Were basically playing in a league within a league this season, these games against the top teams are inconsequential pretty much. All we need to do is get in and out of them injury free and with as best a points difference as possible.

Thats not to say we go into them with an entirely defeatist attitude, surprise results can happen obviously. But all the clubs expecting to fight against relegation need to be realistic against Leigh, Fev, Widnes, Bulls, Fax etc.

Exactly . I was saying at 20-6 on Sunday that we need to stem the bleeding here, it could be important at the end . And we did . Definitely a season of targeting games and having a limited goal . Looking at last year trying to get 6 or 7 wins is a fair base .

Yeah I think that sums it up well. Four or  Five clubs will be battling to avoid the Two relegation places I.M.O.

Dewsbury beat Widnes twice last year, and Whitehaven beat them 64-6 (albeit Widnes only had 16 men). Widnes blew very hot and cold last year and haven't yet really done anything to prove they are one of the "top teams".

Them and york are the 2 big underachievers from last season but both have recruited well pre season be far better this year

Hmm. York were widely considered to have recruited very well and set for big improvement last year when they recruited Jones-Bishop, Atkins, Cuthbertson, Kirmond plus two new half backs, although they struggled with injuries they still didn't live up to expectations and a few of the bigger signings are no longer with the club. I think they probably will be better this year if they get better luck with injuries but how good they will be remains to be seen.

Widnes have made some fair signings but again they looked good on paper before last year. I can see them being better this year but not sure if they will crack that top 4 or 5.

😂😂😂 must have been a helluva player. I always thought one man didn’t make a team but that missing player obviously did. As I recall there was 4 subs sat on their bench.

No reason we can't go close. Lads didn't do much wrong against a full time Thunder outfit. They just won the arm wrestle and got to the line more on the day. Widnes beating London Broncos 12-34 was no shock the majority of the Broncos side are ex Skolars that Coleman has brought across with him. 

A healthy crowd going too will give them an extra push.  The incentive of the points always helps too.

Not sure what your point is, Widnes only had 16 players due to a lot of late withdrawals and you'd have to be on another planet if you don't think their performance was affected that day, but that's not the point I was making anyway, in fact the opposite, I was pointing out that Widnes were beatable last year.

I know we say this far to often. But that shocking. To the point I cant even remember what it would be for?

Think we can expect this sort of pettiness every week

No I can’t think . The incident where he was knocked out got put on report … i mean surely not !!?

Just looked online it’s for a late hit on the passer. Thunder player also been sat down for two games for the same offence. That’s two players banned for town already this season for late hits.
