  1. Said on another thread I hope its not Hardman Whilst a club legend no way is this the right job for him - not only is there added weight of expectation but hes too inexperienced to take on a job like this at this stage of his coaching career plus if it starts to unravel and go wrong - what would be the implications of his life outside of work? He is MC son in law after all - They do say never work with family members If Hardman is harbouring ambitions of being a top man surely he has to step away and hone his skills elsewhere
  2. Off to carry water onto pitch in NRL is Jacks
  3. Failed the brief has to go Hope some of the dads army pack go with him Hopefully the new man is not Ian Hardman An embarassing season of failure all round
  4. Think we are a different animal to when Batley played us at home last time - we were rife with injuries and had a decimated pack - the pack is back - cant see another upset
  5. Craig hall could do HB as well if needs be swap the backs around and bring gale in Not ideal but there are emergency options there
  6. Just need to win one of our away games you would think - you would say our two remaining home games should be victories
  7. Davies not injured - Mac told him he isnt good enough or big enough to play VS Leigh - cant argue because he has got pulverised the 2 games so far VS Leigh
  8. Yes not good that again but with everyone else nearby loosin that should at least be 2nd sewn up regardless Jacks probably out next week lookin at how he limped off, no bussey in the second half Cannot believe we will see an unfit Jono Ford more than likely take to the field and try and guide us round the park vs leigh Looking forward to the day session round leeds, hopefully will not see the bash game
  9. Pickersgill has fractured something in his back so was the talk on terraces Sat so doubt we are seeing him for a while
  10. Agree with the other comments on here Was bored from min 1-80 to be honest - felt like i was going through the motions as well as the team, something is definately not right, you could tell in the body language when they stood behind the sticks, no conversation or anything just waiting fir the opposistion to kick the goal Its like they always knew they were better than them and could take them to the cleaners at any opportunity - “we will let you score but we will score 3 or 4 more after” sort of mentality No lessons have been learned overall for me and the testing opposistion we probably need wont be coming up in the next few weeks given its London & Haven the next two games, then its York at home before the bash, which mightve been a test but they could be busted given their next two games after this weekend are fax and batley so will we get anything before leigh? Baffling Eseh did not get on considering it was a warm day Oh well
  11. All teams players goad the opposistion fans - were always at it giving it big licks in front of them
  12. Apart from Kheirellah struggling to think of anyone who stood out But he cant be excused - his descision at the end to knock the ball out appears to be a nightmare descision as got injured in that play and helped from the field Just a poor performance - our numerous 34/35/36 year olds in the forward pack looked its age today against that head down, younger more mobile leigh pack, which allowed Ipape to run the game Our ability in the backs to not take a tackle and try and offload it resulting in numerous knock ons early in the tackle count did nkt help us build any pressure That said i dont think we got the 50/50s - i dont mean the ref descisions, i mean the richochets, the bounce of the ball, the loose balls in midfield, everything seemed to fall leighs way It was not a performance that a Brian Mac team is famous for, but however poor we was we were still in the game with 10 mins to go & there are things that can be fixed up
  13. Thought ford got stuck in with regards tackling when he came on - did not have much impact with ball in hand but probably not helped with that with all the posistional changes in the second half but thought his organisation and marshalling of the line and his leadership skills was there for all to see and his influence on games will grow with more gametime
  14. Wildie - no break just bruising misses haven but that should be the only game touch wood
  15. Jacks got a dead leg according to vickers in that interview, said it was nothing serious - being 42-0 up at half time obviously helped with personnel descisions
