Hopefully it's not a false dawn, but sounds encouraging.

Yes an actual enjoyable game with a win at Odsal and some good rugby league played. We looked very good in that first half, carving them open and we marshalled them well in defence so credit where credit is due.

For a full time outfit, I was surprised by Newcastle’s performance although their fans were calling for the coach to go which might explain things. I’d like to think the amount of dropped ball was down to our good defence.

Some shoots of recovery. Concerns over the drop off in fitness / concentration second half but as someone said we snapped out of it before it was fatal.

Keep building away quietly and give us something to turn up for aswell as a new name on the coaches door

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!



Speaking of fixtures, does anyone know why there us a week off after the Sheff away game on 12th June. We dont play Dewsbury at home till the 26th. No fixture on the 19th. Am i being thick and missing something glaringly obvious?

I wondered that myself (the reason for the gap not the thickness obvs).

It is a mid - season international break.However,Jake Webster has fitted in a Testimonial game at Keighley on Saturday 18th June.
Some quality,former international, players turning out for him.
No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Nige has forsworn the biscuits for a fortnight and, with the savings, is re-laying the Odsal pitch? :)

If he forgoes the Spicy Cottage in Wibsey for a couple of months we can finally build the 'Wembley of the North' :lol:

Holroyd got a 10 match ban for punching. We’re not seeing him for a bit. Also the Leeds forum says Mustapha got sent off in a reserves game so he might miss a few as well
Pollsters doing Excellent job - say recent polls.

TEN GAMES! :CRAZY: Haven't seen it but it was suggested on here that it was in retaliation for a "low grab". Did the aggressor cop a ban as well as a mitt full?

You are defo not the RFL's favourites as so many other Yorkshire clubs like to suggest you are.

Bongser thought that (after sine die became legally iffy) nine games was max. Please educate him.

Good luck against The Vikings. :thumb:

10 games, you could argue maybe harsh (but he's only himself to blame) but I'm stunned Shorrocks only got half the punishment for the punch to the back of the head, which is far more dangerous IMO
