  1. What's the best we've got ? Hardaker, Hall, Percival, Watkins, McGilvery, Widdop, Williams, S Burgess, Hodgeson, Graham, Whitehead, McMeekin, O'Loughlin SUBS Houghton, Curry, Hill, Watts SQUAD: Shaul, Cudjoe, J Burgess, Gale, Clarke, Farrell, G Burgess, Walmsley, Taylor, simply not good enough to turn over Australia unless the Ausies have a nightmare performance.
  2. From memory the proposed cost of Wakefield's stadium was circa £19Million
  3. RIP Evan sleep peacefully young fella
  4. How on earth can anyone find a charge against Sarginson from that? The security guard would be facing 2 years in prison for his actions as it looks like a totally unprovoked attack with both punches and crucially kicks aimed at someone while they're on the ground. Sarginson should take legal action against both the security thug, the company he works fir and the nightclub who contracts that company. Ten a penny tough guys who use working on doors to enable them to act as a gang p¡ss me right off!
  5. He was celebrating his try so why was it early? cas fans calling him throughout the game is it's only right he gave them some back after battering their forwards and then scoring a try.
  6. There could be loads of content if they chose to cover the varied levels of the game and added other formats like documentaries, chat show etc SL, Championship, Champ 1 are obvious Academy, Scholarship, Junior internationals would be good non peak fillers National Confrence League highlight shows of all of the above to also cover footage of non featured full matches, this would also help lower leagues bring in sponsorship and maybe retain players. Rugby League Gold player profiles, RL focused documentaries, chat shows, etc Emerging Nations international matches e.g. Spain v Germany Pacific Nations Tests Theres loads if they chose to show it
  7. He says this every time something new is revealed, I'm beginning to wonder if he's just being intentionally ignorant so he can be irrationally indignant.
  8. Don't like Studd as a commentator he talks over everything in a constant barrage of bull tish. I often have to turn off the volume to give my ears a rest and just get to appreciate the match
  9. You better be quick, the club are reporting just a few tickets left at the ticket office
  10. Can't believe this isn't on TV local derby and two teams locked together joint 3rd in the league Trinity by 10
  11. Wakefield were missing half a team so it's an impressive result away to an on fire Salford Grix, Tupou, Miller, Arona, Walker, Johnstone, Allgood, Kirmond
  12. This an interesting one, there's nothing between the two teams as recent games have shown. Wakefields loss of Miller and Salford's home advantage might be the deciding factors. Heart says Wakefield by 4 Head says Salford by 4
  13. I haven't read through every post on this thread so please forgive me if I'm remaking a point already made. It may be a sour grapes motivated rant from Durham but he's right! Rank bad officiating has become so much a part of our game that it's now an idiosyncrasy, perhaps we've become so accustomed to it that we don't really recognise how low the quality of our officials has sunk. Personaly I don't blame the officials, I blame the changing nature of the game or more precisely, the games inability to evolve officiating to match the pace of that change. Couple this with some 'jobs for the boys' appointments at Red Hall which has seen inappropriate and inadequate Referees Controllers take charge thus accelerating the deterioration. It's time for a complete unfettered review of the RFLs Offials department followed by a total rebuild leaving it fit for purpose and robust. I'll add this also, Referee performance should not be exempt from commentary box criticism but the levels of negativity emanating from the SKY microphones does nothing for the game at any level. It doesn't help the viewing experience, it presents a poor impression to the casual TV viewer, I've no doubt it plays a part in the existing disenchantment of current officials while putting off potential new recruits to the Officials courses. Stuart Cummins has no place in a commentary team and only serves to exacerbate the confusion over the myriad of interpretations of every rule. Why have we made celebrities of our officials anyway? In my lifetime watching many sports one thing is universally true across them all. THE BEST OFFICIALS ARE ANONYMOUS, INVISIBLE AND SEEMINGLY HAVE NO BEARING ON THE ACTION OR THE RESULT! Im sad to say that in Rugby League the truth is the opposite. Something has to change!
  14. WIGAN WARRIORS 30 - 42 WAKEFIELD TRINITY Trinity go 4th in the table as Widnes down the Rhinos
  15. Only one from Wakefield, 18 year old Full Back Luke Hooley, courtesy of Neds younger brother Richard who's Head of Youth at Wakefield. One from Huddersfield, 19 year old Back Rower Billy Hayes, courtesy of Neds older brother Andy who's Head of Youth at Huddersfield. It seems it helps to have family connections
