Gelling was by far our best centre today & the long standing problem of not being able to score from close to the line must be due for a gold watch by now. Our props worked hard today & Ratchford was just Ratchford. Ashton & Walker added a different attacking aspect i thought but the defence seemed to lose its structure some what when the changes were made although the game was won by then.
I certainly didn't miss the scrums & have to say again that we don't need them but i think the extra intensity of games warrants more substitutions to be available.

Picking up on the Danny Walker comment - I know he's young and not the biggest, but it still seems to me that he gets pushed off tackles too easily.
Not that I could do better !!

I've never agreed with people saying get rid of the scrum, as i've always felt it's part of our game.....But after this weekend i have to completely agree that i didn't miss them what so ever. I love the no scrum and 6 again rule,i think the games have been much faster and enjoyable and would like these rules to stay in effect.
As for gelling....if he calms down and defensively smartens up and knocks down on the brain farts he would immense. But he's been in the game a long time and still makes the same mistakes, so i'm not sure he will. But he's big, fast and aggressive and i thinks he's a good strike player for us and i wouldn't leave him out the squad.

I think Gelling is a plus. Creative and a handful. We need one or two more like him. Makes mistakes but I think he's worth his place.

TS clearly been reading up on chaos theory, and for a while it worked. Once the team trusted their system normalise service was resumed. Next week will be interesting. No problem with the removal of the scrum which had virtually become the equivalent of the line of scrimmage in NFL.
The Catalans and Saints games showed how easily blow out scores can happen though.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

I must say ,the problem i have with modern scrummaging is that it is such a let down in terms of what the game is supposed to be about. At least ,in days of yore ,we had pushing & shoving & grunting in scrums but now they are just an oasis of inaction in a dynamic game.

TS played a shrewd move. He knew KR wouldn’t beat wire so took a decision to blood a couple and take one for the good of 2021.
once a wire always a wire

Really??... I think KR simply showed that the competition doesn't have the strength in depth, player-wise, to sustain a 12 (or even 11) team league.

Despite Smith trying to talk it up (as he rightly should) and Sky wetting their pants over a couple of short kick offs, the reality was that their's was one of the worst SL displays of recent times with regards to actually being able to do simple basics properly.

A side of the quality we should be expecting, in a supposedly elite league (we were nowhere near), would have put double what we put on them.
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

Bit harsh. We were clearly rusty as some of the woeful passes to the wing showed, next week will be a sterner test and give a more realistic view as to where we are.
On scrums did anyone see the Conulla Eels match. Played in a swimming pool and included a win against the feed!

37 handling errors in 80mins is embarrassing, it really was bad however you dress it up, HKR played touch rugby and we played 5 drives and a kick.
Price needs to adapt his and our style of play, quickly.
On a side note, Saints are playing like a team that trained together whilst on Furlough......
