Couldn't get to Workington but they seem a form team at the mo so to go down by one score seems a decent effort. Some tough games coming up but I think we will finish comfortably in the play offs

I thought your guys put a very honest shift in for the shirt today. You lifted when Rowe and Hirst came on and both half backs threw everything at us Black with his running game Leatherbarrow with his kicking game. Thought we just defended outstandingly and got more from our centre second rows in terms of attacking options. You've to many talented honest professionals to end up in the mire

I think we played ok in parts. Just a dodgy first ten at start of second half left us with too much to find. I think a couple of wins and a run of bonus points will probably be enough but still a long way to go to get them.

Sounds like we didn't play particularly well, but Workington are a much improved side this season. Leigh only won by 6 points up there a few weeks back. Very rare that I'd ever confess to this, but I'm satisfied with a bonus point from today's game.

Black was good - we just don't need his constant appeals to the ref ... Overall a good game between 2 equal sides ... Surely you have better than Keegan hurst though ?

I thought it would be hard going at Workington  so a bonus point isn't too bad.Workington  have had a lot of close games this time.

Black was exercising his right as captain to talk to the referee, and it wasn't constant, it was only over one specific incident. As for Hirst, he has been great for us since his return on loan. Today wasn't his best but it happens.

What's with doom and gloom lost 1 game in last 5 picked up a bonus point,we have stopped teams from getting bonus points too,we win 4 games in a row we are deep in relegation we are 6th 1 point behind the rams,we played a much improved Workington team that are moving up like we have pushed up into play off spots,I would be more worried if like fev lost to Rochdale 2nd from bottom who don't seem to be improving like Workington

According to League Express, Keegan is struggling with a knee injury and it was hoped that Mullally or Johnson would be available. As it turned out Keegan had to put the shirt on.  Let's hope he hasn't made it worse.  Seems a bit strange letting Leary go out on loan with Brennan already out if this is the case.

Not managed to get my league papers,but think if has got a knee injury good on him putting his hand up to play people think played ###### but don't know going in with a knock or two,but might have been thought he would be ok to play and trying to keep others happy with Leary and Brennan,with Brennan didn't think was cutting the mustard with performances he is only 20,but looked to be an aggressive and destructive prop,getting some good reviews and was champ 1 player of week twice hope comes back ready to rip trees up,thought Leary looked good in games he played but with applegarth back hard to get him in

Not so much doom and gloom as recognition that it is all very close in the middle section of he division. I suspect we might be playing well enough to be ok, as Workington are probably the form team at the moment, and we could have nicked it.

Shouldn't be doom n gloom on what I saw . You were a well structured side , with a pair of halves and a back three to garner more than enough points to be fine.

Looking at league table I think bottom 4 is boxed off,it's that 5th relegation spot we've to be worried about apart from the top 4 clubs of course!!! Every body saying you've a lot harder run in than most clubs but they're all hard games in this league,to be honest I think you'll get the points you'll need like us because I think you can go to Sheffield & fev & get a result!!!

I think yesterday showed 2 very well organised, well coached teams. As you guys have said were probably the in form team as of late and if we'd had vievers in for pre season we'd be comfortably safe this year. You deserved your bonus point and battled to the very end. Hope you stay up as I like kear as a coach. Good luck for the rest of the year and let's all hope we get to see each other next season.

Happy with a bonus point in the end but should have had all 3 but for a few silly mistakes and questionable decisions by the ref.

Our reversion back to one man rugby for whatever reason was our ultimate undoing.

Credit to Workington though, they looked a far better side than the one we played earlier in the season amd will stay up on that showing.

Massive month coming up, could be back in the relegation dog fight if we dont win a couple of games against the 'big 4'.

Must have been better than listening to your one eyed fans yesterday. according to them we were offside at every play the ball and all our passes were forward. Me i think you deserved to win as Workington were the better side on the day. We never threw in the towel and to be honest i think the scoreline flattered us a little but like other fans glad we came away with a bonus point . Well played and good luck for the rest of the season .

Agreed Marko9 we can win on Sunday just need to get more from our bench players as in the last two games they have had little impact and we have to stop slipping back to the one man rugby that got us into trouble earlier in the season.

To add to the defeat, Miles G is likely to be out for a while now with a broken thumb. Just seen on Twitter.

Oh no not Miles ! now i am worried . He is our only real strike player and with the next four games being Halifax and Leigh at home Sheffield and Fev away i wonder where our points will come from. The only other game that Miles missed was Sheffield at home with him we probably would have beaten them. May i suggest JK admits he was wrong and go and get Conner from Hudds for a month. A centre too please. A little quality wins matches look at workington on Sunday with Jack Murphy, Dom Manfredi, and Declan Hulme they made a massive difference to their team. I do not like DR but staying up is everything to our club. Hopefully this is where having a quality coach makes the difference.
