Chester is the long term answer to me.
You don't sack a coach because results have gone against him when most of his team is injured.


I certainly don't think Chester should be sacked, but to say 'most' of his team are injured is a bit much! Ironically the last match we won was at Hudds wasn't it? Randell's first game back, no Ashurst, England, Miller, Brough..... yet we won. We haven't won any since they have returned. You could argue last night we had 5 players out who would make the 17, but it's always arguable who you would call regulars. It has been a nightmare re. injuries, it was our turn I suppose, we've been lucky the last 3 seasons in that respect, but I still think some of the performances when we had almost everyone available earlier on weren't great. I think next year is Chesters' last chance if you like to take this 'team' forward, after all it's he and his players who have been constantly crowing about playing in semi-finals, talking has to be done on the field eventually..... :?

We need a director of rugby and a new conditioning team. Without them, the best we can hope for is a mediocre end to this season


We were pretty good last season and didn't have one, you keep plugging this one but it doesn't stack up. You did it on another post when you said JK was above CC, he wasn't CC was the top dog, Kear was an advisor. It worked OK but it worked just as OK without him.

Also I'd love to know a RL club where these directors of rugby have made much of a difference, do Saints or Cas or Wigan have one? Leeds do and and he's their first ever, that's working out well isn't it :D

Sadly, I think the our recent dip isn't particularly the number of injuries we've suffered; we should still be able to play decent rugby with the "stand-ins", but it was when a certain person left to take over the reins at Bradford Bulls. Kear and Chester, were the nearest we have been to a dream team of coaches. Chester just doesn't seem to be able to cut it for me on his own.

Kear doesn’t seem to be cutting it at Bradford either . Just don’t get the obsession with him at the moment .

Not so much of an obsession, cocker. He just seems to bring the best out of players and gets them to "play" when their backs are against the wall. Don't thick he's quite got the raw material at Bulls that he's had elsewhere.. Silk purse and sow's ear and all that. I'd have him back at BV tomorrow.

If a team is busted it’s busted . Not only do we have the injuries keeping players out but we are having to play injured players . Hull fans or some of them wanted rid of Radford not long ago when they were going through the injury horrors , not so now !!

Don't get me wrong. I'm not one of the "Chester out" brigade. Not at this point in time. I would just like to see him paired up with Kear again. I think that's when we played our best rugby.

It is a shame Jowitt is not fit because I would be tempted to move Hampshire to scrum half and rest Brough. I guess we must hope that because it is Huddersfield he ups his game because I am not seeing much creativity from one of the main pivots.

At last - and thankfully - Both cudjoe and fergie will play on Friday.

2 other good points / smilers. The giants supporters association made Danny brough pay his entrance fee to watch giants academy this afternoon - well done guys- plus, he really was limping heavily.
