    Well this is Awkward...

    From Sindo:http://www.independent.ie/sport/rugb...-30549225.html

    On Wednesday, the report, detailing comments on each player, was emailed to all squad members. Some of the comments were highly critical, and, in a couple of instances, personalised, the Sunday Independent understands.


    The document also revealed through colour-coding whether the management considered each player to be first choice or second choice and, in the case of one player, questioned why he was even in the squad at all. It is understood the issue of contracts was also mentioned.

      A bynote to the story is the departure of Adam Trypas as head of fitness.

      His departed Catalan Dragons in January 2014. The reporting of his departure on the BBC just noted "with immediate effect".

      I see he is being succeeded by Aled Walters who is already on the books.

          Not sure why that sort of assessment would ever be out down in writing. Guaranteed to leak as soon as you finish writing it.

              Anyone thinking the local boys taking over the team management would all be best mates with the players can see the real toughness now.

                It wouldn't be the first time that something was "accidentally" released to give a few people a kick in the hole.

                  Are you for real ! This is very serious and players are taking legal advice on it at the moment.
                  The lack of confidence between players in this group will be very difficult to fix.
                  The talk from the players is that someone must take a fall for it.
                  Mind blowing amateur management involved here and could have serious knock on's for the players involved getting future employment.

                      Players are taking legal advice on leaked performance reviews. Seriously?

                      Someone attaches a review accidentally to an email that does not translate into "mind blowing amateur management" Take it easy with that broad brush you are using....

                          I take it it was A Trypas who sent out the review? or is there more to come out..

                            Might not be any harm to let the players know where they stand in writing. It might inspire them.
                            On the other hand it could blow up in Foley's face. I don't think that will happen though. The players are professionals and will get on with it.

                              It seemed to work out ok for them performance wise against LI but you"d worry if it were to cause a split or clique within the team long term
