  1. First half was absolutely terrible. Dewsbury ran hard and created plenty of quick play the balls but aside from Tyson it looked like no one wanted to make a tackle. Fully deserved to be losing by 18 at half time. We really need to sort our attitude out at away games. As soon as we concede a try their heads all drop and we stop playing with any intensity. We got away with it today. Second half we controlled right from the beginning and played like we should have from the start of the game. Wardy, Gee and Tyson were great. I've never seen a try like Wardy's in the second half. He's held up over the line and then a Dewsbury player decides to drag him towards the in goal but also drags him down to the try line. Poor Dave Hewitt had another absolute shocker. Needs a few weeks off i think. Get Grimshaw at stand off and Scott at scrum half. Gee has to start at hooker.

  3. Leatherbarrow has been very good this year. He has 6 on his back but plays scrum half and controls the team very well. I know Owen or Gee are the captain but Scott plays like the captain to me. Hewitt has been disappointing especially as he started the season really well. Seems to be down on confidence and just wont take the line on. He's got pace to burn and has scored some cracking tries for us but at the minute its just not happening. I'd definitely give Grimmer a go at stand off. It's his natural position and whilst it might improve our attack it could also help our defence as we know how good his tackling is. I think hooker is just as important a position for us to solve. Gee is playing really well but not playing big minutes. Hughes is making tonnes of tackles but not having the impact he has last year when he won player of the year. Owen's form has been dreadful and has been deservedly dropped.

  8. What a game. Fully deserved to win today with everybody contributing. Spencer was absolutely outstanding at loose today as were Lippy and Clay returning the ball. Langers also looked back to his best scoring tries and breaking tackles. Grimshaw's defence was again immense at centre. That try and celebration is right up there for me with last years Whitehaven game, Ground almost exploded when Gilly grounded the ball. If we can get a thousand under those sticks we won't lose many games, get down to the Fold and watch some quality rugby. Some huge calls from Scott that he got spot on today. Dropping your captain is a massive decision but it was the right one and Sammy had a quality game taking us forward from dummy half. Gilly moving to centre and Egodo to wing worked almost perfectly. Both had cracking games, especially Egodo who looked much more comfortable on the wing.
  9. Was this the Dylan Walker incident? If so the linesman(Roby) says he's lost the ball in the tackle not in touch.
  10. I reckon that's the worst we've played under Naylor in four years. First half was horrendous. We played with no aggression what so ever and rightly got battered. Clay was excellent but the rest were either poor and anonymous. Batley were excellent in defence at the start whilst we had the ball and then as soon as they got it scored a cracking try and never looked back. Cut us to ribbons at times out wide especially down the left with Smeaton destroying Egodo.

  12. Turner, Clay, Egodo, Gill/Grimshaw, Lippy, leatherbarrow, Hewitt, Davies, Hughes, Neal, Tyson, Langtree, Spencer. subs: Owen, Thompson, Ward, Burke. Owen has to be dropped for Hughes, got no form what so ever this year and playing around 20 mins a game as captain in untenable. Got to give the captaincy to Leatherbarrow, clear leader on the pitch,plays 80 mins and has been class all season. Can't pick between Gilly or Grimshaw at centre, both very good players. In the bigger games I can see Tyson and Grimshaw at centre for that toughness but at home i'd like to be a bit more attacking. Turner is one of the best full backs in the league, no chance is he moving to the wing. Lippy was excellent on the wing against Rochdale and will be good there for the rest of the season. I think with Joy out we are still desperate for another prop even with Davies and Wardy's excellent form and i'd like another hooker(Foster?) to put pressure on Owen and Hughes as hooker has gone from being one of the strongest elements to our game to our weakest by quite a distance.

  14. Gutted. We really have to stop throwing away points as it might cost us as the season goes on. Average first half where we had the territory but lacked invention and then Crowley scores and sets up another and it looks like a bad first half. We were dominant in the second half scoring twenty unanswered points but again switched off and conceding two extremely soft tries under the sticks. Individually I thought Tyson and especially Ben Davies were outstanding. lippy looked like he'd never been away and Walne and Neal played well at prop until Walne went off injured. I'm not to sure about some of Scott's decisions on team selection. Playing three hookers has always been his preferred style and we started like that last year but you can't get away with it in the Championship and we quickly went away from that system. Seems to have crept back in this year for some reason and its costing us. Walne going off meant Wardy had to play 60 mins straight. Davies and Neal both played huge stints and looked knackered at the end. Thommo went off near the end playing through the pain barrier with his back.Why wasn't Spencer picked, he was probably our best player against Hull KR and has consistently played well and can cover prop, second row and loose.
