  1. I disagree. It's one of only two pieces of silverware that we realistically can win, and I for one want to see us lift it! It would appear in all likelyhood I'll be waiting another season for that to happen though...
  2. Doesn't sound too promising today, but we didn't do too badly last season after our home game against Whitehaven did we?
  3. Isn't that known as the luck of the draw; some are far easier than others We're an optimistic lot aren't we?
  4. Looks like a few changes from the Sheffield game. I wonder when the two Papuans will be making their competitive bow? http://www.pontefractandcastlefordexpress....w-at.6062819.jp
  5. Last season, despite us doing pretty well, I only managed to see one win in the 5 games I saw, which included 4 home games. I've bought a season ticket this season. How well will we do at home this season, given my apparent curse? A bit of fun...
  6. To be honest, I suspect there will be a few changes throughout the season in several positions, as form and performances dictate, as we appear to have greater strength in depth this season in my opinion. I was only quoting the "full strength" comment from the original article however, which would indicate for the time being at least, Sam is in pole position for one of the centre positions in the starting line up. Well done to him!
  7. I know. I would have expected that he would not be 1st choice centre this year however given some of our other signings, especially given many of his appearances last year came from the bench to the wing. I'm delighted to be proved wrong though, and hope he has a great season.
  8. http://www.pontefractandcastlefordexpress....inst.5998497.jp Looks pretty good to me. Only real surprise in their for me is Sam Smeaton in the starting line-up, but as a young lad coming through the ranks, if he has been going well in pre-season, then that can only be a plus to me. Will be interesting to see who would drop out if we only had the usual 4 players on the bench. You can't beat a bit of genuine competition for places to keep everyone on their toes.
  9. Interesting how the Halifax Courier seems to get a better interview with Darryl than the Ponte & Cas does. http://www.halifaxcourier.co.uk/local/Hali...view.6001054.jp
  10. Out of interest, does anyone know how many we actually sold in the end?
  11. Anyone know anything about Zak Hardaker and Aaron Lyons? Not names I've seen before.
  12. Other than all the other issues regarding relocation out of Fev, that's the one issue I really don't understand. Unless he knows something we don't about a sudden huge crowd spurt, what bigger fixtures is he thinking we can't manage at the CMS?
  13. Or according to Rodney Walker we are. http://www.sportinglife.com/rugbyleague/ne..._Wakefield.html
  14. I'm guessing Michael Coady won't be turning out for us. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/rugby_leag...eds/8424737.stm
  15. I've been told Wakey are having the same problems re supply of shirts for Christmas, again supplied by Prostar. I'd hope the club has a contract for delivery by a set date, so that some benefit could be gained from the late arrival of stock.
  16. I have to admit, the design does look kind of fimiliar to me. http://www.halifaxrlfc.co.uk/
  17. Looks a much paler blue than I would have expected in the P&C pic. http://www.pontefractandcastlefordexpress....-the.5915847.jp
  18. http://www.pontefractandcastlefordexpress....ve-a.5914700.jp I guess this answers the question as to what cover we have in the front row...
  19. If any of our 2nd rows were to move forward to prop, personally I would expect it to be Ross Divorty. I also think that some of the players that Mark has listed as U21 will be nearer the first team than he thinks. I can't see that for example Leeds would have seen sending their fringe players on loan to us to play reserve grade as a great benefit, when they were already playing in Leeds' own reserve side.
  20. It will be 17 for me, though obviously not all on the pitch at once.
  21. That's the point though, according to the statement from Hunslet he was offered a contract but turned it down. Seems a bit strange to me given the reason of "a new challenge", but good luck to the lad if that's what he wants. Hope it doesn't leave us a bit short of cover in the front row, as Widnes fans all seem to rate Morrison far more in the 2nd row.
  22. As if by magic... http://www.totalrl.com/index.php?showtopic=194224
  23. I must be missing something somewhere (wouldn't be the first time I've been told that).
  24. Makes a bit of fun in the off season though doesn't it? 1 more to add to the list? As in leaving us, or one of the current list set to sign elsewhere?
