TODAYS GAME

Post by classysupercas3 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 8:26 pm

Didn't do anything wrong today. A much needed good performance.still think we need a recognised fullback and nobody will convince me otherwise. Really tough games coming up so I think we will find out where we are then. Desperately need Eden back. And I think we need to bed lo in soon.overall I'm happy with the scoreline and did extremely well to nill them. Atmosphere gradually returning to wheldon road and everybody went away feeling alot more positive

Clare did really well today, don't think eden would have made that catch and pass for Oggys second try

Macca was outstanding again

Millo is just a machine

Been critical of Meeks this season but he had a good performance off the bench

Its always difficult to get a good atmosphere against catalans theres never away fans in ground
7,000 home fans was a fair turnout i thought

Clare was solid. Trueman dropped one? Tbf he was struggling with it from the off. That suggests to me me it was a horrid propostion for a FB. It happens.

Good win but a bit of a concern that we needed to rely so heavily on kicks to score our tries.

does it matter? Leeds scored tries from kicks to win the grand final. sure that wasn't a concern.

We changed our game as we weren't braking them down the usual way we do first time I can remember us doing that.

I’m sure Powell said in the interview after the game that they’d changed things around this season.
I don’t care how we score a long as we win the game, kicking is now a big part of the game.

Some excellent performances all across the park.
The defensive effort the nil says it all.
As for relying on the kicking game, it worked showed we can vary our game making us harder to defend against, also the pitch does not lend itself to running it down the wing, the puddles may have gone but the ground is anything but firm.
Catalan must have read this forum the way they tried to exploit Bennies alleged frailty under the high ball, he reminded the detractors of his class ,Claire showed you why we resigned him.
McShane best swop ever.
Our best performance of the season so far.

Try still worth 4 whether from kick or pass. All teams score from kicks, comes from having a 6 tackle rule.

Jesus a FB is allowed to drop the odd ball. Remember the kid is 18 or whatever and normally a 6. He's been 110% better then Roberts was at FB.

If rumours are to be believed and we are after Mead for next year. We can move Jake back to 6 and will take over from Roberts the year after full time as im sure at 34 that will be it for Roberts
