my thoughts on that game was that Warrington never got out of 2nd gear.
We ran at them and gave them a giddy 20 mins. They soaked up the pressure, took their (sometimes gifted) opportunities, and when we tired they exposed a gap or two giving the final scoreline an over inflated tilt in their favour.
I got the impression that if they ever needed to increase the tempo, they could have done, without any problem. Whereas our lads did their very best - and they did so valliantly, and that's all I ask, the gulf in prep, depth, fitness and quality was there for all to see in the final analysis.
Not what most want to hear I'm sure, but that's how it was for me.
Unless a championship club draws a struggling SL club on their ######, (and Warrington aren't one of those), the result is almost inevitable bar the shouting.
But at least we can shout!!!!
Didn't Warrington have a few second stringers in that game I remember Briers didn't play.
Paul and I were talking to some Warrington fans last year when we were queing, yes queing up to get in they thought that Warrington were on a poor run of form at that point and that Rovers would give them a close game, it wasn't to be in the end. Think that they have improved this year as have we.
