    Or lack of against the lowly rated teams cost us a lot of games. The team rocks up complacent thinking they just have to go through the motions to win. They don't seem to have the killer instinct and ruthlessness to put those teams away.

    When you look at it's the lack of ATTITUDE, go forward and it all crab style football, players standing flatfooted and waiting for someone else to spark the team. I know we're down on troops but this has happened consistantly over the years.

    They don't want to do the hard yakka first. They have no problem getting up for the bigger games. If we're dominant up front we can then utilise the talent out wide. It's something imo that has to be instilled in every player. Do the hard yards first.

    If you look at the losses against the slime and last night against the tits it was almost identical re. errors, missed tackles lack of go forward. All basic stuff that should be easily rectified.

    I think the team have the mentally of playing a flamboyant style of play no matter what. As much as I hate the scum down south they just keep putting those teams away over and over again, you've got to give them credit when their team has been consistantly in the 1,2 or 3 on the ladder over a number of years. (I know they cheated and I'll get that argument).

    When we're on song we're unbeatable but when we're bad we're very bad. 4 premiership points flushed away. We have the talent to go b2b and the boys know that if they don't do the Hard Yakka more often than not we get beaten so why does this happen so often?
