We played well tonight, better than against Newcastle. It looked as though we'd got it in the bag when we were 16 points in front.

Sheffield stuck at it (coming up the slope) and collared us with a try on the hooter.

The players gave everything and I really felt for them. This was a tougher one to take than last Saturday. If we can play to this level in the remaining games, we've got good reasons to be hopeful.

Washbrook, Litten, and Nzoungou had very solid games.

Lee Radford was at the match.

I forgot to mention that Jordan Howden went off with injured ribs halfway through the first half and didn't return.

Jez Litten came on and played at full-back.

Happy with the performance, we were exhausted at the end, so frustratibly we might have won that if we'd not had that rearranged game on Saturday

Howden has broken ribs I believe.

Thought Evan Hodgson looked handy

Change of fullback cost us that.
War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

Thank God I'm an atheist.

They did, Levi had easilly his best game for us I have seen, and Litten (who I think had an absolute mare against Newcastle) was exceptional

Danny Washbrook made a break down the right and passed to Keiron who looked for a moment as though he might score in the corner but he got caught. It was a huge shame as it'd have been a great boost for him had he been able to get over the line.

He showed some tendencies to want to come off his wing to help the centre out when defending when he may have been better off making sure the opposition winger wasn't left unmarked. It's only through experience that'll he get better at these things. And it's always much easier for us in the stands than it is for the guys on the pitch!

He did himself proud and didn't let anyone down. I'm looking forward to seeing him develop over the next few years.
