Not too disappointed with this result - we were never going to win and 30-4 down at half time, the cas from a few weeks ago woud have conceded 70+

To win the second half (I think) is a big positive for us.
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

way of the mark

10,500 i think they said with a good following from the Tigers, 800/900, well done to Cas.

Some of the figure got picked up on the radio, so probably 10577, I heard "77".
Dunno how Sporting life are so far out, unless the figure was given over a bad phone line.
Usually done via laptop now, though.
Westwood sponsors MOM?
Did I hear that right?

Some very good tries by both sides, excellent goalkicking from Warrington goalkicker (its a long time since I could say that) a worrying 20 minute lapse in 2nd half from Wire - yes Cas played well but Wire made things worse for themselves. Couple of prop forward injuries - hopefully nothing too bad for Wood and Carvell. As has been said earlier our defence MUST mprove v pies.

Indeed you did hear right.

Ben had a great game, kicked all his goals, and put some big hits in.

for me the MOM should have been Myler, but with Ben kicking all the goals i can see why the sponsors picked him
(there was 3 from wide out)

The crowd is down as 7,500 everywhere and tbh that is really poor, is this time of year bad for holidays or something (have the schools just broken up)? Or maybe the club have fallen into the same trap as last year and assumed fans will just turn up because we have won a couple rather than putting the hard work in behind the scenes.

In terms of the game, once again our defence seems a touch soft, to concede so many tries at home isn't great, howveer it sounds like we had a couple of injuries during the game.

I believe we also rested Briers and Harrison, and tbh it is pleasing that our attack was so good without Briers, hopefully with Myler getting back to form.

I was a little worried about today's game so I'll take a 24 point win.

So some people are saying on the Wire site, although nowhere official says that.

I would be surprised if the crowd was thousands down on recent crowds.

crowd just over 10k, which seemed about right from where i was sat.

as for the game, 2 teams who thought defence was for other sides to worry about. we were a bit more physical, a bit faster and a bit more clinical. the main difference between the teams was rangi chase, if he'd have been wearing a wire shirt the gap would have been bigger than 24.

grix is not a half back.
foxes or poor people?

I rarely read this forum in the past but over the course of the past few weeks, I notice several recurring themes:

1) You have a repetitive obsession of referees and their performance. wink.gif

and 2) You seem to have a problem with Cas/Cas fans - why? More to the point, why do you always have to bring a thread down just because you don't agree with someone's comments?

dunno about the play offs but cas did well going around the outside of us when we were dropping riley back early, when they got mcgoldrick running through delayed they ended up having a two man overlap on a regular basis.


Not many teams have been able to do that this, year.

Intersting that one sam as Yorkshire radio were saying Grix had a great game yesterday.

As I posted earlier, not too disheartened by the result especially with no centres on the park! ANother 30 points next game up should see us turn Wakey over and be in pole position for the play offs
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

He had a good spell there earlier in the year when Briers was injured, although his form (like most others) has dipped in recent weeks.

How did Clarke go sam?

he came on with 15/20 minutes left. he was ok at dh and didn't look like he'd been out of action for a significant time. got shifted into the 2nd row when monaghan came back on.

it was all a bit 'meh' yesterday. there was a couple of really good tries, especially the first, but apart from that it was a very forgettable game.

Cheers, pretty much the summary that my dad and mate gave me too. I'm pleased that the attack looked quite good again (especially with Briers out) but the defence is still a worry, especially when we are playing the best attack in the league at their place next up!

Pleased to see Clarke back in, he isn't the best player in the world, but he does help the organisation when the likes of Monas and Briers have an off-day (although it doesn't sound like he organised the defence much yesterday!).

Smith didn't seem too disappointed with the overall game yesterday, I wonder whether he was a little worried about the game, based on the fact we had been off-colour and Cas were going well.

He does seem concerned about Wood's injury too.
