Kennedy laments inept performance by Waratahs
March 18, 2000
Several NSW players were told after last week's substandard performance against the Cats that their places were in jeopardy and Waratahs' coach Ian Kennedy confirmed some would lose their positions after tonight's loss.
"You can't go into a loss like that after a pretty poor performance the week before and think that everything's okay," Kennedy said.
"We just need to make the appropriate changes for Auckland next week. I'm not saying we're making wholesale sackings, but we have to have a look.
"That was a pretty inept performance, we were lucky to get away with a bonus point.
"They took control of the game in the first few minutes. We tried to turn it around but couldn't."
Good news, however, is that Wallaby Tom Bowman is approaching full fitness following wrist surgery and Kennedy said he could come into consideration to replace Besseling.
Matthew Burke also suffered a back strain and would be looked at training this week.
