Give the team some time

Dear Editor,

Re: Time to sack Sir Gordon Tietjens 

Come on now people. 

The reason why we’re very disappointed its because we had too much expectation when we heard Sir G.T. is our head coach. 

He is not Jesus by the way, who can turn our rugby around just by a snap of the finger. 

We need to give him a little bit of time and a huge amount of support and faith. Maybe some players are not good enough to be in the team but hey, we don’t have a pool of players unlike N.Z., Fiji just to name a few. 

Have you seen these youngsters play 7s locally? 

If you have, then you will know that these guys play one hell of a game in the islands. So it all goes back to the mental side of things. 

Sir G.T. will eventually help out these guys with what they’re lacking…but for how long? Well, time will tell. Fingers crossed!
