26 unanswered points for Dewsbury as they lead 32-18. Think the reality is the players we have aren't good enough for this division. Unless a miraculous set of players come in we are going down.

Conceding 42 points at home to Dewsbury just isn't good enough. Without Harrison it would probably of been more than 50 who got through a ridiculous amount of work.

Sorry mate, that is very negative. Without one fella,Thackeray, completely dominating the game we would have won handsomely. We matched them man for man in most other departments of the game

The Raiders are short of a couple of players who can handle this level of football but we do have good coach who is doing the best he can with the team he has been given.

When you're bottom of the league and conceding 42 points at home and 7 points off safety the general vibes are going to be negative.

We shouldn't let one player do so much damage. 3 of his tries were simple walk ins. As were many of the other Dewsbury tries.

We can't afford to be losing more games. We need a win on sunday or our season may be pretty much done.

Poor tackling, ball watching and ball retention major problems. Too much expectation that the ref should be siding with Raiders, although Rams and Raiders errors were similar and the referee was consistent (his only positive side) even if decisions were strange. The right hand side of Raiders was targeted due to the weakness in it and Raiders have only themselves to blame for the walk in tries by Rams. If the intensity of the first 20 mins had been maintained then a different result would have been on the sheet. Disappointed with the sloppiness of the Raiders and the right result was what occured.

Defensive lapses and trying to be glory boys at time were reasons for defeat today. One day I am sure certain speccies will actually KNOW the laws of the game and understand why a knock-on is a knock-on!!

 

BTW the pitch looked in good nick...

That said, We left it too late by appointing the original (untried at this level) coach in the first place & realistically gave BG too big a task to save us from the drop as the damage was done already by the bad 1st choice coach, call it negative or realistic, it is what it is.
