No credit at all for being 32-0 up away from home then !?

You weren't even there!

32-0 to us could have went too 50 but a good team never gives up and 24-32 finish says u guys just keep plugging away and will come good
Good luck under scruffy Duffy ( not wearing a tie) for you guys he is a proper rugby man just don't let him bring in his brother jay to play

Thought we were poor today - didn't seem to have a plan (I suppose understandable following this weeks events) but Wattos gone now and we have to organise ourselves and move on - 24 unanswered points says a lot for the lads hanging in there but to let Workington get to 32 - 0 is dissapointing to say the least but although the loss of 2 points could be crucial we need to battle on.

I thought our pack was superb again yesterday against a very physical Workington side, as for Mr Browns non pass when he went through his pro's far out weigh his cons for this season.  He is my player of the season so far. 

 

I thought our backs again was a little bit ropey hopefully this is something Mr Duffy can work on in training, I also thought our players looked a bit down following the weeks events.  this is where the coach will earn his coin over the next couple of weeks,

 

I still believe if we can get a win on Friday we can stay up, from Friday every match is like a cup final.

I know nobody's going to give up the cause, coach, players, supporters and if we do end up looking down the barrel,it won't be the end but could be the start of some stability to build for the future it's been very difficult for the club, supporters, players coaching staff not having the ground or finance and you can only tread water for so long,let's support the team and coaching staff and I'm sure we'll turn the corner and the good times return

yeah I agree with you Mick, I spoke to a couple of players on the touchline warming up and he was very positive and I was encouraged by there attitudes if the fans take the same approach then we will be ok.

Dewsbury then Featherstone up next... the time to speak on the pitch is now. While I do not believe that surviving relegation in the league is ALL that matters it has to be a target and I am sure that everyone involved in the club is aiming for it.

 

Swinton's games look tough on paper but are there to be won -  I saw  a number of errors creeping back in and some desperate play on Sunday when composure was required (the no pass from Brown, R Hawyard "throwing" it out on a first tackle break to no-one, penalty not reaching touch) but I do not want to point fingers as the players mentioned were stand out performers.

 

Brought someone new to the game on Sunday and he thoroughly enjoyed the game and the experience so we do have something to sell..,. just hope he is not a jinx ;)

Bbit bored with the 'Brownygate' incident now. I am unclear as to whether a Town player managed to get in the way of the pass or he though Carter would take the dummy. You have a split second to decide and sometimes you make a wrong one. End of!

In fact i'd go as far to say we would have probably beaten Town - because they were nothing special.

 

Thanks for that quote as we don't want to be anything special, we would rather leave that for others to think of themselves.  We want to be known and seen as a workmanlike team with a good team spirit and I think we are getting there with that.   Best of luck for the rest of the season.

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

One thing I kept meaning to mention
Why wasn't the 40 20 given towards the end of the game?

Looked clear to me

Mark, there were a lot of things not given but I think the ref was confused by the pitch and thought the 40 was the half way line. Usually when the kick goes in they shout '40' but there was nothing and just a scrum to workington.

Atkin was originally outside the 40 but stepped back behind the line to kick. Perhaps Mr Bloem only noted he was over the line......perhaps he was drunk!
