Halifax and Rochdale. I've watched Halifax for quite a few years now.

I don't do fax much. A good rivalry building up now between fev n fax. Always an edge to that game and it transfers to the pitch cos we've seen some belting games of late.

I support Wakefield but watch the amateur game, usually at Sharlston Rovers but do take in Batley and Dewsbury when Wakefield don't have a game.

I used to watch Wigan occasionally when I couldn't travel to Saints away matches. I recall Wigan defeating a powerful Hull KR side in a league match at Central Park, which ended up with the Wigan players doing a lap of honour, such was the enormity of what they'd achieved.

I never miss Eccles games. I only ever miss Crusaders games when Eccles are playing. If neither of them are playing I will find a game of Rugby League to watch every Saturday and Sunday at any level, except Super League. Like a few others on here I have a real soft spot for Batley. Tend to find myself there at least once a season.

Watch Egremont in the amatuer game whenever they are at home and often go to the Brow if they are at home ang Egremont away, from next season will add Kells to that list. Proffessionally, go to most of Whithaven's home games, work permitting and will go to watch many other Championship teams any any superleague clubs when the chance presents itself

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.


I watch swinton, and now whitehaven, but my is Widnes Vikings is my club.

I occasionally go to the Mount when not watching Fev. I must admit that my attitude to Leeds has mellowed over the years, Twenty years ago I used to actively hate them. But they play such attractive football and Sinfield is such a great player I've come to be something of an admirer (on TV not at Headingley)

My Superleague club is Saints but I want both Salford and London to do well.

In the Championship I support a Yorkshire club (Sheffield) and a Lancashire club (Leigh) but only on TV as I can't afford to be there in person (but would be sometimes if I could afford to be).

In Championship 1 I am a bit conflicted. I want both Welsh teams to succeed but I consistently lean towards North Wales Crusaders as apart from anything else they have a terrific nucleus of fans who deserve a club that finally succeeds IMO. I also want the Skolars to do well as that club has been at the forefront of so much that is good in London development and they keep slogging away no matter what. It is a shame they got a trouncing at the hands of the Broncos in the Capital Challenge; the Broncos had no need to play such a strong team on that occasion given their upcoming date with the Dragons. Still, I will keep my fingers crossed that they can go one better this season and get into the Championship 1 play offs. However, I'm conflicted this season as I would also like to see the newbies have good seasons, I have developed a soft spot for Oldham (and if I were to win millions in the lottery I would build Oldham a new thief-proof club house) but I suppose I should be supporting Rochdale given that Saints have all but taken the club over. Alas! I will have to see how the Champ 1 season pans out to see if a favourite club emerges.

I don't watch any amateur RL but that isn't a conscious decision; just that there are so many in St Helens that I wouldn't know who to support. I want them all to do well I suppose.

In the NRL I supported the Bulldogs last season but only because James Graham plays for them.

Internationally aside from wanting England to win everything, I would like Wales to do well.

I kinda fell into watching Huddersfield Underbank a couple of years ago in the Conference. Now, if I have a free Saturday and they're at home I'll go and have a watch. I probably saw them half a dozen times in 2012 - and even went to the GF at Fev to give 'em a cheer!

Other than that, the only other club's jersey I wear to support them is Newtown Jets. Great people, great tradition, great club - and I get to see them twice more this year.

I may do that although I will have yet another conflict because I want the Cru to do well as well as all the Sintellins amateur clubs! My rugby league life is not straightforward ...

the facilities at close street are excellent, anyone going by car it is just off elephant lane in the thatto heath area of sthelens, turn at the emmanuel church building and the club is just behind that.
