    This is nonsense. 11,000 went to the game because it was the last. Have a look how many went to other games that season.

    Koppy leaves Salford

    Koppy has been a great player for Salford, never gives anything but 100%. He is coming to the end of his career and has shown signs over wear and tear in the last year
  3. My husband had an accident with my camera whilst on holiday and I want to upgrade to a DSLR for a Fuji 5700. I want something that is easy to learn, has auto for when I feel lazy but has scope to grow with me. I am comparing Canon, Nikon, Olympus cameras and wanted any comments. Budget is around

    For me we need to start at the centre. The RFL need to employ marketing experts, decent press officers. They need to market the game at all levels and not just SL. Next we need to obtain agreement with SKY over moving fixtures, the situation with London and Toulouse games V Salford shouldn't happen. The profile of the game needs to be addressed and whilst most of us don't like celeb tv programmes many do. Salford have tried the theme games and the low cost for teams with no away support but you are only selling to the converted and risk alienating season ticket holders. What about an RL shop in places such as the metro centre, Trafford centre where you can buy tickets and merchandising with regular visits by "names" whether current or former stars.
  5. Had an odd thing happen today. Saw a Nuthatch trying to get into the bluetit nesting box, all of a sudden out flies bluetit and they fight over the box. This happened a number of times. Not seen this before, I assume they wanted to shelter from the wind.
  6. The Salford V Toulouse game didn't have footage on the screen even though it was in the ground.
  7. Well done London. Rowley found out yet again. Well coached by Danny Ward

    Hastings signs for?

    Hastings has a little it of the star quality about him. He has been involved in the community with good reports. as for the crowds much depends on how the team performs and whether they get any publicity. The local news didn't even mention this.

    Jackson Hastings

    At Salford for another year
  11. Like Murray maybe ??
  12. He is but we offloaded him to Widnes first, in a swap for Burke and Chamberlain Flanagan is a workhouse, and is under rated workload wise. A number of players are showing their age with more injuries. Not sure Mossop has many years left.
  13. Burgess retired nothing Salford could do about that. Hauraki was swapped for 2 players from Widnes and that looks like a good bit of business. Levi has played about 2 games and didn't look comfortable. Tasi is at best a squad player and probably expensive. Tungut is probably like for like swap. Lannon I am sorry to see go, product of the academy and just coming to his best years. Koppy looked as if he was retiring after the last game, but will be hard to replace. Griffin is an odd one, it feels like he gives away loads of penalties or drops the ball. may be mistaken. I'll wait to see who comes in first. Think we have a surplus of hookers too so expect some movement there.

    2019 Signings

    Not a great signing for an ambitious club. Squad player at best, failed at Saints last time he left Salford

    Joey Lussick confirmed 2 year deal today for Salford

    Jackson Hastings

    No I am saying that some clubs won't be good for his health. If he signed for Wigan and things went wrong it could mean trouble for him

    Jackson Hastings

    well he had England undies on the other night

    Mental health is more important than money, he should go where the pressures are less for the next year or so. Once he can deal with the pressure than chase the money
  19. The Willows was sold for Housing, the problem was one of the directors of Red City Developments becoming insolvent just as the saga of the stadium was finally sorted. This resulted in Peel walking in and taking over with the Council. To say the football teams have always been there and so isn't a factor is wrong. Money is tight and many people are deciding between football or rugby.

    Shame to see Ryan Lannon go, he has been improving each season and is still young in forward terms. Assume Rovers offered him a sweet deal. Not the way I wanted to start the off season

    Parachute Payment to Widnes

    I thought the payment was largely intended to be used to ensure the backroom staff, foundation staff, Kit men/woman and medical staff are retained and not necessarily spent on the playing staff. I guess that isn't new worthy.
  22. And Matty Gee plying tonight and Lee Jowett
  23. Salford actually have a few players in the team from the Academy, Josh Woods, Ryan Lannon, Nial Evalds, think Bibby might have as well. Then there is Ratchford at Wire and Fages at Saints.
  24. I see it is moan about Salford week. I'd say the Salford fans are anything but fickle, try supporting a team that has a drama after drama. It would be interesting how the clubs of the moaners would cope with even half of what Salford have had this year. I suspect their fan numbers would also dip.
  25. Well I don't care what you lot think😊 I am pleased with the result. Hastings ended up stripped down to under shirt and undies, no boots either. Burgess had a guard of honour. Game full of mistakes partly due to the rain pre game. Expect Hastings to sign for a team such as Wigan
