Didn't expect to win but was really disappointed with that. We looked like a bunch of individuals doing their own thing rather than playing to any sort of game plan. We went away from everything's that's brought us all the wins recently. The respect for the ball was none existent and we were out own worst enemy.

If we don't manage to bring in a new HB, we have to go with Jowitt or Race to support Lilley as playing Pickersgill there's isn't working and also takes away his attacking threat from FB.

Its not as simple as Brough wasn't playing so we were crap. Wouldn't have mattered if he was there when DFJ and Walker both dropped the ball on the first tackle pretty much handing Fev the victory.

Tough one to take, but we recovered after the Sheffield game. Thankfully another week off to prepare for Widnes.

I think we still would have lost even with Brough in the side. Clear to see that we aren’t good enough to challenge the top 2 sides at the moment. 2 games against Fev and we’ve been well off the pace in both games. Hopefully getting this new halfback in will help our attacking creativity as it was nonexistent today.

He also seem to be picking up some injuries. How far off is Levy, Fleming and Murphy?

Well that was a sobering experience. 2nd best in all departments which with a few missing and Evans going off early laid us bare. The pack were mullered and I understand why in the heat he left the Walker and Scurr on the bench so long but going up the hill so light was a hopeless task.

On a plus side I thought Hamlett has some hands and had a good dig. The 2 chalked off tries didn't look any more forward than about half of Jones' passes. A good time for a week off.

Well off the pace and a very disappointing performance. I wasn't expecting a victory, especially with all the disruption from loan recalls, injury and covid but I thought we might give them a game.

Thought we had moved on from the Sheffield debacle but it kind of felt like we slipped back into that mindset. We can't play the next 3 months with a different half back partner for Lilley every fortnight and Pickersgill isn't a stand off. So if we cannot get a loan in who we can be confident of staying longer term surely we need to back a youngster for a run of games?

Sadly I fully expect we have 3 months of swapping and changing and playing people out of position to look forward to.

And we desperately need some quality on the wings, DFJ might cover a shirt against the lower sides but he is well out of his depth against the better sides.

I'll have to watch it back but we would have won if the ref had given that 45 point try near the end. So just one 50/50 call between us and a good win.

Hopefully it will lull Fev into a false sense of superiority when we meet them in the play-offs

I haven’t seen the game so I may be well off the mark here but a lot of you are banging on about attacking options such as:

Brough not playing.
Pickersgill loses his attack at 6.
Wings offer nothing.
Centres don’t offer anything.

My apologies but we’ve shipped 44 points? Surely it’s the defence that needs looking at? I understand we need to look after the ball but shipping 44 is alarming considering we’ve actually not had a bad defence since the Sheff game. Was it poor defence? Was it quality Fev attack? Was it an attitude problem?

The problem for me wasn’t the right edges attack it was absolutely woeful defence DFJ had his pants down on 3 or 4 occasions even hallas Bombed a few tackles a few players came through with credit; Burton, Hamlett, Crossley, Scurr maybe Brad England? Walker was back to being a nothing for me
