  1. 2009 play offs Saints v Leeds at Knowsley Road
  2. Heard you've got a Carney/Massey or Ferres/Huby situation. Can't be good for the club.
  3. I imagine both days finishing with well supported Yorkshire clubs is intended to build and keep a crowd to the end of the day.
  4. The perfect replacement for Kenny Edwards.
  5. All the games so far have been a good watch. Some monster hits in the England Women game!
  6. In the past you could argue that Watts' attitude and professionalism was not up to international standard. I don't think you could say that this season and I think his performances have improved too, so his omission is probably the biggest shock. I can't see how he's suffered from the inclusion of Hastings, Austin & Coote though. Philbin has had a great season so if any of the big men were to make way for Watts then I would point to Chris Hill. But we know Bennett likes players who have been in and around the setup and big matches for a while, hence the inclusion of Hughes, Hall and McGillvary (and Ward and O'Loughlin). The exception to this rule is Stefan Ratchford. Is he injured? Grace should consider himself unlucky, particularly following the late withdrawal of Makinson. The outside backs certainly look like the weak link. Connor is the nearest thing to a proper centre after Gildart; maybe one of the Canberra lads or Jack Hughes will fill that spot? My 17 would be: 1. Zak Hardaker 2. Jermain McGillvary 3. Oliver Gildart 4. Jake Connor 5. Ryan Hall 6. Jonny Lomax 7. Jackson Hastings 8. James Graham (c) 9. Josh Hodgson 10. Alex Walmsley 11. Elliott Whitehead 12. John Bateman 13. Luke Thompson 14. George Williams 15. Chris Hill 16. Josh Jones 17. Joe Philbin
  7. What evidence do you have for that? How do you know he was on for no good reason?
  8. I disagree. He was 10m behind his own team and leaving the field. Rare for kicks to be charged down that far.
  9. What happened in the game was a freak. You could change it to possession determing the attacking team, but 99% of these incidents occur when a referee is hit by a kicked ball. So it would also be unfair to ask the defending team to defend another 6.
  10. When play is irregularly affected, as it was here, the attacking team get the feed. In these situations the attacking team is deemed to be the team with territorial advantage i.e. the team closest to their opponents goal line. The incident occurred in Canberra's half so Roosters were deemed to be the attacking team. Possession does not come into it. All above board, all correct. Just rotten luck for Canberra.
  11. Very disturbing noises coming from Odsal/Dewsbury, again. Players being offered to other clubs left, right and centre. Staff leaving. Today it's Carvell. Chalmers MIA Who'd be a Bradford supporter?
