Gateshead 52 - 55 London Skolars this afternoon. Sounds like a defensive masterclass!

Is 52 points a record for points scored by a losing team in an RL game?

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I was going to ask the same!

You've got to ask questions when you score 50+ points and still can't win!

Poor old Gateshead.  They score over 50 but still can't win!  Their fans must be in despair!

I have no sympathy for them; if you can score 50 points and still contrive to lose you deserve everything you get.

I see that new 20-tackle law didn't quite work out as the RFL hoped.

At least neither team folded as the points mounted up against.

Chris, do you remember the Fev Vs Gateshead score that ended up 64 - 44?

I bet the game today was a belter though!

well thankyou for that comment, try supporting a team like us, most of the seasons we've had we've been hammered most games and I mean hammered I was at blackpool when we got hammered and had 100 put past us I could go on with scores that we've been hammered by its been so hard watching us get hammered over the years now we score 52 though still lose, to get beat by just 3points is a big improvement for us, not many of us though we love our club! and always will love them! so unlucky today gutted though roll on next game v Rochdale, were still alive as a club and that means so much to our small band of loyal fans!  onwards and upwards! come on thunder! come on thunder!!

most probably along the lines of "it wouldn't have happened if we still had promotion and relegation"

I tweeted the London game yesterday, like the Broncos it was a struggle to keep up with play.

Well said.

 

I reckon the Thunder fans are the hardiest bunch in rugby league.  And they always seem to be the first to support the sport with their organised coach trips to the Challenge Cup and international matches.  Great community club.  Just wish they could get more wins!

Well said mate. I sometimes get depressed watching the Bulls lose a lot but in reality am just moaning for the sake of it. Like many I have a soft spot for Gateshead...and also Skolars (patronising alert!!)
