Robin, we knew JB was a young untried coach. the idea was he would learn as he went along, and he would have to do it it quickly. some of us accepted that this would mean losing games along the way. but as soon as the losing games came along, some supporters wanted his head on a stick, spouting on about this team winning the league for the last 4 seasons, except itwasn't this team that  won those 4 league titles, it was a new one. would things have improved if he had been given a longer run, i don't know. but we got shut cos it was vital to finish in the top 2. now all of a sudden we are asked to write this season off, and judge AH on next season. it's a funny old world.

i hold my hands up. i tend to take people at face value, and i believed what the man was saying. mainly because i so wanted it to be true. i was, and am, convinced that superleague is beyond us without a financial benefactor. which is why i believe that now, we have to set our sights on being a good middle eight team, and our scouting and recruiting should be aimed at that level. Batley and Dewsbury are now the models for us to follow.

i agree with what the board are trying to do, ie looking to the near future. easing some of the older end out and bringing younger talent in to carry us through to superleague. but the trouble is we are not replacing with quality atm. it all looks shambolic to me. lets stop this mad dash to sign everybody available, and look at where we are weak and sign top quality in those positions. having seen todays press release i am a little more hopeful. hold on, it's going to be bumpy. but i still love this club UTR

i sat looking around at Batleys ground yesterday, it was bathed in sunshine and looked great. what Batley have done over the last few years whilst still keeping a good competetive side on the pitch, is incredible. they should be very proud.

#2930556 The new Featherstone Rovers Head coach is..............

Posted by oldrover on 16 May 2014 - 07:04 PM

Have Assistant Coaches at NRL clubs not joined clubs outside of SL before? The way that certain people at your club was mouthing off last week, that money was not a problem and you could get anybody you wanted its a strange appointment that you get a coach with no experience as head coach at either SL or Championship level . A person who has never experienced being under pressure as head coach and what is required. Being assistant coach is completely different to being Head Coach.  Also that your last coach, had no experience as a head coach and allegedly wasnt up to it your club then decides to go for somebody from a similar background with no experience is a surprise. Featherstone publically stated last week they expect to be a top SL team in a couple of years and yet within a couple of days of this they are a dual Reg club with Wakefield- there great rivals. Then your club announce a person who has no experience at coaching at that level. Your clubs public statement last week was very positive and brash. The news after, has maybe shown the reality of the situation at Featherstone and that this wild statement last week was a bit foolish. With respect Fev stand little chance of being a top SL club in the next 5 years and the past few days have shown that

thank you for your concern. noted
