Booth is a good coach and has markedly turned around the Ospreys. Compare them now to the depths they were at with Tandy/Clarke. The damage done will take years to fix, and Booth has slowly but visibly improved the squad as he can. One by one he’s gotten rid of some of the paycheck collectors.

I think it’s almost mandatory for a journalist these days (who wants to make his/her way to the top) to retain his credentials and integrity by offering up only considered and thought provoking pieces, with at least some balance and analysis.

This recent article was weak, and a thinly veiled and very stretched attempt to pick individual successes from a team failure, and so continue the long litany of pro Ospreys articles from his pen.

He’s touting Griffiths as a future Welsh captain made me chuckle as it’s based on quotes from a coach who ( no disrespect meant) has not played or coached professional rugby, and not attained anything ( unless you count relegation as an attribute) at semi pro level.
That’s not even bending things to fit a pre determined outcome ( which I can cope with) that’s just rank poor journalism.

Don’t get me wrong on Morgan, he’s excellent and as certain to be capped by Wales as there is right now, and had a great game, but you can’t just embellish the positives and ignore the negatives. He missed a crucial tackle that enabled our last try for example, was unable to bring Cawdor down when he went for a dart on the blind side in the 1st half ( luckily there was cover, but it was his man)
He also won’t be first choice for the O’s when Tips is fit. Wales are not short of quality 7’s, and if all remain fit, then Morgan is not in the running right now.

The overall standard of Welsh rugby journalism isn’t bad at all, Simon and Steff keep that bar up there, not sure what the value addition of a writer that really only has one narrative adds though,

The article reads as if it was written before the match had taken place and was banking on an Ospreys win. He then had to make a few adjustments and additions before publication.

I would have to take his word about the lack of quality in the game as low quality is something that he knows all about. Wink

In what sense is Booth similar to Delaney?

Come on SN,really?When enough people stop being as disingenuous as you just were,then Booth will be gone.Happy to wait and talk about it then.
You’re the biggest troll in the history of ScarletFever fair play. 
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1
