Album: Season 2012 - End Of Year Thoughts
Well that was horrible. <br /> <br /> A couple of things are evident following our abject displays this year<br /> <br /> -Bluey was clearly the wrong man for the biggest job in NZ League<br /> -We have to get fitter next year. It was clear early on that we weren't as fit as other teams. <br /> -We can't rely on the Jnrs to fill our team. Whilst they have been great, the guys promoted this year haven't been up to it. I'm talking about Hurrell - can't defend. Henry- I think he'll become a good first grade player but he needs a position. If he's a back rower he needs to make more of an impact or his career will be very short. <br /> -The NRL contract situation needs to be mended. Having players in your team hove signed elsewhere for the next year has been shown this year to be a nightmare. Maloney checked out ages ago. Brown has been awful. These transfer talks etc should be kept until much later in the year<br /> -We can't have two halves who can't tackle. Both JM and SJ have been a huge liability. Add in the penalties JM gives away constantly and tbh I'm glad he's going. <br /> -We need a top coach. Not someone going Ito his first role. For me it has to be Bellamy. <br /> <br /> Those are my initial thoughts on the year. Will add more wen my heads a bit clearer.<br /> <br /> What are yours?
