Wouldn't be surprised if we didn't take another lad from the Vikings this week as we will need a strong bench just to get a bonus point.
The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!

I'm with voodoo . Id be taking all the help we get this week to really help ourselves . Strong benches often decide games and a forward abd impact half would be useful .Bonus point here would be super good but at home with a good crowd and our team I wouldn't write us off .

i hope we stick with the winning 17 from sunday unless matty is anywhere close to being fit. fax will not relish coming to cumbria and will under estimate us. town 26 fax 16.
the futures bright,the futures blue and white

A ten point win eh Wonky!! I hope your right mate it will certainly be a coupon buster if your right as I think we will have quite a few start.

Charlo said that Matty was 4-6 weeks away same as Rooney and Miller would be back before them.

Last weeks team that faced Swinton wont get a result against Halifax! We need either Forber or Coyle and a Widnes dual reg forward who can cover the back row on the bench as its unrealistic to expect Brett, Stack and Olstrum to do 80 minutes every game
Forget Chuck and Chad I am the real legend killer

I agree totally , great show but whole new ball game . Some real impact in grunt and spark to boost us . This is gonna be an all out massive struggle this week like we haven't seem down here for ages . Fantastic !!!

Watching Halifax on tv, I think with our fit forwards we will beat them around the ruck as I think they look like old school forwards big and lazy. Just my opinion

Make no mistake this will be our hardest game for years, anything from this game will be a bonus, we have to believe that a solid performance can bring a result.Lets get behind the team in numbers.

Agree with Bobg, a bonus point is a good result from a game like this. It will give us a very good idea as to our current level, though I do think it wont be easy for Fax up here. Looking forward to it though, hopefully we give as good an account of ourselves as we did sunday.

Got told on sunday at Swinton that matty could be back on for the fax game, but if only 90% fit he wont be risked.

Dunno who makes up these laughable rumours, Charlo himself said on the radio gonna be another 6 weeks

Our season won't be determined by this game , this will be a real culture shock for us . But it's one to be enjoyed after we won last week . No pressure on us here , if we have 4 points after Sunday that will be incredible and will mean we've put in a hell of show . The Batley game was a hell of shock in terms of standard from what we were used to ,the sheer physical power and pace and always coming at you , and this will be of the same 80 min intensity and no let up . But these games are to be savoured and enjoyed , we've waited long enough - savour it , flock in and see a team we've put together that's very fit and full of quality and we can be proud of ! I can honestly see us with these lads making 8 th .
