  1. So..... Let's move on, the nextt game must be the biggest game in featherstones recent history and what winning and losing really means, I'm personally a fax fan, all form is out of the window for this one. Do or Die for both teams. fax win, then dependant on the Batley match they have got top 4, Fev win and. It's all down to the last game of the season, tears and blood will be spilt, fans wondering wether to bother next year for either team, results dependant. Personally I think this middle 8's has added more passion amongst fans. I appreciate this is Fevs first year, if you get here and build and cement, then I think you would know how this structure can make a difference. Good luck Sunday and with your clubs future, regardless of the result
  2. Give over moaning. Look at the games that are left. Fax Vs Fev and Batley Vs London will decide the top 4 for me. Fax win and Batley lose then fax are in the top 4. It will then be between Bradford and Batley in last game of season. Personally I see it being Leigh, London, Bradford, Halifax. Batley to miss out on goal difference and fev to finish in 6th spot and then unfortunately the club will go tori in over the next few years
  3. According to the link the page before the club is going through the motions at 10.30 this morning.
  4. How can you blame the RFL. It's the club who have pulled the plug. Halifax still have a reserve team as do a few other clubs. It sounds to me a money saving exercise by the club. Sheffield had to get rid of theirs as they failed to be classed correctly due to their ground etc. Poor day for your club as already reliant on DR players. Will only get worse when DR is finally scrapped, and that will come eventually.
  5. ??. Elaborate on this one please ?. Fax have set up a reserve team this year and signed some of the kids back who disappeared to other academies.
  6. Hi all, fax fan here, what I will say is the EV2 gear is so inconsistent in quality that it's hard to answer. The run out tops for the Middle 8 were great quality, the shirts however were the worst I have bought for years. Personally I hope Fax go back to o'neils as that quality was far superior. Where the stitching around the collars we're was all rumpled on the ev2. Really poor workmanship.
  7. Depends how much you want. Richard Moore on £35k plus bonus and part time. Good work if you can get it.

  9. Oh you mean like Leigh have this year. Spent the cap on these class signings, just remind me again where they finished?. Oh yeah, that right, below fax and Sheffield who spent considerably less and took home considerably more. Maybe you should support Leigh or Salford. They have the same ethos. Run your business Kevin as you have and batley will be around for a long time to come, you may not reach the upper echelons on RL again but you will be around long after others have gone boom and bust.
  10. That's all well and good but with chase, Hanson, hock, higham, Patterson, moi moi, matua, Wesson. What are you paying the other 20 odd playerst?. Chump change!!. Get a grip. Cap must be broken. Plus every chairman that Beaumont has crossed/wronged will be all over getting some transparency here. Good luck.
  11. Feather stone finished 5th in regular season as highest place outside super 8 qualifiers, keep there points advantage and the shield prize money is £50k I believe
  12. Read the link above on Halifax website. 500k for last place, then 5th placed in regular season was £250k Basically once the super 8's qualifiers start the minimum anyone can leave with is half a mill, then goes up as per my previous message. I think The winner of million pound game gets full sky money, the loser £1million.
  13. 8th - £500k 7th - £550k 6th - £787k 5th - £787k - £1million 4th - full sky money 3rd - full sky money 2nd - full sky money 1st - full sky money.
  14. I think Halifax will win by 20+ points, the way the boys are playing for each other with passion and pride is great to see back after many years. I also think some of the Sheffield boys won't care too much as they are getting sent packing in a few games time which could be why their performances of late are a little lacklustre. Either way fax will stay in 6th spot or go up to 5th on points difference.
  15. Totally agree, the problem you have is exactly what Fev did, spent big, possibly more than they had and under achieved, it's going to take a few years to put that right now, Jon sharps words, not mine, I also see Bradford and Leigh going through a similar thing if not promoted, Sheffield going full time and giving out contracts that nobody wants as can't afford to pay proper full time wages, big exodus of players in the off season there. Fax, spending on infrastructure and academy to "build", this may take a few years before they can have a go at promotion but doing it in a sustainable manner is only good for the club as a whole, Richard marshals vision isn't the immediate promised land others seem to be desperate to chase. I'm loving these middle 8's and had no delusions of grandure before entering into it, a shame this can't be said for the others. Fax will be 5th or 6th. They had budgeted for 5th in the regular season.
