  1. Discipline will be paramount today and I'm sure the players are aware of that. Let's get over there in numbers and get behind the lads.
  2. Ok thanks
  3. Does anyone know what's happened with the signing from Rochdale Hornets. He doesn't appear to have been in the squad so far?
  4. On a blistering hot afternoon that even the spectators found steamy, in spite of the shade of the stands, we saw two teams run their blood to water and we saw a far better game than we deserved given the conditions. Only our superb defence near our own line kept us in the game throughout and the players did that job manfully especially in the first half were we had to defend repeat sets on several occasions. Our try just before halftime brought us back to within two points of the Bulls. The second half was a nailbiter and tempers flared in the heat of the afternoon. Hornets manfully stuck to the task and scored sixteen unanswered points to take the game away from the Bulls but the result was not assured until our final try in the last ten minutes or so.make Make no mistake Hornets had to work really hard for this welcome victory and let's hope they realise that it's no cake walk in this division but I feel sure that on this performance they will stay in the championship. We are all so proud that a part time team on a low budget can triumph over adversity! As for the referee he made mistakes for both teams but I feel the touchies could have helped him more. Memo to ground staff, the pitch looked immaculate but why do you get the sprinklers operating at half time on a lush surface only to make the pitch greasy for the players who were slipping and sliding in the second half. Could the task not be left until after the game.
  5. He is an excellent signing and I for one was sad to see him leave so welcome back.
  6. Would like to see Stuart Biscombe back at the club, he was very much a bustling forward when used at the right time in a game. He's playing regularly with Oxford this season.
  7. Hope we can get the same following as our game at Leigh Village against the same opposition in the memorable final.
  8. I'm sure we are wholly united in wishing our former favourite John Cookson (Cooky) our best wishes for a speedy recovery after his recent heart attack and our thoughts also are with his family.
  9. Thank you, that's very informative. 👍
  10. As a Hornets supporter who hasnt been to your ground, how is it placed for parking with it being a bank holiday. Thanks for any help.
  11. Fordy must be one of the tallest number six in the game, a very good player with ball in hand all the same.
  12. Yes the best team certainly won easily, Toulouse were faster than us in both attack and defence. They were playing the game at super league tempo and scored some wonderful tries. I thought that they actually looked a far better team than even Hull K R No complaints about the referees performance either. We must try to get out of the current slump and I still feel that with a healthy squad we are more than capable of doing so.
  13. Another huge game for us again this weekend and there's plenty of recent history between both teams, I was going to say a lot of BITE about this fixture but we don't want to include Bastien Ader in that of course.😡 Its really important that we keep our discipline and get up in their faces for the full eighty minutes whilst also playing the type of rugby league that our squad are capable of I would suggest that having a Phil Bentham officiating also gives us some idea about this fixture. Lets hope we have a big and vocal crowd for the game.
  14. Where can you park near the ground Spanishknight ??
  15. Yes discipline is a must as some of our players are former Oldham players so let's hope we can keep our heads as it's certain they will be intimidated. A true pro can and should rise above all that. lets also hope that the people of Rochdale turn up in numbers, the team deserves nothing less.
