Surprised they haven't been much publicity from the club or the forum on Glen's new contract extension until end of 2017.
Think the deal is a good one for both the club and coach as I'm sure that if team is going well,super league clubs and one or two championship clubs will be keeping a close look on his progress.
Agreed!!! I carefully plan my holidays around the fixture list ..... seems to negate the point of the advanced fixture list ... or are they just guidelines!!! Weather I accept ... crisis I accept ... but Sheffield!!!! ....come on they seem to have their own rule book!!
i wonder If i have a claim against them somehow !! .... well through there actions I am denied the rights of my season ticket...
Has there been a reason given for the switch?
As yet on official reason for the changed of dates,but more then likely it will be put down to unavailability of Sheffield's venue over the Easter period.I know people make plans to go away at Easter,but this year the change of date has worked out better for me.Two home games under the lights is fine by me.
Things have been a little quiet on any news coming out of the club recently,especially with the season round the corner.
Heard the same thing from a ex sponsor, or and owing money to some ex players. We've got 50k for Thackeray heard it from a club official. Seems a shame that they won't be running a reserve side next year they seem to be paying certain players top dollar then making rest of the team up with Leeds Rhinos, when it suit's Leeds of course.
On the rfl website fixture's section we still have our reserves playing Fev on April 7 at home.Sad to see Fev going down this dangerous all or bust road,will be hard for a top 4 finish they will need to get extra money.Spend within your means sounds like good advice for 2016,Happy New Year.
Can't they just sneak in at half time like in "the good old days"?
Done that once or twice at the old ground when I was younger.I've decided we are all going to the South Stand for the London game,if we enjoy the experience might end up getting our season tickets for 2016 there instead of the North Stand.
I like to read the "my Yorkshire" article in the Yorkshire Post Magazine. This weeks interview was with Martyn Sadler of Rugby League Express and Rugby League World. One of the questions is "If you had to name your Yorkshire hidden gem, what would it be?". He asked for two. Given that we are prone to beat ourselves up on this forum I thought it would be good to quote his second choice:- "And Mount Pleasant, the home of Batley RLFC, which everyone should visit at least once. Opened in 1880, and with a famous slope, the improvements made under current Batley Chairman Kevin Nicholas are outstanding for a club with such limited resources. It is now known as Fox's Biscuits Stadium, after its sponsor".
It was really nice to see this piece of free publicity and praise for the Mount.
I await the witty retorts from our friends "over the hill"!
No witty retorts,just to say the ground is something every Bulldogs fan should be proud of,especially of the heritage of the past.
Think folk miss the point of farrell's development
Potential has to be nurtured
Not just thrown in at the deep end
Which long term can be counter productive
He's our weapon of mass destruction... So why waste a tactical weapon on every battle you have
You don't,you save that weapon until it is recharged and chomping at the bit ready to go
The world has become all here and now...
Whiskey will be matured in a week,champagne in a day
And a future rugby league star over night
I think not
Absolutely correct,Farrell is going to be a super league player of the future,things happen when he plays,i will go as far and say he will be our stand out player on Sunday,even if he doesn't start.He loves playing against the doggies.
