Why would Leeds make the decision on our coach? They wouldn't, full stop.

As for HIST not having any money, the club itself didn't and still doesn't have money to splash about, and I know for a fact we're better off now than we were before HIST came in. You're right it's not a toy, it's a business, and a business should not spend money it doesn't have.

WAINHOUSE or some other Leeds muppet will be our next coach IMO. HIST have done brilliant things off the pitch but on it we are shocking

Plenty of experiance dosnt mean your good enough, we have had the same "plenty of experience for 3 years yet have only manged 9 wins in that time both under Paul March & Barry Eaton, which would suggest the budget is everything, if you can only play a certain amount to attract a player then that's your limitation?

Then league 1 is where we will be next year and we will see how it goes with all the long trips.Who funds all the away trips in league 1 ? cant see Leeds doing duel reg with a team that plays at such a low level

How did Haley do for you today as he always gave 100% at Fev and thought he would stand out at Hunslet with his strong go forward

Championship 1it may be next year, but the reality is, crowds, & turnover, all suggest we are a championship 1 team.

Couldnt go today so cant say too much BUT if you,d have said to me before the season started, name me the worst 2 things that could kill our season but wont possibly happen it would have been

 

a/  the Rhinos to have the worst ever injury crises in living memory

b/  Grimmer to cop a bad injury and miss a fair chunk of the season

 

you couldnt make it up, if it wasnt for bad luck this club would have no luck at all.

Still 9 games to go and 27 points to play for, the team needs our support more than ever before for the run in, so I'd urge everyone to get to Keighley to support the team.

In the words of Rocky Balboa:

" Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!"

Bring on the Cougars !!!

I thought he was far and away our best forward, plenty of aggression and made good yards with the ball, never took a backwards step. Unfortunately apart from Watson none of his team mates had the same commitment. The worst performance from the team this year.

When LIAM HOOD  doesn't play the forwards don't play either-- it's him that makes them.

 

Read somewhere that Grimmer and Luke Helliwell could be back soon.

No leadership yesterday and no pride and no passion resulting in the game being played in silence apart from the Swinton supporters who couldn't believe what they were seeing.

All is not lost if we win these next 3 away games we'll be in a play off posistion.

For us to win the next 3 away games Grimmer needs to have recovered and the Rhinos injury situation needs to miraculously clear up - incredibly ive heard Jones-Buchanan is now out for the season. Even Hood gets injured for us, its incredible and didnt Marchy limp off y,day ?

Yes March came of injured in the first half (unlike him)-- and yes we do need a full fit team for these  next games.

Somebody keeps coming on this Forum saying we have the lowest playing budget in the Division and should finish in the bottom 2 or 3-- thats making excuses-- all I want to see is a Hunslet team playing with passion and then win or loose we could all go home happy.

I don't think we could ever question the lads commitment or passion this season, everyone of them including the Leeds players have given %100 percent week in week out. Yesterday was just a very bad day at the office for all concerned, we were second best all over the park. We need to pick ourselves up for Keighley and come out fighting. We also need everyone to be at Keighley to cheer the lads on, I personally targeted 2 wins from Swinton, Keighley and Donny, yes we have lost our first game but it is possible to pick up 6 points in our next two games. lets support the lads at Keighley and Donny get behind them and give them the best possible chance of picking up maximum points.

 

SO WE SHALL AGAIN

Leeds players have had a 100% positive approach playing for us all season HUNSLET72. 

I thought Leeds had long term injury problems ?, hope your right HUNSLET72.

 

Fact is If we had not Duel Reg with Leeds we would not have had half the points we have, and we would have been bottom of the league earlier on in the season.

 

Bramley was a different case to us, as they went to groundshare Headingley , and were not doing that. I don't know the full details of what went on between Leeds and Bramley to comment about that . ?

Yesterday hunslet carried on with their shambolic defending where they left off away at swinton.

This season it seems like everyone is more concerned with who is injured at Leeds rather than who's playing for hunslet.

I wonder if eaton has the same approach to training, rubbing off on the players that we are hopeless if we are not thrown the scraps from another club instead of focusing on the next game with the tools he's got.

I am not sure where people get we would of been bottom if we we didn't have DR. When you look at results from this season to last, they are similar with the exception of a couple of thrashings.

You would have expected a improvement on the results with having 5 full time players, but it just hasn't happened.

This must come down to either the coach, or lack of team spirit with DR, having a unsettled team or a combination.

Are you lot sure you watch the same game as me. How anyone can question the coach, the dr's or the team spirit of a club that went within 5 minutes of beating fax is beyond me.

The Halifax game showed what a difference an on form 6, 7 & 9 makes. Just look at Whitehaven and how it went t*ts up hood went off. This sunday Ansell did nothing all game, coyle looked lost with no other ball player giving options and Haigh is sadly half the player he was last year.

Hunslet still lost to Halifax, and the sad reality that's the highlight of Eaton's reign as coach. He is probably the first coach in the history of the club to of had 5 full time pro's in the team.

