  1. Hilarious thread. Pseuds' Corner is alive and well. Not a can of Fosters or a delivery pizza to be seen.
  2. Scrappy niggly match from both teams: hands on the ball, crusher tackles, etc. Warrington should be much better than this, Wigan probably can't.
  3. Still fully committed to this Magic afternoon. Mate, give us a shout when the Hull FC game kicks off.
  4. Good start that. Credit to both teams. Beer & snacks levels good. Kick on now through the commentators babble to Game 2.
  5. Fridge full of ale. Snacks to hand. Strap yourself into your armchair. Seven hour TV rugby league marathon coming up. Only for the fittest. Bring it on.
  6. One way of looking at it is that Fev are a bit out of step with other clubs or 'missing a trick' compared to those who charge extra for sitting down. Those clubs run out-of-date stadiums where standing is the norm and seating is at a premium. However, lots of sports clubs, including Featherstone Rovers and all premier league soccer clubs have moved on from the 70s and 80s and accept that these days folk expect to sit down when they pay in to watch a sports event. Rovers have the added advantage of still offering standing room for those who prefer it. Post Office Road. The best of both worlds. Enjoy the game everyone.

  8. For fans of rugby league heritage, don't forget the blue plaque on the pub now called Last Orders but previously known as the Railway. It's on Station Lane near to the turn off to Post Office Road. The plaque commemorates the place where Featherstone Rovers were founded. Once inside the ground, the clubhouse also hosts the hall of fame and the club shop has a display cabinet with interesting historical items. With regards to chippies, my vote would go to the Marlborough on Pontefract Road near to the Junction pub. For beer, drink in the clubhouse to help the club. But there will doubtless be better quality supping to be done elsewhere.....
  9. The Peter Fox Memorial match. Lovely idea from the club, I hope this gets up and running as a regualr thing whenever the two clubs meet. We look better than we have for ages. Really developing now. Weve got a trim 18 man squad of our own (Tom Holmes included in that) plus a pretty regular trio of Leeds players who look very much at home too. Add in Dale Ferguson if/when fit and we are really solid, especially upfront. This weeks 19? NOt sure if Fergie is actaully fit yet. Maybe not. With Bussey and Teteh out for a while, the 19 and then the 17 picks itself, unless someone got a knock at Blackpool (Walters?) Huge game for Fev this. Played 2 lost 2 to Bradford. Both games we should've won and got pipped by a point. We have 13 games left and perhaps 8/9 wins will give us a spot in the top five. That means results against the likes of Bradford, Leigh, Sheffield, Halifax, Widnes, etc. as well as the bottom five obviously. Up The Rovers
  10. Fair do's about the NRL mantra we hear at times. But you need to scroll back to find out that my first NRL reference was in response to your dig about Merrins job previous to the one where Leeds let him pinch money.
  11. What point are you making? That is was a good game? Or pretty good compared to the NRL.? I'm no massive fan of the Aussie game but Cas on this form would surely be about the bottom of the NRL so where does that leave Leeds?
