The last 15 minutes of the game, or what must surely be the lowest Superleague Crowd ever.

1. Putting the cue on the rack is unacceptable. Momentum is key in a relegation battle and we conceded a massive amount of points in the last 15 minutes and if that "form" is carried over into the start of next weeks relegation decider with Leeds, then we are in deep sh17. Ward should have had them back out on the practice pitch for a 45 minute "beasting" after the game......but no doubt they'll have been told well done.......42-6.........with less than a quarter of the game to go. :FRUSRATED:
2. 750 at best.....and I am being really generous here. That was unacceptable.....Hughes is killing the club with his refusal to spend on marketing. I saw 3 groups of asians in the crowd today with lads cheering on London.....proof that there is a community we can tap into in the area........but he steadfastly refuses to treat the club as nothing other than his toy. It's like he's scared that if we had gates of 6k we wouldn't need him.....and for sure, we were outnumbered by the visitors today. :DEPRESSED:


P.S.
Sorry to those who heard me tell London to "Wake the F34k up". I've curbed the swearing but really....that last 15 minutes was shocking!
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

If we had not let those points slip at the end of the game we would not have been bottom. Still there is always next week to make up the points difference. Bring it on.

Last 20 minutes was disappointed but I wouldn't dwell.
The crowds are low we do have to try harder to get fans from surrounding arena. Hope we can get some bigger crowds for the run in. We have every chance of beating Leeds again there hopeless

I think Danny Ward was spot on in his interview comments that the first 70 mins is as good as we have been this season.

The most disappointing thing about the end of the game was that we seemed to be repeatedly undone by the same thing with such ease.

Must have been even more frustrating for the Wakefield fans though because as good as we were they were very poor for most of the game.

Ref was decent, didn't notice him much apart from one offside decision he got from nowhere.

3-7 was the count with us being pinged a few times for interference. I have to say, the tackle techique is vastly improved from the last time i saw the side......we certainly seem to understand the point of turtling(sic)
Disagree about ward being or having to be happy..... That last 15 minutes could cost us our SL spot..... Our rigjt flank was popped 3 times. On the first or second ay... Unacceptable

In a months time we have Hull KR on a Thursday night. Something needs to be done to boost what could well be a meagre crowd. The effort to draw a decent crowd should start now. On the back of our victory over Wakey. Get out there. Do not just sit back and see what happens.

Thu night never going to be easy, away fans will be rare.
Is it on sky? If so that's going to effect visitors even more.

So no incentive for many away fans.
Same for home fans from the edges of the region, couple of hours in commuter traffic or public transport or watch it on telly.
Suspect a pretty dire turnout
