    Bradford Predictions

    Are you being sarcastic HTR?

    Bradford Predictions

    Well I hope our lads have more belief than most of you lot! Absolutely no reason why they can't win as they have proved already that they can beat them. The recent lacklustre performances have been because they have been gearing up for the next two games. Leon will have them right up for this one in his own back yard. 20-22 UTT!!

    Coventry reaction

    Yeah it was very flat yesterday, I can't say I wasn't disappointed. I know we are 3rd and a win is a win etc but it was hard work to watch IMO. I suppose every team has to win ugly sometimes. I had been badgering a mate to give it another try but he had to work, I would have been gutted if he had came back down to watch that game. The penalty count against us and the error rate were awful. Fair play to Coventry they had a real good go at us. As good as Newton played I think it highlights how important Penky is to the way we play, as we always seem to miss him. Anyway hopefully all the injuries aren't too bad and the lads get themselves up for the next two games. UTT.

    Falling gates in Rugby League

    Just out of interest why don't you attend anymore DTTRR? Is there a specific reason and what might entice you and maybe friends back?

    Falling gates in Rugby League

    You don't but I guess we are down to the core support now who want the best for the club anyway so you have to trust them. We never take up the discount ticket offer as it gives the club less money if we do but I realise not everyone has the same financial situation or morals. It may be worth a shot and trust the vast majority would play by the rules.

    Falling gates in Rugby League

    Last year comets did a promotion and I was given free tickets for a comets (match?) Which i took the laal fella to. It wasn't my bag at all but the kids wanted to go again so it worked for them in my case. How many got hooked I've no idea though so maybe wasn't worth it overall. But to entice the floating fans the club could give a ticket to every paying fan at a home game for them to give to a friend to give them discount off entry at the next home game as long as they came with the fan who originally gave them the ticket. This way the match attendance and revenue won't be negatively affected when the floating fan is enticed back.

    Squad for Keighley

    I'd agree to a certain extent but we are usually slow starters and better in the second half which kind of shoots holes in that theory to a point. Maybe T4M has got it that the full time training nails it home if there are specific tactics for the game. With not ever seeing a dressing room beyond amateur level I don't know how in depth tactics are in semi pro compared to SL. It just seems a recurring theme with coaches, and maybe a get out jail free with some I suppose after a defeat. But it was more an observation by Leon that he was frustrated by.

    Squad for Keighley

    The bit I struggle to understand during LP's radio interview was the bit when he said the main difference between SL teams and this team is how they don't follow the instructions set out for them. Other coaches (Ged & Phil spring to mind) complained about the same thing. I wonder exactly what it is they don't follow and why they don't compared to SL teams?

    Squad for Keighley

    Excellent win in the end but it could have been 50 if we had played out sets in the first half. We were our own worst enemies which ended up with JD in the bin. From that yellow card we ended up in front somehow. Defence was good and their only try came from our own errors, but our attack was anything from sublime to atrocious. Buffer, Penky, Daws & Sam all stood out. Although the likes of Ollie & JD always do. Mellor looked lively too. Great tactic to kick in behind their defence that was pushing up on the edges and buffer executed two beauties for Ell, before cutting through and gave a superb pass for his hat trick. If we can put it together for a match we can beat anyone but it's eluding us at the min. Still a fantastic result though UTT.

    200 club draw v Keighley

    I'm only joking pal, you do a good job with it I am pulling your leg.

    200 club draw v Keighley

    If you are running this next year you may as well just make it the 100 club as nobody will take a number over 100 Scott. I'm trying to twine one in for the next draw by the way! 😁

    It mentions in the N&S that as long as the paperwork was started on Friday that players could be signed up to today. Maybe the squad isn't finished for this season.....

    Sundays predictions

    Raiders gave it a good go again today but it now looks like they will go the season without a win, gotta be hard for their fans. Our noisy neighbours got over the line again, have to give them credit as they know how to grind the results out. The play off positions are gonna be very difficult to predict, we just need to keep rolling and we will do ok.

    Awesome result. Hard listening though as the commentator was all over the place, they were in touch and scored a try, we kicked on the last then scored off the next tackle, and all Leon did was "prowl the touchline". I hadn't a clue what was going on! Brilliant result for the lads, can't wait for next week UTT!!

    Big game today, it would be a good win especially away considering our away record. UTT.

    I'd welcome the Donald 3 with open arms. Jamie was awesome for us when he last pulled on a Town shirt, and has since proved what he can do at SL and champ level. But no matter who is brought in somebody will still twine.

    Leigh money worries

    It looks like many clubs are gambling on their futures. It really is sad for RL, and should set alarm bells ringing for everyone in the RFL as every season there is another club in the mire. When is the penny going drop that Superleague needs the structure below it for it to thrive?

    No! - you sure about that Wonky? 😂

    Does it not mean that the players who haven't played the 5 games can still play for us but cannot then go back and play for their parent club for the remainder of the season?

    Sean Penkywicz commits to Town

    Excellent news, he has been fantastic for us so far this season. UTT.

    Border News

    The atmosphere at a derby game was spine tingling back then, even the roof on the old stand at the wreck used to help generate the noise. Sadly those days are gone, and the attitude between the fans is getting more like a football crowd atmosphere.

    Moving forward from haven defeat

    Thanks Donald.
