We had the ball on their line for four sets and even I, sitting at home, knew what our plays would be. Hit ups near posts, one short ball for a backrower, kick. Rinse and repeat. Zero variety all season.
Defensively we have had no line speed all season. Defensively we have been vulnerable in the same spots all season.** Every opposition team knows it.
We have been blown out of more games first 30 mins than any Tigers team in history. Not ready, not prepared. Lots of our points have come when games are dead and opp has stopped caring. First 30 is the key and we have not been ready way, way, way too many times to make a case for keeping the coach.
Those who want to keep the coach are basically just doing so based on what came before him. Essentially, “the chef can’t cook…but let’s not remove him as the restaurant was no good before he arrived”.
Rather than, “maybe getting a chef who knows how to prepare food ‘might’ actually help with the quality of the meals”.
I doubt we sack him as it is too late and there is no window left to recruit now. We should just buckle up and get ready for rock bottom in 2022 probably. But there is no real denying anymore that this team is really, really poorly coached.
People will jump on and say “but he does not miss tackles or lack energy or come up with dud play after dud play in opp 20”…
But getting players to improve in all those things are his job.
Anyone who can’t see it by now…well, all power to you.
It will be a long off season, but we will all be back for 2022. Let’s hope things change.
Can this team of absolute idiots just f offthank you im done.
