Sheffield v Fev, Dewsbury v Leigh, look tasty 

 

Sheffield seem to have found some form and Fev will be hurting and with a new coach. A tight pitch and rain will make that anybody's game

 

Dewsbury have some big scalps on their tight uneven pitch, again the weather will be a leveller and I feel whoever adapts quickest will take the honours here

It would appear to be steep. He took two witness with him to back up his side of it.

I dont know the full facts. It would be interesting to find out the full facts.

The officials are probably sick of him, every game he's at the refs constantly, moaning and whinging. Only player I have ever seen take a proper dive with a scream in an RL match too, which had the crowd in stitches.

Off to the Shay on Sunday for Halifax v NW Crusaders and a pint or 2 in the 3 Pigeons!!  Lets hope the Cru are back up off the canvas after last weeks pummelling and we get the form they showed in Whitehaven.

I'm hoping to get to the game tomorrow, work commitments permitting and maybe even early enough to have a couple of libations in the Three Pigs.

With only 4 points separating 5th. from 12th., the race for SL2 could be very interesting. Pleasantly suprised at the Crusaders' result - after last week I was slightly dreading what might happen - held Halifax out for the last half hour as well :good:

Disappointing game for Rochdale today with Workington running out 10-6 winners. Scoreline flattered Hornets as Workington dominated for long stretches. Their defence smothered Rochdale who struggled to make metres all afternoon. They only managed to threaten at the end of each half but defended their own line stoutly for the first 40. Particularly impressive as they repelled three (could have been 4) dropouts in a row. Pressure told eventually with Town scoring twice wide on the left after the break. Late consolation from Hornets as Workington's fullback, who was immaculate other than this effort, spilled a bomb under a lot of pressure from English who scored beneath the sticks. I believe he was one of the Wigan DR players, anyone know he was, missed the teams being read out.

 

First poor result for a good few weeks though so hopefully Rochdale keep their heads up for a tough one against a rebounding Halifax next week. Today's results show anyone can beat anyone in this league with maybe the exception of Leigh so here's hoping for a return to winning ways in a week's time.

With regards to the Paul March incident, I spoke to the club officials at the match yesterday and two interesting points were made.

1). At the end of the match, the match officials had conflicting stories. At the tribunal, all the stories were in line. When questioned about this they wouldn't comment.

2). The comments attributed to March actually came from a fan. The fan came forward and admitted this and offered to appear at red hall. An independent witness also came forward to confirm what the fan said. Both statements were discounted by the tribunal.

Whether it's intransigence, or they are determined to send out a severe message to all those SL coaches and directors who have been slating officials and the rfl of late I don't know, but it seems like past reputation makes you guilty until ............ assumed guilty.

Maybe if Paul March kept his opinions to himself he wouldn't get banned.
