Would it be fair to say that after recent years when Yorkshire cluubs like Bradford and Leeds have enjoyed great success that the tide has turned with Lancashire (Yes I know the boundary argument blah blah) with Wigan, Saints and Wire are now going to dominate SL?

York, Halifax.....
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.

Leeds have had a poor year but they are still Yorkshire's best team. Next year will be interesting to see if their decline continues, if so then I can't see further than Wigan, Saints and Wire for top 3 again.

Not really Lancashire dominating considering Warrington is in Cheshire and St Helens is in Merseyside.

Not true. Warrington is a unitary authority which is split roughly in half by the river Mersey in terms of the old county boundaries. The town centre and anything north is technically in Lancashire and anything to the south of the Mersey is in Cheshire.

If it's not in Cheshire why were the Cheshire police at the HJ today then?

Every organisation for anything / everything has it's own geographical boundaries.

Police forces are not based on county boundaries. For example in the midlands West Mercia police force covers 3 counties. I believe there is still a Humberside police even though Humberside ceased to exist a long time ago.

Of course, just editing the original post of winners as Hunslet were missed off.

they certainly have the best grounds.

hudds have a good ground but no chance of filling it any time soon

be interesting to see what crowds saints get in the new stadium, and if wigan can grow their crowds with the good form over the next few years

I reckon Allan is trying to get Saints (and some Wigan) posters back on his side after recent fall outs!

Key phrase there is "authority area of Cheshire". All that these areas represent are areas of local government or administration. They are not counties in the traditional sense.

But administrative areas is exactly what counties are. If we're going to start claiming, then we (the West Riding of Yorkshire) will have Saddleworth, the Trough of Bowland and Sedberg back for starters.
