  1. Well that's another one, why the hell is a final being played with home advantage for any team? Especially when overseas team involved. Which professional sport does that? You could think the RFL were trying everything to ensure Toulouse go up?....
  2. After watching RL in many guises of York RLFC I have to say the first few years of the Knights being formed with Steve Ferres and Roger Dixon fronting the Commercial side of the club were just brilliant, match day was an experience not just 80 mins of rugby, the ground started filling 40 mins before KO, there were entertainment for the kids before and at half-time, almost every game had a curtain raiser and away games we took on average 400+.atmosphere and camaraderie was great. If we could put this coach in Fordy and the squad we have this year with a couple of additions back with a strong Commercial team like that the club would be a different place. Just not quite sure where a suitable backer with vision will come from, might go to York City but not sure really if that's a step forward or not. Just want a professionally run competitive team to watch in my home City
  3. I really hope your team can win it next weekend in France, nothing against Toulouseo but the RFL have got this expansion lark badly wrong and would love you guys to ###### on their chips!! I thought Barrow were the best UK team we played all season and in the 8's Dallimore kicked us off the pitch at our place, if your pack can get on top I think you have a very good chance of lifting the trophy. Good luck, although all three Cumbrian teams in CH1 next year would make some cracking games.
  4. I hope they remain in hangover mode and your guys busted a few of their players, IF we play 80 mins of our best rugby possible then we could stay with them, on evidence of last few games we will be vast underdogs which could go in our favour, all depends how many of the 1st 17 can travel and who's fit.
  5. Gav With the backing both clubs have and hence strength of playing squad they have put together why don't the RFL put them straight into championship as oppose to them in CH1 where they basically thrash everyone, lots of problems for p/time players getting time off to travel to France etc etc
  6. Gav don't you mean if Tolouse don't win promotion? I think a lot of people ( me included) are somewhat hacked off that clubs like Tolouse appear to be given preferential treatment, personally I would love it if the Knights or even Barrow or Donny went up instead of the Frogs
  7. C'mon Fordy and the lads that make it over there next week, sounds like Rochdale really took it to the Frogs physically so our forwards will need to be firing like they were at the start of the season and get stuck in early in the game. If Rochdale can do it so can we!!
  8. Unless the Knights can pull a massive performance out and mirror what the Hornets have done, you just never know in one-off games, it's a big IF but possible.
  9. Despite the fact you've given the Knights a huge task next week just really well done today, really pleased to see the Frogs beaten when they thought it would be a cake walk into the Championship.
  10. Rochdale away in two weeks, will need to be on nothing less than top form for this one to have any chance of beating them a third time. They are a very good side and not dipping in form. Already shown we can beat them so c'mon lads get it together over next two weeks.
  11. Congratulations from a York fan, I have watched a few of your games and the brand of rugby you play in attack is fantastic to watch, first 30 mins yesterday's was as good as any I've seen in a long long time, just need to sort out the defence. Wish you all the best for next season in SL, won't be easy mind.
  12. Trig It's a dying forum I'm afraid, hardly look on here myself these days, sign of where the club is, very sad as used to be the most lively forum out of the two lower tiers.
  13. Serious well done to you guys, so close to pulling off a victory that would have upset the French and the RL who clearly want to see them unbeaten all season. Was it torrential rain by any chance?
  14. Cracking result today for Warrington's A-team
  15. If you guys had some penetration with ball in hand you'd match a few sides in this league, thought you looked a well-drilled side just lack a little craft and guile. Defensively tough, however we were very poor and made lots of errors and poor decisions on last tackles combined with a woeful kicking game today, Good luck fir rest of season your lads showed up well today.
