hopefully a few more will turn up next time not far short of five and half thousand is disgraceful with no real away following, widnes were awesome at times and tore the broncos to shreds on the flanks. the spine of the team were tremendous and we bombed at least another 4 tries. i feel really sorry for the broncos as i want them to do well but in reality they will be lucky to finish anywhere but 14th this season.

For any of the Hull mob on here, just thought you might like to know that Danny Tickle kicked 10 from 11 today from all over the park. ;)

Well played Widnes, The London gameplan is essentially carry out the basics well, Hope the opposition has an off day and for it to be close in the final 20 mins. None of the three conditions happened with the game killed off in the final 20 minutes of the first half.

For opposition fans think of a London game as more akin to a mid-table Championship club taking you on in the Challenge Cup. It's a potential banana skin only if you let it be so. Tony Rea will no doubt get some flack from the Barnet believers but he had broad shoulders and would rather take this from the few than have it directed against the Young players who are having it hard as it is.

London will take a good few spankings this season, nothing for Widnes to take from this other than a win.

I wasn't there but I know a mis-match when I see one.

 

Read my many past posts on Widnes, I am not a basher, but I am a realist.

No thanks. Never had trouble dropping off to sleep, I'm a grafter.

 

The point is, what Widnes can "take away from this" cannot be discerned purely from your armchair.  It's a bit of a lazy and cliched thing to say. It sometimes rings true but like I say, you can't really make that call unless you went.

 

We were at a canter. It was our first game and we no doubt got a lot of the rust out of our system without harming or hurting any of our players. This is good for morale. There's quite a bit to take from the game. We tried stuff, we got used to each other again in a (semi) competitive environment, our new players no doubt learned about their team mates more than can be done on a training pitch and we're one game on looking like a real team. From a competition stance, it wasn't much of one, but it was a very good run out. From the fans perspective, its great to get the first points on the board. Tickle got 10/11 kicks from all over the park. Brown's kicking was superb. Spirits are high. We'll take that away.

maybe a few more 'fans' should show up to the games to justify your SL place!

Widnes add nothing to SL FACT!

The important phrase in there is "we were at a canter", just from that simple phrase you back up my original post.

You seem to be labouring under the false impression that I'm ever going to bother wasting page after page debating with someone with the mental capacity of a Jeremy Kyle show guest.

 

Don't.

Only if that's the one single thing I said in my post and ignored everything else, yes. I'm not saying it was a great contest. But then, there were things to take away from it because it wasn't.

 

You've basically fallen back on a lazy cliche and are too proud to admit you don't know enough to have an informed opinion on it.

I hope it was a case of Widnes being very good rather than Broncos being that bad. Obviously the Broncos side is poor and will get plenty of hammerings this season but they can't have expected Widnes to be one of the bullies. Quite a few folk had Widnes down for relegation (foolishly in my view).

Putting the word "fact" in capital letters is hardly a convincing argument. Self-evidently, it is not a "fact". I happen not to be a  Widnes fan but your arguments against them display an ignorance and lack of education which I find disheartening. They merit their place. I would hope to see London survive in the top tier but, like many others, fear the worst for them.

Poor and unacceptable really, the only 'positive' you could say was it was the first game and shows the board how much improvement is needed in the team. Well done to Widnes.
