Thought the crowd was poor yesterday, looked more v barrow. Dissapointing how despite the improvements on and off the field, people of dewsbury are not giving the club more backing. Should be getting gates of over 1,000 at worst but likes already been said, we ain't doing enough to get into the publics faces. We need to be ramming that message to the dewsbury public about our team! getting into the schools town centre and rugby clubs dishing out free junior tickets.
It was the highest gate in our Division on the day Chris. The weather forecast was bad (and correct), it's school holidays, CC semi-final on the telly - it's not just about promoting the game, people have to want to do something in the first instance. As a matter of interest how big do you expect the attendance to be next Sunday?
I must admit that I was baffled by the crowd figure as it did look to be smaller than for the Barrow game but maybe there were more in the main stand.
It was definitely a curate's egg of a match with a whole host of mistakes on both sides (as well as the man with the whistle). The difference came when Spicer & Gallagher came on, giving the team much more impetus but maybe also coinciding with the Rochdale pack starting to blow - there were quite a few fat lads out there today. Pryce had a really good game again, Wright was good when he was good and not when he wasn't, Hemingway was something of an enigma again, and Buchanan probably summed up the whole team performance scoring a couple of excellent tries and missing some straightforward tackles.
3 points will do - we can't be worldbeaters every week.
