  1. Featherstone, obviously. 😋 But in the real world, it's going to be Toronto, with Toulouse potential dark horses. Selfishly, I hope neither of them go up. I love the Toulouse away weekend and im sure I'll love Toronto later this year. 😁
  2. Nah, Sheffield never looked like winning. Really nasty spear tackle. Definite red. Scrappy game, awful conditions. Fev dominant throughout.

    M.O.M. Featherstone Rovers versus Sheffield

  4. Some cracking tries from Toulouse there. Had a fiver on them, so happy days😁 From the highlights, Toronto looked terrible, unfit and dis-interested. Has McDermott lost the dressing room already?

    Good signing. Remember the bants last year, thought he played it well. He's one of our own, exactly the kind of player I like to see in blue and white
  6. To be fair to Oxy, Halifax do play an astonishingly boring and niggly kind of Rugby. It's worked reasonably well for them recently in terms of results, but their crowds are flatlining at best. They seem to be unable to build on the success they've had and their recruitment this year smacks of a club trying to be mediocre. Personally (as a Fev fan), I think Marshall and the BOD are doing a great job. Long may it continue 😎

    Widnes problems

    I'd hazard a guess that this is one of the reasons you went bust in the first place. Everyone needs to be realistic about the future and I'd imagine that even considering remaining full time would land you back with the buckets back out quicker than you can say Bradford Bulls.

    It'd be a bit perverse if they didn't get a points deduction. Precedent has been set. Bradford fans would rightly be furious if Widnes were treated differently.

    Not looking good. James Gordon on Twitter just now: "It would appear that the consortium were still short of the administrators demands, staff redundancies and now sadly it seems some player exits trying to bridge that gap. Players have been called in individually for meetings now." https://twitter.com/jdgsport?lang=en
  10. I'm sure I remember seeing him argue about the merits of licensing and the perils of P&R before Bradford went boobs up.

    Each Teams Ground Ranked SL to League 1

    I left it off my list, because it's quite clearly a work in progress and I didn't want to be unkind. I think it's got potential to be a decent little stadium. It's way better than that dog track you played at, or Belle Vue

    My list of stadiums visited: 1. Headingley - Can't put my finger on it, but there's a certain magic about it. 2. LSV, fantastic facility and good atmosphere 3. Warrington, good modern stadium 4. Doncaster, great stadium. Shame it's never full 5. Trailfinders, delightful place to watch RL in the sunshine 6. Blagnac, lovely setting, a bit small but lovely beer terrace. 7. Featherstone. My spiritual home and much improved recently. Needs work on the PO Road end. 8. Dewsbury. Great Compact little stadium, recent addition of behind the stick terrace a big improvement. 9. Batley, worked wonders with little money. Fanzone and food are superb. Slope gives it massive character 10. Halifax, Bit of a pig to get to. Poor atmosphere. Skircoat Road stand not fit for human use. 11. Hull KR, nothing bad to say, but nothing good either 12. Huddersfield, nice stadium, poor atmosphere even when full (Eng v Ire, world cup) 13. Widnes, IKEA flat pack done on the cheap, boring. 14. Bradford, tired, dilapidated, cold, eye watering entry and food/drink prices 15. Sale(Swinton), Railway Sleepers for a terrace, poor atmosphere 16. Whitehaven. Dump 17. Castleford. Dump, asbestos roof 18. Wakefield, Dump, Deathtrap, needs condemning 19. Salford. Soulless, hard to get to, stinks of poo (being next to a massive sewage works).

    So when is D-Day?

    Ah right. The fenced off bit appears to be the parcel immediately to the post office road side of the green area, the bit that says "46m" on the map.

    So is the fenced off land the club's? I always thought the club's land was further up towards the railway.
