We need to score more tries and concede less, we can worry about the goal kicking once that is sorted, goal kicking I am more noticeable when you're struggling to score tries.

Some may scoff, but goal kicking is CRUCIAL.
Cast your minds back to the 92/3 season (the one before Davies arrives) and we lost/drew about eight matches by six points or less, and we finished eighth. Turn those defeats/draws into victories with a top notch kicker,and we're near the top.

FYI. Our kickers that year were Chris Rudd and Tony Thornley. Even Bob Jackson was taking them in one game. Hardly Botica-esqe, are they?

It's not rocket science to realise that when we've won stuff/finished high in the table, we've had a top kicker
Hesford
Woods
Davies
Hodgson

As I said. Crucial
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

After tonight's SL semifinal, I'd say goal kicking is pretty crucial.

There's a few plastic scousers who'd agree with me

It is probably worth between 4-8 league points a season and at the top or bottom that can be massive!!!

Maybe we should look at players in RU there must be some lads there who can kick goals from all over the place even if they don't offer much else.

Yep priority number 1 for the new coach
And not someone who kicks 6/6 when it doesn't matter
