thank goodness the D/R lads were playing. 5 of our tries scored by them, and I'am told the D/R players don't get paid when we loose.

No way should we conceed 44 points to Swinton---

A bonus point but 2 points lost.

we should not be in a position where we are so far behind leaving too much to do. At this rate we will go down and deserve to!

Im there.A crazy game weve scored 40 points and lost.The old classic half time try on the hooter did us in the end.Our defence in the 1st half was woeful and Swinton scored everytime they got near our line however they played some good rugby.2nd half our attack clicked and it was like touch and pass at times, we were always playing catch up though conceding a lucky try off a rebound kick . Moore was awesome again.

Hope Blackpool ensures we learn to tackle before the Dragons arrive next Sunday.

By the way statistics show that Eaton has a worse coaching record than Graeme Hallas--- and we all know what happened to him.

Why were we woefull? Poor coaching! This team is better than this! It's ok making excuses but excuses won't keep us in this league losing to teams we should be beating. HIST said going down is not an option so we went down the dual reg route. We are still looking like we could go down so where do we go from here?

How come Moore knows hes playing early afternoon when team isn't told till friday evening at training. This D/R will ruin a lot of teams, all championship teams built their squad for the start of the season and were good enough to sign for 2013, so why have D/R ?. I can't see players being happy losing out to D/R players who are already getting paid. Ask yourself this, if you was at work and was told your not working this week, we've got someone else to do your job and your not getting any wages this week, and it could be the same next week and the week after that and so on. I'm sure you would be very pleased with that, no money to pay bills etc.

What happens next season if D/R is altered or kicked into touch, and they need their squad players again? Theres only one winner in this and thats the super league clubs.

Absolutely spot on mate.

Did the players & coaches turn up to today's game thinking it would be a easy game without putting any effort in because it was only swinton? Because that's how they appeared in the first half.

Eaton has been in charge for one & half seasons and we are still waiting for a victory against an established championship team. The wait goes on!

So, where on earth do we start tonight after that ?

 

Well, there was no shortage of generosity in defence, we were so generous in the first 40 that Swinton felt it necessary to reciprocate in the second 40!

 

But there were many flaws in what we saw today above and beyond defence (or lack of it). Team selection and use of substitutes urgently needs looking at; the half-backs just aren't doing the business at the minute for some reason; the kicking game, well, I think the euphemism is "needs some work".

 

To be fair, in contrast to all that half-hearted defence, there was plenty of decent passing and support done by both sides ... the net result being that practically every time either team got the ball in the second half, they scored.

 

Which ever way you look at it tonight, we're in a relegation battle again this year.

Let's hope we're not playing in the Twilight Zone this time next year ... :dry:

God knows what the score would have been without the dual reg players

given that it was gaz o'brien & williams that were causing us all the problems in the first half, i'd say fairly low

dual reg is a joke and will kill the game outside of super league.Hunslet have a bad habit of starting matches bad and then having to chase the game.Eaton as shown nothing at this club to make me believe he is a good coach,infact just the opposite.He needs to look at himself before its too late for this club cos i am getting bored of the same things every week.

First of all congratulations to Swinton on scoring some good tries and playing some great free flowing rugby in the 1st half, however we were once again our own worst enemies .We had the ball and were penelised in our own 25 gifting Swinton a set of 6 for the 1st try and then kicked out on the full on the restart to get Swinton back downfield for the 2nd, before we knew where we were it was 16-0 , enter Richard Moore and suddenly we got back in the game at 16-6.With half time looming the old failing of gifting tries away before the interval was once again evident and Swinton not only got 1 but right on the hooter another making 28-6 a mountain to climb.Not only had our defence been abysmal but our on field kicking on the 6th tackle was to put it mildly shocking.

The 2nd half was a reversal of the 1st,Moore and Hood ripped them apart at times and even the goalkicking was good but that dreadful opening period and the half time try just gave us too much to do.
