No doubt it's entirely the coaches fault, just like the well constructed first half tries were down entirely to the players.

Nope. But also no way the Hall try on half time was constructed from a planned coaching move.

Although they could have justifiably done so given that the coach stated he was happy with the first 60 mins but unhappy with the last 20 but would put that down to it being the 3rd game in 8 days for many players. The coach, of course, being the one to have selected many of them in all 3 games
Every player in our squad could probably earn more money with another club. But they prefer to sacrifice a few extra quid in their back pocket to share special memories. And playing at a place like Old Trafford on a night like this makes it all worthwhile.

The "tired" get out of jail card will hopefully run out soon though G especially as we have a 30 man squad with only 2 injuries!!

It ran out for me at Easter when he flogged virtually the same 17 in all 3 games and made less changes than any other coach in the league.

Especially with the Easter Monday game being at home against London, against a top 4 team i could understand but surely SOME of the fringe players/youngsters could of done the job against London at Headingley.

Fair points i'm looking forward to tomorrow night though the 9's finals there's some very good young talent on show who hopefully will be paitent enough to break through to the 1st team when the powers that be see sense.

I'd say that Ward aside, BM has made his bed as far as selection is concerned, at least until the cup semi. I wouldn't be expecting real changes until/unless we get hammered by Wigan.
