  1. Think Jim is thinking of Barran but i'm pretty sure he was injured. I didn't think we missed Hewitt that much. The major difference I thought was when Owen came off. Gregory looks very promising and has had some great cameos but today wasn't the day for him. We needed Owen on to control the game but with Kirk going off so early we had to save that sub for the forwards and with Pick and Bridgey having played limited minutes we couldn't get Owen back on.
  2. Awful performance and that second half is close to the worst i've ever seen us play. Gave up when we went 18-4 behind. I was worried about this game during the week that we wouldn't show Haven the respect they deserved and that second half showed it. Green and Holcroft are talented lads but looked like boys today timid and scared. Didn't think we would have a performance as bad as Batley away but this blows that away.
  3. Absolutely magnificent achievement. The way he keeps himself fit as well I can see him playing til he's 35. If he could get close to Roden's record for tries for the new club it would be unreal. What a player.
  4. Hope we approach this game like we've approached all the others so far aside from the aberration which was Batley away. Focus on ourselves, on our performance and on improving on the previous week. No thoughts of complacency or of it being an easier game. If we don't perform we'll lose and make last week pointless. Huge two points this week. Haven look a very different side on the limited amount i've seen of them. They've moved away from a forward based game and seem to try and play an expansive style of play. Their half backs have impressed me especially Dixon at stand off and the full b
  5. Ince should be close to playing as I think he had a dead leg against Batley. Pick was a recurrence of a calf strain so shouldn't be too far away either. Dupree looked like a bad hamstring as he was sprinting so I'd imagine that was around 6 weeks out. Bridgey we've heard nothing nothing other than it was a knee injury. Don't forget about Heaton either, that looked a nasty ankle injury.

  7. Absolutely fantastic performance across the entire 80 mins and we fully deserved the victory. In the first half our defence was superb aside from one bad phase of play when Fax scored their second try. Second half we were in complete control and whilst we looked a bit stodgy with the ball at times we didn't lose our composure and kept them under constant pressure until they finally cracked. I thought there was 3 amazing stand outs yesterday. Croft was sensational yesterday setting up the first try and then scoring the match winner. He looked a massive threat every time he got the ball and
  8. Get in. Been at work all day and just watched the game back now. What a team performance. Screamed our heads off when Crofty went over. Will post a longer comment but need to calm down first.
  9. Excellent signing. With Leeming retiring and Heaton seemingly out for a while we were desperate for a centre. Big, strong player who will have a very decent super league career. Hope Hartley and Roberts still get plenty of game time over the course of the season as they both have impressed.

  11. Tremendous effort today punctuating by some awful moments which in the end cost us the chance of a sneaky victory. Defence was much improved from last week and even when we were missing tackles we were putting in the right effort and aggression which wasn't the case last week. Three of their tries were shockers from our point of view with the horrendous drop out, interception and then the failed restart at the end. Defence out wide still worries me in terms of how many players are flying out of the line and leaving holes for their playmakers to exploit. Individually Green and Spence
  12. I'd like to see Hartley get a chance at centre with Heaton out. He had some very promising touches in the friendlies at times. Would give Holcroft a game on the wing as well and rest Ince for the week after. In the pack its essentially whoever is fit at the moment. Looks like Fletcher will have to stay in the second row replacing Bridgey and the new lad probably off the bench.
  13. We need to focus on the fundamentals of the game rather than obsessing about the score as we are unlikely to beat full time London. We were absolutely shocking in this regard last week, no aggression in the contact, players flying out of the line all over the place trying to solves problems that they themselves were causing by being out of position and then when a break had been made the awful covering back was disgraceful. Pick the fittest 17 we can and tackle your hearts out. That's where we need to start.
  14. NRL stats for metres is insane how they calculate it. Its essentially done from where you receive the ball and where the ball is then played. So in one play several players could have carries that add up to way more than they have actually advanced the ball. At Opta we always started from the ptb and to receive metres you had to go past this mark. So if the ball is played on half way the maximum metres you could make on that next phase was 50m. However Opta has been bought out and a different company now does the collection for super league so they have altered how the data is collected a
