Newport Gwent Dragons 2016/17 thread

Post by Luckless Pedestrian on Thu 12 Jan 2017, 2:18 pm

First topic message reminder :

I understand that some players haven't had a break for a while, but still, either it's a must-win game (with a bonus point) or it isn't.

Didn't really know much about his record at Grenoble so read up on him. Certainly seems like he won't take any messing about and seems pretty similar to the bloke who recommended him in his training approach (Gatland) in terms of physicality.

It was funny reading that he apparently lost the dressing room there after banning desserts mind laughing

I believe that when he joined Grenoble in 2011 or 2012 he made a positive impact and they won D2. I haven't followed them much in the Top 14, although they were never the richest so they were always going to find it tough-and they're being relegated this year I think. This appointment is a step up on Kingsley, that much we know. Maybe the WRU are actually serious about making us better. How about some more Super 15 signings then....

Newcastle have made some good signings and have improved a lot since we last faced them. I think we'll struggle against them.

Good news IMO. I remember Jackman getting some rave coaching reviews and being tipped for the top and 'one for the future' a few years back.
