  1. 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.
  2. Certainly got fingers and toes crossed......
  3. 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!!
  4. 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!!
  5. 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....
  6. Yes a very professional performance
  7. 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.
  8. I'll certainly be getting mine also.....
  9. I think Lam was at a different game to us.... Very professional performance yesterday
  10. Be very hard to replace him....
  11. I know - wouldn't have looked good for the TV audience either......
  12. Very tense affair but all that matters is we're into the next round. Having said that though - always good to knock out Wigan!!
  13. Very impressive indeed.
  14. 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.......
  15. 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.....
  16. Apparently it's what we did last season and we all know how that game ended.........
  17. 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.
  18. 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....
  19. 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.
  20. Wigan were my preferred option. Be nice to beat them in the final after losing two finals to them already. Can't wait!
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
