    I agree. We are now treading the fine line of blooding/acquiring some youngsters especially in the backline and managing regressing veterans.

    i know it gets said a lot but it is true, we need a much better attacking coach, some real tactics would help our squad and train the 1%era into them, it is the effort areas we struggle.

    Someone mentioned last night we need to shadow Matto cause he is always poking his nose through and no one is there, DRown has the same problem, he takes the line on and always pokes his nose through and there’s f**k all around him, Gutho can’t be everywhere!

    we need an elite level back to compliment the backline, real speed, anticipation and ball skills and we will be a contender IMO.

    How’s about we give the 7th Immortal a season with no bubble before we start saying we need a better attacking coach ?

    He is the halves coach, he is not the coach who works out our attack, i am pretty sure there is a big difference between his job and the actual assistant coach to BA.

    Funny you say that. Do you not see a similarity in the way that Jnr plays ? Spooky... :ghost:

    It would be as difficult as trying to educate our f*cking fans.

    Arthur's last coaching 'job' before his untimely death was in charge of the All Stars team which played Hay Magpies at Hay Park Oval in 2011.

    For all the intelligence these media buffoons credit themselves with, will one of them please ask BA from one of the million interviews hes done and will do these past weeks, about his teams edge defence. Every fu*ker knows its a huge problem for us but nobody seems to want to enguage BA on it. If you media morons do read these forums how about asking the fn question. Id love to hear his response.

    There was no football in Group 20 this season. The Magpies had a good team assembled too, with former Kumul Timothy Lomai and former Storm/Cronulla Shark player Jamie Woods as co-coaches. Football in the bush is the life blood of the community, and little towns like Hay rely on sport to keep the economy rolling. The people in the BUSH love their footy teams...

    BA will say 'well, sure, but the edge is where most team concede points and breaks and we have the 3rd best defense in the competition'. But I don't watch press conferences and rarely read what coaches say, so maybe I'm wrong.

    Do you mean they should ask him why, when we concede one of the few tries scored against us, that it is scored out wide? Perhaps a better question is to ask why our middle concedes so few.

    I guess I'd just like to hear BAs opinion of our edge defence. Maybe hes happy with it.

    If he was that concerned he wouldn't have them compress so much.

    This'll get hijacked but for mine he's at parity now. I like him and I think with him we're a 3rd-6th level team BUT he needs to show he can do it in the finals. Yeah he didn't miss the penalty goal, but he talks about playing for 80 yet without Paulo/Nrown we look lost. Yeah there was some adversity, but f**k, that's rugba leeg.
    He needs a good off-season himself to improve some of his own deficient areas.
    As it stands now, we need to be a top 4 team next season and I'm not sure a prelim would even cut the mustard. Would be a very subjective call
