Underdogs or not, seems like Pricey doesn’t even back his own side to win it. Which doesn’t send out a great message does it? Sounds like he’s defeated already Price.

‘We are the biggest underdogs in Challenge Cup History’
Or something along lines...doesn’t sit well me these type of comments. It’s the type of comments you expect from a pundit or an extra wire player not your head coach.

I wouldnt't read too much into what a coach says in these circumstances. He's trying to put pressure on the opposition and relieve his team of it.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Mind games or not, I’m not really impressed with this type of spiel. Like the majority of his post match interviews recently.

So you're bigger underdogs than say Hull KR v Leeds 2015? Catalans v Saints 2007? Hudds v Saints 2006? London v Leeds 1999? Sheffield v Wigan 1998? And that's only the last 20 years.

It's absolute nonsense - you will have internationals like Ratchford, Charnley, Hill, Clark, Cooper on the pitch. Big NRL signings like Goodwin. England Knights players like Jack Hughes and Ben Currie. Players poached from other SL clubs for their performances like Mamo and Lineham. Damaging runners in the pack like BMM and Philbin.

Yet you're the biggest underdogs in Challenge Cup history? Give over.

Are we favourites, of course. Is it the most one-sided match ever played at Wembley in prospect? As I said, complete BS.


For those of us who have watched the last ten games, yes, it bloody well feels that way.

Can’t you go back to Redvee and enjoy the mutual cockiness and assured victory?

There's a direct correlation between the popularity of a coach's post-match comments and the results.

When you lose every week, whatever the coach says, will antagonise the fans. The coach has to say something though so is always on to a loser.

Nobody would have minded if Tony Smith said "we trained well all week", if we were winning.

It gets exacerbated when you have a coach who likes to talk a lot, eg Paul Cullen or Brendon Rodgers / Roberto Martinez in football. When they were having good seasons they had the press hanging off everything they said, seeing their words as the insights of genius. When results turned, their tendency to chat a lot made them easy caricatures.
