    West Bank Thrown out of NW Premier Comp

WIDNES WEST BANK NCL RECORD SCORES. Best home win :- 2012 86- 2 .v. Ovenden. Best away win :- 2012 52-10 .v. Crosfields. Worst home defeat:- 2012 10-32 .v. Crosfields. Worst away defeat:- 2012 0-68 .v. East Leeds. Most sides who have joined the NWCL and risen so rapidly through the divisions have usually found the premier division a step too far but West Bank got there and won that as well. I credit them for that but, their reputation has been awful for years and, the only time I ever went to a game there we had a weak weak team, full of inexperienced lads, and they basically got beaten up. I was involved with a team that had a bad reputation for a number of years but there are always people at these clubs who are genuine and deserve better. Looking through my records I have never known a place like Widnes for lads moving from one club to another. They seem to start in the bottom division then win all the titles to the top, then disband or drop to the bottom again only to re-form, sometimes as a different club. Maybe its the same problem people that are moving around.
  5. The only game I have watched on TV all this season is the Challenge cup final. I travel the length and breadth of this Country to watch RL at all levels - all except SL that is.
  6. I stopped watching RL back chat a couple of weeks ago when the guy who hosts it (Can't think of his name) said that the pre Super Greed premiership finals at Old Trafford were meaningless games. Typical SL arrogance. It should be re-named SL back chat. RL AM on the other hand is a programme I can't wait to watch, with enthusiastic presenters, excellent guests giving honest opinions and I love to hear the players telling their experiences. I will not be looking at any replies to this comment as I just don't care what anybody else thinks.

    Rugby League Viewing Figures Down Again

    I have not watched a single league game on TV this season because 1/ I don't like Super League, 2/ There is not enough uncertainty about the result, and 3/ More teams had a chance of winning in the pre SL era. I could not care less what anybody else thinks so won't be viewing any replies to this.
  9. Salford were just about the better team at Leeds, even without Hastings. I sincerely hope and expect them to win in London but it certainly won't be easy. London won the last meeting between them. I was looking forward to watching this but can't now its been moved to Saturday. A lot will depend on the form of one of my favourite players - Jarrod Sammut.
  10. Where did you get that from? That's not what we are hearing in Salford but yes the Salford .v. Toulouse game has been moved to Thursday for TV. This means I can't go to either game as I work 5 Nights Monday to Friday. Nearly bought train tickets to London as well. Glad I didn't now. Oh well - Swinton .v. Featherstone and Batley .v. Swinton it is then pn the next two Sundays..

    What happens if the TV money drops????

    It would be marvellous. Batley would be the richest club in RL. All the Saints players (that didn't get on the next plane back to Australia) would be rushing to Barrow for a job!
  12. West Hull need 8 wins to become the first NCL team to reach 1000 league points. They would have needed 6 wins but they had 4 points deducted some years back. Not sure who is closest to them without checking my records. I will do that tomorrow. Leigh Miners would be my guess but this is not just the premier league, includes games in all divisions of the NCL.
  13. Nobody in their right mind would trust the Super Greed club Chairmen.

    NCL record points

    Thanks for the appreciation guys. Over many years I have spent many hours researching amateur Rugby League and it's nice when somebody gets benefit from it. Regarding the league champions Davo - this is where my stats will not appear accurate because whoever finishes top of the table in my world will be the Champions and the team that finishes second will be runners up. That is the way it has always been and always will be. I record the play offs as a seperate competition but they still appear in my club stats. I will give an example. In 2017 I recorded Thatto Heath as runners up but also grand final winners. I'm sorry if this causes confusion but I flatly refuse to accept anybody who finishes top of the table after 22 games are not the champions. THATTO HEATH CRUSADERS’ MAJOR HONOURS.

    Hull & Barrow league 2018

    You are wasting your time trying to find accurate information on amateur RL these days Kev. BARLA stopped printing cup results and league tables in the handbook in 1997 and the RFL treat amateur RL like its just a nuisance. I have kept the amateur results pages out of the RL press papers every week and when I can be bothered I will work the tables out myself, but I don't suppose all the results will be there?
  20. I first watched Salford away at Leeds in 1971. I have been about 15 times since then and never seen Salford win. I remember Salford winning there twice in my lifetime and I missed both. I have a ticket for Friday so put your money on Leeds! On a more serious note, I would love and I hope Salford win at Headingley on Friday night but I am going there more in hope than expectation simply because I don't think there is much to choose between the teams and by the law of averages Salford are due to lose. Also, home advantage and the intimidating atmosphere will make a difference. If Salford win I will be elated and will go home a very happy man.

    NCL record points

    25 teams have over 500 points. West Hull are top with 984 points and I was right about Leigh Miners Rangers being second but they have a lot to do to catch up with 869 points.

    this seasons relegation

    Wigan St. Patricks were the only team to never have been relegated from the premier division until now, but they have finished bottom twice before. The first time there was only one division and they were re-elected then the second time they were saved because the top division was increased by 2 teams.
  24. I don't get to Salford too often these days (I work Friday nights) but I always have a pint, either in the main bar outside the ground or in the beer tent. Depends where my son goes really. Say hello - I'm the old fart usually in the unusual RL shirt (Celtic Crusaders, Aberavon Fighting Irish, Kilkenny Wildcats, etc)! Salford City FC are at home and some people watch both. A lot of Salford fans will also give priority to playing for their amateur clubs on a Saturday as well. Apart from that, sadly, even though Salford fans are some of the most passionate around they are a huge minority to football fans in the City. Don't expect more than 3000.
  25. I watched Toronto at Halifax and I watched Salford at Halifax. I will be at the game and expect Salford to win by 18 even though it will be very close in the first Half. I watched Toronto last time they played at Salford and I hope that this time they come to play Rugby League because last time the game plan was pure intimidation and that didn't work. I doubt very much that Harry Stottle will stand out in a neutral shirt as last time I saw this fixture I counted about 16 different neutral shirts and, will probably be wearing one myself (Celtic Crusaders maybe) because I don't own Salford or Toronto shirts. Really hope Salford win this one, but good luck to Toronto after Saturday. I hope they reach Super League if only to watch the uproar that will cause.
