    I wasn't referring to the official on Sunday . I was saying as a whole we seem to get bad calls during a matches

    Super Sunday

    Super Sunday

    Looking at the fixture list this Sunday . The Top two teams in the League are at home , then the next four teams are away. looking at who plays who its very hard to predict what the positions will be after Sunday . I would like to see ,and its hard for me to say this , a Whitehaven win ,Doncaster wont like traveling to the Rec . Newcastle v Oldham is going to be hard to call a winner . York should see off Hunslet. Then Bradford v Town . Town have got to be the underdogs . but sometimes the underdogs come up with a surprise . So lets hope we widen the points difference with the Teams below us COME ON LADS YOU CAN DO IT. UTT

    Bradford Predictions

    My concern is the Ref some of the decisions what go against us ,you would think they don't want us to go up a league . any 50 50 call its unusual for us to get it . We all know its going to be difficult . But if Town play there sets out , and don't give any silly penalty's away .and get in there faces , there is always a chance . Catalan showed Saints that . So come on TOWN just show them, that they, will have to be at there best to beat you .

    PUTTING TOWN ON SOCIAL MEDIA

    After last Sundays match against Keighley , my Daughter later that night went on Towns website and watched the video of the Players , Coach ,and Backroom Staff coming over to the Fans on the popular side of the ground to celebrate the victory. she thought the excitement , and atmosphere it showed it would be a good idea to put the Video on a non rugby site called Workington Rants to show people what there missing on Sundays watching the Town playing rugby .Within two hours 2.400 people had viewed this video, with the hope that some who viewed this ,would think I might just give that a try, it looks exciting . If only one or two go down to watch a match its been worthwhile . Town need new supporters which also generates more income , so if anyone else knows of any websites that Town's video's could go on it could be beneficial to the club . Get down you don't know what your missing UTT.

    Coventry Predictions

    Don't think they will get much confidence, whatever the score against a team of Coventry's capabilities . Its a game where we are expected to win easily . If you play a top team and win ,that can give you confidence going into the next game . What you can do playing a lesser team is try the moves that you practice in training ,and that didn't come off. As in the 1st half against Keighley . hoping they do come off when we play Bradford the week after . Catalan Dragons should give them confidence the way they stuffed Saints,
  8. Its easy to blame the people at the helm of RFL for the state the games in today , and to some extent its true . They don't promote or sell the game to the public . Ask any kid to name a player from all the Super League Teams and they would struggle . Saturdays Challenge Cup Semi Finals were an example of that . playing a double header show piece , and guess what ,League 1 had fixtures that day . But its not all there fault .Today's environment is so different to years ago , Kids played out all the time ,not stuck in the house on computers and X Boxes ,and to be honest a lot parents want to know where there Kids are this Day and Age . There are that many distractions, to stop them wanting to play out with a ball.So as they grow up ,they don't want to get into playing Rugby . Look at the state of the Amateur game ,Clubs dropping out because they were unable to raise a team some weekends , they would rather go down the Pub and watch a football match. So whats the answer .In my opinion the grass roots and Semi Pro clubs need looking at ,and more MONEY put back into it rather than giving the Super League Clubs a bigger share of the pot . Super League will die if the grass roots are cut off . Reserve team football at every club would be a big help ,An Amateur player at the moment who signs for a Pro club ,if they are not in the squad to play at the weekends ,dont get any action for weeks , and just get sick of it all either pack the game in totally ,or go back playing for there Amateur clubs .Years ago players playing in the reserve team for there Pro club would try there hardest to impress the Coach to get into the 1st team . And if a local lad is playing for the 1st team , His friends ex team mates and family would go to watch ,which would generate more revenue to the clubs . If kids see a local player doing well it might get them interested in seeing that there is something to aim for , But i do think the top brass need to promote the game better ie TV coverage , Advertising , Players more exposure , Daily Papers are very poor ,sometimes you have to search the paper for a report . So come on get your fingers out ,and start promoting this GREAT GAME ,before its to late

    Falling gates in Rugby League

    Its easy to blame the people at the helm of RFL ,for the state the games in today ,and to some extent its true .They don't promote or sell it to the public ,Ask any kids to name 3 players in any Super League team and they would struggle . Saturdays Challenge Cup was an example of that . But its not all there fault ,todays environment is so different to years ago , Kids played out all the time ,there was no Computers, Xboxes etc .which kept them in the house. and to be honest a lot of parents want to know where there kids are this day and age. There are that many more distractions to stop kids wanting to play out with a ball . So as they grow up they don't want to get into playing rugby ,look at the state of the amateur game , teams dropping out , clubs unable to raise a team some weekends .they would rather go down the pub and watch a Football match on the TV . So what's the answer , In my opinion the grass roots need looking at ,and more MONEY put into it rather than the Super League wanting a bigger share . Super league will die if the grass roots are cut off . Reserve team football for each club would be a big help. An amateur player at the moment who signs for a Pro club, if there not in the squad to play at the weekend, sometimes don't get any action for weeks ,and just get sick of it all . so end up going back to play amateur Rugby .Years ago players in the reserve team tried there hardest to impress the Coach to get into the 1st team . If a local lad is doing well in the pro game , his friends and ex team mates and the public would go to watch . and this would increase the gates . and this would maybe get the kids more interested and something to aim for . I've mentioned before about clubs getting into Schools . but that is up to the individual clubs , But I do think the Top Brass need to promote the game more ,ie TV coverage, Advertising, Players more exposure , Daily Papers are very poor, sometimes you have to search for a report . So come on get your fingers out and start promoting this great game .Before its to late

    Squad for Keighley

    With JP, Tyler Dickinson ,Cain Barnes not mentioned does that mean with there injuries that they are out long term , and wont be in the running to be in the squad . Scott was out there today so was he just carrying a slight knock.

    Squad for Keighley

    Leon said on the radio, that apart from Stevie who got a bang in the sternum, and Perry near full fitness , we should have a near full squad to pick from next week . So does that include Carl Olstrum because there was no mention of him , He served his one match ban last week , So what was wrong today , he wasn't even in the squad to play .

    Liam Finn

    Your right just looked on the BBC sport website . whenever I've seen him playing for Wakefield this season he as played well , couldn't understand why they let him go to Widnes . Unless there is a motive behind the move , Widnes and Salford have strengthened in the last couple of weeks . maybe the rest of the super league clubs, don't fancy a trip to Toronto if they get into the final of the qualifiers and win it . ( just a thought ! ) .

    Liam Finn

    Did he not play for Widnes last week, on loan to the end of the season . then going back to Wakefield on the coaching staff for next season . If its true Towns match against them as been made a whole lot harder

    Remaining Fixtures predictions

    Looking at Doncaster's and Oldham's remaining fixtures, its going to be a close call who finishes in the top 4 , think it depends on how they get on when the Top teams play each other . looks like it 2 from 4 ,as Bradford and York will occupy the top 2 spots .
