It's always hard to know what's really going on but this doesn't sound good.




Hopefully they can get it sorted and get themselves into a new stadium. That Huntingdon place was just not good enough, especially for those of us with fond memories of Whiggington Rd/Clarence St.

Dual Reg: Conflict of interests?

21 December 2014 - 04:02 PM

Hull KR and Halifax are dual reg'd for 2015.


Now it's far from being beyond the bounds of possibility that HKR don't make the Top 8 in SL, and Fax are an outside shot for Top 4 in Ch.


If they end up playing each other in the middle 8 that could lead to all sorts of complications about which players the parent club make available to the junior partner for which games.


Or does the RFL have robust legislation already in place to cover this eventuality?

Only seven of ours in the 30 man squad.




We are truly ###### at the 50 over stuff though.

New Rugby League Book out.

Obvioulsy of more interest to the fans of one particular club, it is nevertheless an interesting chronicle of a year in the life of a top level Championship club. Plenty has happened over the year, a lot of which has been discussed on TRL.


There are a few folk on here who know me, so if you fancy a copy you can get one here (only a tenner):




or call in at the Rovers club shop.


It's the fifth book Ive written, and I am always interested in feedback to help improve future editions.





The 2015 Squad.

09 November 2014 - 07:27 PM

Right, among much disinformation, I thought I'd present the numbers.


We finished 2014 with a bare bones of a squad plus a number of long term injuries.


There was the 17 who played in the final plus Bostock, Worthington, Smeaton, Trout, Kent, Flanagna, Mendeika and Dale all injured.


That's 25 players.


Of course it doesn't include the 13 players who had already left: Etuate Uaisele Ben  Hellewell Jamie  Rooney Kyle Briggs Gavin Bennion Tommy  Saxton Colton Roche Jamel Chisholm Daniel Smith Danny Bridge Chris Green Harry Siejka Jarrod Sammut.


Now, of those 25, 6 players: Kent, Crossley, Dale, Worthington, Smeaton and Hirst  have left. We'll leave the rumours about Crookes, Kain, Annakin, etc for now.


We've signed 6 players: Sykes, Verlinden, Irwin, Marchant, Millard, and Nicholson (new player really). We may also have Walmsley and Ormondroyd. Plus those kids Harper and Milner.


It's already a pretty full squad.


25 is about right for a squad with a reserve team.


Panic over. Carry on.
