'Ornits 22-53 Lions at Spotland this aft, and the (200 ish) fans who'd made the short journey along the motorway came home very happy!

We've reserved our two best performances this term for 'Ornits, and long before the end, we were taunting our ex-chairman with "Mazey, Mazey, what's the score?" Mazey, Mazey, give us wave!" and "You can stick your Manchester up your arse!" 

We expected them to be fired up coz of the Mazey scenario, but they overdid it more than once, as their three yellows and a red, would seem to prove!

I spoke to my mate Jim, after the hooter, said he said "Our discipline has been crunchie all season!"

Near the end, one of their guys who'd gone down very easily, resulting is us giving him grief, and pointing to the scoreboard, appeared to kick the penalty directly at the fans, missing me by not very much! I don't think it could ever be proved, as he could argue that "It slipped off my foot!" but it appeared to be a very naughty, and childish action!

The Cougars come a-calling next week, and they'll be fresh after their bye this weekend, so we'll have to be at our very best, if we're to spoil their 100% record.

Matt Calland now the ex coach at 'Ornits.

He departed today by "mutual consent" according to the report, but is that just a  polite way of saying he was sacked?

I'll leave that up to you!

It looks like the old adage of "Don't get there too early, coz you might get a game!" will apply at Heywood Road tomorrow!

Our declared squad of (the usual) 21, totals a mere 18, due to the injuries we have!

COME ON YOU LIONS!!!!!!!

Lions 22-26 Cougars this aft, and we came up just short of spoiling their 100% record.

We were leading 20-2 as the half-time hooter approached, but they scored just before, and just after the interval, converting 'em both, and that was the game-breaker.

Down to the bare bones selection wise coz of injuries, every Lion gave his all, but we couldn't quite come up with the killer blow, the visitors went home with their record still intact, but knowing they'd been pushed big style.

To ease the pain slightly, the Pinks came home from Headingley on the wrong end of a stuffing.

Next up for us, is the long trip to Llanelli, and it's a Saturday game against the Raiders.
