how many on here actively watch another team besides the one that you support, when widnes were in the CC i used to watch saints as well but now were are in super league i watch north wales crusaders, i have developed quite a soft spot for them and hope they have a good season.......................but widnes are still my number 1 club after all the highs and lows of the past 49 years of being a supporter i am as avid a supporter these days as i was when i was a young lad.

Wouldn't say I particularly go directly to another club, but I will occasionally go to another Championship fixture if it doesn't clash with a Leigh game (they do generally tend to be Swinton because of the ease of it being at Leigh or Halifax or Fev due to having mates who support them).

Batley oe dews. I like to watch leigh or Barrow ehen they come to God's own county.
Selby warriors occasionally - they're a good set.
If fev haven't got a game I can usually find some rugby somewhere tho I do admit to enjoying the craic up at the mount.

hmmm - are you sure that's it Terry?
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.

Batley because I find the club a cracking one. On small occcasins Hunslet if they have a night game because my local office is near the South Leeds stadium.

In addition I help coach my lads Under 11's Fev Lions team.

It's a shame you don't take more of the 'we love the game more than you do' gang with you.

Leeds Rhinos and St Albans Centurions fan, but I've also been to London, North Herts, Featherstone, Castleford, Wakefield, Milford, Leeds Met, Denmark, Hemel, East Leeds, Kippax matches.

I'll basically go to whatever's on when I'm in the area.

It would appear that you and me agree on a lot. When I was the club commentator the Barrow club used to make us feel so welcome. The ground is old but you is always a great view and a superb atmosphere.

At that time Dean Marwood was doing the Barrow commentary and I found the bloke very friendly and knowlegeable.

I watch Derby City (naturally) and will go out of my way to watch Catalans when on holiday.Taking the two boys this year.

Strange as it may seem I'm going to go to Fev this season as well. Never been before but they played in the first game I ever saw at Headingley (centuries ago!). Always had a soft spot for them and if I like it I'll go back.

Derby City - proud to be flying the flag for Rugby League in the Midlands for over 24 years.

It's a lot easier to park there than at Headingley!
