#3151905 DEBATE: Justin Carney for England?

Posted by Viking Warrior on 03 July 2015 - 03:27 PM

Nationality aside he isn't good enough which pretty much ends the debate. If he was English he would be behind Hall, Burgess, Charnley, Burgess, Briscoe and Lineham in terms of natural ability.



and tommy makinson and jermaine mcgilvray

#3113188 Salford apply to RFL to have this Friday's game postponed (merged threads)

Are you sure that 'nearly all' serious incidents are missed? What are the figures?



But only for televised games. Even then it's no guarantee of accuracy, as we've seen with some video refereeing decisions over the past few years.



Salford started the season with a named first team squad of 30 players, which was pretty standard for SL. Forrest Gump was released to join Leigh, and it appears Tony Puletua is in some form of dispute with the club, leaving 28. Currently, 2 of these (Jon Ford and Brad England) are on loan and, by RFL rules, it seems they can't be recalled (I don't know how the loan system works, but this appears to be the reason for their unavailability), leaving 26. Of these, 3 are suspended, but if there were no other absentees they'd still have a squad of 23 to choose from. However, 12 of the 26 are injured (the 13th injured player is loanee Wayne Godwin) leaving just 14 (counting the suspended players as available) which, clearly, is not enough to make up a full squad. So, while the suspensions have exacerbated the situation, they haven't really caused it. If the 3 weren't suspended, Salford still wouldn't have enough players to make a team. Ergo, injuries are the reason Salford are struggling to field a team. Suspensions (and the vagaries of the loan system) play a much smaller part.



so why not do what widnes have done this season and give the youngsters a chance?

#3108668 19 Apr: Widnes Vikings v Castleford Tigers KO 3pm

Posted by Viking Warrior on 19 April 2015 - 06:48 PM

widnes were missing, mellor, flynn, tickle and cahill so that balances out the castleford absentees, kevin brown was on another level from everyone else on the pitch (hanbury apart) but fantastic to see local products gilmore, owens and gerrard all excel 

#3099616 Catalan need to play more Frenchmen

Posted by Viking Warrior on 03 April 2015 - 11:57 AM

if we had kept licensing then catalans would have been able to field more french players, as it is now teams willl now look for the quick fix and load with antipodeans

#3099380 2/3 Apr: The Super League Match Thread (Easter Part One)

Posted by Viking Warrior on 02 April 2015 - 09:57 PM

Eddie is carrying on like someone's thrown a grenade on the pitch!.. And not a can with smoke in it (and judging by the TV pics, a can with very little smoke in it). Naturally it's the worst thing in the world that this has happened. Retirement can't come quick enough for him.

Glad the numpty responsible got slung out though.



mate it was a smoke bomb and the majority of wire fans pointed out the imbeciles who threw it, quite rightly people are appalled none more so than the wire fans in the stadium

Huddersfield - fine.

Wakefield - got through a public inquiry for a new stadium.

Castleford - got planning permission, deferred until after the election.

Hull KR - making lots of improvements.

Hull FC - fine.

Leeds - fine, with sustainable improvements in the pipeline.

Bradford - Iconic.


Yorkshire clubs may still have a bit to go, but they're trying.



is iconic yorkshire dialect for a dump

shame that clubs east of the pennines never grasped the opportunity to redevelop/build new grounds like the lancashire clubs did, now that nigel has done away with licensingclubs are once again piling money into the first teams as opposed to the infrastructure
