New season - it's finally here!

Recommended Posts

Feels like this has been the longest off season ever for some reason, but it finally all starts this weekend. 

We fancy our chances at home to Normanton but they were the one team to beat us last season and know they'll be tough again. 

Really interested to see some of the other results, because I can't quite work out at the minute how the likes of Siddal, Mayfield and Thatto are going to go this season based on CC results.

To be fair looking at the weather forecast I would be surprised if there will be many games on with the beast from the east about to hit and temps most nights looking at minus 2 or 3 most of the week.

I think all 3 Cumbrian sides will be hard to beat at home, all 3 look to have healthy squads this year and hope all 3 end up in the playoffs come the  end of the season.

I  think Siddal will struggle this season based on the fact that they have lost 5 first team players including Garrod (there stand off and captain).I cannot see them winning the first 2 games against West Hull and Hunslet Parkside who are stronger sides IMO.I saw Wests last Saturday at Thornhill and Hunslet against Workington and Siddals youngsters will not compete with these guys but we will see in a couple of weeks??

They now have Anthony Murray as coach - and he's a great motivator!  Muz knows how to get the best out of players, and I suspect he'll do a good job there.

Hope wigan st pats get the fixture on v thatto heath on saturday with the tv cameras there. It'd be very disappointing for all concerned if the fixture succumbs to the weather.

Didn't you predict Normanton to finish bottom of the division?

Will it come back to haunt you?

I did and I stick by that (maybe not rock bottom but relegated) but we don't beat teams by underestimating them.

I wouldn’t be looking too much into those odds I for one think Hunslet will want to be underdogs...the challenge cup has slashed their odds! 

Can never write off west hull siddal Wath brow

It doesn't suit us being underdogs to be honest. We're going into the season expecting to make play offs and then it can be a bit of a lottery from there. You're absolutely right though, never write off a good 6-7 of those side. More than capable

Don't think Mayfield have done themselves any favours  making them comments on tv about Egremont,

I think the word 'worst' made it sound.....worse. Overall I don't think you'd find too many that wouldn't regard Wath Brow and Kells as stronger sides. 

Awkward for Mayfield if they do get beat by 'the worst team in Cumbria' 

Looking forward to watching after our game later.

Is siddal  v Hunslet Parkside on

Yes.....well it was an hour ago, so unless there's been a deluge I'd expect that's still the case

Thanks Neutral. 

Think we've set a benchmark today and made clear for any doubters exactly what our intentions are. Fair play to Siddal never gain in but it's meant as no slight to say they're literally not the same side. Sure they'll get better as the weeks go by. 

For us we'll have a good night but that's where the pats on the back will stop - straight into a huge game next week when we welcome Thatto.

Was impressed with the quality of rugby given the conditions of the pitch by both sides, it was a tough old game with niether side giving an inch.
