Final score was 0 - 35 . Worst performance of the year , but credit to the team over the season to finish where we did when most of the season playing without a full bench

Watched the match and our lads didn't really turn out. Featherstone looked fitter, had bigger pack and had 14th man with the ref. Ref was absolutely shocking! Disallowed a try which seemed a dubious decision. Lads have done well this season but I have to say the team moral has seemed low towards end of season. Not the same as last season??

spoke to a match goer and life long supporter yesterday on returning and he said our coach was a def miss on saturday as well as the match officials being very poor our stand in coach was partly to blame,  to blame in his opinion due to the rather bad use of interchanges or lack of interchanges used, all in all poor performance by the team poor performance by the officials  and poor performance most of all by the stand in coach whoever that was on saturday against a good well drilled featherstone side who wanted to win more on the day.

No, but that's sad news if it's true. Chris is a class coach and has a lot of respect from the lads  :(

Some of the senior players last weekend were talking about a bit of un rest between the clubs coaches and the board? Dave Smith has stood down from the u18s Chris wright was missing from last weekends game ? this is all very unsettling for the players with such a big game to be played shortly.

Cumbria Boys comments are so way off the mark , I don't know whether to laugh or cry !!!!

Chris Wrights absence last week end was due  to a long standing commitment ,training course he had to attend , due to him starting his own business .

As for Dave Smith he told me his decision to stand down as Under 18s coach was due to the lack of response he was getting from the players in that team , which incidentally was a stand alone club that made its own appointments , support from Haven yes , but no real control over the running of West Cumbria Under 18s  .

Unrest between the players and the BOD well I think more concrete evidence needs to be put on the table before making  any such comments.
