  1. I'd read your post as they'd been announced today, hence was expecting 4 additional signings to the ones announced November/December time. Thanks for clarifying.
  2. If as alleged Fev are currently spending over £1m on player wages with only £180k central funding, spending to cap on SL funding shouldn't be an issue. The problems faced would be recruiting the necessary quality and expanding the backroom functions (physio, etc) to a higher level.
  3. I assume any lass who is prepared to gobble lobby would be acceptable for a Leyther bloke.
  4. In a way, I can foresee that this year will be similar to 2021 in that there will be a gap between the top two and the chasing pack. Last year, Toulouse stuck faith in a squad that had broadly grown and developed over a number of years and with a handful of additions it served them well. That's the real difference, in that Leigh have a virtually new squad and are quite likely to bank on bringing in more quality at the business end of the season. Will it work? It will be good finding out.
  5. Took quite a long time in the first place didn't it? The alleged incident was away at Oldham in late August, and he wasn't banned until December. It's always going to be difficult to deal with when it's one word against another. I seem to recall the same issues being highlighted when George Flanagan was banned for 10 games after being found guilty in our game against them in the cup in that it was his word against Jack Bussey's, as video evidence was inconclusive.
  6. There's clearly going to be someone disappointed but it's a long season and strengthening in any position is worthwhile if affordable. It also makes me wonder if the club know more than we do about Chizzy's ban appeal.
  7. Purée petit pois for Broncos supporters.
  8. Aye. Isn't the first time we'll have hears such comments, and won't be the last.
  9. It has been for friendly matches but won't for competitive games, as the rights for the games aren't held by individual clubs. Their may be live radio coverage on Rovers TV however, assuming the same as previous seasons.
  10. There's a post a couple up from your question which gives the different options for accessing Premier sports. Alternatively Rovers TV if you're happy to wait the 24-48 hours after the game is live.
  11. Pretty much first choice team at Fev this afternoon, so I'd assume reseves/academy v Oldham last night.
  12. Kopzcak's a Fev player. Agreed he'll be a loss for us if out for any period of time. Decent for us in spells, I'd be broadly happy with that as a performance for a pre season runout. Wakey look poor, and on that showing it's going to be a long season for them.
  13. Sorry to hear the news. Thoughts with friends & family.
  14. Could have been a real bit of publicity, a crowd draw and a big talent at that level for a couple of years. No idea where the fail falls between the club and the individual, but had he linked up with NW Crusaders, I wonder if he'd have managed something near a season with the benefit of far more publicity for the club and wider game.
  15. Is Gavin Henson due back for a second appearance?
  16. Yeah, I picked that up from the tweet. Looks a decent idea (and pie).
  17. Something for Broncos fans to look forward to, or far too expensive for RL?
  18. Going to be a risk for at least a while yet I'd suspect. I know more people who've caught it over the last month than the remainder of the last two years combined, including myself. Fortunately none with critical symptoms. Fingers crossed we don't get an outbreak across the club, or wider game.
  19. Kind of an opposite to intended thread post. Just watching a programme on 80s music. A quick Google tells me Annie Lennox is 67, as is Neil Tennant. My dad last year died at 74. Crickey, I'm getting old.
  20. £4-500 per year energy bills. Fantasy time for me: ours is around 10 times that, and that's before the recent price increases. That's one of the two reasons I'd like to be able to generate my own electric, subject to being able to find a way around the listed building consent issues.
