  1. I've been to the last couple of these Jo Cox memorial games, and if there's ever been a cause to support and attend then, for me, this is it. AND, dare I say it, I will actually be cheering on the Dogs as well .......... That wouldn't be the case if it was anyone but Sheffield, might I add If you can, get yourselves down there for the afternoon.......... Show a bit of solidarity for the day
  2. Can I suggest you put these details on the Dewsbury forum as well ?? We're in TORONTO that weekend so, hopefully, a number of RAMS fans will get their Rugby 'fix' at what is a very worthwhile and notable event........ I've attended the last two (as well as other Batley games as part of the Season Ticket agreement) and found them extremely well organised with a unique atmosphere.......... Go on -- We're not all bad over't hill
  3. I was talking to someone the other day about Maurice Bamford....... Recalling how, as an eleven year old, I went to a Saturday morning training session at Saville Town which Maurice headed up......... He asked the question "What does practice make?" and we all, of course, replied "Perfect".......... "Wrong !!" he snarled at us -- "PERFECT practice makes perfect..........If you're doing it wrong, there's no point keep doing it wrong"........... Always remembered that and tried to apply it in different ways through my life. Sadly, the last time I saw him, he was greeting people at ASDA Morley, trying to entice them to buy wine.........that was after his days as GB Coach, TV commentator and Head Coach at a number of clubs....... Believe he was our Assistant Coach in 72/73 as well. Great guy -- R I P Sir
  4. I'm not sure a change of venue would help..........If you're making a weekend of it, where else would you take it without making it a lot more expensive ?? York, Newcastle, Manchester....... All feasible but costly.......... What might help would be to make it the 1895 Trophy Round 2 Weekend, with all Round 2 fixtures being played over the 2 days instead of an extra League fixture.......... More publicity/focus maybe for the 1895 Trophy and freeing up a weekend for Round 3 rather than playing it midweek ?? AND the league itself isn't skewed by an extra game that can often favour some teams and not others...........
  5. Any 'insult' was meant towards Leeds Rhinos after their inept display against Bulls........... It was an attempt at humour - nothing else.... and certainly not an insult to Equalizer..................... Though I will admit to being confused by his original post........ His follow-up post (now removed) was unfounded in the very least and thankfully has now been edited...... Moving on........ There's a game on Sunday isn't there........... Which I won't be attending :: Part-time fan who unbelievably is taking a holiday in Turkey when there's a game....... Shame on me
  6. Think he might be a Rhinos fan ..... ☺☺
  7. Doesn't seem to be much chat about the Challenge Cup game against Fax ...... Anyone bothering to turn up ???
  8. Surprised that there's no mention of this on the Rams website............. Is it not something we're that bothered about ?? A brand new competition, with a more realistic chance of a Wembley appearance .......... Doesn't augur well if we've so little interest......
  9. Perhaps, BSJ, people are abiding by the old adage.......... "If you can;t say something good, don't say anything" There's not much good happening right now, is there ?? Performances are poor, we're bringing in different loan players every week, we got beaten (and bullied) by Batley......... and the info on players' injury progress (e.g. Sykes) appears non-existent from the club..... Paying spectators like to know what's going on but we're being given the Mushroom treatment again.............. Deja vu ?????
  10. Well done : You guys fully deserved that win tonight..........
  11. 8:00pm kick off............. Sensible decision or bad choice ?? Guess there'll be the usual for's & against's............. but it does seem to be a favourite of ours for Challenge Cup games........ guess it must have been financially sensible for previous games ? If both teams go for it, it could be a cracking cup tie !!!
  12. CAS or HULL away would probably give us the bigger "pay day"............ don't think we'll have come out of the first 2 games with any additions to the coffers.................. Otherwise, Doncaster at home to give us best chance of a last 8 spot
  13. The Thatto Heath game will be shown on BBC Website 3pm Sunday 14th April ..... Would there be any mileage in opening the Bailey Bar or Royal Suite and showing it ??
  14. The lad who played full back last week must be feeling a bit peeved........ And what's happened to Garratt ???? Has Kibula's sending off not been dealt with by the disciplinary yet ??.......... Would be very annoying if it comes back as "Sending off sufficient" (though not surprising IMO)
  15. You've a lot of unhappy, disgruntled fans up there at the moment...........and, having watched you today and against Rochdale, I can understand why.......... I said to one of your fans at the side of me, that watching Batley now is like watching Dewsbury when Morrison was in charge............ It's dire -- The players are trying, and work hard on defence, but ball in hand there is nothing -- No attacking threat, even less attacking ideas, lack of pace and a poor, repetitive kicking game......... It baffled me why you didn't take the 2 points on offer near to half time........ You could have gone in 10-2 down : Instead it went to 16-0 and game over...... Bradfordjust kept you at bay in the second half. How Lillycrop got a yellow is beyond me, by the way. Your squad, in potential at least, is so much better than the current performances........... Funny, but Morrison always blamed the players as well........... Must be an ex-Bradford thing.
