  5. Barrow v Whitehaven

    Apologies didn't wait around for presentation / explanation. Banner says League 1 Shield winners but didn't Hunslet win that? So what was the Cup? "Asking for a mate"

    Don't let the facts interfere with a good story. LOL
  7. Craven Park

    New floodlights were installed to get CP up to a 'standard'. I'm assuming the ground is now good enough for the Championship ?
  8. Super 8s

    Carry your bag Sir?
  9. Fixtures-Phase 2

    I assume it's the same format this year?
  10. Look on the bright side

    Good thing is the Raiders v Crusaders are the first to play, could be a bit clarty by teatime, then three games on Sunday.
  11. Players Visas for Toronto trip

    Let's assume the Wolfpack get promoted to the Championship.Unlike in League 1 it won't be the luck of the draw who travels to Canada as all teams play each other home and away.At the start of this season, as a reader of the weekly RL papers I thought trips to Toronto were to be fully expensed, information that seems to have been a 'political truth'. In the coming close season Championship clubs need to find out what the financial arrangements will be for next year; if they need to fund a trip for 30+ club staff they'd best start saving up now.And visas, well there's an issue, I think I've seen reports it took from October to May for the Wolfpack to get one antipodean's - so again Championship clubs had best start investigating now.In the Challenge Cup, will they be in the hat? If so will there be an obligation to play their first game away, but with a possibility for any subsequent games at Lamport and another expensive trip for a club?The Wolpack are a full time team, many Championship clubs are part time they need to be aware of the additional time off work from regular jobs needed for the away games. I'm sure that League 1 club officials can add to this list. It's good to expand the best game in the world but there have been unintended/unexpected/unplanned difficulties - just sad that the experiment and cost had fallen on the shoulders of clubs least able to bear the load.And in passing, the Raiders too might gain promotion, are they prepared for the above and can they afford it?+++++++++++Good to see the Raiders flag on the terraces at Lamport, wonder how many travelling fans the Wolfpack have, and I don't mean from their Yorkshire base?+++++++++++
  12. Re-arranged Keighley away fixture

    Catalans away Sat 13th must be worst case scenario, t'RFL couldn't enforce it, could they?
  13. Games played

    I make it the Raiders played 29 games in season 2015/6 including friendlies, League and Cup matches, 16 were home fixtures 13 were away. In 2016/17 it's looking like 26 total, 17 home, 9 away plus a possible additional 2 Cup games (fingers crossed) and 7 end of season League games making a final tally of 35. Must be good for the coffers. Anyone know what the Ipro Cup is worth to winners / runners up?
  14. League 1 Show

    Ben, Have you interviewed Toronto yet, can't recall? On the RLONRY (rugby league on Radio Yorkshire) podcast it was said by the presenters Toronto would be paying accommodation but not expenses. Wondered if this was a change from what clubs had been promised expected? i seem to recall York only taking 12 players to Toulouse last year and though that was because of injury I'm wondering what the knock on might be if part time players are having to take holidays and then be out of pocket. only asking David Taylor
  15. Ipro Cup

    Gloucester had a home draw but chose to play at Town, possible reason for the confusion?
