We have another good local lad in the pack, who was at Leeds academy, and gives great performances every game, one to watch for, Liam McAvoy.

 

Not a good draw for either side but a good one for the winners.   I read somewhere that SL club fans can use their season tickets for this round and next round is all pay.    Not sure how true that is but if it is then it's better for the winners of our tie.


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.

That's him.   What a workhorse he has been for us this season already.

How's the young lad Grimshaw who caught the eye here then looked like he got a bad injury ? Hope he's back fully right .

£12 to watch oxford was too much. I'd say £7 max. Esp against a team no better than hunslet old boys

Agree 100% with that comment Macca , teams like these should'nt even be in the pro game , Cup or League , team like Sharlston win all 5 cups and are not even entered into the challenge cup because their a winter team and they've been going longer than some of the Super League clubs , and i wonder how many fans Oxford brought ....................RFL so corrupt...........

The annoying thing is rik is the rfl were happy to watch the likes of bramley and blackpool go bust with no help yet they'll bail these clubs out in a couple of years when the project goes belly up. It's become a joke

Aren't new clubs allowed to start up?

Any new club that starts up won't straight away have away following especially long distance.

These clubs from the outside seem to have the same level of home support as us & I am sure we have had a fair few hammering in the past.

Time will tell if they will survive living within their means in the semi pro game.
But surely they deserve the chance to at least give it a go.

Skolars are still going & I am sure people questioned their presence.

I agree completely regarding the winter teams not being allowed to compete in the challenge cup, especially when fev & skolars had bye's into the next round.
rugby league forbids RL in winter now, yet for a 100 years of playing RL it was acceptable.
