I know this comes from out of nowhere, but what is it that Benson Stanley actually does?
im not blaming the loss on him, but he just doesnt do anything special.

One could argue that the coach is not on the field, so therefore not entirely responsible for a loss such as this.
However, When a team is struggling with cohesion and confidence, as are the Blues, why would you sub your Captain when they are fighting their way back into the mix, and do it again by pulling acting Captain Tony Woodcock, who was dominating at scrum time, and leading his troops well.

Gavin Henson is more likely to be coach of the Blues next year than Lam!

I bet you do Pat those errors were unacceptable your team was a disgrace and showed themselves to have no idea What a disorganised bunch they were with no plan no skills stupid play and silly penalties. A schoolboy side would be ripped up for putting in a performance like that. Sorry Pat but if all you think your team had was handling errors then stand back and look again. The only person who seems to think you have any hope is our friend Trinuts but he's wrong on so many other statements so he's not one to listen to. Your team is badly coached and it is time for you to move on. Today your team let the whole of NZ rugby down and have rightly become the laughing stock of Super Rugby. If you keep playing like you did in this game perhaps we can help out our Saffa cousies and solve their problem by kicking out the Blues from the NZ conference and hope the Cheetah end up last in South Africa and invite them to join the NZ conference to replace this rabble of a franchise. Is there any discipline in this team?
