Poor first half, but the most satisfying thing about today is that we won a derby game at a canter without getting out of 3rd gear.
Walne was superb again today, we have 5 props who can all do a great job. Stack put in his usual all action performance (does he ever have a bad game ?) and once again Callum Phillips was outstanding. Can't wait to see Matty and Miller back in this team, roll on Good Friday. :D

I think our likely new signing was at the game today just hope he was impressed.

well done to town for that 2nd half performance excellent...

As for us we are going down unless signings are made and due to the financial situation I doubt thats going to happen so we are buggered :o

Downward spiral from here im afraid for the Raiders...I fear for the future of the club I honestly do :(

I think whats now needed is a relaxation of the DR system were as clubs not linked can use sl kids.
I'm vehemently against these linkups but to penalise clubs that aren't link is outrages and tbh i cant see how its legal.

Sorry mate but there's a lot of fans don't like this system even some at clubs that are linked but the bottom line is that every club had the same opportunity to get a link up. We have only used the 1 lad from Widnes today and he has played 5 games for us now so no matter what system you want it wont affect us as much as others.

I remember when .............................

"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.

The paraglider was just a lad from Seaton that even had the cheek to text me to tell me he couldn't see me!!
I thought we played well in patches and poor in others. Our pack was def the difference with all of them contributing. My own MOM was Lupton but it could have been 3 or 4 of them. Some of our passing is still wayward to say the least. Without being harsh to the lad, Callum had a rough time in the first half but improved massively in the second half. I wonder if somebody told him to mix it up a bit as he started scooting from dummy half and really looked the part.
I think Stack got penalised when he challenged the kicker and the TJ came on for a shoulder charge.
Really hope this new guy is a half back as Coyle still has yet to convince me he can be the man to lead us round the park.
It was a good result in the end though.
The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!

In the second half Jarrad made a break on the popularside and two tackles later he scored a try on the other side of the pitch. He really is an all action Captain Marvel!!!!

jarrad has shut the doubters up(mainly haven fans), that he couldnt make the step up. looks even better than last year and probably dosent get the recognition as much as others as we just expect him to give 100% everyweek.
the futures bright,the futures blue and white

That break down the right hand side stack made was quality left 3 players in his wake. Walne is getting better and better each game he plays and acton is just a beast. Great win lets have York now. Up the town!
