  1. There's nothing here that suggests very poor man management. If Shaun had been told he was playing, and then when he walked into the changing rooms there was someone elses shirt on the peg and that was the first he knew, that's bad man management. Nothing written above suggests that was the case. If Diskin changed his mind for whatever reason, explained those reasons to Shaun before the game (whether he liked the reasons or not), that's not poor man management. To not change his mind if he had good reason to do so would have been poor management full stop. I personally hope he's playing on Sunday, has a blinder and ends up with a good run in the team.
  2. Is there evidence of bad man management, or are you just equating him being told he's not playing that weekend as bad man management? I hope he gets a chance this Sunday.
  3. Almost perfect! The Mrs had Chandler as last try scorer on SkyBet. 50-1!!
  4. Where do you get your hat from if you ticked the other box on the form? i.e. if you weren't going to the Cas game last Friday?
  5. I think these things go the other way. You see players that have played better than their usual standard picking these awards up. Consistently excellent players (e.g. Brambani, Brown last year) tend to miss out where another player has played above their usual game.
  6. Agreed. I thought Davey had his best game for Batley. He was all over the place with the ball (in a good way). Really creative and sharp. At one point I thought it was a new player I wasn't familiar with.
  7. ###### take. I'd be fuming had I not had Trainspotting tickets on Friday night for ages
  8. This article tears the RFL a new one over the Bradford situation:
  9. Yeah, just seen that he put this on another thread: "We are still working on getting a game on 15/1 at home against former Bradford players. Players & coaches want to play but we are waiting for Rfl approval. More news Monday but not reliant on a new Club being formed next week which i think is wishful thinking. If it doesnt happen it certainly will not be for lack of trying."
  10. Would be mightily impressive if they sort out and get the go ahead for a viable business, form a club, sort playing staff contracts, insurance, red tape, instigate training and get in some match prep before Sunday.
  11. Does anyone know the routine for match entrance / tickets? Is it just simply pay on the gate? Imagine kids with season tickets will need to go somewhere to get a ticket first, which will be fun. It's hard enough explaining "kids get in free" in England / English.
  12. From the BBC just now: Former Super League and world club champions Bradford Bulls have been liquidated after the club's administrator rejected a bid to save the club, reports BBC Radio Leeds. The Bulls entered administration for a third time in four years in November. The administrators hoped to have a deal agreed by Christmas but turned down a bid from a consortium on 29 December. Bradford won four Super League Grand Finals before being relegated to the Championship in 2014. More to follow.
  13. Can anyone shed light on and explain the point of the salary cap? If you can seemingly just spend what you want based on where you reckon you'll finish in 10 months, without having it in the bank TO spend then it surely isn't fit for purpose? If clubs can spend in the current season what they expect to win at the end of that season, and go bust if they don't make that position, what's the overall point?
  14. Good post.
  15. A photo wouldn't necessarily show a knock on though.
