Whitehaven 40 Dewsbury 34 - discussion, report, highlights

It says Jon Grayson when I look at Sky Live, but anyway...
Really weird game and a lot like Swinton away, except against a much better team.
Three tries in six minutes after the 50-minute mark killed us. We conceded a try after losing the scrum against head and feed, and then conceded another when a loose ball was volleyed up the slope from 40 metres out and sat up perfectly under the posts. The third was a good one though, coming from a break made after one of our squad's better players pulled out of tackling Scott McAcoy.
This came after we'd scored just after half-time and appeared to be taking hold of the game.
My opinion is that we need to respect possession more, and have confidence that we are capable of breaking teams down with well-timed passes and runs. Some of the rugby we played yesterday was real death or glory stuff when it didn't need to be.
It was another one of those games where each set resulted in either a knock-on or a try.
We need to have faith in our ability to get over the line. Our players are strong and fast, and hard to contain from five metres out. And in Wright, Hemingway, Hyde and Thackeray, we have four fantastic distributors of the ball at our disposal. Miracle balls on the first and second tackle are not needed.
Louis Sherrif did well at full-back and Sam Wood decent too.
Whitehaven have some great players and are far too good to go down - but then so is every team in that mid-table cluster!
That's spooky and not a little worrying - I could have sworn, even with my old eyes, that it said Grayston - wouldn't have thought anything about it otherwise - but you're right. In mitigation, I was in the process of rehydrating from a morning spent tidying up a relatives 3/4 acre garden when I looked - probably just over tired. Re the match - undone by another quick winger it would seem - bit of a trend isn't it ?

What has happened to our defence - again?
