#3000061 YCK 12 - 31 Oldham

Posted by oldrover on 21 September 2014 - 06:03 PM

Totally outplayed today in all departments by a very strong Oldham side, well done Oldham you deserved it completely form the first kick. Not sure why but knights didn't look fit today, they were blowing hard 15mins into the game and appeared to struggle to get back on side when we were returning kicks.

Still not over and remember last time Oldham beat us in a semi-final, small matter of beating Hawks next week who will be coming full of confidence after smashing Thunder for 50.

C'mon lads show us what you can do next week.

P.s. Ryan backhouse has to be in the 17 next week!

have to agree about Ryan, player of the week for champ 1 not long ago. was he injured?Oldham came with a gameplan to slow the ruck down and i thought the ref was very lenient on this, but their linespeed was great.. i have to say, i've never been a fan of forwards taking the ball standing still. also never been a fan of forwards at acting half. lastly halfbacks need to look at their decision making. all my opinion of course.

can't wait for George Stokes to get to "laying on" and "offside", in his rule book, then we may see a decent game from him.

need to be focused, previous results count for nothing. need to counter their big pack. get it wide early and a good kicking game. make them bring it away from their own tryline.imo of course

regardless of how the playoffs go, can i just say what a pleasure it's been watching York City Knights this season.it has meant me missing a lot of fev games, but the entertainment has been great. my hope now, is that both teams reach their grand finals

#2980897 heads screwed on

Posted by oldrover on 21 August 2014 - 10:47 AM

i don't like the way a lot of people are talking as if second place is ours after beating fax. i hope AH is keeping the squads mind on the job. 2 tricky fixtures coming up.

#2980869 Hunslet away Sunday

Posted by oldrover on 21 August 2014 - 09:49 AM

really pleased for Ryan Backhouse. strong runner, still got a bit of pace from his days in the centre. nice lad too. as a fev fan, i was sorry to see Colton Roache being released without being given a chance. fevs loss is yorks gain.

#2979970 professional

be professional. take nothing for granted. keep your heads screwed on and get the win against Skolars. 10 in a row, make history lads.

#2978828 Hunslet away Sunday

Posted by oldrover on 17 August 2014 - 04:16 PM

it's an 80 minute game as they say, well done York

#2977682 Hunslet at it again

Posted by oldrover on 15 August 2014 - 01:15 PM

I,ll swear when York played us at home earlier in the season they had a centre who won them the match, who was the spittin image of Jake Webster...

that's correct, and they were pressured by castleford to play him.

#2977561 promotion and relegation

Posted by oldrover on 15 August 2014 - 09:37 AM

i think it's great that p&r have been reintroduced, but, i have been watching champ 1 quite a lot this season, and as the playoffs approach there are indications of panic at some clubs. when York played Gateshead last week, gateshead included  3 superleague players from Hull kr on dual reg. 3 players that played for Hull kr last sunday played for kr against wigan last night. this sunday sees what is probably a title decider between Hunslet and York. Hunslet have signed 3 players on this week for their promotion push. as things stand, as long as they remain under the cap, they are well within their rights. i just hope this does not spiral out of control where cubs feel the need to overspend to compete.in the playoffs. will the rfl be monitoring the situation.?
