Yorkshire Signs Albert Goldthorpe Shield, this Sunday!

It was 40-0 to the Hawks.

Thought Lee Mapels was outstanding ,rightly so winning the man of the match award, thought Mapel's got three tries today not four, and Oaksy was our 2nd best player today.

A lot of effort put in today from both teams for a friendly fixture.

Again just our goalkicking let us down, March needs to be our goalkicker for this season. I know he missed one kick at goal today, but he is the best we have for the kicking duties.

Yes, a good afternoon's entertainment missed by those who stayed away. Plenty of positives for us; everybody looks fit, passing was sharp and there's plenty of pace throughout the team ... going to be a particularly interesting fight for the 1 to 5 shirts I think! Defence was strong, limiting the Allstars to just a couple of chances, one they knocked on and another was chalked off for off-side (harshly from where I was sitting).

Goalkicking was a bit wayward, but the fact that we moved it about a bit meant that the wingers scored six tries between them, all out wide.

Regarding the attendance, it's amazing how fast the novelty value wears off on games like this. I remember the inaugural Lazenby Cup match after its resurrection brought something like 1600 in, don't think we've been close to that ever again. Maybe last year the Warriors and Old Boys fans thought they might have thought they had a bit of a chance, a year on and I think most people expected a one-sided match to some degree or other.

Well done to both sides for an enjoyable game.

Hunslet Warriors are not playing at the moment, so there will be less interest around there club until the summer season starts. That could keep quite a few away.

Understand Luke Helliwell withdrew from the team overnight,--- he would have been doing the goalkicking.

We've got David March who kicked in Super League--- have to agree with us regulars who have been saying since lastt season that we need a goalkicker plus a scrum half--- Barry Eaton should know all about goalkicking so lets wait and see who gets that job when the league season starts.

Very pleased with yesterdays performance.

Good to see that over the last 120 minutes we have only conceded 10 points

You're getting too good at stats Penola--- watch out there may be a job for you soon.

Replying to a earlier posting by KOL about goalkickers going out to practise before the game--- I remember a top goalkicker with the team we were playing doing just that-- he kicked every practise goal, and I thouht b-hell we don't stand a chance today. When the game came he missed every goal.

Finally let's not forget DANNY RATCLIFFE , and keep him in the frame. Perhaps HAWKEYE could update us on him.

There was talk of the old boys/warriors playing each other and the winner takes on the hawks but thats defeating getting the community involved , the warriors start training 2morro (Tues) for there summer campaign , and the old boys last game was 15th December and i think it showed in their fitness towards the end , On the low crowd it was disappointing , but i do know that there are fans who watch both Hawks and there amateur club and fans who just watch there amateur club , maybe the mobile sign could be parked up next to the amateur grounds on the saturdays they play..........but there is still a lot to work on between the Pro and Amateur clubs.........
