I cannot, for the life of me, figure this team out. An absolutely insipid uninspiring pile of dross against Lions, yet two outstanding results to bookend it.
It just seems the Rocks have an ingrained attitude of defeatism against teams. I’m not too sure if it’s Donkey Darryl that can’t motivate an effort out of them or the players only put in a shift against a team they think they can beat. Maybe that’s what we get for not having a head coach.
Rocks definitely had a great game plan. No coincident that rocks have thrashed riders and raiders on sunday we just didnt show up. Gonk postes elsewhere in all comps we are 11-10. Crazy. Just need to get the league win over nix.
That's a very poor result for Raiders regardless how well Rocks played??
Not even close at home?
It was almost as if PJ told the players at the start of the game "guys, we are throwing away our normal tactics for this game and i just want you guys to come up with something halfway through a possession"
Ok riders arnt anywhere near the team they were when they had Drew, King and Bernadini but rocks have now convincingly beaten them and what was an on form Raiders. Hammered in the final but lions seem to be streets ahead of the competition this year. Woods has taken some tough decesions and reached a final and turned awful form around with a powerful and potentially difficult personalities. Personally think he’s deserving the faith and support that Smilie has shown
Gutted. Thought we had really turned a corner so this result was a little out of the blue for me. Hitman struggled and he is a real glue guy for us. I think we have a very good roster this year with proven BBL talent so I am not too worried.
Still a good player. One win in his last four games isn't ideal though.

chickenbroncitis: a good result to beat the sharks. Hopefully Lions getting rid of that coach will give us a good play off push and put us in the mix with the Eagles and Riders where we should be

ballerman: And there's our problem. You really only care about your own club. The Leicester cheer leader only cares about the competition his team plays in.

Solly: "I thought it was a great day out, and it appeared like those around me (basketball fans new and old) did too. And for the haters, it’s back to proper basketball now… and everything that comes with it… smaller crowds, no television coverage etc. etc."
