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

Powell shouldn't be using any competative matches as experiments, if he does i don't think he should be the coach. To be out of this cup this early is a disgrace, if the NR cup means nothing to the club they can charge us less for going to the matches. They'll be under 1000 at POR next week and rightly so.

100% spot on.like it or not the NRC is part of the season and there to be won.the ambitions have been well publicised publicly all winter and its time to deliver.ther'es likely to be less than 1000 next week as you say so they may as well drop it to a fiver as a gesture and hope for the ruddy best.not good enough.

I know today was a very bad performance and one of the worst i have seen in a long time. I think DP made a mistake in not putting the strongest team out but we knew that mid week, we will just have to see who he picks next week.

It is annoying though when people say they are not coming next week because of a bad performance. The club need us all to get to the games what would happen if the directors said sod it and the players took their teddy home we wouldnt have a club to support any more.

Leigh had a shock lose last week and their fans were not very happy but at least they turned out today to support their club and the few that may not have turned up will be annoyed now.

We need to calm down it was a bad day at the office (Like Leigh last week)but if DP admits that he make a mistake today by making too many changes and puts it right next week then we will all be happy again.

By the way well done Leigh you had a solid game today

DP doesn't care about the Northern Rail Cup then neither do i, he's displayed appalling management in the last week in my opinion. Batley will be the next match i'll be attending.

i dont think it is appalling management, last season we were settled from the off, we had more of a pre-season and a settled 13, this season we havent had much of a pre season and the team certainly isnt settled, it was a gamble and was something different, unfortuneatly most of us could see what was coming and the gamble didnt pay off, hopefully DP will send out the message next week by picking a strong 13 for Rochdale not only to us fans but to the competition

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!!

My bold = thats not fair as Malcolm Dixon once told my dad " You pay your money Derek, you're entitled to have an opinion." Real fans surely are able to criticse as well as praise?

We seem have this habit of a third player going in to a tackle when there is no need, simply to help turn the attacker over. It expends energy and takes time to get the three players off then they are struggling to get back into the line.As for it being one of those days, we had far too many of those last season where a defeat wasn't just a defeat it was a massacre.

This ropey start is not the end of the world, we've come back from worse than this before, the league is all that matters and a decent playoff run, not this worthless, pointless pre season mickey mouse cup, or do you truly beleive we have a chance to get in SL and progression in this cup will give us a free ticket in! NO IT WONT!!
Maybe Daryl sees this as a chance to get to know who he has and what they bring to the party as he didn't get chance before because of the weather. You've got to lose a few battles to win a war!

Lets get behind the lads and do our bit to lift the team! A few positives instead of all this constant tripe wouldn't go amiss!
What worries me is the gloating satisfaction some on here would have if we did end up in a relegation battle. Do you not think life is far too short to have such a negative attitude, try taking a positive view on things, take a deep breath and just think how lucky you are to be able to watch your team on a Sunday as there's plenty of people that don't get the chance.
