  1. IIRC correctly James Lockwood got a 2 year ban in March/April of 2015. Do the math as Americans say...
  2. Final score 46-4 and the last try of the match to Hardman.
  3. Half-time 26-0. Tries from Walton 2, Duckworth, Briscoe and of course Ian Hardman. Three goals from Briggsy.
  4. Teams are in. A few changes from last week....
  5. Looks like Briggsy's back... Strong side out again.
  6. Not sure if this thread is the right place, but..... The article that LTSS quoted was a piece I wrote about Featherstone familes some years ago. This is a longer obituary
  7. Sad news. Very good player. Rest in Peace.
  8. Rovers 52 Hunslet 6 final score
  9. Interesting. There was more solidarity between clubs in Lancashire? Perhaps also this led to a greater 'wastage' as more fledgling NU clubs seemed to disappear in Lancashire rather than Yorkshire. Perhaps not. In Yorkshire, are you saying that this push for P&R came pre 1895? I thought the RFU wanted nothing to do with any sort of 'league'. Or do you mean the NU? This whole period just seems to be an absolutely vital one in terms of the growth and development of RL. Obviously many mistakes were made by people & clubs working at cross purposes without really understanding what they were doing.
  10. Great lists. Thanks. What happened in Yorkshire in 1897/98 season?
  11. Your version reads so much better than the original. Well edited Maureen.
  12. Hunslet have named their team. Five ex-Featherstone players in there.
  13. First match of the year. Looking forward to it. The Gareth Swift Memorial Trophy. Jon Sharp says we're looking at a similar line up, so our three trialists will get another run out. NO Briggsy and no DR. I wonder if Walton will get a chance?
