That lineout will be so vital to fix.
How many games did we lose or drop bonus points due to a lineout costing us promising positions or points?

It feels it was at least half the games.

It was certainly so many that when watching I was erring to "let's see us fluff this" rather than "ooh good attacking position"

A couple of things from that article.

Quote:
The club has lost 5m as a result of the pandemic

I thought it was 5m of income the club had said they'd lost? So allowing for an amount of profit/margin within those income generating activities (1m say) and the fact that they will not have spent the money creating those activities (variable cost of say 1m?) plus their fixed costs being mainly salaries which all reduced by 25% (say 750k) and no rates on WR (250k?), is the actual "loss" nearer say 2m? Still substantial but not what said in the article. (OK, my figures are not accurate but hopefully demonstrate the point.)

Quote:
Previous chief executive Simon Cohen was one of 31 redundancies across the business.

I thought it was 31 folk plus the early leavers such as Simon and Ged?

But if you say a thing often enough, Yorkie, it becomes true...

Which is what I think I highlighted back when it was actually said. So clever wording from the club then and obviously deliberate so that the lazy repetitive media put across the message required.
