Workington v Hunslet

28 posts in this topic

Abysmal performance. Lack of professionalism in the teamd arrival ttime. Eaton well past his sell by date no motivation from him and nepotism in his team selection. Worst half backs in Hunslets history. Coach with a strong squad and a worst record than Graham Hallas. Says it all.

I'm waiting for the classic "town were the best of two bad teams". Can't believe you are criticising your halves. That lad i think it was Luke halliwell played very well today.

Kicking game is difficult on our pitch , very firm . Even lots of our kicks which looked perfect scooted out . Our bombs were good though.The number 7 ran the show first half but faded as the pack stopped making inroads . Hunslets fitness looked suspect as the game progressed , they lost their oomph .

We got beat because with a gale force wind behind us in the 1st half we never used it, going in just 6 points in front was never going to be enough with Town using it well in the 2nd half through Peter Lupton who controlled things like a good stand off should.We missed Grimmer badly today not just for his ability to break the line but his rock solid defence - the way Carter just went passed Ansell to score in the 2nd half was pretty poor as was Waine,s try when 3 players had hold of him on the line and somehow got the ball down.For us Hellewell had his best ever 40 mins setting up the 1st and 2nd tries and scoring the 3rd, if only Grimmer had been alongside it would have been differant but thats how things go when your main man is out.The failure to get the bonus point off the last play of the match was sickening, a high bomb was dropped by Chisholm on the line and Town dropped on it, it was Batley all over again and thats 2 bonus points dropped off the last plays of games, lets hope they dont come back to haunt us at the end of the season.

they could well come back and haunt steve , some of the hype ive read on here well u were gonna do this and gonna do tht , it seems the wheels have well and truly fell off , by the way the knives come out , not havin a go at the club players or fans , just an observation , another point its all well and blaming the coach and his assistants but the players need to look at themselves , good luck for the rest of the season guys

Can't comment on the game as I wasn't there. Having read the postings from those who were I have to say that I feel sorry for our supporters who spend good money following the team, when was the last time they saw us win away from home ?

For the second time this season I say looking at our team on paper theres no way we should have been beaten. Something isn't right..Again John Oakes not selected ( thanks for the private message on this ) and in the absence of Grimmer I would have liked to see Callum Windley given a run at half back if only for his pace and enthuusiasm.

So then, some bitter-tasting food for thought for those who failed to recognise last week's win merely papered over several cracks ...

 

1st half performance with the wind -> borderline acceptable
2nd half performance againt the wind -> total and utter garbage
mistakes and errors of judgement -> same old favourites, with one or two new ones dreamt up
defence in our own 20 -> astoundingly naive
tactical kicking -> an alien concept; a contradiction in terms
substitutions -> mystifying, based on what is happening on the pitch
Ansell, Chisolm -> not good enough for this level. If Grimmer wasn't fit then Windley should have played no.6. Send Chisolm back to Leeds
Helliwell -> sole candidate for MOM. Scored one try, set up two others and an amazing tackle on Stack in the first half
Workington -> decent team, especially Olstrum, Carter, Lupton. Organised and well coached

Our coach -> time to go ???????

Listen folks, barring your kicking game and the insistence of playing through Mr March most plays I thought you had a dangerous team especially around the fringes. The scrum half was your MOM, who played very well. IMO the town pack got the better of the Hawks pack which told when you played against the wind in the second half. Maybe you expect more from your team than us Town fans who are happy to be where we are and realise we are in a scrap to stay up.

It's never easy travelling up here and we have the same when we travel almost every other week.

Hope to see you all in a fortnight, I've learned not to wish any of you a safe journey after the match though as I nearly had my head bitten off yesterday!!

KEIGHLEY
