  1. I applaud the action taken regarding a centre who shall remain nameless and welcome the club statement in relation to it but where is the club statement regarding the reserves or should I say the lack of reserves next season
  2. that may well be the case but what I can't accept is the lack of any information from the club especially how we made a song and dance of having reserves last year
  3. some may be given a contract beckett hartley et all but the club state quote "players that are going to take the team to the next level performance wise." end quote and as good as the reserves have played don't think there's any of them that fall into that category
  4. wonder if the next batch are the championship players mentioned in the press over the past few weeks or if it's to the next level some one that will shock the rfl world
  5. that's the way it should always be looked at steve I read it avidly but often can't believe the peoples choices and the reason they give I don't vote cos my vote wouldn't give a true indication of the match WHY? well I couldn't bring myself to vote for a DR or loan player who may only play a couple of games
  6. 8 dr 7 on loan and 7 from reserves but only 4 dr an 2 on loan played more than two games rest 2 and 1 appearances so not as bad as it first looks
  7. is there nowt on rams web page? on FEV's it lists the stats of the 43 who have turned out for us this year
  8. ONE OF rugby league’s “characters”, Gary Cooper, has died, aged 80. A full-back or centre, Cooper had great success as a player for Featherstone Rovers and Wakefield Trinity in the 1950s and 60s and went on to coach York. The brother of former Hull chairwoman Kath Hetherington - and therefore Leeds Rhinos chief executive Gary Hetherington’s brother in law - Cooper joined Rovers from Featherstone Juniors in 1958. He went on to make 187 appearances for the club, scoring 43 tries and nine goals and was captain for a spell in 1960. He was a Great Britain tourist in 1962, making 16 appearances though not featuring in the Test side and was signed by Trinity in 1966 for a £3,000 fee. Cooper played in Trinity’s 1967 Championship final win over St Helens and received the Harry Sunderland Trophy as man of the match when Wakefield retained the title by beating Hull KR the following year. He also played in the 1968 Watersplash Challenge Cup final defeat by Leeds at Wembley. After hanging up his boots, Cooper coached York between 1974 and 1976. RIP SOUPER DOUPER
  9. gary cooper dies age 80 RIP SOUPER DOUPER
  10. three things from yesterday 1 sloppy tries brinning in first half and horne in second letting players get the ball down when we've got hold of them 2 subs albert was causing havoc couldn't hold him taken off after 12 minutes WHY? 3 defending line when your down to 12 men when they scored their first render stood on try line overlap try what should happen is wingers forget about opposition winger your job as soon as they play the ball is to run into their line towards their centre put them under pressure
  11. on paper all across the park FEV look to have better players than york BUT you don't play on paper
  12. 2018 FEATHERSTONE Rovers will relaunch a reserve grade setup for the 2019 season. . Obviously it gives a pathway from Under-14s ETP, to Category 3 academy at NEW College Pontefract, to the reserves and then we’ll hopefully get a few players into the first team. “We need to grow a greater pool of players for this club and having all the pathways through to the first team will allow that.” “Some of the reserves would have got an opportunity last year and then you’re not putting pressure on the first team squad to play when they’re injured, so it’s massive for player welfare. “ a bigger pool of players to choose from,” a group of players to come in and have a professional attitude and who want to learn. Then hopefully we can unearth some gems.” competition for places in our first team 2019
  13. with all due respect I never said harry was as good as paul but having watched them boh up close and personal at a young age what harry did at FEV reminds you of a young paul when he runs he just does enough when chased by a forward runs slower than when being chased by a back just like paul he never panics or gets flustered just like paul he knocks players off in the tackle and sits them on their backsides mugs them off just like paul and close to the line he takes two three players over the line with him just like paul your right about newy's international career made his debut october 21st as a sub in the 24 -16 defeat to new zealand he was aged 18 years 72 days which made him the the youngest ever international beating the previous holder shaun edwards
  14. leeds wont get in top 5 so finish against warrington sep 13th in theory luke would be available after that date they but probably don't want him to play cos tom's acl will keep him out till this time next year
