fev away. team and predictions

260 posts in this topic

deep down hand on heart, i see us losing by 30points. fev are a top quality side and we are never great away from home. we would have to produce our best performance of the season to get even a bp. as for the team i would hope big red is back in for flynn with mossop going on the wing, briscoe will be out so that leaves a place on the bench for walne and i would bring dowes back in as well for the suspended olstrum.

Olstrum won't be suspended for Fev as his hearing won't be until a week tomorrow

Maybe a bad thing - rather miss Fev away than a vital game at home to Dews . But that's the rub I guess .

I've just watched the highlights Lee and your left side defence was none existant.    It looked as if no-one wanted to tackle big Bostock and he lumbered over for two tries.    They certainly didn't have to work too hard for their 60 points did they?

Keith I cannot bring myself to watch it again mate :-( it was bad enough on sunday. We struggled big style without Harrison, Mossop, Dawson and Casey's kicking game. Didn't help with Danny Jones going off before half time and not being able to return.

There are a good few players who just arn't good enough in this league and we are paying for taking the moral high ground re feeder club/dual regging or whatever you want to call it. Although having said that Holty quite rightly withdrew from talks with Wigan as they were going to FORCE him to play two or three players they offered each week at the expense of squad lads, which isn't right whichever way you look at it!

Lets face it Haven won on sunday with a big dollup of Saints help from what I heard on the radio...I wish we had that help available to us ;-(

Ho hum

Even an early plea would start after Fev match as all non SL offences are dealt with on the second Tuesday after the match

Last season we would have been concerned about Olstrum facing a ban but this season we have enough cover to get by without his services.

10/07/11 Karl got two matches - Rochdale v Workington Town, nothing else as far as I can discover. Therefore he can go for the early guilty plea.

Charlo in the star hoping Briscoes injury isn't as bad as feared ( let's hope so ) . Also , believe it or not , talked about errors and penalties ... Who woulda thunk it ? And also mentioned the ' team on paper ' . But you get no points for that . And that Karl is looking at a two gamer , and might be a few chucked in to go to Fev . Mentioned Walne to , I presume he's been injured as he's on loan and was MOM v Leigh and then vanished ?

I suppose he could also have talked about misplaced aggression as well.   Yes, we want our lads to be tough and not only stand up to the opposition but get on top of them.     That has to be controlled though not just off the cuff aggression where penalties are given away.   An example being at the end.   Did Karl need to to drop Houghton at that stage and get himself sent off and possibly miss two games?     If that had been in our own half that penalty could have cost us the bonus point.

A guess at the probable Featherstone combination for Sunday, assuming all are fit.

Full Back - Ian Hardman

Wings - Will Sharp & Tommy Saxon

Centres - Vincent Mellars & Greg Worthington

Half Backs - Andy Kain & Liam Finn

Props - Steve Crossley & Anthony English

Hooker - Ben Kaye

Second Rows - James Lockwood & Tim Spears

Loose Forward - Matty Dale

Subs - Andrew Ellis (Hooker), Jack Bussey, Lamont Bryan & Andy Bostock

England looks to be out for the season so he def won't be in the line up and probably played his last game for us. That team looks about right though besides engy but heppy will be back by the sounds of it.Some of the predictions on here are a bit wild IMO we will not hammer you as some posts seem to suggest. We are a shadow of our former selves at present(don't know why that is but rumours suggest unrest in the camp). Just depends which Fev turn out if its a donny York Fev then we will get beat if its a we want to win the league Fev then we might be back in business but I wont hold my breath on that second comment.Also I doubt this result will effect your season guys as I think you will stay up easily.

Thanks for the update, I take it that heppy is Jonny Hepworth. Will Matt James be the replacement Prop and has Mariano returned to Wakefield for good?

Yeah jonny Hepworth and we don't know about Mariano it could be a swap back and forth with mellars by the looks of it. It just depends which one of the players wakey want each week by the looks of it.

How times change.

60pt thrashings were to be handed out to workington both home and away by us according to yourself on a pre season thread on this board

Well i went to Barrow and saw a team that looked more like a group, looked more focused and looked like they had got their appetite back after what looks like a royal roasting occured following the donny home defeat

Workington are in poor form and we finally might be hitting the straps - Worky are no barrow though who in my opinion were the poorest side we have played so far but fev more than comfortable

Fev 48 workington 18

Dont want to sound negative just realistic. Damage limitation this sunday. I'm sure the lads will put a big effort in but its the toughest game of the season and after last Sundays lacklusture performance i would be happy with a good show and respectable scoreline with no injuries. Then bring on the rams to complete the double.

just my opinion but our centres get nowhere near enough ball to waste our best player out there.
