Apparently the coach gave an interview on Salford radio today. Anyone tune in and did he say anything of note?

Someone asked why the team had changed so much for the Workington game after the good win at Barrow.Duffys response was that Warrington had recalled O'Brien and Leigh had recalled their contingent .

Yes I listened and he gave a good account of himself, very complimentary to Ian Watson and keen to integrate with the schools and colleges in the area.

Correct. This could have been confirmed sooner.
I thought we were to be kept informed by the club rather than just find out. That didnt last long!

Pathetic of a so called professional club to act in a spiteful manner. I'm sure the players are thrilled to no longer be playing regularly anymore. I just don't get some peoples attitudes.

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

There was no suggestion on the interview that anything had been done underhand just that Leigh had recalled them.

Curiouser and curiouser... At least aspinwall played today. And it looks like leigh are not having it all their own way at the moment, (though managing to keep winning).

What more can the club tell you other than they were recalled by Leigh.

In response to speculation that the Leigh playets had been recalled, Marshy confirmed on this forum on 30 June that Leigh were entitled to do that.

Which didnt exactly answer the question Steve, nor was is correct in the case of minimum loan periods ie Steve Maden.

As I said at the time, I simply wanted to know if Paul Rowley had taken his ball in?

Maybe one of those questions which you will have to ask Paul directly I am afraid - we would be only guessing the reason just like you. Once the players were recalled we had to focus on the team we had available and very quickly had to forget Leigh players.

Rest assured we do not plan to be in that position again!

Regards,

John

But is it a disaster ?
In my mind we were always at risk of relegation
The start of our season could not have been more chaotic
People wanted wattos head a long time ago
Then we win three
Then more chaos as watto leaves.
The sAme fans are aghast
Two games in Duffy should be sacked?
I see a pattern!
With the potential new investment we won't be down long.
One thing for certain... its never boring

Mark - I do understand all the points that are being made on the forum and I do not think anyone has been calling for Duffy's head. I am also sure that at present that Duffy and the board have the full support of the supporters and are all pulling for the same thing.

 

What does seem to have raised concerns is the rumours that have arisen and not quickly quelled by the club and that the feeling of openness brought to the club, which we all welcomed when the trust was appointed as directors, seems to be closing up at such an important time. 

 

I personally do not believe that this forum is the correct platform for "official" discussions/announcement/confirmations from the club but then I might just be out of date in the world of Twitter and the Dr Koukash (PR machine).

 

I was disappointed that Salford announced/leaked the news of Watto joining them but it would be even more worrying if that event forced Swinton's hands in making decisions.  I was also disappointed that we were not advised that Leigh had recalled their players on loan (and that they recalled them). Maybe we do not know why they were recalled but the facts of the recall could have been relayed on the official website.

 

And as for relying on your neighbours in the friendly game of Rugby League, I think you can bury that one as it contradicts the self interest of most clubs involved.

 

Everyman for himself ...sadly.

 

It is just information that people are crying out for and not the head of Duffy, and an area on which I believe the club can improve.
