  1. The effort from the lads was there yesterday but over the course of the 80 mins they were just too good for us. Thackeray is a superb player. Every time I watch him he just oozes class. Good pack, very good backs , excellent half backs and a super bench and they demonstrated why they are a very good team. For ourselves some players were absolutely outstanding. Adamson again was brilliant at loose and then second row when Langers went off. Tyson was great again and off the bench Wardy and Adebisi in particular were super. Poor Nieldy had a shocker at full back and was continually found out by Thackeray's kicking game. We just don't pose enough threat with the ball in the oppositon 20. We go forward great against pretty much anybody but just can't break the top teams down when we get to their line. Huge game next week against Sheffield and hopefully Langers is ok with a couple of the injured brigade fit to play as well.

  4. Immense defensive performance today. Everybody put their bodies on the line for the whole 80 mins and we thoroughly deserved the two points. Everyone contributed but I thought three players in particular were outstanding. Adamson moving to loose forward and Thompson shifting to left back row were outstanding. Thompson in defence and Adamson was involved in everything down the middle. Tyson was superb as well. Scored the vital try but his defence was absolutely superb whilst playing through the pain barrier. New lads all contributed. Wilkinson looked smart at dummy half and made a really nice break at the start of the second half. Smith was excellent at prop as was Adebisi especially in the last 15 mins. Hope Langers and Neal came off as precautions as we desperately need them next week in another huge game.

  6. Such a frustrating game and season. We are so close to winning games like this and every game we find a way to lose. First half was pretty even but we didn't take our chances with Clay dropping the ball over the line and Turner being judged to have been held up. Fax took their chances and deserved to be in front. Second half we were on top and clawed it back to 12-12. If Scotty scores under the sticks we probably win the game but it wasn't to be. Even so though we didn't have to back that up with errors and missed tackles. The game was still there for us even at 18-12 behind but their heads and dropped and Fax took advantage and blew the score out. Tyson was outstanding. The last few weeks we've started to get the ball more out on the right hand side and Langers and Tyson are both looking very threatening. Langers had another excellent game but had the crucial miss on Grady that gave them the lead. Turner was excellent again at full back. Hewitt had another poor game, poor kicking in the first half when we were in good positions and then in the second terrible passing and tackling. Kenny also had a shocker at dummy half with 5 errors I think.
  7. It's not just the carries that are up but the amount of times they engaged the line which was apparent at the game. This gives the edges more space to work and why we looked more cohesive getting the ball out wide. It was obvious from the first set of the game they had been working on in training, maybe having a different voice in the dressing room had an impact.

  9. Leatherbarrow and Hewitt played the same positions they've played all year. They just played a lot better than they have been doing. Outstanding effort today and I think another game we'll look back and think if only. If we had kept them to just the Lunt try before half time I think we had them but to allow then another two quick tries edged the game in their favour. A couple of their tries in the second half were just outstanding with nothing we could do but the Turner error in trying to prevent a 40/20 was very costly. All the lads played well today but i thought in particular Langtree and Leatherbarrow were superb. Leatherbarrow from the very first set took the line on and continuously did for the whole game and we were a threat down that right side all game. Hewitt did a similar job but perhaps not to quite the standard as Scott. Langers had another stormer and could have easily had a couple of tries. Nice to see the dual regs come in and have an impact. Dickinson always plays well for us and I actually think we've missed him a lot more than we thought. Wood was steady at centre whilst McIntosh looked really good on the wing. Adamson looks a really good signing. Hits hard in defence and makes plenty of yards with the ball. Think with him, Langers and the in form Spencer our back row looks sorted. Burke had his best game of the year. Clay continued his magnificent form. Huge game next week. Big win for Fax today but we must play with same spirit and intensity and the points will come. Come on Oldham

  11. What a load of rubbish. Roosters were minor Premiers three years on the trot in the NRL and were the most penalised side in the comp every year. I thought the ref was shocking against us on Saturday but when you play so poorly it doesn't matter because we didn't deserve any better.

  13. I think Scott will be devastated at some of our performances recently but he doesn't seem the type of man to just walk away mid season. Will be absolutely gutted if he does though. I think it would be easier for a coach if we weren't any good but still gave everything we've got. At the minute we are dominating games putting ourselves in complete control and then not just letting the other team back in but capitulating embarrassingly. And then in other games, especially away, we dont even turn up from the start. Think its time for the players to stand up. Every week the same 8 or 9 give everything they have but at this standard you need all 17 pulling in the same direction. We've shown this year when they all dig in we are a good team. Think its time we binned dual reg, only Oldham players from now on. We haven't had any real consistent quality from Huddersfield for nearly two years now. Also think CH needs to back Scott with some new players. Adamson is a good start and we've signed another prop on loan but we need more. We cant go on with Owen at scrum half and with Gee likely to be getting a ban we need another hooker desperately.
  14. Can't believe how bad we were yesterday. Game was there to be won as well at 10-0 and 22-10. Defence on our own line was appalling, every try in the first half was a short crash ball that should have defended. Second half we were completely dominated and deserved to get battered. Clay, Lippy and Egodo were superb. The rest were either poor or terrible. I dont understand why the lack of intensity has started creeping into our game. For 4 years even when we've been beaten its by a better team and we've tackled our hearts out. 4 or 5 times this year there has been a worrying lack on aggression and poor attitude and its becoming far to regular for my liking. Captain has to be changed. Owen is not a captain and shouldn't even be in the team never mind its leader. With Joy out we are desperate for another prop. If Grimshaw isn't going to be used at half back we need a scrum half. With Owen and Hughes's poor form i'd also be looking for another hooker. Yesterday was a massive opportunity and we blew it.
  15. Anyone who wants rid of Naylor is an absolute plonker. Done a magnificent job for us for nearly 5 years.
