Bussey has been playing with the under 20's for the last few games.

Should beat them.  They didn't have all that much to offer when we played up there last month.

The Championship doesn't work like that this season. There's a huge level of inconsistency between teams from game to game. Barrow beat Sheffield at Sheffield yet Keighley put 50 past Barrow. Crusaders and Rochdale both gave Leigh a real fright yet we put up huge scores against those teams. Keighley are very capable on their day - they almost beat Leigh and by all accounts gave as good as they got at Batley last week. You just never know how quite what you're facing each week in the Championship this year.

I've already said this once but this year it is hard to predict the outcome of any match. Only a few matches that have been walk overs. I think Keighley are that bogey team this year, anything can happen when its 13 v 13.

The last time we lost at home to Keighley Jimmy Thompson could still perm his hair.

Well played Fev; Now that the tinkering has stopped the team spirit is showing cos players are finding out each others capabilities; Some of the handling tonight was top drawer; Keighley also played some bright football; Enjoyed the game;

Agreed OR ellis was just too fast for them down the slope in the first half during his first spell and they couldnt cope, so glad to see all the backs get a lot of ball and run it in well, thought our defence was outstanding as well, keighleys tries were well worked moves rather than a missed tackle or defensive blunder

Keighley played decent as well - they normally roll over and die at our place but not last night also brought a few fans for a change who gave decent banter behind the posts

Had a chat with John Bastian on saturday with fatha. I have to say he is a right bloke. This was at the under 20s game. You rarely get a coach coming down to sit on terracing with thee.

Back him and the lads all the way. Lets not do a manchester united move until we definately know he is no good for fev.

Up the rovers!

You can only judge a person on what you experience first hand, so well said.

Having said this, just before my mam became a midwife she was a nurse at Ponte Hospital.
'Oh I've been working with a wonderful Junior Doctor' she told my dad.

About 30 years later that Junior Doctor became the most notorious Doctor in Britain if not all the world.

She got that one wrong.
