#3173557 Raiders v bears

Posted by morty on 09 August 2015 - 09:29 PM

ive tried to defend the injury hit squad to the hilt over the last few weeks but last night we were on the whole awful .... some serious thinking to be done im afraid!!!!

Looks like we will be finishing 6th unless a MASSIVE improvement occurs.

#3171621 There was a game at CP yesterday!

Posted by morty on 05 August 2015 - 10:03 PM

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.

#3160487 Big Game tonight

Posted by morty on 19 July 2015 - 10:22 AM

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.

#3145266 Were Gloucester good or were we bad ?

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!!

so pleasing in such circumstances that the fund set up for Dannys family has already topped 50k ... RL community coming together is great to see.

A few SL players are shaving their beards and heads for sponsorship.

Hope we can also dig deep on Saturday as I believe there will be a collection at the game !!!

#3100393 Newcastle Thunder v Raiders

Posted by morty on 04 April 2015 - 10:19 AM

Jesus I cant believe the people on here knocking Thunder for trying to get people thro the turnstiles. Well done to Thunder for the victory and the attendance.

I think Thunder and the Raiders could be right up there at the end of the season !!

#3093660 Raiders v Halifax

Posted by morty on 23 March 2015 - 12:03 PM

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???

#3089795 Well done, Oldham!

Posted by morty on 16 March 2015 - 12:53 PM

well done Oldham ... far and away the better side for 3/4 of the game. Good luck in the semi

#3057282 V Whitehaven 18/1/15

Posted by morty on 18 January 2015 - 10:29 PM

Cresta will be more pleased than Dave Woods at their teams performances.

Think you mean Steve Deakin mate ... Woodsy got the chop at the end of last season!!

#3057220 V Whitehaven 18/1/15

Posted by morty on 18 January 2015 - 08:35 PM

absolutely brilliant performance ... the defence was superb. Its going to take a good side to beat us on our own patch on that performance!!


Haven are in for a long season on that performance!!



#3045829 Raiders sign 4 on loans

Posted by morty on 16 December 2014 - 09:56 AM

I would rather we stay in Champ 1 to try to consolidate our financial position than go straight back up and be cannon fodder because we cant afford a side capable of competing in the Championship.
