fine
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

No reason whatsoever why it should.

Tbh anyone who thinks along those lines is really going to damage both clubs' chances of staying in SL, because both clubs are way off where they need to be re. their grounds despite the years of hot air & waffle.

Common sense breaks out at last.

Couldn't care less whether they merge or not or, for that matter, whether either club remains in Super League in the long term (although it's obviously in everyone's interests to have at least one club in that area).

However, the idea of public money being poured into two separate white elephants at a time when schools etc are being denied refurbs etc, was pretty obscene.

Good move if it comes off.

No need to merge if they don't want to but both clubs get what they need and share the costs.

If they did merge they could be a very serious force to be reckoned with in the area, but just get the brickwork sorted that's what is needed a.s.a.p.

Wakefield have continually told Cas they would be prepared to share a stadium with them, each time they have been told Cas want to go alone...This latest outburst is driven by the WMDC I believe. We shall see what happens to the plans for two stadiums without WMDC backing..

Don't think anyone would disagree with that, but just to expand this topic further.


There are only two possible sites available, one being Newmarket and the other being Glasshoughton, which would be your choice or wouldn't it matter if both could work ?

So lets build it at Glasshoughton which as all the other items of interest to the public, and may I point out this is purely ground sharing not merging.

Probably the only way that both clubs can retain their Super League places.

Seems like the logical move to me, especially if it means both clubs can get a purpose built Rugby ground and don't have to tolerate sharing with another sport.

Hopefully it'll be the spring board to help both clubs build for the future.

Seems like a logical move for all those people that think Wakefield and Castleford are the same place. Build it in Wakefield and Cas will wither, build it in Cas and the reverse will happen.

Don't be silly the funding is fully in place for both stadia and they are due to start building in the next week or so just in time for 2012.

To anybody with half a brain a shared stadium makes the most sense. Going for their own grounds prevents either from getting one.

I feel the same way about the likes of Everton and Liverpool. Why waste money (often taxpayers) on two separate grounds?

Can't be accurate anyway. As we've all been told time and time again all the funding for both stadiums are in place, and they're starting the build in two weeks or so. We've seen many a pretty picture of what both will look like.

The funding for over 700 schools was also 'in place' using public money. The problem being that we can't go on borrowing 1 for every 4 we raise in taxes any longer.

I think that the two clubs need to start thinking about a merger, because that stadium is not going to be started, let alone built, by early 2011. So both clubs face losing their SL licenses. We may see both of them in the Championship in 2012. I certainly hope so, because Widnes (somewhat) and Toulouse (massively) will bring more to the popularity and prosperity of the game from 2012 on --- as will Sheffield, London II, South Wales, Paris, and Lyon in later years.

It is still an open question as to whether Super League needs more than three West Yorkshire clubs. As I have long argued, as had Uncle Mo, as a concession to the fans, there could be a Calder United club in Super League. The compromise name could be Calder Trinity Tigers. They would then use one new 12,000 capacity stadium, as would both Wakefield and Castleford Championship teams.
