After Giants, who i have followed since 1953.

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.

Dont expect anything from a pig but a grunt

harlequins. simply because each loss questions their right to be in the league. if i ever make my fortune, after i've bought wire a few great players and made sure they're cap breaking is colossal but undetectable i'll stick a shed load of cash into quins or whatever they may be called at that time and get them to 2nd in the table.


foxes or poor people?

Started watching Oldham in 86, first match was Oldham v Australia. When I could drive I started watching Leeds a bit too as there was an Oldham connection with Harris, McDermott and Sinfield who I went to school with. Like many i have a soft spot for the expansion clubs. As a child I spent a year living in Penrith so i like them from the NRL.

Fax first. Then Catalans,South Wales,London Skolars and Gateshead.Its tough trying to promote not just a club but Rugby League to an area with no history of the sport being around. Catalans so that hopefully one fay France can beat England and the game can grow a lot bigger there.

Melbourne Storm for various reason as well as the 3 Queensland teams.

WA Reds.

Living in Perth, Scotland, Perth WA is kind of a 'sister' city.

Also my brother and his family live there.

Bradford Northern/Bulls since 1964 - but the McNamara era has crushed my passion now.

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)

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.

1st Huddersfield

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.

That's me.  I'm done.

Fav: Hull Kingston Rovers

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! laugh.gif

I've always had a soft spot for Bradford.
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.
