Could you all keep your messages shorter as poor old haven4ever (BKM) is having a hard job trying to copy them all on the St Helens Reserves site. ;)

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Is that a lack of personnel who can see that overlap and execute the quick ball or not coached to do it in your opinion mate?


Its about timing - you are hard pressed to moan about Carter because hes half decent but in the games Ive seen him in he seems to want to beat everyone instead of playing the easy ball but TBF the one time he got rid before the line we score in the corner, As for Coyle - forget it - his brother is the better player and hes championship standard at the best ( that says it all) and if im totally honest you will find players are more comfortable passing one way and if you watch the last three games it becomes apparent that passing to the left is not one of both halves , hookers preferred way.

Maybe we could radically shift it now and go Gore and Phillips with Olstrum at 9 and Lupton at 13 . May be a bit livelier ? Can't do any worse if we can't get a Widnes lad . We need 3 ball players and not just one .


I think you would struggle to play any Duel Reg in a critical half back position you need them there training all week and playing every week . But if that was the decision Id play Hulme at 6 and you would then see the ball pinging both ways ;) and some rather towering spiralling bombs to add

Aye the passing to the left has been a problem in the past, which is a fairly fundamental skill really. I have only seen Coyle play in the Fax game so I'll struggle to judge him. But cruely the first time I saw him I thought he looked like Jay Duffy - he can't be that bad though!!! :lol:
The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!

stack was holding his shoulder after the first five minutes and I think Lupton went off with a hand injury . Also not sure if hes injured or just peed off but Thacks left after getting subbed with 20mins left ??

Thacks keeps getting took off and does keep getting peed off and I for one can't blame him as he's our most likely lad ... Yes anything else shouldn't occur though .

Did you notice them playing a lad called "murphy" who came on in the second half. I maybe wrong but i think this was the same lad which played last night for the bulls v Cas. Im sure theres some rule about playing two pro games in a certain time frame??

Rules ... This year , what are they ???? Anything goes . You play a club you think you can beat ... Err until half past two when you see who's playing for them this week ... Rules is out of the Red Hall dictionary . Shenanigans is the word now . We may to shenaniganate with the rest to keep up ...

There was nobody called "Murphy" on the team sheets are you not getting mixed up with the lad Kyle Trout?

I thought Town didn't look like scoring, Donny defence was solid and like previous visits to Donny Town seemed to run out of ideas and accept defeat. To long a journey to come home with now't imo :( that French bloke didn't help either!!!!

Well looking at the posts I think there's a few people going over board really, the half back thing Is certainly becomming an issue but as far as performance if we had got over there line and actually scored in the first half we would have been ok!! As u will read my previous posts 3 forwards and a replacement hooker is always a must in my 17 but we cannot rely on young Callum Phillips to do everything, the lad is new to the professional game and although playing brilliant they are gradually bringing him on!! Acton impressed me today apart from that bad day at the office and back to the drawing board!! Coyle is clearly not fit yet but isn't a lost cause forber looks very intrested and I do rate Lupton also but lads need creativity and a regular 6 and 7 to play off, 2 home games next and a minimum of 4 points for me is the target!! Up the town!! Keep the faith
