IS IT A RECORD?

25 posts in this topic

I reckon, and I stand to be corrected, that we have scored a try in the last 2 mins of the last 6 games.This has either drawn, won or took bonus points from the opposition. Not only does it mean we are competing for the full 80 mins it means we are aware of the situations. I cannot remember anything like this having followed the Gallant Youths/ Bulldogs for over 50 years.Can anyone else??

 

Halifax, Doncaster, Workington, Hunslet, Dewsbury, Whitehaven.

I make you right, Colin. We always used to conceed in the last minute back in the day, but we most definitely play the full 80 nowadays!

John Heaton has to take an awful lot of credit for the fitness and conditioning work he has done over the last couple of years.

RIght, we've got the last couple of minutes in the game sorted out.

Now we need to sort out the first twenty minutes and stop giving the opposition a try or two start.

True, do we like proving how good we are by giving everyone a start? Even though we are second and only lost one, it feels like we have really still to get going, or to play at our full potential.

Next two league games will give us a sense of where we are.

Have to say though, in most games this season it seems to take us 15 to 20 minutes to get going at the start of a game - maybe thats the reason for the late bursts?

a shocking referee made you look good we had mullaly dual reg last season and he told us he was no where near touching down the try was given. cumbrian teams getting a bad rub of the green the same at workington

Be that as it may, Mullally didn't score the final try, and that is what this thread is about. In the last half dozen league games we have scored at the death which, to me shows how the team are well prepared, conditioned and fit, a team that can and do last the full 80 minutes.

 

Now if you want to moan about the ref or that you were robbed please find the correct thread.

 go on as much as you want calvert was held back for the last try and mullaly never grounded his try costing us 12pts and at least a bonus point. still we will look forward to you coming the rec for a game easy winnable. and again we carried no dual reg this week unlike every team we have played this season bar barrow

Sore loser IMO. We didn't play all that great and the try you claim wasn't touch down definitely was I was right in front of it. Also I think you will find Greenwood was being obstructed when attempting to get the ball. I'm guessing you had your Rose tints on.

Nice win for us with a few players rested too :)

calvert wasn't nowhere near the last try it was cain southerwood pulling miles back so miles step around him and got it down just and mullaly did ground just after it was ripped out

Unless my eyes deceived me, which is possible, the ref awarded a penalty try to Mullally on the basis that the ball was ripped by more than one man in the tackle. His hand signals certainly suggested that when he blew for the try.

The forward passes were all the correct decision I have to say, and just down to sloppiness on our part. We lacked coherency in attack yet still never looked like losing, which is a positive sign for us. The constant lying on in the tackle from the rather slow, plodding haven forwards didn't help either. It's all opinion of course but I think George Flanaghan would have had a field day with all the gaps at the play the ball, which we never really fully exploited.

Haven were plucky and game but didn't really look threatening except when getting repeat sets in our 20. Calvert's pace was the only possible danger from long range. Was very disappointed in their halves who offered nothing at all attacking wise.

A better attacking game from us would have seen us win by 40 points. So unless we drop our levels further or haven have several notices extra to find, going to the rec isn't an overly daunting proposition. However that isn't to say it will be an easy game either, as no such thing exists in this division.

I don't know how we've got any money left to pay our players with all the bungs we must have given the refs this season.

Why waste a good present on someone who is not going to use it BSJ? But very nice of you to get me an Xmas prezzie. What about "The Rams greatest games of the modern era"? As I only have an attention span of 60 seconds this should be the petfect gift for me :)
