    Yorkshire Cup Final

    Flanagan was anonymous today aside from his indiscretions. Badly out of condition too. He's finished at this level.

    Paul Brearley signs

    A lad with all the skills. Based upon what he's shown so far, I'm struggling to see why he hasn't been signed by a pro club before now.

    Where he left off....

    Michael Booth was a fantastic player who is quite rightfully a club legend. Jouffret is a great prospect, but he's got a long way to go to even be mentioned in the same breath as Boothy.

    Ryan Carr, New Head Coach?

    No surprise that he has plenty of links to David Furner. Looks like Leeds are picking your coaching staff now, as well as your team.

    Batley Bulldogs

    I'm not all surprised by the increase in admission charges. When there are clubs which attract more than double our crowds yet are still charging higher admission fees than us, it's a no brainer.

    The 6'6 stand-off/loose-forward We have on trial from Rochdale Mayfield, Paul Brearley, looks like a super talent.

    Let's have a 'Who do you want our next coach to be' thread!!

    The new man will undoubtedly be a Leeds Rhino's stooge. They'll want their young players to be coached by someone of their choosing.

    Not quite sure how Keighley have found themselves in the mire again. They've been running with an inexpensive squad and a coach who will hardly have cost the worth. I'm assuming it's historical debt?

    It was time for Ainscough to go, I feel. Lots of effort, but not pacey enough to warrant a spot on the wing at this level these days. He seems to have been constantly injured over the past two seasons.

    Pre-season Yorkshire Cup

    The limited number of competitions in modern RL is, in my opinion, one of the reasons why fans have drifted away from the game. When I was a kid, we had the Yorkshire Cup, the Regal Trophy, Challenge Cup and Premiership to spice up the league season. IIRC, the Yorkshire Cup and the Regal Trophy were discarded at the behest of top flight clubs due to a concern that there were too many games across the season.

    Menzie Yere & family face deportation

    Some form of skullduggery clearly afoot here.

    Dave Scott and Michael Ward

    In my opinion, Scott should be one of the first two names on the Scotland teamsheet (alongside Danny Brough). The guy is a class act and ridiculously consistent.

    Bulldog Inbound = Joe taira

    Because they'll probably offer him more spondoolicks and maybe a full time deal?

    Bulldog Inbound = Joe taira

    Halifax or Featherstone.

    Bulldog Inbound = Joe taira

    Quite shocked by this news. My assumption was that Sheffield had signed every single available player outside of Super League.
