So we know what has to be done ... going to be a tough old season and we will have to make CP a fortress but more importantly we HAVE to be much much better away from home this year and not beaten before we even get off the bus !!!

Mmm,maybe somebody can straighten that up for me?
We were 4pts away from 9th place last year so we have got a bit to do and Haven only got 4 bonus points which is a pretty poor effort considering we got 9?

If you were coach what would be the best strategy,target games we think we can win and rest players for games we do not realistically have a chance in, or go out to win every game?
Something to think about maybe?

Go to win every game!

Otherwise, you might not win the ones you target but along the way, you might win games you thought you didn't realistically have a chance in.

Best case is you win all the games you target and because you have your best team out, you pick up some wins you thought you didn't have a chance in.

Also, as a paying supporter, I'd like to see the best possible team put out every time.

I'm with Walney Bill, give 100% every game and don't just roll over for the so called big boys.

Agreed bonus points so important as well

Cherry picking last year would have seen us put out a weaker squad for the Halifax game that we won, had we not won that game we would have already been relegated.
