There is no doubt that Leigh have a good team but on paper it is nowhere near as good as the Leigh fans would have you believe. It worked out well for them last season with the fact that Fev, Fax, and Sheffield were all the worst they had been for a number of years. For mine if it were to be one full time team missing out on the top 3 I reckon it will be Leigh and that could be a disaster for them.

preseason i know, but Leigh are looking very good

And it's never worked Wakefield is Wakefield and the 5 towns are the 5 towns and you'll get arguements on both sides about WMDC but you'll find we both wish we had seperate councils representing us instead of this fake made up conurbation

as someone who can remember the urban district council and rural district council, i would have that system back in an instant

but couldn't that scenario happen whatever the circumstances of the Tigers getting new stadium were?

 

In one breath they are being(legitimately) criticised for playing in a sh it hole, in the next breath they are being criticised because the possibility of their moving out of it doesn't suit their neighbours, or might not suit their neighbours.

 

When it comes down to it I wouldn't bet against the mendahose jungle being upgraded. But ultimately I think and hope some radical thinking about what the wmdc area needs in terms of professional rugby league. What it has goes nowhere near to matching its potential.

but why are they playing in a sh   i   thole. if they had gone about upgrading their stadium 20 years ago, a little at a time, they could possibly be sitting in a perfectly good stadium on wheldon road now. instead McGoldrick, Sherwin etc are doing very nicely thank you

Isn't the sale of the Wheldon Road site in the mix somewhere with regard to raising funds toward the new stadium?

i think the stand is a listed building. it's leaning toward the 1920s.
