looking at their team before KO i suspected their intensity levels with and without the ball would be an issue and it was. they played the game faster than anything we saw last season and they will be up at the top end of the league.very good effort from us and a good learning curve though.

Was nice to see the stadium in good nick, had lads with us that haven't been there for while and they said they'd come back next time.

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

I personally thought Lupton was man of the match and as much as I'd take a point from the performance I think with matty there we would have ripped them apart from quick play of the balls!! We need a half back partnership for keeps now to get the forwards to play off! Coyle looks like he needs to get a few more games but that will come I hope!! Onwards and upwards lads can be proud from what they achieved today!

how do you know that ???hes a young lad who hasn't had a chance yet and been very unlucky with injuries - last week you thought lulu was ###### and surprise surprise he has two belting games. He will get his chance once clarke moves into the training staff , that's why they kept him on

I think the lad did alright for his first appearance in an important position and he can throw a good long pass from the base of the scrums as well. Give the lad a chance.

He was dummying n scooting prematch and you can tell he'll be seen to full effect off quick plays. He's gonna be a good un , as is Hulme .

I remember last year on Premier Sports when Fev beat Fax how Harrison was complaining about the Fev wrestling style in the tackles. Well he has certainly learned the way to do it as they had 3 and 4 players in each tackle and took forever getting off. Something we should maybe learn how to perfect!!!!

Leuluai has a big heart but Hock and Allen are better Secondrowers still.I hope Gore does well like all players.Glad Declan is doing good,and I want to watch Workington when Widnes are not playing at the same time or day.

good effort but just not good enough at 6,7 and 9. town not creative enough when in good field position. we matched them in the forwards but their allround intensity levels with and without the ball were better. still a good effort and slightly misleading scoreline is was closer than 8-20 suggests


Agree with all that, we had a lot of pressure on their line and while their defence was phenomenal I would have expected the line to have been broken in that second half. First time I'd seen our new six and as has already been said, too early to form a solid opinion.

Well done to Carl Forber though for a good performance and landing that BP kick, I think we need to see more of the half break and off-load from him though ? Thought Brett looked dangerous and Hulme looks a good player and Patrick had a strong game. What has happened to Shacks ?

We tired a little toward the end, not surprising, and Fax didn't which was the difference. I was probably a little optimistic in thinking we might win it but we're not far off at all.

Shame, on form he does have a knack of finding the line.

I'd like to give a word to Calders to . Looked our most potent weapon out wide and was a threat with every involvement. It's still a shame he has to involve himself rather than get good quick ball to strut his stuff off , but well done Calders.

Our field is too narrow to swing it out wide though. We tried 2 or 3 times yesterday and got tackled into touch.

Well there you go , I really thought our game against the second best team may have been worthy of a bit more attention this week in the RLE but yet again not so ... The massive Keighley v Haven game gets the main bit with pic and full quotes and we again get the bottom bit with just a description of events again . Can that guy never get a word with Charlo ?
