Just in case anyone else didn’t know, if you weren’t able to go to Rochdale but want to follow the game look at the clubs twitter feed. You don’t have to join Twitter to read the messages, and my thanks go to whoever it is who is responsible for this service.
Thought it was a decent game for a friendly for the first 60mins. All the trialists did well and Dugdale led the team round very well, thought Edge alao showed some really good touches too. Couple of sloppy trys let in on the line. Last 20mins the terrible conitions and amount of subs meant it got a bit scrappy.
One strange thing I witnessed was 2 ladies from Widnes who I know regularly watch Widnes away from home so are big fans, loudly clapping and supporting Rochdale whilst not even acknowledging Widnes scores. Apparently it was because Freeman was playing for them. It was really bizarre.
