  1. Not really as we didn't play. Period!
  2. Apparently both released from hospital early on last evening. Don't think the injuries are as bad as first thought thankfully. Best wishes to the pair of them.
  3. Read a few reports about the 'tactics' employed by your team but took them with a pinch of salt until today. Always enjoyed a tussle between our two clubs and it's always been a good match up but I'm sorry, what I saw from you today was certainly more UFC than RFL. Shocking! A very weak ref didn't help matters but your side clearly look as if they're coached to kill by 'Killer' as was clearly evidenced by Jordan Hand who has never been the kind of player that I saw today. I hope your gang were satisfied watching the ambulances queuing up outside to take the bodies away. Bravo!
  4. He has done before along with Luke Watetworth.
  5. I think there was always going to be a hint of 'after the Lord Mayor's show' about this game but we were lucky it was against Skolars and not a league game against stiffer opposition. Agreed it was a game of 2 halves in difficult conditions and we're in the hat for the next round. It's looking like Stuart Littler may have to get his socks out of retirement as we are seriously short of outside backs at the moment with Matt Gardner joining get the injury list!
  6. I agree. Didn't post enough points in 1st half and more importantly didn't kick the conversions. We just need to learn how to close games out!
  7. Flying on Thursday afternoon Staying in Ibis Central for 5 days x 2
  8. This was almost the ideal start to the season but it ended up the next best thing. A great performance which shows that we are not too far off the top clubs at the moment. Two good prospects have joined us from Wigan in the form of Forsyth and Davis and there may be a couple of others waiting their turn as we have registered five. That should keep all the squad on their toes and fighting for a shirt on a Sunday. Cant wait for Dewsbury on Sunday for the next instalment!
  9. It has never been chic to be old fashioned, just old fashioned. I give my respect to those who have earned it not those who demand it because they've 'seen it all before'. I was always taught that if I requested help then I be grateful for it wether it was the answer I wanted to hear or not. Sometimes Keith you are just plain rude. Chic is a French word not British. 'Nuffsed' is not a real word. I don't care if you read or subscribe to RLJ as I'm a member of the PFJ. In answer to your original question Nick Gregson has play in the Super League for Wigan on a number of occasions this season therefore he is robotic and boring with no skill whatsoever. I also believe Riggy wishes he hadn't bothered too Mark!
  10. "The fact is that Oldham scored more points than Swinton did"? I'm afraid they didn't. As some of your fans have already said the reason for your loss is that you didn't stick to your game plan and we thankfully changed ours. If your kick had been given you would have scored 2 more points. If one of ours had been given so would we. If we hadn't taken a drop goal and scored a try under the sticks instead we'd have beaten you by 3 or maybe 5 points. Ifs, buts and maybes don't win games I'm afraid!
  11. So it's ok for the tmo to overrule the ref when it's a ball grounding decision but not for a 40-20? And to say that he can for a conversion is ludicrous. Peoples views change from all angles and the only people who know for sure are the touch judges who position themselves under the sticks.
  12. Got mine today!
  13. The problem is Keith that it is the English owners of the English clubs who has brought the Aussie coaches and players in. They just speak the language they use at home and it's been adopted over here as the norm by the English coaches, English players and English commentators. It's basically OUR fault it's happened but it has happened and that's the end of it. It isn't going to change abytime soon unless we resurrect the dead. And PLEASE don't get me started on what GB has given to the rest of the world. That would open a whole new can of worms!
  14. Keith was you attacked by an Australian at some stage or maybe something worse? Why are you constantly attacking them at every opportunity? It isn't their fault we have a dodgy set of officials running the RFL. They don't dictate the way we play it's the coaches over here trying to emulate how they work (or so you say) including the English coaches. Yes Murdock is an Aussie but I bet he doesn't give a rats ###### where a stand off positions himself at a scrum. If the RFL had more balls then they would dictate when we play games and at what time. You don't have sky anyway do you? so what's your beef as you don't even watch Super League?
  15. A real game of two halves. I agreed with most comments on here up to now but I would like to add a couple too. I thought Matty Beharrell's tackling was magnificent. He's a bit of a pocket monster in defence and his passing got better as he got more time in. Bracek put in 100% for us and he is the offloaded we have been missing. I hope we get him for longer than a month and out halves learn to be alert for the pass. It creates gaps. Haven's right wing has a good game too, only young but he had bags of pace. Can't say I'm happy as I'm going to miss the next 2 games for work!
