15 to be precise. It's a first merging 3 weekends into 2 weeks.
It was only the Whitehaven game that the team have been at a disadvantage. The other games we have either had the same days rest, for Batley game. Then we had a extra day than sheffield for that game with almost a full weeks rest, then Whitehaven have a had the advantage with only a 4 day turnaround for hunslet. But by Eatons logic we both have played 2 games in a week

.

I think his point is that it's more than usual, and it's taken it's toll on the players, regardless of what the other sides have done, 4 games in 15 days is tough on the players, particularly those having played in each of them

Either way of looking at it, we have lost all our games while Sheffield have played the same amount and won all theirs.

Sheffield will also spend 2 or 3 times what we do on the salary cap. davey, henderson, brambani and walker probably cost nearly as much as our whole cap, that's before even thinking about QLT & misi.

Don't forget we have got full time pro's in Moore, Achurch & Keinhurst playing.

...contrasted with how many tries we score from our own kicks ... maybe 10% ??

To be pedantically accurate it's been four games in 14 days and around 95 minutes.

However, the next three games are a fortnight apart (or three games in 28 days and 95 minutes). Wonder what the excuse will be then??

We had 4 + 1 Loan signing (Coyle) which counts towards the total of 5.  If we get another loan signing, say Brough! Then we could only play 3 Leeds D/R players

I didn't realise loan players counted towards a dual-reg quota

We never seem to find out who gets the MOTM for each game.  Is there a way of finding out?
 
What also blows my mind is this Premier team of the week??? :sclerosis:  How do they pick them?  They must say, "who were the best 4 players in the game" then pick 4th place.
 
I remember when we played Swinton.  Watson scored a hat trick and the Swinton FB (Hawkyard or something) was Full back of the week!!! :O
 
More bewildering than our league position !!!!!

Pinstickers..

I was talking to that chap on Sunday, who interviews Eton on the video highlights - cant remember his name (one who wears a tie).  He was telling me loanees count in the quota.
