Hoping a few of the Dewsbury lads get a game, but hypocritically would like to see Samy Kibula playing???

I’ll  go 14-18.  

Att 792

I’ve no issues with the loan players apart from the 2 from Rhinos. Anyway onto the game. Let’s just put last weeks defeat behind us and move on.

If we can cut out the silly penalties and mistakes I honestly think we can win.

Us by 4

Fts Ryder

Mom Knowles

Att 814 (usual taxi army from Sheffield)

Sheffield's gates seem to have improved this year Graham; how many Rams fans do you think were at Halifax last week?

Good to see Andrade back .... not so good no Hooley and no Walshaw!! ... I am a little concerned about our backs defence against Sheffields wingers! ... especially if Gabriel is at centre ....  I'm probably leaving Alex Brown out ... and putting one of the second rowers ( maybe Knowles ) at centre!

I HAD an idea that we might just beat Sheffield, but on seeing the selected nineteen I’m not so sure. 

I guess that Hooley, Iggy, Walshaw and Ward have been dropped in favour of King and Mackay (not sure I’ve seen those two play), Harrison, Alex Brown and keeping the two loanees from Leeds, who, to me,  did not offer anything at Halifax. I think we have here a weak defence. 

Dewsbury 16-28 Sheffield 

FTS: Morton 

MoM: Annakin

Att: 944

Ward definitely picked up a bad knock last week and I believe that Hooley did also. Why Brown is included evades me and we don't have an alternative hooker, so either Day plays 80 minutes or someone like Knowles would step in.

When LG was appointed we did say that we would need to be patient so we should remember that I suppose. It will continue to be an interesting season, hopefully not in a Chinese sense.

Wind, rain, hail - could be a leveller or expose us, who can tell?

Rams 16 - 24 Eagles

Att: 815, or whatever the announcer chooses. (This will not be helped by OuRLeague streaming the Widnes-Bradford game, ko 3.00pm, foc to all subscribers. I hope that the club will have something to say about this in due course.)

Pretty sure we’ll be getting an update from the club anytime now on where we are with injuries etc.  We generally do.

No Wait......

it would spoil all the speculation on here and spoil our fun.  Let’s hope they don’t bother. .

Bloody hell fire. 

 

Theres some Dewsbury players that need to take a good hard look at themselves after that. They’ve let the fans, and themselves, down. 

With a bit more composure Dewsbury could have won 5/6 games this season.

What happened for Samy Kibula to get sent off? If ever there's a forward that's too 'nice' it's him.

Sheffield had a player sent off so think the referee took the opportunity to level things up. He shouldn't have been sent off.

Nonsense

They all played well today and but for the Ref we would have had the points.   To start with Samy would never have been sent off had he not already sent their fella off.  Their bloke thought he was Barry McGuighan, couldn't really see that Samy did much at all..

Every decision went their way including that ridiculous pen 2 mins from time.  Without that we'd have won..

Gutted for the lads today...Think we did throw away the lead against York and Toronto but today we were simply robbed.  Gotta keep playing like that though..If we do our luck has to change

I wasn't at the game - reduced to listening on hospital radio (not from inside - my followers don't need to worry) and the factor that struck me was that both of the last two yellow cards resulted from our players pulling off desperation tackles. Maybe if they hadn't been allowed to make both of those breaks down the middle then these tackles won't have been called for and the defeat would have been avoided.

We do seem to end most of our matches having to perform a heap of last ditch defending. Somethng, somewhere should be happening to prevent this from being necessary in the first instance, and I believe that is the root of LG's continual frustration with the team: game management.

Totally agree Nick. The lads gave everything apart from maybe one (remain nameless). Jack Smith's handling of the game today was appalling. TJ's weren't much better. Whatever went on out there today one side got heavily penalised, Dewsbury. If you get a balance from a referee, consistency, then fair play, but Smith played them into the game. I am not saying intentionally. He just doesn't have the required skills to be an official. On 3 occasions on tackle six he penalised us for holding down which were very contentious. Moscow 01 you were obviously watching a different game

It's the last 5 minutes BSJ. By that time we were a man short due to inept officiating. Sheffield had to throw the kitchen sink at us to salvage the game. They had an extra man. This week wasn't down to hanging on it was down to ###### officials and nobody will tell me otherwise. Kibula got sent off for nothing yet Finn kicks through on the last and nearly gets his head knocked off late and the referee waves play on. We have been masters of our own downfall but not today
