It looks like the ship is being turned around and calmer waters lay ahead. I am aware however that our new DOR will not be taking over until August, so I guess his influence in preseason training and planning will be limited. I am therefore not expecting any sort of miracle change come next season but with the Gaffer's steady influence until then, what can expect to see change ?

In the nicest possible way Casual I think you are wrong. From the comments to date I would expect him to have a full input into what he expects pre season to look like with a view to preparing the squad for the style of play he wants the saints to play. For instance itís no good him wanting a rapid all court running game and the current coaching staff to labour on bulking up pre season. My friends in Wellington have suggested a lot less kicking will be the order of the day and playing the game at pace.
