  1. Scott Turner

    What are you talking about? This is comparing like with like - Championship players this year.
  2. Scott Turner

    There has been discussion recently about the decision to release Kyle Briggs. But it is also worth looking at the decision to release Scott Turner. I’m sorry about that because he is a prolific try scorer. There are two ways of judging try scoring feats. The obvious one is tries scored but I prefer to look at what I call the Try Rate percentage. That is the number of tries per game. In 2017 Josh Hardcastle has been rightly praised to the hilt and is our leading try scorer with 15. But Josh played 29 games giving him a Try Rate of 52%. Scott scored one fewer try but only played in 17 games giving him a Try Rate of 82%. In fact he is the only Fev player to get into the Top 20 Try Rates for 2017. .
  3. 2018 Squad.

    YES, YES, YES, jamescolin. Agree 100%. You have to build a team, not play at putting together other team's cast-offs in the hope of turning them into a winning side.
  4. 2018 Squad.

  5. Andy Bostock retires

    All the very best to Andy. Have loved watching him play for us over the last seven years. Always gave 100%, always a joy to have in our team. He ranks in my top group of players who have played in the Fev shirt since I started watching in the 1970s. Planning to write some articles next year about players who gave me particular pleasure and Andy will certainly be one of them. Happy retirement and I hope we will often see you at the ground on match days.
  6. Hi to all our Halifax friends. Every week ‘fevnut’ does a blog about our up-coming match and we thought that it might well be of interest to you as well as our own supporters. There’s also a page about the referee and a listing of every official match there’s ever been between Halifax and Fev going back to the first one in 1921. How many players in the current Fev and Fax squads have played for the other team? You’ll find the answer at the end of the ‘T’Other Side: Halifax’ page. Use the link below and then you will find the links to other pages on the right hand side of the page. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/match-34-away-qualifiers-fevnuts.html
  7. fevnut’s blog is now complete for this week. It’s been quite hard to write the ‘musings’ page this week. Like most Fev fans, we suspect, we descended to a very low ebb after the Warrington game. We reflect on that one and our general record against Super League teams in the last 3 years - not all bad! We also make a plea to the RL about the timing of the next re-structuring. It is also worth taking a look at the T’Other Side: Halifax page. We have added a lot more player profiles since we last played them. Have a look at the record of our referee this week, the ‘up and coming’ Tom Grant. The link below will take you straight to the ‘musings page’ and then you can access other pages by using the links down the right hand side. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/match-34-away-qualifiers-fevnuts.html
  8. Hi to all our friends in Warrington. Every week ‘fevnut’ does a blog about our up-coming match and we thought that it might well be of interest to you as well as our own supporters. You might, in particular be interested in what ‘fevnut’s musings’ has to say about our improved performance last week and the huge travel problems that will exist in the Championship should Catalans end up being relegated. There’s also a page about the referee and a listing of every official match there’s ever been between Warrington and Fev going back to the first one in 1924. Have a look at the result the last time Warrington came to Fev for a League Match. We met at Wembley in 1974 but which final played at The Willows saw a meeting of Warrington and Fev?

  9. fevnut’s blog is now complete for this week. In ‘musings’ we give our verdict on the performance of the team against Catalans, a very positive one, but explain why, in some ways, a victory for Catalans was the better result for Fev fans looking forward to 2018. We also explain why we are really thrilled about the signing of Tom Holmes. It is also worth taking a look at the T’Other Side: Warrington Wolves page because with the Wolves having secured their Super League status it is just possible that they might throw in a couple of their youngsters on Sunday. As usual there is also a page devoted to Sunday’s referee. The link below will take you straight to the ‘musings page’ and then you can access other pages by using the links down the right hand side. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/fevnuts-blog-warrington-home-qualifiers.html
  10. Greetings from a passionate Featherstone supporter who loves Perpignan and its surroundings. Every week ‘fevnut’ does a blog about our up-coming match and we thought that it might well be of interest to you as well as our own supporters. In this week’s musings we think about why we have been producing such poor performances in the Qualifiers when faced with Super League opposition. Maybe the players need a psychiatrist! Not an insult but a practical suggestion. There’s also a page about the referee and a listing of every official match there’s ever been between Catalans and Fev. Use the link below and then the links to other pages are on the right-hand side. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/fevnuts-blog-catalans-away-qualifiers.html
  11. fevnut’s blog is now complete for this week. In this week’s musings we think about why we have been producing such poor performances in the Qualifiers when faced with Super League opposition. Maybe the players need a psychiatrist! Not an insult but a practical suggestion. We also wonder what is going on in the RFL referees department with just two referees covering 6 of our last 7 matches. Surely that’s not a good thing whoever they are. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/fevnuts-blog-catalans-away-qualifiers.html
  12. Hi to all our friends in East Hull. Every week ‘fevnut’ does a blog about our up-coming match and we thought that it might well be of interest to you as well as our own supporters. You might, in particular be interested in what ‘fevnut’s musings’ has to say about success of the Super 8s and what the next re-structure of the competitions should include. There’s also a page about the referee and a listing of every official match there’s ever been between Hull KR and Fev going back to the first one in 1921. Use the link below and then the links to other pages are on the right-hand side. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/fevnuts-blog-hull-kr-home-qualifiers.html
  13. fevnut’s blog is now complete for this week. In ‘musings’ we review the Super 8s structure and put forward our ideas about the next major restructure which is due at the end of next year. There’s a lot to think about in considering how to take forward professional rugby league. Although we have already played Hull KR twice this year they have brought in several players since we last met, obviously hoping to strengthen their bid to gain promotion back to Super League so it is well worth looking at that page too. The link below will take you straight to the ‘musings page’ and then you can access other pages by using the links down the right hand side. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/fevnuts-blog-hull-kr-home-qualifiers.html
  14. Hi to all our friends in Widnes. Every week ‘fevnut’ does a blog about our up-coming match and we thought that it might well be of interest to you as well as our own supporters. There’s also a page about the referee and a listing of every official match there’s ever been between Widnes and Fev going back to the first one in 1926. You might, in particular be interested in what ‘fevnut’s musings’ has to say about the modern habit of making wholesale changes to club squads every year and the lack of the ability of a team to develop by playing together over a sufficiently long period. Use the link below and then the links to other pages are on the right-hand side. http://fevblog452.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/fevnuts-blog-widnes-vikings-away.html
  15. fevnut’s blog has now been completed for this week. In ‘musings’ we put forward our view about how planning should be done, hoping that over the next few years we might have a fairly settled team that can develop together. If you are going to Sunday’s match you might like to look at the ’ T’Other Side’ page as there have been massive changes in the Widnes squad since we last played them in 2011. Widnes were ‘promoted’ at the end of that season on the franchise system despite the fact that Rovers beat them 56-16 and 44-4 in the league matches. Enough to make a Fev fan paranoid! You can check all past results between Widnes and Fev on the ‘Past Matches’ page.
