  1. Not sure we can take much from today except a bit of spirit in defeat. Never looked like scoring and too many last tackle barges towards the line. Our try came from one of our few attempts to pass it through the hands. Big mistake not taking the 2 points on offer just after HT and get level, but no guarantee we’d have kicked it this season as we have no consistency there. Not sure where we go from here, but our recent performance levels don’t warrant a play off place. After the last 3 years I can’t write this squad off just yet, but only a complete transformation in 3 games will do.
  2. I agree with PD, it’s all about re finding some kind of form this week, play with spirit and compete for 80 minutes. It might not be enough on Sunday, but it will give us something to take into those last 3 games, all of which are winnable. I think we only need 2 wins to scrape in as London and Widnes have some tough fixtures. Last chance saloon for me this one. I’ll be there.
  3. Agree, miles off today. Their yardage in the tackle was massive, we just couldn’t get to grips with their runners, even Blackmore looked decent. Lilley had a great game where everything he tried came off. They played like their team sheet looks on paper… These 2 games just need writing off, what I feared about mentality was right, but who can blame them? These lads have fronted up for 3 seasons now so I have no doubt that after next Saturday we’ll get back into the grind. About this time last season when we went on a poor run, I remember speculating on here that we’d not win another game, and then we timed it just right for the playoffs. Hate losing to Bradford, we manage to do it far too often, but the potential play off meeting will be a different game.
  4. Yes Stuart, I will join in too. Elland Road or The Mount on Sunday??? I’ll see you in the nine oil….…the football season can wait..
  5. I though we showed them too much respect in the first 20 minutes, but in the end, best team won. Bit like Toulouse when we were well in the game at HT, then overpowered through the middle yesterday, and by pace in Toulouse. Their pack looked stronger, but how much did last week take out of ours? and we were missing Browny. If Leaky had been on when we had those repeat 4 sets before HT, we’d have scored… And agreed, I though officials were awful, so inconsistent. We are where we are, top 2 should stay there, we just need to get in those play offs, in form and without injuries. Then anything can happen
  6. Brown Reilly Gledhill First 25 minute spell awesome from these, York just couldn’t handle them. Platform set for those 2 tries before HT. But Hodson, Manning, Leek superb, I could go on, 1-17 outstanding, hungry and driven. Proud
  7. Manning Buchanan Reilly At HT we were well and truly in the game. Weather conditions were good for us and we looked composed. Then they pretty much blew us away second half. Much quicker and dominated field position. No complaints, best team won, but I’ve a feeling we could be back there come September….
  8. Hooley Manning Meadows Fabulous today from the boys and again any of the 17 could easily be in that top 3. That was as complete a performance as I've ever seen at the Mount.
  9. Meadows - class act. Buchanan - Never stopped. Hodson - Ran some tough carries and always made yards
  10. Don’t know how we won that. Never really got going, conditions awful, error strewn for the best part of it. For 75 minutes, their half backs looked the difference with intelligent kicking and even a 40/20 which resulted in penalty for them to draw level. Then in last 5 minutes, they miss a drop goal attempt and kick early in the count with numbers outside….then up steps Jimmy and he wins the game!! Never question the effort again though, tough place to come, full marks for sticking at it to the death. Big 2 points.
  11. Tickets online for £16 adults, £20 on the gate. Good saving on 2 of us. £1 booking fee though.
