Absolutely embarrassing from Lauries yesterday - injuries or not that's part of rugby, you are only as good as the blokes in your 2nds/16s. All those 16s who dropped off in pre season because of the treatment from the coach I'm sure would have enabled a closer contest. There were some blokes who tried their guts out yesterday but they lack direction and are attempting some fancy game plan that the cattle they have isn't capable of, no defensive organisation either. Credit to ashgrove they were ruthless and very impressive across the park, their leaguies very good for them in the backs.
Again let's go back to their preparation - playing one game in Sydney against a 3rds and playing Pats who rested a number of their topliners against them.
It's not rock bottom yet...but next week against St Peter's will be if they can't perform better. If this rabble continues, expect some braveheart like scenes from the old boys to the headmaster - no SLC old boy can stomach losing to ashgrove, although a trial, 88-0 is a new record high loss for us in TAS/AIC history. This new coaching staff are really giving the old coaching staff a run for their money.
