September 11th must have hurt you more than most! :D

Bloody Hell! I thought it had been decided that Osama Bin Laden was responsible. Hudgell's got more to answer for than I thought.

Where there's blame, there's a claim!

As a Widnes fan growing up I found it hard to dislike Saints the way I did for Wigan/Wire.

Lately I've had a soft spot for Cas but this season would love to see Wigan win the SL Final (just to break the Wigan/Saints cycle)

Number 1 Rochdale Hornets. My home town team who I first saw play almost 65 years ago. Been through all the lows and suffered long and hard. Now, the only way is up, so there will be more to cheer next season.

2. Wigan my favourite SL club by a mile.

3. Catalans Dragons

4. Crusaders

5. Quins RL

6. Lezignan (lovely little ground, well supported by friendly people)

7. Any Lancashire club (even Oldham) playing any Yorkshire club

8. Bottom, after recent events, Leeds

For the last few years it's been Catalans or Quins, but now Crusaders have taken that number 2 spot.

As I've mentioned before, I've always had a soft spot for Wales through some of the legends that have played the game and for my club Warrington, and I would be made up if they can become a firm part of the RL community and be around for years producing more Welsh legends!

For me its not a long term thing. I tend to favour teams who play a certain way or are up against it, but there's only one team I can say I support or ever will and thats Widnes.

At the moment I look forwards to Saints games, they play the way it should be played, and I admire Hull KR for the way they conducted themselves upon getting promoted, and I also look out for Catalans too. Although the sky team do their best to prevent this I also rather like watching Wigan recently, I'm hoping for a Saints Wigan final.

All these are subject to change depending on how the teams are playing etc etc although I'd never bring myself to hope Wire win a match.

Without wanting to start another Humberside ##### Fight, I am clearly talking about how well ran their club was in their promotion season and how they dug into a sure super league position. No one is talking about KR being replaced for a license. They came out of nowhere to get it.

My other team is the mighty, mighty Newtown Jets (who blew up in the GF semi against bl00dy Windsor - grrr).

Otherwise, I have soft spots for Souths and Norths.

Over here, I split my non-hornets watching twixt Warrington Wizards and Hudds Underbank depending on who's nearest/at home. I do like the Conference National (I watch a bit of Bramley too).
