Trinity have Tom Johnstone Bill Tupou Max Jowitt Mason Caton Brown Joe Arundel David Fifita Craig Huby Danny Kirmond and Tinirau Arona ( 9 players ) injured and are forced to play Danny Brough ( unable to train this week) Matty Ashurst and James Batchelor ( both not fully recovered from previous injury ) and a 19 year old making only his second appearance . Then both Ash and Batch have to go off because they have aggravated there old injury so interchanges are limited. Kelepi just still settlitin has to play 80 minutes in 2 different positions.We have one of the lowest budgets in the league but apparently we are crap ! Some people !
If I was short sighted I could become a referee!

All of the above is correct but, with the amount of possession we had, especially in the first half, we were unable to execute a play to score ANY points.
Yes, the game all swung on the interception (the only try of the game) but, against a very, very poor Leeds side, we couldn't get over the line and although Brought may not be fully fit, our other play makers, Miller, Hampshire, Wood and Randell were all playing
.Defensively we were good, with the interception the only time that our line was breeched but with ball in hand, we were so far from good enough, I can hardly speak.
With the quality of passing skills on show, the whole squad need to go to an under 8's training session and learn how to catch and pass a ball.

Despite thinking that we were play off contenders, we could yet find ourselves battling it out at the wrong end of the table

Because 'some' fans have delusions of grandeur and can't take losses well. Everyone is frustrated and disappointed about last night. We struggled with basic passing and creation. Our defence was only breached once via an intercept. We can give in or muck in to change our fortunes.

It's worth noting about patience. Leeds fans complained many years ago for 2/3 seasons about their youth. They persisted and had a golden generation of success. We've blooded some youngsters which will bear fruit! Really pleased with Kersh and Croft. An example of patience, Tom J had loads of areas to work on, he made mistakes, he was thrown in, dropped, came back in and now is arguably in the top 5 best finishers in the world.

I bang on about patience in youth. It's also worth noting our coaching team are young and developing. They'll make good and bad decisions but getting rid of folk at the drop of a hat is rubbish. MC isn't going to do that, so we need to get behind them. If you say to a coach before the season you'll have half your salary cap out, go and manage it, I think most would find it tough. I'm still disappointed but have emapthy with their predicament.

Let's regroup and go again.

Even when we had a poor team and Leeds were unstoppable, we were capable of scoring a few points. Last night was just dire.

We forced what, three, four, dropouts in the first 10 mins and didn’t score from any of them with our first choice 1,6,7,9. We still had Reece Lyne and BJB with Sau another first team outside back. And you can’t understand the criticism?

To sum it up we are the first team to be nilled by Leeds this season. Just take that in.

Some utter nonsense being spoken over last night. It was hugely frustrating to watch and playing the walking wounded has put the season’s hopes on the skids. Not sure what choice there is otherwise and I’d have taken the gamble against what is a poor Leeds side this year.

The one criticism I will make is not playing the conditions. Leeds did that, took the points on offer from kicks and their big chance with the ball in hand. Excellent defence from them towards the end of the game as well. Fair result in the end.

It’s probably more born from frustration than anything.

Losing twice to London and that last night even with the numbers depleted meant we could have been sat on 22 points, in a strong position, with all aforementioned players to return at the business end.

Now we look like missing out on the opportunity (again) and that’s the frustration.

It's worth saying we weren't playing the Leeds team that has lost so many.
They had fit players in where we had busted players.
I knew it would be harder than people thought when I saw the team and the big point for me from OP is they players who are playing injured.

We didn't score because of poor execution but we did create.
It needs to be fixed but it doesn't warrant the noncence some are posting.
