Whitebank is not fit for the purpose of professional sport. The club has had enough time to sort this problem out. Its not fair on the players and they should not be expected to have to put up with it.

Our lads are already being approached by other clubs and you can bet the first thing said would be "well at least you can have a hot shower with us"

To be honest, that phrase wouldnt actually be all that attractive to me if I was a Professional Rugby Player, but thanks for posting it as it certainly gave me a hoot on an otherwise wet and miserable Monday afternoon!

If the club were genuinely serious about promotion jobs like having proper shower facilities would have been carried out by now,accepted crowds are down but who wants to watch games there its devoid of any atmosphere and not fan friendly.Who will pay for the work necessary to improve this depressing place the club have nothing and no signs of getting anything why should a benefactor by nothing.People will say its home but so is Strangeways to lots of people,it's not acceptable to ask players to play in horrible conditions and then go home dirty C.H should be ashamed of him self and why does the R.F.L do nothing about the diabolical conditions.

Everybody seems to be having a rant about the facilities. Now I know there have been problems in the past but this latest episode started when someone called Riggy posted on the Rochdale forum. Everyone else is restating it as ggospel. So does anyone know the facts. Not I know a mate who's mum saw a woman who used to go out with a hornets player who says the showers were a bit warm.

Confirmed by the players on twitter that there was no hot water to shower some used the referees shower once the officials had finished some used the WHB and some just dressed and went home to shower .This is not the first time and Hornets are not the only club its happened to,it really does need to be sorted as does the rest of Whitebank you have had plenty of time to get basic facilities built.

I don't think anyone is arguing with you hornet. I'm surprised we have got away with it for so long. It is a problem with the water supply i believe. Now back to the game. It was a well deserved win by Hornets, they adapted to the conditions far better than Oldham and their kicking game was awesome. I am still convinced we will beat you in the final though. Big pitch and the conditions can't be worse than yesterday. But enjoy your victory, you deserve it.

Perhaps  you  could try  playing  in  sundays  conditions  without  having  a    hot  shower  then  have  to  travel  back  to  London  like  the  Skolars  may  have to  next  sunday.

 

Why  should  the  away  teams  have  second  use  of  these  primative  conditions anyway?

like tosh says we are not arguing with you. Just wondered who's saying what. If true then it is not acceptable. We should have the facilities, end of story.

Providing we get past Skolars (no given) with no serious injuries, this defeat could actually turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Had we won yesterday, we would have arrived at the final for only our second game in six weeks, and could well have been seriously undercooked. What we now need are two consecutive performances similar to what we produced against Crusaders and Skolars a few weeks back. Is it possible? Hope so. Fingers crossed. Also, I'm not saying Hornets were lucky in either game (I wasn't at either), but this is a cup competition where you need luck, and maybe they've had theirs with two consecutive games where they've been outscored on tries by the opposition. I know it's probably clutching at straws, but, hey, I'm an Oldham supporter, this is the play offs, and we all know what's happened before!

The first competitive match in an age, will have done us good as a run out.

But I  fear our chances against Skolars. Don't know why.

Boy I am I glad I was so wrong.

4 weeks off is a clear disadvantage, but it seems the season end form is back on track (fingers crossed)

Could this be our year at least?

Don't think there will ever be a better chance.
