That'll do for me, we can win that if we approach it with the same attitude as the Gateshead game.  Two teams of differing skill levels I know but if we apply ourselves in the same way we should come away with a W.


Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.

Can we drop the admission prices for the York cup game so that we can attract a larger crowd?

I agree a good draw a match which we should win........York usually bring a good crowd so should be a good atmosphere as well...........

With 5 all-SL ties, it's a great chance for a couple of Championship clubs to make the Quarters. Obviously no disrespect to a York team that's just beaten Haven, but that's a great draw for us.

Or we could make the quarter finals from Championship 1 (NL2) like in 2004 :) Obviously a long way to go yet though!

I noticed on North West Tonight on BBC1 our tie was completely overlooked, but right at the end of the programme they apologised & gave us a mention. You didn't ring up and give em a bollocking did you Keith? If so well done!

following in the footsteps of the 2003 Lions team. As I've said, a really good opportunity for championship and championship one clubs to make the quarters.

It was me actually. I was infuriated and+ got on the bbc complaints line straightaway.

They were very apologetic and said they would look into it and contact me by e-mail.

Less than 5 minutes later my wife called me in the kitchen to say the announcer had made a grovelling apology and gave out our fixture.

Great win against the Thunder and York at home very winnable if same level of application shown. Now hoping that this much needed win with the confidence gained from it gives us the lift we need to get the points against Barrow on Sunday. See you all at Sedgely. P.S. bring a large coat as its always bloody freezing there.  COME ON YOU LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very interesting draw. With a bit of luck I could see a non-SL team making the semis, a trip to Leigh or Featherstone could see some of this year's lower SL teams beaten.
Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

Seems like an idea worth looking at. Maybe £12 adults, £8 cons well advertised and publicised
