Shouldn't you be worrying about Leigh taking your best prop back and immediately loaning him to London for the rest of the season !

In Topic: Town V Haven predictions.The bash!

Yesterday, 11:24 AM

Also Super League came in at very short notice to be able to plan - this applied to every club but was more acute at a smaller, less prepared club than Town.

Nermind getting a squad together - all the other stuff such as backroom staff, the ground, match day organisation, marketing, press calls, dealing with agents wanting silly money as it was sloshing around, etc, etc.

 

 

The money that was being paid to players at the start of SL was silly. When Rowland Phillips left the club a friend of mine rented the furnished flat he'd just vacated, he found a copy of Rowly's contract in the flat and the amounts involved were staggering for a club like ours.

Osborne borrowed more in 5 years than ALL Labour governments have cumulatively ever.


But that was still £120 billion less than Labour planned on borrowing in the same period as per their 2010 election manifesto.

This Leigh team remind me of Don Revie's Leeds United team. A team that can play some fantastic stuff but who are cynical and push the boundaries of niggly play to unsettle and wind up the opposition. Respected for their achievements but not admired for them. Being a bad loser is one thing but being a graceless winner is even worse.

Leigh can play some great stuff but brawls are a common theme with them, they have a very thuggish pack.
