  1. A very good performance by Sam Freeman.9 conversions out of 9 in terrible conditions. Its work in progress so far as the team is concerned. Mid table is my feeling at this point in time. We still look to be a little short in the forwards taking the ball up.
  2. If they only have 23 players signed on the chance of us getting a dual registered player turning out for Hornets is nil. Its more likely that we will be providing one for them.
  3. Good luck to your lads as well. Our win against you (Rochdale Mayfield) kept us in the Premier League last year. I always enjoy the fixture with your lads. you have a great club with fantastic support. Oh and that winning try for us in the cup final a few years ago was definitely not a knock on LoL.
  4. Two Premier League clubs have lost players to the pro game. Thato Heath have lost 5 players and Rochdale Mayfield 6 players all signed by Rochdale Hornets. Good to see lads getting their chance in the Pro game but feeling sorry for the two clubs who will miss those quality players.
  5. If our first friendly is on the 5th Jan so what does our squad look like. The deafening silence Is a little worrying. Anybody know who we have signed up ?
  6. Unless we have resigned a large number of last seasons players we have not enough players to field a 9 aside game. If I am wrong I would love to know exactly who we a signed on so far.
  7. I think Thato, Hunslet, West Hull and Wath Brow will be there again. I fear for my club Mayfield this coming season. We lost several players to the pro game last season and so far have lost three more with a possible fourth for the coming season. Its going to be a long hard season to survive this time. We only just managed it last year.
  8. That's all we need more Canadian and American teams coming into the League. The way they would swell the gates over here with their traveling supporters (NOT) would be a financial disaster for the British Clubs. At our level we are dependant on our home supporters but also an away following is a massive bonus. With less and less coming their way from the RFL any money through the turnstile is going to be a lifesaver for clubs like ours. When you look at the make up of the Toronto team its made up of British and Australian players. Why not produce your own rather than by success with an open cheque book.
  9. Are we going to rename as Rochdale Mayfield. While I do no in any way want to stop players playing at a higher level I fear for Mayfield's survival in the Premier League this coming season. The heart of the team has now been torn away as a result of last seasons and the coming seasons moves to the pro game. I would like to think that Hornets could help Mayfield player wise if that was at all possible. Mayfield performed wonders at the end of last season to survive in the Premier division. To do that again is going to be one hell of a task.
  10. Well done Thornhill. I did not see that one coming. Hunslet must have had an off day.
  11. Why was the game switched from Spotland to Mayfield at the last minute.
  12. Last season we signed quite a few players without championship experience and it showed. this season we look to be going down the same route. it does not inspire me with confidence.
  13. Your ignorance astounds me. When the game takes place in January I think that you will find that Mayfield are significantly smaller physically than Hornets. Unlike you I actually watch both clubs and can make an informed comment. If the Rochdale Observer is your source of information then you are clearly misinformed. You obviously totally hate Mayfield who in my opinion are far better run than Hornets. Own their ground and have money in the bank. Which is more than can be said of Hornets.
  14. A merry Christmas and a happy new year. Don't forget to bring your big coat !!!!!!!!!!
