No secret that this game is important for the future of our club. I don't expect us to win but I expect us to compete, as we always should be.

If there is not a lift in attitude after last week then there is nowhere to go from here.

I am terrified at the thought of KP making a statement, and doing a serious job on us.

He has been making a statement most of the year to be honest, so I don't think it would take much more from him.

I am sure he'll always try to go up an extra gear against the team who wanted Coote over him.

Interesting Moose coming out and saying its an effort thing thats the issue, not an ability thing and i agree with him. As he said in not so many words, if you dont do the little effort things, you have no chance of competing. There were certainly instances when players just didnt chase back or do the one percenters you need.

Val and HTF certainly eases the pain, but right now, KP is the better fullback.
Yeah but he doesn't play for us. Maybe we should sweat on Turbo and Teddy, they are better again and don't want to be cowboys either.

It's refreshing that some in here actually see and understand the circumstances around salary cap etc. It is so easy to say, we should have kept X, should've signed Y, etc. You think accounting is hard, try balancing a salary cap.

Yep, its attitude, wholesale changes aren't the solution, the team is good enough to be much more competitive than they showed last week.

The players don't get a free pass, don't get me wrong, but this has to be the responsibility of the coach.

Yep, he is part of the problem as well. Problem i always think is about these players that don't do the one percenters is i dont think its something you can teach them. Its either a natural part of their game or it isnt.
