I think it's hard to blame the coaches for between match non-contact injuries like achilles, hamstrings, or calves. Unless they have them sprinting for hours on end or going psychotic in the weight room then running them hard.
Impossible to know without more inside knowledge of how they are training. In the past 12 months I think they've lost their starting 10, 12, 5, 3 in between games. I'm probably missing someone.
I've been saying that for weeks and I was called a negative Nancy no nothing on these forums.I was holding on till now to say this, but it’s now clear sacking Rennie has been an unmitigated disaster. Hamish McLennan should be sacked
I have said it before. Loud mouth obnoxious hamish didn’t like rennies quieter and calm demeanor and wanted to bring in Eddie to act more like him.I was holding on till now to say this, but it’s now clear sacking Rennie has been an unmitigated disaster. Hamish McLennan should be sacked
I'd buy that excuse from Eddie if his selections/tactics made a lick of sense.That said. This Fiji team is stacked and we are about on par with England and wales now.
The damage from a pool exit tho shouldn’t be overstated…..I would say McLennan needs to go personally and depending on what happens next Eddie should think about where he is at.
Not sure what you do after that tho…….
Guess he gets the excuse of he only had 12 months to be fair but if this is any World Cup from 2003-2019, you don’t make it out of the pool and you’re gone.
Hire shaun edwards or Farrell after this.
Michael Hooper wouldn't have made an ounce of difference today. We were physically basted off the ball by the Fijian midfield and loose trio.Michael Hooper should have been picked.
I must admit Donalson seemed more assured than Gordon today. Even if he had little impact. Wouldn't be surprised to see Donaldson take the 10 shirt off Gordon for Wales.Hopefully Tate & Isaac for the halves next week & White shown the door - has to be Gorgon again as there's no one else so hopefully they can feed him some better ball....
