An excellent performance by every single one of the Eagles forwards.

Halifax are a strong physical team but were matched today.

Fantastic performance - all they scored was from an interception - they never looked like scoring except for one held up - they do however try to cheat their way up field fortunately the ref didn't fall for most of it - but they still were off isde at nearly every tackle - continually laid on, ripped when they could and hardly ever played the ball properly - we were perfect! - but what's up with the righthand side??? rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

It was Tubby's Tactics to keep the ball away from Worrincy and it worked.....The fact that Fax had not conceded a point this season until tonight also makes good reading......I thought our Second Rowers worked exceptionally hard also......Eagles soaring above the rest in Pool B!!!!!

your lads did very well, i left with about 15 mins left to go at 12-6, Fax never really looked like breaking your defence down.

I thought it was also a sporting gesture that the home fans clapped the Interchange Official off the field after he was booed whilst going on.

Good solid workmanlike performance, nothing more, nothing less. Just hope we can carry it on in to the league season. Looks like we will need a bonus point at the most on Monday to qualify, maybe we could play some of our younger lads? Although I'd like to see Menzie and Richie Barnett get a game under their belts before the real stuff starts, both were in attendance last night, btw.

Excellent performance by the Eagles and congratulations.

As to your other points, it just shows how myopic RL supporters can be because I came away with exactly the same opinions.......only the other way around. It was the Eagles who laid on, were offside etc. etc.

Let's face it, we all see what we want to see and ignore what we don't. wink.gif

Exactly, I thought Hewer could've been stricter for both teams on the 'minor' offences if you like. I can't wait for the game at the Shay, we should both have our full squad by then and I think it'll be a cracker.

One of the old school refs (can't remember which one) once said that if both sets of supporters booed him off he can't be far wrong!!

It would have been easy for Gareth to have blown a lot more but do we necessarily want to see that? What I saw was a tough game of rugby league in difficult conditions where both defences were excellent and tries were hard to come by.

From my strictly neutral (cough) point of view i thought it was a very good game given the conditions. There was very little grip on the pitch. It wasnt a dirty game, yes the ref can blow for minor things but if you do that every time the game would be so slow it would be like a union match. Im not sure what all the offside shouting was about, i didnt see that many. Markers not square was the one that was happening most frequent.

Excellent performance by the Eagles and with Barnett, Menzie and hopefully Aaron still to come incompetiton for places is going to be excellent which can only be good. I would like to see a few changes to the team for the Oldham match to keep people fresh.

Give Kyle a run at hooker

Nice to hear an unbiased account of last night's match from a Fax fan. When I was leaving, most of 'em were saying the reason we won was a) Fax played "######" cool.gif the Eagles were cheating by lying on etc, or c) the ref was bent. I think we wanted it more. The Fax team were held up on the way, but I'm sure they wouldn't use that as an excuse.

Without being speculative i.e what he'd said on Facebook what's the official diagnosis of his injury?

I hadn't seen that until you just pointed it out, don't see why he'd make it up. Terrible news.
