I'm surprised that there has been no discussion regarding our prospects on Sunday. Is this a reflection of swaggering confidence, shuddering pessimism or increasing apathy? I could live with the first two but the last one would worry me greatly.

 

I reckon that we'll come out on top this time by 6 points following a blistering opening quarter, stuttering second 20, rejuvenated third 20 then a worryingly inept finish. Does this sound familiar?

Think it will be a tight game with a lot of Rams players back from injury, so win by 4points for the Rams.

All depends on which Dewsbury and York team turns up. Both have had an up and down season so far. York beat fev but then came within a whisker of losing in the CC. I wouldn't like to guess no result would surprise me, could be a 30 point win by either side.

York just cant play away from home we struggled at Blackbrook, got hammered at Batley and Sheffield, both Barrow and Keighley were bottom till they played York, yet we beat Fev only just got beat by Fax a game we should have won and beat Swinton and Worky easy at home.

In view of York's home form, I reckon they will win and we will slip a little more down the ladder.

If the Knights can hold thier form that they showed against Fev and Swinton then we should see a entertaining game,providing both teams get a fair crack from the man in the middle, a certain G Stokes.

In view of York's home form, I reckon they will win and we will slip a little more down the ladder.

If the York team have all duel - reg players from Hull then i can't see us getting much from the game,we might have a bit more experience in the pack with Jones back in the team.I will go for York 26 - Rams 10. Might be better if we don't score first like we have in the last few league games.

Im happy with a point, considering our league form going into this game. It gives us something to build on but second halfs are still a problem. I think in the last 4 league games in the second half we have scored 4 points. Not sure why. AOB was on team sheet thought we weren't having any DRs this week.

I thought York threw the ball about and offloaded well although on a couple of occasions a better team would have punished them!!

We didn't play any kind of expansive games majority of the time. When we strung more than 3 passes together we got over the line. Poor kicking game with wind in second half and don't even get me going about the kick offs. Out on the full once, can be forgiven but ........

I know we have some young players who are learning but just not quick enough. Tactically we are still naive and that's not the players fault, it's down to Glenn and the coaching staff. They need to watch and watch videos of our games, it's obvious to most supporters what needs to happen.

Not going to criticise any of the players, other than to say some need to take a long hard look at themselves and ask if they are giving all they can, whilst others should be banging Glenn's door down to be given more of a chance.

Ignore the cups for now, next 4 games, Workington, Keighley, Swinton home all winnable and Eagles away, slim bonus point chance.

Chins up lads, learn from mistakes, be prepared to throw the ball around and we won't go far wrong, hopefully!!
