The 'kicking game' worked v Toulouse when we were winning narrowly and the team was playing well. When not doing so, you need a 'spark' like somebody making a break
So are you saying we shouldn't give Olly Russell a chance ?
I only suggested it because clubs don't have 'backs on the bench' so obviously it's start with him, or not at all.
As for a 'winger' Adam Swift will do nicely.... :D

It was a bit of a ' war of atrittion ' with both teams trying to wear each other out , in the end Fax had that bit more confidence in offloading and speed in getting the ball wide , they are after all a squad that has been together a couple of years now

and yes when chasing a game just keep putting up a kick wont cut it , the kick Woods put straight into touch should have been ' run ' with the centre or wing being the kicker behind the Fax line
Yes they scored out wide twice in the 2 nd half but both times that side was outnumbered , once because it was mcnally making the tackle in the centre to stop them scoring , just good play by a clever player like murrel
Overal not a bad display , and we will get better as the games go on , as long as we dont lose too many players , yes Johnny that applause will cost a couple of games , we cannot afford stuff like that anymore
It could quite easily be a few more weeks before we get any more points on the table , but we expected that anyway

Luke Douglas is only here for a month, so next week will be his final game for us (probably) Unless Saints send him back for another 1 month loan.

I’m saying there is no need for knee jerk reactions - I’m sure Russell will get his chance be it full back or halves at some point. I wouldn’t change the halves at this point, they need time to work together

And Swift was the first name I thought of in all honesty, with one of the other DR from Saints dropping out - possibly give O Donnell a run. Will be a test as to how this DR agreement is going to pan out

Had ben kaye passed his head test then Moore would not have had to play the full game at hooker.. I think fax would of won by more if he had played. Fax are still missing key players but good luck for the rest of your season always enjoy the fax v leigh games.

It isn’t doom and gloom, it is knowing the difference between a good performance and less good one, as I said in the title, “disappointing”.

It looks like you have put together a decent team and certainly your backs look decent at this level but as ive mentioned before you have at least 3 players in the Adamson's and Brooks who would struggle to be starters for mid table championship teams and that is always going to hurt. Add a bit more beef to your pack and those backs are going to score a lot of tries.

Can’t believe nobody has mentioned the huge up and under that did work at the start of the 2nd half that was not only knocked on by the winger, but then one of our players was held back as he tried to touch down. That would have been at least 18-18, but somehow Hewer gives a 20 meters tap, and then goes on to give every 50/50 decision to Fax resulting in 3 tries conceded in 15 minutes. Then as soon as the game is gone at 32-14, suddenly we are the recipient of those decisions.
