It was a very good turnout for such short notice and I was pleasantly surprised at how well Prycy spoke. Calm and sensible.
Whether he and Schofield can deliver on the pitch is another matter of course but it sounded positive. GM sounded positive at the last forum mind so it does I guess it doesn't really mean a thing. If a coach isn't positive we might as well go home
it was interesting to hear Karl back up GMs musings that the players ignored His instructions. I thought this sounded ridiculous when GM rolled it out at his after match interviews but apparently it did go on. It sounded like the reason for this might be that players are fully aware that they aren't going to be dropped when you only have 17 fit players available, but it tells us all we need to know about the relationship in the dressing room! Was I alone in assuming Mr Sykes was the main culprit?
All in all some reason for optimism but my concern remains that we just won't be good enough, especially given where we are now. There was talk of maybe trying to get another player in when the new coach is on board and it sounds like we will be trying a new half back combination this Sunday but even without the obvious injury crisis have we got enough quality on board I wonder??
only time will tell!
Fingers crossed for Sunday but it's a shame our opponents are Fev. Another go at swinton would have been preferable!
