  1. And it hasn't come about because it is the competitive option but because it is the cheapest.

  2. As much as I really rate Davies and Marshall and clearly have a soft spot for them, with them having come through at Wigan, we’ve got 3 top class wingers realistically and not 5. Picking any 2 from Young, Makinson and Johnstone will leave you in a great position. I know Dom Young played plenty of centre as a junior and if he gets moved in at club level at any point, it would be interesting see how he goes. If you had Makinson, Young, Farnworth and Johnstone at 2-5, that could be pretty special.

  3. It's very reasonable - Rugby League folk are bound together far more than they are separated by their narrow club affiliations. In a way, he was family, just like your childhood hero, your most loathed rival club's star player or some foreign RL pioneer you haven't even heard of yet.

  4. I think more importantly...how can Leigh be joint 2nd and Hudds be so bad with the squad they have?

  5. The transformation in 16 months since we( Fev )beat you easily in the mud in the first game of last season is remarkable.I always want you to win and as i said after the York game you play entertaining rugby league.I am sure all other Championship supporters are pleased you are doing well.Certainly ruffled a few feathers in SL.

  6. I will put things in perspective for you. There are 22000 houses in Leigh compared to 105000 in WN 1-6. The Smiley face puts things into perspective the respect I have for Wigan I have as a club and as a team. Im not Einstein, but Central Park, (sorry) soulless soccer ground outside of Town must have sold out Tonight in comparison in to Leigh’s measly 6k attendance in front of the Sky cameras surely ? You got nowhere near to doubling it ! You should embrace Leigh and embrace being a pie eater. It brings the Two Towns together and any true Wigan fan would embrace a strong Leigh team as I have over many years supporting Wigan against the Aussies etc etc ….. Been to Wembley many times supporting …… Have you seen a lot of of RL ? Based on the passiveness of your post, I doubt. Your a keyboard ‘warrior’. I’m just a RL fan who is enjoying the ride and for a change is embracing the fact that a promoted team isn’t getting shafted and relegated. What a breath of fresh air ! If Leigh beat Saints and Wigan beat Hull KR, DM me, and I will buy you a Cola on Wembley way. If Leigh don’t get there, good luck. Nowt changed. Same old boring Rugby League !

  7. How many teams double there average attendance after half a season in superleague, what would Wigan's attendances be,if they had been in the championship as long as Leigh. I'm sure you won't be moaning when they fill the away end at the DW in a few weeks time.

  12. Rugby League is increasingly a game of momentum. Teams that are on top tend to be "very on top" for either the entirety or parts of a game. Its why in even very even final scores we see sometimes say one side dominate 1 half and the other team the other. 6 agains are perhaps the biggest contributor to this, but penalties, territory etc seem to compound a losing teams misery and or give a massive "winners bonus" to the side that is ahead.

  13. Yes, thousands of people do. He knows more about the game than the vast majority of people and, unlike some, he isn't afraid to give his opinion. If you are ever lucky enough to sit next to Garry at a Rugby League match, by the end of the 80 minutes you will know and understand much more about the game on the field by the time the final hooter sounds.

  14. I think as Odsal Outlaw states, there would need to be some fta stuff too to offset this. Interestingly though, sponsorship doesn't appear to be too much of an issue in France where TV and media coverage isn't great. Our sponsorship portfolio isn't amazing here, so maybe it isn't the huge sticking point we build it up to be.

  15. I know I just didn't get that call at all. He was on his knees and elbows in-between the man playing the ball and the DH, he was impeding Houghton, and he made no attempt to move. Houghton is well within his rights to give him a shove imo. And then subsequent angles showed he also had a hold of Brown's ankle whilst he way trying to play it. It was a big moment in the game because Hull had just scored and a Hull penalty would have seen them attacking Catalans line. Instead Catalans got the penalty and scored on that set.

