How did Connor play in the halves?

 

The commentators said he looked quite sharp and taking the line on but said his kicking game was off song at bit today.

Got back about an hour ago (exiled Townie in Leeds) - it wasn't pretty today, coughed up a bit too much ball for my liking, but defensively Town did well apart from the first half spell when they conceded the points. Lacked a few ideas going forward and the kicking game was indeed a bit off but they kept plugging away and sometimes if you just keep putting in the effort - even when things aren't quite happening for you - you eventually get a reward. Nullified the Dewsbury attack pretty well and for the most part kept that absolute monster Karl Pryce relatively quiet. That Makali Aizue for them has still got some life in him at 35 or however old he is.

We needed that. Well done Town, no doubt now we're good enough, probably more than good enough if we tighten up?

Wonder how many was at Dews . Championship attendances are a real issue .

Sporting Life gives the Dewsbury crowd as 715 and on the Rams forum they say that there was more than a reasonable turnout from Town.

Poor all round isn't it , us included . And there won't be many Hunsletites boosting us next week as they often seem the worst supported at home of the lot . They've a core from Leeds I think so itll be another one you have to earn .

OMG...did we need that win, well done to the lads today, it didn't sound pretty, but great to see us toughing it out right to the end. It was looking like we could go bottom at one stage.

Let's hope we can build on this and beat Hunslet next week, we have to get into them from the word go. Get down to DP next Sunday and bring a friend, it should be a cracking game for a bank hol weekend.

Well said , make no mistake they're playing some good footy this year and have scored plenty of points . Hope people do turn out , we deserve it and need it . And now we're in our house so lets rip in and make them feel decidedly unwelcome . 6 points in a week is huge and would build momentum for the next few winnable games . And another last minute game breaker today ... That conditioning is a massive asset .

Yeh I raised at eyebrow at that one . They're super fit ... Yet teams do seem to come hard at them late on in games ??? And sometimes even after 20 minutes .

Just had a scan on the Dews forum , geez talk about depressing ! And why are all our wins when there's " two bad teams " ?

Casual fans won't pay £15 to watch games so all clubs attract are the hardcore fan

Brett,s try was sheer determination to get over that line great try. Also his goal kicking was spot on today.Well done to all the lads for grinding out a good hard fort win

Delighted at today's performance against a good team also, we stayed patient when we made mistakes both in attack and defence and fully deserved our win, Connor looked to be enjoying himself in the middle of the park kicking wasn't bad sometimes great other times too much but dropping the ball out 80 metres on 2 occasions really fired the boys up and his defence also!! They clearly were told to get into thacks and acton whenever possible and it worked once or twice but where acton was concerned it mad him hungrier especially his dual with aizue in attack and defence!! Really hope and think we can push on from this, I hope we have the same 17 next week as they were a credit to town today!! Up the town

What happened to Karl pryce what a big lump he who was a handful tackling but boy did any town player put in the effort to get him tackled!! Shame as he was once talked about as the next big thing now a big lardy lad wasting away in the championship
