Sheffield look like winning the GF again, 4 or 5 ex Rams in the team as well. Will be strange seeing Pat not wearing a Rams shirt. Talent right across the park means I can't see a past an eagles win.

Rams 16- eagles 46.

We'll be fortunate to get within a sniff of a BP I reckon. Sheffield are a really solid team, nothing fancy but very well drilled and effective with no real weaknesses all round. Add to that they are our bogey side and it may seem like a long afternoon. It would be even worse if we get outnumbered by their fans. :help:

 

 

Rams 16 - 36 eagles

 

Att 745

I have no real confidence for this game and see Sheffield taking the victory by 20 plus points. I just hope the some of the remaining teams facing both Hunslet & York in the final run in have similar winning margins. Otherwise we could be doomed!

Despite the above I will be there on Sunday, and will be happy to eat my words should the lads prove me wrong

I think Dewsbury has already won its last game this season; in fact I could say we'll get no more points this term!

 

Dewsbury 18 - 36 Sheffield

 

Att: 756

 

It's doubtful that I will be in attendance; a family gathering awaits in exclusive Round-hay!

With a depleted side and weather looking good, it looks like a hard game ahead. Thin on the bench so a BP at best.

Your lads read this site, for goodness sake give them some hope, at least tell them taxi drivers in Sheffield are good union members and are on strike tomorrow, so only pushbike users will be supporting the Eagles.....

Looking like a good BP for the boys today.

 

You never know, now the relegation pressure is off, we might start playing some open expansive care-free rugby.

(Damn, this Ciders strong stuff)

Thought it was a good performance overall, again composure lacking at times, few times we got into their 20 and didnt complete the sets, not sure why Kane Bentley was kicking, hope he either improves or stops. Sheffield were the better team, took their chances well and had 3 game breakers in QLT, Taulupapa and Yere. They slowed our PTB down and played their own ball quicker than we did. Stringer and Battye being particularly good at slowing the PTB or flopping depending on your viewpoint.

For the Rams, thought Brwon and Gallagher had great games, Craven and Pryce look a good combination down the left, for the Pryce bashers, another try and made Craven's try, as well as putting him through on a few occasions, Hyde played well and a good performance from just about everyone. A few rubs of the green and it could have been closer but that's the way it goes, still a bit light in the forwards compared to Sheffield, but no lack of effort and commitment right to the end. Well earned bonus point and keeps us in the mix with some results going our way.

What happened at the end? Seemed a few fans were unhappy with Taulapapa, saw him make an inappropriate gesture and then he seemed to be ready to fight them? Think everyone should calm down a bit and Taulapapa should just walk away.

Got to agree thought the lads worked vey hard in the second half to earn their bonus point. First half going down Browns side thought we looked very dangerous, second half hardly used it, come on guys think about it. Apart from some poor tackling in the centre of the park, not bad at all.

As for the ref and linesman, wouldn't pay them at all, what a waste of space.

Linesmen/referee never saw a forward pass all match - including the huge one for our second try. Looked as though Pryce was nearly over the fence when he put the ball down for his try but we'll take it. Sheffield were so much better and quicker than us in every department (JC excepted) I really didn't think we'd get a try. I doubt the Eagles were anywhere near their best, but they were never in any danger - I can see them retaining their title this year. Finegan looked a different player to the one who was abject in a Ram's shirt - wonder why.

Fine gain was never put under pressure defensively. His man marking for us was hopeless!

Still think we have better wingers in Craven (full-back), Buchanan, Morton and Scott

Thought Pryce was miles offside for his try, but glad it was given. It sets the donny game up nicely!

That might explain why the linesman stayed infield after the try was scored.

Decent attendance, but where did they all hide?

 

Sheffield were vastly superior in every department. In particular they were extremely well organised which I guess must be down to coaching - moved up together; defended together; slowed down the ptb just enough; quick ptb when in possession; sharp accurate passing etc. I wonder how we can reach that level - anyone know?

We were up the top end and would perhaps agree GOR from what we could see, but that could be seen as justice for all those Sheffield got away with!

 

This plus the offsides, crossing etc etc...

 

I have to say I didn't think we had a BP in us and wouldn't even get close. After their 1st try our heads seemed to drop. Sure the noise the crowd made, especially re the decisions of the officials fired us up. Credit to the team as they never gave up. Thats hat eating time...!

 

Craven is a class act and fully deserved his score and MoM, hope we can retain him next year. Not always been Pryces biggest, (like others) but thought he did ok yesterday.

 

Were safe now and that means a lot especially as we did it on our own merit and not reliant on other results. Who knows a win against Donny and we might be enjoying playoff rugby for the first time in ages.

A good half back pairing and forwards running onto the ball. Brown played well but some of hyde's passing was pedestrian although his kicking was better than in recent weeks. Hemmingway and Thakeray at half back and Brown at loose forward next season

Good news there then, he could easily have taken his bat and ball home after the way he has been messed about. First time this season he has been given enough space to do his job and all credit to KP for that - seems like he might be growing on the Rams faithful.
