Shame about Garner if true. Have always thought he had a lot of ability just needed to get more involved and up his workrate and desire. Some lateral movement D issues to improve on as well. Under a coach or a system that can get the best out of him he could be a very good player. For some reason historically WTs as a Club can’t seem to do this. Maybe Madge doesn’t get the response at training that he wants from Garner as well, as i have said before, if we are willing to let him go we must get a starting 17 edge player to replace him otherwise we are going backwards not progressing.

An absolute legend of the game!

Hadn’t seen that clip before- thanks for the link. What a thoughtful and humble guy ET is. So many players could learn plenty from him. I think we are losing some real qualities letting him go from our squad.

We are so close at times only to be let down by dumb errors and slow thinking. Too many mistakes when we are trying to hold or wrestle back momentum.
Talau, AJ and AD were all guilty of moving up out of the DLine or moving in to take players not theirs creating overlaps where there wasn’t one. It is obviously a trust issue or a lack of confidence in their own 1-1 tackling ability.
When you score 5 tries in a game there is no excuse to lose.

For the sake of maximizing our current roster i hope Madden proves able but if not I’d prefer to see Mbye step up at 5/8 and AD into centre. We obviously need a quality fullback (one with pace). This would give us some first receiver options and variety as well as kicking options.

Harry has given us all a picture of what “effort and intent” look like. I hope our remaining forwards have learnt something from him.
I am sure he will look even better in a team where blokes are lining up to make a run and winning the ruck, getting fast ptbs.
Seems like a great bloke as well, has that likeable cheeky grin and great team spirit. Maybe he’ll come back to us in a few years when we are better and deserve to have him.

One of our best in the effort department this season and always a professional attitude. Wish him all the very best, he deserves our respect and admiration.
I was surprised that the club didn’t also farewell our other departing players.

Run metres and PCMs from our whole pack have been low for most of the season, as has line speed and marker D, and our D around the ruck.
In other words our forwards are clearly below par in both A and D. It is pretty obvious where we need to concentrate our rebuilding efforts.

Well let’s hope under Madge those days are behind us. Maybe why there has been rumors of the training being too hard for some of our petals!

We shouldn’t be letting go of Garner at all without a replacement who is a top 17 edge player otherwise we are just shuffling the deck without moving forward towards a better squad.

I agree with the posters who attribute the Defensive issues to a number of problems, not the least being the quality of our players and the hunger or amount of effort offered up.
Most of it stems from our forwards however poor reads and poor technique 1 v 1 in the backs coupled with simple inability to number up are also contributing. Perhaps also our fullback is not directing the line well enough, he has certainly been out of position himself a lot. There is no trust in the ability of the man inside either which makes particular players rush up or come in when not needing to.
The backpedaling and sideways sliding in our own 20 really annoys me the most!
