Great news in my opinion see here

This will be one very competetive season to come!
I'm sure I'll think of something funny to say soon.

Does this mean Gateshead are effectively relegated then? Hope they keep Gateshead up and make it a 12 team league, then add Bramley and another Conference side into Championship 1.

Edit : Nope Thunder are down...

That is good news, id rather see us play a real club like Leigh anyday instead of a falsely propped up with aussie imports Gateshead. If it aint got a soul then whats the point in it?

Although I fully agree with Leigh's reintroduction. Do you think if we had been in the same predicament would we have been reinstated?
Just a thought!!! wink.gif
The truth is out there?

there's no evidence (i can see) to suggest we wouldn't have been treated any differently?

I feel a bit sorry for G'head, as some of their fans were ace and I genuinely enjoyed the trip to the toon. It's a great weekend away!

But Leigh will make for a much better competition!

I agree Gateshead Fans are great. I meet them both at the Blackpool 9s.

Prat! It was only last week you was moaning about somebody going onto the Keighley forum spoiling topics so why come onto here and do it?

I got to know a few of the Gateshead fans well and thought they were a great bunch and enjoyed their company. However, I think it is right Leigh stay in our division as it will be better quality rugby and from what Ive heard Gateshead will struggle in Champ 1 let alone our division.

I can sympathise with the fans up there. Not their fault that mismanagement etc has resulted in this. Great fans from the amateur game upwards.

Gateshead fans are good. But few travel.
It is a fact. A grand total of two came to the 9s.
I spent time with them on both days and they were disappointed by their own clubs turn out.

Most other clubs had a few dozen or more.

I wasn't moaning about people spoiling posts, just correcting somebody like yourself who calls people names without knowing the facts.

YAWN!

Its funny that you know for a FACT that there were only 2 at Blackpool, did you go all the way around the ground asking which team they support? Thought not! so you dont know for a FACT that there were only 2!

Its ammusing that you was on the Keighley forum saying the same thing FACT FACT FACT!

The topic was about Leigh being reinstated and turned into Gatesheads dimise, it didnt need people like you taking a cheap swipe at them. You got promoted, good for you, but that doesnt mean have a dig at their fan base (and before you reply read carefully what you said - you actually claimed they only had 2 fans).

Bye cool.gif

(shame theres only 2 people use the Keighley forum - thats a fact!) or is it?

But, in agreement with Sliggster1, your sneering contribution to this thread was not necessary, and contributed little or nothing to the thread.

A great opportunity missed to improve the split of clubs in the league.

Division Three was crying out for extra games whilst Division Two clubs were trying to cram in those postponed games at the end of the season.
