Have to say - it's the best homonym I've seen for ages.

Matt James not passing.....

Greg Worthington trying to go on the outside and ending up in touch.....

Not tackling Paul Cooke....

Allowing their No 21 to boss the middle.....

Taking Ellis off just as he was getting the side going forward

No defensive aggresion.....etc etc

Three occasions in first half we had two players out wide to their one and we still failed to get the ball out to them. Saxton none too pleased, witnessing his reactions.

Is there any value in Hardman being up in attack all the time? We must have conceded more breakaway tries this season than we have scored by him being up there? Or maybe the winger on the far side could drop back deeper while still giving himself time to get up in line when the ball comes to his wing?

Steve, our back two are often caught out of position when kicks are put through. Either not deep enough or too wide. Boils down to anticipation and reading the game correctly.

No-one's mentioned the absence of Tim Spears yet! Does anyone know what was wrong with him and whether he'll be back soon? Amid the disappointment I forgot to ask Ryan about him after the match, but he did say that injuries were mounting up and most will be at least 4-6 weeks!

If anyone is in the know could they please give an update on Tim, Heppy & Anthony. I know that Kyle is out for the season but how about Sam?

Agreed, OR, but not every opposition kick is that tactical.
