I'm not a believer in any of this stuff having any impact on the field. Absolutely zero to do with anything that happens on the ground.

The notion that during 2019 Rance was aware Hardwick was having an affair and lost a bit of connection with him and ultimately decided he didn't want to play under him though, I can at least see some logic in. I still don't buy it, but I wouldn't fall off my chair if it came up in a book in ten years time.
It's more likely to to do with his own marriage failing, coupled with the faith/football discord.

If Rance left because of Hardwick's infidelity then it's been known about for at least a year and how much influence has it had on the team's performance?
Totally clutching at straws.
That’s absolute bull dust , his own marriage collapsed I think he had his own Cross to bare

Does your same logic tell you he was so distraught by what he saw that it damaged his own relationship and broke his marriage , cmon that sounds like bs to anyone

I had a little text exchange this morning with a RFC player I know who wanted to be connected with a cricketer I know for some pre-season thing he is working on.

Took the chance to ask how everything was going.

I knew what the reply was going to say before it appeared, same as always. "It's all just noise mate'.

How is Dusty??
