What a hectic 80 minutes of rugby that was !!

I thought we were almost perfect for the first 25 minutes, then we go and drop the ball from the kickoff after the second try ... and by half time we were behind.

Showed plenty of grit and steel out there tonight though, and it seemed as though we refused to come away without something from the game. We were guilty of soft defence on a couple of tries but we always looked we had a chance of scoring when we had the ball ourselves.

Well done to Mapals for a superbly taken hat-trick (every one of them took some scoring) but the performance was a real team effort.

Good old Ronnie didn't let us down either ... did he REALLY penalise us for feeding at one point? And how about that final Sheffield try from Finigan ?? :blink:

All in all things could have been a lot worse tonight: if Barrow couldn't thrash Swinton then the next best thing was for Swinton to thrash Barrow, which in turn has kept us out of the relegation zone.

Gonna be an awfully long ten days to the last round of the season though ...

Shef play Fev next Weds so let's hope Shef win to claim title and Fev pick up injuries and then play a second team against us to prepare for play offs

Just having a proper look at the table, and bearing in mind there's just one round (and a bit) to play I can't believe the number of possible permutations!!

Still any two of five can still go down. One thing's for sure ... if we win, will stop up ... but Barrow, Swinton and Keighley can all say the same thing!!

For anyone who might be interested, watch the full 80 minutes on youtube, See Lee Superman Maples leap 6 feet of the ground & charge down a kick for a hat trick try and bonus point.
