surely any chick that gets 57 seconds is getting the extended edition? huh.gif

Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

My thoughts on the game.

Bradford are seriously lacking in confidence that is clear. At times they looked good, and blew two absolute certain tries which on a normal day would have gone in, and could have been crucial. I thought they did a lot of good stuff and Lynch was excellent IMHO. They aren't as bad as they are currently playing and a little bit of luck and change in fortune will see them get a win or two. I know Worrincey gets stick, but any player who attempts to tacklelike he did on Fox would be getting his P45 if I was anywhere near running a club. That was appalling and he needs shipping out, as that is not acceptable, and not the first time he has done it.

Hull KR looked pretty good at times, but then they will also be disappointed with certain parts of the game. Has that Watts always been so good, I was impressed with him tonight?

Thought overall it was an okay game, some nice tries and good hits.

My thoughts almost to a tee. I never want to properly have a go at a player but if there is a more clueless player than Worrincey in Super League, I have yet to see him. Sometimes you see what he does and wonders if he even knows the rules of RL. I would start to worry if he stays next year.

In former Bradford scapegoat news, Platt had a very respectable match tonight and is surely the most improved player at the club this year (no mean feat I know...!)

Someone pointed out to me that Worrincy has perhaps bulked up too much and lost any speed or agility he had (shades of Langley a few seasons ago). I must admit I thought he was a decent signing at the time.
There again, his brother looks a bit muscly and managed to score for Halifax on Thursday!!

2nd half try by Newton, ran straight past Halley, didnt even attempt to tackle, whats happended to him, decent prospect and a decent player, lack of confidence im presuming.

Not a bad game to watch, KR did enough but were hardly tested, Bulls just look out of energy and ideas, suppose that happens on the back of a losing streak, couple of wins and they'll be ok.

Hard to imagine that comeback win against Wigan after watching tonights display

A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

Had a very "end of season" feel to it.

Worrincy's defence not withstanding how bad was Halley's.

Like watching a turnstile.

I heard his Dad has recently died...not 100% sure about that but would explain a bit if true. Possibly just terrace talk.

Halley's dad died a couple of weeks ago aged only 52, that's why he was missing last week. Presumably he put his hand up to play tonight and Sheriffe was dropped, but Dave certainly didn't look as if his mind was on the game.

Having said that I just feel he's too small for the modern game, never beats a tackle and his defence these days is woeful. Can't help feeling he could be on his way soon, especially with the promise shown by Vinnie Finnegan.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
