  1. I 100% agree with you Buford that's it's incredibly frustrating that after two very tough years under Kear we have a great season last time out and get ahead of the game, so to speak, with a very good squad. Only to look like we're slipping back. Also, Diskin might find he needs to adapt his approach to be successful at this level. I certainly don't think he's blameless.
  2. Highlights?!? If you can call them that or a chance to see those missed tackles for the amateur video analysts. It's not pleasant viewing.
  3. One of my pet peeves on here is people starting a new thread is when there is no need, couldn't you've added this to the 'taxi for diskin' thread? It's all part of the same conversation, surely.
  4. I disagree. I think it's far too soon to even suggest it. Also, some of the abuse he got yesterday was out of order. Some supporters were very critical of John Kear for much of his tenure, pointing to dour rugby and rigid one dimensional tactics. Some of the same people are now arguing the opposite with Diskin, hankering for more structure and organisation. He's obviously trying to put in place his own brand of rugby and needs time (and support) to do so. The one thing Diskin doesn't have is Kear's vast experience. It's yet to be proved if he can turn this around.

  6. Turn the sound up on the video, you can quite clearly hear the officials say 'back to one' as the Rochdale player palms the ball down.
  7. If that felt like a defeat to you you're probably watching the wrong game. Everyone was bouncing, give your head a wobble.
  8. Maybe try reading the previous posts..... "Joel Farrell is waiting for the results of a scan on his knee, Alistair Leak has picked up a knock to the leg, Danny Cowley has a cut above the eye and Sam Smeaton is also carrying a knock that could see him ruled out of Sunday’s game." ;)
  9. Billy, why not get you grandson a free junior season ticket (if young enough), he'd get away tickets free.
  10. It was forward.
  11. Great post by someone who obviously watched the game.
  12. Be fair. Your player 'tapped' a pass down on your line and the ref gave the knock on against Batley.
  13. Obviously we'd all like a bumper draw at home, Leeds. If we don't get them I'd like somewhere nice for a day out, like York or Dewsbury.
  14. Could you not put this in the 'Batley vs Toulouse' thread? Can't we just have one thread for each match? There about six for the Bulls game last week.
