    . Don’t forget Brad Graham and Ollie Greensmith were going to sign for Batley,so like I said it’s just rumours.

    Not surprised they haven't gone.  They wouldn't have got game all season.  Non of our squad would get a game at Batley.  Just not good enough...

    Brad Graham sign’s new contract for 2023. Must admit didn’t see that one coming.

    Me too.  Cant say Ive noticed him much on the field but lets hope LF has seen something I haven't.....

    I like the fact that we are focussing upon our best young players. This bodes well for the future.

    Let's hop we get couple of "old" heads too.  Dale Ferguson and Danny Kirmond would be a nice start....

    Injuries, working and holidays I've heard. Liam could have brought our players back that have been out on loan but obviously chose not to, says it all about our recruitment. 


    Saw on Twitter that some players had made plans prior to the postponement which is fair enough since our season was meant to end the week before and to be fair there wasn't much point in calling anyone back.  We didn't exactly have a lot to play for!!

    Happen, but NickD is saying he should have been playing from the start - he shouldn't, quite clearly for anyone watching.

    "Clearly" he wasn't as fit as Ferguson, Walton and Peltier to mention but three...  So as Ive said, I'd have had in the team all season...

    So "clearly" not clear to everyone watching........

    He certainly seemed fit enough yesterday. Worked hard in his stints on the field...chatting to him after the game he seemed very relaxed which was good to see

    Cheers.  He was fit enough all along.   Just made the mistake of offloading the ball …..the biggest crime in rugby if you’ve got the coaches we’ve had for last few years.  Bring back Norman Smith I say.

    Left it a day to comment asl didnt want it too seem like l was having a go. l watched this game with hope following the Rams recent upturn in performance but that was nothing short of disgraceful. The whole "l wom't be here next year so who cares" attitude was there for all to see. No team spirit or cohesion and no on field leadership. 

    Today l went to watch North Wales and the difference was clear for all to see. Great seeing Aaron Hall playing well and enjoying his rugby too...

    Aaron Hall should have been in our team all season long.    Problem is BSJ and LG decided he was unfit.   Unlike the rest of our forwards🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Ooooh. If only  that was funny

    I like the word  chunter BSJ,it's not offensive like some on here. I'm afraid i'm going to keep on chuntering until eventually we start winning a few again.

    Don't worry.  I.m confident we'll do London Skolars at home next year😀

    Just to say that a team who only has 30% of possession is always going to be on the wrong end of the tackle count; simple statistics will prove this. Fitness differences also contribute to our infringements as well as a lack of subtlety that only comes from playing regularly at a higher level..

    As for forward passes I thought that he was simply playing to SL rules.

    Whilst much of the moaning is about the referee I don't actually believe that any top ref would have delivered a different result.

    Agree about the SL forward pass comment.  I rarely (as rarely as I can muster) watch super dooper league but when I do I’m astonished by the number of “flat” (in other words forward) passes that go unpunished. It’s seems to be completely different to what goes on in our proper rugby 😀

  10. Agree.  Tough 80 minutes that but the lads kept going and defended pretty well in that last quarter when I thought Leigh might cut loose and run it past 70 points.

  11. Could be 16-12 if we’d taken the two for each of those kickable penalties.  In fact they might not even be 16 if we’d have gone for the second penalty.  Poor game management 😤

    63' | Try Bradford.

    Steve Crossley gets the ball stood still, looks round for a while, runs forward and goes over. 

    Patton converts.


    last thing want to read on your own twitter page. I’d rage if it was on the Bradford page take defeat it’s the manner it’s knowing there giving everything but not good enough on the day. 

    We’re used to it🤣🤣
