    Daniel I to Fev

    I am glad that Daniel I is coming back until the end of the season. His effort is great and I hope it puts some spark into the back three forwards. I always liked him as a player and so did most of the Rams fans so why the sarcasm? The fact that he left to better himself cannot be held against him even if it did not work out at that time. Cut out the sniping its beneath you.

    Players attitude :

    NK says the players can fail to do what they have practiced and what they have been told to do in a game. I believe him. Why are they doing this? I seem to remember this comment from our previous coach. Players are paid to play as the coach requires with some flair of their own. The last coach had to go, but this time that cannot happen and the none performing players must go. I will be watching games more closely in future to compile my own list.

    London Game

    Thanks TOM for your full and informative reply to some of our questions. It must have taken quite some time to complete and I for one appreciate it. Some people want to know the team well in advance of match day, and although this would be interesting, I can see the point about not wanting to give the other team too much information. Also would some fans be put off turning up to the game if they thought we were fielding a weakened team or their favourite player was missing? Just a thought but some people might think they had better things to do.

    London Game

    Do we still have the car boot sale on Sundays?. How many people attend - 1000 or so? Do we offer any incentives for people to come to the afternoon game? Do we advertise the game at the car boot? The answer is NO. Why not? Get a large poster attached to the fence at the back of the south stand facing the car boot or in a prominent position for people leaving the car boot to see. Set up a stall selling a limited number of reduced price entry tickets ( say 80 ) for people to buy. ( obviously we don't want regular fans to buy too many, hence the limited number ) Get a reduced price stall on Dewsbury market to sell reduced price shirts/clothing etc. to promote the club.Surely we can do more to promote the club in the town than we do? ( OK - I can hear you all saying ' yes, good idea but who will do it? ) Also get a MUCH larger sign at the entrance gate advertising the next game for motorists passing in both directions to see. SIMPLES.

    Dewsbury Rams v Halifax RLFC

    Its going to be a difficult day on Monday against Halifax. I went to see them play Toronto and they held the wolfpack for most of the game until the last half hour. The Halifax pack is very strong and their backs know how to attack. We will have to play our strongest team possible and everybody will have to put in a performance. ( no running across the field or trying to gain ground by running towards our own posts ) The pitch is going to be heavy and we may get well and truly stuck in the mud. Hoping some of our loan players will be available but doubt it. On a positive note, our players can perform better and I am hoping that they will. The effort is there and as others have said - just cut out the errors and we may have a chance. Final score will be ..............I have no bloody idea.

    I did not go to the match but thought that the our team was good enough to do the business. Can anybody who went tell me why we lost ? Was it heavy going on the pitch / lack of cohesion due to " fringe players as some suggest / or lack of effort ? The result was very disapointing to me - I thought we were better than that. Incidentally , there were only 4 players that I would class as fringe players or new faces so we need to improve quickly.

    Toulouse predictions and team

    So there you have it, we lost to a better team but we certainly didn' t give up. It could have been a whole lot closer, because:- 1) We lost concentration twice close to our line and gifted them 2 easy tries. 2) We allowed them to intercept a pass that was going forward anyway, and was a bit speculative, but the player making the pass made a tremendous effort to make up for it. 3) We had the opportunity to score two tries close to their line but our close quarter passing either hit the chest of the receiving player / was too hard / or was just dropped. Still some work to do to cut out the mistakes but it is gradually coming together. I was disappointed that we lost but am very hopeful going forward.

    Toulouse predictions and team

    I would like to see Trout included in the second row with Spicer, or certainly on the bench. He was a second row as we all know, but also gives options for prop. Could rest Crowthet, but I also like Reilly so what do you do? g

    Toulouse predictions and team

    It's interesting JIMBOBRAM to see that you have selected Speakman at no.6 and Knowles at no 7. Both have played at scrum half as partner to Sykes and I wonder whether any body would prefer to see them play the other way round? Actually I agree with you but Knowles is a good ball distributor and can pass accurately both ways so stand off may be better for him ? Anyway I am curious as to what NK will do. It's a good discussion point. Does anybody know whether Day can play at scrum half because he is quick around play the ball. What if NK played Day at scrum half and Brown at stand off - would it surprise you ?

    Barrow v Dewsbury

    Apparently Barrow have been able to get some practice in this week. Doubt whether we have, but someone on here may know. Hope we are not at a disadvantage before we even kick off.

    (Will It Be A) Happy New Year

    OK- I'm back with another correction. Did anybody else spot my deliberate error? Obviously we cannot play and win against ourselves. Never posted so much before and unsure whether I can get used to it. Might try again if there are enough crazy replies. Don't hold your breath though, it could be a few minutes. ???!!?!?£&

    (Will It Be A) Happy New Year

    Ok - so I need to concentrate more when posting. The obvious bone to pick is that I should have said numbers 5 to 12 and not 1 to 8. Hope nobody got to reply before I could make my correction - it may look to some poor soul that I am ..,,.&£@

    (Will It Be A) Happy New Year

    If Mr Kelly can motivate the players to a standard of which I think he is capable, then we could win all our home games against teams numbered from 1 to 8 in your tables. We could also win against one of the top 4 if we are super motivated and they are having a bad day. It's all about confidence. Have you got any or can you pick the bones out of MY VIEW? Happy new year to everybody, who agrees with me !??!£&?!!

    2018 Squad confirmed

    Zack ??? Johnson only went to Shaw Cross after not getting in the team last season, although he told me at Batley that he was match fit. Might be worth keeping an eye on how he is doing and if he is showing some form, then he MAY be willing to give it another go with Rams

    Forward passes.

    Your absolutely right NICKD on forward passes. I was watching the opening game and was convinced the Ausies first try came from a blatant forward pass. I was waiting for the replay but they were careful not to take it that far back in the play. ( think it was the first try ) It didn't improve much after that and all the games including teams from down under have had some forward passes with very few noticed by the officials. I think England have noticed this however and may be close to trying some themselves. On another issue, I know that Bateman has been playing well, but sometimes his attacking play has lacked the skill of an established centre. Why do we always play at least one person out of position? Remember Sinfield at stand off? Hope we can win the final but as usual I am doubtful against the Ausies
