Shenton seems to me to leak game awareness, while being neither quick enough nor big enough to compensate. He should spend his every waking moment watching old Martin Gleeson videos to lean the art of centre play...

My god, it's only Feb and I think we have a contender for funniest post of the year
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.

Do you mean my suggestion that Shenon could learn from watching Gleeson?
I pride myself on my dry wit, so am happy to take credit whenever it's given, but i hope to improve on that in the "funnies" department before the year is out. I have my script writers working on a Blue Peter/Richie Myler routine which I trust will have J B laughing till the Greenall Whitleys comes out of his nose.

Any thoughts on how the two teams went? Could it have been worse or did Cas finally get playing?

Very pleased to get a win on the board - Cas were always going to make a game of it and the daft predictions early in the thread were disrespectful.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Wire got a few lucky breaks early on, possibly deserved by going for the basketball-style of play from the off, and the game was over within 15 minutes.

Cas, to their huge credit, stuck to their game plan throughout and capitalised on a number of mistakes and daft penalties. If Wire are going to play this way all season its going to be very entertaining but we will concede plenty of points.

I thought the Cas number 8 (Walker?) had a massive game and Mason was also a nuisance.

We reckoned between us that at least 6 Rangi Chase passes went to ground, suggesting either that he was a bit rusty or his outside backs are not quite sharp enough for him. If some of his passes had stuck we'd have been in massive trouble.

As for Wire, Westwood was his usual self, throwing hiimself all over the pitch, and Richie Myler was a constant threat. Briers looked to have taken a knock very early on and was off the pace, so Ratchford was thrown on and Briers never came back on with the game already won.

Overall, not too many new lessons learned: Wire should score a bucketload of tries again this season but need to tighten up on the last tackle in defence. As for Cas, well its early days obviously but they look as though they will be very competitive and will shock quite a few teams this season if they keep their main men fit. They certainly looked up for it yesterday and never gave up.

Wire to rack up a score that Michael Vaughan would have been proud of.


Eerily prescient. Only it was a 'Strictly Come Dancing' score rather than a Cricket one.
