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.

Script couldn't have been written any better for Cunningham - what a finish

Feel for Cas mates, but it was always a tough ask

Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer

A man is getting along on the road of wisdom when he realises that his opinion is just an opinion

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home

Gutted - absolutely gutted but also very proud of the lads - listenong to the commentary you would have thought there was only one team there today - I hope they had enough kleenex when Kieron scored.
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

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Feel for the Cas lads after that comeback, but pleased as a saint that it ended the way it did, Keiron now believes in fairy tales biggrin.gif Two exciting games today, hope those due next week can keep it up. As for Warrington, they must be gutted to lose 2nd spot in the last minute of the season. Still all to play for for both teams, just hoping the jinx is still active regarding my team

Since you asked earlier, who do you play next week? laugh.gif laugh.gif

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

My god what a night. Got some great pics of the old girl.
What a fitting end. Emotional for all inc the players. You couldnt write the ending, absolutely brilliant & tbh although we should have wrapped it up thats typical of Saints but I honestly didnt think we had it in us anymore to do last gasp stuff but clearly we do.
I have sobbed for the last 90 mins since KC scored that was me gone & the send off he had was very fitting

Well as a game it was a weird one, I think the occasion was nicely done by the club. I can understand that the Cas fans may have felt a bit put out that there was so much emphasis on the Saints last night, but it had to be that game. We could have waited for the playoff games but the plans would have had to change week to week, and I think all of that would have been too much of a distraction in the playoffs. We've had a chance to say goodbye to the ground and Cunningham. Now the players can concentrate on the import stuff of the playoffs.

Apart from the last 10 minutes for me it looked like a game where both teams had, had a week off and were not up to the speed of SL. The last 10 minutes were intense both in tackling and attacking play. If the whole game had been that intense the it would have been a wow of a game.

I think Cunningham put it right at the end that Saints just couldn't get it right last night but we can put that down to the side show and now it's time to prepare for the playoffs and to keep that monkey clinging on to Warringtons back for a few more weeks.

Won't be able to make the playoff game on Friday, so good luck to the Lads, it's gonna be a tough game. I'll be texting for updates from my mates.


Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

We have played in fits and starts all season. Well done Cas for a magnificant effort. Not too sure how it looks for Carl but clearly he was a passenger once more?
