    In my experience coaches from outside are not always a good thing especially when you have a unique style which we do. Happy to take someone new in but I’m not losing sleep over it.
    The problem is that over the last 3 years I don't believe we have got the best out of the playing group so we are backing the same coaches that haven't been as successful as we would have all hoped for

    The stability we have displayed has typically been a trademark of teams performing at a higher level.

    If we can improve a bit on our 2019 season then it's obviously worked out well for us, if we slip back then there will be a need to review this approach.

    I remain positive about the changes we have made but in 12 months we will have a better idea if it's actually worked
    We need to see steady improvement across many of the players in 2020

    It's what Clarkson espouses too. Obviously Bevo has different view to his former Mentor.

    On ability and experience 7th is a good result. I want more but I don’t think we can mount a case for under achieving.

    I’m not against new blood I just don’t think there is much evidence to support the amount of angst it causes our supporters. Opposition coaches throughout the finals made mention of our unique style of play so I don’t think we are bereft of ideas.

    On ability we should have finished around 9th to 7th so that really isn't the issue. We also had a very good draw
    Where I don't think we are performing that well is the development of some of the players. Lynch for example had some promising performances in 2018 but couldn't crack it for a game in 2019. Lewis Young laboured throughout the year in a variety of roles before getting a couple of games later in the season.

    Re: Coaches locked in for 2020

    Player development is probably one of, if not the most important factor in a clubs on field success. I find it odd that the player development coaches are often fresh out of the game and only learning the coaching caper themselves. Wouldn’t a more experienced coach be better at this role?

    They come after all,
    They can't handle all,
