It’s obvious enough that it’s filtering down into the Dub panel. Cluxton giving it a special mention in his speech etc.
Can only see the recent articles from the usual sorts (Ewan McKenna) as acting as a major motivating factor for this panel
Giving the effort and sacrifice they’ve put into getting to a place where a 5 in a row is actually possible. It must be like a slap in the face to the players to listen to the rubbish being spouted.
For me it’s only fueling the fire of this history making Dubs panel moving forward into 2019
