Although there has been many and many to come based on today’s performance, which has been the worst defeat for you under GS so far performance wise?

I think "under GS" is unnecessary/uncalled for. I'm pretty certain he and his team don't coach how to miss one on one tackles, drop the ball from a high kick , punt it straight into touch or give dull penalties away. Once they step on the park the players have to take responsibility and the majority were downright poor today (and the more experienced at that).

We’re continuing to lose lots of games of rugby and the things we were supposed to be improving on, are staying largely the same or getting worse. As I’ve said elsewhere I’m not calling for his head or saying he’s x, y or z games away from being under pressure. All I’m saying is I’m yet to be convinced and remain as sceptical as I was when I first saw him linked.

Right... it is their job to coach them not to do that though...

I don’t know if anyone has seen the interview with him after the game, but he admit the team weren’t prepared properly...

Why not?!

I'm fully blaming GS for this as he is accountable for the performance of the team. He was also the one who recruited his mates into Coaching positions at the club as well.

Would love to know what challenges George set them for this game. It certainly wasn't catching, breaking the gain line or scrumaging.

Next month Lance will be asking us for some more money. Good luck with that Lance.

It was the lack of determination that riled me. I would rather some academy lads giving their all played than have to endure some of that again.
A sad day for Gloucester Rugby.

GS and the coaches weren't on the pitch.

This loss is 95% down to the players. Leicester's win is 5% due to Borthwick.

Unfair for anyone to blame GS.

Is this the same GS who admitted that he and his fellow coaches hadn't prepared Gloucester for this match?
