Just watched the DVD . Great stuff , Callum fantastic game , everyone else top supporting efforts .Two things right in the last set of six , first Beswick dummy's and scoots through a gap looking all the world a match winner and Briscoe grabs him on his own right on the line and stops him dead , then Beswick grubbers through and Briscoe snaffles it with three bearing down on him . Phew !

surely shaun is absolute shoe in for the rest of the season, brett has to play as well but moving him more into the action really brought the best out of his game.

First thing he said was good to get a game , total waste if he's out in the cold again . He's not figuring down there , how many GB fullbacks are available ???

According to one of the RL papers this week he is interesting Featherstone for next season!!!

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.

Enjoyed my day in the Tom Mitchell longe and enjoyed the game. Thought the best team won and the ref did everything In his power to help Leigh out.

Just watched the match again on DVD and I was amazed at just how many forward passes Leigh got away with from the dummy half position.   It didn't matter if it was Penky or Nicholson 7 out of 10 went forward and some with a clear view from the TJ's.     Why does McNally go to the left wing position when Leigh are defending?     Is he the weak link in the defence and if so we should have run at him more?    Puzzled by the penalty to Leigh decision in the 73rd minute when Walne and Mossop were trying to tackle Maden.   He dropped to his knees and never once did either arm touch the ground and when Walne pushed him over and he lost the ball the ref gave a penalty for pulling him to the ground (at least that is what he signals) after Mossop had picked up the ball and was racing towards the try line!!!!

 

All in all it was a great team performance with some quite exceptional individual performances thrown in as well.

He definitely gave a second effort penalty Keith but the wrestle was still on and Maden was wriggling and dropped it cold ! He gave them a few soft penalties and piggybacks in the last quarter . Briscoe's hit on Beswick in the last set was a real highlight .

It looked like he wasnt involved much but he still had a big hand in most of the tries . Very dangerous player in attack and a real sniffer following the ball .

I must admit there's a lot more positives than negatives . He comes into the game when they have the ball , pretty sensible to hide him best they can I guess . Many a team has a player like that .
