Anyone who thought we would seriously challenge for honours this year was optimistic beyond even my rose coloured view. Early days in a new era, defence has improved, hopefully attack will as well I’m prepared to wait and see. It’s likely to be a bumpy ride for the foreseeable future.



I don't think many did that. I for one said we have no excuse not to be out of the top 3 after the money invested.
There is a difference.
Currently I'm rather disappointed however there is plenty room for improvement so I'm not despondent.

To be in the top 3 we would need to getting better results than 1 of the following

Leeds, Saints, Wigan.

Not going to happen.

I Like his soundbites, Maybe I'm being a sucker but it just sounds like he knows whats going wrong and he's trying hard to get them fixed.
Towards the end of his reign you genuinely felt Tony Smith didn't have a clue and the Game of Rugby league had simply passed him by.

this from the WG:
https://tinyurl.com/ybclst3f

“It’s a really important game against Catalans this weekend. We have to play to our standards,
The big thing is being able to execute our attacking shape and do it more so under pressure.
On the flip side, there has been a lot more contact and defensive work this week.

We’d love to be a bit higher than where we are at the moment and we understand what’s letting us down. It’s a matter of being able to do it in a pressure situation.

We’ve been applying that pressure in training, but at the same time we have to change our mentality.

When something does go wrong, we can’t double it up.
We fully understand where our penalties are coming from. We know how we can fix it, but it’s about having the attitude to actually do it out on the pitch.

Once we get that out of our game and eliminate our errors, it gives us more of an opportunity to play the sort of football that we’ve practiced.”


that said he will be under some pressure should we lose.....

Think we need a reality check regarding some of these calls for Price's position to be under threat.

2 simple points,

1. No away game is a gimme in SL. It might not sound good but we could lose all 11 away games and not one would be a 'shock'.

2. Of our 3 home games, the 2 defeats have come against the 2 sides who are more likely than any others to be contesting the Grand Final.

With those 2 points in mind I fail to see how anybody can really question our start or question Price's immediate future.

Yes, performances are pretty uninspiring but I think we all knew it wasn't going to be a quick fix after the shocking state we were in at the end of last season.

Price needs at least 1 full season, some proper recruitment and the opening 6 or 7 games of next season to be properly judged. Anything sooner would simply be a knee jerk, panic reaction.
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

Not sure how Price will be under pressure should we lose. Smith went 5 years with underperforming and not winning anything. The club won't pull the plug after 7 games.

So are you saying "the club" has learnt nothing following "underperforming"?

He as a 2 year contract, can’t see him being replaced his season.

It would be very foolish and unfair to deny Steve Price at least a season and start of next season to get things going in the right direction. I can't believe anyone is even considering replacing him after only 6 games! Just give the poor bloke a chance and some time to impose his experience and expertise on this group of players who have been atrocious for over a year now.
