sorry to interject but i think your positives are a bit optimisticWell here are some themes you will recognise
1) some wacko calls by the refs going against us
2) egregious decisions by our wings leading to very soft tries against us
3) developing players on the field who made ghastly errors
We are better than last year
Some intermediate players have grown over the off season
Coaches seem to learn from week to week and be willing to make selection changes unlike SK days. The Tuesday team list always worth checking out
we are not better than last year. 2 losses in a row to start.
some individuals look better, the team structure looks worse. defensively much worse.
So many changes, why? the season has just started, NB should have had everyone dialled in and all his backups organised.
yet to play a top 4 side, and to be fair i thought it might take 4 games to jell, but pulling defeat from hard earned victory is on the coach, not the players. As mentioned they are giving it there all for 80.
