These performances bring back personal memories from times long ago, before the professional era of rugby union when called up to play an invitational or trial, the idea being to throw a scratch team together for some sort of extraneous purpose or celebration. Inevitably the chosen opposition would be a top notch side, either touring or tier one side.
The reality was usually a horrible loss, a mismatch and the inevitable injuries where players either didn`t commit or over committed and an unequal competition resulted .
My point is this Warriors side is just a throw together of youngsters trying to make a mark and the more established players avoiding the fight not wishing to risk it all being exposed and without the proper support.
Any semblance of a team, band of brothers, working hard as one has evaporated.
How the Warriors have found themselves in this position is long and complex but they need a talisman not these flakey characters.
i hadnt noticed, but your right this is exactly what it looks like out there

Claytons came from an Australian ad for a non alcoholic drink you have when you are not having a drink. It was about 40 years ago.


So Brown was a Claytons coach, the coach we had because we didn't have one.

Playing a player out of position, means you don't have a player for that position.

Claytons as a drink was a marketing disaster, having anything Claytons in a team is the same.

Seem's like Clayton's were 40 years ahead of their time. Non-alcoholic gin etc on the supermarket shelves.

Thanks for the info, I've always used 'Clayton's' in the correct sense thanks to my old man using the term, but I never knew where it came from!

Just to practice my usage, the Warriors are a Clayton's professional rugby league team.
 
They have basically given up.

Egan at 6 is like Blake Austin on the wing.

You don't crowbar someone into the team just because you have to.

You should be selecting a half, regardless how bad or inexperienced they are.

I guess we'd all be screaming out for Hiku now, we miss him a lot, well I do.



As for next year, pointless having a members forum as if I was management I'd be trotting out the line, came back home but still played away, a lot of disruptions off the field, sacked the coach, everything is looking better for next year.

And if Morgan is still on the coaching staff with the first grade team, next year, we will never make the 8.

We'll get pumped by the dogs next week.

This is a very good post.

Makes a lot of sense and you can actually see it in action.
 
We have discussed a lot about our lack of speed or structures. But another thing we seem to lack is power or brute strength.

Last weekend Souths pretty much just had to get to our 20 and setup. Someone like Mitchell will run hard and they can break through the defence.

We don't seem to have anyone who can just run hard and any defenders who are slightly out of position to make the tackle drop off or anyone whose confidence is down and may not be there effort-wise is found out.

A lot of our tries this year have been out wide with an overlap or the winger one-on-one with their opposite.

Lack of fitness and conditioning… our main problem since corvo left. Our guys were out on their feet, hence falling off tackles.

A decent trainer is more important than a new coach!
