This guy is no better than Richard Agar and we are stuck with him for 4 years. It looks as though he has lost the dressing room already. At least JJB got the players playing for him but he wasn't given a fighting chance.

This year is going to be tough to the end. We keep asking for the squad to be upgraded and some of our weaker players to leave. That's happening, and there are going to be some noses out of joint. Also quite possible that the likes of Tetevano want out regardless. So its not going to be the happiest of places this year. JJB's 'up and at 'em' approach worked a bit but is no way to run a team long term.

The Warrington, Huddersfield and Sts games have told us quite a lot. Namely that Smith can get our attack functioning far better than Agar, that our front row is utterly garbage which means we can't compete with the best in SL, and that Smith has already marked some cards for exit.

You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. Smith needs to be given a chance to fix the hopelessly imbalanced squad he's inherited. Under a salary cap it will take until at least 2024 before the majority of the squad is his choice.

I wish we were closer to Sts than we are, but at least we know that our squad almost at full strength is no match for Sts even when they are missing a few players.

Excellent post OWL. This is what you get when you neglect the cleaning for so many years, you can’t see the floor for clothes and dust…
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Given we will now be down to 2 props, one of which is the ailing Prior it’s hard to see a win v Hull and Cas in the next 2.
Toulouse away becomes potentially a very big game.
Toulouse have KR at home and Wakey away before playing us. They have Salford and FC at home after us, we will be losing at home to Wigan and away at Catalan.

We could be 11th at end of July and if, big IF Toulouse pick up form , looking over our shoulder at the drop . At best I reckon we will be 10th.

Although Smith needs to plan for next year, he also needs some results. He won’t get much of a honeymoon spell.

On a separate point, I could not see JJB last night

I'd agree on the worry about props but losing Tetevano is neither here nor there, Donaldson is adequate like for like cover.
