Never thought it would come to this, but I have nothing but praise for the performance displayed at Wigan by our rivals down the road.

That is what the game is all about

Well done and congratulations to the coach. (you know who I mean)..

A excellent game of RL. That game was worthy as a final, let alone a quarter final. Impressed from a Feb fan.

Only when his team are favourites. Today he was the underdog.

I think everyone is behind Fev but why people get upset because someone want to comment about a mistake the club made 12 months ago is unbelievable. The club decided that coach couldn't take us any further they were wrong we are now rebuilding because we made a mistake with the new coach and we all hope it works out but we don't need to forget what DP did for this club on the field. Anyway a win tomorrow and we will all be talking about our win

Trouble is though theyve been commenting and moaning for over a year now , it gets a bit boring after a while ,and does not help us go forward with all the negativity.

I feel as strongly about Daryl Powell going to Cas as anyone and like everyone else we're all entitled to an opinion and I think it was a mistake but good luck to Cas and I hope they go on to win the Challenge cup.But I hope in 2 years time we're singing the praises of Andy Hay and we have a team to challenge theirs on a regular basis in Super League and them games will be a battle royal,because that's what really matters now and that destination has to be our focus.So congratulations to Cas for such a good performance yesterday and a little mention of praise for Leigh's performance on Friday night against the Rhinos,which was a credit to what an in form Championship side can bring to the table.

This is my impression of what happened last year. DP resigned and took up an opportunity with Cas. The board DID NOT get rid of him, therefore how was it their fault? Millard's intended replacement gave back word at the eleventh hour and ultimately the die was cast. All the board did was not to stand in DP's way and that allowed him to coach in the SL where he quite rightly belongs. Quite admirable I would have thought.

So let's not blame the club. He was a very good coach at the Rovers, but as someone has already said he was on good money for championship standards. As 'Dydo' said he's gone now and he probably took the club as far as he could anyway.

My point is that his legacy only needed a tweak, (listen to what he says to the very intrepid interviewer at the end of his time, at the Batley game) but events subsequently have meant that there have been wholesale changes to a (lets face it) squad that was at the top of its game against Sheffield at home at the arrse end of last season. Had Bostock and Spears been available for the Batley game we may have held out, however it's all ifs and buts, if my auntie had a scrotum she'd be my uncle.

It's not easy turning allegiance and supporting Cas after 42 years of being a Featherstone fan, I would and could never do it. However I must say that their performance yesterday was very impressive.

It's hard enough living in Cas when they're winning. Loads of middle aged blokes now wearing the Tigers tops looking like bay windows with the extra room at the front for wok smuggling ( it's a good job I'm as slim as a pin) yet two years ago you couldn't see a shirt for love nor money.

Daryl Powell left on mutual terms. He'd won the league with Fev 3-4 times on the bounce. He needed a bigger challenge, so Cas was a good choice as they needed a coach. In my own opinion we as a team need time to mold together. It's no good when every player has to look over their shoulder because they are in danger of been replaced. Same set every match and we'll do ok.

RUBBISH. DPs was with us 5 years he did well for us and we did ell for him, his time was up and he moved at the right time for him and us. The mistake was appointing Bastian who was a disaster and was clueless so much so he nearly destroyed the team. Thankfully the board acted on it very quickly and rectified it by appointing Andy Hay, he has a difficult job of re-building the team mid- season and sorting out some of the mess left by Bastian but seems to be getting on with it very well, he has impressed me so far. Feel sorry for the next club that gets stuck with JB wouldnt trust him with an U8s team

The thing that I get the sense of is that he went out of his way to upset people and he had favourites.

Iv heard all that mate but im basing my opinion on what i saw on the pitch. The players looked clueless in attack , unfit, there body language was terrible, tactically inept, diss-organised, most of the players he brought in were not upto the standard. Andy Hays is slowly but surely sorting the mess out

Having said all that, John Bastian could still have been in charge, whether that would have been a good or a bad thing, with a little more luck against Leigh.

In the cup game Rovers were starting to take control towards the end of the first half. They were hampered by their tries being scored in the corner, and 12 points could have been 18 if scored closer in, but when Andy Ellis broke from inside his own half a try seemed on, but why do we always seem to get Matty Dale or Jack Bussey backing up instead of the speed men? Andy couldn't get the pass out to Mendy on his right so had to give it to Matty who was tackled on the 20. When we lost the ball on the next play they came downfield and they scored instead to level at 12 all. If that 12 pointer had gone the other way Rovers would have gone into the break 18-6 up, and I feel they would have won. In the 2nd half we lost Bostock, Dale and James to injury, which was the reason we lost our impetus.

The following week Rovers were still without Dale, Bostock and James. You can't take Leigh on with a weakened pack!

On top of all that, would we have lost to Doncaster and Dewsbury with Andy Kain in the side, especially with the form he is in at present? Although Andy played the two games against Leigh he was just returning from injury, and was nothing like the world beater he was on Sunday, so would he have made a difference if fully fit?

So, with a bit more luck, Rovers under Bastian might have been unbeaten, or something very near. Would he still have been in charge, and would this have been a good or a bad thing?

Having reviewed the match reports on our defeats, I feel more confident that Rovers can challenge Leigh at the end of the season, as long as we have already had our fair share of injuries, and the plague doesn't continue, especially with regards to Andy Kain!
