Pivac dig at Cips and LRZ fitness

02 Apr 2021 19:31 pm:

Interesting quote from Pivac suggesting that LRZ wasn't up to standard last season due to spending too much time clubbing with a superstar at Gloucester who is no longer with us. Apparently he's now knuckled down since the departure.

Apologies if someone else has posted this, I couldn't find it anywhere when I checked first.

DC rightly calls it for the dross it is.

I didn't see that. Do you have the link out of curiosity?

Edit-
Don't worry - seen it. I'm not sure why Pivac made the comment then?

I hope there’s no mention of lady boys.

Pivac didn't name a specific player during that part of the conversation, just that LRZ was un-selectable because he wasn't fit enough at the international level to repeat speed, because he wasn't looking after himself as well as he should be and that he was enjoying a bit of nightlife with a player who was no longer at Glaws. The assumption is that said player was DC, but it was never said outright.

Why did Pivac need to make this comment? Totally unnecessary. Take the plaudits for winning 6Ns.it would be easy to read into such comments that he is trying to engineer a move away from Glaws for LRZ.

I strongly suspect that you’re correct FT, but why are you so adamant?

Whatever the truth, does Pivac think that telling this story will endear LRZ to him??

He did say it was a superstar. Having a quick think the only other one he may be referring to is Mostert maybe?

Anyway, I just find the need to say it utterly bizarre.

Pivac was asked about LRZ and why he didn't pick him earlier. Pivac said that he wasn't fit enough, that he couldn't repeatedly run at speed. Pivac alluded to reasons for this as being his lifestyle. No names were mentioned. Pivac then said that as a player had left Glos LRZ was now working much harder.
