Pauli might not have been great yesterday. Unfortunately, I was ill so couldn't make it. However, he has been great for the last 7 or 8 games so I can forgive that. I find it odd that the entire team plays pretty badly and then back comes up the Pauli criticism. There are players that haven't pulled their weight for the last 8 games/season... no hints needed.


Sorry but Pauli hasn’t been “great” in any match yet . He’s been ok now and then .

Going to have to agree to disagree on that front then. Hull FC, Saints away, Widnes at home just 3 right off the bat.

Afraid Pauli should be ripping up trees the size of him but doesn’t play his weight ,although still a handful due to his size.
On one occasion last night it took him 3 play the balls to get him back onside and he’d only just come onto the pitch ,simply not good enough at this level.
Not just picking on Pauli though as we were all pedestrian taking the ball in all night ,how the hell you can get on top in a game when all the opposing players ran faster and stronger is beyond me .
I don’t know anything about the inns and outs of coaching but never mind the fancy moves/ structures we are struggling with the very basics of the game ,which is a sorry state to be in at this stage of the season .
I still believe we are more than capable of winning our remaining fixtures if the correct squad is fielded ,but boy do they need a reality check if the team and staff think that performance is good enough to turn any team over .

Nail on the head there !!! up to the start of the game they were saying results went well for us because Hull lost to Shudds. Like hell they did, we are hanging on for survival and yet they are still looking at finishing high up the league. I hope yesterday was a massive reality check because on current form I can't see us winning another game so that's a 9th place finish at best. In fact HKR are going great, their only tough match is Hull away, and if they win that they will also be above us. That's the real reality not all this top four crap.

Our pack was by a distance second best yesterday. So any scrum half would have struggled with no go forward.


Horro could do to play like that every game.

You're right there PB about Hull KR.

They will finish in middle 8s certain of that, but they aren't too far off, and are steadily improving.

Currently 52-16 up against Salford.

Talking of ageing half backs, Danny McGuire has scored a hat trick today!

Finn, for all his experience and knowledge, doesnt bring as much to the side as Hampshire in the HB role and Hampshire isn't as good as Jowitt at FB.
We should have stuck with the Miller/ Hampshire HB pairing and kepd an improving and confident Jowitt in the FB position.
However, if our pack doesn't compete, we wont beat anyone, regardless of who is playing 1,6 & 7.

Yesterday was an excellent chance to cement our top 8 position and kick on but, now we have to take on Leeds at Headingley and try and get something from the game, which wont be easy at all.

Trinity are still in the box seat but, it's all getting very, very tight.

They also play Warrington, I'd say that would be pretty tough.
