The thing is though, winning is more important than anything else currently with the proposed shake-up. Our gates are poor and the best way of getting money in is through prize money. Open skilful rugby means you have to have the cash to buy the players capable of playing that type of rugby. We are struggling to hold the ball for a full set playing 1 out stuff, imagine how much more ball we would lose if we were throwing it about?
People are whining about the last 2 games, but how much rugby did Sheffield play? All they had was the kick and the barge over and a freak try from a ball steal. Hardly Nrl football is it. Leigh similarly. The conditions were dreadful on both nights.
Again with a couple of correct calls by the ref in both games probably would have seen a different result in both games. I'm not saying we are playing good football, but in the last 2 weeks we have had to play the conditions.
We have lost to 3 of the other teams around us and drawn one, but unlike all of them, we have put all of the teams below us to bed. Fev lost at York, Sheffield to Workington, Halifax to Dewsbury and Leigh got hammered against Halifax. Tbf nobody has looked like stuffing us, and if this is part of the longer term plan then so be it. It's alright saying I'd rather be entertained and lose every week, but long term can you see Rochdale and Oldham surviving? I can't. By doing what we are doing, we are better placed to be in sl2 if it comes off and the better funding it will bring. Therefore it has to be the right plan of action for the club, so come on, rather than moaning get behind the club. We are perpetual overachievers and better placed than every other club our size to progress in the future, yet some are still moaning.
