    Challenge Cup

    I know - wouldn't have looked good for the TV audience either......

    Challenge Cup

    Very tense affair but all that matters is we're into the next round. Having said that though - always good to knock out Wigan!!

    Hull FC away

    Very impressive indeed.

    Last Night

    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.......

    Last Night

    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.....

    Last Night

    Apparently it's what we did last season and we all know how that game ended.........

    Leeds Rhinos

    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.

    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....

    Grand Final

    If someone had offered us a top four finish and a place in both major finals before the season had even started, we'd have all grabbed at it with both hands. Yes, disappointing to lose both finals, but I for one think we've had a great season and thank all the coaches, players and staff for an enjoyable season. Onwards and upwards and already bought my season ticket for next season.

    Semi-Final v St Helens

    Wigan were my preferred option. Be nice to beat them in the final after losing two finals to them already. Can't wait!

    Semi-Final v St Helens

    Yes I love to see the coaching team really investing in the emotions of the game as well. Shows they care as much as the players and fans.

    Semi-Final v St Helens

    Absolutely brilliant. Lineham - two fantastic finishes and great all round performance from the boys. Two finals in Steve's first year in charge - what a great coaching team!

    Wire v Hull

    Great reaction from the players although Hull were very poor. You can only play what's infront of you though! Just hope we can get some our our injury niggles cleared up for next week.

    Catalan Dragons at home

    Good post Gary

    Challenge Cup semi finals

    It was the most perfect day wasn't it?? And yes, the ground was great and what a fantastic concept to hold both games back to back! Shame Super Benny missed that last kick of the match......

    Top Four - End of Regular Season

    Need to work on setting up a drop goal opportunity and the hooker having 2 options (Roberts and Ratchford) so that the charging defence is split as to who they close down - this way hopefully we'll nail one when we really need to nail one.... Overall, still really pleased with the season thus far.....
  17. If you'd have asked us all before the season started whether we'd have been happy with finishing in the top four at the end of the regular season (before the splits) and be in the CC Semi Final, I'm sure we'd have all taken that every day of the week. Therefore very well done lads - great season thus far and let's hope we can continue into the business end of the season with renewed confidence and hopefully bring home some silverware.

    Top Four - End of Regular Season

    Why not????

    Leeds away

    I think Smith was very much about "play what you see" which is all well and good when you had players such as Briers, Monas and Hodgson in the team to create space, but when they disappeared we had no one to replace them. It suited Sandow's play when he came and he was top drawer for us until his demise. Under Price things are far more structured and I think that suits the players we have and the results are there for all to see. LOng may it continue.......

    Leeds away

    Top result and well deserved. Showed character to come back in 2nd half!

    Castleford Tigers

    Ha ha yes you're right and I think Castleford were desperate for the game to go ahead as they are already behind in the fixture list. I saw Josh's swan dive in the big puddle at the end of the match - just brilliant! I can't remember the last time we won both Easter fixtures, although I'm sure Gary will remind me if we have done so...... The team are slowly coming together and look strong - onwards and upwards!

    Widnes Vikings

    Disappointing 1st half but far better showing in the 2nd half and ran out comfortable and worthy winners. Josh showed great finishing prowess to finish off both his tries - he's going to be a great asset to us.

    Video interview with Steve Price

    Thx Gary - worth the wait. I had the pleasure of meeting Steve and his assistant coaches recently and found them to be thoroughly nice guys who were very passionate about the club. It was great to see!

    Should game have taken place?

    Sky are our pay masters and without them where would the game be???
