Don't look back in anger

If people want to talk about choking, let them. The top four or five teams in this league are all capable of beating each other on any given day. That's what makes the Championship such a great, competitive league. We've lost a couple of big finals this year. We won one last year. That isn't a pattern.
There are some great times ahead for Fev, and it's been a great season.
That is all.

but we have won a grand final
It's simple really. The best team on the day won. Their kicking game was better, they matched us in the forwards and showed more variety in attack. We were nfortunate that Smeaton wasn't playing and our three quarters looked disjointed. But take heart we are still up there.

Well done Sheffield you certainly deserve your trophy; Best side today and probably best side in all three games played against us this season; You stifled our playmakers brilliantly with your defence and your backing up in attack was exemplary; Thanks to my own team Fev for another brilliant season these two final defeats will make us stronger; The championship has been the winner again today; Disappointed? Like hell I am but one team has to lose and the best side won;

I'm pleased for Sheffield though - it's always good to see another name on a trophy, and they've had a terrific run in to winning it - to beat 5th, 3rd, 2nd and now 1st shows they were the form team when it mattered.
All that said though, I still believe the term 'Champions' should really apply to the team who proves it over the season, by topping the league.
Anyway guys, look on the bright side - for the Anglo-French competition, you are now considered to have finished SECOND, and will be rewarded by a trip to the South of France! (unless the rules change)
Here's hoping we play you the following Thursday - like we did with Sheffield this season!!

It will be tough at the moment but you know you will be back.
Thanks for a great year.

You optimist,Tim. Obviously not sat amongst the fans where we were sitting. Dont forget, just because we love and support our club, it still should not prevent us from stating constructive criticism.We are still a little way from the finished product.
Ok, we lost, not the end ot the universe. We are the best team in the championship, just not so good at finals. and as proved today the best supported team. So here to next season when I can don my Rovers shirt once more with pride !

I'm not in agreement of the best team in the league losing nonsense, the league shield means nothing, it's all about the finals, if people judged teams on there domestic finish Leeds would be average at best and we all know that isn't true.
I disagree if you win the league you are champions IMO whether its us or anyone else.In every other sport if you win the league you are champions why should our sport be any different just because of the fools at the RFL.
