Cup draw

Brilliant for Town - not to sure for Widnes - a trip too Workington is always difficult they would be more confident on their plastic pitch but at Derwent I will be predicting an upset !!!!!  at least they will all see how much better Carter is than Briscoe  :lol:

Remember us beating them at DP around 1990ish. Paul penrice picked a lose ball up by the tunnel on the grandstand side and went behind the sticks if i remember rightly. Really pleased with this draw. Very tough game but you never know.

Well if Betts has any sense he will like to sign your better players.Briscoe will be gone next season as not in Betts plans.You can have Leuluai,Wintersteine,Davies,and Isa as they are all average.Hopefully Hock,Cross,Allen, and Marsh are back from injury.Hopefully played on a Sunday afternoon.

We can't have overseas players unfortunately on DR and I don't think our budget will stretch to buying them !

The crowd was given as 1320 in the RLE this morning and looking at the highlights especially at the end during the interviews almost half the crowd are still there cheering.    No doubt we will be accused of not taking any fans to the Rec again and again.

Hock v Thackeray even more so though might be a short game for them? 

 

Best possible draw.

Decent draw, hopefully the widnes fans come to the match. Hilarious reactions from the losers down the road, more bitter than a bitter thing drinking bitter.

Err they'll certainly know us inside out with those spies !!!!

Betts will have plenty of DVD's from the games this year, the duel reg players take one away with them after every game

Couldn't have worked out better for us.   They must have known though as Dennis Betts is the guest speaker at Town's Vice Presidents evening on Friday, 10th May, the weekend of the match.

 

Someone on the Widnes forum was suggesting that if they drew us at Workington there would be several busloads of fans making the journey to see the game.

I wasn't aware of that VP night Keith, have the invites gone out ?

Whens it to be played

 

Sunday, 12th May, is the date I think it will be played.   Games have to be played on the 11th/12th but we would normally play Sunday.

Hope Hock doesn't get rested for the game as he wont be in the UK next season. Heard a whisper he and Lee Mossop have signed for Penrith Panthers

Thought it was Parra ? Either way the more that go to the NRL the better chance we have of knocking the Aussies off . Parra have been linked heavily . Can see it with Hock , but Mossop , don't really see him as top notch personally on what I've seen.

After watching widnes last night you lot have nowt to be afraid of with Widnes but I would be worried that they may nick Acton and Thackray and maybe even Callum off you.

Don't think thacks could do it in super league any more, but the others could.
