  2. Can't see past a wire win. I don't think they are poor enough to loose 3 in a row. And their team looks a lot stronger than ours I'm afraid.
  3. Shocking from Bird there. Playing for the penalty and now cost his team possesion.
  4. Morgan Knowles.

    Wasn't Moa banned last week?
  5. It worked perfectly last week so they must have decided to stick with it. I think mixing it up would have made it harder to defend against though. It must have been pretty easy for Cas to predict by the 4th one......
  6. He managed to play for 20 minutes with a broken arm - even scoring a try in the process! And at least Widnes have waitines for the season to start this year before the long injuries kick in....
  7. I think it's going to be a long season for both teams. Widnes were dominant in the 1st and spent long periods in the Catalan half but couldn' get over the line - which was an issue they had last year - untill they had a 1 man advantage. There were some good signs, Mellor was excellent and showed flashes of brilliance at times despite being head hunted for most of the game. Wellington Albert already seems like a fan favourite but he needs to watch his offloads, a more switched on team would have picked them off. A good start though. And it needed to be looking at the next few games.....! I shall enjoy being 2nd while I can!
  8. Kato Ottio

    News breaking on Twitter that PGN player and Widnes signing has passed away age 23. So sad Thoughts with his family at this time.
  9. Challenge Cup First Round tie live on BBC

    I've been saying for years that one day I'll follow the cup from start to finish. Well I have just decided that this year is as good as any! I think I'l start at Thatto as it's the closest to home and go from there.
  10. James Rule..... please!
  11. Women's game

    It just shows the shortsightedness of the RFL. When my daughter started playing at age 11 there were girls teams from Leigh (x2) Widnes (x2) Crossfields, Wigan, Goldburn, Ashton, Hindley, Chorley, Rochdale...... plus more I can't recall right now. Now there are only 2 girls teams. Thatto and St Judes. If the RFL had put any effort and encouraged these teams instead of constantly changing the goal posts and neglecting them then these girls would be open age now and ready to play for all these new clubs we are getting. And I feel for those remaining who may well be left without a team because they can't commit to SL terms (for whatever reason)
  12. Women's game

    I completely agree with that. Thatto and Pats are already very good teams who will loose lots of players to these new teams, and will probably struggle to field a team every week. So as well as loosing the teams, the players who don't play for the SL team will also be lost to the game. Some of those players will be bloody good ones as well, but who can't commit to the SL terms :-/ The pro-clubs should have partnered these teams imo rather than launching their own in competition.
  13. Women's game

    There is already a very good team in Wigan playing out of St Pats. I don't think there is enough interest to support 2 women's teams (plus 1 in Leigh as well).
  14. I'm looking forward to the feature on the Woman's Challenge Cup. Love it when the women's game gets good exposure.
  15. Starting Rugby As an Adult

    Merit league is a good place to start if there is a team nearby.
