#3001335 can Jack Lee win on sunday

Posted by Shadow45 on 23 September 2014 - 05:25 PM

a win for York and the Hunslet fans won't be happy, a win for Hunslet leaves him open to allegations of not trying from York fans. is this fair on the lad.


Easy answer to the question would be not to play the lad. Play Brinning and Carter. It seems like Hunslets early press release that they'd signed Lee has had the desired effect.

#3000118 Oldham at home Sunday

can't wait for George Stokes to get to "laying on" and "offside", in his rule book, then we may see a decent game from him.


York should have been smart enough to play to his standards, you could tell from the first 5 minutes how he was going to referee the game

#2999979 Revenge at York?

Posted by Shadow45 on 21 September 2014 - 04:11 PM

The game that really matters is now on. Should be some good banter this week now. Have we got what it takes to avenge the 40 nil defeat?


If the Knights play the way the did today then you have every chance of progressing through to the final at your owners ground  :onthequiet:

Apparently next year 1st & 2nd play off, winner gets promoted. Loser then plays off with 3rd, 4th & 5th ???


Should be kept simple, Champions go up then however many teams the RL want involved in the play offs, play off for the second promotion place

#2997368 fair

We only need to beat you once





Hopefully "sods law" will not come into play should both teams be fortunate enough to make the Play Off Final

#2996774 fair

Funny that's there's no mention of the fact that York finished 13 points behind us (Oldham) in the league in 2010, when you went on to beat us in the final. Was that fair? We at Oldham tend to accept these "so called" injustices as just one of those things.


Did you finish top of the league that year?


For all the rights and wrongs of this season, I believe that the team that finishes top should be promoted. The play offs were brought in so that more teams had more to play for through out the season, which in my opinion is a good idea

I wore a suit once.

#2855839 Muslims refuse to sell alcohol and pork at M&S. Yay or Nay?

Posted by Shadow45 on 23 December 2013 - 11:30 AM

I work for said retailer and there's not been any briefing or discussion on said "story". We have numerous different areas where people can work and not come into any contact with pork or alcohol products. To me it seems a quiet news day has been brightened by this "outrageous" rule.

#2780827 How many more are we going to be seeing in the coming weeks?

Posted by Shadow45 on 02 September 2013 - 08:39 PM

The first of many :-)

Personally I would like to see the majority of James Ford's team kept together next season. They are still a very young team remember, they were signed as an U19's team and bumped up to U20's at such short notice, and look how well they coped. Another season together would do them wonders I think.


We need to build the team around Ben Johnston. If we can keep him, he'll tear up Championship One next year.


I'd love to see a team like this line up next season...












Ed Smith









If we can keep a first team that looks something like that and promote the best U20's more conservatively, we'll be laughing. I live in hope!



Could we for once have some big lads in the pack?

Don't want this to sound rude, but a genuine question. What does £13,892 get you at this level of rugby league?


About 95% of a Simon Brown?
