They're a well oiled machine really , at least you won't be losing out on most other teams who go there . Survival or not wont rest on these games , it'll be consistency of results against the other 9 teams around you .

I've just watched the highlights Lee and your left side defence was none existant.    It looked as if no-one wanted to tackle big Bostock and he lumbered over for two tries.    They certainly didn't have to work too hard for their 60 points did they?

deep down hand on heart, i see us losing by 30points. fev are a top quality side and we are never great away from home. we would have to produce our best performance of the season to get even a bp. as for the team i would hope big red is back in for flynn with mossop going on the wing, briscoe will be out so that leaves a place on the bench for walne and i would bring dowes back in as well for the suspended olstrum.


Olstrum won't be suspended for Fev as his hearing won't be until a week tomorrow

Maybe a bad thing - rather miss Fev away than a vital game at home to Dews . But that's the rub I guess .

Keith I cannot bring myself to watch it again mate :-( it was bad enough on sunday. We struggled big style without Harrison, Mossop, Dawson and Casey's kicking game. Didn't help with Danny Jones going off before half time and not being able to return.

There are a good few players who just arn't good enough in this league and we are paying for taking the moral high ground re feeder club/dual regging or whatever you want to call it. Although having said that Holty quite rightly withdrew from talks with Wigan as they were going to FORCE him to play two or three players they offered each week at the expense of squad lads, which isn't right whichever way you look at it!

Lets face it Haven won on sunday with a big dollup of Saints help from what I heard on the radio...I wish we had that help available to us ;-(

Ho hum

Even an early plea would start after Fev match as all non SL offences are dealt with on the second Tuesday after the match

Last season we would have been concerned about Olstrum facing a ban but this season we have enough cover to get by without his services.

10/07/11 Karl got two matches - Rochdale v Workington Town, nothing else as far as I can discover. Therefore he can go for the early guilty plea.

Charlo in the star hoping Briscoes injury isn't as bad as feared ( let's hope so ) . Also , believe it or not , talked about errors and penalties ... Who woulda thunk it ? And also mentioned the ' team on paper ' . But you get no points for that . And that Karl is looking at a two gamer , and might be a few chucked in to go to Fev . Mentioned Walne to , I presume he's been injured as he's on loan and was MOM v Leigh and then vanished ?

I suppose he could also have talked about misplaced aggression as well.   Yes, we want our lads to be tough and not only stand up to the opposition but get on top of them.     That has to be controlled though not just off the cuff aggression where penalties are given away.   An example being at the end.   Did Karl need to to drop Houghton at that stage and get himself sent off and possibly miss two games?     If that had been in our own half that penalty could have cost us the bonus point.
