    I am going to expand on all of this with a new topic tomorrow, maybe a specific article.

    But there was something very obvious missing tonight, actually someone, it was present in more ways than one, and he was not. Something he did was missing.

    It was of course Beaver.

    I think tonight we finally found out the full impact of his loss and the answer to the question "How much will we miss him"

    I want to preface the next part, with the fact that there are different types of leadership some lead by following and showing their presence beaver is one of those people

    We missed his maturity and we missed his presence.

    We rushed things where cooler heads would have prevailed. Tonight we needed leadership when some took that upon themselved, Orford for one, things start looking up, then they dropped their leadership and things fell apart.

    We don't have anyone out there who can be captain at the moment. I wouldn't vote any single player as a captain of the team, and I think that is a glaring issue that is why our mentality can not get back on track!

    TBH the one person I think who will one day make a great captain, but who IS NOT ready yet, is Ballin, one day he will be a great leader, but he needs to be there for 80 minutes.

    I think we need the team on a leadership course and we find ourselves some direction

    Said the same thing at the game, Beaver was our Captain last year, Orford was just his assistent that did the things like press conferences etc that he didnt want to do.

    IMO the boys are lacking heart.

    Last season they had the disappointment of losing the GF, they wanted to come back bigger and better.

    This year, they've been there, done that & got the t-shirt. The desire isn't there from what I can see.

    I just watched the replay and the performance in the first half was very good. They defended for 6 sets on their line near the end. The second half was a mistake-athon. Still, now that I have dried off, it wasn't the performance of a team that will pick up the wooden spoon. I really, really hope Lyon is ok. There was just sheer panic last night and no thought for clever play in greasy conditions. Des needs to get some heads sorted out.

    funny ****er aren't we, is that how you justify having a miserable lonely existence. Plus the cherry on top is that you are from NZ. The little bitch of the rest of the world.
