Brilliant response

Have just got home to see this shock/fabulous result (38-34).

Look forward to reading more and let's hope this can be the catalyst for a good run in to put the disappointing results of the last weeks behind us.

Those missed bonus points are my main worry.

Well done all involved.

A great display with every player giving 100%. Nearly decided not to go after the second half at Keighley. I can't believe this was the same team that played last week. Best possible  response from the lads. Played some good rugby and it would be difficult to single anyone out but Ryan Millard had the best game I've seen him play this year. I hope this form can  be maintained next week  against Barrow. Really pleasing was that when Rovers took the lead for the first time with less than 10 minutes to go we didn't give in and deserved it when Thompson got the winning try.

Awesome performance! Well done to players and coaches alike.

Brilliant today I think if anything today has made the last 6 weeks or so look even worse, we now know exactly what we are capable of.

Any way time to look forward now not back!

Well done

Well done Hornets,  It must have been a good game, when I could hear the crowd from my garden in Cronkeyshaw. A very good 735 turned up.

The best perfomance at home since we lost to Leigh by 6.The fat lady has sat down again after that. If they had buried us as i'm sure they expected to that would have been that,

Down with a whimper. As it is it should give us the confidence to go down fighting if we have to, and out of the bottom 2.

A total absence of Fev fans in the bar. Their coach gave a gracious speech and was applauded.   

Well played Ian Talbot, Houghy, Rammy, and most of all the players. Please! please! please! 

 Same again next week against Bobby Gouldings Barrow!!! Bring it on.

I suppose that's why we follow Rugby League and Hornets. Who'd have thought It at 3.00 o'clock. I can only assume Fev thought it would be easy. I don't blame them going off our current form, I would have taken a bonus point at any time.

We got off like a house on fire, racking up a 18-0 lead in less minutes than that courtesy of an error free game but obviously you don't get to be second in the league for nothing. Fev raced back at us and in as many minutes were level having decided to attack us down our weaker side. After that the next ten minutes were an arm wrestle and at half time there was nothing between the teams.

We came out after half time in the same vein as the start of the first half and before we knew it we had scored two more tries and had got our noses in front again. It couldn't last in spite of some gritty play and slowly the tide was turned and we again fell behind with about five minutes to go. I was still feeling a bonus point was a good result when we had one final throw of the dice and came up with the match winning try. The last five minutes seemed like an eternity but eventually the hooter went and we could celebrate a rare three points.

A really well earned three points, bags of guts and commitment from all the boys with Ryan Millard outstanding at half back with a match winning performance. We just toughed it out at the end, Fev ended up playing the usual catch up rugby that rarely brings results.

It was a bit disappointing in the bar after the game with hardly any Fev fans to be seen although the Fev Chairman was extremely gracious in defeat.

Same again next week boys. " Onward Hornets, Onwards ".

Fantastic. Well done to everyone at Hornets, I'm still on cloud nine as all the players should be. One of those moments, when the Fev supporters did the Wigan walk, I will cherish for a long time. Thank you.

So, aside from the renewed commitment, no less skill/effort to register 7 tries and being back home, what was the main difference/s to the previous weeks?

The Sheridan/Millard pairing seems to have been one aspect.   Hopefully, we will now build on this for a great run-in and confidence for next season.

Biggest differences for me (there are plenty to go at)

  1. The halfback combo of Ryan & Lewis, although Lewis did find himself stuck on the wing again late on
  2. Millard grabbed hold of the team and the game, and took us around the park like a proper halfback should.
  3. Much more invention and no stupid mistakes with ball in hand (more options used rather than 5 drives and a kick)
  4. Determind and strong defence, with no lapses in concentration
  5. The Saints lads did it tough also, and got stuck in
  6. Having the option of Dandy, Crook & McClurg who all added some creativity
  7. The huge amount of work-rate off the wings in Casey & Dawson who were ever willing and ran strongly all afternoon

I think I could go on, the difference between yesterday and the week before at Keighley was un-real.

Can I just ask, how did Rich Beaumont play? I know it's only his second game in ages, plus the fact that he missed the whole of pre season, but I was just wondering what he played like?

He played really driving the ball in hard and committed to a Hornets cause.

He will certainly be welcome back anytime

What a difference a week makes.

Congratulations to all the team and back room staff.

I was not at the game so if I stay away the results might go in our favour.

Keep up the good work lads. You have proved that you can do it.

Well done indeed to the lads,I almost drove off the road when I got Mad Mal`s text at about 0300 on Monday morning here in Tweed Heads. So different to the usual comments of "Bloody awful",and "Another terrible performance" that he`s been sending for the last few weeks. With relegation almost certain now,it only makes you wonder how Hornets would`ve been placed had they not been away for all those consecutive matches. Pity.

Great game of rugby from both sides with Hornets deserving the win.

 

Some new plays with ball in hand which really impressed me rather than Crook to Millard to English which every team in the world of rugby league know about.

 

Keep up the good work lads.

At Keighley last week I thought the players had stopped playing for Tol, and questioned his future,so glad to be proved wrong with a fantastic display against Fev.All I want to see is effort we got that and more.If we finish out of the bottom two in any other season that would keep us up, I will be happy with that anymore than that would be superb.

Winning try from fullback Wayne Thomson? :shout:

 

At least that's from the Yorkshire perspective.......from our own we have Crooky missing two goal attempts when he wasn't even on the park.

 

Very enjoyable hour and a half, with ups and downs but never any loss of heart or thoughts of capitulation when under severe pressure. Well done all, more of the same, please.
