    Bulls 20 Rams 18

    Not the greatest game by any means, but plenty to be encouraged by........... BUT, why oh why do we still have the habit of giving away needless penalties, late in the tackle count, or when we have the opposition pinned in their own 20 for example............... We did exactly that tonight to hand the game to Bradford. It's been a disease through Morrison's & Kelly's reigns............can we please not have it as a mark of Lee Greenwood's tenure ? Owen Harrison was stand out tonight (IMO) and Ryder looked really strong.......... Knowles and Sykes have big parts to play for us this season.........so why play them both but leave out Simon Brown and Andrade .............. Just a question, and perhaps Knowles & Sykes will be 'rested' next week......... Overall, though,I think we have reasons for cautious optimism...........and, I'm confident we won't be anybody's whipping boys this season !!!! I like the new Yorkshire Cup concept and, with a bit of fine tuning, believe it can become a very welcome addition to the RL Calendar............ If only the Bradford fans would realise they're NOT SL anymore and don't have a divine right to ALL decisions going their way ..........

    Yorkshire Cup - not bothered?

    Yorkshire Cup - not bothered?

    From what I'm seeing on other sites, it looks like there's a "double header" at FEV next Saturday..............(FEV v Parkside and Halifax v Hunslet) with us playing at the BULLS on Saturday and Dogs v York on Sunday.............. My question then (which I've posted on Dogs forum) is how the "all games" ticket works..........Unless the games at FEV finish in time to then travel to Bradford for a 5-30pm kick off....... Why not another 2 double-headers again ???

    Yorkshire cup tickets

    I'm a bit confused.......... The "all games" ticket can't apply IF what I'm reading is correct......... the Bradford-Dewsbury game is being advertised as next Saturday.........as is the "double-header" at FEV....??? I would have interpreted the all-games ticket offer as covering all 12 games of the Competition............. Am I mistaken ???

    Nice win rams

    I watched both games today, and would say that all four teams took their 'friendlies' seriously !! ......... I don't know how strong, or otherwise, the FEV team was but it was a hard fought, full-blooded contest with a good atmosphere and a decent crowd. All in all, I would say a very promising start for the Competition concept........... Hope tomorrow at Odsal goes as well. A win's a win and in only Greenwood's second game in charge, he's got us in to a semi-final...... 😊

    BARLA Yorkshire cup final

    That was a "value for money" afternoon........... Two properly contested games with West Hull taking the U-18's Cup (vs Siddal) and Lock Lane eventually wearing down Upton....... It was 38-20 to Lock Lane when I left with 5 mins to go....... If that was Sowerby at No.7 -- he looked good in patches but discipline problems and 'disappearing' let his game down a bit. Well done all 4 teams though

    Yorkshire Cup - not bothered?

    Can't see anything on the FEV forum............. There's a post on YORK's forum trying to drum things up a bit.......... And they're playing the Amateur team................. Good to see someone trying ---- Bet the sponsors are thrilled !!!

    Yorkshire Cup - not bothered?

    For anyone thinking of parting with 15 quid just after Christmas, it certainly doesn't 'sell' the game does it ?? We really should be talking this up: Double-header, first game at home this year, brand new competition, players fighting for a starting jersey etc etc Let's just hope FEV are doing their bit and they bring a fair few across.......
  9. Don't think we should be too downhearted after today's first run out for the 'new' team.......... Plenty of signs of potential (who was our No.30 - thought he had a strong game).... Was it Hallas or Andrade in 16 ??........ Who ever it was, he looked impressive. Some silly penalties, especially first half, and sloppy acting half-back work cost us a bit but would expect the latter in first pre-season game. Think a 16-16 draw would have been a fair result but the 'double-movement' decision against Adam Ryder cost us a share of the spoils.......... Think 1703 as the attendance is about right and a good exercise for both clubs all round............. Good to see the 'new' team and the shirts look good -- Onwards & upwards

    Boxing Day

    Any talk of 'boycotting' the game is just sad.......... The game is struggling badly enough and our two Heavy Woollen clubs will be feeling the pinch as much as anyone, so let's either get on board and support the game for what it is -- a much-needed fund raiser for both sides. £20 is steep for a pre-season friendly.........No argument in that perspective, BUT it's a chance for a lot of us to get some fresh air and peace & quiet after the extremes of Christmas Day.......a lunch time kick off with the festive feel, a chance for those who want to to enjoy a sesh afterwards (how much will that cost ??) OR sufficient time to get back to the family and carry on 'enjoying' Christmas family time. It is what it is -- Support it or don't support it but PLEASE cut out the garbage about boycotts..... What are you going to do instead -- Head to the pub and do an extra twenty quid's worth (PLUS) of damage to your livers.... ??? Happy Christmas everyone

    The Dewsbury Faithful update

    Hi Coolie.......... A bit off-topic to start with, but I sponsored Gaz Moore last season and, unless I've missed an invite somewhere, I've not been offered a signed shirt for my sponsorship................. 😞 Given that it was a relative waste of money (thanks, Gaz - for nothing !!) and IF I should be entitled to a signed shirt (or, preferably, unsigned ) then I would be more than happy to donate said shirt to The Creat Project. If the club could enlighten us then I'll (hopefully) sort out getting the shirt to you.
  13. Just read on Bulls forum that Rams will hold a double-header on Saturday 5th January.......... York playing Keighley then Rams playing Fev Can't see anything on RAMS website -- does anyone have any further info ???

    Steve Lingard - Passed Away

    Sad to see on Fev Rovers forum that ex-Dewsbury player Steve Lingard has passed away.............. Remember him, I think, from the mid-70's and might have been the replacement for Alan Agar at stand off................ R.I.P. sir
