On the subject of strength and conditioning, I get the feeling we had a top notch trainer last season and this year we poached the guy from Bradford Bulls. 4 or 5 players with torn calves with a trainer who names a specialism of leaping tall buildings (sorry I meant boxes) as a qualification. Plyometrics is supposed to give more explosive power. Personally I would rather see our best players on the pitch.

wants to get em on the Harriers sprint track with genuine pace we would have won the game

Bulls off to a solid start this season. Where did our former staff go to?

It was a better showing and closer result than I thought. Green shoots indeed

Only one more matey.

It looks like we've not really had a good pre season at all. Lots of muscle injuries, and sometimes looking like we don't have the fitness to sustain a performance for 80 minutes.

More worrying is our defensive line looks far more easily breached. The three tries in the second half (excluding the last second gift) came from players either rushing out of the line (Charnley and Hardaker), or concentrating too much on someone else's man (Lam). I'm not sure you can blame injuries for that, and we won't win many games unless it is fixed.

Also, if we're going to continue to concentrate on attacking down the left, then the wingers should swap sides.

The unprecedented epidemic of torn calf injuries is unlikely to be down to bad luck.

I hope Derek’s calculations making us a Grade A next season are accurate.

The increasing number of soft tissue injuries at the Leigh Sports Village has left Lam and the rest of the coaching staff scratching their heads, with questions continuing to be asked about training methods.

Lam also pointed to the lack of a strength and conditioning coach at the beginning of pre-season after the role was left vacant by an impromptu departure.

We’ve had those conversations over and over again (about soft tissue issues), it’s a difficult one, some are bad luck like Edwin’s. But we had a change of strength and conditioning coach at the start of pre-season.
“That was a big disruption when no one was appointed for six weeks. That doesn’t guarantee that it’s that.

“We are forever asking questions about ourselves. It’s not ideal but we can’t change that. At least it is at this part of the season and not the end.”
