  1. Doesn't do lock lane justice calling Oldham very poor, I think lock lane caused Oldham many problems, and made Oldham look poor. Well done lock lane on beating a team a league above and good luck in the next round
  2. Is it any surprise though, very frustrating for those that want to get stuck into it, rather than throw a team together a day or 2 before.
  3. I generally do the nrl one also as I prefer that format over the super league one. I used to enjoy the league express one but that stopped a few years ago, that was a different format again, all good if you enjoy fantasy style games.
  4. Yep agree, different types of fantasy game, different format, different rules. But still an option for those interested. Pity the super league one isn't as big, and probably never will be if not advertised properly
  5. The nrl equivalent was out just before Christmas and their season starts after super league also. This also is a cracking fantasy competition to enter, especially if your into nrl rugby league.
  6. There's been some cracking upsets over the years, and a few amateur teams have done it more than the once
  7. I'll be watching a live game, but being able to watch another or others on tv, probably on catch up is an added bonus.
  8. Details of where the money's going, rather than generalisation would be a start.
  9. On which platform Gav, BBC or our league, or something else. Love watching the early round ties, especially the amateur teams who always seem to put a great performance on for the viewers
  10. Well remembered regarding the west Wales, didn't think that was the first couple of rounds though, the ones I remembered were the Wigan st pats v Leigh miners, and Rochdale Mayfield v North Wales games. Thatto heath v Dewsbury and Siddal v Toronto too.
  11. Have they ever not been local, don't think they've ever ventured too far even before the covid excuse
  12. I still think it's a travesty how the barla comps are treated, the barla national cup at openage level has very few participants again, and the Yorkshire cup, Lancashire cup and Cumbria cup were also prestigious cups to win. Not any more, compared to how they were.
  13. So nothing decided as of yet, wonder if it's anything to do with covid, games being cancelled maybe, so not committing to anything.
  14. Usually the BBC and our league show a game, nothing been advertised as yet. Wonder if they're going to show any games this year from the early rounds.
  15. Wonder who the BBC will stream live, any particular ties stand out that would be favourite to be picked?
  16. But no mention of Underbank, just Askam and Gateshead, guess they've gone then, cheers.
  17. Have Underbank dropped out of the ncl, only mentions 2 replacements for Askam and Gateshead
  18. How have both clubs fared over the last few seasons? Nice to see new faces entering the ncl leagues, and showing ambition. Hope it goes well for both clubs.
  19. New teams or returning teams to the ncl, hopefully theyre upto standard and improve a very good competition
  20. Like I said, the rules to allow them to sign on for a very last game rather than having a deadline to sign on for would stop this and is a problem, not the fact they're ex pro. This way they'd have probably played maybe a minimum more games. The fact they're dropping down to lower levels, probably a level easier for them is beneficial for the team they're with, helping out, improving the players around them etc etc, but is also a detriment to the opposition and game itself if it becomes a lopsided game or damages the players they're up against. It is a problem but the individuals themselves probably need to look at the overall situation and think is this really a good thing, The league does too, but stopping players playing because they are ex pro, isnt the answer for me, but some rules do need sorting out to prevent whats going on.
  21. Agree again, but why would an ex pro level player want to be playing at such a low level of rugby, especially so many at once. It would show what sort of personality they really are. If that's the level they see themselves at, basically a walk in the park, then that's a problem in itself. Can't be stopped as players can choose to play for anyone, anywhere, but surely if the ex pro is still up to a decent level of standard then he want to carry on playing at a standard appropriate.
