...26-24....with last minute try and conversion.  Fortunately, their kicker had a bad day as we were outscored 5 to 4 tries. Crooks' penalty from inside his own half the difference.

It must have been painful to watch us surrender a 12 nil lead, but credit to Hornets for playing 80minutes.

Still feel our defence will have to be improved if we are to get promotion.  Can we please play anyone but London!

We got out of jail today. Our sliding defence was caught out three times for easy tries. It a good job that their kicker had an off day and Crooky had a good one. All the best to London in their next game. They looked gutted as they left the field.

We will have to up our game for next week.

A win is a win though so well done lads.

Good game to watch as a neutral. Hornets started really well but should have posted more points while they were dominating the game. Skolars improved in the second half and I thought they would go on to win but a spilt ball in the tackle close to the end of the game gave Hornets the points in the end. Unusually for Dylan Skee to be so off target otherwise it would have been a Skolars win.

I watched the game as a neutral too but feel it was more of a slow start from London rather than a good start by Hornets. Hornets never gave the game up and I always had a feeling, even in the last minute, that they would pull it off. Well played Skolars, you were unlucky. I have to be honest, and say I don't believe Rochdale will beat Oldham twice in the play offs, or Skolars for that matter, therefore, if I was a Hornets fan, I would not be too upset to lose at Whitebank next Sunday. I will be there again as a neutral of course.

7 to 0 penalty count first half was a joke as was the putting on report of the high shot on oscar thomas that was a sending off imo especially as a try was begging.

Who are you kidding your number 10 was trying to take everyones head off all the game.

Two wrongs don't make a right. I was a complete neutral at the game. Hewer should have sent the Hornets man off for that challenge, and I am a believer that the game is going soft. I don't start shouting off at every challenge.

Hewer should also have stopped the slowing down of the play the ball that London continually did throughout the game.

I have to wonder how much effect the calls of "you're an idiot ref" etc, has on the decisions he makes. Equally I often wonder why the people shouting it, are not out there doing the job they obviously feel they would be so much better at.

The game at all levels is desperate for good referees and I'm sure the R.F.L. would love to hear from you.

I agree that he should have clamped down on the slowing down of the 'play the ball', I think the Skolars were penalised on five occasions for 'lying on' . Why did he not  use his discretion and give the whole Skolars team a final warning earlier in the proceedings.

 

Although we have Crooky to thank for his flawless goal kicking, some of our tackling was tremendous which forced the Skolars back on many occasions.

 

Gaz Langley was an able replacement at full back for Wayne English but one of best assets was our discipline against a very crude Skolars number 10.

We must maintain our discipline and tighten our defence - we certainly do not wish to play catch up again.

The attendance against London was a disgrace, but emphasises the need to get out of this division. Hopefully, we shall be in full voice and better numbers on Sunday and celebrating a GF place.

If I was a Hornets fan I would be slightly hoping to lose at Whitebank, win through against Skolars again and take on Oldham at a neutral final venue where anything can happen. Can't see Hornets beating Oldham twice "on the trot", but can't see Oldham beating Rochdale 3 times "on the trot" either!

Keep taking the Lithium CR, as if any Hornets fan would ever hope to lose against the Biffs (slightly or not).

You may not start 'shouting off' at every challenge but a shed-load of your fans do! They wanted Gaz Middlehurst banned for life when he was sent off for us at your gaff but changed their minds when he signed for you!!!

I didn't put that very well PooingDog, but you know what I am trying to say, and I'm sure a lot of your supporters would secretly agree with me. Incidentally, I am a neutral, but if it comes to a Rochdale .v. Oldham final I hope you win it simply because your timekeeper - Ray is a really genuine, decent, honest guy who deserves to see his team have some success. I know people at Oldham too - stand off Lewis Palfrey learned his early rugby league with my amateur club, but I have rarely met a man who knows his club so well as Ray knows Rochdale Hornets. I was also good friends with Frank Fielding RIP, another top Rochdalian.

I am certain that most Hornets fans would hope we win on Sun. and to the GF, leaving our neighbours to have some more match time in the next round!  This may be their preference too, given their blank weekends and they have bettered London this season.  However, "knockout" matches are a different matter.

I wasn't at the game but have seen the DVD and if the 'sending off' incident was the high shot after 16 minutes of the second half I think the referee and TJ got it sot on.  First and most important, full marks to the London player for getting straight up with no histrionics and showing no injury was sustained.  The arm was reaching out and no swinging arm was involved so a penalty and an 'on report' was correct for me.
