Match Thread: Featherstone Rovers v Leigh Sunday 2nd September 2018

Recommended Posts

This all stems from mis management at the top in my opinion. The squad was never big enough so start with, add injuries to that and releasing players due to gambling all in on the top 4 and here we have it. The reliance on the Rhinos to bump up the numbers only gets you so far as seen now. Numerous occasions this season we’d have struggled to put 17 Rovers players on the pitch. It’s time for Mr Campbell to move on, thanks for your great woark but I think there needs to be a fresh approach. Build again with a reserve squad especially for occasions like today.

Why on earth can’t they take four players on loan from Fev Lions or some other Amateur Club ??

Because we're past the signing deadline for registering new players.

Thanks for that.I genuinely didn’t know so in hindsight this should have been done earlier like Leigh did.If I was an amateur player I would be chomping on the bit to have a chance of playing for my home Team.

Well, today is going to be difficult to watch. 14 players. No forwards to interchange. Walk over. 50+ for Leigh today. 

50?  at least got on the scoreboard which wasn't even working ?

Clearly we don't need 17 lol. Seriously though, I wondered if the lads would turn up. Amazing performance given the circumstances. All 14 played for the shirt!

 

If you were a stay away get the DVD.

I stand by my earlier post, 5 day turnaround for those heroes today. All the players were outstanding today, what an effort!!

I agree, doesn’t make the situation acceptable.

Obviously didn't see the game, but what a win. What were Leigh like?

Obviously lost a few (haven't we all) No spark in the middle. Reynolds quiet.

Leigh fans near us said too many not trying / not turned up?

Whatever is said I feel we should give the 14 that played the highest plaudits. Davis at centre was a revelation. Great tackles by Hardman and Misi played his socks off. All in all no matter how Leigh played we did wonderfully well in the circumstances.

Leigh did try but Rovers tackled for their lives, another win to live long in the memory!
