Great performance today & nice to see plenty of tries for the wingers & centre's. Plus nice to hear we had highest crowd of season.
And thirdly it was a nice surprise to find the south leeds stadium not an ice bowl, turning up in shorts & shirt I feared coming away with hyperthermia.

Top effort from the lads today Gateshead were tough first half but our fitness showed again blew them away second half.Not sure how Oaksey didn't get magic moment Joey Johns would have been proud of that dummy he threw for his try hopefully can carry on next week

A great performance against a decent Gateshead team who for 35 mins looked to be the best team weve played down here this season.The wing /centre partnership of Aston Wilson and Andy Ballard ripped Gateshead apart at times and some of the movement and quick passing along the line were the best ive seen for a long time.This squad keeps getting  better with every game and hopefully next week on a dry track can do the business at York.

I agree with your post here apart from Gateshead being the best team to play at the South Leeds stadium against us this season, I thought Oldham were better, just on that day everything went against them. I know York beat us at home this season, and rightly so, but still think Oldham has been the best opposition to date. 

 

Talking to a Gateshead supporter after the game, and he said " we used 7 HullKR Duel Reg players today and they did nothing for us" .

I found this hard to believe , but that what was said to me after the game.

 

Gateshead looked a big powerfull side , but lacked our fitness and speed, which told in the end.

Good performance from ALL 17 on duty. -- nice to see most of the tries coming from the backs.

Noted Casey Canterbury scored 2 tries on his on loan debut for Gloucester All Golds.

Gateshead did look a powerful outfit, and after 35 minutes or so it looked like a match. In those temperatures, credit to both sides. The team's fitness is amazing, and they are playing with confidence. It's all set up nicely for this Sunday at York......

Credit to the coaching staff too in the fitness levels of the players. Two matches in a row now where our fitness has been tested to the full and come through with flying colours.

Aye we're looking in good shape all right these days. Thought it might have been close for a while in the first half, but the way we blew Gateshead away after half time was a joy to behold. Some real quality tries as well, so many it was difficult to pick out a "best" one. Notice how the "half-time try" we always used to concede has gone the other way now? On at least four occasions this year we've put points on the board right on, or in some cases after, the half-time hooter.

 

And it's a sign of the strength in depth we have when you think about who didn't play yesterday for one reason or another: Maun, Mapals, Tebb, Stenchion, Akaidere, James Coyle, Cook, and of course Grimmer saw less than 40 minutes' action.

 

York away next then, and it sounds like they were in a bizarre match yesterday, be interesting to see how they respond ...

Hopefully in a depressed state and no confidence.
