Daryl Gibson adamant Tahs players support him

19 Have your say

    NSW Waratahs coach Daryl Gibson says he is “100 per cent” confident there’s no player-driven plot to oust him from the struggling Super Rugby franchise.

    Asked about a Fairfax report on Monday which claimed he had lost the support of a number of unnamed players, Gibson wouldn’t comment on “unsubstantiated rumours or whispers.”

    He said he hadn’t felt the need to ask the players if they had any problems with him.”

      The problem with Aussie rugby summed up in one sentence.

      I’m sure he also has “the full support of the Board”…

      Tahs form has crashed off the cliff since he took over. Sure the roster took a hit but from competition benchmark in 2014 to competition punchline is appalling. The attack has looked slick sometimes, but there is so much else to their game that just sucks.

      It’s his roster and his systems that are failing. I wouldnt mind if the Tahs lost against the Force at this rate. But how low do we have to go before things turn around?

      Gibson would be a fool to expect loyalty from players who have form for shafting a coach. And yes, I expect Cheika will be drafted back in to the Tahs and that he’ll do both the Wallabies and the Tahs jobs, along with his mate Grey. Not that there’s much difference between the two teams anyhow….in personnel , performance and style.

      It may well be that Gibson has the support of the players, or even most of the players. But thats not the point. The performance of the Waratahs is appalling, and as one of the heartland rugby states, cannot be accepted.

      Just as the cosy relationship between the Reds players and Richard Graham saw the Reds move decisively to the bottom of the local conference, so are the Waratahs on the way down. The Reds thought Graham was a good bloke, and should stay as coach. The QRU bought that inane line for 2 years. By the way, he is actually a good bloke. But thats not the point.

      The point is Gibson as coach has to go. And a number of players must be cut and sacked. The lack of skills is a telling coaching failure. The lack of committment and determination is a telling player failure.

      Plenty more out there looking for a chance.
