In passing I'm shocked that Premier Sports aren't showing any game tonight in a full league week , and one that includes the biggest league game of the season in Fev v Fax . Surely it's a no brainer to show that and use it to promote the game and the league . Very strange

getting into the oppostion 20 is never a problem . Its when you get there that i think certain playes try to hard and dont let the ball do the hard work. Carter for all his great work is one of those players who sometimes try's to hard add to that a few more trying to barge over when the option of the overlap is stirring them in the face. Direction from the halves is what is needed and hard work on the training ground will see it work itself out.

 

Ive watched a couple of training sessions this year and its not for want of coaching - consistantly hitting the egdes during training, just need to convert this into the game plan and stick to it.

Sorry Keith our two poor performances at York and Donny there was some very lack lustre tackling. Normally our defence is ok but for whatever reason it can lapse around the fringes and most teams try to exploit us there especially on our right side.

 

I agree Voodooguru but since the York match I think we have improved our defence which, as you say, was none existant in those matches.   The right hand side of defence has been our achilles heel for some time now but last year we got away with it by scoring more points.   It gets highlighted more this season because we are not scoring points.     Several games last year we were 16, 18 points down through poor defence but we were able to come back and outscore the opponents and we tended to forget our poor that defence was.

Do they try different combinations on the training paddock ?? Gelling new partnerships in the key creative area needs work in training.

the wins all 3 of them have been won by the skin of your teeth and a derby game doesnt reflect a seasons games its totally different dewsbury will be fired up at home  and looking to get back in the saddle and collect all three points without giving a bonus point away. 11 up

This is  choccy, isn't it ?

I like Andy Morris a lot but he's so slow off the mark he's easily exposed. His defence is good but I think he's easily kept at arms length, deffo get luppy to loose kayle and Calum at half back olstrom spelling Matty at 9.
I would like to see Hume in centre with mossop, 10 games in and coyle still doesn't look fit, free up his wages for someone else.

Skin of our teeth???

Beat barrow 38 10,

Beat haven by 28 16,

Swinton was skin of teeth but I'll take anything away from home.

League table doesn't lie but I'm not worried about relegation and for what it's worth neither should haven be.

Good post there mate . And I like Morris to , but he is to slow off the mark and lacks the speed and fluency of movement needed in a centre at this level . He may be good from 5 yards but I can't see him being a threat from 45 . He has great assets and a physical prescence you can't buy , it's just how we use him to maximise his impact and minimise his propensity to injuries and cramps .

hes put some size on in the last 18months - when he was 18 and on the england sqaud he was big and lean and boy could he shift. Not unusual for lads of his age to go too big but thats easily corrected - dont forget the lad is still only 20

Hope to see a few town fans at Dewsbury. How are town settling into the Championship? Any players we Dewsbury fans should look out for?

Yes that's the other side of the coin wonder. He's looking at the forwards now , but it's in his hands to get fitter and leaner to stay in the backs . Still young as you say and still an exciting prospect with a great physique .A long term prospect to hold on to and nurture with plenty of raw material to work on .

Shock horror Coyle was ###### at Widnes does he still play with his head down?Very average halfback.

There's usually about 3 coach loads of fans.    Town are doing okay.   We are two games behind everyone else so probably in a false position but I would say we are much the same as yourselves.   I could say all of them but two to watch are young Callum Phillips in his first year from the amateur ranks and jamie Acton an all action prop that never stops going forward.

Acton is fast becoming a pack leader by example and a real game turner . His attitude and work rate are great , and he looks destined for better .But it would be good to see him coming on to reinforce a good start and not turning the game !! Sluggish starts are things we need to rectify , hell of a lot easier and less pressurised playing from in front from the get go.

Why not start Acton, he looks the fittest and most dynamic of our props, I totally understand the impact thing but we're a confidence team also, a good start to a game for a change would boost confidence IMO.

Why not , Thacks n Acton are our best at bending the line up the guts ,so having them off the field together gives other teams with power props an advantage in the first 20 . Then we keep clawing it back . You could start one and hold one back so their impact is spread out over a longer period and we're sure of a more explosive start . I also think the time has come now to start Matty after bedding him in , and lets really start hitting it full on from the gun . Time to hit our straps from minute one , not after our substitutions .
