Given the players didn’t bust their arses to get a win or two for him at the end of the season, and in fact looked like they didn’t even want to go on the field in the first place!That’s hardly a glowing endorsement of the coach by the players.
Usually players will either come out and say things publicly and then go out on the field, all fired up and try to win a few games for their mate who’s in the firing line. None of the players looked like they gave a stuff. That’s either poor man management by Potter or the players not respecting him enough.
Fact is our defence was awful, we had big scores put on us week in week out. this comes down to potter and the defensive strategies employed as a team. Playing up and in defence, with wingers rushing in off their wing simply didn’t work for us and any team with a good half could get around us.
He used the bench extremely poorly at times. Leaving some guys on for way too long, giving others not merely enough time. That’s all Potter not anyone else.
When we were winning games at the start of the season much of it was off the cuff brilliance by Brooks+Teddy that got us points. Many of our games, even our wins were extremely ugly. A team with no idea how to attack.
And so let’s hope the board sied with those who see Potter for an hour or two every second week than those who are by his side everyday? Sure, that makes sense.
He may be a nice guy, but that’s not nearly enough to keep an NRL coaching gig.