Hunslet need to start beating teams around them & not only raising their game for the bigger teams. We still haven't beaten a established championship team, our only victories in his tenure are beating the promoted teams at home plus York - well our gaurenteed York double is looking uncertain this year.

Our players on paper are better than what the table shows , but to me theres definitely something wrong down at Hunslet , ok where missing key players but other players should be stepping up and putting a shift in , weather its down to D/R , Hunslet players only stepping up for big games , coaches ( To many Chiefs and not enough Indians ) ect.............. alot of the players seem more bothered about who has the best fluorescent coloured boots...........

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE RELATIONSHIP HUNSLET HAS WITH LANDLORDS L.C.C. COUPLED WITH THE TIME LEFT ON OUR CURRENT LEASE .THROUGH LACK OF SUPPORT THROUGH DUEL REG . . SHOULD WE DROP A DIVISION , I PREDICT OUR  HOME GROUND WILL BE HEADINGLY .  THEN  WE GET SWALLOWED UP , ITS A BUSINESS THAT NEEDS TO BREAK FREE FROM THE  STRANGLEHOLD WHICH IS  LEEDS R.L.

We were terrible today and were well beaten! We all want 17 Hunslet players playing in our team and I'm afraid that's what's get served when you get it, take out the class of the Leeds players and we have the same squad that only managed 2 wins in 2012 and 3 wins in 2011 so what do we expect? Everyone blaming Barry, yet no one questions the players performances, he's not the one missing tackles, dropping the ball, throwing forwards passes? no one is as dissapointed than me today but when I take a step back and look at the facts, it's quite easy to see that without the Leeds players we should all fully expect us to be in the bottom 2, we have the lowest crowds in the league, we have the lowest budget in the league and we have no financial backer and are a supporter owned club, so as to be expected we will struggle with a squad of players that have won 9 games in 3 years of rugby! I'm gutted with today, but that's how i expected this season to be, especially when you think we played today without our first choice half backs! And as stated it wasn't log ago that we were bottom of the RFL, and a joke, getting thumped by London skolars, the fact we even are competing now inI this division for the 3rd year running is something to be proud of when you think that's clubs in our league spend 4 times what we do on playing budgets! Bad day today but I've seen so many worse days in the last 10 years, it's only last week everyone was saying how good the performance vs Halifax was. Lets get behind the team and go to Keighley in our numbers and support the team!

" Everyone blaming Barry, yet no one questions the players performances, he's not the one missing tackles, dropping the ball, throwing forwards passes?"

 

No he's not BUT he is the one NOT coming up with any "game plan" or how to play a set move. How many times were we camped on their try line and came up with not one set play to get over the line? 6 I think I counted. We get within 5 yards of the line and our ***** drop out, now that IS down to the coach. The team comes out after half time and their heads are down they don't look like they want to play...again THAT is down to the coach. How many games have you watched when a team that's behind at half time comes out with purpose and fire gee'd up by their coaches chat.

In my opinion B.E. has had enough chance to show what he's capable of doing and he's been found out.

But who in that team on Sunday is really good enough to execute a set move? Our halfback pairing on Sunday was our 4th choice half back and a loanee whos been with us two weeks. Its ok saying were camped on the oppositions line and there's no set play to get over the line, but you have to have the personnel to execute it and get us over the line.

 

You could have had the best set moves in the history of coaching Sunday we still wouldn't have scored and that's simply down to 2 things, without our first choice halfbacks and with Marchy not on the field we have no one to open up a defence.

 

I don't agree that our heads were down and i haven't seen that this season, we have competed in every game this season apart from Leigh away and Sunday. It was just a terrible day at the office all teams have them, I cant honestly see how anyone can question the team is not playing for the coach. What about all the times we have come back from 18 nil down to win games or to snatch a bonus points, no one can question the spirit in the team or the will to fight or the character of the team, its been evident all season from both the Leeds and our own Hunslet players.

 

But again its all down to opinions and i respect yours, we all pay our money and we all have different opinions, weather you want Barry out, in, whatever, we need to all stick by the club and support the team. We are 5 points off a playoff place and have 9 crucial games to come.

 

I personally cant wait for Keighley! Come on the Huns!

Lack of Support through dual reg? Our Average crowd is up on last season with still Leigh & Featherstone to play at home, so i am confident it will beat last seasons average by a long way. So lack of support because of dual reg is simply not true when you look at the stats.

I believe the commitment is there in the games, just look at the goal difference, they've had two really bad games this season thats all. But i don't believe everything is rosy within the squad due to D/R (just my opinion). Also, what they're doing on the training ground isn't being put into practice on the pitch, thats down to the players not the coach. We are too slow at getting the ball out wide, because by the time our centres get ball the opponents defence are on us, so its rare the wingers  see any of the ball in the opponents half. the forwards dont have players backing them up so its easy for the opponents defence to tackle us, we've no kicking game to pressure the opposition with or without grimmer & helliwell. The players should have an idea on plays of how to open up defences, they've all been playing long enough (amatuer & semi-pro), even by watching rugby on tv. Sport today means if your team doesn't perform, its the coach/manager who takes the fall for it.
