I suppose it depends on the amateur and their aspirations. Our players have found a new level of professionalism under Phil. I've heard that some players have been asked to put nearly a stone on in muscle over the close season with meal planners of up to 8 meals a day. Steak for breakfast anyone?
This might scare some amateur players off but the ones with the right attitude will realise that this is the commitment they have to make. The pinnacle of their career might be a BARLA tour, or it might be like Lunty's with challenge cup finals and international tours down under. Until they make that step up they will never know.

Wonder if they will keep Seymour, suppose now there is more cash to spend there's no limit to what they can afford. Another 3 PNG's, 2 Aussies and 5 French and because they all will live on Kells they will class them as locals!!

So he's intentionally attacked a player to the head with an illegal tackle which could have broken his jaw etc. and that's deemed a minor misdemeanour !!!!!


Can't speak.



I think you're being a tad dramatic , I assume you know macca to know what his intentions were.



No one is saying it was accident bar yourself. 

Homeandawayer said it was intentional, you, defending the player then questioned if it was intentional . The opposite of intentional is accidental ergo you are suggesting it was, or could have been accidental. I was being sarcastic as I'm sure it was intentional.

The guy isn't evil, it's rugby ffs, but to put a player out of the game with an illegal tackle isn't something to be boasting about like he has been on social media. We have had angel vs lucifer on here which is getting over the top, but it would have been exactly the same if Burke had done the same to him and we had won on the Dews site. Your defence of your player is a bit misjudged as even level headed players lose their temper, remember Sinfield? At the time the game was getting a bit of needle in it, your hero got it wrong and should have walked. He has been found guilty and now banned.

Good luck in the next round, although it's starting to leave a bitter taste now.

Fingers crossed its Keighley just for their lovely chairman.
Was text an interesting crack yesterday by a Haven fan mate who says Woods is out and a familiar face is returning as coach for next season. Can't see it happening though as H4E wouldn't sanction it given his views on the current training regime!

The RfL have to make an example of batley and send out a message to other clubs regarding the rules.i would rather things were decided on the pitch and no doubt Mr mullet will run back to deluded with this saying we are wanting a deduction because we lost today which isn't the case its just that rules are rules.

I think Mr Mullet will want a points penalty as much as you do pal, I think you and him must be either family or ex lovers as you are obsessed with each other on the Jam Forum!!

Maybe taking it a bit too far but you get my drift lol.

I think some of the comments are harsh on Kayle. While he hasn't been a stand out performer this season I think he has been a valuable squad player especially given the size of our squad. Do we know for certain he hadn't been carrying any injuries while playing ? Players go in and out of form and confidence.
It wasn't that long ago Forber was getting the same sort of comments and would anyone say that now?
He's one of our lads so let's not give him a kicking in public, I hope he comes back from injury and proves his worth.
We are starting to sound like them lot down the road having a go at our own lads.

Seymour a has been.If I were you I would wait and see how he goes on the field before making statements based on bitter and twisted jealousy.

Davo, I think Seymour has to be a wait and see. He might still have some of the magic or maybe not. I wonder why a bigger club hasn't given him a try if all his demons are behind him, lets face it a couple of SL clubs could seriously use him if he is sorted out.

Ainscough and The big PNG prop were all gonna be big things (in terms of playing not just size of shirt) in recent seasons but never lived up to the hype.

#2891785 Team and predictions for Swinton

Posted by The Voodooguru on 02 March 2014 - 08:41 PM

Well considering the conditions I find it hard to have a go at any player. We played into a driving wind and rain in the first half that dropped considerably by the second half. We did what we had to in the second and while we maybe could have denied them a BP it was a hard game to play in.

Swinton looked like they were set up to play expansive rugby which wasn't gonna happen today at DP, Penny & Bridge etc were never gonna make a huge difference. I thought we defended superbly. Anyone can say that we could have done more offensively but it ended up a war in the mud and on the whole I thought our lads were fantastic. Callum, Jarred, Liam McAvoy were superb and nobody let the team down.

Give Butch and the lads some credit please, it was a great effort. You have gotta give Swinton credit for keeping at it for the full 80 mins even down to 12 men. Our defensive effort was awesome.

I'm one of the "ass lickers" who said not to panic.

I agree the communication coming out of the club is nothing short of shocking and I'm sure it will affect the gates at the beginning of the season. But because they haven't told you who they have signed there is no need to have a tantrum.
I don't believe for one minute that there isn't anyone in the bag which for whatever reason hasn't yet been announced.
If you feel that strongly about it contact the club, instead of blubbering on here how disgusted you are be man enough to speak to one of the board.

I don't agree with how the communication links work at the club and there is huge room for improvement, but I haven't got the time to put in and help updating the website or whatever. There are folk who post on this forum who surely have the time to do a few updates. But as I haven't I don't think it's my place to offer criticism when I don't know the full facts.
I have no idea who you are TF10, you may be a jameater or you maybe somebody that was once close to the club and have an axe to grind. Either way your glass in life is either half empty, or you are trolling. You can call me what you want, but if you don't have the nads to either speak to the BOD or stand up and be counted no amount of bleating on here will make any difference at all.

The salary cap was brought in firstly to try and stop clubs from overspending and getting them into financial trouble which has failed, and secondly to try and even up the competition which again has failed. So now the top clubs can't afford the Slaters or Thurstons without breaching the cap and the result is SL is now much inferior to the NRL with most of the Aussies coming over not being the superstars of the game, and our home bred stars all going to play in the NRL.
It would be an easier product to market with an Inglis etc playing here.

#2845603 Pre-Season training

Posted by The Voodooguru on 01 December 2013 - 12:58 PM

TF10 does have some valid points even if he is rubbing a few folk up IMO.
On the back of the RLWC I expected a bit more news from the club to try and keep interest going. Soon after we had the replica shirts info which was spot on and since then it's all been a bit quiet.
I know dealings with players can take time and I know the club will be doing all it can to get the best ones available for the budget but it has all gone a bit flat.
Fingers crossed this week it will all change.

LIke quite a few posters over there BKM is constantly having digs at Town.... Fact not a dig


He is just upset all the Barrow players who the deluded ones thought were going to sign for Haven have all chosen not to.


Interesting to see how Haven are busy spending the NMP £50K sponsorship money like there is no tomorrow....... but then again what do you expect from that morally bankrupt club.....

If what is being said at work by the haven fans themselves is true that 50k won't even pay 2 of their top players wages for the season!!

Haven't seen that much of Lee play but he is well thought of in Barrow and that will do for me.

Welcome to Cumbria's premier Rugby League team Lee.

Come on lads TF10 may have different views from yourselves, this is a forum after all. But calling him a jameater - REALLY!?!? Poor lad doesn't deserve to be called that without any proof. Why don't you just say he hangs round schools in a Jimmy Saville track suit with a bag full of sweets and his cigar hanging out? It's only marginally more offensive!! The lad will be chucking himself in the derwent saying stuff like that!!
