The argument on here is becoming pretty circular. Haskell can hardly be held responsible for the form or fitness of Wood or Brussow. I fail to see that we have a surfeit of back rowers considering the attritional nature of the position and possibility of call up if it goes exceptionally well.
I entirely agree we seem to lack a top class 8 but that was compromised by Louis Picamoles upping sticks unexpectedly and never being replaced before turmoil descended.
Equally at 13 due to terrible circumstance a vacancy has arisen. The quality of player required are not a dime a dozen and even given unlimited funds, which we donít have, we are probably not an overly attractive destination right now. Leaving aside the fact that the player the new coach wants may not be currently available.
As stated before the first thing we must do is arrest our decline and make sure we do not find ourselves in a battle to avoid relegation. Then and only then can the new coach start to build back to a top 4 team. This whole thing is much more than a one year project
