Back in the mire!22-16

Our reversion back to one man rugby for whatever reason was our ultimate undoing.
Credit to Workington though, they looked a far better side than the one we played earlier in the season amd will stay up on that showing.
Massive month coming up, could be back in the relegation dog fight if we dont win a couple of games against the 'big 4'.

Black was good - we just don't need his constant appeals to the ref ... Overall a good game between 2 equal sides ... Surely you have better than Keegan hurst though ?
Must have been better than listening to your one eyed fans yesterday. according to them we were offside at every play the ball and all our passes were forward. Me i think you deserved to win as Workington were the better side on the day. We never threw in the towel and to be honest i think the scoreline flattered us a little but like other fans glad we came away with a bonus point . Well played and good luck for the rest of the season .

What's with doom and gloom lost 1 game in last 5 picked up a bonus point,we have stopped teams from getting bonus points too,we win 4 games in a row we are deep in relegation we are 6th 1 point behind the rams,we played a much improved Workington team that are moving up like we have pushed up into play off spots,I would be more worried if like fev lost to Rochdale 2nd from bottom who don't seem to be improving like Workington
Agreed Marko9 we can win on Sunday just need to get more from our bench players as in the last two games they have had little impact and we have to stop slipping back to the one man rugby that got us into trouble earlier in the season.

Oh no not Miles ! now i am worried . He is our only real strike player and with the next four games being Halifax and Leigh at home Sheffield and Fev away i wonder where our points will come from. The only other game that Miles missed was Sheffield at home with him we probably would have beaten them. May i suggest JK admits he was wrong and go and get Conner from Hudds for a month. A centre too please. A little quality wins matches look at workington on Sunday with Jack Murphy, Dom Manfredi, and Declan Hulme they made a massive difference to their team. I do not like DR but staying up is everything to our club. Hopefully this is where having a quality coach makes the difference.

We're fine in the forwards. Neither Brennan nor Leary are regular material at the moment, so why not loan them out with a view to keeping them match fit. Unless you think John Kear should be planning to play Leary at centre and Brennan at full-back? Maybe he's really good under the high ball, I don't know?
Have said all along that with small squad and lack of DR help we need all the players on our books and can't afford to be sending players out on loan. We're down to a regular 19ish so need those 2 back on our squad NOW. Leary especially I believe has had a very rough deal - he seems only to get picked when it's a big game i.e. he played v Fev but doesn't seem to get a look in in games where we should be dominant which would give him more of a platform. He's good, but definitely seems to be being put in a position where he won't want to stay next year, Brennan could be the same, they're both of a similar age and can't be learning any more by being at York, with respect to them and GT.

nah brennan on the wing as fantastic turn of pace and over 100 metres is fastest player we have

Could be a game changer in the survival race that. Lets hope JK has something up his sleeve.

Yes a shock of reality but we will bounce back.

As BTJ said i am hoping Jk has something up his sleeve i have seen what we have. We need re- enforcements in the backs now. We have lost our two main strike players in Griffin and Greenwood there are 8 games left with only 1 game where i would say we will definately win . The next 4 are tough to say the least. Lets see how much desire the team has we certainly need it.

Exactly. York had a similar experience last season with Jamie Shaul, who displayed a blatant lack of effort in the few games he played for them. To be fair to Sir Gary, he showed him the door immediately - as did John Kear to Jake Connor.
Sorry but Connor is too lazy. He played like he didn't want to be there and put no effort in at Leigh. There is a difference in having a bad game but putting in the effort (no matter what position you are in) and just not trying and seeming like playing in the championship is beneath you.

I think Connor played for the Giants last night, as did Mullally, so can be discounted for Sunday.
