    I don’t think it’s malicious. He has hands like cows tits. Thats why he drops the ball half of his carries. Its a shame. A complete waste. 4 years ago he was one of the best props in the world.

    I agree, don’t think he does it on purpose, he’s just thick and clumsy

    I wasn't that impressed, I'll be honest. Dropping far too much ball. They were atrocious them, won't be sorry if they go down

    Much better than the last couple of weeks but still seemed a lot of dropped balls in the line and in the tackle. But, definitely going in the right direction. Great defence again.

    another error strewn performance ( completion rate must have been shocking).If they keep playing like this we won't get anywhere near the GF.

    It may seem daft after a fairly resounding win but I wasn't overly impressed . Too many unforced errors, couldn't help but think that if we'd been playing a half decent team we'd have been punished . After Wembley I was hoping for 3 really tough games before the play offs to put us in the right place for when it really matters, you'd have thought the 3 teams we still had to play would have been up for it , Cas gave us a game but Hudds were awful tonight and although I hope I'm wrong I don't expect much from Hull next week they're terrible

    Glad someone has similar concerns. We want to play at 100mph & score off every play.

    The play off games will have a slow ruck & we'll get suffocated playing panic rugby again. It's alright against the likes of that dross we played tonight. A Wigan, a Wire or quite possibly a Salford will kill us on percentages & beat us

    Felt like the forwards where running flat when taking the ball up.

    Sloppy handling

    Hudds tried slowing our game down.


    Hope the fan taken from the West Stand by St Johns Ambulance is ok.

    One positive re the play offs is the defence. I agree we are still a bit careless with the ball at times and we need to sort that out sharpish. The pitches will soften up over the next month so it is highly unlikely we will win the GF by playing dazzling rugby, it rarely works out that way

    One thing in our favour is that we should be the freshest team by far and if we can turn the games into arm wrestles that should suit us

    And that's exactly what worries me

    Thought there was better flow and movement in our game, most of our errors were from messy rucks and PTB's its epidemic in Superleague at the moment. Thompson now looking as though he's got too his best form before he got the ankle injury, great effort from LMS tore the giants defence at times. I think Bentley played himself into a regular first 17 spot at the expense of Paulo, Bentley is a lot more versatile and a tough bugger just like Bateman.

    I guess so. But too many errors and forced plays.

    I don't like it as much as anyone else but for 10 years now, the crunch games have been won by the teams who control the ruck, kick well & utilise their entire pack to wear down the opposition. When we went down the middle tonight, we scored points. Against better opponents, you might not score as many points but you need to play the short kicking game, trap them, bash them & repeat.

    I doubt we will say one high scoring game in the play offs. They will all be low scoring, close games

    I thought Thompson and big Al ran very well, supported by LMS. Taia didn't seem up to speed at all.

    We dropped a ton of ball tonight.
    Pretty much sums up the quality of the opposition when you can be so average with the ball in hand and win by such a huge margin.
    Had we been properly on song tonight could have been 60-70 points on the board.

    I think losing Percival might have influenced how Taia played.

    My main concern come the play offs is the number of other teams that will be building momentum. I really don't think we need the rest as most of the squad are fresh atm & arguably need game time.
