  1. RSN

    Swinton Away

    Think calling the club a shambles isn't true. We recruited well at the start of the year but have just fallen short. There's a combination of a lot of things as to why the team hasn't picked up results, but I don't think calling the club a shambles is due to that.

    Very much the story of our season in a game. Start the game on top with good terrority, have 5 or 6 sets in their 20 and don't score any points. They get a couple of sets in our 20 and score 2 tries and all of a sudden we go into half time behind or at least in a contest. This has happened in: Sheffield (H) Widnes (A) Swinton (H) Dewsbury (H & A) and now Swinton away. Essentially what happens is games we should be comfortably ahead our heads drop, opposition gets confidence and we lose the game. The same scenario happened today. Few decisions went against us but with our territory in the 1st 20 we should have been 2 scores up. They scored on both their visits to our 20. I can't put my finger on why we are losing but I think it's 4 or 5 things a game where teams are marginally better. Example of Swinton today, much better at game management they were very good at slowing the game down, lots of pressure on the kicker on last tackles, they knew we offloaded a lot so we're always sniffing round for offloads, they knew we concede tries on the edges so sharply shifted the ball their. They read our plays so always got up on the right man and shut them down. I think things like these we aren't doing which are costing us, the league has stepped up a level since last season and I don't think we have gone up with it. I also think we have a slight mentality problem which stems from us only winning 1 in 13 or whatever it was. It's a shame because the squad has real potential but the odds of us staying up are slim.

    Thought we were pretty unlucky today the committement was 100% there. There was a blatant knock on and a forward pass in the lead up to their 1st 2 tries and against sides like Leigh we need that luck. I do believe this side can get wins against any side in the league, but too many times this year we have fallen short in games we should have won. The local lads should be enough to get out of Div 1 if worst comes to worst. On a more positive note I thought Cresswell was the best player on the pitch today and has been outstanding since injury and Carter seems to be maturing every game and does not look out of place one bit.
  4. How can the incident be put on report? They've seen the shoulder charge, it's blatantly to the head as you have a player on the floor unconscious asking his trainer what happened. Can't see the logic in that at all. Toronto lose a player for the rest of the game due to a head injury and its penalised the same as a ruck infringement. Absolutely bonkers.
  5. Red card for me personally, shoulder charge to the head off the ball has to walk.
  6. Yeah I agree should have been a red card. In my opinion if someone throws a punch, the opposition does not throw one back and they continue to throw it has to be a red card.
  7. Do they always do the anthems before Toronto games?
  8. I think this has been a brilliant game to watch im unsure why people are complaining.
  9. Toulouse were back to normal today against Barrow, they've struggled for a bit with injuries but with key players back they looked too good against us. Too much strength pace and power plus some skillful halbacks.
  10. Got beat 36 - 6. We didn't play badly to be honest. Combination of them being a very good side, not getting any 50/50s and a few individual errors cost us. Not a fan of slagging refs off but the way he reffed it was bizarre. Literally doesn't blow for anything for 60 minutes and gives them most decisions and then spends the last 20 minutes evening the penalty count up with penalties which weren't even penalties. York fortunately scored last minute against Dewsbury which has helped us. Massive game next week.
  11. I'd go the same except I'd maybe put Puara on the bench for a bit of impact coming off the bench. Sunday is definitely winnable after the last few performances.
  12. Shock the RFL putting the semis closer to Widnes and Leigh rather than the Yorkshire clubs #conspiracy. Only joking.
  13. I'll be shocked if Leigh and Widnes draw each other. Leigh at home to Sheffield Widnes at home to Batley.
  14. Better side lost according to pretty much ever Leigh fan who came over to the barrow fans. 2 even sides in a very tightly contested game. Unfortunately game breaker was when we were 16 - 18 up we kick on the 5th and Johnston is blatantly shoulder charged, they break off the kick win a penalty and square it up. The touch judge who was 5 yards away should be dropped. The turnaround from the side needs to be comendended. They were absolutely superb.