  16. I think last weekends fundraiser just continues the progress the club have made since their relegation last season. What could and should have been an absolute disaster in League One has actually been quite enjoyable. I'm disappointed in a couple of results and I think we should be second or third in the league, but it’s refreshing to see the club trying different things to increase revenue and general interest in the club as opposed to sitting back and living off RFL handouts. We are moving in the right direction and the players that have come into the club of late will strengthen us for the second half of the season. As much as I want us out of this league, I don’t think another season of rebuilding would be a bad thing

  26. Looking at the crowds so far, we're averaging 7085 with 4 home games to play. We've got Cats, Hudds, Wakey before what should a decent crowd against Wigan in the final game, if we match the 2017 crowds against those 3 teams(5612,6001 and 4938 which were 3 of our lowest attendances that year), we'll still be averaging more than the 6.5k we got in 2017 with Wigan to come. For me anything above 2017 crowds was fine for year 1 and a good base to build from off the back of a lean few years and post covid. 7k average would be very respectable for a newly promoted team.

  27. If the home nations aren't going to be allowed to qualify, I wouldn't be averse to a GB return just to maintain a modicum of involvement. However, as with GB last time, it entirely depends on the coach and their approach, against increasingly difficult odds for non-English inclusion. I would make a set of home nations matches compulsory that year firstly as a trial for GB (&I?) and so that each maintains a presence. In any case it would carry more legitimacy than a Maori or Indigenous Australian team.

  28. Ah the mythical Confederations Cup which was a great idea and which the 4 Nations was scrapped for. That on a 4 year cycle in between World Cups and Northern and Southern hemisphere tours either side and you have a cracking regular international schedule. It really is grim what has happened, or not happened to be more precise, to the international game over the last decade or so.

  30. Presume this is trolling. The fact that Toulouse have options to move to at least two alternative stadia within the city makes part of the case for why they are an asset to the game (including to the Championship). I like Halifax but they hardly have an iron grip on the Shay.

  32. On SKY last night the pre match featured a listing of who's had the most continuity of players in the prime positions , no surprise that Leigh were at the top , losing your ' spine ' players can massively affect your ability , and similarly your starting forwards , just shows how much luck can play in a game like RL Wakey have suffered badly at the start of the year , Wire,Salford definatly this weekend , in previous SL seasons Leigh have had literally no luck whatsoever using large numbers of fringe and loan players just not up to SL standard , it showed FC having Clifford back last week Quite often it is how teams cope with these disruptions that decide who wins over a season

  33. Indeed and it is completely at odds with the approach that has been taken to grow the World Cup, going from 10 to 14 and then finally to 16 teams, which has long been the goal. Slashing the number of teams in half when we finally get to 16 has nothing to do with a strategy for growing the international game.

  37. I’d be happy if DAZN got the rights with one game per week on FTA with Channel 4. DAZN have boxing as well and for £10/month probably better value than sky. The drop in viewing figures vs. Sky is less of an issue if its on FTA

  39. Hull KR needed to start this game well to have a chance, and the kick off and the Lewis brain fart obviously killed the chance of that off. The game was won in the middle, Rovers failed to control the ruck and so Leigh got the roll on that they're always capable of doing. Fair play. I was vocal in my p*ss taking around the re-brand pre-season, and I stand by that. Execution was, and still is, amateurish. But I love Degsy's all-in commitment to his local club, and the way Leigh have built a decent squad this season and gone about their business. All power to their elbow, I'm down with it, good on 'em.

Isn't it great when you support a team that doesn't win that often but when they do it means everything. Imagine if you were a Saints fan in RL or Man City in Soccer winning every other week. Always stay with your team. Trinity til we die

  43. Just saw some highlights. Anyone got any idea why Giants played in their home kit of all maroon against a side wearing almost all dark red, instead of their ideally designed *away* kit of almost entirely all white? How many times does this unprofessional nonsense have to happen before the RFL get a grip? It just takes a 5 minute check and an email to each club, once per season

  44. Personally, I think we’ve managed DR well this season. We’ve hardly used it at the expense of our lads and players like slater have had plenty of game time. Cameron’s mostly been serving bans! Hes probably played half the games he’s been available for. the club needs promotion this season. Pointless being idealistic
