  1. Might as well rename it the Yorkshire league!
  2. Don't think his discipline would be too great! Might even give Lee Doran a run for his money in the 'penalties conceded' category. Or maybe I'm stretching it a bit with that one?!
  3. Let me guess....big fella, shaven headed, got a tattoo on his neck? He was the clown that almost quite literally threw myself and a couple of other Leythers out of the ground at their place earlier in the season (after the game I might add, as if we'd be going anywhere other than out of the ground?!). From what we were told at the time, he is an ex-bouncer who is banned from doing the doors these days so 'works' at the rugby for his fix of pushing and shoving.
  4. Can't say I'm particularly confident to be honest, was hoping for success in the NRC as much as the league once we knew top spot was out of reach. We finished 9 points clear at the top in 2001 and then duly cocked it up in the play-offs (twice - lost at home to Oldham, beat yourselves then threw away a half time lead against the Smogs), though I can't see any signs at the minute of a similar collapse from Fev.
  5. Not to mention Jason Demetriou.......
  6. I'm not saying that it will happen, but take it from a team that knows - it counts for nowt when you reach play-off time.
  7. Thought I'd get this in before anyone mentions about our lack of away support tonight, but it seems that the M62 was shut in both directions from about 6pm onwards which meant that our club coach(es) couldn't get over to Yorkshire, presumably along with anyone who was driving over after work etc - in the circumstances, I don't think we did too badly in the end!
  8. Did that one end up in a penalty by any chance, Chris?!
  9. I hope Wakefield stay up, to be honest. We get on well with their lot after we played them in the cup last year but it's hardly a good day out going there. If Widnes are the ones going up then it means our local derby will be Halifax!
  10. It's a possibility, after all winning the Challenge Cup wasn't including in the 'box ticking' list
  11. It isn't going to be one of us mere mortals. I'm not even that convinced that it will be Widnes. Super League aint all it's cracked up to be anyroad.
  12. We were really, really sheeite last year so there's your answer
  13. And I meant we'll be there for 6am!
  14. It's not being cancelled, just downsized. For what it's worth, we've got a minibus full as well independantly from LISA and I'd expect a few to travel by car straight from work etc. Been a bit disappointed with our away support in recent weeks, but it seems to cost a fortune to travel away these days.
  15. Could get Baddiel and Skinner to whip a few up out of a ball and custard.
  16. God no, not after what he was like when we played your lot in the NRC last year!
  17. You call that early doors, Robin?! We're hoping to be in Fev for 6!
  18. Any idea what time the Blue Lagoon opens on Thursday night, folks?
  19. Fev 34 Leigh 14 We're far too disjointed in attack and I think I've got more pace than our backs. You best try and find where you've been hiding that trophy cabinet of yours for all these years.
  20. Always seems to be the Yorkie clubs that complain so you could be on to summat Current list is Halifax, Batley and Keighley (our past three home games), though the most entertaining one is Batley considering all 20 of them had the seated South Stand behind the sticks to themselves, so god knows how they heard owt! Don't think you've anything to worry about there, we started and finished well at Barrow on Saturday...shame about the hour in between!
  21. I reckon they should get a letter in the League Express and we can have our own private competition...on this evidence, they might have to make Thursday's game a 9pm kick off because of the 'bad language' reputation of both clubs!
  22. Think the numerous mudbaths earlier in the season (against ourselves and the TV game against 'Fax spring to mind) have pretty much consigned it for the rest of the year - a pitch is never going to recover after the battering it's just had, especially with the football season as well.
  23. The rumour mill suggests otherwise (indeed, said rumours indicate that the publicised injury wasn't the actual one that he suffered)
  24. That wasn't just the dual contract system though as he was on loan at Cas as well - if you include Wigan reserves then he's played for four different sides this year!
  25. What you have to bear in mind is that 'Haven can't afford such players anyroad, hence why they cancelled McNally's dual contract if memory serves me right. I thought we'd taken a good tactic with the likes of Emmitt and Mitchell who, at the start of the season, seemed they would only be recalled in the most desperate of situations, but instead they've stepped up to Super League level and now we're missing them hugely, as would any side who suddenly finds some of their best players playing at the top level week-in, week out!
