In JK's defence, the signings who have not succumbed to injury have largely been very effective. I'm thinking of Boyce, Swainston, Ellia, and Glyn here. None of them were particularly heralded, but they have made good solid contributions to the side. I think most people have been impressed by Bothma. Saili has also looked good in the few minutes we have seen him. I think Smith's emergence though not unexpected, has caught a few people by surprise in terms of just how quickly he has become accustomed to premiership rugby - so Catrakillis may or may not be a mistake, we don't know yet.

But already, the list above contains significantly more successful signings than CoS made during his tenure. I can think of Hopper, Ward and Big Mo as successes. Then the list of Sackeys, Kennedys, Fairbrothers, PDJs and various other disasters seems to exceed the successes.

In addition, NEv is looking like a good attack coach & the last two games have looked a bit better defensively. So I think Minty gets until the end of this season. Mapletoft as head coach may be part of the problem. If he is, lets see whether JK deals with it.

JK was not an inspiring appointment, but at the moment he is all we've got. I'm quite excited to see what he does with the Jamie Roberts(assuming he doesn't re-sign) and Marlande Yarde money.

As I'm sure everyone knows, I rather think that Ellis and the pension company are a lot more of the problem.
