Sounds like no Browny on Sunday - probably an early guilty plea for punching

last Sunday & a 1 match ban, but Fordy could be back

Sounds like Fordy back & maybe move Jack Latus to 2nd row, Ed Smith & Ryan Mallinder

in contention for places also.

 

Personally - & I have missed the last 2 games - I would maybe have gone for Fordy at 6

and leave the rest alone.

 

3 of us going - anybody else??

Where does it say we are going to make an example of you? I think we will be treating this game like we do every game. Have a safe journey over folks.

you were the better side 2nd half, you decided to 'keep the ball alive' in any given opportunity...it worked, we couldn't stop you offloading in the tackle.

Scoreline could have been even closer, but 1st half York were very poor. Very impressed with Jonny Presley though, and that Nathan Freer is a monster !!!!

Positive to go to Leigh and push them alot closer than we did at home, should give you confidence for next few games lads. Also other results seemed to have gone more in our favour than previous weeks.

 On reflection I would say you summed up the game quite right,to be fair the 1st half saw Leigh get 3 easy tries of which one was a blatatant knock on on your own 20 and your guy raced in,I don't think we had enough penetration near your line in the first half,but second half totally agree we looked like the team we've been for our last 2 home games and some of the Knights rugby was quality.

 aye, can't believe the Ref missed that, York through a wayward pass, a Leigh player (Ridyard?) pushed the ball forward along the ground, then picked it up before running 60 metres

We all saw that, from the other end of the pitch (north stand) !!!

Yes but York got away with just as much from the buffoon with the whistle. Like a penalty for a ball steal in a one on one. A blatant knockon at the play the ball where you scored. I do agree that you didn't deserve that scoreline and I thought the game was very entertaining. We want Pressley please.

Got to agree about Elvis , had. Good game today , thought we gave a good account of ourselves , young Minikin did well & big Dougie took both his tries well as did young Ed Smith , think with our 1st choice halfback pairing instead of Elvis & a makeshift partner who I think was Fordy it may well have been a lot closer ! But well played lads

The 'overrated pansie' looked in agony when I saw him in the car park afterwards, Nige..

Some of the rugby the lads played in the second half was outstanding and it was testament to some brilliant, never say die. defending from Leigh that we didnt get a bit closer but Leigh were superb first half. Apparently the touch judge gave the knock on from Ridyard as a charge down !!

You can see why Wigan have signed Hopkins, he's a rampaging monster but Joe Picketts had the last word with a cracking shot on him midway through the second half. Great effort from the lads today once they got out of the blocks. Possibly just had Ed Smith as MOM from Fordy, Elvis and Jack Aldo. Loved the way Ry Mallinder ran the ball in and he's gonna be very good - and we've signed him.

I thought your full back and scrum half were impressive.

 

For 15 minutes in the second half you looked like the Harlem Globetrotters . Great stuff.
