I am pretty certain that Halifax will be in a scrap at the top of the league and that we will not be directly involved in that and therefore the team performance did bode well for the season. The pitch was sticky but the lads stuck in there, tackled hard, and got some just rewards at the end with a strong finish and a couple of tries (perhaps a good advert for the "bonus point").
My biggest concern was the scoring of quick fire consecutive tries which can quickly leave you out of sight in a match and Halifax scored tries in twos it seemed.
Been a while since I saw a scrum half completely covered in mud at the end of the game..... summer rugby eh?
Sheffield on Sunday will be as big a challenge as Sunday but hopefully (as this will be their first game) it is a good time to catch one of the top few teams before they get going.
PS - thought Jordan went well at full back and foiled a fair few breaks with his cover. Bet he was glad he was not facing Penny though...
I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.

my team for Sunday would be as follows (considering the 3 lads dr lads haven't been named in the Wire squad for this weekend).
i'd also like to see Peet and Walker but not sure if they'll be back from injury.
