A stroll in the park tonight for the Reds. As previously said, Widnes probably had an eye on next week but after 3 defeats from them this year, we'll take whatever's going.


Good night for Josh Griffin, great with the boot again and looked dangerous on the break. Thought he deserved MOM over Sau. Also thought Tasi had one of his best games for us.


Not sure what kind of game Warrington-Widnes will be in the playoffs. Hard to believe this was the same side who beat Wigan a couple of weeks back. Widnes are capable of an upset but on the form shown tonight, it's more likely to be a repeat of the Good Friday game.

One of my favourite players of the SL era. Pity the injuries robbed him of a yard or two of pace. I don't think he'd be far behind Maguire and Long with regards to being the best half back without the injuries and a more stable team.


I take it he's going into the backroom staff at Hull??

Well they mailed me at least. Mainly as the schedule does not match what's on the tickets. Here's the itinerary for the day -


Conference Challenge Trophy Final KO 11:45

University 9s Tournament KO 1:30

Champ 1 Grand Final 4.05

Championship Grand Final 7:00


The 9s tournament was not on the original tickets which is why the letter was sent

Well what can I say, some great ties from Salford but on the other hand some poor discipline as well. Not convinced the ref knew what was going on for long period and a heavy penalty count against Salford something like 1-3 in a game that wasn't dirty. 


Broncos should have been allowed to score that many tries, they looked clueless for long periods yet Salford managed to give them territory.


On this display it will be an easy win or Widnes next week.


Josh Griffin brought his kicking boots only missing 1 from 10.

I thought the final scoreline flattered London as the ref absolutely hammered us today. Think it was the same bloke who Hock knocked over so seemed to be getting a bit of revenge. Not sure what the final penalty count was, somewhere around 12-3 in Broncos' favour.


Saying that, Salford were a little flat today but still seemed to carve through London at will. Josh Griffin had a great game, hattrick to go along with 9 conversions.

Where would they play where hasnt already got a pro RL team, is reasonably close, and has a decent stadium? The only ones I can think of are Bury, Stockport, Man U and Man City, as Bolton is possibly too far and more likely to follow Leigh or Wigan. Are there any grounds in East Manchester, eg Droylesdon and Hyde etc

FC United's ground is not far off being finished, that will have a capacity of 5,000ish. That's over in the north-east of Manchester. There's no other grounds within Manchester which would be suitable that spring to mind. Plenty in the satellite towns though as you mention.


Googled Hyde's ground and that hold's 4,000 supposedly but it looks tiny in comparison to the FC United one that is going up. Can't imagine they'd play somewhere like that.
