one thing i noticed was we done a perfect cross field kick in the 1st half, yet in the 2nd when there defensive left hand side had the sun in the eyes we either grubbered through or kicked to there right hand side. we have calders,stack and morris who are good jumpers and catchers of the ball but instead we kick to mossop and phillips who ive very rarely seen attack i high bomb

Brett was excellent today , if only he got quick ball in space he could wreck havoc . Olstrum was sensational round
the ruck to , and Acton is gonna be a great signing who your just gonna have to take as a rough package .
Calders has started the season like a house on fire , good on him for proving class is permanent.

Firstly I hope Morris is okay and I think calders went of aswell hope he's okay.
What a performance by the lads to day calderwood was outstanding coyle was oryt in the first half Walne Thackray and acton had good games to I think when we get Rooney miller and Matty back we will be even better I think we miss Matty a lot round the play the ball. Think we can get a win next week and I won't be predicting the York game cause I'm always wrong a lot to build on Up The Town

Anyone else wish Brett Carter would get to the kicks faster? He seemed to saunter over to them yesterday meaning the chase was nearly on top of him by the time he'd picked the ball up

Yeah Brett can look casual sometimes, but it's good that he doesn't panic isn't it?? :D My only problem with Coyle was how many times Sheffield broke down our right side defence. I know it wasn't only him defending that side but he did miss a few which created big holes. If he can play more consistently like he did in the first half in attack and defend a bit better with a bit of fitness returning Coyle might go OK for us. I am sure Acton will learn off Thacks & Dowes and be very good for us.

Hmmm... thought Acton offered a lot more than Dowes ?

i agree, acton was the pick of the props yesterday, it was just the daft penalties he gave away that let him down slightly, but hes going to be a big player for us this season. i think voodoo was just meaning that he would learn from the experienced lads on decision making etc.

I've been a bit disappointed with Dowes so far, maybe because of his Super league pedigree I was expecting a little more. Still it's early days yet, hopefully he will come to the fore in games to come.

i think dowes was always up against it because he was always going to be expected to have a similar impact to thacks last year. and although they play the same position, they play very differently.

I think Acton and Walne are gonna be great signings with masses of improvement in them , Acton especially is gonna be a huge fav with his rough n tumble style . And big Coward looks to have pushed on again to . I agree about Stack n Brett . They're getting punishment and could do with better ball a bit wider to give them some breathing space , as they're awesome attacking weapons .

Fair enough but does Dowes make any decisions ? I think is mind is made up every time he takes the ball in. :)

I would love to see Stacky and Brett running out wide and coming onto the ball at pace, they could be awesome.
