This game dose not set me on fire one bit so will be giving it a miss this week,

Fev 62 v 14 Hunslet

att 1834

I don't make predictions and never will (lol) but I think that Hunslet will not be a total pushover that you might think. They have the likes of Liam Hood, Jamel Chisholm and Jimmy Keinhorst, all good young lads from the Rhinos. Tom Bush doesn't always make the starting 13, and what a talent he is. Liam Welham was a good lad for us and his running power in the centres may pose problems. Danny Grimshaw is a good half back and would get into most teams in the championship, also they have the experience of P
David March , Tom Haughey and Richard Moore. They've got a couple of wins under their belts this year and under Marchy they are going to spoil and it may be difficult to get any fluidity going against them. I see it similar to the match v York at home last year when it took some attrition to wear them down on that occasion. Having said that I could be totally wrong Neil Lowe could be Full back and Rovers could rack up 90 odd but I doubt it . I was hoping to see another glimpse of former Rovers stalwart Stevie Dooler, but he has now hung up his boots at the ripe old age of 34.

Good luck to Andy Kain today provided he is fit and selected currently on 99 career tries for the Rovers,a gem of a player.

Abysmal second half from fev today - totally unprofessional and poor attitude, got what we deserved in the last 5 minutes

It was more of we took the foot off the gas AGAIN in the second half. Which is concerning me I know the game was never in doubt through out the 80 mins but our last 2 second half performances have been dire at best. We don't just take the foot off the gas 50 percent when we know we have won the game at HT we take our foot off the gas nearly to the point of who cares we've won anyway which is very worrying at the moment I feel.

I think it was more to do with Huns not stepping on the gas until after half time

The score should have and would of been a lot more in our favour if we had kept the intensity up from the first half. Hunslet didn't really up a few gears we dropped from fifth gear into reverse which we did last week in the second half too and its very worrying from our point of view.

You did well to beat our second team, we rested our front line players, Sinfield, Burrow and McGuire were rested for Donny next week

It must worry you that little old Hunslet had you on he ropes in the second half ;)

Had we put those bombed chances away early in the 2nd half the score woukd have been 50+
However we didn't and the half disintegrated into a bloody mess where the result was never in doubt.
The other unbeaten side towed their rops out up at york.

We were going to win anyway through out that match we just thought we would take a rest in the second half as that is becoming the norm for us a lately. We could of not come out for the second half and we would still of won the game that's how comfortable it was for us. I'm just more disappointed in us taking the foot off the gas in 2 consecutive games in the second half than worrying about little old hunslet as you put it.

At last, a bite! Here fishy fishy!

You did come out for the second half, and we won it 18-10, maybe you should have stayed put in the dressing room

We did stay in the dressing room in mind as the game was already won. We just had 13 bodies that came out in the second half. Oh well at least you've won a second half you might wont to go one better next week and win the game 😄😄😄. Doubt you will do though as I'm sure a pub team would be able to beat you lot😉. Your team is poor even with the whinos players in it I'd hate to think what it would be like without the whinos players in it. ( wait for it).

But joking aside that's 2 second halfs in a row we have decided to not come out for the second half. Ok the games have been won before HT but its a little worrying. Unless DP wants to keep us fit etc because at the end of last season we seemed to run out of steam maybe this is a tactical thing to save fitness etc.
