People are yelling to get a settled team... play what AH think is his best team....
Irwin and Ellis would both be my preferred option. Hooker is such a pivotal position that giving a youngster "game time" is a luxury we don't have anymore.... too much of a gamble.

Robin mate, we played him in the grand final last year and he was a standout. on friday i thought we were let down by some of our most experienced players. for me Irwins not the finished article, we're getting scoot, scoot, scoot, whether it's on or not. it worked at dews but not against broncos

I'm wasted. Gentlemen ( and ladies ) we have the lyrics. Taxi you can thank me later but you have your song.

You heard it here first. ( sung to the Goodies )

Fuuuiiiiiii Fui Moi Moi

Tonga is where he comes from

Leigh is where he's travelled to

Moi Moi's gonna run right over you

Moi Moi's gonna run right over you, you, you, you.

He ain't no acrobat

But he'll put you flat on your back

You'll wish he'd stayed in the pack

Fui Fui Fui Fui

Fuuuiiiiiii Fui Fui Moi Moooiiiiiiiii

and the song for next season, where's your moimoi gone, where'syour moimoi gone. to the tune of chirpy chirpy cheep cheep




#3088635 Is this what Schoey meant!

Rumour has it that Fev will have 8 players who will be "Guesting" for them this weekend, that is players not contracted to them full time, they being either season long loans or DR players that make up this number. I do not know whether this information is correct but if it is it took my mind back to July last year when I read Garry Schofield's comments/thoughts on the new structure, to quote

"And dual-registration is a concept that has cheapened some of the lower-division clubs, like Swinton, who seem to have lost their identity in the last couple of years.

If all professional clubs now are to have a clear pathway to the top, then they need to be able to stand on their own feet and prove that they can cope without charity"

Very wise words from someone who gets castigated more often than not for his comments, has its been speculated before if Fev or any other team make the top four by adopting this method what happens come the end of the season play offs if they meet in the league structure with the parent club, will the parent club allow these guests to play in those games against them, I doubt it, but then allow them to play in games against the other teams thereby both weakening and strengthening a opposing team to their own advantage?

Considering that the 8 is a league structure, in the event of equal points gained in the league placings will points difference come into the equation and be a telling factor in the final mix?

This "new era" is the RL's baby, but they do not seem to have thought things through, they need to be addressing these conflicts very soon, or the Keighley/ Batley scenario we had last season will be very small in comparison to the shockwaves this could bring.

Andy Hay has named his squad. 1 dr player from wakey. the leeds players you refer to have actually been signed on by us and are Featherstone players. 3 have been named in the 19, the other is injured. i think most Fev fans would rather there was no dr.

Rowley is playing mind games. he's been without Higson for a couple of games already. he has moi moi and Goulden back. his side may be stronger than last Sunday.

#3066356 Typical BBC bias!

#3064621 season ticket

Posted by oldrover on 01 February 2015 - 06:47 PM

I'm not knocking buying a season ticket all I'm saying is that there is no value for money to loyal supporters purchasing them due to offers for people not purchasing them and this is wrong.Queing up at the club shop and handing over 100 pounds each would help the club out but nobody does this for the simple reason we want value for money for spending our hard earned money early doors.

thank god the volunteers don't have that outlook




#3062668 moore

Posted by oldrover on 29 January 2015 - 11:46 AM

i think Moore is ok, but i don't think he's ever looked comfortable at Fev. if he's not settled in by now, then perhaps we're not the club for him. we will see.
