Still not working mate.

Lawrence is kidding if he really thinks this. Maybe he is trying to paper over the fact that he was in the 5 worst centers in the whole comp this year

What do you seriously expect them to say?

"Yeah, we didn't try. Effort was never there, we never really cared about the year. I think a way of fixing things is to sack myself and the coach. Benji is terrible."


??????????????????????????????????????????? :bash

Sorry guys the link works on my iPad. Lawrence was interviewed post match and was asked what went wrong all season and Lawrence said "the effort was there" all season the execution let them down...crap the effort was there in only a handful of games they mostly failed to turn up and put in.... Their effort the last two games was sub standard...

Still no go I'm afraid. Just keep getting this:

The path to the requested does not exist
No output buffer was generated by this JFusion plugin.

But I gather he thinks the team has been putting in all year? Bloody ridiculous and shows why mediocrity is so readily accepted at this club.

In most games this year they didnt put any effort in until they were 3 tries down. FACT.

Just don't say it... They should allow themselves to be criticized

He didnt have to say anything about effort.

How about 'we werent good enough...we have had a very disappointing season but rest assured we will do whatever is necessary to bounce back next year. We are shattered with the results of what promised to be a great season and there will be a lot of soul searching taking place over the next few weeks. We will be back."

surely that is better than coming out with lies that the whole league world can see straight through?

I am sick of the spin coming from this team. For once, someone needs to tell it as it is.

I.e: It has been a terrible year, we simply weren't good enough.

Just heard the interview and you can hear in his voice that even he doesn't believe what is coming out of his mouth.

I think these players at least owe it to the fans to come out and admit they performed well below what they are capable of. That despite the injuries throughout the year maybe there were some games where some of them were guilty of not putting in 100% and having enough pride or respect for the jumper they were wearing and the fans who passionately support the club.

I don't know why these guys are so keen on being interviewed - if its unavoidable surely they could say we haven't performed up to expectations and leave it at that.

The more articles that come out from the club the more I realise just how stupid they think the fans are.

They gave trained hard, no doubt. Ran lots of miles, sprints, lifted weights, ate well.

But the results of the hard work are not there. They appear to lack strength, speed and endurance, and at times, appeared spent after 15 minutes.

Blind Freddy could see that the training regime did not hit the right notes and our guys did not match it with the other teams.

I don't think the S&C coach will see out Xmas
