The backs are struggling against set defences, the obsession to move the ball wide when its not on is frustrating. The pack need to lay a better platform or the whole back line crabs across the pitch, the centres either die with the ball or offer the wingers no option but to cut inside. Williams is kicking behind too much but he's often not left with a better options.

I was due in Edinburgh on Tues for a 2 night stay, but for once took advice from the weather forecasts, i had booked to be back for the game so it worked out ok in the end. I have had updates from Virgin and no trains or replacement buses running yesterday or today.


You did right not coming up mate Edinburgh was at a stand still Tuesday to Friday . No trains no buses no taxis all grounded . The trams were running but they are as much use as a chocolate tea pot . Enjoy your stay when you eventually get up . Edinburgh really is a great place ....but expensive.

Joel has had a great start to the year! Hope he stays injury free. Had a try ruled out for a forward pas, was it forward ? I was in the south so couldn’t see.

I’ve been down on these 2 this year for wanting to move to Aus but Sutton and Burgess were very good. Sutton admitted in the interview after last week he was crap so made a good response.

From east stand it was forward, Joel deserved a try and was a MOM contender

What did we learn from that?
1. Catching the ball is good.
2. Do not wind up the ref or you will be penalised.
3. Running hard with the ball is necessary. :BOW:

I may be in the minority, but I didn’t think that first half was as bad as people,are making out. The lead up play was decent, we spent a lot of time up their end but daft mistakes right at the end of the move spoiled it. Once we sorted that bit, we took off nicely!

We’re proving very convincingly that if we have the ball enough, we’ll trouble the opposition. Our big problem is giving away penalties. It really frustrates me that when we pin a side in their own 10, we always give them an easy route out and it’s time we learned!

Would you take Joe Mellor back? would he be a better 7 over Powell? Is he playing better rugby than dare I say it, wonder boy George?
