    Default Psychologist

    Does anyone on here know if Saints employ a sports psychologist ?????, the Raiders in the NRL appointed one this year and it's made a big difference, it is just as important for players to be mentally as well as physically prepared, they definitely went missing at Wembley.

    I also totally agree with McManus's comments regards the referee in last nights program.

    I’d like to see the facts that show that has made the big difference and not the last 5 years of building a really good squad capable of competing against the ‘so called’ NRL big guns.
    In addition they’re yet to play finals rugby so haven’t been competed against at that next level (yet).

    It made a difference to Clive Woodwards world cup winning England team according to several ex players.

    I've always been sceptical about sports psychology, but if ever there was a team that looked like it needed that sort of help, we are it.

    I think we had one in the McCrae era. About 8 years ago Matt Daniels went into a project with a Professor of Sports Science, think it was at Chester University there was some Psychology in that but it was mostly performance + strength + conditioning + nutrition based.

    We used one pre season I'm not sure about current.

    One of the things they changed this season was blaming eachother when we make mistakes.
