Yeah, I'm so sick of London winning on tv.


You know what I meant. Losing to a SL team week in week out is nothing compared to if we turn them over. Which I think we could but I would prefer us to give them the game by default myself.

Sounds like the Nathan Brown coaching manual. No number 9, getting the 6's mixed up and using 1-33.

:lol:

Batley v Huddersfield should be a good one from the DR perspective.

Yeah I noticed that also, Wigan v Leigh too.

Lil help from Warrington fans, I remember Keighley v Warrington from a season or two ago but is it just the twice they've been drawn together in recent seasons?

Is that three years on the bounce now that Warrington have drawn Keighley in the 4th round of the Cup?

By a happy coincidence London Broncos U19s have a home game v Featherstone that weekend. Currently at the Military Stadium in Aldershot. Now if they're still having trouble using The Stoop I wouldn't be surprised to see the Challenge Cup game staged there too. I think it could comfortably accommodate the 650 odd that attended the equivalent fixture against Dewsbury last year.

I hope for the sake of the Fev fans that do decide to travel (I doubt I will be), that a decision is made as to venue asap. If it is on tv, and I reckon it could potentially be a close game, I suspect it will be a tiny crowd.

I know I live in that furriner land, but did I miss something in the last New Year's Honours list?  Official press release from Toulouse Olympique below:

 

Le TO ira à York en 16ème de la Cup

 

Sir Alex Murphy, un légendaire ancien Lion britannique, a procédé au tirage des 16èmes de finale de la Challenge Cup cet après-midi (lundi 08/04) et a envoyé le Toulouse Olympique une nouvelle fois en déplacement chez un pensionnaire du Championship (2ème division anglaise), les York City Knights. Les Toulousains se déplaceront dans cette ville historique de l’Angleterre, située non loin de Leeds, le week-end du 20-21 avril.

I hope they put KR and Saints on tele. KR are one of the few sides whose support isn't that affected by TV games.

Gloucester vs Salford? I feel sorry for the Old Golds. Not much chance of making it through to the next round, and even less of a big money payday.

 

What am I saying? Anyone know what odds I can get on Gloucester? :(

Only the 2nd time that Town and Haven have been drawn together in the Cup, the only other time being in 1968. Should be a tasty encounter.

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

Doubt if Fev will put out a second string team to play Broncos, which is what Dewsbury did last season. I'm sure they've got more respect for the competition than the Rams (and probably fancy their chances of a win!)
