surprised to see him playing at loose forward on Sunday ? the guys just come back from a big lay off and they put him in the pack ? be better off leaving him out in the centres , at least out there he wont have to do much considering the amount of ball they get from the halves :download:

think DR was at 13 as we were down to the bare bones but he did well put a few big hits in against a big strong team I'm just glad to see him back he will be a top performer next season

We could do with working on getting the ball across the line qicker that gives the likes of miller and Flynn the space to run

we got a master class in how quick to pass the ball yesterday. Thats the way to do it and thats the intensity levels needed to do well in this league.

Right again Scott but that's down to the quality of players in the key creative areas . We may not have the best outside backs , but they get very little good ball and zero space to show whatever they have . How often do you see an overlap , or a centre off a shift scything through ? We've worked a lot on defence , come the preseason we need to put lots of work into our attack . I hope we get a quality half at one end of the equation , and a quality outside back at the other end . We're just two or three backs in key areas from a sharper team . Quick passing beats any players legs , and class passers make their runners look very dangerous . Another thing we saw yesterday is that modern rugby league is a game where last tackle kicks are the primary attacking force . You see that every week in the NRL and SL . Five strong drives and then try and score off a kick . If you're good at it it's a hell of a weapon that's nearly impossible to defend against .

Rooney was at 13 so he could get involved as and when he wanted - as much or as little - obvious place to play him in his comeback .

Who's on holiday this week?

We badly need callum at scrum half that is his best position and i think thats where he likes to play,and we see the best of lupton,

Callum just likes to play rugby i think he's better at hooker but towns best team at the minute needs him at 7 as he's the best option we have and needs a settled role instead of changing from one game to the next

You can't choose when to and not to get involved at 13 when the team is constantly defending. You HAVE to get involved regardless of whether you want to or not.

I hope you are right Riggy. This is the first of 4 games in 11 days for us after having just played 3 of the top 5 in 8 days. Full-time SL players don't get asked to do that!!!

Ridiculous when the Keighley game should've been scheduled immediately after the postponed fixture.

We now end up suffering towards the end of the season just because Keighley didn't fancy coming up midweek (despite the fact we had to go there midweek) and the RFL didn't have the balls to make them.

a bonus point on sunday, a win vs the cougars and were safe with plenty to spare.

I think we're safe anyway although not mathematically. Hunslet still have to play York and Swinton still have to play Barrow and they can't both win. A couple of home wins should see us in the play offs though.

Just make sure you make them pay dearly by at least a 40 point drubbing :)

Interesting to see how well the Coyle boys play on Sunday. James has been a regular since his move.

i never rated James when he was at Barrow but I must say he looked fairly useful in the 2nd half against us the other week ;)

I hope the Coyle brothers are playing on Sunday . Funny how they've hit the rocks with them around and Helliwell and Grimshaw injured .

If Millers hearing is not till next tuesday i expect he will be able to play at Hunslet, so lets hope either briscoe or carter are fit,or better still both.

If all our fit it would be good in the near future to see Briscoe at fullback and Carter and Miller in the centres just to have a look at something new and fresh with the main pressure off .I do like Hulme , but look at what you have in house before recruiting - try someone in a different position , they may take to it ?If you don't try you don't know ? Try people in positions , like Connor on the wing to , with an eye on next year as well .

Connor would be wasted to me on the wing!! He is showing every game to me he is a decent player and given the Chance can be creative

I see him as a goal kicking asset , but being an overseas player of some pedigree I'm sorry I can't say I've seen anything out of the ordinary from him .Ive backed him all the way , but he's not really influencing games . May be his bad luck , but when you're brought in from his background , and with decent raps , you'd expect more in my opinion . I take into account his service of course , but even so there've been minimal moments that have made you sit up and say wow . We're crying out for new blood in the centres who can give the necessary try scoring return at this level .

Gotta back him to the season ends these few games I hope he shows why he was sought after at the start of the season

Agreed , maybe not his fault the spotlight is on him because of an accent , but it is , and he's yet to show why we brought him in and with such fanfare ? He is completely muscle bound , he must be able to run , so maybe just get him on the end of stuff and say run that way fast in a straight line !!

In fact I'd be really interested to hear people's opinions of Red and Connor looking ahead ....If they wanted it would you keep them ??
