Anyone else been watching the League Two Play-Offs?
Two very different semi-finals.
Tranmere and FGR mostly had the ball on the deck, tried to get the fullbacks forward and were both easy on the eye at times. Kudos to Mellon and Cooper, two sides I’d be happy watching us play next term.
By contrast Mansfield and Newport were far more agricultural, their squads could easily be mistaken for Rugby League sides. Not so much kick and rush, as kick, push, kick, haul, grapple, rush. Perhaps I’m being unfair, but I’m backing Newport in the final as the more physical sides we can avoid next season the better.
