Mate, we won the CC and finished 5th last season.
This season we're out of the CC and 4th from bottom.
How exactly is that a good direction?

Mate we're busted worse than we've engr been, worse than I can remember any SL team being. But some young talent is being blooded and that is massive for next 2-3 yrs....

Other than the HKR game did anyone really give us a chance of winning those games with our injury list.The plus of having the injuries has showed we have a crop of very good younger players.Lets see how we fare when we can select our best halves and centres and forward pack.

Can i ask did you expect us to beat Cas, Saints and Wigan with the teams we had out on those days? And even Hudds away which is always tricky at the best of times for us.

No.
But based on those performances I expected us to compete with HKR and Hudds - but we didn't.
Yes, there are mitigating circumstances as to why we are where we are.
But there are also mitigating circumstances as to why we won the CC last year - let's not pretend that we won it because we're a top team and all is rosy.
I agree that the future looks good with the crop of youngsters we have.
But the present looks awful.
Massive game against Wakey - lose and we could be in a relegation battle.
Win and we could gain some confidence and start to open up a gap.

We didn't compete with Huddersfield?

we lost by a point on the hooter.

I would suggest we didn't compete against Hul KR precisely because the efforts in the previous weeks to compete with the likes of Cas, Wigan and Saints took it's toll.

We won the CC last year because we won the games we had to win, if it was such an easy achievement why did none of Saints, Hull, Wigan, Cas Warrington win it?

Te present looks awful because of the injury list, it might look a whole load different on a month or twos time.

Yeh we all hope so.
Just so frustrating that we have a real go with a young side against Saints and Wigan and we’re all quite optimistic.
Then we get a few bodies back but are really poor against HKR and Hudds.
Yes, Hudds was a close game, but we were still poor.
We take one step forwards and two steps back.

2 weeks to get a couple more back and have a real go against Wakey, hopefully can kick start us.
Is Gale back for Wakey?
That should make a big difference.
