No blame can be attached to the officials after that display. Nor can the excuse of new players or players out of position justify that performance. I am not doubting the effort just the manner of play. Fair play to London who put us to the sword. An early indication of the dire afternoon for Barrow was indicated by Londons' first soft try when our defence melted away. We then went up the other end and had 3 sets of tackles and looked clueless and disorganised. There then followed two other shocking lapses in defence as the Broncos racked up the next 2 tries. The body language of the Raiders players was worrying even at this stage. No one seemed to be trying to lift the spirits of the team as they stood behind the posts - where were the leaders? We were, to say the least, flat and predictable in attack and often pedestrian in moving the ball especially from the acting half-back - this no doubt contributed to the number of hurried kicks and kicks being charged down. Once London realised they could simply get amongst us and nullify our attack we had nothing to offer. Where was plan B? Parata was wasted defending out wide. It may be the fashion for the scrum-half to defend there but in following that fashion we moved one of our best middle defenders from where he is very effective. I'll always support the Raiders and don't want to be overcritical but if we continue to play in that manner then future prospects are not promising.
