We'll beat Barra on that . We're so nearly there ... So many good things to build on , just that cutting edge to get full value for all our hard graft over the full 80. Get that key piece of the jigsaw right and I can see someone getting a tanking . They were the champs and they were soooo there to be taken comfortably ... Aaaarghhhh

Turley was certainly Sheffield's man of the match, especially in the 2nd half. He wasn't just inept he was totally out of his depth. He made several schoolboy errors but always in favour of Sheffield. He disallowed a try for Town under the sticks and gave us a penalty 3 yards from the line for a high tackle!!!!! Calderwood made a good catch up in the air and a Sheffield player jumped in to him causing him to come down on his shoulder and Turley is waving play-on. Even in the last minute they put up a high kick and a Town player knocked it forward and another Town player coming back picked the ball up and he allowed him to carry on.

Having said all that he didn't get any help from the other two people running about on the touchline with their little flags!!!!!!!

I think the ball to Carter was forward so he couldn't play on. It was a lottery but if we'd scored second half it would have taken him out of the game.

Agreed Fester . Bizarre , keep the scoreboard ticking !! We do tend to get a bit panicky at times . We need a general out there , should be Lupton really . Dunno who was making the calls . Was funny though early on when Carter forgot he was on kicking duty !!!!!

Yes some poor decisions today but lets face it most refs outside SL are poor. I can't blame the ref as if we had converted some of the good field position we had we would have won. Just one converted try would have done it.

I can't help thinking that in this team Carter is our most potent central attacking weapon , but they don't get him involved enough in the final third . Look at top fullbacks like Tomkins and Slater , how they roam up the middle and get inside passes and plays put on for them . I know it's a different level but you can use the same moves . His footwork and elusiveness should be used more at the opposition end , not just running it out .Let him trail up the middle and get him the ball or kick for him . Anythings worth a go to look less predictable n static .Full back is a key attacking weapon in teams nowadays .

Town done enough to win the game, the Ref done enough to win sheffield the game!! the match dvd will substantiate these comments.

Shocking referee performance today, cheating at the lowest level, like fathesr like son!!!

Ok the ref was -rap, I havent seen a good one yet, and as for his two little helpers well, thought one looked liked Woodsy, but it wasnt the ref who left gaps you could put a bus thru (twice), it wasnt the ref who took a tap (twice) infront of the sticks instead of the two, it wasnt the ref that knocked on with the line begging, yes he missed a lot but they all do, would we have been calling him if we had taken our chances, I dont know, I do know that in this league you have to take every chance that comes your way, make no mistakes, and play a bit more smarter.

It was a great performance by the boys today, and if the little things can be sorted, we are in for a great season, well done Town, onwards and upwards :)

We could be good. Please can we have some set plays ?? Dummy runners? And some better kicks.

Excellent effort today thought we played well we just lack that little bit of creativeness, once we get that sorted we will be a very good team.

Up the Town!

Yes it is a persistent frustration when you see teams who aren't special and who you're dominating in territory and

possession but time after time can't nail down . It's a combination of coaching and personnel , but I'd blame the coaches more

for not recruiting in areas where it was blatantly obvious we needed more potency and strike ., at half and out wide , than their training methods .

If we had the creators and strike finishers behind this pack , a lot of the fluency and end product would take care of itself. We load up on power and size but we have

neglected the point creating and scoring element for a wee while in terms of quality and strength in depth . And when a couple of

injuries hit were filling in with woefully inadequate or out of position replacements. Only my opinion . Generally though these first few games have been broadly encouraging , although frustrating in that we should be getting more reward for our effort - but that's a sign

of how well we've competed . Maybe we could bring in an attack coach to bring a few fresh ideas , because if your hearing the same voices year on year you can get a bit stale and samey , as we sometimes look., and coaches run out of new things to say!

Attack coaches !?!?! I think you are being a bit harsh on Oggy & Charlo. Before the season started I would have taken your hands off if you had said that we would very nearly beat the champions 4 games into the season. I think we need to just look over our shoulders to see where we have been for the last decade and realise it will take more than one season to establish a Championship squad. Wait until we have our injured players back and it will give us the cutting edge to take the extra step. The more the players play together the tighter they will get in attack.

Yeh it was late , not one of my best , but we do need to find extra to get what we deserve from our great efforts . Your looking at these teams thinking gee you may be top sides but your so beatable , and we have so many chances to do so but can't get the job done . It's a measure of how far we've come , but it is frustrating that teams your better than on the day are picking your pocket with a fraction of the chances your getting.

I dont agree with an attack coach but we had no moves atall on yesterday actually none. We cant expect to beat teams by passing the ball to our props near the opposition line .we have to be smarter alot smarter with the ball and to me thats down to the coaches

I hope they can provide this...

No moves at all? So Coyle running onto Luptons pass wasn't a set move?? Sorry pal I know your frustrated that we aren't scoring bags of points, and I know what your saying with the props but I think you are being harsh on our coaches.

Yea ok but other than that try what did we have? throughout the game we very very rarely had a dummy runner and when we tried to pass out wide we were too slow, I believe our coaches can put some plays on , I want them to do well and i dont like having a go but its just how i feel about it. I know its a big step up and the defences are alot sharper than the likes of Gateshead,London etc but I believe we have a team capable of breaking defences down with some slick rugby...its just not happening at the moment.
