  1. So how many props do we need Steve? Ignoring Baldwinson and Ormonroyd we have 6 in the current squad; almost 25% of the (non DR included) total.
  2. Except it's been Sharp who has (for some reason) been reluctant to pick Briggs. Now he's gone.........
  3. Interesting comment about the squad. Apart from the obvious, how many of today's squad would get into the 2010 GF team? Or even those of 2011 or 12?
  4. Some pretty unbelievable comments both on here and coming out of the Club. I remember the last time the coach 'wasn't good enough' and the 'grass was greener'. That turned out well.......
  5. As I, and others, have already posted elsewhere it's fake - the same account was claiming the same thing about Bradford last week
  6. Is that the same investment group the same 'account' claimed were taking over Bradford last week? Fake
  7. It's rubbish. The same 'account' was posting the same carp about a takeover of Bradford last week. Someone's got too much time to waste.
  8. 120 years of history shows that our game is nowhere near as popular as many on here believe it to be. The fact that they (and I) think that it is TGG doesn't make it so......
  9. Sad news. One of my all time favourite Rovers players. Always had time for a word and as Steve says, hard as nails on the pitch but a gentleman off it. Condolences to all of his family.
  10. I'm pretty sure I've read somewhere that that's how it's going to be this year but can't find anything to confirm it.
  11. Not sure that game will decide 3rd. Even if 'fax win they will still have to beat HKR the following week and rely on Toulouse beating Fev.
  12. I'd also add to Tex's comments that there are quite a few initiatives going on to generate non rugby related income streams, not least through use of the largish area of land the Club owns (approx. 17 acres I believe).
  13. As I've said above I don't think the actual sums involved have ever been released officially. £50k is approx 2800 through the gate (assuming admission prices stay the same and not counting extra programme, bar sales etc) and I would expect games against HKR, Warrington and Widnes to attract at least that many more than games against Catalans, Leigh and 'fax. I'd be surprised if both 3rd and 4th clubs aren't targeting a final position of 6th, essentially meaning one having to beat both the other and London. Both 3rd and 4th mean London away, and we've been pretty successful recently against 'fax so I don't think there's a lot between the two sets of fixtures to give the us best chance of doing that. As I see it none of us, 'fax or London, will beat any of the SL clubs, and I'd be surprised if any of the 3 beat HKR (despite our 2 showings so far against them).
  14. True, just pointing something out. It could be swings and roundabouts though since the exact amount you receive v finishing position has never, afiaw, been officially published. Finishing position prize money is though, 'certain' whereas gate receipts can be adversely affected by weather or even traffic conditions on the M62!
  15. In terms of gate receipts in the 8s 4th is looking better than 3rd at the moment.......
