    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.........

  3. 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....

  4. 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.

    One of my frustrations of the modern game with this obsession of expansion outside the traditional areas which never generate huge support and cause travel problems and added expense.

    We have a hot bed of rugby league in Cumbria and yet no real effort to get a Cumbrian Super League outfit.

    A Cumbrian franchise would attract a huge following and help fill stadiums - as well as providing a realistic afternoon out for visiting supporters.

    Loved a trip to the Lake District and a couple of pints in a local pub pre-match. 

    Good post Gary

  6. 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.

  7. 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.......

  8. 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!

  9. With the confirmed signing of Bryson Goodwin and strong rumours linking us to Tyrone Roberts and Ben Murdoch-Masila who made last years "Dream Team", and that Price is about to be confirmed as our new coach - has the revolution finally began??

    Gary - you're normally in the know on these things - any insights??

    Anyone elso on our radar??
