Firstly let's forget about the rights and wrongs of DR,there were 2 teams on the pitch today ,one was well organised,disciplined,reasonably creative and very passionate,the other was Fax.5 drives and kick,no real breaks and a complete lack of anything new.We are going backwards at a rate of knots and RMs future must be under discussion at BOD level although I am led to believe that the kings in waiting are Grix and Murrell which does not fill me with too much hope as they are not currently having much positive influence. The answer lies at York but why should a progressive young coach leave there and come to us.Change is needed,it should come from the top but is there anyone there to do it!!

Simple answer is No.... No money to do anything and no balls to do it when it should have been done 12+ months ago. RM has done nothing to develop the club in 5 years. We're no better now than we were 5 years ago. In fact is say the squad is now worse. Zero halves, zero ideas cos Murrell, White and Jonno aren't good enough

Amazed at how poor you were. Genuinely expected a comfortable 'fax win

You urgently need to sort out your discipline. It was like watching under 12s

I wasn't joking when I put on the Fev forum that it would be a comfortable Fev win. I am not shocked in the slightest. Failure to fix obvious problems in the team along with his general stubbornness will be his downfall. Lets just hope it happens before the club falls apart.

Sadly I'm not sure it will... His poor recruitment and inability to see problems was always going to come bite us on the backside.... He rules the roost at the club which is ridiculous and I see nothing but a slippery downward spiral now unless changes and big ones happen quickly... We both know there is no money to do that with a gaping hole in the finances now waiting in the wings too...

From day one of the pre season up to now the team sheet has changed back and forth I don’t know how many times but whoever has played although individuals may have had a good game, as a team they looked leaky in defence and clueless in attack.
Sorry to say it but so far this campaign, performance wise, team wise and the way they are as a unit they look like strangers who haven’t played together before and the poorest Fax side over the last few years.

I'm sorry but i think this thread needs a bit of realism......

Were we poor today? Yes

Have we under performed for the season to date? Yes

Has our discipline and completion rare been diabolical so far? Yes

Have we lost away at Widnes and Fev before? Ermmmmmm, Yes!

I get that people are frustrated with our current form (myself included) but the strides we have made in the recent years under Marshall are the biggest I've known in a long long time. We now have a reserve side we can be proud of, we now have a link back with the local amateur clubs which has been missing for years, we have finished in the top 4 twice in the last 3 seasons, we have a stable financial grounding, we have a team full of fax lads wanting to play for our club, we have various supporters club and trusts that are gaining momentum and constantly growing.

I get that its the entertainment industry and people want us to play exciting but id rather we built from the ground up rather than to spend money we don't have just to "entertain". Look at Widnes, I'm sure they would rather be in our position than to be where they are right now, people need to look beyond the end of their nose!

Up the fax!!

Well said

My thoughts exactly.

Said before on here where do people expect the money to come from. Let's spend too much and end up like Bradford and Widnes

Fev have a few super stars.... no squad depth and reliant on DR.

Look what happened last year didnt end too well did it.

Bottom line is the league is made up to enable Toronto to go up. That's what super league want.

Oh and while I'm on my soap box.

Amateur game on it's backside.. Again super league taking too many juniors away.

How many actually make it from academy.

Then ones who don't...How many return back to game.

Look at Brandon Moore and Jono...didn't make it at Cas....bet Moore is one player been looked at by super league clubs.

Not every player is ready by 19
