IL and KR have to be thinking about changing coach.
Lam came in and said he was gonna change things, still waiting.....
If any anything he’s made us an average team

When Powell goes off why do we play a man of steel 7 at 9 and a World Cup winning 9 at 7?
And the most underrated second rower at loose? Its baffling

Farrell has been wasted. He’s best on the edge, hitting gaps and angles.

Should put Isa there or another forward who doesn’t have skill / eye for a gap.

That 20 in 2020 is looking a tad silly now.

Time for a change.

In fairness to IL and KR, Lam was meant to be a stop gap until Edwards started.

Thanks Shaun.

Anyway, time for a more experienced coach methinks, and not just based on today's result, but on the last 2 years.

Average is being generous.

When was the last time we were nilled twice in a row?
I was thinking that
2005 by the same teams

70-0 Leeds
75-0 saints in the cc too

Too late but at least we haven't been nilled.

Another thing that drives me to distraction is that after every kickoff by the opposition our sole play is a pass inside to Isa and occasionally to Farrell who take it up to the set defensive line and go down with the ball, first tackle wasted.
If we are going to play that the ball has to go to a big forward who might break the line.

Isa and Farrell are simply too small for both to play in the second row together.

Thank goodness for Harry Smith. At least we aren't nilled twice in a row.
