Francis Cummins is saying the right things, but I'm particularly nervous about this as Leeds look really up for the regular season rounds this time. We can't rely on results going our way every week, and this week in particular could be when we see teams close the gap below us or could stretch away above us (however much vote for who I'd like to win!). It's as must win as it can get in the middle of the year.

Leeds look very good this season, I'm worried how good they look.

So far this season, pies and Leeds leading lights... Others miles behind, miles

Hardaker's not exactly a rock in defence is he?

Think Jamie Jones Buchanan should be picked for England on the basis if we're allowed to utilise the 'over run the ball but get away with the forward pass' play he does for Leeds.

Leeds getting away with holding down, Bradford expected to morph back 10 meters before the tackle is competed.

Bradford won the second, fwiw. Kear is looking good.

Desperately disappointed. I blame Tim Roby again, he's a curse!

 

There are only so many times a slow start can be tolerated until something serious needs to be done. A quick look at the table suggests we're 7th in points against, yet up until this round we had 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th for missed tacklers, and 4th missed tackles in the team standings. We've also given away the most penalties and Elliott Whitehead is the most penalised player. These stats won't get you to compete week in week out.

 

Any positives include Elliot Kear getting a consolation brace of tries, he works his knackers off every week. Erm, I'm pretty sure we won the second half, yet again we compete after the half-time team talk. But as much as I think Cummins has done a brilliant job, I'm getting a little fed up with the poor start and poor defence by one or two experienced heads (Walker for one).

 

This title is between Leeds and Wigan IMO, they are streets ahead at this stage.

 

Right, I'll face this thread later on, too tired to tolerate any usual sniping!! I'll probably watch the game either tomorrow or later on, can anyone please confirm who went high on Ben Evans for his try? I couldn't tell if it was Peacock, or my initial thought of Delaney... or either. Cheers.

 

And well done Leeds. Took just about every opportunity and played some great rugby. Good to see them taking the season seriously.
