  1. Leeds must have the worst pack Super League has seen for years. The back division in theory matches up to others with Hurrell and Watkins in the centre and 2 decent wings and Walker at full back has loads of talent. But you can't win when your going backwards all the time. Right from the off we ran with more purpose than any match this season, we tackled harder than any game this season and if you take out Vaivai brain farts in defence and Addy giving Hurrell the ball then Leeds actually only really created 1 try which was the first by Dwyer's excellent dummy!
  2. London were the better side in the first half. Danny Ward has them playing some very good rugby, they moved the ball well and looked very pleasing on the eye. They were stretching our defence regularly and with better outside backs they would have scored more points. Enjoyed their style of play a lot more than watching our own half the time. Coach obviously give Rovers a rocket at half time as they came out in the second half fired up and put the game to bed very quickly, then clocked off again. Very worrying really and can see nothing more than a place with the lower mid table teams battling it out for nothing.
  3. Leeds have a very average pack and poor half backs. If teams play the men in front of them rather than the name of the "club" then they are a lower half team, Salford with a full compliment should win.
  4. The problem for any promoted team is always matching the week to week intensity of Super League. We see this year after year. London obviously well up for the first game against Wakey who scored early and thought they could cruise through the rest of the game. They were always going to struggle the week after and Salford proved too strong eventually. The third week is always an interesting one, by rights they should have been back at home which would have helped massively. With this being an away game I fell that as long as Rovers play this as hard as the first 2 then they will have too much for London. My only fear of losing comes from 2 scenarios- 1. Rovers quick start ( a la Wakey ) then relax think its easy and start making mistakes London then get back into it. 2. Rovers run out thinking it will be easy make loads of mistakes London take confidence play well and win. If Rovers take the game as seriously as they should play properly and professionally then we would win this game 8 out of 10, just hope we do.
  5. You call my comment childish yet you refer to prima donnas and hinting that people are not tough enough to watch the game if they don't like foul play. I would suggest you maybe the child.
  6. Strange because I wouldn't pay a penny to watch your lot get slaughtered by any of the teams they normally get slaughtered by (except us)
  7. That is an interesting take on someone using an elbow on a defenceless player. Most people would call that cowardly. Maybe this speaks more to you as a person.
  8. What a complete load of rubbish. With all the other problems the game has, introducing Golden point does nothing to help. If any game I attend finishes level at normal time I will leave the ground and I urge all other fans to do the same. The powers at be never consult or listen to fans. So if you don't want it vote with your feet. Imagine a Sky game and everyone leaves at full time, that would seriously get everyone talking. Might even get the fools who run the sport to listen.
  9. Nothing wrong with winding up the convicts keep it up Schoey!!
  10. Never mind we can at least pick the Man of Steel favourite to replace him, he will really terrify them Kiwis.
  11. Good luck to Widnes next year as the club tries to rebuild. Not easy to do in the championship and they will have a target on their backs being the relegated super league club. Just read a bit of this and the other thread and there seems to be quite a few people casting a lot of aspersions around about Widnes and their players. For me these idiotic keyboard warriors need to crawl back into their little holes, you truly are clueless about rugby league and life in general.
  12. Well played Halifax, great effort in the 2nd half. Did yourselves your club and your fans proud. Rovers fell apart the minute Todd Carney came on the pitch. At that point we were 24 points up and playing some really good rugby, moving the ball nicely, mixing in crisp short passing with accurate miss out balls when needed. Carney comes on and everything slows to the pace he needs it at to be able to compete. A pace that Halifax are quite happy with. All of a sudden we struggle to put 2 passes together. The other useless Carney went off injured, think he injured his ankle carrying is unearned wages. In the second half we lost our best player Quinlan with an ACL injury I think, god knows when we may see him again. Not looking good for next season at this rate.
  13. Peacock carried the Leeds pack, look at his stats he did the work of 2 players with 25 hit ups a game and 200m made along with 40 odd tackles a game. The stats off the likes of Bailey, Cuthbertson and all the others are a joke in comparison. The last Grand Final was really an amazing performance from McGuire, an organising half back! The replacing of him and Burrows with Myler really is a disgrace and whoever is in charge of player recruitment and planning needs to lose their job! Leeds have lost their soul with McGuire and Burrows going. JJB is the only one left and the guy is obviously struggling on his own.
