Some of our plays look really unfit. I can accept getting beat, but surely in professional sport we can expect players to be at their ideal weights etc. Not to mention how poor conditioning leads to more injuries.
Now who's to blame here? Yes the players are ultimately responsible for their own conditioning, diets etc. But should we be doing more on a management level, ie) simply dropping players who are not fit enough?
Can't imagine Wane, or Brian Mac putting up with it.....

The over reaction from Sunday is getting a bit daft now.

If the side were as unfit as you suggest would they have been able to come back last week and take the game in extra time?

With the new rules score lines like Sunday's will be common, that’s if the season actually carries on with what’s happening at hull

I'm not sure what the OP means by "management" but the implication that Hetherington or Sinfield are soft or easy touches will make a lot of people in the game splutter.
"Brian McDermott, with a wry smile, nods when asked if he remembers a specific incident which made him realise he was a prick. 'I do', he murmurs."

The weakness appears more mental than physical to me.Maybe subconsciously we didn't appreciate how hard it would be immediately after lockdown. All that said, we're only two games in.

I'm pretty sure the team has only been allowed to train as a group for a few weeks as they were furloughed.

It's not a surprise some are not in top shape, but that's down to the player

Thought Agar in his post match presser came over too flat. I’d have liked to see him a bit more angry/tough on his view of the performance.

Come on mate its not just the new rules we were looked way off & were blowing big time after 15 minutes.
The Giants comeback as good as it was we still looked off the pace for over an hour.
Our basic skills are poor & imo we look like we're in week 1 of pre season.
Id also say despite Furlough nothing stopped the Squad from doing their own individual fitness.

Worth remembering as well that the management were praising the condition that the players returned to training in

Yes we were off the pace for the last two games bar 20minutes, that can happen to a team at any point in the season never mind after a 5 month layoff, look at the score lines at the weekend, teams getting big scores put on them will be the norm for a while, lets see where we are at after a few more games rather than writing the whole team and management off after a couple of bad games in weird circumstances.

Have to wonder how other fanbases react after losses. Was there chinwags of 'Woolf isnt the right man' at Saints after a couple of losses pre-Covid?

Were not anywhere near where we need to be, we all know it, but the meltdown on here is little bit OTT after Sunday. Saints are by far the best team in SL in
Y opinion.
