    Hemel pull out of League 1

    Swansea Jack has just said one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard. West Wales have made progress on the field!! They were beaten 6 times by 100+ points how is that progress. They have signed no names which doesn’t mean much although might mean they can put a 17 man squad out every week which will be an improvement. I don’t think signing a 19 year old halfback from Western Australia would be considered a marquee signing!!

    What's happening at the Skolars?

    I think we will struggle to finish in front of Coventry and West Wales. I dread to think we could be in line for the wooden spoon.

    Hemel pull out of League 1

    It was nothing to do with the merger with Hull Sharks this was well after the merger/takeover it was due to most of their players and coach living in Hull I was told

    Hemel pull out of League 1

    I know Hemel’s training base was based in Dewsbury and Sheffield to attract players. Probably the same reason Crusaders train in Widnes and Toronto base themselves in Manchester half the season which is further away then Hemel to Sheffield. I can even recall Newcastle thunder training in Hull most of the the week too. At Skolars we have always had a good training base in Wood Green and it’s been returbished recently which is a positive. We have had many northern based players in our squad over the years and they either just play for us on a weekend without training or get the train down for training once a week. That’s what is fans have been told about certain players

    Hemel pull out of League 1

    What What can be positive when the players show no passion and pride for the shirt these past 2 seasons. We only finished above west wales and Hemel what is positive about that. We probably spent 3 times as much money as the clubs we finished above and probably 3 times as much money as Coventry who finished above us on the table. It’s a worry when broncos players refuse to even come to us on duel reg and go to other clubs

    A lot of the Skolars players are lucky they live in London so they can play semi pro rugby league as if most of them lived up north they would not be signed by semi pro teams as they aren’t good enough. I hope we recruit some quality players but the squad is too old, slow and struggle at this level.

    I’m worried now as my team Skolars could be wooden spoon contenders with all the good west wales signings.

    I remember watching Hemel beat Rochdale Hornets at Pennine Way in front of over 400 spectators 🙁

    Hemel pull out of League 1

    I enjoyed the London derby when we would play Hemel. Skolars ans Hemel always had a great rivalry and some great derby game in front of some very good crowds in the early days. Hemel still have homegrown players such as Dan Sarginson, Jamie Acton and Kieran Dixon playing the game at the highest level

    ‘League 1 South’

    People need to be accountable and Head Coach and players would be a good start. Sorry I messed the one victory against a northern team in keighley which has been said by fans the worst keighley team in the clubs history. The club has gone backwards and fans want answers.

    ‘League 1 South’

    20 years as a pro club and Skolars are still down towards the bottom of league one behind Coventry Bears. Skolars have big budget and a use of duel reg players from Broncos and still can’t beat any of the northern teams and only wins came against West Wales, Hemel and Coventry. Surely questions have to be asked of the coach, the players and the people running the club. Fans want answers!! Hector what is your answer to such a disgraceful season
  12. In my opinion Kim Williams the new West Wales Coach has the hardest job in rugby league. How does he get the best out of the worst rugby league team in the history of the semi pro/ pro game. Is it 7 losses by more than 100 in a season and can’t get 13 players to a home game!!
  13. West wales need to withdraw from the league they are an embarrassment to our sport and the league. 12 players available to play at home. The new full time coach need to bring half an NRL team with him to stop the heavy losses. Skolars once again need to look in the mirror as they were atrocious too. What a bad season we’ve had with some players that are an embarrassment to the club but and embarrassment to themselves.
  14. I thought Hemel were the better team the first 15 minutes so as a Skolars fan it’s lucky Hemel didn’t have any subs ans played 65 mins with 12 men otherwise I think we would’ve been beaten.
  15. Maybe a new general manager will take the club in the right direction. All Cannot not be well at a club/organisation when the general manager changes every year. Is that because Hector is hard to get along with and difficult to work for or do they realise the club is a lost cause.
