Why would Ivan explain this,,?
Thats what I thought when I saw the title.
Cos the fans (us) want to know.

For sure we should get rid of Godinet and McIllwrick. if they arent going to be used we would be better off with cheaper options in reserves.
Cherrington is better than both and could be used in first grade.

Parcel is the ticket tho.
I cant come around to Cherrington. I think he is on the same level as those boys.
Its an opinion!

That would mean he'd have to bag his own players. Which coach bags their own players? No-one would want to play for a coach who bags his players. Thats why he wont explain.

An honest assessment shouldn't be taken personal.

If I told u that you aren't a good contributer to this forum cos I don't recognise your user name cos u don't post enough...
Would u consider that a bagging?

Nothing personal but clarification on the hooking role would really clear a lot up.

I think you people should remember that Liddle had both shoulders operated on in the off season then picked up a Sternum injury .Thats pretty tough on a 20 year old .Give him a break I think by the time we make the semis if we do he will be playing well .Even now when hes on the field hes better value than anyone else were got

Ahh, the what ifs.....
He needs time to recover and develops.
And we need a hooker.

The situation we find ourselves is getting beyond a joke and I think an explanation of what is going is needed from Ivan. I think the WT fans deserve some kind of understanding of whats going on.
What entitled rubbish. Ivan is employed to coach our team and is doing an incredible job. No explanation is needed, we are not entitled to anything. Does he have to come out and explain why our defence has been turned around from worst in the league for years on end to the best?

Liddle is never going to be fit enough hes too injury prone.
I may be wrong but hes been injured alot more than Ive seen him play in the last 3 seasons.

I think it’s pretty obvious what Cleary’s doing...none of our hookers can get through 80mins.

ET is a great defender and I think he’s just plugging the middle and taking some of that initial contact at the start of the games.

I’d give Farah an opportunity to come home.
He is better than what we have combined....so yeah...bring the old tabbouleh home for his swansong...

McIllwrick wont be seen again, thats whats happening.

For whatever reason Ivan does not rate the guy. I dont either, pure reserve grader if ever there was one.

Yes he may be a better hooker than Taylor but Taylor is a million times a better footballer.

Reynolds is looking really good at dummy half, may just fix the issue.
Reynolds really good at dummy half ? his a 5/8th full stop , he took an age to decide what he was going to do with the footy yesterday , watch the last set of the game yesterday and you will see that he went from dummy half 2 metres out cause he had no idea what to do ( maybe the halves fault for not calling it not sure ) .
Benji has had his time in the sun and Reynolds needs to be there,
I don"t know what standards a dummy half has to have to "look really good" but i would have thought throwing the ball on to ones chest would be a prerequisite.

It's pretty obvious that we need a recognised hooker quick smart.....

I reckon we should chase Kurt Baptise, Danny Levi or Michael Liccha.

None of the above are starting at the moment and we might be able to snare one prior to 30 June.

Thoughts????

Maybe another dozen or so Hooker threads will make it happen...

We need a hooker more than we need Mbye. Unless Mbye plays hooker. But he's not coming before June 30 so its irrelevant. Lichaa would be handy.
