  1. Missed tackles are obviously not good but you are always going to miss a fair few especially as we are down the bottom. One of the big worries for me watching the game back was how little control we had at the PTB , an area where we have dominated League 1 since Naylor came aboard, both in attack and defence. Dewsbury constantly got three men in the tackle and manipulated us onto our backs or a poor position. Whereas when we were defending we would get numbers in the tackle but they finished on their elbows and knees getting a quick PTB and plenty of easy metres. Down the hill second half was so easy for them and was probably the easiest half they will have all season. In terms of changes we have to make a change in the halves. Charnock had a nightmare and whilst Hewitt wasn't great he was much better than Charnock. Abram has been good at times this year but teams have started to target him at full back because of his small stature. I'd move Abram to stand off and let him just run the ball as he is very evasive and let Hewitt control the team. Full back would either put Kay back in his best position or look to buy a new player. When Bent is back i'd move him to right side second row to help Abram in defence and move Langtree to Loose forward. Langers is one of the best and most destructive ball carriers in the Championship but is just getting zero ball out wide this season. At least at Loose he will be constantly in the game and it would simplify his defence where he would just have to tackle rather than worry about the Opposition half on his side which he has struggled a bit with this year as you can see with his missed tackle count.

  3. Absolutely awful second half. First half we tackled quite well and seemed up for the game which was a huge improvement on last week. Very poor with the ball though with our only try coming from a dewsbury knock on 10 metres out. Second half we dropped the ball first set let them get in front and it was game over as soon as they got 8 points in front. For Dewsbury they played the game very smartly and dominated down the middle in the second half with Annakin and Connor Scott the stand outs for me. Finn and Sykes just get the job done no fuss Charnock was absolutely appalling today with some of the worst passing i've ever seen from a half back. Can't actually think of anyone playing well. Terrible day.
  4. Massive game for us this Sunday. Dewsbury have started the season very well with two impressive wins against Halifax away and then Widnes at home. They've got a couple of ex Oldham lads as well in Joe Martin and Luke Nelmes In terms of the squad we have lost Kershaw and Croft on dual reg with Worthington and Johnson the likely replacements in the starting team. I'd also look to bring Kay back into the team at full back. Abram looks very promising but has made a few big mistakes at full back. I'd drop Hewitt and move Abram to scrum half. We have to start better than we have in the games this season aside from Haven away as every game we have been beaten almost before 30 mins are up. We played better in the second half against Bradford but I still didn't think we were that good and we'll need to be significantly better to beat Dewsbury.

    our league

    Awful first half. We looked really weak and unmotivated for some reason . Bradford could only score when they got within 10m of our line and we let them camp down there for the first 15 mins and it was game over. Defence on the line was pitiful from just about everyone. Poor Abram had a shocker in the first half but there wasn't too many who could hold their heads up by half time. Second half was better but not by that much. Intensity in defence was better and we tried moving the ball a bit more but we still looked really stodgy and not free flowing with the ball. So many of the players got the ball and straight away tried to pass the ball but we weren't moving any of their players out of position so we were just going sideways with no penetration into their line. Massive game next week against a much improved Dewsbury team.
  7. Kershaw back on dual reg as well for us. Wing has gone from being probably our weakest position to one of our strongest with the signing of Ince as well who is proven quality. Wonder if this means we might see a bit of Kay at full back which is his best position and maybe Abram to scrum half as we are just getting nothing from Hewitt.

  10. Abram was fantastic at full back and that was definitely a penalty try. one on one with the full back steps him then gets tripped. Actually thought the ref was superb, firstly telling Bridgey to pipe down shouting at him and then the pens they received in the second half were all deserved. Thought Wilkinson was superb again and he is starting to play bigger minutes as Diskin can't take him off. Langtree was immense in both attack and defence with a couple of absolute bone rattlers. Croft on debut looked good and had one excellent break in the first half. As everyone has pointed out at 0-8 or 4 -14 we really should have put our foot on their throats and kept them in that bog in the corner and ground them down but some very sloppy play let them in our 20 and with beasts like Aiye you always have a chance. Get in Oldham
  11. Get in. We made that so difficult but a win is a win
  12. To be fair the dewsbury fans warned us this could happen. Rather have Gwaze, Fletcher and Beckett if he isnt interested.
  13. What we reckon the team will be if the game is on. I'd go with Abram, Kay,Croft,Leeming,Aaronson,Charnock,Hewitt,Joy,Owen,Beckett,Langtree,Bridge,Bent. subs:Wilkinson,Spencer,Fletcher,Gwaze. Would split up Joy and Spencer and keep Spanner on the bench so we've always got some experience on the pitch at prop. Both centres would be a huge boost as we have struggled hugely there at the start of the season. Croft may be young but he had a couple of cracking performances especially against Saints.
  14. Charnley has turned into a right carthorse since he's come back from Union. Got absolutely roasted by Burgess in Round 1
