Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread
I'm sorry Mr Stats, but what exactly did Weyman do under Bennett? He made rep sides sure but did he contribute much on the field? Did he make the tough yards like a prop should? No. Costigan and Soward were always decent players and yes Wayne Bennett helped them to shine but they had that substance behind them. No matter how good your coach is, unless you have that talent then no matter what he does you will fail.
What is it exactly you think Weyman does? Of course he does the hard yards. He's easily one of the best props in the game.
No one is doubting Bennett, he is the best coach of the modern era by a long way. What we are doubting is the asinine notion that the Knights will instantly gel and be moulded into a minor premiership winning side. That will take time.
Knights winning the minor premiership might be a surprise, not a shock. I see no reason not to think the Knights will win the comp during Bennett's time.
