  1. The reserves romped to a 72-6 win over a hard-working but ultimately out-classed York side last night. Fev were 14-0 up within the first ten minutes with tries from Mvududu, Knight and Lyons but then York had a good ten minute spell in which they threatened the Fev line before scoring an excellent try under the posts. Fev were quiet then and lost their way a little before securing the game before half-time with tries from Carr, Bassinder and Parker. 32-6 to Fev at half time. The second half was, in fairness, something of a stroll for the home side as York simply ran out of steam and didn't threaten the Fev line at all. Tries came at regular intervals from Mvududu, Garahan, Brown, Carr, Pountney (x2) and Parker amongst others (sorry to those not included but lost count). Impressive for Fev were the second row pair of Mvududu and debutant Bassinder with both scoring excellent team tries. Tommy Carr got his now usual brace and there were also two each for Mvududu, Pountney and Parker. Carr was impresive with the boot including a number of efforts from the touchline. On the down side another knee injury for the team saw Niall Knight leave the pitch on a stretcher before half time but he was up on crutches later. Big match for the boys at home to Leigh next Wednesday and then they have to wait to see who they get in the play-offs.
  2. Never heard anything mate, always engrossed in the match whichever sport I watch, and tend to block out the banter so I miss the good and the bad. Was this by the clubhouse?
  3. A young reserves side, with just 16 fit players, travelled to Sheffield and came away with a 30-22 win which was secured in the last minute by a try from hard-working Gaz Williamson who had another excellent game. After a strong opening in which they scored 10 points without reply a couple of errors and silly penalties by Fev gave the home side the momentum and Fev's recent frailties came back to haunt them as they went in at half-time two points behind at 16-14. The second half was a very scrappy and nervous affair but Fev deserved their win for sheer guts and determination particularly after defending three conscutive sets of six on their own line. At the final whistle stand-off Hampshire clearly damaged his knee badly and needed to be stretchered off, so best wishes to him.
  4. A very young and, in comparison, lightweight reserves outfit won a thrilling match against a much bigger Whitehaven outfit. Once again the endeavour of the boys was evident from numbers 1-17 but this match saw a big improvement when in possession. None more so than when an inside ball saw Mufaru Muvududu through a gap and under the posts with less than two minutes to go. With the conversion that saw Fev into 20-14 lead and they held out to win. The boys were delighted at the end as this puts them strongly back into contention for the league title after three recent defeats. Once again, a poor referee but thankfully he was just as bad for both sides so neither team can feel any harder done by. Whilst this was a marked improvement in most areas of attacking play, the lack of any semblance of a kicking game remains a big worry.
  5. Was for many years but last season was dreadful at matches and enough was enough. The fines this year don't come as any surprise. The club is skint like most RL clubs and I can appreciate the frustration that causes fans. But RL is bigger than Cas, or any club, and got fed up of the one-eyed views of the world from some of the Cas fans who wouldn't know good RL if it pulled their pudding for them. A minority sure, but they spoil it for everyone. My fifteen year old won't go any more either. Anyway that's a thread for another forum. If I'm honest I have some links with Fev this season and very taken by the club and the atmosphere and its place in the community. Its what pro RL is all about. Good honest skillful players. Many of whom could make the step-up if given the chance to benefit from full time training. My attention is mostly taken by the reserves but will get to some of the end-of-season games and play-offs for the first team who, from the bits I've seen, are a very impressive and well-drilled outfit.
  6. Sorry folks if I've caused some consternation. Only reason I posted is to keep fans up to date on the reserves and give a view on the game. I was at the match, travelled to Keighley and paid my
  7. The reserves lost 24-22 at Keighley this evening. Leading 16-6 minutes after the interval and looking comfortable playing with the slope, they then conceded three tries in five minutes against a Barry Eaton inspired home team. You couldn't fault the endeavour from the young lads but the level of attacking play was woeful with no kicking game at all and constantly attacking down the left channel where Keighley had their defence stacked in anticipation. A couple of glaring errors from the ref but look at your own performance first before playing that game. The biggest worry was the complete lack of leadership which was in marked contrast to how Barry Eaton marshalled his team around the field. If he had played scrum half for Fev they would have won by 30 points.
  8. Match report is wrong. He actually got just the one try in the opening minutes. Chris Parker got the second one credited to Duane, his second overall. Also Duane played in the second row and not in the centres. Nevertheless, a big lad with plenty of promise and he fitted well into a good young side.
  9. A young and inexperienced reserve team were comfortable winners today away at Barrow by 46-6 (TBC). There were four Lions Under 18s on the bench who all played their part. An excellent result given the calibre of players missing and the long journey involved - it will seem shorter on the way back though no doubt!! The boys remain unbeaten so far this season.
