I still can believe we lost to batley who are having a poor season and there fans now calling for diskins head.

If that Toulouse try had not been given and we had beat batley we would be 2 points clear of London

My prediction is 4th now. I think we have improved but also the clubs around us who was expected to push on do not seem as good as expected. We need to win the summerbash fixture and hope London slip up as there should be a realistic target of snatching a place in the top 4

Pleasantly surprised to be honest,not the struggle i was expecting this season.Think we will finish 5/6 but it's all to play for.Grady has proved a good acquisition but the decision to sign Mannone seems a poor one.

I cannot see mannone playing again this year. Grix as proved is worth this season and was missed yesterday

What an epic misjudgement if that proves to be the case.Grix has done well but his injury appears to be of long term concern.

Think playing rugby has become secondary to him now.

We are playing good rugby and should be in the mix for a play-off position at the ned of the normal season - the only worry for me would be long term injuries for Grix or Murrell - Grix has been a very influential player and scored tries at crucial points in matches so I hope his elbow injury isn't a major one

Like others, I am pleased with where we are and had it not been for a few brain-fart moments in the 2nd half against Fev and some rank decisions against Toulouse we could have been in a much better position.

Biggest plus is the return of the same passion we had a few years ago which you can see in our defence – we have made some crucial tackles including the one against Oldham the other night. Main worry is that we continue to make silly mistakes with the ball and don’t complete our sets, so we never build enough pressure on our opponents and this is affecting our attack.

On the player front, Mitch has been outstanding; Grix must be the best second row in the league, so let’s hope his injury is not too serious. Salty has been fantastic this year and I think he has improved his game, particularly his decision making and he certainly knows where the try line is. Elliot Morris has continued to improve and he and Woodburn-Hall have fully deserved their places in the first team. Hopefully Chester Butler and Luke Nelmes as well as other reserve players will keep the pressure on the first team. I also think we have used DR wisely when we needed to. Concern will be with the small squad and being light in certain positions, then a few injuries to key players could be telling. It was obvious the other night with Murrell off the pitch that we lost our game management as well as his leadership.

Batley don't look as strong without John Kear. Toulouse have been surprise package. Looks like Hull KR and Fev top 2. Between us , London and Toulouse to make up top 4. Wouldn't write Batley of just yet as 4 points is not out of reach. Oldham looked a good solid side and could see them been best of the rest. Sheffield coming good again under guidance of Mark Aston. A lot to play for all we can ask is we keep in mix for top 4.
Mitch was awesome in 2 games and really lays the platform. Getting back to form he showed in first year. Muzza been great. Even young lads don't look out of place and reserves is showing fruition.

Still all to play for and we have as good a chance as anyone for the fourth spot.
It will likely come down to who from the pack can get some form and impetus at the run in.
