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.
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.?
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.
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.
Robin, we knew JB was a young untried coach. the idea was he would learn as he went along, and he would have to do it it quickly. some of us accepted that this would mean losing games along the way. but as soon as the losing games came along, some supporters wanted his head on a stick, spouting on about this team winning the league for the last 4 seasons, except itwasn't this team that won those 4 league titles, it was a new one. would things have improved if he had been given a longer run, i don't know. but we got shut cos it was vital to finish in the top 2. now all of a sudden we are asked to write this season off, and judge AH on next season. it's a funny old world.
