I'm a born and bread Lancastrian, Shun.

Exactly what good would it do to get Darren Holt out. He doesn't miss tackles, make forward passes etc. From a financial point of view at least we have a Club.

1 minute to go and we are back in BP territory. Haven penalty just on hooter. Missed by Haven so we get a BP.

Sorry Shun. The bit about Holty was replying to Raiders96. Is that what you meant by 'Eh'

Pluses to come out today are that Keighley & York got hammered albeit to Fev & Leigh but I get the league table updated as follows:
Fev 35 points
Fax 35
Sheffield34
Batley 34
Leigh 33
Dewsbury 21
Haven 21
Town 18
Donny 17
Swinton 17
Hunslet 16
York 15
Barrow 15
Keighley 14

It's still very tight and 4 points divide 7 teams (1/2 the league)

Our defence has been a problem all season. We are conceding far too many points.
Darren highlighted this problem after some of the heavy defeats and said they were working on this aspect of the game.
We know we can score tries but how do we stop them?
Is there a specialist defence coach available to come in on a consultancy basis (and if there is can we afford him)?

we were very poor today...Haven not a great deal better but enough to put them a good few places above us in the league.

A BP was all I think we would get today and at one point I thought we were going to have 40 put into us so the point is the only plus point from today

What was the problem with Finchy today ??

Another ###### poor result, any other coach would be given their cards but as its sir darren he can carry on until we are in the abyss, and still then people on here will say he has done a good job when we are second behind the likes of rochdale. He aint a coach, nowhere near one, get you blinkers off, attendances are atrocious, players not playing for him, get rid

Another poor show. Was it the players. Was it the coaches. Not really bothered anymore with all the excuses this season but things have got to change fast or we won't have a crowd soon.

What are the Club supposed to do. I think Darren is on a 2 year contract. Who would you suggest replaces him and at what cost. Surely we've been down the road of sacking coaches enough in the last 5 years and it cost plenty.

Having said that I completely agree with you Gary it is very worrying. When the supporters base falls it's very hard to get it back as I'm sure Haven and Town will testify.

We're still only a win off town I guess but time is running out to try and hit form. I think we're going to have to beat a big side at home which is worrying.
