Tough one this against a team who have already beaten us - will need to improve on last weeks performance - at least a bonus point is important

Struggling to drum up enthusiasm to go given the great forecast. ...no doubt come Sunday morning I will

Definitely an important game. They're no duck eggs as the Halifax victory proved. Always a good game there...I've talked myself into it....almost

I hope to be there as we are due an "unexpected" win so perhaps it will come this weekend!

If it's anything like last year it could be a game of two halves again!

It was probably our most entertaining game last year (with Fev + Fax at home). The result went against us but it was still a good match to watch.

Who do we think will be at fullback tomorrow. I hope he doesn't put penny there

Ormsby is missing too so Burke could slot in there!

Yep. Good call. What about the pack this week. No Mills or Ormsby (again) from last week. Riley's back but didnt like either Bennion at loose or the second row option he chose. Please dont say he'll chose Barlow at loose, or even at all!

Bit more composure and we would have won. I thought Burke, Smithy and Josh Barlow had good games.
For me we are desperately in need of a a calming experienced old head, we look lost at times.
Yet again we were subjected to the Ronnie Laughton refereeing for dummies.

A bonus point at least that could prove crucial come the end of the season.

Much better performance in defence today. Well done Jack Morrison for doing what Chris Bridge faied to do, and left him injured on the floor! No weak links at all, just composure missing and part of Mr Laughton's brain! Penalised us up the pitch for them to score twice.

Definitely improvement and something to build on.

Anyone know who that was warming up with us before the game?

Lots of unforced erorrs again, like kicking out on the full several times, especially in the first half so I was happy to be equal at half time.  I think Dewsbury upped their game better than us in the second half, posed more of a threat and deserved the win.  Lots of effort again but we lack a game breaking player and still look short of ideas on attack.

 

Josh Barlow was well behaved today and put in a good performance!  Still we fought back for a bonus point so credit to the team.

Been on Dewsbury's site, & they thought Ronnie L was on our side?

Shows how ###### he really is

He was rubbish for both teams today

he didnt win us the game nor lost you the game

2 poor teams playing out an unentertaining game which in the most part...boring as a game.

but a win is a win...and a bonus point is a bonus point.

It was a defensive battle. Ronnie was on form again, loads of nonsense decisions.

Dewsbury deserved it on their second half performance. I thought O'Brien was brilliant for us in the first 40. No-one really stood out in the second half for me. Ryan Shaw did well to get us field position for Clarke's try, probably the best bit of play in the second half for us. A good bonus point and a lot of positives to take, considering we had a lot of injuries.

2 poor sides today - bonus point before the game was what I had hoped for but we need to perform better than that
