    Watching my favourite team knock ten bells of shyte out of HKR this year !!!
  1. I think we are all getting a bit giddy here. The championship will be one hell of a competition next year, and im for one glad Leigh are not in it. Leigh also need to avoid the bottom 4 too, so top 8 needs to be the goal. There will be some really strong teams, and this is what will make the middle 8's even better next year. HKR, Bradford, London, Batley, Fev, and Halifax are all better squads. If people think Toulouse will turn up and walk the league, then they need to think again. Home games will preserve C1 status, away form will leave alot to be desired !! Mid table for me.
  2. HKR gone to sleep and defensively brittle on the flanks. Similar to the Leigh game this.
  3. We (Leigh), looked very sluggish and Headingley is always a difficult place to go to. As Quoted, Ridyards tackling on Leeds' left edge was found wanting. STILL, its job done and well done to them. Obvious investment is needed and i am sure Derek will spend every penny of the new cap. I dont think we will be good enough to finish top 8 next year, so here is a Leigh fan being a realist, but if some of the lower SL clubs dont invest heavily either, they too will come up short. Well done to Leeds, some great kids there. Id be surprised if they find themselves in such a position again !!
  4. I agree. We might have lost that with Paul in charge. My word we dug in and finished our chances well. Tonga may well have paid his transfer alone with that pass. Brilliance!
  5. Tenacious, aggressive and bloody fair play to them. 26 warriors and one proud leyther in marbella. Well played boys!
  6. Talk about taking your doot off the gas ! Well done London ! 34-8 to 34-30 in a matter of 5final minutes is a credit to you. Lesson to you Leigh ! 22 points in 5 mins ain't good enough !
  7. Good luck Fev. The Leythers want you to do the Championship proud. Hope you get the sell out you deserve. PO Rd will be like a cauldron with anything like 7k on and it will look great for the cameras.
  8. It will be nervous after last years middle 8 shambles. Wakefield won us by 1 point, and they are in the top 8 of SL this season. The rest is History. At least we have had the experience, for which to be fair we are the ONLY championship side that has it with the other 3 sides having better seasons. Leigh just need to beat the Championship sides as the first priority. If they take a SL scalp, happy days but that will only guarantee 4th. We need to take 2 scalps for automatic promotion, because no disrespect to the other Championship sides,i dont see any Champioship side winning a SL team this time round.
  9. Point difference mean nothing in this format. Leigh just need to win !!!
  10. Best of luck Featherstone. Alot of Leythers rooting for you and your not to be underestimated should you qualify. Hope you get a huge crowd and rip it up!
  11. Some Leigh fans let themselves down, but I wouldn't say arrogant, just giddy ! As a Leigh Fan, all I can say is bloody well done Batley. It is probably the kick in the groin we needed. I am interested in how we respond, especially the Coach as we have some really tough games coming up. Great win and a great season ahead. If we thought it would be a cakewalk, we need to think again, but I seriously think we will be OK come the end of the league season. Its a Marathon, not a sprint. Last year, we came round the bend far to early !!
  12. Fev will be strong again this season, and will be no pushovers. The bookies are rarely wrong and if Leigh don't finish top, that would be a real upset ! Leigh have now the infrastructure and we have an ambitious owner who wants to take the club to the next Level. As daft as he is, good on him. Fev will have a say on who finishes where and PO Rd is always a tough place to go. Its also a cracking little ground (Although I hated that slope when I played there), so good on you for making the obvious ground improvements. Best of luck, and I honestly think 3rd and 4th Place are up for grabs between 6 clubs. Yours being one of them. Robin - It will be good to bump into you again. I think you still owe me a pint from your play off win at Hilton Park 15 or so years ago !!
  13. Leighs super 8 dreams misfired during that Miserly 40 second half minutes v HKR !! A second turning point was taking the 2 points instead of going for the Kill. After that, its History !! I too felt Leigh needed a Plan B and that was purely around game Management. I think some of these holes have now been filled and a stabler Leigh should result in having a really good chance of Promotion. With the signings we have made, there is absolutely no excuse !!
  14. Lets be honest, Bradford is round the corner, similar to Warrington when we took over 4500 in the Challenge Cup. There will be over 2000 at the Mount. I am going just for the food !! LOL
  15. HaHa, looking forward to my trip to the Mount. as stated above, the players mentioned should put bums on seats and the Leythers will come out in droves for this one. It looks like boom or bust for us,and as stated lots of times, failure to go up could be catastrophic. Leigh learned a lot from last year and the starting 13 needs to match that of most SL clubs to compete in the 8's. Best of luck to Batley. Never an easy game and it will be an eye opener if the weather is poor for some of the perceived superstars that's for sure !!
