It's just fantastic , and a privilege , to see these players and this standard of rugby in the flesh . We see these guys on the telly , but it's only we you see it , feel it , and hear it do you see the full effect , and how awesome they all are . It sends the hairs up on the back of your neck . You could hear the thump outside the ground as that kick was driven into Santi's head ,he staggered , fell over then got passed the ball for a hit up and charged it in ! To see Snowden , Laffranchi and Vaughan battering it in brutally , and Ian Henderson repeatedly chopping them down . To see Danny Broughs precision kicking , organisation and brain working . To see the Scots stop dead the Italian right on the line under the sticks with a shuddering tackle . To see the legend Minichiello playing , refereeing and being the brilliant pro he is . To see our lads more than playing their part .. And to see a hundred other highlights which mulled over in my head and kept me awake !!! We need more of this up here ... We deserve it .

You are right David, we do need more of this and we have the likes of Garry Scholfield in todays RLE, Kyle Amor on twitter etc all saying the same thing. Imagine if we could watch that calibre of player every two weeks.

Then again the same old naysayers will shout loudest and nip any momentum in the bud.

I was was proud to be West Cumbrian this last week cheering on a team from a different country along with workmates from ten miles south. The rugby was fantastic and the ground was rocking. It just shows what can be achieved in this corner of the country.

Even the Haven coach, Dave Woods was saying that there should be a SL club up here and said that the two clubs should be working together towards that.

However, we have heard this so many times from various sources, usually from people who have been involved in the game, not mere fans, and, as you say, the naysayers seem to always be the one's that are listened to by the clubs.
