I said he or Henry shouldn't have been within a mile of the side but in fairness I don't recall you saying anything either Bagster.BaggyTrousers wrote:I have no respect for 20:20 hindsight. I could be wrong but I don't recall anyone suggesting Franco shouldn't be there - other than me - so no point being wise after the fact. Speaking of facts, Snipe is right, Franco wanted to play every game. Great shame if he is really ballixed.
I assume we will be allowed a temporary contract, though it won't be in the next 2 weeks I would suggest.
Interesting that buck says we have been unlucky with injury but I don't think we have helped ourselves in that regard.
We don't rotate our squad and tend to flog players to death.
I think Chad played every game before his injury and the actual plan seemed that it was to do that as we forgot to sign any decent back up.
More or less have done the same since his return.
Then we rest the majority against strong away opposition like Glasgow and Toulon and throw in a few regulars who get long term injuries.
D#ckhead stuff to do it once and get punished but TWICE is unforgivable.
We went full out at home to weak oppostion we were never going to lose to.
Sure I would be prepared to sacrifice the odd tbp for resting players and giving our squad players opportunity and game time.
That way when we need the likes of Lutton they are coming in battle hardy and not in from the cold.
All these injuries are not coincidental and I fear they will continue whilst we continue to manage our squad so badly.
We then wonder why they underperform when they have no game time.
