    Incentive to win?

    After the disappointing loss to an average Batley team, I can now see the possibility of us finishing in 6th position in the Shield play offs behind both Sheffield and Barrow. It may now be necessary to offer the match day squads an incentive to finish either 3rd or 4th according to their inclusion in the squad over the time of the play offs. If it is correct that there is a £25000 difference between positions 3,4 and 5,6 then this could be the source of some incentive. Obviously for finishing in 5,6 position there would be nothing offered as this is already quite likely. If however we were to finish in either 3rd or 4th position, then say £12500 could be taken by the club and £12500 for allocation to the players. For the club, £12500 is less than the £25000 difference which cannot be guaranteed, but is better than nothing which is likely. All of this is irrelevant of course if an incentive is already in place.

    Good to know BSJ that an interesting 17 were announced to play in Tolouse, but as I am not facecrap or twiddled literate, I did not know what it was. Please do share your knowledge.. Also, how the ::elf do I insert your above post about this subject in this post. It's so blasted frustrating with no school regect to show me. and it's now 00:49 and the twitterers are all asleep on their branches. Must have been on with this post for hours. YAWN YAWN and so to bed at 00:56.

    Gareth Moore

    So it's looking more and more that he really did have a foot injury if he needs injections to play. Time to give him the benefit of the doubt and get behind him. After all we don't want to offend him if he is willing to play and we need him.

    Didn't go to the Swinton game but it seems from the bare facts that we lost on goal kicks. For a recognised goal kicker to have a conversion rate of 33% or less, is worrying. It would be interesting to know the conversion rate for the whole season if anybody has it, and whether it has fallen as the season as progressed. If Glover is having a difficult time scoring tries then he might have more success kicking goals. Give him the chance. Hallett could also be given a chance in the second row after some coaching. After all he has the physique and is possible fast enough for this position. His defence would have to improve though.!

    Nothing but respect....................

    Think it's a bit unusual to say there is a NK love in. The fact is that we all realise he has a difficult job to do with a restricted budget and unavailability of players due to injury. Also let down by some dual reg / loan players not being available at critical times. Badly let down also by Gaz Moore due to some kind of problem. Wish we could sort this out and get him back for the play offs. The players are trying hard but we do need a pack leader who can distribute the ball. The pack play as individuals with one player running forcibly forward whilst the others eventually walk into position behind him for the play the ball. We are not running onto the ball at speed, and inter passing, because they are not up with the play. Any passing between the forwards or backs is usually to a player who is barely moving. We also need a quick and elusive pair of half backs who can create opportunities and distribute the ball. This is not to criticise Sykes as his defence is enormous although I think he could be better used at centre if the previously mentioned half backs were available. As you say Glover is not getting the chances this season but definitely one to keep for next season. Soon be time for us fans to compile a list of who we would like to keep for next season---- but don't start yet ----- don't want to discourage the player that are trying.

    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
