Cullens CommentCoach Paul Cullen gives his view on last weeks "Best win of the season" at Huddersfield and looks towards this weekends clash with The Centurions."THE BEST WIN OF THE SEASON" WAS HOW YOU DESCRIBED THE WIN AT HUDDERSFIELD, WHAT MADE IT A SPECIAL WIN?The simple fact that we had so many injuries during the game itself. We had bodies all over the floor, all from accidental collisions that could have knocked us out of our stride. Lee Briers, Paul Noone, Chris Bridge and Graham Appo, all took heavy bangs to the head whilst Martin Gleeson received a blow to the knee that forced a limp throughout the entire second half. We had enough excuses to not win that game and took none of them. YOU HAVE NOW ACCUMALATED 20 POINTS IN SUPERLEAGUE, THE SAME YOU GAINED IN 2004, and THE PROGRESS MUST BE VERY PLEASING?The progress has been planned for but it can not be guaranteed. One bad result in March does not ruin a season and 3rd position on June does not finish one! JON CLARKE FILLED MANY ROLES DURING SUNDAYS GAME; IS THAT KIND OF FLEXIBILITY A NECESSITY OF THE GAME NOW?The 20/20 has created a modern day coaching dilemma that versatile players can solve. John actually played 4 positions in one game, Hooker, Loose Forward, Scrum Half and Left Second Row. The injuries that we suffered forced us too constantly re think our substitutions and also saw Logan Swann at Right Centre, Toa Kohe Love at Left Wing and Paul Noone at Left Centre. HOW ARE THE GUYS SHAPING UP AFTER MANY WERE "BUSTED" AT HUDDERSFIELD?They are progressing well during the week but Martin Gleeson and Paul Noone are rated as doubtful for the trip to Leigh. A BIG LOCAL DERBY SUNDAY, AGAINST A STRUGGLING LEIGH SIDE, SURELY A GUARANTEED TWO POINTS?Ask the London Broncos, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats or Hull FC about guarantees in Super League!HOW HAS MIKE FORSHAW SETTLED IN TO HIS NEW ROLE?Very well, his energy and knowledge are great assets that we are keen to harness. The timing of our arrival in the top 3 at the same time as Mike's 1st full week on board is a clear indication that we are not satisfied with our current position. THE AWAY SUPPORT AT HUDDERSFIELD WAS HUGE; DOES THAT KIND OF SUPPORT KEEP THE GUYS GOING WHEN SO MANY WERE "BUSTED"?Absolutely, we felt as if we were playing at home. The drums appeared to beat the rhythm of our effort; the players heard it and responded!
Wolves "Wear Red" Shocker!Warrington Wolves did the unthinkable today, when they swapped their trademark blue and yellow for red! But it was all for a good cause, the team donned the Šoffending articlesĂ to show their support for the British Heart FoundationĂs (BHFĂs) Help a Heart Week which focuses on women and heart disease and takes place 4-12 June 2005.Help a Heart Week is the BHFĂs biggest annual fundraising campaign and this year it will remind us all that heart disease does not discriminate between men and women. The reality is this:
- Heart and circulatory disease will kill over 2400 women during Help a Heart Week
- One in three women are killed by heart and circulatory disease
- Nearly 1.2 million women in the UK are living with the daily burden of heart disease
