Obviously without being there today, not really in the position to comment but very disappointing.

Seeing as the club sound skint and wanting more people through the turnstiles, I can't see this helping at all. Very disappointing. Not so much as ticking the SL box (pipe dream anyway) but this can't be good for morale of the team or supporters.

Now Powell's experimenting has totally backfired, its deems next weeks home match as totally meaningless. I hope Powell enjoys it when we play are nothing match infront of 900 fans. I'll give it a miss, losing interest in rugby league massively!!

I'll be 1 of the 900, can think of 5 others who are gonna be part of the 900 also, Wakey are away I think, so I can think of another 2/3 who will be part of the 900, dont hit the panic button just yet, we went thru this last year and had a good season in the end.

Cummins Out.

Doesn't sound too promising today, but we didn't do too badly last season after our home game against Whitehaven did we?

Trying to get as many negative threads in as is humanly possible wont help anyone, were all hacked off.
I note your from Allerton Bywater are you a secret Cas fan.
Everyone even radio Leeds keeps saying were out, is this fact because we can still finish with 8 points surely there isnt 4 teams in our group with over 8 points

After the Halifax game I said that I couldn't see that the replacements were any better than the players who had gone. I still feel that. By the way Hunslet seem to be p[laying well.

Wigan got battered last year, next home game they had a record crowd to get behind them, similar happened to Leeds a few weeks ago after getting schooled by Swindon, and its happened loads of times when a club is down on its luck and the fans come out in force to get behind them. Lets do the same.

Cummins Out.

I'm not saying don't go out to try and win, but surely he has to try different combinations otherwise how else is he supposed to find his best team?
If we're out of the competition after one loss and one draw, perhaps that says something about how the competition is organised.


Isn't the time to try out different combinations on the training field not in competitive matches? Surely he knows deep down what his starting 17. If you have to make changes, make them gradually not wholesale.

I disagree. It's one of only two pieces of silverware that we realistically can win, and I for one want to see us lift it! It would appear in all likelyhood I'll be waiting another season for that to happen though... sad.gif

I wouldn't have thought the directors are thinking that away about the lost income

Just back from game, biggest waste of money and a sunday so far. Your all abusing one guy for having no faith yet sit on a forum n argue toss, you be the lucky ones not having to watch that shower of ######. We couldnt get out of our own half 1st 20 mins did so once and scored same story 2nd half, kept dropping ball missing tackles not completing sets everything was ###### today.
Dont care about us having a big squad people should be made to fight for there places and today everyone was rubbish. From moment kain didnt find touch with a penalty he was garbage, shouldn't have left out matty dale jack lee liam wellham since if we want to do well in this why play fringe players?

Next week we will probably win but i still agree that relegaton battle is not out of question, oh and does anyone know if we are out or not?

ONE OF OUR best performances at the LSV. I guess we were fired up after losing to York, and after making a good start, never looked back. Fev were back in at 12-6, spent more time in our half than earlier on, but the crucial score in the 38th minute, made it 18-6, rather than just 6 point gap. It was just 'one of those days' for you I guess, with ball in hand. You made nearly as many handling errors than us at York last week. Don't know why you chose to 'constantly' slow the game down by 'lying on' in the tackle, we are hardly Saints.
Don't be too disheartened over this result, it will be probably one of our best displays of the season. wink.gif

Spot on there and I know where my money is next week staying in my pocket, when the club dont take this compertition seriousley why should the fans pay money to Get Behind the team I will now wait for the season to start if the club wanted the fans to come back they should have been picking a winning team from game one
