I'm struggling to see how turning over the ball about 30m from our line is relieving pressure. If they score there then we're only a score ahead and they have the momentum.

I get what you and JohnH are saying about creativity and giving players a bit of scope to try things though, and I was bloody bored under Wane. If it was a deeper kick for French to chase I'd be more understanding, Burgess isn't in the kind of form to be giving him a low percentage play to try IMO. We need to get the ball in French's hands more, in space ideally.


Fans have almost unanimously been demanding more excitement. We get a bit and people whinge as it didn’t come off.

Tbf I do think that Noble doesn't get as much credit as he deserves.

His appointment stopped the rot and whilst he took us as far as he could, he potentially started the mentality thing. If you remember back in the day Noble had a bit of a rep for his teams turning it on at playoffs time. I have no doubt plenty of guys learnt some stuff from that and took it forward into the Madge and Wane era's.

Madge was the main guy tho. He took an good, but underachieving, team and made them into GF winners over the course of one pre season. He introduced a new system in attack and defence and everyone bought into it.

Not to try and take anything away from Lam but our performances of late have really shown the steel that Wane built in to the core of this team over the years. The defence and the willingness of the backs to run through brick walls with the ability to keep turning up making tackle after tackle, set after set near our own line is mainly down to the work of Wane. Lam can take a lot of credit for varying the attack and the much better attacking shape but the determination and doggedness comes from the Wane era. We must be a horrible team to play against when we play like we did tonight. The only problem i fear is that we are due an off day after such a long winning streak and mammoth effort to get second place.

Wane?... you've gone through a horrid 8 months partly because of Wane... attendance down nearly 1/3 since he became 1st team coach...
A catalogue of off field embarrassments....Had he had have been something to be thankful for...there wouldn't have been the diabolical Edwards scenario.
Lam comes out of this with.so much credit...he literally has managed to polish up a shat.
Lam has gone up massively in my opinion of him and he would be my coach of the year.

I get you, but there's a difference between playing exciting rugby and throwing the ball away in your own 30 on 4th tackle when they have been building up pressure on our line. It's not even like it almost worked; if Burgess catches it then he's still getting bundled into touch.

no he wouldnt as the winger had turned and was behind him, if burgess still had any pace or gave a damn he would have got it and had the fullback to beat. If it had been the other wing it would have been interesting
