That was a woeful performance. Possibly the worst team i've seen at the Broncos for 20 plus years. They just weren't in it other than the first 10 mins.

The lack of strength in the squad was borne out by the bench. Made no impact whatsoever. Brough opened up our compressed defence time and time again. Even when he went off they exposed us.

I can only assume that the plan is to bring players in as the season progresses so that we are at our strongest come play off time.

One area of concern; at the end of the game why don't the players go into the changing rooms for a b0llocking of the coach. Meadows who is an awful contributor was out on the edge of the pitch with his mates, as were others. I found that bewildering. The Capt should have insisted on the players getting together. McDermott, Craig Gower wouldn't have allowed it thats for sure.
Mac out!

If JS is out for 12 weeks then we've got to bring someone in on loan in the halves. We're going to get hammered regularly otherwise if yesterday is anything to go by.

Exactly why I said what I said. From the day we professionalised, moved with SL etc when the game changed I would argue on the field this is our low point.

Makes me wonder why we are moving to The Dons when the team is so poor. Ealing suits our current performance level.

You ask a good question WQ, don't expect a good answer, well at least one that makes sense.

Be interesting to know the details of the RFL deal with Bulls to return to the dump. Be surprised if it's a commercial rate.

Ealing, pitch service is simply not up to standard, the sooner we are away the better!

See Bradford Bulls visit to Toulouse on 18th June has been cancelled, with COVID, with no date possible for it to be fitted in??

As I saw it described, there's no free weekend left for Toulouse, nor can they play midweek as they have to self isolate for 7 days after playing. It's a mess.
