Whats gone wrong

Excellent post homeandawayer . We must return to the Lupton / Olstrum 6 & 13 axis , and Forber has a good game between to many average ones I'm afraid . His in play kicking game , distribution and game management are to inconsistent . Callum's a live wire but the poor kid just looked lost with far to much on his shoulders yesterday . He's not a string puller he's an individual whizz - he must have Peter next door . Look at the Donny blueprint . Injuries are unfortunate but they also show up inflexibilities on the bench and to rigid game plans ...we should have seen out that game but to often we're talking of our lack of smarts out on the paddock I'm afraid . Feel sorry for Matty , Stacky n Thacks in particular I thought they gave everything to win it on their own .

To be fair most of us clamoured for Forber to keep his place him and Callum worked well against Hunslet but Doncaster offered a different challenge and we probably needed Lupton at 6 but hindsight a a wonderful thing

exactly, i think there was only davidm who said go back to lupton. you have to play your in form players and against hunslet forber was really good. we need lupton to control our game and from 13 he cant do that.what i dont think many of us didnt take into consideration was the weakened side that hunslet put out.

If it ain't broke ... We were on a good run .They were a bit blinkered by that one game , and rewarded Forber on that , but squad sports aren't fair ,you pick your strongest team and when we're healthy in the halves Forber isn't in that for me . It's a game of opinions .I always liked the look of Callum n Peter on paper and Peters been to influential to shift . Hey ho , it's gone now . It's how you come back . We can make up this ground on Thursday ... Will we ? Lets see .

Indeed . Goes for The beast from the south east and big Brett to . Even big Red to , he'd have matched Waterman for muscle and held him . But goes for all teams I guess . We're getting into injury time in the season aren't we , and the teams who handle it best will survive . DR is gonna be huge in this league till September. Teams who stay healthy and stay topped up with strength from outside hold the aces . Principles take a back seat I'm afraid . With a short turn around and coming off a pretty poor and tired performance , would they really shake them up and go big on DR on Thursday to pull back this result ?

Interesting to see what's on offer

Not much I'm afraid, Widnes as of yesterday (out of a squad of 30) had 8 players unavailable due to either injury, suspension or loan deal. Of the players available (excluding the 17 needed for their own game), Lawton was the only forward, plus Declan Hulme (now injured), Shaun Briscoe (FB), Danny Craven (FB/SO) and Grant Gore (SO/SH). I can't see them loaning any other player(s) for our thursday night game, with their own important match against Catalan due in only three days time. Lets hope that some of the Widnes injured players are available for Sunday or it may be (to ensure a fit group of nineteen) that only two players will be available for DR (on Thursday), and possibly not the only spare forward.

hulme got injured very early and looked a bad one ankle ligaments i heard. lawton played most of the game and got a good try through good support play finishing a move off

Gutted for the lad and with his first start as a centre too.At the moment we have a terrible amount of injuries and also Hock suspended.

I watched the Widnes v Salford game off tape when I got in yesterday and boy what a miss Adam Walne is . He's looks destined for pretty big things . Jordan is a fine prospect in his own right but Adam , with his physique , strength , skills n speed is the finished article and can play anywhere in the pack .Shame for us he left , he is all impact ,love to see him n Acton together !! I thought he was an xfactor for us .Good move for him though .Hope he keeps doing well , able to make the top.Talented family , Jordan has good assets and a great attitude - did you notice when he dropped the ball the first thing he did was smash the bloke who picked it up with a great hit !

Hope he hangs around he's only getting better , gives real starch to a defence doesn't he ?

exactly, i for one dont want charlo and oggy to leave but getting someone to help is never a bad idea and im sure they have a good relationship with paul working with him for cumbria and a lot of the players will know him.

 just remember how bad you were under rotherham, charlo oggy and barker done a great job
