  1. You might want to check that with the group of lads from Sheffield waiting at the station following the game a couple of weeks ago.
  2. Looked like it could be pretty poor conditions from the forecast I saw at breakfast this morning. Won't be many stood on the terraces!
  3. Having not seen all the games, how much is the leaky left due to poor defence and how much is because opposition teams only attack down their right? I accept their may well be a link between those two things if opposition coaches are doing their homework but I wouldn't want to mix causation and correlation.
  4. How many times have we when announcing a signing included the phrase "we fought off interest from SL clubs"? Exactly the same concept imo. Nothing to see here, move along.
  5. You'll have to ask the coach. Squad announcements are 48 hours before the game, so due tomorrow.
  6. They already have gone FT, made the decision mid-season.
  7. As the only one of the three who own their ground, I'd suspect that stadium running costs and lost revenue from sales other than match day tickets would impact more than for Leigh or Fax.
  8. I'd think similar, other than possibly Doyle in for Blackmore if his groin is still giving him issues (noting I'm thinking back a couple of weeks here).
  9. Excellent news. In a heavily disrupted season, where numerous sides have faced different difficulties, let's hope what should be a cracking end to the season reaches the climax it deserves and wherever the final gets played (quite likely Toulouse) it's a game that lives up to the billing.
  10. Undoubtedly there are a multitude of factors, and each case will have been different, hence the different outcomes. Another example of that would be the awarding of 24 nil wins for cancelled games, compared to our deduction of points/win percentage.
  11. Have any of them been up before the RFL with any other charges recently? That's usually the considered factor: how long since they were last up for disciplinary.
  12. It's generally done if the clubs in question haven't been up for disciplinary actions in the recent past. Any trouble in the near future, and they'll have to pay the suspended element and not get a part or full suspension next time around.
  13. No, but it helps explain why it's likely to be busy.
  14. Ebor race meeting. Not the best weekend to book a York Hotel.
  15. Plenty of comments about how unfair it all is. I've yet to see a proposal for a better solution for all parties...
  16. Yes,early in the season. I believe they got closer to Toulouse score wise than anyone else has.
  17. Going FT may help with that, subject to wages offered, obviously.
  18. Because of Covid regs with regards to visiting France. No points to either team, no impact on win percentage either.
  19. Tbf, didn't we reach peak pizza in 2020? https://insidersport-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/insidersport.com/2020/08/19/super-league-delivers-papa-johns-partnership-for-post-game-boost/?amp=&amp_gsa=1&amp_js_v=a6&usqp=mq331AQKKAFQArABIIACAw%3D%3D#amp_tf=From %1%24s&aoh=16286808412838&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Finsidersport.com%2F2020%2F08%2F19%2Fsuper-league-delivers-papa-johns-partnership-for-post-game-boost%2F
  20. As you often comment Colin, it's cash that is important. If the club are cash poor, then your suggestion may be prudent. If they are not cash poor however, it would be detrimental in the longer term. I've no idea at all what the cash position is, however I've not seen anything to indicate the club isn't in a position to pay the fine.
  21. Not knowing at what level we'll be playing next year, or what funding will be was always going to make recruitment difficult for next year. This looks a solid base for me, irrespective of where we end this season. Gale particularly a standout to me, given the rate of his development and performances this year.
