In Topic: James Lowes to be announced as new Bradford Bulls coach....

Well at least the Bradford fans now have the consolation in knowing that even if Cummins had been sacked at Easter it wouldn't have helped anything.

While I've no doubt that FC is a fine bloke, it has been apparent for some weeks that Bradford have been badly underperforming. Their 1st choice 17 looks mid-table on paper (I accept that they haven't all been available), so to be 2nd bottom, even without the 6 point deduction, is nowhere near good enough. 

Bradford should have bitten the bullet weeks ago. I suspect it was only the debt they owed FC after the way he kept going during the turmoil that stayed their hand, but sadly it's now almost certainly too late to save their SL spot.


I think John Kear still has something to offer.

In Topic: Stefan Ratchford at centre for England?

No. Shenton's been far better than Ratchford this season anyway, so if there's a centre spot going it should be his.

I've been impressed. Shows a lot of confidence for a rookie, and hasn't looked at all out of place in a good side.

If only he didn't look so much like Sean Connery.

With 3 games in 9 days, and with 5 teams going down this year, it was a no-brainer for Keighley. If things were different I'm sure they'd have put out a full strength team, but on this occasion they did what was best. We have to recognise that this was an exceptional set of circumstances.

I watched the whole game, and after a terrible start they went OK, and it was quite entertaining.I wasn't at HKR v Cas last week but it doesn't look like that was any more competitive.
