2015 - Positve and negatives for Jason Taylor

POSITIVES

  • Outstanding selection of strength and conditioning staff
  • Improved the sides points differencial with competitive efforts
  • Playing Lawrence in the back row
  • Bringing on Cherrington
  • Decent enough Team Selection with little depth, didnt play players out of position ala Sheens

NEGATIVES

  • Trying to adapt a different clubs style of play entirely
  • Banning Richards kick offs
  • Shackling Moses and Farah
  • Playing one out football against Cows and Newcastle which killed the teams season in its tracks
  • Ringing up a Radio Station to defend himself
  • Hurling you know what on previous coaches and players at the club
  • Terrible handling of Robbie Farah situation
  • Saying winning is not important, performances are
  • Saying the scoreboard is not important
  • Some dubious favourites like Lovett
  • Continuing to refer to previous years poor defensive efforts and lack of success

Positives:

tapping Farah on the shoulder and telling him to leave

Negatives

everything else.

I want to see how the lads go next year without Farah, I’m just curious to see how well the team develops in the offseason but I’ll dare to say at bear minimum we will need to be pushing for a finals berth or we will be in the market for a new coach.

There have been some positives from JT. Moving on Richards and even Galloway I think are also good decisions.

The game plans/tactics that he tried to get us to use showed someone with no idea.

The two big questions are will he learn from this year and will he have the respect of the players.

Positives for me aside from Eddies

  • Bringing Kevin into the side
  • Moses toughness and then once he was able to play his style the glimpse this 20yr kid showed us, he would have learnt a huge amount this year which will only serve us better in the years to come.
  • Moving on the veterans who where great for us over the last 10yrs
  • Halatau had a 2nd lease of life
  • lack of injuries
  • major sponsor
  • defensive structure improvements
  • way the kids kept their heads up all season unlike years gone by
  • Teddy and how he stood up for us


    Negatives
  • kicking game
  • Lodge
  • playing Buch and Lovett
  • Farah and how it has been managed
  • we avoided the wooden spoon by F/A despite our defensive improvements
  • Brooks 2nd year syndrome
  • Tapau minutes

You seriously list that as a positive for Jason Taylor?

Fair enough comment. The ball is now entirely in Taylor’s court now and if he has not learnt from his many 2015 mistakes he will be on ground very much more shakier than when he last met David Fa’alogo. I hope he spends all his time prior to pre-season training on studying on how to be a better coach.

I agree ringing up to defend himself showed that he has a fairly thin skin. But the fact he’s remained silent and kept the Farah stuff, at least from his end in house has been a positive. The S/C has been his biggest accomplishment.

Positives - thank god that season is over
Negatives - waiting another six months for more torture

positives for taylor- he’s still there and will be next year

negatives
his lack of media skills and public relations management

Positives:
Form of Tedesco and use in passing game.
Switch of Lawrence to the back row.
Injury management.

Negatives:
Poor use of bench cost us games earlier in the year taking off Taupau, Galloway and Woods at once.
Poor player selections i.e.: Lovett, Milone, Hoeter. Leichardt game against Penrith Lovett in the centres cost us the game.
Excuse making and wooden demeanour in front of the media.
Regression of players not named Tedesco, Lawrence and Moses.
Bad game plans 5 hit ups and a mid field bomb.
Poor handling of Farah situation.
Shockingly bad win loss record.

This is pretty funny.

Yes lol. Surely he will learn. Surely he will review the year and learn from it…maybe.

He will be a much better coach in 2016 and beyond.

That isn’t saying much. He needs massive improvement. Lets hope that happens.

Positives-less injuries
Negatives-too long to list
