    2019 Squad and signings

    Not being funny but is that it? Waited all week with baited breath for a great announcement, only to come up with a player who wasn't a regular at Doncaster.

    Heard that Ben Heaton has replaced Grimmer at Hunslet - I feel a better choice gone elsewhere,

    Without wishing any ill, what would happen if something happened to CH? What would the RL do?
  5. Anything to get Bradford in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. The sooperdooperleague and the RL want Bradford to go up so sadly there is only one winner. Good luck to Workington

    Moving forward. Langers has gone and good luck to him. The question I am posing is "who do we want to retain from last year's team to give us a realistic chance of promotion?"

    Parachute Payment to Widnes

    Rugby is a business like any other and if you can't succeed then sadly you go to the wall. So many RL clubs have gone over the years and lots of top companies outside of RL have also ceased to trade. But the RL, by all accounts strapped for cash, find HALF A MILLION POUNDS to bail out a failed company. Their players failed and as a consequence they should carry the can. For them to carry on as full time players is a mockery and again is grossly unfair to clubs operating within their budgets being unable to compete on an even playing field ie. full time professionals. If a team is relegated IT IS THEIR FAULT and no one else's and as a consequence suffer the consequences.
  9. Heard on the radio coming back from Bradford that Widnes are going to receive £500,000 parachute payment. Surely this can't be true? I feel for Widnes but their relegation is of their own making, they just weren't good enough to be in SL. Like any business that finds itself in financial difficulties they have to deal with it themselves not beg for money. Surely, Widnes are a business and they should sort out their own mess like lots of other clubs have done over the years. The argument is going to be given "What about the contracted players?" It's them who got the club relegated and like any employee when a firm goes bust they are made redundant. Sadly, it's the RL yet again looking after "The Club".

    Who will replace Nelmes and Davies on the bench? I would go all out and have as many attack minded players as possible irrespective of size. Odsal is a massive pitch so plundering down the middle can't be an option that's why I am suggesting an attack mentality from everywhere - nothing to lose but so much to gain. We gave them 24 points at our place but showed what the Yeds are made of by nilling them with 12 men. Question as always, who's the man in the middle?.

    Big Ben, Nelmesy and Hooley.....

    Confusion rules OK! Will the three of them be playing against Bradford after we have beaten London???????????

    Great to nil Bradford in the second half - just a shame the Yeds made those stupid mistakes to let them back into the game. The effort put in by the whole team was incredible and fully deserved the ovation they got at the end. Just saddens me to think that if they played like they have for the last two games where we would be in the league, definitely not 5th with a trip to Bradford in the playoffs. The Bulls supporters are probably the best supporters I have come across in over 50 years of watching our great game. They enjoyed the banter, they appreciated the effort put in by both sides, agreed when the ref made some stupid decisions, in a nutshell they know what our great game is about - having a great day out enjoying each other's company and watching two sides standing toe to toe knocking seven colours out of each other! Couldn't see who got sent off, and I can't find out. With two out for the rest of the season we are right down to the bones.

    What's the maximum number Vestacare can hold? Considering how important this game is to both clubs, I can see Bradford supporters coming over here for tickets and the gates closing leaving many outside. I agree with MR it's going to be bedlam. Who's the ref????

    Thanks for the info.
