  1. I've had a note from the club asking me for my views on why I didn't attend and I've completed the questionaire, so give them their due, they are at least trying to find out why the attendance was so low and what they can do about it in the future.
  2. Very disappointing end to the season, but let's keep things in perspective. If someone had offered us at the start of the season that we'd handsomely beat St Helens to lift the Challenge Cup at Wemble but fall out fo the play-offs at the first hurdle, I'd have certainly taken that and I think the majority of other clubs fans would ahve done so also. Onwards and upwards and I'll be renewing my season ticket as soon as they come on sale!
  3. Can't understand why we don't just follow the rugby union format - so much simpler. 1st -ve- 4th 2nd -ve- 3rd Winners meet in the final. As said above - this is all about money rather than for the fans or fairness.... I also won't be going on Thursday - I'll go to the pub and watch it on Sky...
  4. It certainly wasn't pretty and the referee wasn't the best but the most important thing was that we won and hopefully that will instill some self belief for the playoffs.
  5. I was there and felt we did our best and showed great character under the circumstances. We looked jaded and tired and disjointed in attack, but strong in defense apart from some errors gifting Salford some tries. The RFL need to look at player welfare and take it seriously.
  6. What a brilliant day. As I said above we went with zero expectation and that's what made this victory so much sweeter. Daryl was out of this world and thoroughly deserved his Lance Todd Trophy and the team as a whole played very well and had more desire than Saints. Goodwin's last ditch tackle epitomised this desire and that was the difference between the sides. Well done the team and coaching staff.
  7. Certainly got fingers and toes crossed......
  8. Looking forward to my trip to Wembley tomorrow and for once I have zero expectations for us. I just hope we put in a good professional performance like we did against Hull FC and see where that takes us... C'Mon the Wire!!
  9. Yes we looked a far more balanced side with Ratchford back. A good workmanlike performance doing all the little things right and three scoreline took care of itself. A great atmosphere in the ground with both sets of supporters being loud but like the team performance, the barmy army were slightly louder! Wembley here we come!!
  10. Yes I feared the worst after the opening 10 to 15 minutes but we slowly played our way into the contest and took control and never looked like losing. I thought Daryl Clark was man on the match and agreed that the referee made some very strange decisions....
  11. Yes a very professional performance
  12. Not the best first half but far better in the 2nd half with alot more aggression and line speed. Josh had a solid debut even though they did try and target him.
  13. I'll certainly be getting mine also.....
  14. I think Lam was at a different game to us.... Very professional performance yesterday
  15. Be very hard to replace him....
  16. I know - wouldn't have looked good for the TV audience either......
  17. Very tense affair but all that matters is we're into the next round. Having said that though - always good to knock out Wigan!!
  18. Very impressive indeed.
  19. I'm only quoting what SP said after the match when he commented that " We came here last year and had a good win with similar preparation." That's the sum total of my knowledge on this I'm afraid.......
  20. We were very poor and yet almost won, so that shows in some respects how far we've come as a club. Lineham had a shocker and bombed certail tries by just not being able to catch a rugby ball. Very few positives to take from the game - let's hope we get the right reaction when we play Castleford.....
  21. Apparently it's what we did last season and we all know how that game ended.........
  22. Yes it was a promising start to the season and I thought Austin looked as though he wanted to be playing for us which was very refreshing.
  23. Really looking forward to Saturday and the start of the season. We've recruited well, and although devastated for Kevin Brown, this is hopefully Dec's time to show us what he can do. Feeling confident that the boys can bring us some silverware this year....
