  2. Does this also mean that Toronto will have to start again in League 1 for failing to fulfill fixtures and bringing the game into disrepute? Probably not.
  3. Very little created from our halves. We did move the ball out wide but it was just for the sake of it without committing defenders or creating gaps for anyone to run into. We were camped on their line on a few occasions and didn't seem to know what to do. Unless things change I am struggling to see where our next points will come.
  4. When fixtures came out most people would have expected us to lose first two games even with a fully fit squad. We just need to draw a line under these two defeats, hope we get a few players back and treat next week as first game of season.
  5. At least the club are trying to promote the game in the area it is being played. Promoted to the championship, lovely little ground at Bower Fold, first game of the season against one of the biggest names in rugby league. If the "stayaways" aren't going to turn up for that one they aren't going to turn up at all. Let's get some local people into the ground and see if we can get some new fans to support us for the rest of the season.
  6. I think we all know the squad is too small at the moment and that the Saints team was made up of youngsters (and Paul Crook !) but we scored 6 tries, were solid in the middle, moved the ball out wide and won 32-12. For a pre season game I think we should just accept it was a good run out and celebrate the result.
  7. The signing of Matthew Fletcher was the headline RL news in Thursday's Manchester Evening News taking up half the page and pushing out news about Jackson Hastings to the side . Well done to Oldham RL for getting news into the press.
  8. I don't think we have the finances to bring anyone in from PNG but I would like to see at least one forward who can come off the bench and get the crowd excited in the way that maybe Michael Ward or Luke Nelmes did.
  9. Good result. Terrible game. Way too many mistakes and a lot of them from Danny Langtree. Hope they are all out of his system as we will need to be much better next week.
  10. It's a competitive division and this was a tight game that could have been different but for the bounce of the ball and a missed tackle. Having said that I don't think we were creative enough. Bridge, Langtree, Leeming and McComb are dangerous but they are just given the ball without committing any defenders so they are faced with busting through 2 or 3 men tackles nearly every time. If we can give them the ball in space or with just one man to beat then things may be different. Still all to play for so lets see what happens next.
  11. Given the lack of forwards to lay the groundwork at times we did ok. Did we only have 3 subs today. I know the BBC said we has Davies, Bent and Kruise Leeming playing but they don't really seem to bother if it is not Super League. Hope we have some bigger men available for next week.
  12. Talking about the West Wales game I am hoping to give my voucher to someone else as I would be going anyway. Hope a few more do the same and encourage a few more to attend.
  13. It was a great game. Skill, aggression, mistakes, refereeing decisions. The league table confirms what a competitive decision we are in. Good debut from Leeming as well.
  14. It's a great season so far for the neutral. On any given day any team can win with possible exception of West Wales. The results last weekend and the league table reflect that. There will be ups and downs for fans of all teams but isn't it good to have such a competitive league?
  15. I did think our game management would be better this year with the addition of Hawkyard, Bowman and Law but it isn't. Add to that the apparent lack of leadership from the captain and we are in the same position as last year when it comes to seeing games out. In fact during the end of game collapse I think our captain was in the sin bin which is not where you expect the captain to be. The coach has some big calls to make and appointing a new on field captain needs to be one of them.
