On paper today's result looks poor but against a team that may well go on and win the league there were plenty of positives to take from the game. It looks like a hammering but there were a number of factors to consider.
1- lot of missing players. Whilst we cannot guarantee getting them all fit at the same time there are a lot of big players to come in (Littler, Nanyn, Gallagher, Hurst, Hawkyard, Ian Morrison and not forgetting mike Morrison.
2 - I believe, though could be wrong, we only had the 4 subs ... Unlike Cru who seemed to have endless fresh legs (8 subs used)
3 - goal kicking, 8 from 8 from Cru certainly mounts up the score and we need to address this in the season with our 1 from 3.
4 - until the last 20 mins, at 14 - 24 we had made a game of it. Then subs 24, 25, 26 and 27 took control and ran riot.
5. Players out of position ..Ackers not at hooker, short of props and centres.
Other positives, better handling than Cru and Andy Ackers back on the pitch (at loose forward though...?)
Not so sure....too easy to just crash over for the first 4 Cru tries and two kick off receiver mistakes.....again.
