  1. I believe that Luke Gale is of Scandinavian heritage. He is Finnished.
  2. Good opportunity for Trinity today against a Catalans team with a whole pack missing and the late withdrawals of Tomkins and Pearce. Trinity will be disappointed I'm sure.
  3. Rovers were pretty much down to the bare bones of the bare bones and at 6-16 the game was there to be won by Toulouse. Late on the threadbare Rovers simply win the game through sheer willpower. Toulouse will not get a better chance than this and I do believe they are now relegated.
  4. Not buying the so called Huddersfield injury crisis. They recall Louis Senior from his loan and then can't find a place for him in the 17.
  5. Credit to Hull that's a good win that puts them back in the play off picture. For Toulouse losing 2 home games running has put them in a very precarious position. Twice they've scored early and then conceded several tries without reply. With only one remaining home game and 5 away I think Toulouse are doomed especially since they have not won an away game all season.
  6. Wakefield might easily have won their previous 2 games so IMO this result was coming. Excellent performance especially defensively and I now think they will survive.
  7. Rovers started the game with 14 players missing and finished with 19 missing after picking up another 5 injuries. I really feel for young Charlie Cavanaugh on his debut getting a horrific injury a dislocated knee. The 'good' news for the player and Rovers is that the knee was put back into place. That's about as good as good news gets for Rovers right now. Another teenage debutant Connor Moore had to leave the field soon after he arrived with a rib injury. Danny McGuire gave a measured and articulate after match interview. The positives? We didn't concede 60. We were not nilled. Bevan French didn't score 7.
  8. Rovers have three quarters of their salary cap unavailable for this game so clearly it's a matter of damage limitation. There are several names in the 20 man squad that even Rovers fans will be unfamiliar with but prop forward Zach Fishwick who turned 17 a month ago returns after recovering from covid. Under Danny McGuire and Brett Delaney Rovers have lacked nothing for effort and enthusiasm they are certainly going to need those qualities tonight.
  9. He's played 2 games for Rovers now and has been impressive in both. Very glad his loan has been extended to the end of the season.
  10. Wakefield Trinity played very well today and deserved something out of the game. The two goal kicks from Lino which both hit the post were crucial. Even so to get to 80 minutes at 12-12 they deserved a point and to be deprived of it and possibly their league status by the gimmick of golden point was a travesty.
  11. Rovers 14-0 down early on, 2 players left the field not to return and a brutal early penalty count 5-0 in favour of Warrington. It looked like a long night for this decimated Rovers team. We've been playing a prop forward who only turned 17 a month ago and even he was absent with COVID for this game. The task looked hopeless and I had a slight chuckle at Danny McGuire's pre game optimism of a play off place. No doubt the talk will focus on a below par Warrington team but goodness what a win for a scratch Hull KR team tonight.
  12. For the 4th week running Rovers had a key forward out of the game inside the first 10 minutes. Captain SKD not long after with a nasty throat injury which had him sent to hospital. Rovers were shorn of several key players and seemed to be running on empty in the first half and were a little lucky to be only 0-4 at HT. Second half a different story and at 14-4 it seemed just a matter of how many. Rovers invited Wakey back into the game with a silly DG and subsequent concede a try from a short kick off. Ended up a cliff-hanger but Rovers hung on. Rovers have a very good team for 2023 so let's just get this year out of the way safely.
  13. Glad you are impressed with 2 teenage Hull KR front rowers, 17 year old Zac Fishwick included but I'm expecting young Fishwick to make a big impression. Both teams are decimated and out of form I think you know this.
  14. I put a few quid on Leeds after a scintillating display last week. It quickly became apparent that this would be a far more attritional affair and at half time the Radford formula of big forwards and even bigger backs had me wondering if I had backed the wrong horse. I needn't have worried. Leeds were very good in the second half and Greg Eden in the spine was an accident waiting to happen.
