There was a lot coming from your lads aswell, it was ###### for tat!?

I would blame your loss on the fact that you were second best in every department. There were plenty of decisions missed for both teams so I don’t think it has any influence on the result whatsoever! 

I didn't say in my comments that those wrong decisions had any influence on the result.

Quite right Broadeddie, slip of the typing finger, or summat like that.

We can afford better players yes, but Toulouse and Leigh can afford better squads than ours on a full time basis and we still beat them?

Dewsbury have just had a poor year.

It's not about a poor year, it's the year I expected given the budget we have. Before the season started, I predicted we'd finish 8th, we are 9th at the moment. Short of a sugar daddy turning up, it'll be the same again next season. And the same reason Fev will never get promoted unless a Beaumont turns up. Read on RL forum that Ken Davy has put £12m into Giants and even Lenagan had put £6m into Wigan.

Just read it's the last season of the Middle 8s, that will shake things up.

We do have a sugar daddy though WR. Without MS we would be in very deep doo-doo. He just doesn't have as much sugar, nor we as many fans, as those clubs who do.

Three of the four clubs with a smaller budget than ours are currently below us (the other is just above). Sad I know but money really does talk in our division. What the proposed restructure will bring is anyone's guess.

Without MS we would be in deep trouble, but he  keeps the club stable, but does want to throw money at the team to buy a few more wins and I don't blame him. He could spend £300-400k and we still might not make the Middle 8s. It will be interesting to see the financial fallout at clubs which don't make the top 4.

And with this season looking like the end of the Middle 8s any club looking to get promoted will have to throw a lot of money at it.

Anyone see the dangerous contact from Hallett in this game? Up for a grade D offence.... Can't remember seeing anything untoward happening??

Think it was the tackle on Matty Wildie, Hock gets away with forearm smash to Sherriff's head, unbelievable.

One wrong doesn't make a right. If there was a crusher tackle, and video will show whether that is so, then it must be punished. Whilst not looking so spectacular as big hits, elbows etc they are immensely dangerous for the players on the receiving end and have to be eliminated.

I saw the hallett tackle didn't think it looked great, seemed to be pressure applied to the back of the neck. Only saw it live though

Think the blind chap with the green shirt missed the Hock forearm incident completely so no one would be looking at it...

We did think about it but with our luck the RFL would have probably banned our prop Jodie Sherriff  for leading with his head 😉

To be fair - Sherriff did look as though he might have tried to bite Hocks forearm as it went in.

Sadly, and I think this emotion might be shared by a host of traditional Fev fans, their club has connived with the cynical exploitation of the loan/DR rules to give Leeds an insurance against Catalans.

One minute Gary Hetherington is defending the ethos of the sport, the next minute he is besmirching it's name. I truly hope that he can recognise the difference.

I agree. I don't think Leeds give a toss about Fev, anymore than Saints think about Sheffield. I won't, however, pretend that we wouldn't do the same as Fev if we were in their shoes. From Leed's point of view, it makes sense to keep their players match fit with the best part time side in the Championship, but they won't have the slightest qualms about pulling the plug when it suits.  In the mean time it's allowing Fev to live with the full timers, but possibly at the cost of team spirit to the squad. I'll bet it doesn't sit easily with the dyed in the wool Fev faithful. On the matter of Sheffield,  they would sell their collective Grannies into prostitution if it was going to keep them in business.

How does Leeds taking a Fev player on loan for International cover square with that though GOR? What is the benefit for Fev?

£££ Transfer fee and reduced salary bill. Also possibly the 'promise' of availability of other players. All speculation of course......

Do loans attract transfer fees?

I thought Fev weren't skint.

Even you know that it isn't a loan...... I doubt even money bags Dewsbury would turn down 'free' cash

Edit: the only report I've seen that actually tells it as it is https://www.pontefractandcastlefordexpress.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/leeds-rhinos-sign-record-try-scorer-luke-briscoe-from-featherstone-rovers-1-9213638

So it is a transfer and not a loan? I must admit that is news to me, and to the Fev fans I suspect.

We aren't "money-bags" as you correctly surmise but do clearly suffer under the misapprehension that Fev have plenty of brass.

It could never have been a loan given that he was coming back to Fev this Saturday - a quick glance at, or knowledge, of the loan rules would have been enough to see that. I've no idea how much 'brass' Fev have - although I have been told that the income streams that they have built up from outside of rugby means top 4 isn't essential to continue as they are - but surely every club is (or should be) looking at ways to bring in more and/or save money?
