Just came to the forum and had the pop up advert "We'll get rid of wasps for you". I feel sad that my first thought was "no need, they are going to die out by the winter" (no pun intended).
I can think of lots of contributory reasons, new partnerships bedding in etc. But ultimately there is a lack of maturity and composure that with a Shaun Edwards type waiting in the dressing room I doubt any one would dare to let continue.
If each player does their job properly then improvements will result, maybe not immediately but they are good enough individuals for it to happen. At the moment it is as if players have no faith in a system, or no system, so they go off piste and headless and we have seen too much of that in the last 18 months. They stand around in a flap waiting for a whistle that is not coming and the other team keep playing, or go on one man offside missions. As for the comedy text about the technology in the new kit making in almost impossible to drop the ball (paraphrased) well...
Whether with Dai or without the coaching needs an upgrade because all the problems are recognised but no one seems to be able to sort it.
I don't belive we have worse players than Saints, and they were a basket case 2 years back, but they made changes (and brought through young players) and now look, a pretty good team.
Not seen last night's match yet, only had radio, flying home to watch it now. I think it will be depressing.
IMO we have enough good players to be a lot better, but first need to stop being a shambles.
