#3085377 Keighley game

Posted by Flaming balls on 08 March 2015 - 05:50 PM

It appeared to be a clash of heads with Josh Ward in a tackle. Credit to the physios from both sides who reacted immediately to the incident ensuring both lads were dealt with quickly, unfortunately Lee suffered the worst and I understand he has fairly serious cuts to the back of his head, some swelling of the neck and back pain.
Today we won well, but it seems unimportant and insignificant at this moment, all of our thoughts and hopes must be for Lee and a full and speedy recovery


Here, here...


#3074423 Gareth Hock

Posted by Flaming balls on 18 February 2015 - 08:27 PM

Gareth Hock has received a 6 match ban for using his knees in two separate incidents playing for Salford against St Helens. What a shame such a talented player puts in cheap shots designed to injure his oponents.


Could quite easily be the best player in the Super League....


#3065986 Sky Try -Sky Sports News

Posted by Flaming balls on 04 February 2015 - 07:06 AM

Sky are teaming up with the Rugby Football League to launch Sky Try, a new grassroots initiative.

The scheme's target is to get 100,000 more young people playing the game, in a seven-year plan designed to raise the sport's popularity around the country.

Nigel Wood, chief executive of Rugby Football League, told Sky Sports News HQ: "It's a programme of engagement for young people to get involved in rugby league across coaching and playing.

"We know that most people come to our sport under the age of 12 and that is an area where we have to put in some considerable investment. Thanks to our association with Sky Sports, Sky Try is going to be a wonderful initiative.

"Everybody who wants to get involved - from the five-year-olds to adults - is welcome to participate. Hopefully it can do for our sport what Sky Ride has done for cycling.

"The age when most people are playing rugby league is 14 so we have to work really hard to retain them beyond that age. We must tailor our product and tailor our offers so that rugby is about having fun; we must make sure we have a full programnme of appropriate activity for all standards and all ages."

Sky Sports rugby league experts Terry O'Connor and Phil Clarke are throwing their weight behind the new initiative and are confident it will provide a massive boost for the game.

Speaking at the launch in Widnes, O'Connor said: "It's brilliant to have some of the best players from Super League down here coaching.

"What the support teaches you about values, about work ethics - the culture within rugby league - is vital. No matter how many times you get knocked down you get back up again. That's life and rugby league has got it all.

"To have the youngsters here with the smiles on their faces is key. We must keep that community spirit going and this investment can make a big difference."

Clarke said: "The most important things in life are to be healthy and to be happy. I think Sky Try offers everybody a chance to do that, from primary to secondary school. It also offers us the chance to grow touch rugby, that is a vital component for people to enjoy the sport without the full contact side of it.

"In essence, it's about fun and friendship. It's about an opportunity for everyone to get a taste of rugby league and form some long-lasting friendships."

Posted by Flaming balls on 29 January 2015 - 07:56 AM

Why? The article is about the floodlights but also mentions the Raiders Bar being redecorated.


Sorry I read your first post wrong.

#3043873 Raiders sign 4 on loans

Posted by Flaming balls on 11 December 2014 - 08:37 PM

I'm not doubting they will be good players in the future, but they don't have enough experience playing first team at semi professional level. It's not just the Leigh players we have well over a third of our squad with minimal if not none semi pro first team experience which gets found out like we did last year.

If we signed 4 players on loan into a squad to help bulk it to blend into our squad which has lots of experience it would be a good move. But we have added inexperience onto inexperience which gets found out. Players with 100's of games at this level will likely out perform you, if with less talent.


Plenty of other players make the step up, they all have to start somewhere.

What is wrong with giving people a chance?

We all wanted Cresta as a coach, we have to trust in what he's doing.....

He hasn't let us down before. I'm sure he raided the Ameteur game then too....

#3013843 And you thought Coventry was a long trip?

Posted by Flaming balls on 14 October 2014 - 01:41 PM

The whole thing is completely laughable!

It's hard enough getting the boys to travel to the places already in place, but expecting them to use holidays to travel??? Really??? I think they already give up enought of their time now.


#2992539 NEXT SEASON’S ADMISSION COST

Posted by Flaming balls on 10 September 2014 - 06:33 PM

I don't think the club set the prices . The RFL do . I've always thought this was case but I may be wrong

RFL set the prices??? Where has that come from? If the RFL set the prices they would be the same throughout.


#2991710 New Coach

Posted by Flaming balls on 09 September 2014 - 05:24 PM

With the BoD to announce the new Coach on Thursday who do you think would be the best option?

Think you all know my opinion...lol

Tell us again Soss just to be sure lol.

I'd love Steve Deakin back, But it's all down to cost I suppose. Although I believe he has left his latest post.


#2986097 Anthony Murray

Posted by Flaming balls on 31 August 2014 - 06:12 PM

I wouldn't want him but we couldn't be much worse than we have been this season


Maybe 2005 when we won one game all season and got humped every week.
