I hope you're right, next week is absolutely massive for the club. We need the same again but more resilient in defence and far more respectful of field position, I'm sick of seeing a static defensive line from us this season, I called their try (third?) once field had broken our line, the left edge retreated whilst the middle didn't in effect we broke our own line, the scramble was good to close down one side but they scored going all the way back over again anyway after Holmes failed to wrap the ball tackling French. A little too much of the offload from wigan this evening for me, some of it was top quality enterprising Wigan play and unfortunately some of it slack defending.

I thought the knock on call against Ashton after french had pulled the ball out was really harsh, should have been our ball for a French knock on IMO, then they score. These are the breaks we aren't getting at all but we also need to be better at dealing with hardship the confidence is so fragile at the minute. We badly need an organising half, I like stef and Williams but neither of them are it. Our tactical kicking game is very 1 dimensional IMO, nowhere near enterprising enough.


Really agree on all this. Someone like a Luke Gale who just directs things. Briers in his latter years did just that.

Well done correctly spelling those two words.

If someone responds in a personal way about a post I've made, I'll get personal back. But it's heat of the moment. In the same way that It's heat of the moment when it's sent in my direction.

Top 5 is where I'll think we'll be next season if Powells in charge. Its not particularly brave, just how I see it and reasonable given the additional changes next season.

Should we be aiming for 5th place? Do Wigan and saints aim for 5th place? Your post just epitomises the fans that keep us away from the top table. But carry on with your support of Powell, I'm sure it'll help you sleep better at night

We're beating Toulouse next week. And we'll have another win at least by the end of the season.

Next year, with Powell in charge, we will be top 5. Mark my post if you like.

Anyone disagree.


Top 5? Whats the point in that? Why bring him in to change a culture if all we get out of it is a lousy middling season that we get nothing out of again lol? No, next year we win the GF or he can peas off.

Depends what you're looking for.

Burgess, Ellis and Thaiday for strenth and being a nother prop.

If you want the whole package then Lockers is the best right now.

Luke Gale? We’d be better off with Gail Platt.

Now I’ve slept on it, I’m even more annoyed. Conceding on the stroke of half time AGAIN. We had plenty of possession, come up with 6 points off a kick. Conceding buckets of points down our right side again.

We’re not learning lessons. Just not prepared at all. No resilience.

And there can be no blame put on the fans this week, the crowd made an absolute racket and really got behind them.

It’s time now, it’s as simple as that. There is no plan and no resilience. We can’t attack, we can’t defend, we’re not as fit as other teams, we can’t kick to relieve or build pressure and we’re not united.

We played well, for 30-odd minutes while they coughed up possession time and again, and have 6 points to show for it.

If only we had a young kid with a kicking game who we could throw in for experience. Maybe someone who was involved in most of our best performances this season.

Seriously as soon as we are avoiding the drop ( :PRAY:) Riley Dean should have a chance to develop his game. Behind a better pack (which we will very much have next season) he will be a lot less exposed.

Welcome to last chance saloon. The Toulouse game is, for me, the most important game since the Cullen era and I'm dreading it.

Whatever their limitations they will throw the kitchen sink at us, and if they establish a lead like they did v HKR I sincerely question whether we can turn it round.

Technically and tactically there were things v Wigan that should have been much better - kick protection for Wrench and Thewliss, not putting our kicks straight down French and Fields throat etc.

But we won't fix those issues in 5 days. We'll have to rely on guts, desire, tenacity and spirit. Oh boy.

I see Powell has thrown players under the bus again in his post match interview. You could clearly see the england womens football coach was a class act and when asked what her secret was the players usually went for her composure, clarity and giving them the freedom to make mistakes. Our nervousness all comes down to Powell. There is no joy in our team.

Our performances on the pitch and his afterwards are just not acceptable. I think Amor’s comments regarding being unprofessional we’re aimed at Powell because he isn’t professional it’s all someone else’s fault. Those full time pizzas at Cas always made him look cheap and he is. He’s an absolute shocker and I cannot wait until he’s sacked.

Ps block Gazwire/Daryl it will improve your life

On another note that Michaele for me is having zero impact but not the only one may I add and he looks knackered by half time so needs to seriously improve or could be another waster we’ve signed.
