  1. Correct. We seem to feel the need to re-list all the evils of DR every single week on here. Look at it this way. Use the Leeds lads while we can. Let Tagg get over his niggling injury and give a prop a rest. We'll need whoever misses out on Sunday fit and fresh for the fax Cup tie.
  2. Loving these snappy and efficient VR decisions.
  3. Bit of a bogey team for us the Eagles. Thacks still suspended and Walts and Frankie injured. Day is at the Rams, so Rovers have 19 players available. From Leeds, we can see Baldy, Jack O and Walters not making their 19 with Oledzki and Handley not forced to make the 17 either. Renunion day for Aston, Misi, Turner, JD, Keal, Knowlesy, and of course Briggsy if he's in favour.
  4. Technical issues. Then build up and speculation about two men who want to punch each other in the head for money. Any RL??
  5. To be fair, nobody can.
  6. Billionaire American's wife: "Where are we going on holiday honey? Maldives? Bahamas? Vegas?" Billionaire American: "Lincoln in England. We can have a look at the cathedral and then catch a game at Hull FC." Billionaire American's wife: "I'll pack the suitcases!"
  7. Dewsbury will be gutted.
  8. Yep. That was a fair old scrape. A mate of mine who works with concrete is preparing a bid for the rebuilding job. An electrical fault on the ship apparently.
  9. My tuppence worth. The disciplinary committee often get it wrong. There is plenty of room for improvement. The inconsistencies are maddening for fans. But.... There is no way on God's green earth that they are somehow biased against Fev (or any other club). They are just doing their job (not particualrly well at times).
  10. Of course. The situation with the resrves comp is a total shambles and a disgrace. Everybody apart from the top decsion makers at some SL clubs and the RFL think they should be brought back. But.... It's 2017. Fev are running a smallish squad that's already had a number of suspensions and injuries. At times we have really relied on Leeds which is not ideal as they can easily let us down because ATEOTD they are looking out for themselves. Hopefully 2018 will be different.
  11. I wouldn't disagree with that Phil, and said the same myself earlier. But the nightmare scenarios oulined by Rob L and Elppa above make you think. Giving a player half a game all season long then playing him the match before he goes out on loan doesn't make a lot of sense on the face of it. And if Briggs (I know he's a stand -off but all hookers & half-backs are pivots) is persona non grata, then it makes less sense still. We still have SIX wingers (Briscoe, Turner, Ducky, Johnson, Misi (not playing centre at the mo cos we've got three other centres) and Handley often) for just TWO places. But now we're going with just FIVE pivots for FOUR places every week?
  12. Aston in. Day in. Briggs out. Go figure.........
  13. Best rugby league autobiography ever, bar none...... Terry Clawson, all the wrong moves.
  14. That's fine then. Sam Day can go to Dewsbury now.
  15. Up for t'Cup this Sunday. So there'll be no Sam Day playing obviously Walts & Frankie injured. Thackers and Briscoe banned. No Leeds players except Aston perhaps? I don't know the set up with his loan deal. So my maths says that's 19 players left and that'll be the 19 for Sunday!
