There a little too-much focus on DC at times. The conditions haven't been great for the last 3 games and the pack have been struggling. So it's asking a lot for DC to do his thing.

That’s almost funny. So due to bad weather we are struggling, yet other teams don’t. I think some of our boys need a kick up the arse.

No that's not what I said.

Conditions aren't the reason Gloucester have struggled - they are a FACTOR affecting the style of rugby that DC is best at (I've always considered his kicking to be poor btw).

And - the forwards have failed to get on top of the opposition, consequently the backs haven't got much DECENT ball to play with.

Just 2 elements that affect DC's performance.

No-one has really made observations about the performances of the centres - which have been equally average. Hence my suggestion that all the attention is on DC.

Seems like a lack of plan B from where I'm watching.

Only joking. :oops:
Seriously if the pack, 9 and 10 aren’t performing then the centres might as well go home. I’ve played centre when we’ve had no possession and all you do is tackle.... great fun, not.

I agree to an extent too Steckers. Conditions not been ideal for D.C. this season but I’m afraid a top class 10 has to adapt. Pack going backwards also makes it difficult for him and in this situation I think a big ball carrying 12 is important so he can dish the ball off. Having watched Sale glad Gloucester didn’t get RJVR

I believe that Billy TT is our best 12 - having him there takes some of the pressure off DC. With Harris at 13 it is a physical midfield.

I wouldn’t disagree sky blue. I think Gloucester back line has become very predictable and lateral last few weeks. Pointless going 50yards sideways but 2 yards toward. For me best sides Still have a big “crash ball” 12
