Attendance; 525

After last year's debacle we should feel that we have something to prove. However, if you look at the history of games between these two clubs the only certainty is unpredictability.

I will be optimistic, for once:

Hornets 16 - 24 Rams

FTS Glover

Att 635

We seem to be quite optimistic about this fixture, but won't the Adamson boys want a say in bringing about our downfall?

Well they may, but I feel optimistic too, providing we tackle like last week and cut down on those silly penalties. 

Rochdale 14-24 Dewsbury

FTS: Morton

MoM: Sykes

Att: 608

Think I read that TOBY Adamson won't be fit to take part tomorrow.......... Not bad news for us, I think.

Weather forecast looks reasonably OK as well, so it looks like game on !!

Does anyone know why we appear to be the only team in the league that does not post its squad at least 24 hours before a game ..... Every team in the league , apart from us,  have posted their 19 this week ..... even Batley.    Or have I missed it?

Who's doing your weather forecasts, unless the weather west of the Pennines is much better than here he needs a new job..Ain't stopped raining since I got up!!

That said their pinch looked top notch yesterday so I'm sure its not gonna matter..

Our club does not seem to publish the match day squad, but League Express managed to reveal both squads. No Moore for us, but Sam Day is included, as are Everett, Spicer and Worrincy.

Reckon speakman moves into the halfs and sam takes his hooker spot on the bench. Hopefully the forwards can win the battle tonight as we tend to struggle without Moore. A dominant pack for once would help everyone out.

Defence was good again and we scored some great tries on attack with two from crunching tackles on Rochdale players making them lose the ball for us to scoop and score (Glover and Brown). One of Worrincy's two was Rombo-like when he went 90 metres and Guzdek's was from a lovely short pass from Sykes about 20 yards out.

Not sure what changed in the second half; just the one score about twenty minutes into the half. Still lost the penalty count 8-3.

Great result for us; one of the most entertaining first halves of footy I’ve seen the Rams play in a long time. The second half was fairly stale but the game was all but won and the players were clearly saving their bodies for Sunday! 

Sykes was the man of the match in my opinion, three lovely assists that caught the opposition out each time and controlled the tempo of the game in my opinion. Glover, Worrincy (dealt with being targeted well in defence) English, Hallet and Spicer all very good too. 

Onto Sunday, let’s not waste this momentum!
