  1. Agree, I thought the likes of Doran and Forber should have been leading the team around the pitch. For me it was the no 14(? Dowsett) who was making the breaks at speed.
  2. At this moment in time we have 17 players signed on.Several are from the amateur scene,so we won't know if we've discovered any like Brett and Callum till the season starts.OK,irons are in the fire but none of these are signed on, so the squad is definitely too light considering when the first match is. I just can't see where we will get the extra numbers required before competetive matches start.Can't argue with being cautious but if we are to survive in this division we need a decent sized squad.Worried!
  3. The facilities were not up to the standards the Kiwi's are used to!!
  4. Well that's good to know. Cheers mate
  5. Correct me if I am wrong, but I reckon from last seasons squad we have lost: MURPHY,CARTER,HULME,SAMMUT,COWARD,MATTY,SHACKS,STACK, VERLINDEN, WALKER MCAVOY,? OLSTRUM ? BRETT P,? CALLUM P,? I don't envy Dave Clarke and the BOD having to fill these holes on a small budget! Keep the faith!!?
  6. Regarding Callum,does anybody know what his injury is? Silence reigns again at the club.
  7. You would think we were playing to end up in DIV 1
  8. Radio Cumbria will not be providing commentary from the Rec on Friday.Commentary on Monday v Leigh. TYPICAL
  9. Totally agree there. A Jamie Thackeray or Acton, somebody to take the opposition on and scatter a few bodies.Lacking in that department big time.
  10. Sitting at the bottom of the league and looking at points difference, I think it will take some getting off there.our pack was always the strong point of the side but this season every pack has dominated us.Heard again today that 4 or 5 players had hands on knees and out of puff. We've seen that in our home matches as well. Last time out at home L.McAvoy was out of puff after 10 mins.
  11. Just been informed by my brother in law Ken that his brother Jack ("Loppy") died today in intensive care at Carlisle following recent surgery for an aneurysm.He made a great partnership with Ike.RIP JACK. Condolences to all the family. Malc
  12. My old friend is a determined fighter.Keep at it Keith and you'll be ok. Best regards Malc.
  13. Totally agree with you.Whoever passed the pitch fit to play on should be banned.Those lakes didn't appear in a few hours since inspection. Same as last season start.No clue at halfback.We should have signed another half back to partner Sammut because when he isn't on the pitch we're totally rudderless.
  14. Agree there. Aimless kicks, head shots.Honestly can't understand why we signed him after last season.
  15. Well said Keith,it really is a farce now in fact its the pantomime season.If it happens that J.S. has not signed for us then we face the same scenario as the last few seasons.A half back needed and preseason started.I can't understand the clubs treatment of us long suffering die hards as regarding this signing.Come on Mr Fryer spill the beans for better or for worse!
