Try scorer

September 7 2017

The second round of the championship season starts at Lady Bay tomorrow evening when Yorkshire Carnegie plays Nottingham. The two clubs enjoyed differing results on the opening weekend when both sides were on the road.

Carnegie's lack of fit players and absence of  pre-season matches took its toll at the Richmond Athletic Ground and the result was a comprehensive win for the Exiles. By way of  contrast Nottingham travelled north to Clifton Lane and trounced Rotherhan convincingly.

Whilst it is far too early to extrapolate anything about how the season will pan out the fact remains that Nottingham has 5 points in the bag and we have none. I suggest that the Greens will be full of confidence when tomorrow's game kicks off. It is also possible that our first result will help their belief that they can win the match. Certainly fans around the championship have picked up on the facts that we are short of money and players.

J=Lo has made 2 enforced changes from last week. McColl and Sanderson are both injured. Louie Brown debuts on the wing from Leeds Beckett Uni and Jack Whetton comes into the engine room. Lee Imiolek makes a welcome return to the bench. Since the team was announced Staples has gotten injured and Wilson replaces him on the bench.

So after one game the injury count is 4, not including those who started the season injured.

Standard!

We have always had long term injury issues (or at least as long as I can remember). Some clubs do not suffer to the same extent. Perhaps we are lacking something?

Notts are always pretty tough at home. Should be a good game.

It was Irvine try, they got it wrong on the shirt numbers. He took a high pass above his head from homer a real hospital pass ! But on coming down he swayed past one defender and the side stepped two others, amazing try from Irvine that gave the team belief.

Perhaps Callum is worth a starting place against Donny?

Great result - Notts are a tough nut. Looks like last week's pre-season match did the business!

Well done lads. Perhaps now we can look to being positive. Sounds like a bit more than 25 minutes of effort happened. So, again, well done and I hope the improvement continues.

As for Callum Irvine, dare I say this? But, I told you he was good!

Alex Davies excellent place kicking kept us in it first half. Huge defensive effort early in the 2nd half when Notts were camped on our line for what felt like forever but was probably 10 minutes (we were down to 14 for all of it) but kept them out. That felt game changing and so it proved.

That gave us confidence and the introduction of Homer and Irvine provided the spark. Great effort from the whole squad though.

Saw Jonah Holmes, Lee Blackett and Jon Pendlebury to name 3 ex Carnegie peeps. An enjoyable evening all round.
