Macgraff plays !!!!! Dowes rested , Carter to with a few knocks n niggles . Shacks up to prop. Miller fullback . Makes sense if players are bruised to give them a spell . Still more than a good enough squad and good to see Elliot at fullback in the action ! He'll love that .

It says on the main forum that Thomas Coyle who is on loan at Hunslet won't be playing.


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.

Dowes doesn't make many errors says Charlo . He's made far to many for a guy of his pedigree in my opinion and hasn't ran in with enough line bending power . To often he tries to be to fancy and play like a halfback . He needs to go back to basics and just run in strongly and secure the ball.

he slows down when he runs it in, and totally agree he offloads far too often in stupid situations. if you compare his running in compared to thacks and acton then its like night and day. carter will be a big miss though, his attacking form is top notch at tbe minute

Brett has had is clean out op and should be back soon

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."

"Imagination is more important than knowledge."

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

"Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence."

Yep Carter back fit n fresh after a short breather .No worries having a look at Eliott there in the meantime . You can tell he's bursting to get involved in the action ! Good news on big Brett , top notch player for us .

The met office provides the bbc forecasts , the leading broadcast meteorology unit in the world ... And short to medium term forecasts in particular .

I'd trust the BBC weather over any other forecast in the short term. Longer term probably not.
xc weather seems to be based upon another weather website that I used to use a few years ago - I stopped as it was so inaccurate.

BBC weather has now brought the time of the main rain ending by an hour.
Even xc weather (if it is to be believed) has the sum total of 4.5mm of rain between now and 10pm for Workington, not exactly wet is it?

Its stopped raining with me and the midges are out. (Though xc weather says it should be raining till 10pm). Can trust that site as much as you could Haven to pay their bills.

Indeed . Longer term forecasts are hard for every forecaster !! Countryfile go the whole week which is totally pointless , really it's just a percentage chance of being accurate ( about 25 % ) . 24 to 72 hours seems to be the limit for accuracy . In America they put the percentage on the screen , should do that here and people then wouldn't take it as gospel as they often do
