Last minute try for the Knights, kick to come, it goes over, 24-26. Sounded like the better team lost, but a wins a win

It is embarrassing, however to be honest apart from the loss of income from Cup games what would we have lost ? This season should just be all about staying up and hence less games, less chance of injury to key players and focus on the future of the club not just a few cup games that realistically end up at nothing.

Know it sounds a bit blunt but it's fact.

Also big well done Blackbrook, any amateur side who push a semi-pro team that close deserve a big pat on the back.

Onwards and need to win next Sunday now.

Agree its a balancing act and that staying in the Championship is the main priority, but to have lost today, no matter how well Blackbrook played, would have been embarrassing to say the least. Anyway we won and hopefully will get a decent draw and earn some much need £££££

Sam Scott - " The best team lost".

 

Gary Thornton - " That was unacceptable". Again.

 

GT also gave the impression that the Knights are a different team without Simon Brown, if thats the case we need to wrap him up in cotton wool.

 

Its a good job we weren't playing one of the top amateur sides ( no disrespect to players like Marshy and Sean Richardson) but as Shadow says a win is a win.

Well,i listened to the whole game on radio.It was torture from minute 1 to minute 90.For gods sake why on a pitch like langtree park do we play through the forwards constantly.Our completion rate,especially 2nd half must have been shocking.Dropped ball after dropped ball.James Haynes seemed to show up well.Nobody else came across well on commentary.

If i"m honest it feels like a defeat.Take my hat off to Blackbrook.Didn"t deserve to lose.Lee Marsh and the prop,was it Steve Marsh had absoloute blinders.To come within 7 seconds of beating a semi pro club must be gut wrenching.Genuinely feel sorry for them.

Sounds like the boys will be put through the mill this week at training and rightly so.Cant afford to be putting in performances like that.As long as the players realise today was unacceptable,they can put things right this week,ready for a massive game against Dewsbury.

I'd beg to disagree, Peter. The Knights were very ordinary today but give Blackbrook a couple of seasons and they will be challenging for NCL Premier honours.

That's the spirit! We won't have gone out there looking to dazzle, just to win however we could. I'd like either Rhinos (home or away) or Cas at home (cos we'll hammer them from the terraces). I don't want any of the "minnows" that are left in.

Dewsbury next weekend will be a good game, I'm really looking forward to it, should be a cracker.

Hope we get a home draw, think we will give most teams a game at home but our away forms not so good just yet, maybe an away game in the round after next to Leeds or Hull F.C. :rolleyes:

I was particularly impressed with the way we started the second half today, the ability to knock on in our first 4 consecutive sets and not get out of our own half in any really took some doing against a team 5 divisions below us. Blackbrook were by far the better team, more enthusiasm, more skill, very few mistakes and they knew exactly how to play the game at their pace without niggling. We got out of jail big time today and we didn't really deserve it, if we carry on with this away form I very much doubt we'll get another point on our travels this season.

Yet beating probably the strongest team in the division the week before. Beggars belief.
