Just been mentioned on local radio that Carvell has been signed as a player and assistant coach to Andy Hay.

Try Elland Road, just around the corner. They have played there before 54,000 against Leeds as I recall and in Division two.

Sadly Hunslet can no longer be considered Leeds' "local rivals". Two generations have grown up with Hunslet being the poor relation and with no matches against each other. No longer is there a real rivalry between North and South of the river.

I suspect kids from Hunslet, Belle Isle, Middleton and Beeston gravitate towards Headingley nowadays. Hunslet being in SL would hardly change that imbalance.

If such a match were to draw a 20,000 crowd, then 18,000 would be Leeds fans. As sad as it may be Keighley, today Leeds fans consider Bradford as the big grudge match.

If Hunslet were a SL club there would be two derbies per season pulling in 20,000 plus to add the the current 'big' games schedule. Even Leeds would like the extra revenue.

The South Leeds Stadium doesn't hold 20,000. ;)

This nomadic existence is surely not a good thing for wasps. The team is meant to represent the area they play in. They are testing their fans loyalty.

I doubt the owner's are bothered about existing Wasps fans as long as they can replace them with Coventry locals.

Why oh why would Fev let Worthington go if that's what he can do?

Said the same thing when the transfer was announced. A lot of Fev fans didn't seem to rate him too highly for some reason.

Excellent attacker, defends well above his weight. Leigh have a good 'un there.
