  1. Yes, me too in Spain, I was surprised it was available. Sky Go and BBC iPlayer no longer available abroad..
  2. McGowan Walshaw Ward An enjoyable watch on The Sportsman, with The Beast expert on co commentary!
  3. Credit to the lads today, always in a game against an unbeaten side, who just had that extra pace, power and guile near our line. Frustrating first half where 3 mistakes led to 3 tries in the next set. And after HT if Jimmy & Browny had gone left we had men over against loads of offside defenders. Instead we concede 6 points! Ifs and buts, but sometimes we're a fantastic side to support.
  4. Agreed. I thought Walshaw too as he was remonstrating with the ref. He maybe got it for pulling back a runner or a late tackle? And yes it was a chaotic last 60 seconds….needless too, though I did think it was a deliberate ball steal on Buchanan. If that is correct about the 5 tackle set, that’s shocking. Almost a game changing moment as we lost our way for 5 minutes resulting in the try, and a few lost heads. Deserved the win though. We are getting better, although our game management is not up to last years yet, understandably after losing Gilmore. Jimmy is looking better each week though, full of confidence and that conversion from the touchline was match winning.
  5. McGowan Morton Kibula Both sides very average today. That try just before HT was a killer. How many offloads culminating in a knock on with 2 minutes to play!? Just complete the set and kick to the corner. We never looked like scoring second half.
  6. 24 hours later and I’m still struggling. Totally outplayed in every area of the field. White Kear Leak
  7. Leak - constant threat with the ball. Hirst - fantastic first spell. Meadows - got better and better as game went on.
  8. Hello DD, I would like to join in this year too. We’ll be at the boxing game too hopefully.
  9. Agreed about the defensive effort. Super human efforts to put giant, quick forwards (not mentioning those massive centres/wingers) on their backs. That spell from 10 minutes to 30 was incessant, brutal RL. Those 3 tries were just the result of the 4 or 5 committed players in every tackle just losing that yard against their fresh interchanges. But nothing but respect for those lads who put their bodies on the line for the full 80 minutes. We are all now just dreading the announcements of players leaving. Hopefully limited now after such a brilliant season….
  10. Wow! Watching on Premier Sports in Spain. I usually go for backs, but today full marks to the forwards. McDermott sent in his biggest boys and boy, did we stand up to them. Manning Walshaw Blake Mentions to Brown, who the commentators acknowledged they couldn’t put down and of course Leaky, a real game changer. Proud. See you in Leigh.
  11. I had Radio Cumbria too…it was hard to tell we had scored….the masters of under reaction
  12. Gotta agree with Srcim there… I’d be happy with 5th at the moment. We look tired and key players are struggling with fitness or form. I’m not sure we’ll win another league game, but need some sort of form returning for the play offs, that’s the important thing. Barrow away? I’ll take that now…
  13. Agree with most of the sentiments so far. Best team won, I can’t recall them making any real errors that we capitalized upon. 3 games in 9 days was always gonna be tough. They looked quicker up the middle, and made extra yards in contact than most teams we’ve played this season. Disappointed with the first 2 tries on the last tackle and if I’m right, did they score 2 tries in first half in the sets after Perry knocked on? And a try in the second half after a poor penalty?. We were leggy, but the errors gave us no chance. Not disheartened in the slightest. We know this team on its day can beat anybody.
  14. Manning. Even by his high standards, his tackling & ball carrying tonight were immense. Brown Leek. Looked far more comfortable when both were on the pitch.
  15. How do the play offs actually work this year?
