Wine gum ?

 

Might have a soft centre...

 

Think we might have a more experienced side out this week, none of the young lads deserve to be left out, but its a long season & we need to keep everyone fit & on their toes

could also play Teenage Rampage if the young lads play as well as last week.

Nice one Andy!

How about:

'My boy lollipop' by Millie Small

'Chocolate girl' by Deacon Blue

'Bubble Gum' by Fabolous

Fair bit of interest in the town after the good start. I know one or two who are going who have not been for a while. Dare I mention it but is it far too early to think about going the league season unbeaten? Probably jinxed us now!

I've managed to persuade a couple more to come as well. Seems to be dead easy to get a mate or two to come when we're winning.

Really looking forward to the match today. A real opportunity to kick on from last week's performance and show this league that the Knights mean business.

I think I'd describe todays performance as professional. At 40-0 at half time we could easily let the foot off the gas and let them score a few tries, but we kept going which is great to see even if it wasn't the most exciting match ever.

Hard not to feel a little sorry for the Scorpions, they were out on their feet before half time and their heads seemed to drop.

Got to credit the goal line defence again, absolutely brilliant.

I agree that it was good to see the team continue to play to their structures and not become individuals once the victory was assured. The backing up was excellent , off loads were plentiful and confidence must be sky high in the camp just now. Just hope we haven't peaked too soon , but then who says we have peaked yet.

 

It was nice to see the "old guard" out on the pitch to guide their younger colleagues. Very happy to see Harry Carter get a try , he can scoot along very smarty when the chance arises. All the young lads seem to have a turn of pace. Jack Aldous had a cracking game ( as always!) so his try was well deserved too.  

 

Will be some difficult choices for the coach to make before the next match. Isn't it great to have a fit bunch of players for once , and all on our books officially.

Well done to everyone at the cub for a sensational start to the season.

 

Thought the players got a great round of applause from the crowd today at the end of the match.  And the opponents were given a fine round of appreciation too , which was the least they deserved as it cannot have been their happiest experience but they stuck at it and didn't resort to any obvilous underhand tactics.

Very impressed again, agree with Press MOM with Haynsey, thought Ed Smith had a really good game despite a couple of handling errors, main thing at half time was keeping them to 0 & we did it, credit to the Scopions lads for keeping going.

 

Great to see a lot of ex-players in the bar, really good atmosphere in there nowadays, more people very welcome

Think yesterdays performance could be described as ruthless.Could easily have taken the foot of the gas 2nd half.We kept the scoreboard ticking over and scored some cracking trys.Great to see Elvis once again to the fore and James Haynes looking like he is enjoying life at the Knights.Obviously far more sterner tests to come.Can only beat what is in front of you.Its feet on the ground time Keep these performances coming.Really looking forward to the Swinton game.Got a feeling its going to be a cracker

A very good post H.P. I agree with every word you've said in there. I would just like to add that it's a refreshing change to feel like we could stand an injury or two without really weakening the team, no matter who it may be. Not that we want any of course, heaven forbid, and I don't want to tempt fate, but I think you know what I mean. Let's face it, it's pretty impossible to go through a season without at least a few, as we know already!

Don't think we should get too carried away just yet anyway, looked at the Scorpions team on Sunday & didn't actually recognise any names in their 17

 

Had a look at the other match reports yesterday & you realise the likes of Skolars, Oldham, Oxford etc have some decent players & match winners who have done the business at our level before - e.g. Skolars had Ryan Mac, Lamont Bryan, Michael Worrincy & Dennis Tuffour etc in their losing side

Also had Telly Pelo, who played well against us for Toulouse on a couple of occasions and Mufaro Muvududu, ex Fev. Good result for Oldham. I reckon results will have to be earned against the Skolars this season.

Having said all that, we have a team made of a bit sterner stuff this time around and a lot of what exudes from Patto and Ian Morrison helps on that score.

Had to chuckle when I saw Lee Radford was unhappy with some of his players at the weekend and their input...

I think this league does offer a bit of everything, we ourselves are a blend of experience and youth. Just now though, we shouldn't be overly worried about the opposition, surely they'll be worrying about out team. Look at the players on the bench this week , waiting to be brought into the action. I dont think too many of our opponents would think them an easy option when they come into the fray.

 

The past few years have seen many close games but our wins haven't been numerous. However, I've always managed to come away happy so long as there has been some enterprising play , by whichever side. I can take a beating by a better team so long as they do it playing flowing quick rugby. Being battered by a bigger set of players isn't quite such "fun". So its nice to see matches this season , at a slightly less intense level, where we are able to showcase our flair and energy. Am sure the majority of this squad are welll capable of playing at the higher level but they will enjoy the opportunity this season brings. There will be some tougher tests than we faced this week, it would be foolish to think otherwise. The coaches job is to keep the players focused and playing to their strengths.  We, as fans can get a little "giddy"  (if I'm allowed to pinch the word used by the coach on Sunday)  

 

My final comment for today is just to praise the attitude and style of Lee Patterson. Always impressed with his workrate, constant backing up and tackling. You just know when he takes the ball, he'll straighten his run and drive through the opposition line. We used to grumble about our forwards taking the ball from a standing start and getting nowhere, Times have changed for the better.

Going off this point, I think we all need to calm down a little bit when Morrison gets the ball, we can't expect him to leave a trail of players behind him every time he gets the ball. Of course it's hard not to with the size and power of the guy but we'll put too much expectation on him and if he has a poor game it'll be the end of the world and we'll be calling for him to be dropped.
