  1. Lost a bit of respect for John Kear there. Virtually handing two points to Barrow on a plate, yet the first choice players will no doubt be back in action on Sunday against ourselves.
  2. They're welcome to him.
  3. Our discipline is absolutely appalling.
  4. Seriously? Brearley isn't a centre any more than Ward is a stand-off. He filled in there against Widnes in an emergency and did well. That doesn't mean he should play there every week.
  5. I'll be absolutely staggered if we get within 20 points of them. Dewsbury 34 Batley 6.
  6. Not at all a knee jerk reaction. Aside from the Widnes effort, our performances this season have been atrocious, by and large. The rugby we're playing is dire, disorganised and ineffectual. No-one would be that upset if performances had been decent and the losses had been unlucky.
  7. I have to disagree with this. A poor coach can only destroy a club if allowed to remain in his position by his employer.
  8. Underestimated? No, it's more to do with the fact that we're playing like a Championship 1 team.
  9. Whilst the win over Widnes was hugely pleasing and I was cheering as much as the next fan at the final hooter, can we please be realistic? The Widnes side we faced was badly depleted with only three or four recognised professionals in their line-up. We struggled to beat a side comprised mainly of recent Academy products. So yes, fantastic to get the victory and hopefully it'll be a springboard to success. However, I'm not yet going to start singing the praises of a coach who has presided over our worst start to a season since the dark old Thornton days.
  10. The utterly dire Everett and out of form Tomlinson for me.
  11. Brearley has to be in the starting line-up for Sunday. He's an absolute no brainer for the loose-forward slot. Bags of class and all-around ability. No doubt the coach will have different ideas.
  12. Radney Bowker from Leigh and the later Barrow. A hugely talented stand-off who just seemed to fade out of the game.
  13. It was an awful side, yes. If Harrison hadn't immediatey been able to snare Handforth from a bankrupt Doncaster, we'd have been relegated. Our best hope this season is to replace Diskin with a coach who will instil some nastiness, aggression and organisation. It's unlikely that a gem like Handforth would be available.
  14. I actually think that Jouffret has talent. However, it's becoming increasingly apparent that he isn't anywhere near good enough to be the fulcrum of a team playing at this level. Ditching Walker was a huge mistake. Essentially, we let a player of enormous experience and class leave on the basis that Jouffret looked pretty good against Barrow and an unpaid, demoralised Leigh team.
