I apologies if this has been tackled as an issue, but I read through many pages before deciding to start this thread. The Liam Knight episode provides the first REAL test for our new coach. Yes, we have performance pressure - but that is part and parcel of the role.... The Liam Knight incident is about culture, discipline, and the standards Trent wants to set for the professionalism of his teams, both now and into the future. I want to cast aside the player for a moment - I don't know him (or his dad) and to be honest, this post is not about the player, his actions, his stupidity etc. I want to see what Trent does on the back of this. Does he impose an alcohol ban? Does he put it down to bad luck? Does he over-react and call for the players sacking? Does he get the players to respond this weekend? As a leader, it is the actions you take under pressure situations such as this which define your future style,a nd set the culture. I recently read 2 articles which I found really interest - Potchetino (the Tottenham manager) makes his players shake hands before and after training every day, showing respect to each other and their hard work. Cheika (Wallabies coach) makes every player @ press conferences personally shake the hand of anyone in the room they have never met before - upholding professional standards within the team. What will trent do? What are his standards? And will his players respect him more, or less (even if subconciously) off the back of this incident? I am keen to see the type of man our new leader is.
