Astonishing.

 

Score 32 in the first half and zero in the second.

We win and Karl Pryce scores twice in opening minutes and still people complain.

Think this result just about secures our place in CC. Only Hunslet and Doncaster look winnable from remaining games and maybe odd bonus point, so not sure top eight looks feasible.

Well done to the players, a great result.

You must have watched a different game to me then as we were diabolical in the 2nd half. In the first half we played like world beaters!

I reckon GM's half-time team talks must be a wonder to behold.

I have always said KP would come good - he would be even better if he rested and got over whatever injury he is carrying. James Craven scored two tries, so that should guarantee his position in the team for a while shouldn't it - maybe even his future at the club ? Of course I could be wrong. B)  Still a good result though, and even if we only take a handful of points from the remaining fixtures, I think we would be unlucky to go down.

It would mean 6 out of 7 teams below us having a better end to the season than us, which is very unlikely.

So last week I heard someone threw away his Season Ticket around half time and today it was threatened by one that he would not watch Dewsbury again if we did not win. Assume from that he MAY just pay a visit again.

World beaters in the first half and I suggested at half time we just turn around without a break - just in case we couldn't perform DOWNHILL in the second after a break.

Second half was diabolical and my thoughts almost.came true. That second half no-score syndrome is upon us once more!

Listening to Glenn Morrison's interview, it would seem we didn't do as we were told in the second half -again. He seems to think there are still plenty of games to go and time to build, but there isn't.

On those 80 minutes, we've no chance at Whitehaven and every league point is vital to all the teams now, but is the team bothered?

The non existent tackling in the 2nd half was the worst I'd seen from any rugby league team in many years. Morrison seems to have lost the plot as there was no leadership whatsoever when the chips were down.

Every league point is vital, and we've taken 16 from the last 24 available. We also knocked the holders out of the Northern Rail Cup.

 

We went away from home to a team scrapping for its life at the bottom of the table still without two of our main play-makers, then lost three more to injury ten minutes into the second half and still came away with the win.

 

In the first half we were fantastic but nobody (neither on here nor on Facebook) seems to want to waste their breath talking about that. We played some of the best football we've played all season and in Jonathan Schofield we appear to have one of the best attacking kickers we've had in a number of years.

 

Pryce's hands for his first try and hands + turn of pace for his second were two more 'x-factor' moments from the big man, but again doesn't warrant a mention.

 

Even my old man at half-time was predicting we'd put 50 or 60 on them, and I think if we'd have scored first they'd have crumbled, but they rallied and capitalised on our mistakes as I expected them to.

 

Tommy Gallagher getting drawn into a scuffle with the marker instead of playing the ball and giving away a penalty in our own half, knocking on when feeding the scrum, Ryan Hepworth trying to protect his face rather than effecting a charge down and conceding a repeat set, the ball bouncing straight into one of their lads' hands for an easy try after it ricocheted off Scott Hale from a nothing kick, Gregg Scott having the ball stolen after he dived on a loose ball, Brad Watkinson being penalised for a high tackle that looked for all the world a ball-and-all challenge, the freak bounce Danny Jones got for a 40/20 - some if of it our fault, some of it most definitely not, but it put them on top and they deserved their bonus point.

 

Our line speed in the last 20 minutes was really poor but I'm sure Glenn will address that. A lot has to go badly wrong for us and right for everybody else for us to go down and we will probably make the play-offs. We're also in the top ten, which will be crucial when the league splits into the two divisions of 12 in 2015.

 

Bucketloads of negativity as usual and people are entitled to their opinion, even, it seems, several of those on Facebook who didn't even go to the match.

 

But I'm entitled to my opinion too and I think to say we have "no chance" at Whitehaven and to suggest the team "aren't bothered" is extremely unfair.

 

Also to say "Glenn's lost the plot" when we've taken 16 points from the last 24 is baffling.

 

A number of people (on here and on Facebook) predicted a defeat yesterday. We come away with a win, and it's still not enough!! How can that be?

 

We don't have a divine right to hammer every team below us in the table, and to win every home game, and we shouldn't expect teams towards the bottom to roll over. Nobody has been cut adrift in this division for the first time in a long while and there are no easy victories.
