  1. According to Koukash on Twitter they're a bunch of thugs and he doesn't want them in SL. Sounds like Rowley has influenced them already
  2. Fev 1st, if we need him then so be it
  3. Well done, not easy to beat a SL team regardless of how they are going in the league. 2 down already
  4. I understand that Mark, hopefully we won't pick up more injuries or bans. The big debate is whether the RFL mandate that clubs should run reserve teams. Funding needs to be available but I believe all clubs should have them. That way there is a place for squad members to get a game and youth to step up. As we've heard recently though the RFL won't stand up to the SL clubs so there's no chance of them enforcing it in the Championship
  5. The club are doing the right thing. Sam needs game time and isn't getting it at Fev, We have no reserve team now so what else can he do? I'd rather him go away on loan for a month then if we do need him he'll be match fit and ready. In the meantime we should have enough cover. The alternative is that Sam sits out his contract then moves on to another club at the end of the season as he will want to be playing
  6. Just seen it myself and agree it was harsh. Let's see what the RFL make of it, hopefully common sense will prevail.
  7. I agree they can't see everything hence why I said there is a need for them. I just think they are ruling on some things that have already been dealt with by the referees on the pitch that don't necessarily need further action. 2-3 for a deliberate trip is harsh in my opinion. The referee only gave a yellow not a red so obviously saw it and didn't think it was worthy of a red
  8. David, to be honest I didn't see the tackle but the disciplinary committee seem hell bent on dishing out punishments for things that were dealt with on the field of play by the referees and it is ruining the game. I agree there is a need for them but 2-3 games for tripping which Thacks is facing seems to be way over the top so there might have been nothing in it but we now have to wait for the panel to pass judgement.
  9. Cooper Aston Turner
  10. Makes the decision to rest some players against Dewsbury look like a bad call. It's good that expectations are high but sometimes the reality doesn't match those expectations. He probably needs time which might mean this season is a write off as far as the top 4 is concerned.
  11. Great first 40. Not sure what to make of the second, did we just switch off, were Bradford the better side or is it because we were playing with 12 men for 15 minutes? Our discipline went out of the window but we've got the 2 points and move on. Just hope Misi doesn't pick up a ban
  12. Hate to say it but again ill-discipline has crept in again today. It's a good job we had a big lead because we've spent 15 minutes of that second half with only 12 men on the pitch. I know some of the decisions from the ref were wrong but what the hell was Bostock playing at throwing the ball away? What was it going to gain us? We were in control and it was stupid. We could be losing Misi to a ban now, given the disciplinary panel's record it wouldn't surprise me. In that second half we switched off and the penalties crept in which is a shame because we gave the Bulls plenty of field position to exploit.
  13. We used to post abroad, not sure if the new regime still do but worth asking
  14. Been working away a lot so had to travel on Sundays. Really looking forward to today, have a good feeling that we will have enough to see the Bulls off
  15. Only my third game of the season, the previous being Oldham and Rochdale so looking forward to seeing Fev play some decent rugby
