The same sentiments were voiced a few seasons ago before the Hull KR cup match.

Could be our finest hour.

(Well since the last time we beat them over there as "no hopers" in the cup).

One of the best games I've ever seen. At the end, the whole of the Widnes team, and they had some great players in their side at that time,  couldn't get off the pitch quick enough to get away from the misery they'd had to endure for the whole 80 minutes.  If only we could repeat that performance.

Me personally I'd rather us concentrate on staying in this division.We've got Whitehaven at the weekend at theirs, lets just hope we can get a result at the rec.

not interested in this cup, i would rather us establish ourselves in this division for this season , we are not going to win this cup ok the money from cup run would help  but its not going to happen. lets keep our eyes on staying up this season.

So, my view is that we need to use this game as a warm up for the real game  Bradford next week. No slugging it out , no playing it safe, but to play with flair and speed. Get the ball wide, chip over the top, go for the 20/40 or 40/20. Throw caution to the wind. Practice for next week.

Widnes 52  Oldham 12.   Well. It could have been worse. I suppose. No doubt the lads put up a good performance but the most important thing is that, hopefully, we got through the game without any injuries. Serious or otherwise.

At least the squad can concentrate on games that are winnable. Hopefully no injuries from this game. I see lalar is laughing at the previous post, I wonder what the rest of the teletubbies make of it.
