The "alleged" head butting incident was almost in front of where we were standing and Olstrums head did push in to the Haven players face but no way could it be described as a head butt only by someone who was hoping to get Karl sent off.   The touch judge flagged so he obviously didn't see any head butting and he was nearer than any of us.    Clutching at straws again.

Just remembered Elliot catching the bomb in front of the jeering Jambo's and giving them a salute before he returned the ball! Classy Elliot son I really enjoyed that. :D

As for the Olstrum thing, it was almost right in front of me and I think he copped a bit of a bang in his face and pushed his head forward into the other player in response .It was a bit naughty granted but hardly a sending off. Obviously the linesman saw the same as me as if it had been a butt it would have been a red card.

Doran is unbelievable, he was giving the ref loads over where he brought a scrum back to after a knock on. But he did save Rooney's bacon.


The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!

The crack in their porta cabin, sorry club house :lol: is that old Rodders is ready to thro the towel in and head back, Rooney has had enought of there fans calling him, and there fans wanting a petition started to get the board out :lol:, Doran said in his speach after the game , he doesnt  know what they have to do to beat us,  thats easy marra score trys, defend the line, dont give penaltys away and what Town do better than you PLAY for EACH OTHER :D

I understand it was just a bad cramp that he had.

What happened with Big Red ?

it was hard to tell if he took a knock or it was his usual 65minute cramp. he was in discomfort so it could have been a bad knee.

Hmmm and apparently the two packs are evenly matched. You just couldn't make it up. I seriously wouldn't have any of their forwards. I struggle to think of which of their forwards would get in our side.

Jamie Acton showed good restraint at a scrum when Pora took a swing at him as it broke up but he missed with that as well.   Acton just pushed him away and got on with the game.

That's good because that's one thing that could hold back his progress . Channelling his aggression and being disciplined are things to work on as he matures , but in terms of talent and rawboned impact he has all that's needed

Gotta feel a tad sorry for them, rooney is coasting for the cash, woods is spending more time on his TV and pub commitments (came from more than 1 Haven player) spent a fortune on a prop who's 76, the rest of their pack is knocking on, just been beaten on their own midden by their deadliest rivals, lost 7 in a row to us, paying Dorian a fortune to crab sideways constantly, ground falling apart, lost world cup games to town who got £1/2 m of money earmarked for them , they are asking for Woods out, poorer out halfbacks out, Kenny Everett out need I go on I bet short Sirkett throws himself off then dock gates tonight followed imminently by choctard, Charlos knicker sniffer and his asbo offpring, me thinks the wheels are about to come off the Sunshine bus!!!!

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

You know when you can't remember something and it bugs you for ages? ... can you guys help me out? ...

 

What's that film with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman where he's in the desert and gets delivered a box with a head in it?
