Not with you Kenny???

well your old mate Millman pointed you out to me at Belle Vue last time I was there and says he regularly sees you down there with your Grandson - to be fair though, as the club is just on your doorstep I can understand it
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.

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.

Some top folk at Barrow. I know daft Dez had his critics - and who on earth could blame them, but even he was pleasant enough when I spoke to him.
But now there are some top folk on board up there. As you say it's an old gaff that's falling down..... but it remains one of my fav places to visit and I'm so glad the fixture is back on this time.

Don't even get to my own team's games, never mind others!

Have had to resort to attending the bigger event games.

I can't say I watch very often, but Wigan, and Hull KR I admire and are results I look out for......

Imagine if in 1895 they had internet forums.............rugby league would not exist!

Occasionally watch Wakey, largely due to my mate's company using the hospitality facilities most games, whenever there's a free space, he invites me along.

Also watch PRUFC on a saturday afternoon and enjoy a few beers in the clubhouse with my old man, who lives nearby.

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.

Hunslet since 1966, Leeds since 1971...

Bradford many times - would have been a Bradford fan if Hunslet had gone in 1973

Keighleys a great ride over the hill

Batley, Fartown and Wakefield.

My dad's work used to have a box at Wakey. I would drive him there and pick him up every other week, but never went to a match myself because I had absolutely no interest in watching rugby league.

What a difference a few years makes...

Don't really have the chance with the nearest semi pro/professional club an hour and a halves drive away. Do try and watch as much as I can on the tele though.

I go to watch the Skolars regularly and the Broncos occasionally. Looking forward to seeing them play each other tomorrow afternoon.

You caught me on the one and only occasion Kenny, took my grandson, Jack, to see the mighty Wigan. You'll remember that Tomkins try no doubt? Should have introduced yourself. Where the hell's Millman by the way and who hell is he????

When I was young, free and single I'd go to a game almost every Sunday as well as playing on a Saturday. If Wigan were too far away for me to get to (I often had to work until 1pm), I'd go to St Helens, Widnes or Warrington. When Chorley started up I'd often go down to Victory park and support them.

Like some others I struggle to make Wigan games these days, mainly due to the fact that my job takes me all round the country. I often count myself lucky to be home in time to sit in front of the TV on a Friday night to see a game on Sky. :(

Ill be lucky to get to Shedingley 10 times this year but another vote here for the Gallant Youths - only a handful of games over the years as other responsibilities take prescedence, but very homely in a 'grim up north style, and Dewsbury as well

1. Leigh - can't get there often, but I take advantage of the Leigh Life radio and video updates
2. Any amateur game I can get to where the son in law is reffing - love the the whole package : blood and guts RL ; touchline closeness (surprising what you hear) ; the banter can't be beaten ; good grub at cheap prices ; meeting people ; getting to all sorts of places. Favourites are Siddal, Saddleworth, Wath Brow and the SOO street of origin games between Leigh East & Leigh Miners, especially at night - and for closeness a walk up to see what Newsome Panthers are up to
3. Giants - had a ST last year, but can't afford this - so will go whenever we can
Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer
