  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!!

  7. 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....

  8. 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.......

    How we respond on Thursday will give us a good idea of where we're at. We have just played our poorest for a long time and nearly won away at Catalans outscoring them on the try front. Id hope we cannot play that badly again this season. Atkins could do with being dropped and a couple of others shouldn't feel safe....including Jack Hughes.He seems to think his spot is untouchable

    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.....

    Also travelling there and back in one day is NOT a good way to prepare and play in a harsh contact sport like ours.

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

  11. 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....
