I haven’t blogged for a while as I have been really busy but I had to get back into it after what I witnessed last night at Headingley Carnegie. I had no negative feelings before the game, I felt quite confident that we were going to win, I have no idea why, I just did. I know we had a few injuries again, but there was something about it. Maybe the atmosphere which at the start was brilliant, the South Stand was packed, an awesome place to be when everything is hopeful.
The team was then announced and I started to feel worried…a loose forward at stand off, a stand off at scrum half, a scrum half on the bench? Initially I thought, well this is either gonna be an amazing move, or one that could seal our fate.
Then the game started and we just seemed to have no control over the ball, not completing sets, we just looked out of sorts. When we were defending the tackling & discipline was atrocious. At the time the referee seemed extremely biased towards Warrington (a feeling that I know know to be ‘in the heat of the moment’) but we were just playing right into his hands, laying on, being offside, back chatting. We’ve seen James Child before, we know what he’s like.
