Apart from "forwards no good" πŸ™„ Our forwards are too small, too weak and get dominated too often. Solid performances and winning teams are based on a go forward pack. Simple.

Ignore usual alarmist stuff like "forwards no good". I also disagree with the Briers theory. My view is we're a "new" team in terms of personnel and challenging for honours. We play weaker teams and start to believe that we just need to turn up.

Wakey players are fighting for their livelihoods. We see Cats and Hud both lose, and conclude were comfortable in 2nd. Go in with wrong attitude, Wakey get in front and were struggling.

I'm not happy with this, and not justifying the response from professional players, but it's a learning process. It's been said before that Saints get beaten, but they don't often get out-enthused, or lose through lack of commitment. Something we need to learn - maybe Matty Peet needs to learn how to counter it too as it's been evident too often recently.

Still think we can beat Saints in GF btw.
Good post
+ 1

I was there today & Wakey played like a team knowing they need to win every game & they played well. Was stood with Lee Briers’ Dad the whole game & Matt Peet’s in the first half.

The only thing that spoiled it IMO was the going down injured in the tackle stopping the game for several minutes then getting up & playing as normal. They, Wakey, did it quite a few times during this game. The young refs need to learn about play acting spoiling tactics.
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

So far it has been, but then there's been no major blueys, It's just all the controls :D

We are at the business end of the season, why would we blood youngsters now?
Most likely to finish second and can afford to take risks to rest and rotate ?
Do you mean settle for second?
You honestly think 1st is possible? No chance.

I'd replace everyone but Cooper and Farrell, but that's just me
Havard? Cannot be serious.
