It's not in fighting, it's just saying what a number of fans who I sit with are saying. It's true that we have not got the best 6 and 7 in the league. We have been bossed by a number of teams who have better players in those positions.
What I would give for a Handforth or Dalimore in our team.
Danny Yates has got two wins over Dallimore this season. As he did last season. I'll stick with a winning half-back.
I agree with the comments regarding the strangled style of rugby, very simple and predictable. I do wonder at times who actually trains with who. Are the saints lads drafted in, training with hornets or saints? Cos surely if there not training with hornets then they won't be fully aufet with the plays. Yeah they will know how to run the simple 1's and 2's but they can't get to know what each player can do and is likely to without running through a 100 times.
The whole drafting of another teams players in can only deminish team morale as well, sure it may bring up the average in terms of ability but i think it's more important to have a tight small squad than a big squad of talented strangers. The dual reg has benefitted both clubs but I'd like to see hornets try and go it alone, would that mean the end of IT as coach?
AFAIK, the only dual reg player to have played with us in the last month is Matt Fozzard. The other 16 on matchday have all been 'ours'.
