I have to say I can't remember any players looking " fed up to the back teeth before they even kick off", in fact one thing which always sticks in my mind is that the team generally seem to give plenty of effort (though, yes, I'll concede the odd individual on occasion) and, to me, they try their best and put in the grunt, though clearly I have to concede the skill on show often isn't good enough. The effort suggests they do respect the coach though, for my money anyway.
Out of interest you're not THE Errol Stock, are you!!
Well I concede that I am referring to last season - as the performance against Warrington (home) did it for me.. I remember also the warm up before we lost to Crusaders (home) - boy were there some long faces on the field then - soon passed to us on the terraces that day.
This could be a long and complex debate - which matches the situation up there! Rather than swipe Micks thread - I will start another when we know who the coach is.
And a special BIG thanks - the first person to question my ID
No I am not the Errol Stock - but his name and his play have been burned in my head since 1965 - when I saw him play along with Garth Budge - two Aussies with brown, sun tanned legs, emphasised by playing on a snow covered pitch - just fantastic.. The joy of rugby league - memories that won't die and I still feel the same now as I did then....
