All round a very functional performance by Hornets the first half we looked slick and solid in the tackle. The game never really got going second half if that makes sense? The amount of basic errors by Gateshead was embarrasing at times, giving Hornets some great field position.
I though Crooky was superb first half with his 40/20's. Not sure how the sponsors got to Wayne English as man of the match. Crook and Baines where the stand outs for me. I am not saying Wayne was poor just average really, but thats my opinion.
My only possible negative observations so far this season is that the pack does seem a tad small, although we look solid in the tackle i would personally like to see a bit more size in the pack. Also whilst slick with the ball at times, we do seem to over egg or over play which given time will sort itself i am sure. Gateshead capitalised on a couple of intercpets but simply couldnt make us pay. I cant see Oldham or N. Wales letting us off.
I also attended the ex player dinner and Heritage launch. Just want to say what a good dinner it was. I personally feel it should be an annual event. Getting the old players up to the club once a season with their families and making thme feel welcome and part of it should be a given. Great to see some old faces in the bar.
Hopefully my post are viewed as positive, and I cannot be held responsible for causing any offence to anyone associated with this message board
