Brilliant. The moaning barstewards by us were at it for 80 minutes straight. Where they find the stamina to be that negative for that long is a miracle in itself.

And of course we're biased - that's the whole point of writing a blog.

Is the point of the blog also to moan about and blame the ref?

It must be, obviously Rochdale were the better team and only got beaten because of the referee's mistakes. I chuckled at the description of our pack as being "king size" too.


Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

He must think our pack is one player, as other than big Rowley we have been smaller than pretty much every pack we have played this season.

They even had their own reporter for the League Weekly as well.    He had Rooney scoring when it was Hulme and Rowlandson held up under the posts when it was Coward.   Seems like he made it up as it went along as well.

I remember when .............................

"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.

They should've used the blog report. We're biased, but accurate.
