  1. Two youngsters to star for Toulouse

    Alot of youngsters around in the Championship this year Sion Jones 20 year old Prop for Halifax , Conor Mcgrath 21 winger for Fax.
  2. Jimmy Keinhorst goes on loan to Widnes..

    Like Halifax who run a reserve team some good youngsters Sion Jones, Connor Mcgrath and Chester Butler who have all forced their way into the 1st team this year and many more coming through.
  3. Sion Jones has signed a 2 year contract with Halifax RLFC.
  4. Wasps sniffing around Coventry Bears?

    If Coventry City cant afford to stay at the Richo then where are the Coventry Bears going to come up with that kind of money. Coventry city have a deal until 2019 paying £100,000 in yearly rent not sure how much bears get from RFL but i think its £70,000 that's 30K short before you start paying staff and players. i cant see how it works unless the rent is drastically reduced but i cant see wasps doing that if they get £100,000 from Coventry City already.
  5. GB Lions Squad

    Just being stupid probably what has this post got to do with the GB lions. Stephen Shingler played for the Wales under 20s and as Wales don't run an A side this is registered as the A side with the IRB. hence once you play for Wales under 20s you have therefore decided which country to commit your international future to. English, Scottish players play for their Countries A side they have also committed to that country for their international future
  6. GB Lions Squad

    Thank you Mr Bennett for allowing Wales, Scotland and Ireland to have some players involved in the GB lions squad how patronising. Pick the best side available and if that means 30 Englishmen then so be it. I'm sure players picked for this would want to be there on merit not just because you want to make it feel inclusive. I am a Welshman and i don't want to see our players given special treatment as i think this would be counter productive where as if they got there on merit then you cant say he's only there cos we have to have 3 Welshmen in the team. I think in the coming years Welsh players will be pushing for inclusion in the squad on merit as the youngsters coming through super league and the championship look exciting.
  7. Jimmy Keinhorst

    Fax have 5 boys currently from Leeds Beckett rl 4 on 1st team contracts and 1 with the reserves hopefully all will do well.
  8. Jimmy Keinhorst

    Well done Fletch at Leeds Beckett Uni bringing on some great talent wouldn't be surprised if the crop he has now has some potential Super League there.
  9. Dual Registration in 2018.

    You may want to think again as you welcome Widnes
  10. Talent coming out of Wales

    Good to see the Juniors being signed up and following the likes of Regan Grace at St Helens and you have Sion Jones, Connor and Curtis Davies who have signed 1st team contracts at Halifax RLFC and Marcus Webb at Swinton all the above players started their Rugby League careers in South Wales and have worked hard to get where they are now. I look forward to watching these boys and the young boys coming through in the next few years, it can only be good for Wales.
  11. commonwealth 9s

    The 9s tournament is actually taking place in Feb. The world is coming to Moreton Bay for the 2018 Rugby League Commonwealth Championships. The Rugby League 9's tournament will be held at Dolphin Stadium on 23 and 24 February 2018
  12. Toronto (Merged threads)

    That's 3 big forwards that have left also Dan Flemming who left for Halifax. Looking short on big forwards.
  13. Leeds Beckett at the moment have 4 Players with 1st team contracts at Halifax RLFC and 1 at Swinton Lions both teams are championship clubs. But like an earlier comment don't pick university on the Rugby League side pick the one with the best course.
  14. I ask the Question as Halifax have 4 or 5 youngsters who could push for the 1st team this year.
  15. 2018 prospects

    I think 20 year old Sion Jones will show well this year at Halifax RLFC after a good Pre-Season. with a really good performance against Featherstone Rovers on the Weekend.
