Well we are in the entertainment business, and there has not been much entertainment this year. If a die hard scarlet isn't enjoying then we don't have much hope of gaining a new audience.

Flannigan inherited a back line full of international players and very good regional players from Stephen Jones, but unfortunately the same players look completely different and unrecognisable from those of a few seasons ago.
Yes players get older and lose a yard or two of pace, but they don’t go backwards at the same speed as they currently do.
Delaney has brought in the best signing of the last 3 seasons in Kalamafoni and is probably trying to find his feet as a head coach so I’d be happy to give him this season, but Flanagan was promoted from a within (which is admirable, being young and welsh etc) but has been on watch for the past 2 to 3 seasons and this has coincided with our very average to poor back play.

So what does Whiffin do?

It seems a silly point to make but although a lot of games are poor rugby - Delaney’s positivity is infectious. In what is a tough time off the pitch it’s worth having people like that around

That’s a very good question, our skills are very poor.  It’s hard to know who’s more responsible for our poor backs play.  Our skills levels are really poor but our game management (in the back line) is poor, and that must be a game plan issue, which would lie with the backs coach.

 Six wins from 7 games counting Toulon, only loss the controversial defeat to Ulster by 2 points, missing 27 players . Our back play as been not been great,depending on backs fitness for Blues I would change probably 6 players there .

   Blues game needs to be used as a dress rehearsal for Toulon, with only 14 tries scored in 10 games in Pro 14,disappointing .

Good points made. I think we are doing ok. Rugby is a bonus let alone new coaches.

Rugby is a bonus? Is that a serious point?

What is delusional? Please offer me an insight instead of an insult.

This is a fans forum yes? I'm offering an opinion. It would be very quiet without one.

I don't think this is a silly point at all.To my mind,there are at least 4 players in the squad who have the right to feel aggrieved by selection,yet there is no evidence on the field,of any dissatisfaction.I'm inclined to believe that Delaney,whatever his failings,is managing morale well.Even though I think that much of what he says is purelyfor effect,I nevertheless find him an infectious character,one to whom I have warmed.He'd definitely be the mood-lifting character in a disaster movie,but not,I think,the leading man.People like that are valuable to an organisation.However,Whiffin,Flannegan,whoever is in charge of our back play,is not up to the job,and should be replaced

Well said G. Make one’s point without the personal / demeaning comments of players and coaches would be great new year resolution! 👍 It can’t be helpful to Crys16 as well to meet the club sometimes when some stuff gets too personal
