100% agree re 6 again,   what advantage do you get when 6 again awarded on first tackle? (as he gave us twice and only occasions as well)

That was my feeling too, we seemed to have about two 6 again all game and both early in the tackle count and in our own 20, they seemed to get about 15 of them!

Sometimes you don't know what they are even given for, if its a penalty they have to signal what it was for, would it be so hard to make the rule you signal set restart then show what it was for? It seems they give set restart for things they would never give an actual penalty for, it seems a cop out Sometimes.

It makes perfect sense to me! 2 players out in Workington, drinking the night before a game.

Taking the ###### out of the club and the fans, the fans who pay their wages!

Agree , I don’t like it . And when you’re at the ground you’ve no idea what they’re for or sometimes  that they’ve even been signalled . Because it’s not a pen I think refs throw them out like confetti . Yesterday the six again and pens against us must have nearly rivalled the score . I think refs now are to involved , to fussy and have to much influence on games , some of that being down to the at times ridiculous protocols that have no empathy with the game , and drive to over sanitise it from those in charge .

When a team gets rolled down the field easily like we were yesterday,the penalty count is always going to be against you, we were on the back foot all game.

Farrell and Thackeray ran the show form the first minute to the last , they were just too quick and kept spreading the ball out wide causing us all kinds of problems , and when you have Welham and Jones-Bishop down one side you`re in trouble .Discipline was poor once again , pointless putting in a decent kick when you give a soft pen away first or second tackle . A study of videos this season will or should show up the players who are mostly responsible and steps should be taken to sort this out .What was also worrying was that there was a lot of arguing going on amongst some of our players while the match was in progress , not discussions , proper arguing , we played as a unit last week but this week looked all at sea.............and don`t forget Dewsbury have already beaten Sheffield at home !

How many offloads led to tries and chances for them ?  Ive said it before you can count the number of our offloads on the fingers of one finger . It just makes it easier to defend against you 

 

Exactly that, a couple of offloads with defenders drawn in leading to gaps all over the place exploited by class half-back. We seldom if ever off load (instruction?) and our offence is predictable and easily defended.

True . In general though I think a lot of 6 again calls are arbitrary , picky and really don’t need calling .

One right in front of me. 3 or 4 tackles in. Good dominant tackle by couple of Town players pushed the Sheffield player back 2 meters onto his back, 6 again Sheffield !

I think its just which refs you get - Last week was a pleasure to watch Ben Thaler. A very experienced ref, which unfortunately we rarely see. He Didn't put up with players trying to ref game and only got involved when he needed to - only thing i found missing with Thaler he let a few forward passes go, but there again i had a better view in grandstand.

The ref we had v Fev was abysmal - never seen him before and dont want to see him again.

Yesterday ref was as one sided as the score, regarding 6 again etc - but it wasn't his fault we lost.

We just come up against a far more experienced side all round. 

Sheffield as a team have played at an higher level than us for a while as have most of their team. Most of our team have been in L1 for a wile or amateur leagues. The intensity of Champ v L1 is vast as we all know.

We had a bad day - Sheffield had a good day

You can be fit, you can teach moves etc at training but you cant train experience, that is only gained in time and occasionally you will come up against an experienced side and find it hard to compete.

That just about sums it all up I suppose.

Yesterday I had to miss the match owing to family duties.....but I managed to listen in on Radio Cumbria.

And at times I felt like switching it off. (not only because of score)..The commentary duo were ok, apart from one invariably calling Thackeray 'Jamie'...easy error. But it was quite annoying to hear a Town fan, obviously sat nearby them, yelling all sorts of comments, mainly at the ref, it was indeed so very embarrassing....the commentators kept having a chuckle at the loudly hailed observations.....nowt wrong with strong passion though I suppose.

Anyway it wasn't only the ref to blame was it? I've trawled through the post match comments, and one fact I totally agree with is the Town squad lacking 'beef' upfront....mobility may be useful but a powerful pack can dominate most games.

Sad to read of a player's lack of commitment the night before this game...hopefully it's not really true and just a figment blown up by a pessimist?

So it's gonna be a tough campaign, we knew that anyway.......but I hope the club can address the obvious needs for the playing squad asap.......UTT

I thought the other mis-quote from the Barra commentators yesterday was when one of them said, after yet another Sheff try, " so Isaac Hayes will try to kick another goal"--can only think he is a big fan of the 70's movie Shaft.

If you're not of a certain age Isaac Hayes wrote and sang the theme tune to that classic!

Just watched the tries again on the highlights video and sorry to say there’ll be some players who will be embarrassed by their defensive “efforts” on quite a few of them.

 

I’m not prejudiced, I hate everybody equally

Well having missed the game yesterday but listened on the radio it sounded very bad bit having just watched the highlights and trys back awful performance is a understatement there was a few trys where we just gave up and let them have a easy try pretty embarrassing performance all round

A couple of well worked tries,including Town’s but the majority were just soft.

They weren't tries, they were gift wrapped presents.

Well barrow showed tonight you need to break the bank to stay in this league and have that xfactor throughout there squad they may just make the playoffs with ease like the 2 loan signings they made this week were 2 very good impact forwards so why weren't they picked up by us as we've lacked forwards and they would fit the bill

Hi mate, he's a back, switches between full back & half back and could probably play Centre. Not sure if he played yesterday as haven't seen the team.

Thanks Marra, There was a big lad playing at 3 but he looked a bit nervous. Clearly he has the pace to compete, but after his first burst he gained about 50 yards before being tackled and then slowly went very quiet.

The problem is that the spending barrow have just done is unsustainable in this county. Good for their fans while it lasts though
