It made the usual 4 hour plus journey back home go very quickly, not been that happy since the win at Bradford away last year. A marker and a major achievement to take on from this season.
The defence was immense and the majority of the try scoring chances were taken, simple really , they'd been capable of this all season , losing 5 matches by 6 points or less says alot.I just wish there had been more 'Taffs' up there with us to see it. A side put together quickly about a month or so before the start of the season of a few seasoned pro's , talented local Union converts, a local South African and Australian with Welsh heritage have done remarkably well, but whatever their background they are now Welsh Rugby League players. I look forward to seeing many of them representing my country this Autumn in what will be a real barometer as to how well we're doing.
Good to hear all that. I noticed Gareth Dean not on team sheet Sunday. I know Gareth because he plays here in Carcassonne although from next season he will be transfering over to Limoux. His idea of going to the Scorpions is to put himself in the window for the EC.
