The free kids were not included in the total and the amateur clubs sold a combined total of 140 tickets between them compared to 350 last year, anyway a very professional performance and very encouraging signs apart from the goalkicking.
Are the meal tickets the amateur clubs sold, which I believe was around 50 per club, included in this figure or is there another 100 to add ?
Free tickets for kids was an excellent gesture from Hawks and one I'm sure the community appreciate. A good day but as you say a little disappointing attendance wise considering the mild weather.

40 - 0 to Hawks. If they'd had you kicking Robbo it might have been higher.

Think it was 40 -nil daz but that didnt reflect on the all stars efforts one bit they tested the Hawks with some strong hits in defence and looked pumped up in more ways than one size wise that is lol

Thought Lee Mapels was outstanding ,rightly so winning the man of the match award, thought Mapel's got three tries today not four, and Oaksy was our 2nd best player today.
A lot of effort put in today from both teams for a friendly fixture.
Again just our goalkicking let us down, March needs to be our goalkicker for this season. I know he missed one kick at goal today, but he is the best we have for the kicking duties.

Goalkicking was a bit wayward, but the fact that we moved it about a bit meant that the wingers scored six tries between them, all out wide.
Regarding the attendance, it's amazing how fast the novelty value wears off on games like this. I remember the inaugural Lazenby Cup match after its resurrection brought something like 1600 in, don't think we've been close to that ever again. Maybe last year the Warriors and Old Boys fans thought they might have thought they had a bit of a chance, a year on and I think most people expected a one-sided match to some degree or other.
Well done to both sides for an enjoyable game.

We've got David March who kicked in Super League--- have to agree with us regulars who have been saying since lastt season that we need a goalkicker plus a scrum half--- Barry Eaton should know all about goalkicking so lets wait and see who gets that job when the league season starts.
Very pleased with yesterdays performance.

Replying to a earlier posting by KOL about goalkickers going out to practise before the game--- I remember a top goalkicker with the team we were playing doing just that-- he kicked every practise goal, and I thouht b-hell we don't stand a chance today. When the game came he missed every goal.
Finally let's not forget DANNY RATCLIFFE , and keep him in the frame. Perhaps HAWKEYE could update us on him.
