 6 injured. Lock and hooker have also been problems, especially with Glynn and Ward providing back row cover.
- talisman players : the ones who make the team tick. For me, Horwill, Robshaws, Care and Brown. All there currently although we had a bad spell a few weeks ago.
So definitely injuries have been a valid excuse, but only in the back row currently. The current problems seem more to do with suspensions and disciplinary, is things within our control.
