26 unanswered points for Dewsbury as they lead 32-18. Think the reality is the players we have aren't good enough for this division. Unless a miraculous set of players come in we are going down.

And we like Anthony Thackeray walk through the line for the 4th time in the game.

Scraped a bonus point as Dewsbury miss a kick on the hooter. 42-30 FT

Conceding 42 points at home to Dewsbury just isn't good enough. Without Harrison it would probably of been more than 50 who got through a ridiculous amount of work.

Sorry mate, that is very negative. Without one fella,Thackeray, completely dominating the game we would have won handsomely. We matched them man for man in most other departments of the game

The Raiders are short of a couple of players who can handle this level of football but we do have good coach who is doing the best he can with the team he has been given.

When you're bottom of the league and conceding 42 points at home and 7 points off safety the general vibes are going to be negative.

We shouldn't let one player do so much damage. 3 of his tries were simple walk ins. As were many of the other Dewsbury tries.

We can't afford to be losing more games. We need a win on sunday or our season may be pretty much done.

Poor tackling, ball watching and ball retention major problems. Too much expectation that the ref should be siding with Raiders, although Rams and Raiders errors were similar and the referee was consistent (his only positive side) even if decisions were strange. The right hand side of Raiders was targeted due to the weakness in it and Raiders have only themselves to blame for the walk in tries by Rams. If the intensity of the first 20 mins had been maintained then a different result would have been on the sheet. Disappointed with the sloppiness of the Raiders and the right result was what occured.

Defensive lapses and trying to be glory boys at time were reasons for defeat today. One day I am sure certain speccies will actually KNOW the laws of the game and understand why a knock-on is a knock-on!!

 

BTW the pitch looked in good nick...

That said, We left it too late by appointing the original (untried at this level) coach in the first place & realistically gave BG too big a task to save us from the drop as the damage was done already by the bad 1st choice coach, call it negative or realistic, it is what it is.

Thought our attack was very good in patches today especially the first 20 mins. Harrison was again outstanding with others playing very well. Thackeray again proved to be barrow's undoing as he has been many times before. The result proved to be a reality check after last weeks confidence booster, last week we defended superbly to win; today our defence was woeful as it has been for the majority of the season, we simply can't afford to concede 42 points and expect to win any game. Bobby's done very well with a squad that are clearly not good enough to stay out of the relegation places. The rfl have decided to restructer the leagues which means a ridiculous 5 out of 14 teams go down. I think it's plainly obvious that without a miracle we will be one of those 5. The duel reg with salford has proved unfruitful in strengthening the squad this is down to many injuries in their squad. Bobby is threatening to get his boots on in the next week or 2, thats how desperate the situation is becoming.

disappointed in todays overall performance especially the tackling, very very poor at times and unless a miracle happens we are destined for the drop ... no two ways about it.

BG will be spitting feathers, our defence was in tatters today. He's got us a lot fitter and we need a bit of new blood to freshen us up.

The fat lady isn't singing yet.

We must be in a position to stop players like Thackeray. He scored 5 out of 7 tries. Liam Campbell also scored a brilliant number 7s try but I'm afraid that Thackeray stood out above every body else.
