Yes, DP's report is an accurate reflection of the match; it;s hard to visualise I know, due to the massive points differential but that's pretty much as it happened.

In summary this game came down to % of possession converted into Converted Tries.

We looked really good with the ball but not so good without it. Saying that, this is a really good Penrith Squad - I've watched them a few times now; great No 9 running the game and they really work hard to get players into supporting positions so their moves seldom break down.

Equally, in defence they really work for each other and the majority of the time are making 2 on 1 tackles meaning they get a lot of turnovers and scrum put ins.

Aerobic fitness is also a factor - if you cant keep running you cant hurt anyone.

Best Team in the league in my view - by a Cumbrian Country Mile - they tend to be the equivalent as about 3 of ours 'cos of the Ups & Downs :-)

We can learn from this though, as always - onward and upward lads.

Stand fast boys - No Surrender - Clecky next.
