That’s exactly what I meant we have no nouse and it not just the half backs.

Also Poching is not up to the job. Please explain why anyone in there right mind would tinker with the back line! Why break up a partnership that has done so well this year, sorry but it’s idiotic imho.

As for Lino, one of the worst HB I’ve ever seen at the club, what people see in him is beyond me. He’s not in the same class as Finn or Smith or even Brad Walker. When will we see past the accent!


Agree 100% the game plan today was shocking and never adapted to the situation. Some shocking mistakes and a poor ref what an absolute shambles today has been

That was a dumb run by Hall into touch so lets not blame anyone else. I look forward to see a replay of that last move of the game too, to confirm that going for glory was Hall's best option rather than giving Kershaw the ball.

Barely noticed Fifita at all today.

Have to agree regarding halves. The three, Miller,Lino, Fifita all rumoured to be going, good, they're stealing a wage.


Its thank you and goodbye if true. However my fear is two fold. Firstly still highly likely we will go down and then its more than those that we lose, it will be the whole team.

Secondly the smart money appears to be on Luke Gale comming . 33 years old, injury prone and no longer doing it at Hull. Could be even worse.

Yeah, not sure, granted we were looking from the Northstand but Catalans looked to have plenty of cover out there ready to bundle Kershaw into touch. Was anyone in that corner who could confirm or deny this ??

Gale would be a vast improvement on Lino. Even if he missed half a season at least we wouldn’t have to watch the headless chicken. Then maybe Walker would get a go and in all honesty Walker is not great.

Gale’s already 34. We should be looking elsewhere, he’s done.

I know Lino isnt liked by many, but to me Miller is an even bigger problem. The bloke is thick, should never be the captain and cant read a game. I was bored watching his high kicks to Tom Davies it was obvious a failed tactic but he did not adapt

Kershaw would probably have had too far to run to get past cover defenders. What was needed was a little kick on the inside where we had players in support who would probably have dotted down - seemed to attempt this but made his mind up a little too late. Ref was as inconsistent as I've seen and seemed to ref both sides differently regarding ruck and set restarts etc. Overall, effort plenty effort but poor execution and game smarts like most games. That Catalan side were not any good really. I reckon they'd have been beat by most teams.

Don't like to single players out but Kershaw just stood and watched instead of helping Hall :roll:


Probably because the poor bloke was knackered, he did more work than all the front row combined.

I just can’t get over how inept and totally under prepared we were to day. We were slack from minute one to eighty.

The effort was never lacking but you need more than that to stay in SL. I honestly think this is the worst team in terms of actually playing RL I’ve ever seen at the club. Not a single leader amongst them.

I love effort and I can’t knock them for that. But I can go to Eastmoor for that for free. I pay my £25 to see a bit more than dumb rugby regardless of how hard they tried.

There was one out there today, that was linked with us a couple of years back and rang rings round ours. Sadly he wasn't rated at the time
