Re: Simple not Premiership

The Saints board should be on their knees thanking PRL that London Irish have as tough a run in as Saints at the back end of the season. We are a Premiership team but we are playing rugby that worked three or four years ago and no longer fits the mould. In simple terms the game has moved on but Saints have stagnated. Whether or not the coaches have run out of ideas is irrelevant because they do not have the courage to change the way the team is told to play. This is a bunker mentality in which any win will do. For a team that was top of the league at the end of September, the last three games should have been seen as three very winnable opportunities to consolidate at the very least a top six position.

Quite what they will do for the two games against Ospreys will be interesting as the pool is already a dead rubber for the club and the clear priority has to be the Premiership with three very, very tough games against Chiefs, Quins and Glaws next up. If the weather is poor next saturday evening the crowd could be minute by our standards.

Hopefully the media department will stop playing that excruciating video of players saying how wonderful a full house at the Gardens is because it is not that way anymore.
