Agree with ND about Tom...very good kicking game but not really got the speed of thought or hand in comparison to Moore, who also creates more room for Ben Black too with his slick movement. Tom seems to hold onto the ball that split second too long at times, and doesn't take on the line enough at all, which is a tad frustrating as he has pace and a good step...the try against Dewsbury a prime example of that. Still, a decent and reliable back up. Moore and Black first choice though for me now, with Mennell and the impressive George F sharing the hooking role. Hopefully Black's rib injury isn't as bad as it looked.
Professional display today, despite a lack of cohesion in the main in attack with too many forward passes and dropped ball. Thought the pack were excellent throughout, particularly Ash, Brev, Rowe and my MOM Baz. The DR lads didn't let us down either.
Even though he didn't do anything particularly spectacular, Ayden Faal is starting to look like the player who used to cause us lots of problems when we played the rams too, which is a positive.
Agree with Chairman about Applegarth. Any team would miss his workrate and outstanding defence. He also acts as a bit of a leader on the field too.
Speaking of which, 129 points conceded in 10 games is an outstanding achievement, and one which the players, coaching staff and JK can be proud off. Add a little more consistency with ball in hand and there's no reason why we can't reach some finals this year.
Roll on the Giants.
