  1. I know most people have us down but really good win for Thunder this afternoon. We did our best to try and lose it but pleased for everyone to get a win!

  2. Amazing result for the dogs. Seriously though, if Fev had a sudden slip, what do you reckon the club would do if the dogs DID finish top - stick or twist.? Naturally this would depend on the RFL overlooking the club’s application for SL for : 1. Ground capacity being too small. 2. support numbers too small. 3. pitch too slopey. 4. Shirts wrong colour. 5. Burgers too small. 6. Beer too warm. 7. Piggy’s mate. Really hope you finish as high as the club deserves. And that’s coming from the old enemy.

  3. Good win, thought we kept our cool against Swinton's painfully obvious and dull spoiling tactics, despite 3 yellow cards. They did a good impression of a football team with the feigning of injury, going down at the slightest of touches and didn't really play any rugby. Hau was impressive today, he treated their 7 like an annoying ragdoll that kept getting in his way. Springer and Yei put great shifts in and I thought all the backs went well. Onwards and upwards!

  12. Off the field town are reaping the benefits of their community programmes, these initiatives take time but what they will achieve is a new generation of supporters. On field so pleased they have stuck to their guns and stayed away from duel reg and the like, things are looking a lot brighter than they have been for a long time

  13. Great performance today. Couldn't fault the effort from anyone. Hall in particular was excellent. Did the tough Carrie's a la Hardcastle. Hau came of age. Given the injuries to Bussey, Day and Josh he is now integral to our hope of SL. Credit to the management team for getting him here. What would our neighbours do for having him in their ranks. I'm told also that Junior is only 2 weeks away so good news there. Killer though needs resting after every 2 games. Plenty of cotton wool required. What a player.

  14. Very enjoyable game and great to see the ground fuller than usual, well done. I'm gonna keep banging this drum..every time Marwood comes on we finish the game well and it's so good to have him back, to think him and Walker were allowed to leave last year. Well done whoever brought them back. The game had a bit of everything..hard running, strong tackling, skillful kicking, flying finishes in the corners and that try! At 20-12 they'd wrestled it back and looked dangerous but some good substitutions and a couple of moments of magic and it was game over. Some tough games coming up now Oldham, Dewsbury, N Wales away and Donny and Hunslet at home.

  16. Some lovely tries today but switched off to let Rochdale back in it. Switched on again to finish in style. A really good crowd, well done to the club. Even though we have injuries it’s very good that we turned out a 17 with 15 Cumbrians, 16 if you count our adopted Cumbrian in buffer, and haven’t gone down the dr route but stuck with the squad we put together for the season. We’ll need to strengthen for sure, but some of these young lads look impressive. Hope the 2 Rochdale lads aren’t too badly hurt.

  19. The NSWRL was the premier comp in Australia despite what an old angry man from Leigh says & is the precursor to the NRL,that’s why clubs are credited with premierships going back to its inception. The Brisbane comp was pretty successful in its own right but with the birth of the Broncos it sadly faded away,although the Qld Cup is a pretty successful comp these days.

  21. I agree it should be the IRL or the nations involved organising these games. Are the NRL allowing this though? The IRL are hampered and hamstrung at every turn and the NRL waste no opportunity to put every other RL body in their place, whether that is the IRL, a World Cup, the RFL and NZRL over mid season tests or arranging NRL internationals for Tonga without asking them and preventing them from arranging their own own. It is the NRL that benefit from the international games it organises. It is the NRL that sells them as part of its TV deal and benefits from sponsorship, government funding, any grants and ticket sales. It is the NRL that furthers its brand and solidifies its stranglehold on the international game through doing this. The NRL being the ones to pay the players, after receiving all the benefits, is just another form of control.

  22. I think the crowd was 12,385 at Warrington which is about 1,900 more than last season. Well done wire.

  23. Not when its in the NRL's interests to do so. They belatedly see the international game as helping them grow the sport in Australia, but its in their interests to have competitive opponents. It's closer matches that generate interest. Makes perfect sense for the NRL to level the pay playing field to help Tonga and Samoa have stronger sides. It helps grow the NRL.

  29. Wasnt the best but a wins a win. Our middles and left backrow really struggled to hold Andrade. Right side looked strong both sides of the ball. Some great backrow lines to open them up for Rawsthorne who had easily his best game for us.

  30. We need to forget about the season so far Our season is now 4 games long 2 at home, 2 away We need to reset, take stock, focus Cut out silly penalties, total control the set of 6 after scoring, bully teams, build pressure rather than trying to score off every play, line defence needs to be rock solid We've to lose the swagger of "simply turn and win" and "if you score 4 we will score 5" Away games need the same intensity as home games, relentless, unforgiving, turn the screw on the opposition, and grind them down. Force mistakes, force errors, capitalise when given easy possession, beat NWC & Hunslet and we're almost over the line, these 2 games will be very difficult, we snooze, we lose... 4 games that's all We've not lived up to expectations away this season and I'm sure the coaching team would agree with that.. 320 minutes of lean,mean, killing machine needed COME ON RAMS

  40. Great result for Cornwall, it is a great result for Rugby League, hopefully it will boost their confidence and inspire them to a few more wins which should draw a few more people to their home games which has to be good for the game as a whole. Skolars will come good we need them to be successful also if we want this great game of ours to thrive. It is so hard making progress with so little funding for all the tier three teams, it is hard enough in the Championship to make ends meet so you have to applaud the efforts of all the people in involved in running the clubs at this level.

  41. Its one of Whitehaven's closer away grounds/cities (and nicer ones once there) to travel to will have helped. Not sure if Newcastle had a promo or something on though for home fans.

  42. Again after today what seems like lacklustre performance. It is becoming more apparent as a team we don't have much in a way of direction or aggression. We were convincingly out enthused and easily beaten by 12 men!! This is hardly a knee jerk reaction but something needs sooner rather than later.

  45. But add to that... I can't believe that a side that has shipped 36 points at home to a team with a terrible away record will reach the Championship final. I can't believe a team that has lost by wide margins to York, Keighley and Barrow will reach the Championship final. I can't believe that a team that got thrashed 42-14 by Widnes will reach the Championship final. I can't believe that a team that lost 36-0 at Sheffield will reach the Championship final. I can't believe that a team that conceded 40 points at home to Whitehaven will reach the final But that's the current top 6 that we have just described!
