A very reliable source.

Take it or leave it, believe it or not, I don't really care.

I just thought you should all know.

Just to be clear, Halifax only met the published criteria to be able to apply for a license. That they were able to do so had no bearing on the quality of the application itself.


Thanks for that JTBC.........

As your in the position your in and a gent to boot, I'll take it.

No conspiracies for me. Just a lack of money.

Had they gone in SL they could have ended up in a worse state than Salford or Bradford.

I hear many "from a source I trust" rubbish. Some are right but many not.

If that is the case parky then the RFL probably saved halifax RLFC. So I guess the fax fans have a lot to thank the RFL for.

I can't see anything other than a successful and fruitful business when we get ourselves established. Which yes we would need the 3 year grace to do this.


Well the best of luck to you. here's the plan in full.

1. Get Nabbers to lodge £16.5M with Rovers for the next ten years salary cap.

2. Nick all Cas's best young players as you wave them bye as you go in and they go out

3. All rovers fans to join in objecting to Newmarket.

I'll guarantee you top six with this

Quite. The licensing committee didn't have a crystal ball so even on a choice between Bradford and Fax? They'd take the bigger club all day.

Fair enough and I don't blame you at all for being cynical.

Every club is at their right level at the moment. Fev, Fax, Sheffield, Leigh and Batley can't make the step up to SL in its current guise.

They would all make the step 'up' to a SL 2 much easier though, in my humble opinion.

Just out of interest gav. Why do you think we can't make the step up? As I don't see any blocks in our way just the RFL/SKY.

No that's not how it works Gaz.

The clubs are looked at individually and the top so many get in.

Cas are super skint so may not make the cut. It will be because they are skint not because you are rich.

Out of the 5 top Championship clubs Fev probably could, with Feisal's money and 2/3rds of the Castleford squad that would have just been released to accomodate you...

To be fair gav I think we are the only champ club that could. Finance is everything where SL is concerned and I don't think the others have it to fund a SL campaign.Also they are not hitting the 2.5k average attendances needed either and if they can't get 2.5k through the gates now then I doubt they would get at least the 5k needed to fund a SL campaign.

You could be right Richie. But I just hope we get the chance to prove the people wrong that we can survive and compete with the elite as so many people think we can't and won't.


where will the players come from?

is everything full stop: it was because of finance that we had the breakaway in the first place. Broken time was brought in to stave off professionalism.

Throw enough money around and they'll be there.

It's 8-10K depending on the quality of your stadium.

This is why Fev will need someone rich to prop them up for some time.

Agree. And if, as Gaz says, they're not disposed to waste their hard-earned, they'll want it back at some point. That's my worry.
