#3181020 22 Aug: Middle 8s - Leigh Centurions v Wakefield Trinity Wildcats KO 3pm (TV)

Posted by amm on 23 August 2015 - 06:43 AM

I like to think that I'm not an 'obnoxious' 'arrogant' ''grub' 'thug' Leigh fan


I think the best team won, although I believe we were both flummoxed by some random officiating. I felt straight away that Haggerty should have been sin binned if not worse. The indiscipline aggravates me, but more the lack of nous that we have at times, which is giving Paul Rowley plenty to work with in after match reviewing. When I say indiscipline, I am referring to basic errors in play, not just the things that may end up at the disciplinary panel. Both teams had some of that, us more so maybe, but with the officiating being poor, it was not being controlled and stamped out early doors - no excuse, just an observation. I never thought we'd win against any of the SL clubs and it'll be hard against the CH clubs who are all going to up their game against us, so que sera sera....if they are good games to watch and the lads give their all, I will be happy - believe it or not, that's all I watch rugby league for, good teams up against each other, entertaining me.


I would prefer we were admired for our good rugby, and agree that it does seem to be 'fashionable' to slate Leigh before we've even KO most of the time. Diddums you may say, but some of the comments about fans and players, and the club, have had me nearly crying this season. The vitriolic language used is just plain nasty at times....maybe you believe one or two fans or club representatives have brought this upon us...I have shook my own head at times, but please, do not tar us all with the same brush. My family and the vast majority of fans are good decent people and support rugby league, not just the Leigh club.


Well done Wakefield, cracking away support and may the best 4 go or stay up.

I wish I had £20k to potentially throw away - good luck to whoever it is


It promises to be a great match.. We have family round for curry & rugby, and I'm looking forward to the usual 'get in!!',  'you've got to be joking', 'how did he just do that',  'they were all offside then' , 'could go either way this' , and the inevitable father/son discussions on plays, hitting rewind at every opportunity.


I like watching both teams, so may the best team win

#3168167 Super 8s fixtures announced

Posted by amm on 30 July 2015 - 09:36 PM

People do know that all the clubs agree and arrange these fixtures don't they?


And please don't say Leigh fans as if we are robots. There's a snap shot view of a handful of fans of any club, on any SM platform, and as in life, he who shouts loudest....


I don't know if other SL clubs have any preferences, they probably do, but I have to trust that sound minded adults have come together and agreed the best fit for the fixtures possible, and that the RFL has made sure that it is fair and actually works, before announcing the clubs wishes.


The only doubts I have about Leigh, or any actual promotion is just a nagging doubt, paranoia, that it'll actually ever happen. Surely some rule will be found, some operating license problem....and that's all it is..the jitters. And all the CH clubs have one hell of a battle before we even get to the bashing of officials, that mysterious body the RFL, the clubs, players etc etc


We appear at times to love the doing all of the negative things more than the actual game we ran to get the to the best spot to watch as kids. It's a shame we all get older and find out about all the backroom politics of TGG. When I see my nephew & nieces kids getting so excited ( 3 - 14) it warms my heart, it would be nice but naive to think they will always just enjoy going, and not get as cynical as we do.

I wish none of the  qualifier 8's were on TV  - commentary team - VR influence (either get shut or have it at all games please) - lower crowds. But at the same time I wish they all were -intensity - top drawer rugby league
Glad all Leigh's matches are Sat & Sun, hope everyones games are injury free and with the squad we have, and team spirit, it'll be a very hard from minute one, but don't forget, all the oppo are thinking just the same. Whatever our lads can achieve I will always be a LTID . Hull KR after a CC semi, Salford after Wakey's give em a pummelling, Wakey after Bulls and Salford have given them real tests...and so on.
If we don't get any further than where we are today, it won't be for want of trying, and that's all I want, good entertaining Rugby League, with every lad who puts the shirt on doing it with pride.

hello !!! My husband and I are so glad we met, via here, and even though many of you who knew Lee before me tried to shall we say, protect me being a delicate Lancashire rose, from his stereotypical Yorkshire man image.....shhhh don't tell anyone, but I found I brought out a different side to him ;) ;)


Joking aside, I am so happy and really proud to now say that my name is Mrs Lee Mannifield 


There are a couple of photos in The Photography thread, and if you know me personally and are on FB, or twitter, you'll have seen lots of others too.
