I seem to have avoided the worst of the carnage with only Reynolds and Guerra in my team (assuming Isaac Luke is Ok to play on Monday) on the treatment table.

Have decided to bench Adam Reynolds until we know the extent of the injury. If it's not as bad as first feared and he's back in weeks rather than months I may hold him.

So this week my trades are Guerra to Bird and Randell to Thurston.

How does everybody play the bye rounds? Do I need to start offloading origin players or hold on as long as possible?

I couldn't tip a waiter this season. Thank God I'm not a professional gambler. :D

Consolation prize of another "nearest the total points" award. We all know this is where the real kudos is earned. ;)

#3092759 Rugby Union's rapidly decreasing try scoring, line breaks and general ent...

Posted by Railway End on 21 March 2015 - 05:55 PM

The answer has been under the Union authorities noses all the time!

Tell every team they have to win by 20 points and they look to run the ball and score tries. ;)

If you look at what most people who've shipped JT out have done guess what, they've brought in Reynolds.
The number doing so is pretty big too.


I suppose it's the obvious trade G. I had toyed with Reynolds before round 1 but was seduced by Thurstons averages from last year.

Having watched the way the Bunnies are moving the ball this year rather than relying heavily on the power games, I am anticipating Reynolds will have a lot more attacking involvement than last season.

At least that's what I'm telling myself. :D


#3089940 Will Rugby Union ever have any popularity in the north of England?

I know Wimbledon feels like it lasts 300 days...


Made even worse by a certain Mr Inverdale's smugness on our screens every night. :(


#3089853 Will Rugby Union ever have any popularity in the north of England?

Nail on the head D.

It's like Wimbledon fortnight. Apparently "tennis fans" flock to Wimbledon but very few could name a player outside the top 20 and have next to no interest in the sport for the other 50 days of the year.

They are "eventers" and comprise a large proportion of the spectators at international events. There is nothing wrong with this, and it is an area that Rugby League needs to improve on dramatically.


#3088742 Wales v Ireland

Posted by Railway End on 14 March 2015 - 05:25 PM

I saw 20 seconds worth but did hear the commentators saying "it's the best game of the tournament so far".


It probably was although there was little to beat. ;)

Keith Wood claiming that "it was as good a game of rugby (sic) as you could ever see!" was ridiculous. Do they really believe what they are saying or are they reading off a BBC script?


#3088723 Is this what Schoey meant!

Posted by Railway End on 14 March 2015 - 03:31 PM

If Featherstone have a squad of 31 players why do they need to use DR?


As a Fev fan I ask myself the same question.

Whilst it's good to see internationals like Pita Godinet play for Rovers it does nothing for the long term stability of the club. It strikes me as a panic measure to try and reach the middle 8's at all costs.

I am not privy to Fev's finances, but I worry that these kind of indicators point to us being in trouble if we don't make the top four this year.

After the Nahaboo debacle I am quite happy to see the club rebuild slowly and sustainabley over the next 3 or 4 years. We did it under Daryl Powell, why can't we tread the same path again?

Cue words like "intriguing", "delicately poised", and "tension filled" from Inverdale et al.

Fair play to the Union pundits though they certainly earn their money having to fill 15 minutes trying to analyse a lack of action on the pitch.

Player prices won't alter until R3.


I know G, but a few of my selected players didn't get the minutes I thought they would. If it stays the same I will need to offload before their value drops
