What a gutting end. Not surprising, sadly. 

 

Coach needs to go. The way the captain was talking after the game was just bizarre. They just have the wrong attitude and the attitude seems rotten top to bottom. It feels like the Warriors again. 

 

"Loss not a negative for us". Sorry, you're fired.

 

I am not a league fan particularly, and I didn't expect us to win the RLWC, but I expected us to get to the semi's at the least not get bundled out by a 2nd or 3rd tier team two weeks running.

I didnt even bother to watch it. But your right, it is like the Warriors. AB's are not playing particularly well at the moment, but they find a way, and a lot of that is mental toughness, they dont cave in. Warriors and NZRL have the complete opposite , they are mentally weak. AB's play to win, if its not going well they continue to be mentally strong and play to back themselves. These guys seem to play not to lose.

I think Kidwell has always been out of his depth. The guy doesn’t have the experience or credentials to be head coach. However, as a fan, the players need to show some professionalism and pride. They didn’t seem to care.

Kidwell is out of his depth and will go. I don't agree that all the players didn't care. Johnson and Mannerings post match interviews showed that pretty clearly.

Adam Blair comments didn’t show that they accepted there are issues.

At least they are free of being humiliated by Australia next weekend.

Blair's comments were his comments. Tarring all the players with the same brush around not caring is really unfair.

 

As a team they were woefully unprepared and played dumb and weak. This isn't a representation of them caring but when the leadership is poor it flows downhill.

Blair is the captain. He sets the tone and his words weren’t ones of self reflection. You’re probably right, they do care but with a few exceptions did not appear to have the intensity or effort on the field. Why? Why did our forward pack get outmuscled? Why is the effort not there? Yes, Kidwell is accountable but the leadership on the field needs to also put their hand up.

Common sense is not as common as you think.
