  1. I stand corrected! Another example of someone coming up with the facts to spoil a good conspiracy theory 😀

    Batley A

    To be honest thought Everett had one of his best games for us against Batley last time. Potts has been great for us, solid defence and under the high ball and deceptively quick and takes his chances. Think Worrincy will struggle to get back in.
  3. Dewsbury stayed up courtesy of Des Johnson breaching the salary cap at Barrow and they were relegated. But there's no way an outspoken club owner would defy the salary cap ( or threaten to ignore it and get the rules changed), see the team fail to get the results needed and then end up leaving a club with massive financial problems .........

    Well can we beat three times? Looks like Batley put a good performance at Fev, so could go either way, but heart says Batley 20 Rams 22
  5. The other events are the best bet.

    If they didn't get promoted, which was a strong possibility then Beaumont would have had to pick up all the funding shortfall as the parachute payment would have gone. As history had proved time and time again most sugar daddies have finite money and patience. And it isn't like Beaumont is worth tens of millions and he is volatile character. I am not blaming the players but nothing is guaranteed in sport and certainly not promotion to SL or sugar daddies continuing to pump money in. SL clubs all get their £1.8m Sky money, unless they got promoted Leigh would get a fraction of this.

    These companies had years of successful trading behind them. It is hardly comparable. Anyone signing for Leigh must have known they were taking a chance beyond this season.

    I think there'd have been a lot more posts if we'd lost.

    Feigning injuries

    In the game on Sunday, three Swinton players went down "injured" when they were under pressure near their line. None were head injuries, none went off. The original question was that I remember a time when the game was only stopped for serious injuries.

    And this was a team that beat us a few weeks ago

    While you can't criticise him for what he did and the money he put in, he knew what the consequences were if they didn't make the top 4. He's right that he almost didn't have a choice but he chose to roll the dice and with so much at stake, not having a contingency plan is naive at best. It's not up to the local council to bail out RL clubs, it's not like councils are awash with money.

    Dan Igebindion had a try disallowed for double movement, not sure how Teanby managed not to score, Potts almost scored from a cross kick in the first half. Gudzek bombed a chance second half by not drawing and giving to Sykes ...we had more chances to score than Swinton. Given the win pretty much guarantees our place in the Championship next season and it was a comprehensive win thought the forum would be a bit more upbeat.

    Not sure either of them kicked goals for us?

    Hankins definitely played 10 and Lowe12 as Jeff Grayson played 11.

    Feigning injuries

    At the Dewsbury v Swinton game today had at least three Swinton players go down "injured" when play got near their line and play stopped. All three miraculously recovered to play on, none of them were head injuries. I might be wrong but I seem to remember a time when if a player was injured unless it was serious it was play on.... or have things changed?
