In Topic: Scorpions claim first win in tough battle

Most has already been said on Twitter but well done yesterday. We were awful but you were organised and disciplined in the second half partucularly and deserved winners. It was great, despite the result, to witness the celebrations at the end!

Barrow v Newcastle wasn't a great game. Lots of penalties (don't know the numbers, but it felt like Newcastle must have conceded at least 20), lots of knock-ons. Seemed like very few sets made it to the 6th tackle and the referee was constantly involved.

 

This seems to  be a real feature of L1 - do you think it is down to the refs or the ability of players at this level. The ref blew his whistle every minute for large spells of the second half yesterday at London. In contrast the linesmen did nothing even when they were in front of blatent errors like steals that weren't.

Well I can certainly see why Skolars and South Wales are holding the league up. They were poor but we were dire, particularly in second half. Appalling errors (not even under pressure half the time), no organisation for periods, no leadership (despite the coach playing) and too many players looked tired. Frankly the sooner this season is over the better - another team would have put 50 against us today. Strange as we were pretty good last week. The only plus was 304 there today.

Actually although it was against us I was kindof pleased a little bit that South Wales won - meant a lot to them.

PS - As the Skolars were also at home today, I take it you have seen the light and decided to barrack for the London club. The mighty Broncos ;)

 

You wish! Supporting my local team in a cracking game. Would have come to the Hive though if the RFL had not managed to organise both London teams at home today. Know you need all the support you can get... ;)
