I'm sure the weather conditions will see Agar put out a side carrying a bigger bench and I think that's going to make things interesting today.


I think in the last year we’ve improved quite a bit in that we can now often beat poor/average teams by plenty.
Today is an big test against a tough side with plenty of quality players in a big game. They are clear favourites but it’s a great opportunity for us.
I’m particularly interested to see how our overseas players turn up when the pressure is on.
We can’t afford the usual Hurrell 2 knock ons in our half, for example.

I am comfortable I am spot on. Nobody moaned at those particular signings. Simple as.

It's such a shame the archives from leedsrugby and southstander, and this place aren't saved for 2002/03 to reveal how wrong you are.

We do have stuff from a bit further back where headless chickenery was the name of the game.

On Dunemann, we only have RSRL to go at where it was mocked.

Lets not pretend every signing we made in that era worked out. They didnt. Paul Bell, Brett Mullins, Ben Walker, David Barnhill, Mark O'Neill even Bradley Clyde was far from roaring success stories.

The ambition of the signings was greater, you cant compare those with Evans etc but the club wasnt saddled with debt at that point like it is now.

Very few universally accepted signings - Ali, even Buderus was slaughtered by some
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

That i completely agree with Vickery & Ben Cross also spring to mind but the point still stands more youngsters got more gametime & players like Evans Ferres etc didnt get games before them.
Tony Smith dropped Connolly & Adamson foe Mathers & Jjb ditched Cummings for Calderwood.
Agar has a very promising set of young players who are more than caoable of playing SL some more games & minutes than others nows the time to use them more often imo.
P.s Kudos to Agar for giving Tommy H a bench spot yesterday thats great to see :thumb:
