  1. It was a disappointing game for the neutral last night but Coventry were dominant right from the off. They capitalised on the errors and scored some nice tries. Cov didn't really need to do anything special, they were solid and have some impressive players. congrats to them for the 4 in a row. As for the Raiders, well, oh dear. Having been a ST holder for the All Golds I knew a couple of their players. I may be biased but they seemed like the only players who knew how to play. Too many soft tackle attempts. They need more experienced players to help the new lads along. I don't know how they keep going, they have big hearts. As a side, for those who have watched League 1 in recent years know what a threat Steve Parry is at hooker, scored plenty, set plays up and got the team moving forward. In my opinion he is wasted in the halves. hopefully both teams will continue to grow.
  2. Interesting game in West Wales this weekend. should be quite a good game. I see that West Wales have made a few more experienced signings recently with a few more likely to be on the way. Sod it, I'm going for a Raiders win this weekend. Mainly because they have a growing number of ex All Golds

    This may be a silly question so forgive me. Do Swindon train and work as one big squad with the teams changing from week to week or are they pretty settled teams throughout the season?

    Going back to the Sonics, there is a very good interview with Phil Cole on the League One Show podcast this week which is well worth a listen

    As a former All Golds season ticket holder I was excited to see the name back and to go to see my first game of the season tomorrow, both the new club and at this level. This sad news and reading the posts above definitely puts another spin on it. The AG/OX merger was never and is never going to happen. It has been mentioned on twitter about aggressive recruitment by the All Golds, excuse my ignorance but what can clubs offer that would make a player decide to go elsewhere? I do hope that this isn't the end of the Sonics

    Garry Lo leaves Cas

    He mentioned on the 6 till 8 debate that he needed to play games to help with his work permit and Bradford offered him the chance. Was a month minimum i believe with no call back or he might have gone back earlier.

    Heard rumblings about this and then saw their fixtures. Having had a season ticket with the now defunct All Golds I look forward to the new season. Its a level of rugby I haven't seen before so really interested to see how it goes.

    Is Steve Parry one of the injured players? Not seen his name for a couple of weeks. Very big player for you, shame is being used in the halves and not at hooker. I agree with the worrying scorelines but my hat goes off to the players as it's can't be good for their confidence but will keep going.

    Weekend Events, will you be going?

    So far two things are standing out with this poll. The majority that have voted will no be attending either event and forum members are exercising their right to vote (or not) with only 41 votes from 480+ views. Shame about the Summer Bash as the championship is quite exciting this year and with Leigh improving the Toronto game will be a good one. My weekend ticket was £24 and my accommodation is about £60, granted it's not the Ritz, beer is cheaper in the ground, £3 a pint last year. Having said that i'm not going with a family so can do things on the cheaper side. Magic is also a great weekend that I have been to a number of times but unfortunately unable to make it this year.
  12. With the attendance of weekend events always questioned. I was curious if fellow forum members are attending this year? Feel free to say why or why not. (sorry this is posted again there was a small error)

    Is the Summer Bash destined to be a flop?

    Do you feel that having the Bash a week before the Magic Weekend has a big knock on effect? The price of the tickets are a bargain and the Championship is going well this year. I don't have a team at the Bash but i'm travelling up from Worcester because it's a good laugh and a chance to see teams i wouldn't normally see. Why don't more neutrals go? People complain about attendances for all RL events but don't go themselves Would be interesting to see a Poll on here of those who are attending either Bash, Magic, Both or none.

    Grady leaves North Wales Crusaders (Merged Threads)

    Surprised he's gone back but he helped the All Golds last season and by all accounts was a popular bloke. All the best to the Cru fans.
