#3121491 spuggies and jackdaws and hedgehogs and frogs

Anyone got any advice to control squirrels? Preferably humane.


Wrecking trees and generally stealing all the birds food, need to be sorted out somehow.

They don't like Chilli powder, you can add it to the feeders and the birds don't mind but the squirrels do. I used it to keep them off my bulbs.


My husband also greases the poles  that don't have baffles on them. It is funny watching thm slide down the pole.

#3105672 Gareth Hock, Challenge Cup

50% of wages is still a huge saving for Salford, and he is no longer at the club.


I would have thought that the confidentially clause would be for the details not that it exists

#3105002 Gareth Hock, Challenge Cup

I don't think the Doc actually cares and this is more about setting the stall out for a legal battle. Hock isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer and if he decides to play it will cost him dear. I've heard Salford are paying 50% of his wages under his previous contract and if he takes the field the Doc will sue him to recover previous payments and he will forfeit future payments.


As for Chase he isn't a lynchpin he is a player to make something happen or lose you the game. Before today I was more worried about the number of forwards missing but we seemed to do OK. I'd let Lannon play and wind up Hock.

#3101715 6 Apr: The Super League Match Thread (Easter Part Two)

Posted by Red Willow on 06 April 2015 - 06:05 PM

well I've enjoyed this holiday weekend.


Salford have toughened up, played a large portion of the game 2 men down with Patterson and Tommy Lee going off not to return. Thought Gelling was lucky not to join Weller and Bateman as he actually started it. Both deserved the red for continuing to fight even after the sin binning.


Bubble will probably burst at the weekend V Leeds but intend to enjoy these 2 victories

#3092284 Salford : Are they locked in contractually to use AJ Bell?

Posted by Red Willow on 20 March 2015 - 08:58 PM

People make a lot of excuses for not going to games. We can't compete with football and shouldn't play on the same day as the big 2.


Playing games at the smaller stadium at the Etihad wont help crowds Marwen just needs to hold his nerve and make the stadium work.

#3081760 That clip of Rangi Chase...

Posted by Red Willow on 02 March 2015 - 06:54 PM

Because the whole team went missing. The pack actually turned up on Saturday and Rangi was playing at fullback.


The moaning about other performances is why the sport is view as petty.

#3075905 How refreshing was tonight's commentary

Posted by Red Willow on 21 February 2015 - 01:58 PM

To make it perfect can we remove Cummings from the commentary box as well, just use him at half time or the end to explain the calls. Hopefully this will also change the focus of the game from the ref to the players.

#3073945 This week's disciplinary

Posted by Red Willow on 17 February 2015 - 09:20 PM

I hope Salford can fine him, in the last year he must have been banned for at least 3rd of the season if not more. I wouldn't be sorry if he left the club.

amazing the number of posters who say the Doc hasn't got a clue. The club off field has improved dramatically since he arrived. The link up with the partner schools and clubs is a step in the right direction. The deal with Under Armour a recognised brand is a first for RL. Coming soon is the club shop at the Lowry outlet. All this from a low starting point.


On to the game, it was bloody cold last night. Locke should not have started the game, it was obvious early on he wasn't fit. Patterson disappeared before half time, so that was 2 subs down. The game plan was poor one man rugby, the ball seemingly taken up by the backs. The was no flair or inspiration. I asked my husband whether dropping Chase would be worthwhile to see how Dobson and Fages would play together.


Hock, who would buy him? I'd send him on loan to Swinton.

#3051048 Salford Red Devils

Salford are usually low on season ticket sales, fans usually like to roll up and changing this mentality has been hard.


This year shirts have arrived before Christmas, all the players arrived for pre season before Xmas and went to Scotland for a team bonding. The club are opening an outlet in the Lowry centre there are now large adverts on the bridges over the East Lancs Road.


There has been a link up with all the local clubs and this has included teams I Manchester (as mentioned above) and Bury as well as Salford.


It is small steps but hope things will continue to improve.


Will any of this affect the on field performance, who knows

I also received an art therapy book  colouring book to you and me.

#3032583 Taylor to Salford

Posted by Red Willow on 14 November 2014 - 06:00 PM

Isn't this just a holding contract before he joins the Black and Whites?

#3015969 17/10/14 - Scotland v Wales KO 8pm

Theo has matured physically during the last year, put on weight in all the right places and has impressed defensively. Salford have actually done a good job bringing him through.


I believe boarding him with a local family helped him settle after leaving home at 16. I am hopeful Ferret will also benefit in the same way.

Flower to serve a long ban for hitting a prone man on the floor.

#2965399 Salford launch Season Tickets

Posted by Red Willow on 25 July 2014 - 05:16 PM

What the hell is going on, it isn't Christmas or New Year, and Salford manage to launch season tickets for next year!!! Shocking display of professional marketing not something we are used to.
