Can you remember which teams it was we nilled at DP? I remember one being Bradford.


We only nilled one team at DP - beat Salford 34-0 - but we kept other teams to low scores such as Fev 2, Hull 4 etc

Also, that was the season we got the club record victory when we beat Leigh 94-4.

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

Are you sure? I thought we nilled 2 or 3 on the bounce. I remember us battering Bradford though when they were still the steampigs. Though we could probably give em a good game now... tongue.gif

Bradford was something like 34-12. It was played 3 days after an England game in which Newlove got injured and so missed the Town game. Dave Watson got sin binned and we scored three tries while he was off the field.

Seem to remember Shaun Austerfield debuted for them and had a nightmare at fullback.

Can't remember any other nillings than Salford.

Ive been trying to find results from that season and cant find em anywhere. Though your recollection does sound right to be fair, your memory is obviously a hell of a lot better than mine. Thinking back to that side is fun though, that pack was as good as anything in the league then. I can remember us losing our 1st game to Leeds only because Fawcett went off injured after dominating Iro all game, and narrowly losing to Saints with pickavance making the difference coming on as sub.

Sorry biggrin.gif

It was quite funny after the game watching your chairman demand the club blazers and ties back from the players in the bar saying they weren't fit to wear them ! I think he was very close to not letting them back on the bus and leaving them stranded biggrin.gif

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.
