Gents - Alan E does enjoy opposition ass licking, just too nice a bloke to give you the truth
Firstly great craic in the North stand with your fans - proper banter, look on the blokes face when I suggested a merger with Haven was a joy until he realised I was extracting the urine.
Onto the game, we had two players out with ops and 'rested' Acton, Barlow and Pitman, getting some game time for new recruits Walker and Platt - a very strong team all the same. The game itself was poor, with terrible officials who seemed to forget we are in the entertainment industry. Lots of emotion about on the day, and lots of 'distractions' the club /players have been involved in the past couple of weeks probably didnt help
You dominated field position and possession early doors and moved the ball along the line without looking dangerous, it lashed down late morning and again during the game compounding the errors and poor officials - you got the point that will keep you up and we took a scrappy win in our heritage game
All the best for the future but you need some size down the middle to compete next year, get that and you will be fine
