  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. It does seem strange Phil. A look online shows various sources showing, as you say, Greg Johnson of Batley in the Jamaica squad. Apparently he was released by Bradford in September 2020. So it would be interesting to know whether we have re signed him; whether because he is unattached our club name was attached to his name at random ; or is it Rettie or Broughton that's been picked for the squad. Or is there another explanation? Does anyone out there know? Incidentally, I have counted 7 ex Bulldogs in the squad (including Johnson).
  5. It was interesting to look at the first try. Bowman looks to have seen the danger and is tracking across when Walshaw pushes a Haven player straight at him. I don't think that Bowman would have made it in such heavy traffic but he was a yard or two in front of Hooley at that stage. The first time that I watched it I thought that the Haven player had cynically taken Bowman out, but not so.
  6. There seems to be a bit of turmoil at Whitehaven just now with five directors leaving the club midweek according to the fan's forum. Whether this has any effect on Whitehaven's performance today remains to be seen.
  7. Interesting to see Tonks is in the squad despite the story in the Batley News.
  8. It's a reasonable concern Phil with Brown and Tonks out for 4 weeks according to the Batley News. However, even with these two crocked and Horn on loan we have 5 front row forwards available. Senior returning match fit is a bonus and so Linners seems to be getting it right.
  9. I had taken the path( -My orders-Active tickets) and could not print or download said ticket. You no doubt found the path (-My orders-All orders list- and then the download e ticket icon) which then shows a printable version of the ticket. I'm glad that your head's not hurting!!
  10. Trying to make a paper copy made my head hurt but eventually managed.. It was either that or a two mile long extension lead for my pc. We may be looking after my Grandson tomorrow as he has a cold. If I'm evicted from the match on Sunday because I am coughing and spluttering I'll be one unhappy Grandad!
  11. Clubs really need to work together as never before. For example, there might be opportunities in the short term to move home games to a ground with a larger capacity given goodwill all around.
  12. Is there a hint in there of something that we don't know?
  13. We lacked cohesion at times. With the benefit of hindsight perhaps we should have left Hooley at full back rather than disrupt two positions for one injury. No lack of effort from most of the team but well played London, we would have had to be on top form to give them a run for their money today.

    Given that KIrklees seems to be anchored amongst the worst half dozen areas for Covid 19 I would assume that there are pressures to do all that can be done to get rates falling again. This might have a bearing on how cautious they are when setting crowd numbers. Mind you, if they were able to take crowd demographics into account then they would no doubt find that a majority of Championship fans are fully vaccinated.
  16. I don't think that I have ever seen Manning play better than last nights game, especially when Sheffield were on the front foot in the second half and we looked to be fading. I thought that it was an extraordinary effort from him.
  17. I got fed up with what seemed inane drivel from the commentary team, especially in the first half. Is it just the grumpy old man in me? Well done on a workmanlike victory.
  18. I think that number 13 was just trying to kick the ball back off the line Roger
