  1. Would you prefer a 4G Pitch at SLS ?

    Yes agree it seemed to suit us , maybe some of the old slower Hunslet sides of the past it wouldn't , but would be nice now for us to get this down and it looks like a bowling green surface from a distance. I think the best people to ask would actually be the players and coaches about this as the old 4G pitches players used to get like carpet burns on players skin if I remember rightly. Now don't think this will ever happen as the cost of laying one of these is between £300,000 to £500,000 or so the Soccer store says. Think I would rather the Council build a stand opposite the main stand instead then.
  2. Easter games

    After our game on Friday , I watched the Bradford v Oldham game later on Bulls TV. similar score to us , but I thought Oldham played better than us at Bradford , even though the score was similar . Having said that we played terrible on Friday v Keighley but a lot better Monday v Bradford for periods at least. Oldham will be a big test as can't really see us winning there , ( we don't usually that is ) What we need is a leader , like our departed George Flanagan ,that's someone to take charge of the team on the pitch. I still think we will beat some of the better teams in this league most likely at our home ground though.
  3. Bradford 32, Hunslet 12

    Yes agree with Hawkwindbag on this one well put. I do think we need a leader now we lost George Flanagan , that was apparent yesterday , don't know who can or will do this now for us. Plus as you said we made costly silly mistakes , leading to Bradford tries,where as Bradford didn't make many , not important ones that is. And it's a shame we lost Duckworth who now is playing amateur , he did play well for us and Fev this last couple of years on the wing, Gibson needs to be back in the centre spot as he is not a winger. Looking at Bradford yesterday , yes they played and look better than us , but they are not a patch on the last years Toronto team , and I see them getting beat at say one or two teams away this season, can see this happening at Oldham , I think it's this coming Friday they go there, but most likely Bradford will win this league as they are mostly full time players and that matters playing part timers. beating Keighley on Friday is vital now if we want to maintain chasing with the pack .
  4. New date for Bradford Challenge Cup game

    Lenin is right , there isn't a better option available , not like it could be left to later in the season.
  5. Danny Ansell

    What I seen of Danny in my opinion was he was only good when we played the likes of Oxford or say Hemel .When it comes to the better teams , he went absent missing tackles and not being in the game. He did play a lot of games for Hunslet but he would not have been in my team if I was anything to have done with it , I wish him all the best with you though .
  6. New date for Bradford Challenge Cup game

    The rearranged tie for the Challenge cup is now Easter Monday 2nd April @ 2pm Well done to Huns getting it on this day as , still should be a good gate as it's a public holiday, and should suit most people.
  7. So where do you think we will finish ?

    I would say King. 1. Bradford 2. York 3. Doncaster 4. Hunslet 5. Oldham 6. Whitehaven 7. Keighley 8. Workington 9. Gateshead 10. London 11. North Wales 12. Coventry 13. West Wales 14. Hemel Think Bradford will get beat in at least a couple of away games maybe more. They are not as good as Toronto last season.
  8. Toronto Wolfpack

    Visas are $7 don't pay any more as some can be a rip off if you don't go on the right visa application site.
  9. Toronto Wolfpack

    We went with Air Transat in conjunction with Toronto Wolfpack, think it's the same thing that you mentioning here Colinb. Anyway, for 5 nights staying at the Sheraton Hotel, return flights & match ticket this year flying out on the 22nd June cost £725 each. if you can afford it don't think about it book it. The Sheraton Hotel is one of the smartest hotels going. The round the bay trip is good too at $17 each and The Steamboat Brewery tour is worth going round at $14 with 2 or 3 free drinks in with the price, what with the after carnival type party going on after the game which is, in the ground with the marquee tents it's a must, glad I went to Toronto well worth it. And it's only a 7 and half hour flight going & a 6 hours flight back.
  10. Grimmer is back

    Yes, good news and great to have him back with us. Playing him at loose forward a good idea that one King. Looking forward to the season already for once in a long time. what with the players, we have got and the new signing's made.
  11. Danny Ansell

    Have to be honest, Mark, Pudsey Hawk has it spot on about Danny Ansell, he only seemed to shine against the likes of Oxford Hemel, South Wales . His tackling was poor as well, but good luck to the lad playing for your team Swinton & Wales in the world cup. Hope he proves me wrong, I would doubt that though.
  12. Shield

    Yes, it was a good game yesterday, I enjoyed it. London has come on a lot since their early days, and they did beat one or two established clubs throughout the season including us. They are the best of the new clubs I would say. We need to add to our better players though for next season or it will be more or less the same, we are told the club is going to, with the help of added sponsorship and we do have a good coach for once in a long time. So it's a case again of let's wait and see. As for the shield, the plate which had the dripping and bread on it looked as good from a distance.
  13. I usually agree with most of your posts Scubby , but not this one. empty stands no way, I went to Toronto this year to see my team and there was a 7,000 crowd more than some Super League teams get so you're off the mark here. The camera's at the game do seem to show the unpopulated side, but it is a big stadium. So your wrong on that point. Yes no Canadian's in the team, give them chance Canadian's don't play our sport yet. And they did it the right way starting from the bottom tier.
  14. Yes, it is a great read Dih68, and one I totally agree with, unlike Parksider who only posts negatives against the Wolfpack as he can only see a Bradford Bulls being allowed back into the super league for all their failings, shame on him. Parksider the Hunslet/Bradford fan who doesn't even go to any games, so who is he to be so negative on the best thing to happen in years to our sport. Just for once I see a glimmer of hope for the greatest game on the planet.
  15. sssshhhhhh

    It could be worse we could be following Swinton with the problems that they are having and they are in a league above us. Leeds sponsored Hunslet in our last home game, so what do we do say we don't want the money.We don't have a millionaire to call on. Yes, we should have done better with the duel reg, but we had a coach more interested in them than us and that didn't help us. Not having duel reg now is what the people who walked away wanted, so why don't they come back to us like you did John and support us, it's what they wanted. I agree now no more duel reg again but if we can take young good players like Sanderson off Leeds who don't want him anyway to feature in their plans we must do, that's a no- brainer... To be hoped the RL doesn't split division 2 up into 2 leagues or we will be in trouble.
