We were really good today against a full strength c@s team. To say we were without a few first teamers through injury we looked the far best team in the first half. They were very lucky to win today the game only changed when we made changes bringing on the young guys but credit to the young uns they stood up and were counted. I am very happy after today's performance going off today we will be up there again in our league this season. Our pack looks awesome and will compete with any pack by the looks of it. Looking at our pack in the last 2 games I've got a feeling they will run over a lot of packs in our league this season which should enable Finn, kainy and Ellis to do what they do best. The futures bright its blue and white.

Cas are obviously not going to do much this season. They won't win the Challenge Cup. They won't win the League. They won't make the play offs. They can't get relegated. They can't even appear at Blackpool playing Leigh in the NRC Final.

I could have posted the same about Widnes Salford Broncos and others.

Please will someone tell my why Licenscing was introduced as it is the daftest innovation introduced to the pro gameI since refs were instructed never to blow up for a Leeds forward pass.

You said it all there TG. Daryl must have had quite a dilemna in the 2nd half;- Whether to go for the win and stick with the strongest 17 or introduce the youngsters, which cost Fev the game. It was the best option in the end because preparation for the league season is paramount. On top of that, beating Cas might have gone to their heads again like it did when Fax thrashed us after last years cup run.

I was impressed with the team today.
Strong defence and we looked strong up front with a good pack, still with players to return.
Bearing in mind they are still quite new in certain positions and once everyone is back in both forwards and backs, we will take some stopping.
Good game to watch and we will get better.

I couldn’t be happier. We’ve played a Super League side and shown that we can match them physically, tactically and defensively.


I have to pay tribute to groundsman John Lupton and his staff for enabling a match we really needed to go ahead


So our players did well, and the best contribution from a Cas perspective? The groundstaff. Says a lot really. :lol:
