    It is apparent as the nose on my face that lack of pace has cost us big time this season.

    I can name about six games in which we have matched the opposition and lost, due to long distance tries scored by the opposition or where we have failed to convert pressure in to points. The loss of Snake and Wolf Man has been a factor but we have many players who are good in many ways but do not have the x-factor in terms of being able to run 50 metres or more.

    Hopefully something can be done to address this but you can't coach speed!!! Recruitment over the next few seasons needs to address this.

    Stewart, Williams, Whare and Hopoate would probably be our quickest 4 with Oldfield in there, and the first 4 have been injured, unbelievable

                I agree with that but have serious doubts if Stewart will ever be the player ( pace wise) he once was.

    We will have to wait and see

    That game against the Tigers last season he still had blinding pace.

    Have been watching Bowen with interest coz he has had identical injuries to Stewart, and while coming along slowly some of his sharpness has returned

    Have also been looking at Tate lately as he has had 2 knee reconstructions and he is in great form too
