I don't think yesterday will be your toughest match all season particularly as we seemed to stop defending after 30 mins but you have an impressive squad - fast, powerful, well organised and skillful. Skolars on the other hand.......

Blimey it is still the 1970s in Barrow? This is exactly how I remember RL looking on Grandstand back then!!

I think that's almost certainly true. Tricky though - we wanted more fixtures, and they've certainly given us more fixtures. Even as a STH though I had no problem whatsoever with the idea of not going to watch on Saturday. I'm waiting for the league proper to start in April.

I am seeing it more as an extra set of friendlies before the season starts (although that may be a post hoc rationalisation for Skolars drubbing!)

 

OT but I don't see why we have to have such a staggered start to the leagues...

Yes, one of the slightly frustrating things about the way the season is organised is that if you lose your L1 Cup game and then lose your Challenge Cup game (as seems probable for Skolars, Oxford, South Wales & Coventry?) then your next game is not until Good Friday - 3 weeks off.  Mind you, Coventry probably won't have had any home games until the league kicks off in April.

 

I reckoned about 120 at Skolars, although I see the official crowd is given as 156.

 

Depending on what happens in the CC this weekend perhaps some local friendlies could be organised - keeping match fit is going to be key this season.

 

I got bored watching the endless parade of York tries in the second half yesterday (four in one ten min spell) and counted the crowd. Reckon 150 is right with around 20 from York. Some regulars were in Leigh and look at gates more generally I don't think the L1 Cup is a going to be a big crowd puller.

Your prediction in the braclets wasnt far off!
