They say RL is a simple game made difficult and I think Sunday showed that.

There were three tries that showed this perfectly and it was the difference between success and failure in my eyes.

First try - BJB off Lyne. Lyne takes the ball, runs it in with good leg speed, spins in the tackle breaks free, draws the defender, simple pass to the winger who goes in easily to score a wonderfully put together try. No bouncing about, no running aimlessly into the middle, no risky kick throughs, just a great wingers try created by his centre partner.

Second try (my fave) - Millier takes the ball on 5th, puts in a well-weighted kick, but crucially he and the rest of his teammates follow it up, fittingly Miller gets there first. How often this season have we not executed a worthwhile end to a set let alone score from it? Most I'd say.

Hampshire - It's two tries actually, one could have been construed on a bad day as a ball strip, it wasn't but it could have been. The second looked for all the world like he knocked on but it wasn't. Both tries came from opportunism from broken play which is good but what I really liked was that Hampshire didn't blink, he just went for it in both cases remaining concentrated on the job in hand, again how often this season have we blown these kinds of chances.

Yeah, it's not just as simple as that I know but it shows that if you do the basics right then you will get your reward. All the tries were typical RL tries, the sort that should be second nature to a pro. There was nothing fancy in any of them, conditioning didn't play a part, they were not especially part of a game plan, they were all standard stuff, no skills beyond the average for any SL player (in the right position) were required. Just good old fashioned RL, its all you really need along with the commitment to carry it out, anything else just overcomplicates and I swear that's been half the problem.

Good stuff, keep it up.

I don't mean to be controversial but I don't really agree with your conclusion.
Everything you say is true but none of it would have happened without a lot of planned work drilled in training and a lot of failed attempts too.

Rugby looks a simple game but to be successful you can't just play off the cuff.

Also what Lyne did probably looked simple but that run spin and pass is something most players can't do. Not simple at all.

You're not disagreeing with me, of course it's being drilled on the training pitch or at least it should be, but it's not what we have been executing on the pitch. I should think all teams train relentlessly to score these kinds of tries but for whatever reason we not been scoring them. Sunday proved we can but even taking off days and injuries into the equation we generally haven't this season, so something been wrong somewhere.

Personally I think it's field position.
Because we are not getting off our line and making metres down field we normally do, we are snatching at chances and bombing them.

This time because of the work the forwards did and especially the new boys, we had Miller and Co stood ready and a lot of chances.

It's not the only thing, but that was a big difference I saw against Rovers.
We'll clearly have less against Wigan but the same amount of patience should be applied to the game.

I look forward to finding out.

It’s when players have nowt between the lug holes when it becomes hard. Like most sports, some make the easiest game look so hard.

seconded.
Lyne is one on one, if he isn't one on one he's unlikely to be spinning out of anything.
I'm looking at what gets him one on one for him to do what he does in the first place.
Danny Brush ain't taking that to the line without off load support = not off the cuff.
