i thought it was a shambles we had no idea what we were doing we lets town walk all over us and there a division lower which makes it worse the man of the match came from steve madden he was class on the wing then when to full back and did a good job but all in all very upset with the score the conditions that the game was played in and we made town look the better team no disrespect but the conditions ruined the game and hopefully will see a better games or games come the nrc but very upset


duffy lost a bit of weight but class

madden even better than last season

jacko very good tackler tonight

no one else wanted to know

i thought duffy was poor i know the conditions wernt the best for him as he is a play maker but every time i looked for him he was out next to the centers

maden was good did well to get back and kick that ball out

thought ricky wright had a good game strong running and tackling

and matty played well looked like our best way of scoring

the conditions ruined the match town looked the better team because we didnt turn up just like a couple or years ago at dp but luckily we won tonight but very disopointed if we play like this in the season we will be humiliated i feel gutted even though we won

Check out the Town site,,,,,,,,Keith and his cronies complaining about the ref and how Mguiness's assault on Baynes was legitamate.
These guys need to get real and realise they were lucky to end up with a full team.

totally agree marra how any one can say that challenge was fair i dont know it was a clear swinging arm to the face hear baines had to have 10 stitches in he's lip dont know if that is true though and yes the ref was poor but he was missing things from both sides town played well and probably deserved to win but we took our chances and defended out line well it was the first game of the year and there is a long way until the season starts

Poor  performance  but  then  what  do  you  expect  in  condition's  like  that.  Best  sides  in  the  world  would  have  struggled.  Better  condition's  would  have  suited  us  but  as  it  was  the  constant  rain  dragged  us  down  to  their  level.  Loads  of  penalties  against  us  not  too  mention  them  trying  to  slow  the  game  down.  2  Town  players  sinbinned  which  just  about  sums  it  up.

Still  a  wins  a  win  and  here's  hoping  for  a  lot  better  to  come ;)

whitehaven rlfc 4eva the played who gave baynes the high shot was alan mcguiness lunt was in the tackle and went low mcguiness went high!
i thought adam shaw looked very good in defence maden and rob jacko both solid tonight as ever
and im sure i saw a red card proudced tonight for the incident when leroy was assualted on the floor with punches to the face by a certain mr lunt !!! so much for him being better than sicey and matty ! sicey looked like his old self tonight looking for gaps

haven marra or Ruby which ever name you prefer, as I also said on the Town site I think the ref had an alright game in the conditions.   You call the tackle on Baines an assault but I and others didn't see it that way.   I think the damage was done by McGuinness's shoulder hitting Baines in the face and I'm sure Dave Rotherham will be looking at the video to check up on that.    None of the officials saw anything wrong with the tackle, so I'll leave it there and await any outcomes that may or may not come about from watching the video.   As I also said on the Town site, there's none so blind as them that don't want to see".

so when a player cocks him arm back and then swings it in a forward motion making the arm connect with the neck/jaw area not exactly a shoulder shot keith
