Let's face it, I don't think this fixture is at all by coincidence.


That thought crossed my mind too :)

But TBF, I would have preferred this the week after instead of Saints away :lol:

I'm curious who has London the week before, they seem end up in the Final (and lose to London)

EDIT: Huddersfield for CC Final it is, then!

We are playing a team that has scored 6 and conceded 82 so far this season.

Pah, that's nothing. We did that to them in one game 9 years ago. No talk of a crisis then!

Much better performance from the sounds of it. Just improve each week and by the end of the season we might win a game.

Watch out Warrington at Easter ;)

Not as bad as I thought it might be. We made some silly mistakes and managed to put pressure on ourselves. The main problem IMO is the slow delivery from scrum and ptb. This means the receiver is getting the ball with the tackler right in his face. We don't seem to have anyone who can play dummy half effectively.

The major plus point has to be the effort. We tackled our hearts out all game and, though we fell off a few, we must have made twice as many tackles as Leeds but kept going. We definitely played better than we did against Wigan and caused Leeds a few problems where we caused Wigan none.

I had to laugh when, after our first try, the chant of "We're not getting nilled!" broke out.

On a serious note, and please don't take this the wrong way, but if we can score three tries against Leeds, how confident must Melbourne be? Leeds defence will have to be much better next Friday. Also, we seemed to give away a lot of marginal, IMO, penalties for holding down at the ptb. At least once, our tackler clearly looked at the ref for some indication, got none, and the ref then gave a penalty against us. How does this work? Should there be a call or a signal from the ref?

Anyway, we're improving and "Good luck!" to Leeds for next week.

got to agree about salfords tackling efforts in the first half especially they showed real pride and gave the sort of effort i would have liked to have seen from leeds who gave another under par preformance . thats not to take anything away from salford who stuck in with there effort all game and just ran out of steam towards the end .
that winger of salfords seems to have some pace as well and it was good to see gibson have another reliable game he is a much under rated player .

looks like salford may be signing griffin to add a bit of meat to the pack as well which wont harm the team
ah a sunday night in front of the telly watching old rugby league games.
does life get any better .

Salford did better than Hull FC when it comes down to points difference.

And we're gonna rip it up this year, you markmiwurdz.

So it's a Salford v Hull GF.
