Apparently this was our first home nilling in the superleague era. I think that speaks volumes about the current state of this current set up. We looked clueless from start to finish, but worse than that we didn't look bothered about the tonking being dished out to us. I struggle to remember a worse performance.


I admit we are not in a brilliant place, but the spanking we took at home to Wigan in 2012 is very similar. That team had so many stars and still got embarrassed in their own patch.

This team I think we all admit is in transition. We've had some decent wins so far this season and even sat top for a bit. I'd take that over the last two seasons where we've been sitting bottom at this stage

That’s far too sensible, to some the wins don’t matter, only the losses and you can’t take anything from a good win only from a loss, we could finish in the top 4 this year and people would still bang in about the losses and not look at any positives.

It also seems people cannot look beyond the last game as if that must be the true test of where the team is at - it’s not, as has been pointed out sometimes teams get a good spanking even championship winning ones (see us against cas in 2017)

They are history - what impact do they have on what happened on Sunday?
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

Absolutely nothing and no one said it did, we were both using the past to prove a point about the present.

If anyone had come on here after we nilled Warrington and said we were going to be champions and everything was great all the players were too notch etc etc, it would be rightly said to be daft and an over reaction. That’s no different from everyone over reacting to a bad loss, which this forum always does.

we probably are overacheiving so far. i think we hit our maximum capabilities for this group before lockdown whilst others were off the pace leading to us being around the top. Warrington being one team way off and even Saints were levels off their best. Since the restart we have been way off and we can't afford to be anything too far below our maximum or we will be exposed badly as has happened the last games, i know we beat Hudds but it was poop in the main.
be interesting to see the response this week.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!
