Bizarre that we keep winning even when we are down and out. Even at 26-12 down, I just had a feeling. Well played Bulls.
(and I feel fine)

Superb result. These comebacks show there is some real belief in this side.

I wouldn't have put this game down for 2 points so I'm really pleased we got the spoils. Need to keep focus and not drop points in the upcoming games that should in theory be winnable matches.

great game today, still a little concerned about how easy a few of the Fax tries were but a great comeback :BOW:

[quote="ifallwerelikemumby"]We only played for 10 minutes last week 30 is a great improvement. Wait till we can play for 60 we will be unbeatable. Still you will moan I suspect. Great performance against one of the divisions strong teams.[/quote]

I do apologise for having a different opinion to yours I look forward to us playing for 60 minutes. Must remember my rose tinted specs for Monday

Can't work this team out. I thought we started quite brightly and moved the ball around pretty well early on. Our defence though (which has been very good all year) was pretty abysmal for some of their tries (especially Robinson) when Halifax went in front we seemed to become really poor. One up carries, our last tackle options were awful. Why do we never grubber it?

But my god we have some steel about us. That's the first time we've won at Fax since we've been relegated! I've seen Bulls teams completely crumble without a wimper when the going gets tough. But this group seem to get themselves up the off canvas and fight back. Yes we can be playing much better, yes they're are issues that need fixing, but we're winning and winning tough games we simply haven't had the mental strength to win for a number of years. If we can get the performance right for a full 80 mins, we're going to be a very dangerous team. We're 2 points off second.

Shout out to Matty Storton who I thought we superb. Players bouncing off him like skittles.

Very happy to come away with the bragging rights from Fax.

Oh how we laughed ;)

I guess this idea of an 80 minute performance is a bit of a myth anyway, in most games the momentum shifts and teams have good and bad spells. This side is far from perfect and I'm sure there is plenty that could be improved but whilst they keep grinding out the results I'm struggling to have too many complaints.

My thoughts were that if we sneaked into 5th this year would be considered a successful return to Championship. We are currently well placed to be in the mix for that so I reckon we're doing fairly well considering the early disruptions in the side.
