Definitely need some extra beef and a bit more ball playing ability in the middle . Guys like you mentioned wonky had that . Shacks looks our top prop now , so we need reinforcing and quality to lay the platform in , regardless of titles , is a SL 2. I'm still not sold that 4 is gonna do it , unless we're still banking on DR , and loans are to be added ?

PV'S tactics seem to be going round reams where charlos were to go through a team. We defo need a bit of beef in the pack.

Yeah . Part plan part playing to our strong points you'd reckon . Better to watch either way . Important to say guys in the middle - including Mcavoy , Karl , even Rooney , who've done the hard yards , have given everything in standing up to whatever's in front of them . Bit of reinforcing helps them and guys like Matty and the halves , but no sleight on the guys who've stood up big style , often giving weight but no quarter .

Liam Kay on 26 tries this season might disagree with that ;)

Only 26 tries in a team that's won all but 1 game .. Posting 40 points a game in the process...

Gents - Alan E does enjoy opposition ass licking, just too nice a bloke to give you the truth

Firstly great craic in the North stand with your fans - proper banter, look on the blokes face when I suggested a merger with Haven was a joy until he realised I was extracting the urine.

Onto the game, we had two players out with ops and 'rested' Acton, Barlow and Pitman, getting some game time for new recruits Walker and Platt -  a very strong team all the same. The game itself was poor, with terrible officials who seemed to forget we are in the entertainment industry. Lots of emotion about on the day, and lots of 'distractions' the club /players have been involved in the past couple of weeks probably didnt help

You dominated field position and possession early doors and moved the ball along the line without looking dangerous, it lashed down late morning and again during the game compounding the errors and poor officials - you got the point that will keep you up and we took a scrappy win in our heritage game

All the best for the future but you need some size down the middle to compete next year, get that and you will be fine

True I'm a nice bloke! ;)

 

However, I will always respect the opposition - especially when they have played well. Could it maybe have been that we were poor, because Workington stood up to us, and refused to be steam-rollered by our pack? Who knows? But that's the second time we have had a very difficult game against Town this season, so perhaps credit has to be given to our opposition.

 

As for Matt remembering last season's lesson, at Derwent Park, I'm old enough to remember losing by 94-4 there many years ago. Of course, there were no bonus points to motivate us in those days, or pie-eaters for us to take on D/R!!

94-4 !!

I remember it well and got so drunk, my trip home felt like 10 mins.

Lets hoipe the 3000 lapsed Worky fans from that era return next season.

I for one will be looking at the fixtures again before booking my weekend in the Lakes.

We'd all agree with that middle bit . Even a decent percentage

Typical of our luck ... He's injured !!

Not surprised Dave , there was no way the tackle was dangerous its was a split second thing. Although Carter should learn not to race 30yards infield and leave a huge overlap
