Fantastic result!

Could easily have gone either way but the Dons stuck to it and ground out a win.

These are the sort of victories which just might see us vying for promotion.


And you can keep the shirt

just shows where we could have been if we hadn't slipped up against London & NW Crusaders.
2nd 1pt from top spot.
thats why those games are so important but everyone say we're just winging and moaning.

We slipped up against Hunslet, NWC and Keighley ... London walloped us.

We have had 3 decent lads from Hull in the last two matches and that is the main difference for me.
Getting Boas and shifting Howden to FB is also working well.
RH has not got decent Hull lads at other times and we were not good enough in their absence.
So although two great results ... we ain't ripping up this league and let's hope RH has learned the lesson.
War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

Thank God I'm an atheist.

Next Saturday is a huge game. Bigger than the one up there. No more than a couple of changes to 19, same DR and maybe Brandon Douglas available and we're ready for it

Couldn't agree more....

When DR is providing the extra quality, we're able to match or better the top sides in the league. When we don't get the Hull input, we're vulnerable.

In Richard Horne's most recent video on the Dons website, he said the club needed to look at why we seem to start slowly. The answer in my view is quite simple: Watson Boas coupled with a DR system that is working better.

Boas is box office. Should never played FB. I'm starting to question my Stance of playing Rangi there. This will take some real man management

Jordan Howden playing well at full back , safe under the high ball & scoring tries .

My concern is 2nd row , Brad Foster is doing well . We have been hit hard by injuries in that position . Would rather see Bower in the centres.
