Bit of a knee jerk reaction from some people but then that's nowt new for Dewsbury fans.
Think having four half-backs on the pitch at different times made it hard to build any momentum in the second half but GM was right to spell his play-makers and take a look at them all.
Schoey's worked hard during pre-season I've hear, but he seems to lack confidence and is a bit hesitant with the ball in hand. He did put a nice move on down the left in the second half though that nearly brought a try.
Think in Craven, Coleman, Spaven and Brown we've got the makings of a decent attacking spine and would like to see GM stick with one set of playmakers for the Fax game in January and see how they get on.
We'll miss Patch's kicking, but I'm already happier with Brown and Coleman for attacking options. Coleman looks like he'll pivot a lot of the moves next season, but he needs the ball a bit quicker from acting half if it's going to be effective.
Distribution was a bit slow but think we've got a good 'un in Wrighty, and Tebb's come on leaps and bounds even if he caught the old white line fever in the second half and bombed a last tackle!
Like the way Lillycrop takes the ball in - reminds me of a wider Adam Robinson! And Morton has a bit of Bryn about him, needs to put on few pounds though.
Didn't think we'd get as many minutes out of Aizue, he made good yards and draws defenders to him even before the ball is played. Could be a right signing!
Think you're being a bit harsh on Akaidere. He did a lot of good stuff, and carried the ball well. Do think he needs protecting under the high ball due to his height though.
Think the comment about out pack being lightweight is a bit silly as its probably the biggest pack weve had since England and Hist were at the Rams. We've still got Esposito and Jonesy to come back, and they're both easily 100kg+
And Eddie ----- they played like that because it IS their first game together!!!!
