  1. Of course BSJ, and I can now confirm that there were 57.39 Dewsbury fans.
  2. Yes thanks Roger, I was aware that he "might" be a Toronto fan.
  3. I never know whether you are the genuine article or an attention seeking individual sat in a bedsit in Clitheroe, or some such location. If you are the real McCoy, then I wish good luck to you and your neighbours.
  4. I haven't a clue; but well done for trying to work it out. It's an interesting post.
  5. Earlier in the season we often had Hall on the bench. If fit and willing he would have been more useful on the day I think.
  6. Well done Whitehaven, a magnificent effort in keeping the score down in the first half when we had a period of dominating play but persevered with barging over the line only to be held up. And well done Jouffret for doing what he does best, and pinching the win in a close, tight match. There are often good reasons behind the scenes that dictate who plays on the day, but having three props on the bench did not serve us well. We seemed to continually try and punch a hole down the middle instead of playing the more expansive game that we played early season. I think that Silverback summed it up perfectly; and given the other results it was a huge opportunity lost.
  7. Don't mock! With knock out football anything is possible as you and fellow Dewsbury fans know. Add in the lottery of injuries and Covid 19 and anything is possible if you can put out a strong team on the day.
  8. I think that Roger has got you there DD. Roger actually wrote "laxing quizzical" which is more like "oh, this is comfy, but how the heck did I end up with a Brazilian?"
  9. My guess is a new number 4.
  10. When you complain Phil that you would like to know more about injuries, unavailable players etc then you have my sympathy; I like to know these things. I cannot complain about the players efforts on the field of play though. At full strength and given our form I think that we would have been in with a chance of causing an upset. When you can only field seventeen players by including a player who retired some years ago then you can bet your bottom dollar that some of the seventeen are also carrying niggles that make them less effective. At least one player looked to be limping during the warm up. We clearly missed the cutting edge that Hall and Hooley have been providing and perhaps the toughness that Browny (and Tonks) provide but given the limitations of the side they worked really hard and put up a good show in my opinion
  11. Do we have a couple of wingers unavailable?
  12. Five wingers in the squad. At least we should be ok on the flanks. (yep, I know Morton and Hall can play other roles).
  13. It will be two bruised and battered squads BSJ and it will possibly come down to what teams can be mustered and what injuries and niggles individual players are having to carry.
  14. I don't like drums in Rugby Grounds and could have cheerfully stuffed the drum up the Halifax lad's you know what last week. However, yesterday the French drummer won me round (almost!) with his relatively restrained use of the drum and his good humour in leading the Batley fans chant when we went in front. I was also impressed by the good humoured way that the Tolouse players reacted to the crowd. It was an enjoyable afternoon despite the score.
  15. It would be interesting to know the position with our injured players although Linners may well prefer to keep this close to his chest.
  16. Which is a shame, Wayne's enthusiasm lifted the crowd. However, CL appears to be a shrewd coach and new bodies will be very welcome just now.
  17. It's unlikely BSJ, resources are looking a bit thin at the moment and form seems to have dipped somewhat. As always luck will no doubt play it's part but we'll have more idea after next week I reckon. Whatever happens, we have had a good start to the season and some very entertaining moments.
  18. I must admit that I thought the same about the kicking game in the second half. We just seemed to keep trying ineffective up and unders instead of trying to build pressure and pin them down at the bottom of the field. Easy said from the sidelines though.
