    Apparently the Hoff not behind Parry in pecking order after all. Bugger!

    Isn't it the job of our assistant coaches to fix these deficiencies in our players before they make NRL? Why are we paying a shit load of cash to these blokes to have a promising player with huge deficiencies? These are systems that should be in place already for lower grades, no wonder our defence is so shit in our NRL team.

    If Parry is in the BAs future he should be on the wing instead of Hoffman...

    They should be but so far this season it has not improved.. it's all about attitude and most of our team has a poor attitude in defense..

    I like Faainga. But for mine he looked out of shape when playing for Fiji.

    BA's job is to win games. Squad succession is part of the equation but should not impede the squad.

    To be fair Pou has not been sighted of late whilst internet access is being arranged in his new digs.

    It should impede 100% especially if Parry is going to be here in the future.. as you said his job is to win games now and in the next 12 months.. Short sightness is a big issue that's why teams blow their cap and have no long term success........

    Parry has a place in the squad in 2020, but he is not in the likely starting 17. He has had a taste of FG and now he needs to go back and work on his D. Best not to learn that against the huge Warrior merkins.

    If every deficiency could be fixed teams wouldn't bother spending so much on recruitment. They would just improve all their existing players.

    We don't just want to win games in the future though, we want to win this weekend. Though I guess that's technically also in the future.

    Once the season starts they need to be able to recover from the last game and stay fresh for the upcoming game while also maintaining their weight. What this means is that their training intensity isn't high enough to lose weight, especially if they're not disciplined with their diet.

    This is why a solid pre-season is important. If they're not in good condition by round one they'll struggle to get there by the end of the year.

    And worrying about the future gets plenty of coaches sacked before they can reap the benefits. This is why succession planning should reside with some merkin other than the coach.
