    Catalans poised to defend challenge cup

    Good to see sense has prevailed and a bad decision re our continental neighbours has been reversed.

    Coronation Street

    Talking of Coronation Street, many years ago, I recall Ken Barlow mentioning he was taking one of his lady friends to a Salford Rugby League game. A true test of a relationship?

    Salford v Batley 1901

    Lovely stuff. Such atmosphere, thanks for sharing.

    Hemel pull out of League 1

    Sad news, whatever the spin put on it, but probably no real surprise. I hope they can use the opportunity to consolidate and rebuild as a proper home counties based side. It also completes the set of losses of the new tranche of clubs following Oxford and Gloucester. As a Coventry Bears fan i will miss the 'el classico' fixtures between the two clubs.

    Grand Final Crowd

    .....a great attendance. Much better than the other night's England soccer game. That stadium looked really empty. The seats were all in different colours to make it look less obvious but we Rugby League supporters aren't stupid and can spot an empty seat from a mile away.

    Catalan signing Matty Smith

    Just received their newsletter.... Les Dragons signent Matty Smith Les Dragons viennent d’officialiser la signature de Matty Smith pour les deux prochaines saisons. Agé de 31 ans, le demi de mêlée de St Helens, double vainqueur de la Super League et vainqueur de la Challenge Cup, est la deuxième recrue de Steve McNamara. L’ancien demi de mêlée international a remporté de nombreuses distinctions et compte plus de 270 matchs au plus haut niveau à son compteur. Il retrouvera donc de nombreux anciens coéquipiers aux Dragons et Steve McNamara avec qui il a travaillé avec l’équipe d’Angleterr

    23 Sept: The Betfred League 1 Match Thread

    This has to be the most complete 80 minute performance yet by the Bears. Superb defensive play, great game management, in control after five minutes and it stayed that way. A credit to the coach Tom Tsang who has overseen a steady and incremental improvement in the team. Next year should see more progress on the field and off. Attendance of 380 wasn't bad for a side starting the day in third bottom slot!!!!

    Blackpool Panthers??? Harlequins??? No Hemel or Cov, this can't be up to date.

    ‘League 1 South’

    Yes, they were great days and as truly amateur sportsmen we travelled over 200 miles, a journey of four hours or more, only to lose 116-0 at Plymouth!! And then come back late into the night. Halcyon did not fare so well against Northern competition the first time we played in the BARLA cup, we lost at home to Spotland Rangers 0-98. I found out afterwards the ref had ended the game a few minutes early to save total embarrassment of a three figure score. However, on a positive note we had a video made of the match, had a programme printed (i still have spare copies) and........... .............a crowd of over 200 spectators in Redditch. Happy days indeed!

    ‘League 1 South’

    Sounds to me like a reinvention of MASWARLA from the 1980s, of which Lionel Hurst was a prime architect. My team Redditch Halcyon were in it and there were teams from Gloucester, Cheltenham(Pittville), Hemel, Plymouth and Bristol, plus Uni/Poly based teams. And even West Midlands Police had a team.

    French Scene

    I went to the game v St Helens and we went to McDonalds before the game and the car park was packed like I have never known it. Then I saw all those people in red and yellow but not as we know it! The attendance at the USAP game was over 11,000 according to Midi Olympique. More than at Gilbert Brutus. Difficult to know how many of these would have come to Dragons had the fixtures not clashed. Does this add to the 'meaninglessness' argument against the Super 8s for 3 or 4 of the teams? Does it also suggest that clashes in fixtures should be avoided for all parties sakes? But couldn't be because of the lateness of 8s scheduling.

    What happens if the TV money drops????

    Or better still, take a look at the British Speedway fans forum. Guys on there really love talking about their misery, decline, endless rule and structure tinkering and of course their looming final demise. And a lot don't even attend any more!! 😂
  13. Depends who is refereeing!!! Yes, would be good to give some younger players a chance, especially as this is all academic now.

    Carcassonne plan for SL

    Any more news re Carcassonne?? In view of Catalans success and profile would be a shame of some of this didn't somehow rub off on Carcassonne......
  15. Went with the family and had a great day. Direct train to the Stadium from Solihull to Wembley, lunch and drinks at Las Iguanas in the London Outlet. Amazing game. Catalans dominant , then wobbly but determined. Such dogged defending. Surrounded by nice people of all allegiances. Great value tickets. And yes I and even my wife was a bit emotional at the end, especially having supported Catalans at that dreadful MPG last year, what a contrast! Only sadness is the woeful state of RL in Carcassonne and Lezignan's stand burning down. This win should be great for the game over there, and eventually for the entire game.
