Re: Next season

At the risk of banging the same old drum, it doesn't matter how many new players you get in if there are no set play tactics and no overall playing plan to weld them into, You then have to rely on good players being able to make it up on the day and that only works if the opposition don't do their h...

Re: Versus Salford

It doesn't make any difference but was Marshall injured when he went off? Same for Flower who never came back. Although Partington and Smithies have been outstanding this season, they looked as if it was a match too far and we have run them into the ground. Need to be more careful next season. Still...

Re: Referee for Friday’s Semi Final 2 Playoff

It didn't make any difference but they were the Dream Team. Dudson's 'try'? Double movement - never! Lussik grounding the ball short and not moving forward - not a problem. Farrell in one on one ball steal attempt - definite penalty and so on and so on. I hope, in a sad way, that they get the Grand ...

Re: Versus Salford

A well-coached average team will always beat a better team that is badly coached.

Re: My team for next week

Probably less than he has played hooker. If we're not going to use his pace at full-back, put him at centre instead of Sarginson. It's currently a bit like buying a Ferrari (other makes are available) and leaving it in the garage, except for the odd 10 minute shopping run. I wouldn't play Navarette ...

Re: Disciplinary news arising from Saints v Wigan clash

Sorted out very well by the referee on the night, despite Coote holding his jaw and receiving a head check by the physio when he had been hit on the shoulder.
Nice try Lachlan.

Re: 19-man squad vs St Helens

Not sure where my long post went (probably for the best) but: Marshall and Burgess were excellent under the high ball and the 2 tries were good and that's about it. I know we had a beaten pack but Powell and Tommy just didn't turn up. Bear in mind that even with an influx of new players, we will sti...

Re: Referee for Friday’s Semi Final Playoff

Players seem to respect him and his matches seem to run smoothly. That will do for me.

Re: Sam Powell injury fears after Wigan Warriors' play-offs win

No, we need someone that can pass from the floor with speed and accuracy. Which certainly wouldn't be Sam Powell. He has lots of qualities but not those. You basically want to play french at 9 for the occasional opportunity to use his pace and scoot to try and catch the defence offside and make a b...

Re: Sam Powell injury fears after Wigan Warriors' play-offs win

It’s not just defence, it’s about distribution, vision and good decision making. Hooker is arguably the most important position in modern day rugby league. Horses for courses for me, it should be either Tommy or Amir. We made a mistake by not reinforcing the No, 9 position this season. Which would ...
