๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ fair enough no biting then๐Ÿ˜ณ


Haha all in good fun Gaz!

I think Huns deserve a bit of credit, regardless of whether you switched off or not, 26-0 at half time we could have fallen apart and lost 68-0 like last year but we hung on in there, to win the second half is a top effort

Yes but barra did the same last week to us. It's our fault we should be racking up the points instead of not coming out for the second halfs. We should of had 60 plus this week and knocking on 80 plus last week but we seem to relax when we know the game is won instead of punishing the teams severely more. Same as last weeks first half we looked world beaters second half we looked relegation fodder. I'm just really worried about our switching off so easily when we think the games won. It will come back to bite us hard especially against the top teams in our league.

I wouldn't say we relaxed, we bombed at least 4 tries in the second half and had one disallowed. We also had 4 tries disallowed against Barroew in the second half. Defence went to sleep when Finn went off.

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

Failed goal kicks reduced our total. The fact that we regularly drop off the pace in the second half of our games, is becoming a worrying feature and must be dealt with.Championship contenders in any sport, DO NOT let opponents off the hook.
We were outpointed in the second half and our failure to convert good approach work affected the final result.

We've been on the floor since 1999, but we are still hear, give us a couple of millionaire owners pumping hundreds of thousands a year into our club and I'm sure we would pick our selfs up too.

To my knowledge we have had no millionaires for the past four seasons or even before that; However I do understand that when a club is at the top for so long a certain bitterness creeps in; Its called envy and it is quite natural to feel that way; God I hated Hunslet too a few years ago; But I do wish every championship club good fortune; We are enjoying our success at the moment; Like you enjoyed yours; Its swings and roundabouts as you are fully aware;

If I may I interject. ..
No-one gave fev owt here. In 2004/5 we were in admin and relegated to the bum end of the leagues. The club was on it's botty when tony kenny got mark campbell involved. The ckub has grafted it's @r se off to attract new money. Money from sponsors and investors. They didn't just show up saying here's a big wad!!!!
Mark campbell and his bod, the ceo and marketing manager are astute enough to fetch in money we were once only dreaming of.
The club has worked its nads off to pick itself up!!!

Wow if it wasn't for mark Campbell, poskitt and the rest of the people at our place that work their butts off for our club and the fans who make us the best supported team in RL for the size of the place then millionaires wouldn't of been attracted to our club. Maybe if people like you at your club got off your butt and put in 10 percent of the above that has been put in at our club you might actually get somewhere. Slagging off the BOD really? Do you think people just put money into our club because they like us? It's down to very hard work that's why we are where we are.

I think the penalty count second half could be looked as a reason for Hunslet's revival, certainly one try came from a series of 4 penalties on the trot. Not saying Hunslet didn't deserve them but we all know it's the penalties the refs don't give that turn matches. e.g. The first penalty of that series was for offside, only seconds before with Hunslet on their own line, several of their players were yards offside - no penalty.

Sorry. I cannot let that go, HIST work as hard as anyone for this club

Don't confuse hard work for money, we have plenty of the former, you have more of the latter

thats a very recent thing. It most certainly wasn't like this only a few years ago when the club was on its botty.
Do you think investors just knocked on possy's door saying "here tha goes owd lad. Have a big wedge"? :rolleyes:

Did you fev fans watch the same game, before the game when everyone was calling you big headed I was all for sticking up for you, but the comments in hear are just a joke.

Hunslet gifted you 4/5 tries in the first half with individual errors, granted some of these errors were down to good pressure from yourselves but others were just bad reads by defenders. 2nd half Hunslet cut out these errors and actually got 50% of the ball, first half you had about 70% of the ball, hence coming back into the game.

P.s.
You won the penalty count.
