  1. Does anyone know the official attendance?
  2. You call them contested scrums in Union, But the end result is the same, you put it in you get it out. It just takes a minute and a half longer in Union.
  3. Once again a very entertaining game at the Fold. I think Oldham were better value than just two point winners. The referee brought Whitehaven back into it with a massively unbalanced penalty count in their favour. This caused a bit of a"Kenny get my Zantac" moment for our fans. Well done to the coaching staff and team. Also the fans who were vocal throughout.
  4. Has it actually been said that AVRO are the main tenant. A most likely scenario is Roughyeds give up he lease of Whitebank to the council. AVRO are invited to share the venue, if they give up their current venue to the council for development, then grants can be applied for as a multi sport facility, which would have more chance of securing funding, than a single use stadium would. As ever, we will only know when the full details are released. But my guess is, we and AVRO will be joint tenants and the council will be the landlords.
  5. Five new (five & seven a side) football pitches complete with a single roller skating area, additional car parking and a new building (527.5 square metres) housing 4 changing rooms, 1 Gymnasium, Referee's changing room, plus boiler-house. This is the content of the first planning application.
  6. I don't want to sound negative about this. But what caught my eye in the statement was that the pitch would be the same dimensions as the existing pitch, which is not up to minimum standards length wise.
  7. Whilst I think we all will be bias towards our own team, I do think we are not getting a fair rub of the green. Examples are, Bradford regularly moved to the side of the mark where they were tackled and any resulting penalty from this seemed to go to them for our markers not being square. The instance which wound me up the most when we tackled a Bulls player knocking him flat on his back (Dominant) he crabs and earns his team a penalty for holding down. You may just say its only a penalty, but with the workload that the Oldham defence had, most of these dubius penalty awards resulted in a try for the Bulls. We were never going to win, but damage limitation is crucial as staying up or going down may be decided on points difference. I thought Oldham's effort throughout the game was exemplary, shown once again by the fact that we went to the end and were the last to score.
  8. That's the second time we have played at Blackpool, and the second time we have thrown away a 20-0 lead.
  9. I originally posted £3 Dave, but then checked the website and could only find details of costs for the Warrington game, and so edited my post.
  10. £5
  11. Thought Danny Langtree deserved a mention. He was my man of the match, he looked to be carrying his shoulder a bit in the second half as well. But still managed to pull off a treble in defence.
  12. Harsh singling out Files, when all four tries were down to defensive lapses. In the set of ours which is shown, you can see the difference between the two sides. They are totally in control of the man on the ground, giving them on average an extra two seconds to reorganise. They looked physically stronger from the start. We did well when all is said and done, but there is room for improvement.
  13. There were many positives as has been said. I thought Palfreys kicking game was spot on. The amount of pressure we put on them in the first half, producing many repeat sets, you have to give the London defence a big rap for holding out. Also thought Lepori had a fine game at full back, with good kick returns and two certain try saving tackles. Another tough test against full timers next week, then the real league battle starts.
  14. Match-day prices will be: Standing, adults £15, concessions £12, juniors (under-16s) £3; seats, adults £17, concessions £14, juniors £5.
