Am I wrong, but, at the play the ball if the receiver touches the player , who's just played the ball whilst passing him, then it's obstruction? In which case Bradford first try was ineligible.  Penalty to us??? I know, clutching at straws and we did win the 2nd half.

Not automatically unless the player who had played the ball is actually obstructing an opponent.

No conviction in the tackling for the first half hour, Bradford walked all over us.

If we could expand the play shown in the second half for the full eighty minutes, we'd have come away with a win.

24-0 down after about 25 minutes. The final scoreline tells a tale.

A lot of positives to take away from today, along with a few things to work on. We need to set our stall out during the first ten to fifteen minutes (as Bradford did today). We showed them too much respect instead of making them hurt.

The season is far from over.

Good to finally get a win. First 10 minutes looked like we was going put a cricket score on you. Then you just muscled up. Ref was poor it was more in inconsistent we'd get pegged for holding down you'd be allowed to do it then it would go the other way for abit. We was both getting pens in blocks of 3. Made for a slow game and two sets of frustrated players.

Exactly this. Well said pal ?

Simply can’t start games like we have done in the last few. The touchline defence just wasn’t there, and all Bradford had to do was give it to one of the big props to get it over the line. We also seemed a bit flat-footed in attack and lack intensity. 

However the second half was much better, and if you were watching online you may have thought the Bradfid fans had all gone home. 

If we start playing for 80 minutes we’ll pick up points against Swinton, Whitehaven, Batley etc.

Awful first half. We looked really weak and unmotivated for some reason . Bradford could only score when they got within 10m of our line and we let them camp down there for the first 15 mins and it was game over. Defence on the line was pitiful from just about everyone. Poor Abram had a shocker in the first half but there wasn't too many who could hold their heads up by half time.

Second half was better but not by that much. Intensity in defence was better and we tried moving the ball a bit more but we still looked really stodgy and not free flowing with the ball. So many of the players got the ball and straight away tried to pass the ball but we weren't moving any of their players out of position so we were just going sideways with no penetration into their line.

Massive game next week against a much improved Dewsbury team.

Time to bin Owen off really struggled defensively yesterday Also he doesn’t offer anything with the ball it’s no good getting Wilkinson on when we’re 24-0 down and the game is gone.

From hero to zero for Abram , I like him and think he'll be a real asset when the conditions start to improve but one thing we need to do immediately is move him away from the ruck when defending on our line. Kear had obviously watched the Workington game and marked him as as a weak link and Bradford ran over him to put the game of sight after ten minutes.

We really looked like an average League One side in the first half, agree Owen's not offering enough now on either attack or defence and Charnock has disappointed especially with his  kicking. On a bright note I think we now have a couple of really good wingers and Ince had a promising debut just wish we'd given him more of the ball , a couple of times we could have gone on the blind side and given him a  1 v 1.

Dewsbury looked good and Batley are getting results so it's rapidly looking like to 2 down from 3
