    Granted Swinton were poor, but that’s a big improvement from us.

    Look a lot more balanced with Lyons and Smith.

    Robson, O’Neil and Lawton went well.

    Something to build on…

    Good performance that. Obviously we have much tougher games ahead but that was a major improvement in many aspects. We certainly didn’t look like relegation contenders today.

    Much better from us today, Lawton showed his potential, still has too many brain farts but if a decent coach could get into him and get his head straight he would be a monster at this level.

     

    Most impressive aspect was defensively in the first 15 minutes, thats where the mental battle was won. Once we scored first then the game was effectively won. Rugby league is a tough game to play when it feels like your running against a brick wall.

    Much improved today, small steps but will be a confidence builder.

    Miles better than what we’ve seen in the last few weeks. Let’s not get giddy and carried away, that’s as bad a side as I’ve seen for years at Widnes, that said you can only beat what is in front of you.

    Good to get a convincing win.

    Swinton were terrible but we played with a lot more control and the half back pairing looked better suited.

    Grady playing well consistently and Lawton fulfilling a more suitable role as an impact sub IMO.

    All in all nothing to get carried away with but much better and fair play to all concerned.

    Lawton is looking for the offload every time. Great if you are on form but initially just get up the field big fella!

    Lot of improvement needed yet, but we looked much more confident after that defensive ten minutes. Good show from the new youngsters of first run. Hatton looked like he got the nerves out of his system, power there!

    I’d be keeping Hatton and Edge in the side. Both solid today.

    Thought Clough went well today, swinton very poor mind

    our completion rate has improved but lots of work to do on that

    defensive line speed appeared better,  or maybe swinton are slower version!

    Don’t understand why this was Edge’s first game of the season. He was one of our better players last season.

    Hatton is a much better option than Buckley. Makes a lot more meters

    Bang on the mark on both counts mate!

    After about 15 minutes, we struggled to get even the basics right!

    We’re bottom, and we deserve to be!
