So the draw was done live on the internet with NO sound and no visuals.

Fev were drawn away to London Skolars.

But Wath Brow Hornets ball went missing so they had to do it again and we got Workington at home.

Oldham v Blackwood Bulldogs
Gateshead Thunder v York City Knights
London Skolars v Limoux
Doncaster v Siddal
Rochdale Hornets v Lezignan
Drighlington v Dewsbury Rams

Warra shambles.At least we get to play at home. And we can't take anything for granted with our early season form.

I wonder if they'll resurrect the Billy Ivison Trophy as a side-bet ?

How difficult can it be to put all the balls in the bag? Over the years, I must have done dozens of draws. I might be tempting fate, but it's never happened to me. dry.gif

By the time we play Hunslet we could be definitely out of the cup so could send a reserve team.Workington at home gives us much needed income for bar takings etc so it is a good draw.

sounds all doom and gloom on here at the moment Phil .Fans worried about Hunslet worried about Workington potentially Featherstone should be looking at top 4 in the league not worrying about beating teams in a lower league the Leigh game sounded out of character for your boys but every team has a blip now and again.think your right about playing the Huns they will surely test any non confidence you may have with your league position as it is the cup has to take priority as far as revenue is concerned early days for your boys yet so get behind them

We had too many blips last season so i'm not sure it is out of character. When we lose we seem to lose big style. Leigh would have been relegated had it not been for Gateshead going bust yet they have strengthened and to watch them on Sunday you would have thought it was Fev who had got the reprive.They have strengthened but so apparently have we. Doom and gloom yes but it won't stop me from supporting them. I have to say it as I see it though and after the first two competitive games I have to say thay I am worried.

Isn't the Billy Iveson trophy played for every time Fev and Town meet. Fev will be the holders of it by winning at Town a couple of seasons ago where we gave you a game for 40 minutes ( I think it was 8 - 6 at half-time and then Fev ran away with it in the 2nd half).

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
