Leeds reserves 8 - 0 up against Barrow. They seem to be inheriting Leeds traits by getting lucky with forward passes.

Barrow beaten 42 - 12 by the Rhinos. We were the much poorer of two poor sides, if we play like that every game this season its going to be a very long one.

Fantastic result for Town today, using only 1 DR player (Hulme on the wing covering for injured Elliot Miller) too.

I 'm reading some of these comments and thinking what have done to our game when as is said people won't go to watch if it' raining or too cold?

We want to consider our game as the greatest game but reading these sort of comments I wonder how soccer fans or "heaven forbid" rugby union fans manage.

If it's cold put an extra pair of soc ks and ann extra jumper on.

Union has increased its crowds enormously at club level since going openly pro - in the winter! So perhaps someone should be examining this and looking at a return to winter Rugby - there were 2800 at Fev today - good crowd in poor weather - how many will there be in June when there are holidays and trips to the coast or barbies at home as counter attractions?

Hopefully the crowds will continue to grow when the weather improves but like you say ( Trojan ) the good weather coincides with everyone being on holiday or day trips away. The Leigh game is usually one of the better crowds we get along with Halifax so its going to take even more hard work by the club and fans to keep the attendance above the 2500 average to tick the last box for Super League entry.

Leigh were completely outclassed on Sunday in every position and we should improve as will Leigh in the next few months when first team players from both sides return from injury and the weather improves, already looking forward to our next encounter.

I would much prefer a Sunday 18.00 Kick off during the summer months to give those that do go away for the day to return and attend games but then most parents are busy trying to get kids ready for school the next day. We have experimented with kick off times at Fev but its still usually the traditional Sunday 3pm that proves more popular.

When you play the Cougars it should be a 50 each draw.

If the whole Leeds squad is registered with Hunslet then isn't their more Rhinos players registered for hunslet than their own players?

Keinhorst absolutely ripped us too shreds he made a half break pretty much every time he got the ball. He should be playing SL every week.

Time for you to get the facts straight, Leeds only registered 4 players with Hunslet and then withdrew 1 of those.HTH.

Keinhorst is finishing his degree,so can't commit to full time training,thus dual reg at Hunslet.
