Good job the drum turned up when it did as Swinton fans made more noise all game until then.
Tyrer at fault for both tries but would like to see his opposite centre Hankinson in a fax shirt next year.

said the same myself. looked very good yesterday.

few points to be made:

awful game to watch BUT we got the points and we move on.

once again, Grix made a huge difference in attack when he was in at 13 - needs to be kept there in my opinion. slot barber in at 12 until Tangata is back (saw him at the game and overheard him say hes still a couple of weeks off)

i think some people need to just stop bringing up the DR argument, there was a topic the other day about this forum being dead and i'm not surprised when some people are just starting to sound like broken records.

Is it good for the game, No. does it need scrapping - Yes. but it is what it is, like it or lump it! if we can get a player come in like Green who's been great over the last couple of games then you simply cant turn it down. We had Dan Murray on loan and he was recalled. We have Green on DR and he could be recalled. if they're in a fax shirt then they're a fax player, for a week or for a lifetime. If the effort is there to see, then just keep quiet and appreciate them.

Heard Tangata's comeback has been pencilled in for the bash.

Said the same myself, strong in both attack and defence.

The rest as said was poor and Swinton deserved something out of the game, Fax, well what we could have got wrong we did but at least they stuck at it and got the result.

My last game for a while as I go in for the next round of lets saw a bit more of my legs off on Wednesday.

Playing too much rugby, football and arthritis as taken its toll.

Both total knees done since 2014 and now both ankles to be fused (not at the same time) and they take a while to heal so another couple of years hobbling about.

What's even more frustrating is I can't blame Rhinos Fev Fan for it. :lol:

He ran up the stairs pretty well to across from where I was sat so he must be getting very close now.

Be surprised if Grady doesn't cop a ban-can't kick out like that whatever the provocation.

Talking about DR, I think it's rubbish. Anyone else with thoughts about it? King's Head, shuddersfield. Magic Rock Ringmaster 3.9%. Mmm!

You are the Kings of DRs,don't pretend, I was told Fax were very fortunate yesterday, lucky you have Grady,as Ronnie Barker says the BEST player in this division.There's a job waiting for you Ronnie, at the Tower Circus.

Ian, we were very lucky yesterday, the best team lost. The week previous we hammered London and could have won by a far bigger margin. Make of that what you will. Up The Fax!

A few points from watching the match.
1. The right side is the more potent on attack . Plan and use it . I noticed Brandon Moore who is a very good player went to his left side naturally when the play was on to the right. From there it is very simple draw and pass basic rugby skills
3 will sharp had 2 chances to draw and pass and didn't do either . Certain try's for Butler who you are not going to stop from 5 yds. MCGrath just needs people to set him up with a yard on the outside and he will score.
4. Brandon Moore for full 80 . Ben Kaye option is not giving any benefit that I can see. This is not complicated how to score we have the players it's about having some basic stNdard moves without everyone getting in the way.
