Town up to 7th now.
A point behind Haven with 2 games in hand. If you say we'd beat Keighley and get nothing at Fev, then its 2 points in front. And our points difference is 50 better.

Only 5 points separate the bottom 9. Still very close.

Was there that 100 there after all ?

 

No.    Fifty maximum.

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

It was probably one of our best kicking games today especially the height that Conner @ Lupton can get on the bomb we could do with useing it a bit more often.It seems to cause most teams a bit of trouble

Corkers aren't they . If in doubt ...!! Especially when scooting kicks and grubbers tend to run dead on our firm deck .
Poor old Chisholm was never catching that last bomb , great kick . And that try really was a sickener , taking that point away .

Yes DAVIDM the bomb towards both wingers at times while the grounds are hard i think would be better than the short gruber.I think we kicked the ball dead seven times at Dewsbury mind they where just as bad.Just another talking point????

Just been reading on Twitter that Dennis Betts offered Town 4 Widnes players for today's game and we turned them all down and still won 32 - 18.

I presume Lawton, Gore, Briscoe and Hulme. Difficult partnership decisions every week. Next week no such problem, pity also that Jordan is cup-tied.
