  1. Law cup week 😁

    Very encouraging start to the season. Reid will get the plaudits and deservedly so but there was plenty of excellent performances from the new lads. Bridge looks absolute class and set up the Reid try. Crook kicked out of hand very well. Nelmes looked quality of the bench, had plenty of tough carries and made plenty of metres. Eccleston had a poor error which they scored from but had plenty of good carries. Johnson started well at full back but looked to take a knock and came off pretty early. Rasool had a few good tackles but didn't see too much ball. Holmes was similar making plenty of tackles at centre. From our other players Neild had a good game at full back. Hewitt played a lot better until he took a knock which then led to his error for the Adamson try. All the forwards worked pretty har.
  2. Law cup week 😁

    who do we reckon will be full back for this game? Nield would be the steady and safe option with Ecclestone and Johnson on the wings seems the obvious option. Pack seems to pick itself at the minute but looking forward to seeing how Jones and Nelmes get on
  3. 2018 Squad and signings.

    Pack looks absolutely outstanding at the minute. Joy, Hughes,Neal, Bridge, Langtree, Spencer as the starting pack and reserves of Nelmes,Wilkinson/Owen, Davies, Briscoe, Jones and Bent is superb. That's a better pack than last year in the Championship. In the backs we definitely need a couple more. Ideally a top full back and then another utility like Holmes who can fill in at multiple positions hopefully in the halves as well. Delighted so far with the squad

    Gutted. Been class for us for 5 years. Outstanding in defence and underrated with ball in hand and we always played better with Thommo in the team.

    Delighted with this. Scott has been one of the best coaches we've had with the new club and to end on relegation would have been a bitter finale. This has been a great week so far. I really thought after we got relegated we'd have a new unproven coach and a vastly altered squad setting us back to 2013 when Scott first arrived.
  6. 2018 Squad and signings.

    Absolutely outstanding news. Over the last five years Langers has been our best player and a lot of championship clubs would have been looking at him. Delighted with the signings so far as i thought both Neal and Danny would have stayed in the championship. If we can keep the majority of the players there's no reason why we cant go for promotion

    Superb news
  8. 2018 Squad and signings.

    I wasn't a big fan of Tyson during his first spell at the club and felt he was a bit overrated because he was a bit of a cult hero. However this year he has been fantastic all year really aside from the suspensions. Even on one leg he was superb at the end of the season. Dont think he's ready for super league but with another year in the championship he wouldn't be far away. For the rest of the squad they'd have to be crazy not to stay in the championship if they have an offer. We've been very fortunate to keep the likes of wardy and Langers for the last 5+ years and you cant blame them for moving on if the end up doing so.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
