Very much agree with what Daz said, but anyone who thinks the Giants are dull and predictable needs to take their head out their backside, and maybe stop listening to abysmal commentary teams. 

Awful today, poor for the last few weeks but 4th best attack in the league, try scorers all over the park and some absolute belters scored this season 

Awful end to a

I'll tell you what - this Salford side are up there as good and as entertaining as any team i've seen in 35 years, they are exactly the sort of side and the brand of Rugby i want to see be crowned champions, they are a joy to watch despite twice in recent weeks doing that to us!!

We were pathetic today, absolutely pathetic, we could have had 20 men on the field and still wouldn't have looked like scoring out there.

Awful, slow, 1 man rugby or passing to the next guy in the line who were all stood still, missed tackles, lazy efforts, ill discipline, there was no graft, no urgency, seemingly no will to fight back.

We never once ran fast like they did, we ambled/jogged forward with the ball, we didn't run through tacklers like they did, we didn't offload like they did in fact we did nothing, zilch all game.

I am so disappointed that a season that offered hope to us Fartowners fizzled out with a nilling at home where we have been so dominant all year.

Salford ran hard, fast and with purpose, they tore holes in our usual solid middle time and again and threw the ball around and had us on the back foot all afternoon, their support was terrific and noisy, where the hell do they all go on a home matchday though?.

They and Rowley deserve every accolade they get between now and the end of the season, they are a superb team.

Congratulations and good luck to them, back to the drawing board for us!

Great post, Daz. Can't understand why we don't get more fans at home. But we have terrific away support. Old Trafford will be buzzing if we get there.

Awful end to a bloody great season 

4th best attack in the league but in terms of converting territory/possession to points, far worse than that.

I'll ask again, who doesn't think that this is not Chris Hill?

 

Check out those double negatives old lad.

Did you say who thinks this is Chris Hill? If so, then not me - too much upstairs.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

The Red Devils would have got 50 points easily if Brodie Croft hadn't had got that knock.

Massive  rethink for Ian Watson in the close season with signings and tactics. If he persists with his 5 drives and a kick they will be in a relegation struggle

Thats a stretch, Giants are a strong team and solid at grounding out results, cup semi where they dismantled KR . Just didnt seem to know how to chase a game.

Salfotd are like a well oiled machine, despite Croft missing the 2nd half they didnt miss him, defence wins matches, can see maybe Escare coming in for him at saints.

I hope not, he was awful last week against Warrington. Rather see Chris Atkin play there.

With the style of football they play it's difficult for them to play catch up football. There is very little flair in there play it's all about grinding the opposition down and if they doesn't work they don't appear to have a plan B.

Watson .has reached the limit of his ability.

Afterall, he's had about 4 weeks since we beat them at the JJB and he couldn't find a way to fix the problem today, he's just a one trick pony: strangle  the opposition  with territory and force a mistake.  Today proves he's 'old hat' and Salford have moved things on in a way he has no answer to. 

Richard Marshall is looking for work.

I must admit I've never seen the hype around Fages. This match is just another example of why.

He didn't play well today but neither did Huddersfield. He has won 3 grand finals with St Helens.

I don't think he gets enough credit because he is French (I thought you had been very positive about him for France and said what a miss he was)

However you can't say it is all hype, that would be like someone saying they didn't rate Field or French!

Ricky Bibey also won Grand Finals - not necessarily a reflection of an individual. He was always solid for Saints, made his tackles and didn't make many errors, but also was rarely outstanding, limited kicking game, limited creativity and made the wrong decision at times.

Winning Grand finals in a champion team proves nothing.

I think the opposite, I think he gets hyped up because he is French. Bosc was similar.

I don't see your comparison with Field and French at all.

We just disagree on our opinions of him as a player. It's no big deal.

I disagree. Not many sides can afford to carry passengers and win 3 grand finals in a row. 

I mean that even though I don't like Wigan particularly, I can be open minded enough to see French And Field are excellent players.

Yes, that's an accurate summary.

When did Ricky Bibey win a grand final? 

Edit

I don't think he did but no problem.
