1) I think relying on ring fencing is a really terrible tactic, considering we have no idea if itís coming and if it does, what form will it take.
2) Someone used the phrase missed opportunity. Thatís exactly what this season is becoming. Being relegated sucks. But itís a chance to step back and say, what did we do wrong and who is the future of this club. Based on that, Deano thinks last years tactics werenít wrong and mediocre 30+ year olds are the future. We are squandering a golden opportunity.
3) Someone asked what do we expect. And no Iím not expecting regular top 4 on our budget. All I ask from my rugby team is to be well coached, tactically astute and featuring a majority core of talented home grown players. If we do that and we still get relegated, fine. Thatís just bad luck and would show the Prem has become all about the money. But I honestly believe if we did that, the results would come.

How much more exciting and encouraging would it be if we came out with


And said letís do everything at pace, with extremely high basic skills. Letís know our game plan and everyone be confident in it. And weíve got mega experience with Takalua, Flood, Tait etc. on the bench if someone is struggling.
