Some good decisions for Chris to make for the first match, no one has let him down in these 2 pre season games and several have made big impacts. 

Along with a few additions (soon....) the squad is looking good, though I do think we are still lacking a bit of size at prop.

Dont know who the guy in the red scrum cap was he was our best player while he was on in my opinion, a threat everytime he had the ball. No 25, and he could tackle. Following on from last season the public address system on the popular side was total rubbish. I don't think any speakers were working. Considering the majority stand under the popular side roof I think the least we can expect is to hear who's selected and who's coming on and off. Loads complaining at half time with access to the toilets and smoking area cordoned off till the players were all safely in the bar!, new changing area. When I asked a woman who was part of the security why it was cordoned off she said "We're protecting the players" The backlog of people waiting to get to the Derwent end must have been 100. If any were wanting the toilets, well panic stations. This woman said this was going to be permanent. Well it was a shambles. As for the result well done lads hanging in there to pull off the win.

We look lively when we get a roll on from a quicker play the ball and guys like Henson and Simons run , then play off that . I still think that shows we need a big guy or 2 to punch holes and eat the yards , especially out our own end , but overall Walker impressed me with the show n go and he looked threatening . That combo with Jamie looked lively . We always look fit to

Matty Henson scored it. James Newton missed the tackle. Double win.

He had a good impact when he came on, just as we had lost impetus so it was a very good sub.

He did , and it’s a good job as he certainly stands out !

Well I’ll take that. Desire, passion, commitment and no little skill, good signs from all our new signings with young Walker  looking very good and going by how easy Curtis Teare broke through he’ll be good to watch. 
Not sure which school of refereeing that guy went to, as soon as he didn’t penalise the dump tackle on Cus I thought it could be a long afternoon. Town knock on, it’s a knock on haven knock on it was ripped, town slow to get off player, six again, haven slow to get off, carry on. We got our first six again after 50 mins, unbelievable.

What that second half showed was if we play with quick the balls we’ll be dangerous,  fair play to Jammer for that he was urging everybody on. Well done boys!UTT

To be fair it's not a surprise to see a jameater get confused over what is and what isn't a cup final considering the embarrassing lack of them in their "history".

Did you actually think haven would be anywhere near match fit and not rusty don’t forget u played last week. That’s the scary thing and shows how bad we are because if seen the standard we play at and today was nothing but short of ###### poor 

 But you said "haven would have too much for us". Your words not mine. Keep the excuses coming mate you making today even better

That no dickheads policy pays off doesn't it, all those lads have heart in abundance. At 10.0 down Jammer was trying to up the pace but every time we started to apply pressure the "ref" pinged us. Terrific effort to nick it with that little possession.  At least the haven fans were first out of the car parks! Caine did a great job, Hutchings was good again and it's so good to have a running halfback. Fitzy is the only one who needs to up his game with two new forwards coming in soon.
