Just to echo a posting by suzzy -- look at the amount of interest this topic has generated-- almost 2500 views at the time of writing-- if they ALL turn up for the first game we'll be in the money.

P+R to me is the only way fans would come back and i think thats maybe a bit late,but the partnership and media thing with Leeds (Hetherington) is my only concern.......all will be revealed

don't forget Leeds allow us to keep all the receipts from the Lazenby cup games.

Ang also put the boot in with the Hunslet/Bradford CCup bill for the rent of the ground

right having slept on it last night and read and thought about it this morning these are the questions i would like some answers to asap.these are the things that concern me about the deal.these are in no particular order.

1. why was this not announced at the dewsbury game on sunday.if its such a fantastic deal why hide it till no supporters about.

2. what happens if leeds get injuries.as their players surely leeds can recall them if needed even if we have them on season long deals.

3. what is gary hetherington interest with hunslet all of a sudden.his history makes me very worried thats he's involved.

4. do we have to play these players even if they have a drop in from.

im sure many more questions will arise but these are the ones that concern me the most.

over to whoever made the decision for the answers now.

It was common knowledge at the game on Sunday what was happening with the whinos. Everybody was talking about it so I find it very strange you knew nothing about it

wasnt at the game sunday macca due to work commitments but my dad and sister were there and heard no announcement about it.wasnt in the programme either i believe.think people may have heard about it from word of mouth but surely sunday was a good time to tell people about it face to face and may have calmed people down a bit.

I don't know the answers to your questions but for what its worth, my opinion on the first question is that it was right to announce it after the game. It's a sensitive subject and it will take time for some fans to make sense of the deal (hopefully once more details are announced). The timing of it got us some exposure and the effect of it will wear of in time for it not to affect season ticket sales (hopefully). From a business perspective, the timing was right but I can understand why people who went to the game might be miffed about not knowing.

I'm not so sure a meeting after the game would have been a good idea. when people have had a few beers They can sometimes get a bit over excited when they hear news like that. I personally think its been handled the best way possible

Col i cant say too much on this for obvious reasons, and a press release on the FACTS of the partnership will be released in due course, all i can say is that this partnership is simply about a dual registration agreement for 4 Leeds Rhinos players to join Hunslet Hawks on loan for the 2013 season. Its nothing to do with mergers, Leeds taking over the club or Hetherington plotting. Its about Hunslet Hawks taking advantage of the dual registration system like every over club outside Super league to benefit our club to improve the team and be more competitive in 2013, and that's my one and only comment on this until the official statement is released. Gaz

Gaz its been heart breaking this season watching the results every week both with the Hawks and the Knights both have under achieved big style i know injuries have been a large factor for this but next season is going to be massive in respect of staying in the championship and recruitment to enable the Hawks to compete has got to be top of the agenda so if the four lads from the rhinos dont come with the right attitude to compete then it wont be fair to the rest of the squad but if they are wanting to impress Mr Mcdermott then it can only be a boost to the squad the supporters should be prepared to show their loyalty to the club and at least give next season a chance.

For those that have attended the HIST meetings (very few people in fact) we were told by Barry Eaton that we were looking to get DR players from Leeds and were working with them however Barry said that he wanted to make sure that Leeds couldn't just lend us a player for a couple of weeks and then recall him as this would not be beneficial to us. It sounded more like that Barry wanted DR players longer term.This was communicated to us about 6 months ago so this news is no secret in my eyes and I don't see this as a shock
