Richard Moore returns to the Hawks squad for Premier Sports clash

71 posts in this topic

The match seems to have been covered on 3 seperate topics, so I will put my replies all together on this one.

The first goalkick definately missed-- don't think the referee saw that one linesman was signalling no goal== but the PA announcer did as he was giving out the wrong score for a while-- nothing wrong I think  with the second goal kick .Question can goalkicks  be referred to the video ref ? 

Leave off Watson he,s had more good games than bad.

Answer to the question- where was John Oaks--- he was sat in front of me in the stand.

No problem with car parking I just drove in to the main overflow car park and there was plenty of room.

Finally, it could be my eyes that are going but are our floodlights getting dimmer ?

I thought Watson was one if not our best player, his kick returns were superb he defused every high kick, cover tackled well and was a threat with ball in hand.

 

No way can he blamed for the 40/20 he ran nearly 50 yards to try and stop that, and he was never going to stop it, as by the time he got there it had virtually crossed the line, id be more inclined to ask why the winger wasn't back covering that kick rather than blaming someone who ran 50 yards to try and prevent it, and not forgetting it was a great kick!

 

As for his mistake in the last minute, yes it cost us a late try, but it had no bearing on the game whatsoever, but overall he played well. Was the best of all the Leeds players IMO.

The fullback cant afford to make mistakes, it's like a goalkeeper letting it through his legs.

This is not the first time, he has been at fault for tries.

If you want to be cynical, you could say it would of been a hat trick of errors if Batley did not knock for their last disallowed try. Plus I read a report that he was the one to head high tackle who gave them the 2 penalty points, plus he gave that blatant forward pass from dummy half.

It's very well giving good kick returns and gaining that extra 5-10 yards, but when you are the last line of defence you can't afford to make any mistakes and giving tries away.

From a Batley perspective your fullback had a decent game barring the knock on. He took several testing high balls very well, and returned it well on the ground making useful metres. As BH has alluded to he would have had to be Inspector Gadget to stop the ball going into touch for the 40-20. Was just a very clever kick from Tom Hemmimgway.

I think the trouble is everything Watson did was being scrutinised after several posts on here from a couple of people beforehand suggesting he's a superstar in the making, rather than just a very decent championship player. The lad is automatically then going to be judged more closely.

What, no mistakes at all? ever?

To be a decent full back you can't be afford to be error prone. One of hunslet's best full back in recent history rich baker hardly evert made a mistake.

Maybe being full time, he can put in that extra effort in handling a rugby ball and positional sense.

I must have been watching a different game at a different stadium - some strange comments on here (probably due to the DR dislike no doubt).

 

Watson made two mistakes all night:

 

1 - A forward pass from dummy half in the final 10 minutes - WOW do you never see that in SL? No big deal. 

2 - He slipped up at the end and scuffed the tricky ball - having to run horizontal across the pitch as the attackers were approaching.  Fair enough.

 

Where were the other mistakes?  None!!!!  Disallowed try under the post for Batley - Watson caught the ball in the air and Batley knocked in on - fact! see the TV slow motion.  The 40/20?  He was stood on the line arms at length trying to reach it.  Ran 50 yards to get it - What more can you do?

 

He saved a definate try with his chase back causing the Batley player to lose the ball.

Caught on the full all night and brilliant postional play.

Better drop Sam Tompkins and Zak Hardaker from the England camp then.  As they make more errors than anyone I know.

he shouldnt have had to run 50 yards, he should of been in the right place in the first place. Batley where attacking Pryce's side so he had to stay up in the line, Watson should have been covering that touch line not the middle of the park.

gaz, nobody is denying young Watson has talent but he is prone to a few howlers, at home v dewsbury when he let an harmless looking kick roll for an eternity costing 6 points probably the worst .Last night i thought he had the 40/20 well covered but took too much time before he made a play for it, the kick at the end i will concede it was a very awkward ball to take and unlucky that it conceded a try.Lets hope it hasnt knocked his confidence too much.

As he is the last line of defence I suppose the buck stops with him.  I am a little bias. :ph34r:

The winger wasnt back because batley were attacking that side so he has to stay in the line, that was the fullbacks fault.

Was a good kick though.

Massive boost having Richard Moore in the squad!

 

I hope he's stocked up on energy bars... He's playing at the Magic Weekend too!

I was under the impression that if a player was selected for there parent club (in the 19 man squad) they weren't allowed to play for the feeder club? Is this not the case?

The first goal attempt definately missed, it swerved away at the last minute. Can't blame watson for the 40/20, if they were attacking prlce's side, then watson moves over to cover that side, whilst the other winger drops back to cover the other side of the pitch. Saw Oaksey & Brickwood sat in stand (why I dont know). How mapals got mom is beyond me, hes good at running it in, but if you watch him, he roams about the pitch, which leaves a massive hole uncovered on the wing. Welham had a decent game and Prlce is loved for yesteryear, as is one or two others. Blunt but true. And i've already posted my views on D/R.

That's my understanding of it too, by playing for Hunslet he surely rules himself out of playing for Leeds in the same game weekend (a weekend being Thurs-Mon with tv games)

You play for one or t'other

Is it not the minutes you play rather than if you play? I remember watching a player in the U18s at Leeds and he played x amount of minutes in the U18 game as he was playing also for the U20s a day or so later. Maybe im not sure.

I recon Moore is there to make the numbers up tho and doubt he will play. Shame though I rate him.

First up, like Batley linked  with Huddersfield we are both not  feeder clubs , but two Duel Reg clubs. A world of difference.

And can't see why Richard Moore or any one else,( say one of your duel reg players from Huddersfield) cannot play for both clubs in less than a week. Think this has happened before with Singleton. Cannot see any problem with that, as it is not in the same league, what don't effect results in two different leagues.

How did you think Coyle went gabby ?Obviously lacked match fitness but a lovely short ball to put houston through early on promised much imo.

One or two passes put men through but one or two terrible passes. Probably due to lack of match practice.
