Must win...

 

 

And we will win

 

Quietly confident, but not over confident, read yesterday that Oxford had 12 players out with injury on Sunday so maybe puts the result into perspective, just need to keep out feet on the ground & we will be ok

Sounds like Iain Morrison could be out for the season, abscess removed from inside a shoulder muscle & an open wound to check it doesn't come back......

Seems we're being written off on the main forum. Don't really know why, we lost to Oldham by 1 point at their place and our current form has been great.

Hoping for and expecting a win and a big crowd on Sunday.

Could have done with his agression Sunday, also not sure if Belly is fit yet, but would be more than happy to see last Sunday's 17 turn out this week

Marvellous, pretty sure without checking that's the biggest attendance of the league this season (Oldham brought quite a few too). Hopefully some more fans will start crawling out of the woodwork and we can get a similar crowd on the 10th against Gateshead. Anyway OT, totally dominated them in all areas, hard to see past Reynolds for MoM, perhaps Pat Smith.

6 points clear lolololol

Well, I think when we said we'd win, we'd win by only a few points, not like that. Bar that 10 minutes when the ball was dropped every tackle, it was an entertaining game (from our point of view anyway!). Everyone played well once again.

Superb display by the lads 1 to 17 were tremendous , shame that the rain spoilt a great display as I think we could have hit 70 today but for 20 mins both sides were playing with a bar of soap

Very impressive today.We look so dangerous when we throw the ball about.I had either Reynolds,Salty or Pat smith as mom.Couldn"t fault anyone today.Word for Joe Picketts.He took some massive hits today,some of which were very dodgy to say the least.He could have gone down and milked it every time.He just got up and got on with the game.Deserves massive credit for that.Need to keep this form going and hit the play offs running wherever we finish.The lads deserve a rest next week.Good to see a decent crowd today aswell.Hopefully,will be the same when Gteshead visit in a few weeks.As has been said,think its a good job the heavens opened for Oldham.Neither team could hold onto the ball for 15/20 minutes.

Teams sometimes have days when nowt goes right and today it happenend to Oldham.

Couldn't fault some of their lads for effort, Josh Crowley, Steve Nield and Sam Gee particularly grafted constantly. On air I was wondering how many tackles Crowley made today - I reckon he must have topped 50 easily.

Everytime Joe Picketts took a big hit he just got up, patted his opponent on the back and grinned at him !! How discouraging must that be when you've hit him with your best shot.

Difficult with what's ahead but one or two of the Knights should be having a contract for 2015 shoved under their nose.

Ben Reynolds was superb, Jack Lee an inspiration, Pat Smith like an annoying wasp (scuse the pun) who wouldn't go away and Salty covered every blade of grass on the park. Aldous was just, well, Aldous - the support run for the first try would have done Super League full back's credit ! Must mention Ed Smith - he gets better with every game and he must be attracting SL attention.

Great stuff.

By the way - no referee in this division of the quality of Dave Merrick..

By the way - in the way of advice, Tom Crashley - try watching Dave Merrick. Look and learn...

 

Agree with this totally Andy. Merrick has been outstanding every time I have seen him this season

Agree with all of that, MOM for me from Reynolds, Pickets, Salts, Ed or Pat Smith - would have gone for Pat, but 1 to 17 outstanding, Brad Day dropped a few balls, but kept coming back for more & ran some great angles, good to see a decent crowd & the lads at last getting the support they deserve

 

If I was an Oldham fan I wouldn't be panicing, as Andy said just a day when everything goes wrong & most things went right for us, think we will be playing them again & they will be a hell of a lot better then

Two weeks running that the Championship has had four games with an attendance under 1000.

Other two C1 games barely managed 300 in total !!

Worth reading the letter in RL Express this week from the 'Caravan' man.

Thought the ref was ok but see we lost the penalty count 7 4.i assume all our penalties were for head shots but not once did he pull the offender to one side to warn him
