wow harsh words there Odin and JCD... I think that's a little unfair to be honest.
Given we are cash strapped I think we are doing ok. Its not the best team we have ever had but look what happened the last time we bought a great squad ... it put us on our uppers and its why we are in the mess the BOD are trying to get us out from.
We were just outplayed and out enthused simple as, Crusaders defence knew our attacking gameplans and had cover there all the time.....we have a threadbare squad and some players are playing with knocks which doesn't help.
I thought the Leigh lads played well last night ???
Hewer was simply awful ..... let the game get away from him and lost control but I don't expect anything else from him to be honest but he wasn't the reason we got turned over last night.
Onward and upward !! If we make the play offs I will be very happy.
Josh is a young lad and his kicking will only improve ... theres a hell of a lot of pressure on the kicker as in a tight game a kick either way is all that may be in it. Confidence is a big thing as well...if you miss your 1st 3 kicks in a game the pressure to kick the next builds etc.
I think we are a good side and on our day we can beat anyone in this league home or away BUT we are a long way off Championship standard yet. We need time to build this young side into a one that can go up and stay up and not get hammered the way the lower sides in the championship are against the Leighs and Bradfords!!
No disgrace at all yesterday thought the lads showed what they are made of in the 2nd half especially. To say Fax took their foot off the gas isn't a true reflection.....we got into their faces more which plugged the gaps the likes of Kaye and Murrell were able to capitalise on in the 1st half!!
There were a few comments from the crowd which were disrespectful to our players and whoever said them should be ashamed of themselves.
One thing it did prove is that we are not ready to step back into the Championship yet and like Cresta has already said its a work in progress and a longer term development program to get us ready and not be cannon fodder for the likes of the full time squads in the league above.
Hopefully we will be a match for any Champ 1 team at home!!! Lets see what happens away from CP as the season progresses???
