Hunslet Game.

89 posts in this topic

I thought that Gallagher was very influential and we had Brown to thank for having the nous to follow his rampages. Our other star halves haven't seemed to understand this requirement yet. In fact, to offer maybe unwelcome criticism, I still wonder just what it is that justifies Hyde's place in the team whenever fit. It can't be favouritism surely?

 

Another gripe that I have to get off my chest is why is GM the only person that I know who thinks that playing Craven on the wing and Morton at full back a good idea. Morton is a good wingman but not a good full back, and vice versa with Craven who is wasted on the wing. Craven was voted an outstanding full back in our division last year, yet GM says he isn't a full back - clearly he knows better and what we believe we are seeing is simply a figment of our collective imaginations. it's a nonsense and GM's stubbornness in continuing with this switch in position isn't improving the fans' love and respect for him one iota. Sometimes you have to admit that you are wrong about something.

 

Overall the performance was OK with a couple of outstanding contributions. The ref made some mistakes that might have been crucial but nothing like as many as the players made; he will learn and improve, lets' just hope they will too.

 

Finally, does anyone know why Schofield wasn't playing?

GM has a past record of dropping people when they haven't played particularly badly - I suppose he would claim the end justified the means, and of course it lends credence to the policy of squad rotation (tell that to Akaidere). Can't understand why JS has re-signed though - got to be more of the same next year.

no, you lost because your team was poor. Only one team in it for me. Dewsbury had all the field position and eventually made it pay.

The key moment was your full backs "knock on". Dewsbury were just starting to gain the upper hand and it gave Hunslet some incentive to score from that set. Dewsbury lost a bit of confidence and when Dewsbury forced Keinhorst into touch conceding a penalty when the ref hadn't called held, Hunslet again scored from that set.

I was impressed how the Rams got back into the game but Hunslet were lucky to be within 4 points.

yeah Hunslet who have 11 bonus points, a points difference better than 5/6 teams above them were lucky to be so close to the superstars of Dewsbury...

Hunslet issue hasn't been letting in points or not staying the battle its been keeping hold of the ball. Hunslet's completion rate in the first half will have been 30/35 Max, hence why you had all the ball & why Hunslet looked tired at the end of the game. Second half when this was fixed up, I can only recall 1 knock on so completion will have been 90+, the game came towards Hunslet, they just left themselves with to much to do.

Got to agree with BSJ Craven should be at fullback, Gallagher had one of his best games so far this season.

Brown could have had 4 tries if only.........but good effort from him he looked completely knackered at the end.

A good win in the end

One thing with JSchofield is his defence is weak and whilst he can create tries, his defence and attempts to throw ambitious passes and go for interceptions costs tries as well. Hyde is solid and an organiser who does not do a lot wrong. Schofield just needs to not try too hard, it's the c word again. Composure which is what experienced players have.

And James Craven has it as shown by how he dealt with the drop out at the end of the game whereas Morton let the ball go into touch for a 40/20 and threw out an unnecessary offload towards the end of the game. And threw a similar pass out against York which cost us a try. Hence why I think Morton should be on the wing and more composed Craven at FB.

But I'm not the coach.

None of them are perfect and I agree that Schofield's defence could be better. Thankfully he wasn't playing yesterday or he might have thrown out an overambitious pass that could have led to an interception try........................oh, just a minute.

 

Hyde's kicking game is rubbish, he lacks any creativity and doesn't back up, but at least he's sound, so that's OK.

 

Nitpicking I know, but some players just get dropped more easily than others. Read my sig to understand my viewpoint.

Agree with BSJ I can't work out the Craven Morton switch. Neither looks comfortable. As for Hyde I wouldn't even call him organized. He shuffles ball left and right offers little. Honestly I'd be disappointed to see him here next year. Is he the type of player that could help us catch up to the top 5 ?

Ramite I spoke to Karl after the match outside the bailey bar and the words he said to me where "Am going to be all right". I think it was just a hard bump to the nogging as he looked fine after the match in the Royal suite. I've no news on Tom but he seemed in high spirits before and after the match.

Tom is always in high spirits when I talk to him.

Yes - about that. Journeyman winger who's had more clubs than Tiger Woods, nippy enough but not exactly Martin Offiah, given five yards on the intercept and nobody got within a country mile of him. The same player, Mapals gave Morton ten yards when we played them at Hunslet and caught him with embarrassing ease Actually the only available player who seems to have the pace to run down opposition wingers is Keiron Hyde.

When was the last winger we had that had real pace?

Brynn could go the length, but your namesake was quick.

I think the 2 we had in 2000 are the best I can remember. Ady Flynn and Richard Baker (from Hunslet!!).

 

Alex Godfrey wasn't slow either but allegedly he had something special in his diet.

Rob Worrincy. ? Batley have some quick backs. No idea if any are signed up.

I'd like to see two quality centres signed instead.

A few good past wingers have been mentioned.But for me nobody can touch or catch.

Eddie Rombo.I can remember his debut for dews.at scarborough pirates.

He scored two fantastic tries.what a  smile he had after that game and many others.

Did'nt think the rams budget could stretch to that level of quality?

I remember watching that game on BSB in my local.

My brother said, i dont know why weve signed this leeds reject, and then he ran the length of the field for his first try and dragged 4 defenders over the line for his second (facts may have been embelished for dramatic impact)

It was a great try.  

 

He also scored a fantastic try against Hunslet at Elland Road, taking the ball behind his own line and going the length of the field.

I watched that game against the pirates in the Taverners and it was packed out. Shame Scarborough never made it really, would have been a great summer rugby away day.

I think that was the first 105 metre try i ever saw, and the way he cut inside at the halfway line just showed what a class player he was.

I think the try was on youtube too.
