The crabbing started before the ball reached Hookie and seemed to carry on along the line, how senior international players and coaches couldn't resolve it is a mystery to me.

Spot on LL, conversely the opposition senior international players and coaches found it easy to defend against us for that very reason.

Yet, when BT played alongside Freddie Burns, the crabbing problem within the back line was non-existent.

Not sure I'm buying that the crabbing problem started at 9, and Hook was also affected by this.

Burns leaves, Hook comes in, and Billy's game begins to suffer. And let's not forget, it's Hook's penchant for crabbing across that saw him lose favour at 10 with Gatland and also during his time at Perpignan, as he became their utility player, as he also did with us.

Burns didn't have a scrum half that took several steps towards him before passing, there were3 main culprits and that axis simply didn't work

"It’s about having the confidence to go away and stick to our guns, even when we haven’t got the Shed behind us.”

I know we can't always offer rapturous support when things aren't going well but this has really got to me.... we should be behind the team all the time... especially when we're struggling

I think the point he is making is that when playing away they won't have the same level of support so they have to find it within themselves to raise their game not that the fans aren't getting behind the team.
