I like this one better





A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

are you saying both clubs are for the chop rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif


I am saying that Wakefield have played themsleves into near certainties for the chop, while Castleford are now 50-50. Both have received warning letters from the RFL but both seem unable to satisfy the demands of the RFL.

Next weekend will be very important for Castleford regarding the SL license decisionmaking of 2011. But I think that Wakefield are by now goners.

Remind who is bottom of SL? And how did Toulouse go on against a weakened Fax side this week? Where are Toulouse in the Championship? Before worrying about English teams you should be worried at the poor standard of the French teams.

I w(ould say as a rugby supporter you are correct because wakefield have made no effort to progress from the level they are, but as a featherstone supporter castleford do deserve top flight status look at the preview to the callenge cup yet again a castleford school(credit where its due) competing for the school championship. they have a core support that can match warrington any day of the week. all they need is the quality arena they deserve wacko.gif wacko.gif i would take my hat off when they get it closedeyes.gif closedeyes.gif closedeyes.gif

Featherstone don't yet have an adequate stadium (based on what I saw in 2007) that will seat 10,000. They also are most unlikely to have the business plan, nor convince the RFL that they could attract the crowds necessary.

The RFL are also looking at the traffic jam of west Yorkshire clubs (5 at the moment), and perhaps thinking that the game needs more geographical balance, with fewer west Yorkshire and perhaps more expansion in the south of England, in Wales, and in France.

If the South Wales Scorpions continue to progress they will be a shoe in by 2018, and maybe sneak in earlier (depending on what happens with Crusaders as well). This Welsh expansion, as well as more southern England clubs, is more attractive to the TV companies than persisting with 5 or even 4 west Yorkshire clubs.

yes you are correct at the moment but fev have plans for the future and a ground to reflect it, but i suppose is the crowd is a question but with either or both our locals the crowd and the rugby which we are playing come 2014( what we are going for is reallistic) if we win the next 3 grand finals do we deserve a right

I think that it will still be tough for Featherstone to get a license in 2014 round. They are a powerhouse in the Championship, and are likely to remain so. But I think that the RFL wants to continue to upgrade the Championship, with a new TV contract and more sponsors. They could well be thinking that the three way local rivalry between Wakefield, Castleford and Featherstone --- along with the challenges of Leigh, Halifax, and Barrow --- will make that 2nd tier compeitition a huge commercial success in its own right.

You do talk some rubbish. "Unable to satisfy the demands of the RFL?" Think you need to do a little more research and realise that Cas will be submitting detailed planning in October with building to start in Spring. Wakefield, OPP permitting, same timeline.

Cannot see us going to Knowsley Rd and spoiling their party so the onus is on HKR to do us a job.

Think Justin Morgan won't want to go into the playoffs on two defeats so hopefully they'll be going all out for victory.

These promises are for now just promises. Both clubs have been promising for years and not delivering.

We will have a rethink when, and only when, these promises become a reality.

West Yorkshire region produces a lot of the game's best talent. But so too does the Wigan-St Helens area, the Leeds-Bradford urban areas, and London metropolitan.
