I expect the lads to give this a real go straight from the whistle.

We should see some aggression in defense and some go forward in attack.

They are in a far better place fitness / preparation wise than for a long time at this stage of the comp and have the mindset of a side looking on the up.

They just need to temper the above, keep it under control and stick to the game plan.

Up the Fax.

Today's game.
Negatives.
Nowhere near enough time spent in the right half of the field due to distinctly looking out of sorts, penalties and errors hugely restricting our attacking opportunities.

Positives.
Being able to score 4 times in spite of the above, showing what we can do when we get in the right half of the field.
Having the fitness, energy and guts to keep going literally to the last minutes to get 2 of those scores.
The 2 points.

I feel the start of the season for us has always been a tough one and playing Sheffield, who are always a very tough team, as not going to be easy. So, we took the lead, had a sin bin went behind on the score board, equalised, went behind then came back to win!! I think that shows we have some grit and determination and we can adapt to win a game that was almost lost. A good first week. Up The Fax

Positives for me were

Oli Roberts how he is not in the giants first team I don't no he was man of match for me ran like he wanted to be here not like a typical DR who does not care

Ability/Grit to come back when all was lost

fitness levels looked better than previous years

the crowd was good for a seagulls game


Negatives

The ref as to be one of the worst I have seen. Paul Brealy clearly scored at worst he could of give a drop out but instead he gives 20 meter restart.
before that worrincey pushed the ball out so why was a drop out not given plus many more mistakes

60 minutes of the game we went missing but when we played we played well. How long is Moore out for we missed him yesterday. Also where was Broughton and Robinson

Part quotes.
"Worrincey pushed the ball out so why was a drop out not given plus many more mistakes."
The ref gave offside from the chase encroaching within the ten so he gave a penalty to defense instead of a drop out.

"How long is Moore out for we missed him yesterday. Also where was Broughton and Robinson."
Brandon should be straight back in for Fev having now served his ban likely as a straight swap for Carlisle who came off for a head injury if he fails the follow up assessment.
"Broughton had a slight knock and Robbo will likely come in for Rovers.

Poor performance but we managed to win. Its hard to say where we are after that as I don't expect Sheffield to be in the top5 at the end of the season and despite all the ball they had I didn't think they caused us too much trouble and it was just the pressure of the repeat sets that broke us down. A couple of bad calls went against us with the JWH knock on that wasn't and a player basically sin binned for been over aggresive which put us under a lot of pressure and lead us to only really have 2 attacks on the Sheffield line in the first half.

2nd half again we were really not at the races with poor discipline and poor handling hampering us but I would love to see the Roberts no try again as firstly it looked like the Sheffield player had both hands on the ball before Roberts stole it to ground it with the ref confirming he thought Roberts had the ball giving the held up signal but then giving a turnover for the double whammy.

Player wise I thought Roberts stood out and I also thought we missed Robinson, as well as McGrath took his try, Robinson offers so much more bringing the ball out from our own line. From what we have seen so far this season it is going to be so important for any top 5 push that we get some quality players from Huddersfield.

Spot on assessment.Actually thought we'd lost the ball (again) when the ref gave us another 6 for the decider so that sort of balanced up the no try-which was a difficult call.
