  1. Bradford Rumors

    So back to living beyond their means in a stadium they can't afford. I can't see the problem there. Seriously though Bradford need stability and Koukash will not provide that.
  2. Game Day Sunday 21st January v Bradford Bulls

    If he gets to the player he makes the tackle most of the time. He won't drop off many the problem with him is that his positioning is usually terrible and he will get caught out of position quite a lot and will drop the ball quite a lot. On the plus side he will probably win more penalties for your team than any other player when he is on the pitch as defenders can't handle him and he wins a lot of penalties at the PTB. We all know he can break tackles so hes pretty fun to watch its just a shame he maybe lacked the commitment of other players when it came to improving as Im sure with a lot of hard work he could have made a good fist of it in SL especially when you consider how well someone like Ade Gardner did.
  3. Daryl Powell hails Jake Trueman

    Hoping to see plenty of him at Fax this season.
  4. Toronto

    Its a great opportunity for their youngsters to step up. They should still just sneak in to the top 4 though I would imagine.
  5. Toulouse 2018 thread

    If he had disciplinary problems then it sounds like he will fit right in at Toronto after their latest trip......
  6. 2018 Squad.

    Splashing some cash aiming for SL next year. Natural progression has to be to go full time next year hasn't it?
  7. Toulouse 2018 thread

    Brilliant news for the rest of the league.
  8. Rookies to watch in 2018

    Be interesting to see If Cas let us have Trueman like has been suggested as Im not sure been bashed about in the Championship will be seen as good for his development.
  9. We have a very young squad this year and hopefully some who broke through last season will carry on their improvement and cement places in the first team then theres also a handful of players ready to make that step up.
  10. Its a nice position to be in and anyone thinking about our demise because of a lack of transfer activity in the close season could be in for a shock.
  11. Id guess at Elliott Morris then but his brother is with us this year as well. Elliott is already a first team regular but this was his first run out this year. Strong as an ox and a very good young player, I see no reason why he couldn't step up to SL at some point. We have a couple of pairs of brothers at the club this year and it sounds like one of them, Sion Jones, was the one causing you the most trouble.
  12. We defend very well throughout the club. We just have a problem scoring points and sounded like it was the same today where we dropped far too much ball and had to rely on good defence. It looks like a few of the fringe players stood up to be counted though by the sounds of it and have a very shrewd signing in Fleming. They will learn from that hopefully against a good Fev team.
  13. Wakey friendly

    About what? Fax finishing in the top 6? Seems on most forums predictions we feature in the top 6 so Im a little confused.
  14. Wakey friendly

    I think you will struggle to find many people outside Batley to agree with you. I agree our recruitment has not been great but given the average age of our squad although bringing in some more players would have been nice its not really needed. We have a few good young lads coming through and the ones that stepped up last year I expect them to improve again. I also expect us to do better from our DR agreement with Cas than we did with Salford but we will see.
