When I saw the starting 17 I thought we may not have enough grunt in the forwards especially against this top heavy Whitehaven unit.
No disrespect to the lads who started but that back three looked light. Can't do that next week either IMO because they will target that area.

Jordie will run his blood to water. Really need Mariano, Foster and England back for the run in. Douglas wouldn't go amiss either.

No answer to Haven’s well-organised defence.

Thought the forwards lacked a bit of spark today, consequently not much of a platform for the backs.

Ref didn’t help much around the ruck area, hence the flare up at the end.

A case of ‘what might have been’ had either of our two disallowed ‘tries’ stood. Two of their tries came from two dubious scrums awarded against us.

Kick offs were a worry - gave away possession and territory cheaply.

With games running out quickly, we can’t afford many/any more defeats if we’re going to get out of this division.

Whitehaven had a plan today and stuck to it. Finishing top is now virtually out of reach as Whitehaven are seven points ahead with five games to play. Whitehaven only need two more wins to guarantee finishing ahead of us. They've got games against Coventry and W Wales still to come.

The big Whitehaven forwards wore us down. We couldn't cope with their 'beef' upfront.

I'm certainly not a coach,not even a mini cab,but when you're playing the big lads from up north it's suicide to have an unused sub on the bench .did Foster pull up lame just before the game ??

From the brief highlights of the game, two of Whitehavens tries, the one's near the sticks were out of the Haxey Hood playbook, we didn't have the weight to stop them. League 1 stuff at its best :wink: Expect more of the same next Sunday on that narrow pitch at Queensway.
