#3263454 Leigh Coach Quits

Posted by thundergaz on 28 January 2016 - 01:34 PM

Kinda what I were saying.

Yeah mate not saying fax are not any good etc because they were last season. But as we all know you need a Beaumont koukash type of person to get into SL.

#3263294 Leeds Rhinos Stadium Development

Posted by thundergaz on 28 January 2016 - 10:49 AM

Very witty. Oh, wait a minute. No it's not.Your carer needs to up their game.

Terry it's because saints didn't win anything last season their still a bit bitter that you won everything lol. On the stadium I think it will look great if the pictures are anything to go by. Never understood any club being mocked for upgrading their stadiums how ever big or little the improvements are at least their doing something to improve the match day experience for all supporters.

ok gaz. I know you are giving your honest opinion but let's see what the lad can do THIS season around new team mates.

Yep couldn't agree more mate. Turn over a new leaf and all that. Watch him now he will be playing for Wigan this time next year lol.

#3211539 New Centre signs

Posted by thundergaz on 10 October 2015 - 08:45 AM

What do you want me to say? He should be playing in SL? Challenging Watkins for the best English centre?

There is a reason he is playing at this level, FWIW I was disapointed we got rid because I think he would have done well under Marshall. For a centre he puts in some very big hits which are good to watch, in attack he can seem a litle lost at times. Obviously that can be worked on and there is no reason he cant go on to be a good centre at this level.

Theres realism and there is BS, if he were that good he would have gone to a top 4 team but imo Batley have made some shrewd signings and once again will be tough to beat and I certainly think you could get amongst the group of London, Fev, and Dewsbury.

You forgot to add fax and Sheffield to that little cluster.There will be at least 5 teams fighting for 2 places next season I would of thought but who knows. But I certainly don't think fax and the Eagles will be shoe ins for the top 4 and maybe even the Bulls might dip a little all to play for I would say but until the season starts its anyone's guess what will happen.

#3200093 Fev v Town

Posted by thundergaz on 25 September 2015 - 10:45 AM

Or a joint reserves team with Wigan ....

You want to keep well away from a link up/DR with a SL club they don't care about anything than themselves as hunslet/Leeds DR will show this season. Because If Leeds cared ( maybe cared is a too strong word but you know what I mean) about hunslet I'm sure they would of sent them good players to help them stay up but they didn't.I just wish the link ups would work but on what I've seen they don't.

#3200065 Fev v Town

Posted by thundergaz on 25 September 2015 - 10:21 AM

Unfortunately with Town down to the bare bones Even the most optimistic Townies will probably go with Fev.
Rumour is the 4 subs are David M, Keith T, bomber is god and unicorn 106 for his kicking ability.

That's us stuffed then terry. I've heard Keith is the mastermind and architect. David is the playmaker and bomber is God is the powerful prop lol. Summut won't get a look in I bet he's in the reserves this week with those above being fit and available lol.

#3199277 Leigh to ignore Salary Cap

Posted by thundergaz on 24 September 2015 - 08:30 AM

No need to be defensive Craig. Other clubs have directors close the gap so Leigh should be able to do so as long as Beaumont doesn't put Leigh in debt - I assume he's not doing that?? Is he??

Rowley called for the salary cap shortfall to be reduced on TV Monday no doubt to pressurise the RFL. Blake Solly said that SKY wanted the middle 8's for the "interest" value, so I see no valid reason to restrict Leigh's competitiveness even short term.

Solly makes no sense on his reluctance to allow extra private free money to be allowed to use to even the competition. He'll have a reason, but I'm yet to hear it unless he can't say because it could be RFL would rather Leigh not block a Bulls return to SL?

The championship is boring/lopsided as it is with this new system without upping the salary cap for the championship. Upping the salary cap would kill off teams like Workington haven batley etc (which at present it isn't doing clubs like those any favours) because fans of those clubs are not going to turn up watching their teams spend say 250k cap against clubs like Leigh spending 1.8m caps etc the comp would be pointless IMO. Which it's getting to that point as it is as before the season starts you currently have a good idea where each team will finish in the table as it is.And I know your going to counter act that with so town haven etc should hold Leigh back for their own sake? The answer is yes because most of SL have been holding Leeds saints and Wigan back for years from spending what they would like. It's all about the comp not about one team like it was when Wigan dominated not so long ago.

#3199042 Bradford carry last hope of SL entry

Posted by thundergaz on 23 September 2015 - 06:25 PM

Hey up someone's woke up. Read the conversation before typing. We were speaking about the league in general. But yes Grumps it's the same Doncaster that only won one game in regular league. Same Doncaster who are going down on 4 points - that the same Doncaster?

As for us. We've beat every team in our eights at least once, then we've got Fev twice, Batley three times, Donny twice, Workington twice, London three times, Hunslet twice. Not bad going, surely next stop is trying to bridge the gap between us and the top four? We're too good for the bottom eights I truly believe.

Nobody is too good for the bottom 8s IMO if your in the bottom 8s your in it for a reason and that's because your not good enough to be in the middle 8s that season.Fev finished the regular season 5th so on that basis they are the best of the bottom 8s but not good enough to be in the middle 8s but I wouldn't say fev are the best of the bottom 8s by any means. Any of the bottom 8 teams could beat each other on any given day. Apart from Doncaster the rest have been very competitive this season IMO.

#3196466 19 Sept: Qualifiers - Wakefield Trinity Wildcats v Halifax KO 8pm

Posted by thundergaz on 19 September 2015 - 07:13 PM

It was 8pm here! ;)

Lol tony next time I see the kick off time on a thread I will wait until an hour an half after that time next time before I put the result up lol.

#3196367 19 Sept: Qualifiers - Leigh Centurions v Bradford Bulls KO 3pm (TV)

Posted by thundergaz on 19 September 2015 - 04:56 PM

Rowley as been found out in these 8s in my opinion and how much does ridyard bring to the Leigh team he was missed big style today. Brierley and Reynolds were clueless for large parts of today's game.

#3192801 13 Sept: Qualifiers - Halifax v Leigh Centurions KO 3pm

Posted by thundergaz on 13 September 2015 - 05:46 PM

Lol lol lol lol I nearly fell off my chair with laughter when I looked at the score. Great result fax well done.I know I shouldn't laugh but it's great when the underdogs win.

#3181273 23 Aug: Middle 8s - Bradford Bulls v Salford Red Devils KO 3pm

Posted by thundergaz on 23 August 2015 - 03:48 PM

Does that mean we'll stop having to read that Fev fan's constant prediction/hoping of no Championship teams beating a SL side each and every week?

No chance it's a rubbish system and no one will ever go up unless a SL club goes belly up lol.On a serious note well played Bulls I'm over the moon for you fans and club.

#3178436 TOWN v Fev

Posted by thundergaz on 18 August 2015 - 07:32 AM

Looking at our last 2 attendances in the bottom 8s I wouldn't be expecting many fev fans to travel to your place from us if I'm being honest.
