If your gameplan is to go out and try to win on intercepts, you haven't got much of a gameplan.

Quins have got a quality squad and they've had some dreadful results and abject performances this season.

Gustard is a proven top level defence coach. He's as much of a novice as Skivs in the lead role.

I've simmered down since last night collectively it was crap.

But, going forward, our set piece foundation looks good. We have options in key positions, we have a back row that can be built around one exceptionally special talent, and we have some youthful talent in the backs that can be developed. Some have made the point that we need a banger in midfield, make Lawrence an offer, Worcester won't hold onto him for much longer.

This time next year Rodney.

He signed an extension in June, so can’t see him leaving for a while.

Indeed, but pro sport, contracts, so what? Marshall signed a new contract in January.

We’re obviously after a banger. RJVR fell through. Linked with Vakatawa and Hendrickson. No smoke without fire.

I am not either that the ball was not in contact with ES when it hit the line or that it went forwards, but my biggest issue with decision was that it was only viewed once, when you consider the endless replays we often see, and as on field decision was try, decision of no try should be only if clear evidence to reverse decision.


Sorry i thought we were talking about the one where Dickson says it would have been a penalty try and yellow if he hadn't scored.


Surely he should have awarded the penalty try, no chance of a missed conversion

We definitely were after a banger bosher type centre, but a lot has changed since then.

A complete overhaul of senior management and coaching team and our budget means that the shopping list may have changed.

That said, I still absoluletly want a new banger and some front row.

FT - The intercepts were not the game plan but were the result. They indicated they had a plan for us and it had worked. Watching th egame they were up mixed in our backline and disrupting as fast as possible. this negated our smooth backline flow and speed and whilst it didn't work 100% of the time it did enough of the time. They picked up the intercepts as a result of Glos carrying on with a fast flat passing sequence. Gustard was with a lot of smart people in his International role and for me has far more experience and miles on him than Skivs as a coach.

The problem was we didn't change the game plan and it cost us dearly. Once is a mistake, twice is a coincidence, three times is a pattern.
