iirc we had a player who played wearing an ankle tag because he broke the law. nothing said about that. afaik working during a strike does not make you a lawbreaker so what's the problem. all the hall of famers were great rugby players who did great things for Featherstone Rovers and that's all that matters

when msn says we, he is not speaking for me, and Batley is a smashing club and i am not alone in thinking that. what you have achieved with your ground whilst maintaining your status on the field is to be envied. good luck

Reynolds I'm sure played a couple of times on telly for Cas , and to say he was underwhelming would be extremely kind

i'll admit i wasn't at my best, but i didn't train all week due to my arthritis

For goodness sake, are we clutching at straws or what?. Carvell has not been punching his weight this year. Lets have some young, enthusiastic lads on the park. I can put up with the occasional mistake if they are at least playing for the shirt. Dare bet that there are amateurs in area teams who would not be disgraced on the field.

Now the dust has settled somewhat we know who are the opposition for Next Season in our bid to reach SL. The first requirement is reaching the top four. The main opposition is: London, Bradford and Leigh. There is going to be one almighty scramble for that fourth place. Do you think our recruitment so far is good enough to face this opposition? If not where do we need strengthening and where is that to come from. Finally have we enough brass to do it.. I still feel our finances are open to question, do you?

Colin mate, you seem determined to get a debate going about our finances, when none of us knows what our financial situation is. if it's anything like our house, only Campbells wife will know
