Has he retired or going to another club ?

All that was said today was that he'd left the club, and I'm lead to believe it could be something to do with been left out of the team today. He did tweet on twitter about it earlier today.

Well to be fair to him mo I can see why if I'm being honest. I mean we lost on Friday and if he can't get in the team after 2 straight defeats and the way we played on Friday he must be thinking I haven't got much chance if any of getting game. But I like to see players fighting for the jersey myself. I would of preferred him to stay and made that jersey his through impressing in training and on the pitch. But like I said its understandable too. Shame I thought he was a good player just had a lot of bad luck through injuries but I wish him well whatever he decides to do next in his career.

I think it's a pity too. It must be tough returning from injury at the start of the season, it gives your rivals a chance to nail down the position, whereas if you make a good start to the season then get injured you are more likely to get picked when you regain fitness. It makes it more difficult now with the Dual Reg partnerships, because a loan spell at another club would have been the ideal recovery plan.

We played pretty well for periods of the game, but we looked nervous. There is an edgy feel around the place at the moment after two losses and the boys need to get back to enjoying themselves.

Sounds spot on to me. Shades of Batley away, and the couple of games after that last season.

I think a few players confidence has been knocked lately, as Daryl says there's a bit of edginess to some players and it show at times with players not quite timing their runs for plays.Hopefully yesterday may have helped to start getting back on track.Up the ROVERS.

Bostock MOM for me too, I'm a bit worried about the form of Jonny Hepworth and Tommy Saxton though, neither of them showing the class of previous seasons. Has Tommy been sussed by opposition defences? And why he didn't go for the corner instead of stepping inside to be caught on the line I'll never know? Same with Jamie Lockwood, all he had to do was drop on the line!

Was Tommy Hodson injured or dropped/rested? Our right wing defensive line-up has been very lightweight of late and I wondered if Daryl wanted to bulk it up a bit? If Penny hadn't had butterfings though, he would have left Helliwell and Bryan standing!

Agree, Steve. Tommy has not been the same player since his bad injury, was it at the start of last season?. Has lost that habit of making yards out of nothing. We still require a big, fast paced centre, IMO.

Missed another game due to illness. That is now six weeks.. Two questions :Haven't we just signed a twenty year old prop from York? And when we come up against Yere at home do you think Brian could handle him at centre?. I note they lost at Whitehaven, but he still scored two trys.

If the rumour is true on the cas forum then we may need a new coach soon. So if that is the case I'm sure the tweaking will go on a fair bit longer.

What does it say TG?

Well we moved Bostock away from the centre position as he has no pace what so ever and who pops up in the centre, Lamont with even less.

OMG. My as well play Bostock there at least he can tackle.

Think it was a necessity to play Bryan there on Monday.

I wouldn't move Bostock away from prop though.

I would next time we face Menzie Yere, but only as a one off. Even though he might be faster than Bozzy, he isn't quick enough for that to matter, and no-one gets past Bostock by force. Even if we missed him at prop, it wouldn't be half as much as Sheffield would miss a neutralized Menzie Yere!

Shouldn't be considering using forwards in the backs unless there's an injury crisis. As for Yere, the (back row) forwards should just run at him at every opportunity.
