  1. A good performance today from the boys. Seemed to function much better with Abram & Scott Moore at halfback and Ben Moore at 9. Excellent defence but need to be steadier with the ball and not try to score every set. Argues well for the rest of the season.
  2. Regarding helping the club financially, one of the most effective way is to buy your season ticket now. It effectively does 2 things. 1 It helps the clubs finances when there is no steady income 2 You benefit with reduced entry to all home games. It’s a no brainier!!! Sponsorship of both players and every home game is also a great source of revenue. So come on, dig deep now to help our beloved Hornets.
  3. Apparently home advantage is decided by the toss of a coin !!! You couldn’t make it up. Players from both teams will have booked holidays and signed for other clubs. How teams are going to find a full 17 will be very interesting.
  4. I have been against Dual Registration since it’s introduction and this latest Warrington fiasco only confirms my thoughts. If Warrington are threatening to withdraw DR, training facilities, etc Hornets should dispense with their services immediately as stated by excolt. I would much prefer to see the club go it’s own way with no DR players and have players who want to wear the Hornets shirt with pride turning out for us. Warringtons contribution via DR has been pitiful this season resulting in none of their players being available on a regular basis! I have supported Hornets for over 65 years and have never felt so disconnected from the club. Let’s hope we vote the right way tomorrow which is for the good of the game of Rugby League and not to continually bow down to the Super League teams many of whom should hang their heads in shame at their bullying tactics.
  5. Also gutted to see James Tilley leave. He was probably our most improved and consistent player last season. The broom sweeping our club is getting dirtier by the minute and does nothing but put Hornets in a very poor light.
  6. You are missing the point entirely. Irrespective of their playing abilities the issue is the way they have been dealt with by the club!! It's disgraceful and certainly puts our beloved Rochdale Hornets in a terrible light within the rugby league family.
  7. I would wholeheartedly agree with those two players but as I selected players who were NOT in The Heroes Team I obviously couldn't select them. There are more great players missing from my list such as Martin Hall Martin Strett Danny Sculthope Mick Baxter Andy Sullivan Dean Longeran Johnny Noon etc but in the end it's a personel choice
  8. Here is my alternative team with out using any of the Heros team. 1. Kevin Harcombe 2. Henderson Gill 3. Matt Calland 4. Mark Nixon 5. Norman Brelsford 6. John Woods 7. Phil Bancroft 8. Bill Holliday 9. Phil McKenzie 10. Neil Cowie 11. Terry Fogarty 12. Bill Sheffield 13. Tony Halmshaw Coach Kel Coslett. All Subjective
  9. Does anyone know any details regarding our challenged cup tie with Mayfield? Will the game be at Mayfield or will they consider switching the game to Spotland. Also will it be played on the Saturday or the Sunday & at what time? It would be helpful to know match details ASAP both from a spectators point of view & to publicise the fixture in the rugby league and local press. It is an ideal situation to fly the rugby league flag in Rochdale. Let's no miss this golden opportunity!!
  10. If that's true it's no surprise really considering Alan Kilshaws connections there. Would still like to see Hornets go it alone this season
  11. Just read on Twitter that St Helens are not continuing with Dual Registration next season. Can anyone confirm this please. If this is correct should we find another partner, or go it alone? From my personal view going it alone would be the preferred option.
  12. Looks a good squad. Anyone any news on Danny Bridge re- signing? He was immense for us last year.
  13. Thanks Mick. Just wanted clarification from the original poster. I wonder where he got the 8 match ban information from?
  14. Hi Rossco123 Just a point of interest. It's the first time an eight match ban has been mentioned. Could you please post details about this. An excellent signing for Hornets. Always a handful when playing against us, and happy he's now one of us!!!!
  15. It has to be Matt for me as well. Proven coach as this level and his teams play fast open attractive rugby. My only hope is that Saints don't have to much of an input into this appointment. After all we are Rochdale Hornets not Rochdale Saints!!! We need the board to be strong and pick the best man for the job irrespective of any outside possible influence. Now is the time to move on and look to promotion back to the Championshi in 2016.
