This weekend both Hornets teams play South Wales Scorpions,with the U20s playing Scorpions U20s on Sat at Mayfield sports centre kick off 5-00pm,then on Sunday a must win game down in Neath when the first team take on the South Wales Scorpions kick off 3-00pm.The team are going down the day before so the club is doing all it can to prepare for the game.
With so few teams in our division every game is important,and the team will have to be at their best to beat the Scorpions,but if they are I believe we can come away with a victory.

Already booked our overnight stay so there will be another two coming down to Neath.

 

Hope we can get plenty of support for this vital game.

 

The lads need our backing.

The u20s game was a cracker,Scorpions edging it, think the final score was 22-30.They really tore into each other.Mayfield- St Judes was equally thrilling. St Judes winning 22 -32. The game breaker being Sam Butts sending off for a high tackle when he had been threatening to take the game by the scruff of the neck.A really great double header apart from the results.

Final Score Scorpions 30 v 28 Hornets. Late try right on the hooter.

Gutted, we just don't seem to be able to win at Neath!

We are now 4 points behind the top two so winning against Cruaders is a must.  They have a very good defensive coach, so our attack will have to be sharp and our defence a damn sight better than of late. A good fight back in second half but to concede 24 in first half and not shut out at death is careless to say the least. Defence, defence, defence.

Owdum losing at home is not much consolation!

We have a good record at Spotland, and we need a win alright.Hope the weather improves, a nice sunny day would help.

Skolars away is another bogey for us and its been getting worse.

I ve just had a puncture at Hilton Park Services message for Pooing Dog = Pugwash = Mark Wynn provide us with a winning team or clear off.


OK Lakeside, you're starting to get a bit nasty now and I don't intend to put up with it when you bring others into the mix. Any more and I'll just delete them, I know it'll feed that huge ego you keep dragging around but I really don't care OK?

 As usual we are languishing in the league behind those great bastions of Rugby League North Wales, Hemel Stags, Oxford, South Wales. Does that make sense?

Yesterday was quite simply a victory for South Wales better dual reg' agreement with Wigan and a good reflection of how seriously the bigger clubs take their particular commitments. 5 players 4 of whom have all recently played and looked good in the Wigan 1st 17 (Jack Murphy, Sam Powell, Greg Burke, Scott Taylor) vs ? from Saints.

 

That said a 2 point loss was a fairly good return especially away from home, but if the Scorpions can call on that sort of backup regular i cant see us finishing top 2 with North Wales and their Super League budget.

but what was your original post about how can three of the four things you linked together change the team even the fourth has no say in team selection .First time even on this forum some ones blamed a puncture on the moderator and chairman you really are getting desperate now .If you were at the match yesterday why did you not speak to one of the directors present I'm sure they would have answered any questions you had regarding the club not sure if they could help with the puncture though.

And as usual you choose to vent your spleen on three individuals who singularly cannot have any effect on what happened yesterday.

If you also look at the league table you will see that most clubs have played a game more than we have and both our games have been away from Spotland!

Just try to grow up a bit and think before pressing the POST button and you'll not end up looking a chump!
