I'm wondering now if it is good that the Doncaster game was cancelled, given the 'hammering' that we had at Sale on Saturday!

I wonder sometimes about us armchair warriors comments!

From the point of view of one who did see the 'hammering' it has to be seen in the context of a first run out in some 518 days I think. Big scrummaging pack was restricted to uncontested scrums at the request of Sale and the nimble Sale backs given plenty of early fast clean ball as a result. Like most things these days not just black and white. 

Disappointing yes but glad to see the lads be able to get a pre-season run out. Something to work on but still high hopes for the coming season. Bring on Leeds (hopefully) is what I say!

Just for clarity, I was at the game Smile

I'm not sure how much of a difference it would have made if the scrums were contested, yes we have a strong pack but Sale were no mugs. It's also a stretch to suggest that the score-line may have been impacted by the lack of game time, given that Sale were in the same boat and TBH we do have some players who gained game time at Donny. I don't know whether the Sale squad is quite established, I know we have a lot of new players so time is needed for them to gel.

I have since found out that there were lots of mitigating circumstances relating to the game, so I can now understand why perhaps the team were not as effective as I hoped.

Having said all of the above, I believe we have recruited very well and expect good things from us this coming season.

I too was at the game. Scoreline was probably not reflective of the game itself with Rotherham having a lot of possession. The Sale backs definitely made a massive difference and any mistakes were capitalised on with points. 
However, that's sort of the point of these games. To find out where you're likely to make mistakes etc. Rotherham were no push overs and I suspect that given a few players back in the squad and ironing out the kinks, they'll be formidable opponents.

During the game we had uncontested scrums, but for 20 minutes post game, Neil Briggs did a coaching session with both sets of forwards with live scrums. That for me is the spirit of the sport we all love. Both teams having serious fun and learning.

Putting all that aside

The "shed on tour" are amazing travelling supporters and having them down at Heywood Road is something we will miss this season. The play hard, drink hard and don't make a mess :-) Perfect house guests.

Leeds won't be playing anyone until they get the Leeds Beckett lads back.

Looking forward to watching Otley v Hull Ionians at Cross Green tomorrow.

Rochford 100 12 - 52 Cambridge
Rochford looked pretty decent - and a nice little club.
I am sure will do well in Nat 2.  Cambridge had quite a strong side out.

If you are visiting, leave yourself extra time to get there, traffic was terrible once you are off the main road. Not that they can do anything about that.
