I like the sound of that team Scott, perhaps if Mr. Noble decides not to extend the loan, then the last spot on the bench is a natural place for a Widnes Forward.

If Brett and Jamie are deffo back then that will be the first time in the last 2seasons that we have had all of our pack available for a game, only Rooney, Dowes and Coyle missing from the from the squad. Great news

How can he be missing from the squad if he's not even signed.

 

Or have I missed something??

jonathan signed for 2 years. its a shame stephen isnt signed in as he could have given us options in the back line. i would have him on the wing with elliot inside him, that would seriously give us a lot of pace.

What's happened to Jonathan then Wonky, is he still injured. Yeah I like Steven too, told me he was taking a year out of the game because he's fed up with injuries.

yeah he got injured early last year and i think there was complications with hes op. i would be shocked if we seen him play for town again, which is a huge shame. lets just hope dan rooney gets himself fit and healthy for next gear as hes the best centre we have by quite a distance.

The referee for Sunday .......... Mr. Turley!
I'm a little perplexed, he is a member of the Leigh Referees Association. I thought that meant he can't referee a Leigh game?

Ref: W Turley
Touch J: T Mahar
Touch J: T Selby
Reserve: A Gill
M Com: C Hodgson

What !!! I'm bemused by that . Turley from Leigh and part of the Turley dynasty from Leigh ?
Not impuning the bloke personally but a very strange pick with lots of refs about !!!

Can anyone clarify the ruling?
Answering my own question. I have read through the operational rules and and it appears that there is nothing formal to prevent such an appointment. Can anyone recall another example of such an appointment? I can vaguely recall that a quality referee in the past never got enough chances to officiate at a Cup Final because his home town club was a regular participant (Connelly?).

Well Ganson from St Helens has reffed his hometown team as has Thaler with Wakey and Turley reffed a Leigh amateur team v Haven at Hilton Park a few years ago.

Can anyone clarify the ruling?

Young Dawesy won't be playing this season I don't think.
Hope he doesn't give up after his latest setback.

Thanks for the information westerner, I have just been reading an interesting discussion on the general forum about whether it is fair on referees to allow them to officiate at their hometown clubs? Incidentally I noticed that Mr Hewer once refereed a Whitehaven v Barrow league game. My view is not to question the integrity or neutrality of the referee in such situations, but rather that it unnecessarily places undue pressure on such officials from supporters, perhaps even from both sides. A recent study (Super League) showed that it is possible to arrange appointments where such obvious links are avoided, so why try to prove neutrality by "forcing" the issue
Looking forward to a great game on Sunday.
