Following their first-round defeat to the Royals, we managed to catch up with Kings’ head coach, Outcast, to find out what went wrong…
A tough night for you and the team, Outcast?
Outcast: “Look,” – (in the style of Eddie Jones) – “we knew it was going to be tough out there. It’s never an easy game against Dwarves.”
It was a high profile game, streamed live to millions of viewers all around the world. Do you think the size of the occasion rattled your nerves a little?
Outcast: “Look, these guys are professionals, they love big games. Look, we made some mistakes, and the Royals made us pay for those mistakes. We’ve got some lessons to learn and stuff to work on before the next game. It’s a long season.”
Do you think your two seasons coaching the infamous Bar Room Brawlers should have better prepared you for a game against Dwarves? In fact, you won the league in your second season with the Brawlers, didn’t you?
Outcast: “Yes, we did.”
That’s strange because I’m looking at your trophy cabinet now and it’s empty?
Outcast: “I know, we didn’t get a cup or trophy for winning the league.”
Oh I see, so trophies aren’t awarded for winning the SaW league?
Outcast: “Yes, they have been every other season… just not when we won it…”
That’s a real shame, you would think the current commissioning body would try to rectify that immediately, wouldn’t you?
Outcast: “Yes, you would.”
Thanks for your time, Outcast.
