In no particular order of preference.
Wakey, cause they were a pleasure to watch in the sixties, and i still like em for it.
Wigan, because they have great fans (by and large ) who support through the bad ,as well as good.
Leeds, and in truth i dont really know why, but for some reason i do.
Saints, because of the great style of play they have maintained over many years.
Fev, because for such a small place they have punched above their weight.

Living in Perth, Scotland, Perth WA is kind of a 'sister' city.
Also my brother and his family live there.

Since then - I have mellowed my views toward some clubs I used to dislike intensely (based on either obnoxious fans in my vicinity or similar players or coaches....)
I too like to see the "expansion" clubs do well - Catalan, Crusaders & London and this thread is interesting that it has pulled out a few like minded thinkers into saying so..
I admire Wigan for their planning and marketing.
Glad to see Warrington increase their gates
Pleased for Salford with their new ground and cash to spend.
Soft spot for Wakefield due to spending time in the past with Neil Fox - who - for all his achievments, is an absolutley fantastic person with no edge - a true gent and epitomises our sport. Also have great memories of Ian Brook & Berwyn Jones.
Batley Bulldogs and Sheffield in the lower divisions
Paramatta in Aus (Brian Smith connection)

Favourite - Huddersfield
2nd - Leeds
Other Notables - Back in the day, Wolverhampton Wizards/Warlords, up here Emley and Newsome
Australian - Eels, me mum lived in Parramatta for a while
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.

After that, London Skolars - was a regular at Mini Odsal for a long time until we moved back to Yorkshire. I also like to see Cas, Swinton, Hunslet and Batley go well.
In Aussie - it has to be Souths. Followed by St George.
Internationally I always cheer for France, even when they play GB/England.
....while two leagues of 12 with an 8-8-8 split was viewed as a compromise, sponsors were not keen to be associated with the bottom 16 after the split.
Guggisberg said: “We changed to a league of 10 in 2003 because the second part of the championship didn’t work. It was very complicated for television and sponsors who didn’t want to be associated with any meaningless matches. It is much easier to have two separate divisions."

Not because your traditional shirts and ours used to look the same on b&w tv?
Posted 24 September 2010 - 08:14 AM
2nd - Barrow
Other Notables - Saints, Wigan, Warrington, all NRL clubs ( great to watch, i NEED this during the bulls current form )
Australian - Rabbitohs
Posted 24 September 2010 - 08:21 AM
Other clubs: Hmmmmm. difficult, as it appears to change from time to time. When we were in the lower leagues, I used to watch SL on tv and mostly wanted the Bulls to win. Now being in amongst the big boys, I look at the teams we left behind and have huge respect for Batley in particular.
Oh, and I love whoever Hull happen to be playing on any given week!

Those were the days EH ! Black and white telly , and everone covered in mud
Posted 24 September 2010 - 08:35 AM
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.

"At Watersheddin's it used t'be good
To watch 'em feight for t'ball in t'mud
But now the game has changed tha sees
They can't play dirty on TV!
Eddie Warin' is a bum
Eddie Watin' is a bum
Ey aye addy Eddie Warin' is a bum!"

SL: I'm an expansionist so Quins, Crusaders and Catalans
Championship: Skolars, Scorpions, Thunder
Amateur: Ex Kingston Warrior so it must be Elmbridge! Also again any expansion teams so always had a soft spot for Peterlee for trying to make the step up to the BARLA leagues
