Thanks for seeing the fans last night

Post by Ian Cant » Sat Apr 13, 2019 3:07 pm

After a long journey to Newcastle I felt like we’d won a cup final at the end.
The whole team really performed well apart from two really stupid penalties costing 3 points and a try for May.
Afterwards it was great to see our much maligned Aussie boys ( who both played exceptionally well, class never deserts top players) come over to the fans along with the excellent Thompson and Ford.
Kitchener again, despite what some say, put in a great shift and his beaming smile for us away fans said it all. Kerr, Genge and Whitey also made the effort, on a freezingly cold night, to come over to show how proud they were to get the result.
I was at the South Stand end so couldn’t tell how we defended so well at the end but, “ What a fantastic effort.”
I hope, if we now avoid relegation, Peter Tom and the Board will did into their pockets and treat the whole squad and the coaches to a great night out or even week end away. :smt038 :smt038 :smt041

It was indeed. We could only get "seats" in the standing area behind the posts......but we were behind the posts when Tigers were so stoutly defending at the end and there was no better place to be. As we walked away I was, at 59 years of age, like a great big kid as I tried to call congratulations to the players....but nobody heard me. However, at 59 I have seen enough to not be too crestfallen....how could I be with a finish like that!!
