#3123161 Ladbrokes Challenge Cup: Dewsbury 10 Warrington 52

Why coach Morrison doesn't pick Farrell, but continues to pick a useless, bone idol Karl Pryce is well and truly beyond me.
Maybe he needs new glasses.

Farrell does not play centre or full back.

#3121813 Kingstone Press Championship: Dewsbury 28 Leigh 32

Posted by Wakefield Ram on 12 May 2015 - 06:21 PM

You need to start attending our games guys, before I explain I would just like to say that I myself am getting a bit frustrated with our team giving the verbals, some of our discipline has been poor on that front and most of it needless and niggly but none of us know what the players are saying to each other on the pitch.


What I will say is that both times I have been within a few feet of the "brawls" that have ensued down at the LSV and both times they were started by the opposition.


Danny Williams (Bradford) threw a hay-maker at Gregg McNally in front of all the officials and it went off, and on Sunday Cahalane the Aussie for Halifax was trying to re-arrange Haggerty's face on the deck when we had possession and Haggerty lashed out, funnily enough both of these occurred when Bradford & Halifax fell behind on the scoreboard (go figure).


Every team that has come to the LSV and tried to play rugby on the fantastic pitch has been beaten convincingly, every team that comes and tries to slow it down, get niggly and make a fight of it has succeeded and the score has been tighter.


I saw no discipline issues when we beat Super League opposition (apart from funnily enough the opposition-Patterson's attack to McNally's head................again)


I wonder what tactics Dewsbury will use at the LSV?


Think it is a little disingenuous to blame the opposition all the time. In the opening minutes v Dewsbury, Higson put in a high tackle, luckily missed Hyde with another high shot and put another cheap shot third man in in the second half and he had barely been involved in the game, so no-one was provoking him. Likewise Acton, late hit on Thackery, followed through on our winger after he had scored, neither of these were Leigh players provoked. And Barlow wasn't provoked when he gave Beckett plenty of afters in the tackle and then got binned for dissent. It's not all the Leigh players but if you look on the RFL Disciplinary they make regular appearances.


And yes Leigh are a very good full-time team in a basically part-time League.

#3112926 Kingstone Press Championship: London v Dewsbury

Only watched the highlights but Brett Seymour looks like he could be a great signing. Great long passes gave a lot more width and took the pressure off Thackeray. And from the highlights looked enthusiastic on defence and organising plays. If he played well the other 64 minutes, then very impressed.

#3108680 Local star James Delany, over once super league hooker Matty Wilde?

Ryan Wright is a very good hooker, enthusiastic defender and runs well from acting half.

#3101725 Roger the Ram at the Coal Race

Posted by Wakefield Ram on 06 April 2015 - 06:16 PM

Roger the Ram was up at the Coal Race at Gawthorpe for a good couple of hours today promoting the club before going down to the match.

And a personal thank you to him from me as he livened up the crowd as I struggled in last in the Veterans race. Roger walked alongside and the crowd gave a lot of encouragement. He told me he always supports the last runner. And posed for photo with me as well.

Great bloke is Roger.

#3101719 Kingstone Press Championship: Dewsbury 16 Bradford 30

Posted by Wakefield Ram on 06 April 2015 - 06:09 PM

Pryce was clearly injured in the first half, he made no errors other than missing a spiralling kick in the first half.

A good performance from the Rams, great effort, few squandered chances in good positions, thought our kicking near the line could have been better. But defence was pretty good and against a FT team on a hot day, they did well especially playing a man short for 10 minutes. Haggerty's form seems to be getting worse rather than better.

#3095114 confusing info

Posted by Wakefield Ram on 25 March 2015 - 09:09 PM

I would expect the taxable attendance would be based on financial gate receipts given the are different admission prices for adults and concessions.

So the club has considered a SL offer and have decided against. That's their prerogative, MS has put a large amount of money into the club, if he doesn't want to offer subsidised admission to SL fans then that's up to him.

#3090017 Halifax 26 Dewsbury 13 - discussion, report, highlights

One thing that is noticeable is how we let opposing teams play the ball much quicker than they let us.

Widening the pitch would effectively mean knocking down a stand and re-building it a few yards back. I like the pitch as it is, makes for intense games.

Posted by Wakefield Ram on 13 February 2015 - 10:38 PM

Really tough game and we'll one to the Rams for breaking the hoodoo.

Thought the work rate of all the forwards was outstanding tonight,

Great to get off to a winning start.

We shouldn't r switch the gMe as Leigh are full time and we are part time. Our players would be playing off the back of a day at work so would have even less chance of winning.

#3048651 The new shirts, polo shirts and training vests have arrived at the club!

#3035248 Ref attacked in amateur rugby league game

Posted by Wakefield Ram on 19 November 2014 - 11:19 PM

Some right jokers here. Im not condoning the young hot heads actions nor stating the officials job is an easy one.
Touch lines are far more stringent now esp in the junior game.
Refs need to have thick skin but the fragile ones will always have their feelings hurt. Cant take the heat get out of the kitchen. Try chess

Take it you have never reffed then. You should try reffing, I played 20 odd years, keep pretty fit but reffing is full on. And watched by two groups of of spectators who seem to think that for no apparent reason I want their team to lose. Or rather use me as an excuse if they lose, but no one ever thanks me for helping them win.

#3030391 What a great tournament !

Posted by Wakefield Ram on 09 November 2014 - 08:26 PM

To be honest I was dreading this tournament, thought it would start with Aussies trouncing NZ and Samoa being easybeats there just to make up the numbers. Delighted to have been proved completely wrong and have watched every game, it's been fantastic. Hope NZ beat the Aussies in the final but got a nasty feeling that the Aussies are coming good.

But a great tournament.
