Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Well, we go into this game with some momentum but will that be enough against a team that on paper is much better than we are and historically we always struggle against?  I suspect not but at least last week means we have some hope.

Mind, as BSJ will remind us - its the hope that kills you...

They lost at home to York last week and to Leigh the week before, that that should give us some hope. If the team are up for it and start well, then a win is a definite possibility. Let's hope we can make it three good performances on the trot.

Think Dom Speakman will prove an inspired signing.

I am so used to being disappointed whenever we have played Sheffield that I really struggle to remember our successes against them but I will be there, albeit with little real expectation. Once I have wiped the tears from my eyes after paying their exhorbitatnt prices for the privelege of attending a game in a school field I hope (!!!) to see an entertaining game, at least. If we could take anything from it that would be a big bonus.

Is Chris Annakin still with us?? .... he gives us a real edge in the forwards .... Has Dom signed on or is he on loan from Widnes? .... hoping he has signed.. he made a real difference last week and pushed Paul Sykes all the way for MOM!

I also really liked Connor McGrath .. did we only have him for the one game whilst Gabriel was suspended?

I think Finn should be taking the kicks to protect Sykes's leg ..... Sykes is too important to nearly everything we do!

Chris Annakin severe concussion end of Leigh game so not sure how much longer he’ll be out for. Dom is signed till end of season. And McGrath is here for a month.

Trout the Younger is my guess.

If Yere plays, that is. He has spent most of the season at Doncaster.

This will be a tough one to win and with that strong side the Eagles are putting out I can see only the home team coming out on top:

Sheffield 42-12 Dewsbury 

FTS: Ryder 

MoM: Speakman 

Att: 702

Deep even by your standards BSJ - I assume you were angling after a response ? :kolobok_nea:

Gab not able to get in the 17. V surprised.  I’d have had him and Conor on the wings given recent defensive issues on our right.

I travelled in hope rather than expectation but once again am cursing as we could have won but the evil twins of indiscipline and poor defence strike again to frustrate us. However it was an enjoyable game and we stood up well on attack though McGrath was horribly exposed twice on the wing. The Batley game grows in importance each week....

Shame.

Hrmmph! This was certainly one we could/should have one, but for two silly penalties resulting in two tries and two conversations to one try disallowed for obstruction which a lot of us missed.
