It's Going To Be An Emotional Weekend....

15 posts in this topic

Driving up from Suffolk with my son on Friday for what promises to be a weekend to remember.

We are taking my dad to the War Memorial at Lichfield on Saturday. It's also the 2 year anniversary of my mum passing away. We will think of people that we lost - people who gave everything for us.

On Sunday we will roll into Leigh for a game I am very excited but nervous about.

The club have restored pride into a town that's had it tough. Win or lose we will give our all on the grass and in the stands. We will sing until we can't spayke.

We will leave with our heads held high no matter what happens because this season we have been brilliant and shown that guts, pride and honesty can take everything to a different level.

I know lots of people are travelling from all over the UK to be there - safe journey - lets hope it's a great game.

Always black and amber.....

You've got to hand it to Cas they've done brilliantly under DP.  They are the shining example of why P&R is a good thing. Had they missed out in 2007, they'd still be in the Championship, instead of in the CC semi and challenging for the GF.

Good luck to Cas. While their support will be fervent I hope that they also pay due respect to opposition fans, regardless of the result. Should be a wonderful occasion. 2 great clubs on show, coming back to re-living former glories.

Dont really get the comment about hoping Cas fans pay due respect to widnes fans. Seems to suggest that they will cause trouble if they lose.

In actually fact I seem to remember two instances of crowd trouble worthy of hitting the media involving Widnes as recently as last season (Warrington and Waky).

If the comment needed making (which in my view it didn't) maybe should have been inclusive of everyone attending.

Why can't you argue that it is a great indication that licensing was good because Widnes might still be languishing in the lower leagues otherwise?

Yeah I'd say its a great example of two clubs being able to establish and strengthen themselves due to licencing.

true though, nonetheless

Not true though is it?  :no:

They both finished bottom in 2012 and would have been relegated

But they'd probably have been promoted the following season

Whereas under licencing they'd have been dropped  had Crusaders not quit.  And had there been no P&R in 2007, they wouldn't even have been in SL.

A weak, spurious argument the like of which are common on this board by people who post too much.

 

You base it on supposition "they'd probably have been promoted the following season"

 

Incorrect fact "under licencing they'd have been dropped  had Crusaders not quit."

Trinity, surely?

 

Anachronism "had there been no P&R in 2007, they wouldn't even have been in SL."

Had there been no licensing in 2012 they would'nt have been in SL.

Who know who were for the chop?  I recall both Wakey and Cas being prime candidates according to Radio Leeds.   The point I'm trying to make is that had there been licencing in 2007, then arguably Cas would still have been in the championship.  After all why were Widnes promoted, what did they win?  Certainly not the Championship the year they were promoted. That year IIRC Widnes just went through the motions, what should have been exciting games against them were mere strolls in the park.  If anything brought licencing into disrepute it was this.

Really pleased to see the heartfelt opening post about the pure joy of supporting Rugby League and enjoying it with those we hold dear has been turned into a petty squabble about the structure of the sport. Let's face it, we have far to much of the former, and not enough of the latter...

Ha ha!!

Rise above it fella. Drive up today - tough gig.

Lit some candles for mum earlier. Will spend some time with my dad tomorrow.

The game is looming - but will deal with that on Sunday - if all goes to plan I might leave the car and walk home to Suffolk...!!
