just home, hardly any fingernails left, the last 10 mins shades of the Plate Cup semi final at Widnes ! Thought it was all over at 12-0 early on ( their 2nd try was a blatent push by Brown on Stu Kain in the chase for the ball  and should have been a penalty to us) but some great attack mainly by Tommy Coyle brought 4 tries in quick time.A  daft mistake led to the usual half time giveaway and when York kicked the touchline goal at 22-18 it looked game on, but John Oakes - a tower of strength in defence today, forced his way over on the stroke of half time. The only downside being 2 easy goal kicks missed which only Hunslet seem to be able to do.

The 2nd half was a war of attricion with only a great try from Welham made by Grimmer and a drop goal from Coyle to put us 33-18 up,  you just knew Hunslet being Hunslet would start to fall off tackles and York would come back at us and with prop Nicholson getting offloads for fun away they scored 12 points in no time and threw everything at us late on, however Stu Kain was a rock at full back and we held on. Hunslet had an 18th man today - the fans, never stopped singing and roared the lads on to the end,  so good to hear our anthem, Weve swept the seas before Boys, lets have the same wonderful support at Sheffield on Thursday.

Good summing up of the game today KOL. The fans were awesome. Sounded really loud from where i was sat in the main stand.

Just one more little point. Another game with no rhinos and another win. Who needs the rhinos?
Get the rhinos out of MY club

Yes, the usual nerves of steel required for Hunslet supporters!

As last week, it was a more convincing victory than the final score suggests - apart from the first ten minutes or so, and the last ten minutes when York predictably threw the kitchen sink at us, the hour or so in between we dominated to the tune of 33-6.

Thought Houston carried the pack forward, March and Haigh shared the hooking duties to good effect and the Coyles - despite both picking up knocks - controlled the half-back situation well. Grimmer got more involved than last week and Oakes got through a ton of defensive work.

And those nerves of steel of ours are going to be required again before the season is out ... we may be out of the relegation zone this morning, but almost certainly more points will be required to keep out of it.

Honest assessment of staying up after yesterday's results? No more than 50-50 ...

Ironic indeed, on the back of all the millions of words typed and uttered on Dual Reg, that we've now won two games on the trot with no Dual Reg players in the team!

Whether we can do the same again against Sheffield in obviously highly questionable, but one thing's for sure - they players have earned themselves that chance.

Same team on Thursday please ...

One of the Coyles seemed injured right from the start with his thigh bandaged.


It is far better to remain silent and be thought a fool
