Is anyone else baffled by theRFLs decision to move the final from Blackpool to Halifax? Surely part of te attraction for us fans was a day/weekend away at the seaside as well as competing in a cup final.Also with Halifax being amongst the favourites for the competition it's not inconceivable that they could have home advantage in the final.

I also read somewhere that the playoff finals are at Leigh this year. I cant see how this can be justified.
Dont worry, it will soon be Christmas!

Daryl Powell's verdict: "There are some pretty weird things going on in the Championship at the moment and they are not strengthening the competition or its integrity".

Couldn't agree with him more!
Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

Fax could win the NR Cup without playing a single game away from the Shay this year!!!!!

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.
