#2991896 pleasure

Posted by oldrover on 09 September 2014 - 09:50 PM

regardless of how the playoffs go, can i just say what a pleasure it's been watching York City Knights this season.it has meant me missing a lot of fev games, but the entertainment has been great. my hope now, is that both teams reach their grand finals

#2980897 heads screwed on

Posted by oldrover on 21 August 2014 - 10:47 AM

i don't like the way a lot of people are talking as if second place is ours after beating fax. i hope AH is keeping the squads mind on the job. 2 tricky fixtures coming up.

#2980869 Hunslet away Sunday

Posted by oldrover on 21 August 2014 - 09:49 AM

really pleased for Ryan Backhouse. strong runner, still got a bit of pace from his days in the centre. nice lad too. as a fev fan, i was sorry to see Colton Roache being released without being given a chance. fevs loss is yorks gain.

#2979970 professional

Posted by oldrover on 19 August 2014 - 12:28 PM

be professional. take nothing for granted. keep your heads screwed on and get the win against Skolars. 10 in a row, make history lads.

#2978828 Hunslet away Sunday

Posted by oldrover on 17 August 2014 - 04:16 PM

it's an 80 minute game as they say, well done York

#2977682 Hunslet at it again

Posted by oldrover on 15 August 2014 - 01:15 PM

I,ll swear when York played us at home earlier in the season they had a centre who won them the match, who was the spittin image of Jake Webster...

that's correct, and they were pressured by castleford to play him.

#2977561 promotion and relegation

Posted by oldrover on 15 August 2014 - 09:37 AM

i think it's great that p&r have been reintroduced, but, i have been watching champ 1 quite a lot this season, and as the playoffs approach there are indications of panic at some clubs. when York played Gateshead last week, gateshead included  3 superleague players from Hull kr on dual reg. 3 players that played for Hull kr last sunday played for kr against wigan last night. this sunday sees what is probably a title decider between Hunslet and York. Hunslet have signed 3 players on this week for their promotion push. as things stand, as long as they remain under the cap, they are well within their rights. i just hope this does not spiral out of control where cubs feel the need to overspend to compete.in the playoffs. will the rfl be monitoring the situation.?

#2977540 Hunslet at it again

Posted by oldrover on 15 August 2014 - 08:58 AM

if the York pack perform like they have these last few weeks they will get on top. 3 of gateshead superleague players that played on sunday, played for hull kr against wigan last night.

#2976341 Hunslet at it again

Posted by oldrover on 13 August 2014 - 09:21 AM

Yep - leave em to it mate - would rather have a settled group of players who have mostly been together for months now at this crucial time of the season - as GT said with Gateshead, we should take it as a compliment that teams feel they need to bring in SL players etc - just hope injuries & other stuff don't c*ck things up for us on Sunday

i think york will win this under the duckworth lose method.

#2968105 RL Express Cream of the Championship Crop

Posted by oldrover on 30 July 2014 - 01:54 PM

why is it a shame for bradford. they're in a mess of their own making. why is jimmy lowes squealing like a stuck pig. he knew what the situation was before he took the job. shut up and get on with it same as everybody else has to.

#2967671 Next Season

Posted by oldrover on 29 July 2014 - 05:45 PM

getting into superleague will not be easy, nor should it be. we have to raise our standards, not ask superleague to lower theirs.
