In the wrong direction?

Another disappointing loss 10 - 40.  As we found last week, it is hard to play catch-up (from 6-22 ht deficit) at this level, particularly when you gift trie, apparently by sloppy play after some  hard work.   Since our heroics against unstoppable Leigh and a run of 3 wins we now have only one point to show from nine possible, in three games -  5 points adrift of safety - 4 off the bottom place and only 2 bonus points.   We knew it would never be easy and I know we have a few injuries, but something seems amiss.

 

Ian Talbot said after a recent loss that the players were not keeping to the game plan.   We do not seem to be creating much other than high bombs and the defence is creaking.

Any thoughts on what's going wrong?

 

We can be sure that Bobby will have Raiders up for our visit next week.  He has made a difference since his arrival and a bonus point today at Keighley.  We need to be up for it and the next games too - get smart or the season will be over at the end of the next six weeks!

Our worst performance of the season. We seemed devoid of ideas when attacking and weak in defence. Paul Cooke ran the show for Doncaster and we never put any pressure on him at all. I don't think that he was tackled once. I know we have a few injuries but if we carry on in this manner then I can't see us winning another match.

No excuses, well beaten. Paul Cooke reminded me of Trent Barrat when he played for Wigan. Way too good for us, and well backed up by his team.Absolute gold dust for Donny.
