Well we won.


Indeed. Total control in the first half. Best half we’ve played all season. We looked good, especially our attacking kicks which were not just high to Gill.

2nd half, Newcastle had nothing to lose, started playing high risk rugby, some of it worked. All in all, a good game of rugby.

Didn’t see what triggered it, but Holroyd was like Brian McDermott back in the day, one punching players to the ground until the Newcastle half nipped in and rabbit punched him to the back of the head. Big ban coming, Rowan won’t be happy.
Pollsters doing Excellent job - say recent polls.

OMG, short kicks behind the defensive line, offloads, support runners, quick(ish) PTB.... it was a bit like rugby league. There's the makings of a decent team. Given a few runners and an injection of urgency, Patton's passing looked different league and we created a bit of space. The Wallace try was the moment of the match for me, a beautiful short pass and Wallace put the burners on.

Mustapha at prop really speeded us up and Walker is an offload machine when given the chance and somebody stood near him. The only thing in Holroyd's favour is he seemed to be walking backwards to get away but he didn't miss. Other than that he looks a good prop in the making.

The sad thing was there was hardly anybody there. I've seen more at academy games.

At 30-0 up I expected us to put the pressure on. Seems like we switched off and let them back into it pretty easy.

Anyone see what Holroyd was like and how the incident happened?


According to Stuart Duffy on another platform Holroyd was on the wrong end of a Flanagan special. He did lose his tin in a spectacular way.

Game had everthing, decent RL, bit of biff, bit of jeopardy when DFJ was left out to dry a couple of times (aided and abetted by repeat penalties) and a heart breaker for them to finish them off. Left the ground smiling...I though I was going to be drug tested....

Moment of the match was Patton 'returning' the tee back to whomever brought it on. At one point it looked like he may have won lover of the match for the decision but the stadium clock is always wrong :D

Whats a Flanagan special?

How did Holroyd handle himself in the biff?

Short term his impending ban harms us with yet another suspension, long term, its good to see Toms got that bit of fire in him, as tremendous a prospect that he is, thats been questioned in the past.

Well, I finally enjoyed a game AND we got a win as a bonus. We were helped by plenty of Newcastle errors, especially in the 1st half, but the team looked energised and far more up for it than in previous weeks. Offloads, grubber kicks, scoots from dummy half, and good defence (first half) - good rugby at last.
Only downside was a bit of dodgy defending down our right wing to let in a couple of quick Newcastle tries.
I do wonder what the Saturday evening kick off time did for the attendance, as the crowd really was pitiful.
Anybody seen or heard the official attendance figure?

I think a Flanagan special is a "Squirrel Grip".

Decent, levelled the offender then landed reasonable shots on three of four more before Hallas could drag him away. Even when the side were separated the the match official were talking he was still simmering.

Sounds like we're starting to play some better rugby. The 2nd half fades remain a concern but maybe we're on the right track?

Away at Widnes on 2nd June the away at Fev on 6th June. Then we're away at Sheffield on 12th June - who plans these fixture lists? No home game for over a month when we play Dewsbury on 26th June (when I'm away). Don't fancy the game at home to Leigh on 3rd July so looks like I'll not be at Odsal until we play London on 16th July!

I think the encouraging thing was that yes, we faded, but it wasn't as terminal as it usually is. They regrouped and scored again. A month or so ago it would probably have been a close thing.
