    How accurate was the attendance count, the turnstile I went through seemed dodgy - it seemed to stick between me and the person who went through in front of me.

    Round 1 — Workington Town

    The 10 minute spell in the first half when you pulled back to 12-12 was brilliant rugby where by Town found it hard to stop your slick passing moves and off loads culminating in the try of the match from your full back. Reproduce that for a large % of the game and you will take some beating. I thought Town finished the stronger team. All the best for the future apart from at DP.

    First ten mins town were on fire and scored 2 rapid tries and were controlling the game - we then lost possession that started a 10 min spell where Oldham controlled the game with some slick off load rugby, 12 - 12. The last 60 mins was nip & tuck all the way with neither side getting on top. Two sides of contrasting styles - Town had the power - Oldham were quicker around the ruck trying to shift the ball out wide. My impression of the last play was Town give away a needless penalty, Oldham kicked the ball into touch & from the last play put up a towering bomb that appeared to be covered by two town players - an Oldham player appeared from nowhere & out jumped them both & touched down, looked a fantastic effort. I might be wrong but I thought the ref initially give the try so the off side was called from the touch judge. Great effort by the lads on a bone hard plastic pitch. UTT

    DthRR how do you know the sports centre is subsidised, appears to be well used, in addition it is managed and run has a business by a Company who also run the Sands Centre in Carlisle.

    Totally agree Carl Forber is like a vintage wine & gets better with age, very impressed with how he took on the line & his kicking was impressive today.

    I think I was watching a different game, Karl Olstrum was awesome today when he came on and seemed to be everywhere and was involved in most of our attacks, he made breaks from dummy half, off loaded on numerous occasions & his passing game (not always his best feature) was more than satisfactory.

    2019 signings

    Why live in the past, Brett has moved on and so have we - Town have in my opinion a better second rower in Gordon Maudling who will break tackles and score tries for fun this coming season.

    The best locals seem to be playing for the likes of Wath Brow, Kells & Egremont & for some reason won't sign semi professional. Surely these are the players we should be perusing if we go local. Why has the local talent dried up north of Distington or am I wrong in my observations?

    Let's face it the majority of players staying at the club are wanted by the BOD and coach; provisions have to be made for bringing in new blood to try & improve on last season - all of this depends upon the limited budget & the number of sponsors that the club can attract.

    And on top if that we lost Olstrum for a large part of the game. Absolute heroes every single one of them. After listening to the good coverage on RC Dawson and the Mellor appeared to have had immense games.

    The way the RFL is run has nothing to do with Super League, it's the RFL that needs to change, that can only be initiated by the Championship clubs from within. Passed the Travellers this morning and saw the Townies boarding their bus, absolute dedication hope their journey is worthwhile and Town win against the odds.

    Squad for Bradford

    What a mess, tell you what this is a game that nobody wants so why not get a rep from each club to go on the pitch at Old Trafford before the grand final and spin a coin to decide who plays in the Championship next season. Better still have a 'it's a knockout' competition at half time where perhaps supporters could slug it out, this will allow the players to go on holiday. P.S. this post should be not taken seriously just like the RFL.

    TS, I assume you are a hornets supporter - so you would feel the same if your team finished bottom of the championship.

    Would the game be a joke if Oldham were playing in it.
