  1. So what is the actual rule, contact with the head off or not. Don't think anyone really knows, including the officials. Seems to change from 1 week to the next.
  2. I think it's all about timing, no one knows when the game of rugby league can recommence, the league season for community teams has been put back until april on paper, and with the challenge cup usually starting January/February time, I think the authorities don't realistically think the game could be up and running in those early months. So easy decision therefore is to rule out the community clubs from the off for ease of running the competition as smoothly as can be. Obviously disappointing for all concerned but probably for the best really. The fact is, no one knows what's going to happen come 2021.
  3. Noticed in a report that it could be unlikely that the community teams will be entered into the competition this year. Not surprising really, however it's something that I'm sure all competing teams enjoy playing in and will surely be a miss for all

  5. Open age rugby league at amateur level has been put on hold until at least January or February, for cup matches, presumably the start of the barla and challenge cups, with the competitive league fixtures apparantly put back from first weekend in March to first weekend in April. There has been mutterings of a pilot scheme however beforehand. Are there any details of this and what actually does the pilot entail. Anyone heard anything, or put a hand up to enter?
  6. I also think teams will struggle when, for example Wath Brow, a prem team play a fellow Cumbrian team, Askam,a division 3 team who are currently bottom. Especially if it's 4 or 5 games in, brow are top unbeaten,in the Cumbrian region,and Askam haven't won a game. All theoretical, may not happen between these 2 teams, but regionalising isn't all as rosy as first thoughts can be, especially when teams are up against it player standards wise. This is where the ncl needs to be careful in the splitting up of leagues, top v bottom can be a very big gap in standards, and players, once getting beat regularly will be reluctant to play, no matter what the derby situation is.
  7. Don't think clubs can afford not to play again until next season, so just scrapping the season isn't the answer I don't think.
  8. Is it being used for the rochdale players to step up or toronto to step down, the gulf between championship 1 and super league is massive, especially for players that have just come from ncl ranks. If Toronto are relying on this then there'll be a rude awakening for both parties.
  9. Rochdale have a squad of their own, they've heavily recruited from the amateur ranks, now having a squad of 25+ players. They relied on dual registration with st Helens and Warrington in recent years, so probably didn't have as large a squad, and now it's Toronto they're relying on. I do wonder will the fringe players in the rochdale squad be happy not getting regular games, if any at all, now they have a larger squad, plus the addition of Toronto players to swell the numbers by more, and how easy will it be to get released if possible, having signed professional forms. I feel there'll be some players isolated,and kicking their heals weekly in the rochdale squad, but will Toronto, or Rochdale give a hoot about these players.
  10. Gonna be interesting who benefits most, players from Toronto stepping down to play or Rochdale players stepping up to play. When the Toronto players step down, where do the surplus Rochdale players then play?
  11. https://www.skysports.com/amp/rugby-league/news/12215/11608747/sean-oloughlin-undecided-over-wigan-future-but-wants-to-tour-with-great-britain Sean oloughlin talks about his future, including the possibility of playing for gb at seasons end
  12. Example, wath brow want st pats home postponed 1st sat July, Lock lane want st pats away postponed 2nd sat July, Thatto Heath want st pats home postponed 3rd sat July, Siddal want st pats away postponed 4th sat July, St pats themselves want 1st sat in aug postponed, Skirlaugh want st pats away postponed 2nd sat in aug St pats could have no fixtures for 6 weeks with no team requesting anything out the ordinary, ie requesting 1 fixture each to be postponed. Could easily happen and that's just 1 club affected. Just shows that the solutions aren't as straight forward as it may seem. Imagine teams requesting 2 fixtures off, teams could go numerous weeks without fixtures, then having to cram midweek fixtures in when this is something teams are also trying to avoid.
  13. Late August/ beginning of September is start of winter season is it not?
  14. nutgrove and rainhill had teams in st helens area around the early 90s mark i think. another 2 teams to have come an gone.
  15. portico panthers became portico vine (new owners/commitee formed) which then folded due to st helens wild boars forming, were mainly the same players, just a different name and venue. think sutton smithy manor/west sutton went the same way due to this new team. too many teams in one small area can have this effect.
  16. think carr mill had a team in st helens too. celtic crusader do you remember? also swinton vic and salford juniors
  17. also portico panthers, green dragon st helens, sutton smithy manor, teams that have come an gone.
  18. widnes st bedes, pendle lions or was it witches?, st helens hare and hounds, redhill castleford, lunts heath widnes, preston fulwood are all teams ive played in the past, all finished now i think!
  19. wrong... thatto heath v haresfinch, the hattons solicitors st helens cup final tues night 5th oct, 7.30 ko is the last competitive fixture at knowsley road.
  20. occasionally puletua? even more occasionally frodsham,cant remember when he last played 1st team, or even put a shirt on!!
  21. The England fall-out squad so far is: Tom Briscoe (Hull FC) Jodie Broughton (Salford City Reds) Sam Burgess (South Sydney) Tony Clubb (Harlequins RL) Jamie Langley (Bradford Bulls) Andy Lynch (Bradford Bulls) Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook (Harlequins RL) Nick Scruton (Bradford Bulls) Michael Shenton (Castleford Tigers) Paul Sykes (Bradford Bulls) Joe Westerman (Castleford Tigers) Kirk Yeaman (Hull FC) who from this lot do you think will be in the final 24 man squad. a lot of just average super league players here for my liking. id say 3 or 4 at most. also whys widdop not been announced, melbourne arent in the play offs, an he looked a better option than some of the above.
  22. firstly the thread was repeated accidently, and i gather you condone kicking someone whether it be half hearted or not. i also dont condone spear tackles.
  23. joel tomkins kick on a player was deemed to be ok, not even put on report. will anything be done now the game has finished. remember keith mason got 3 matches for standing on fielden. is this offence as bad?
  24. ian millward had loads of success at saints as head coach and also had a head coach role at wigan, 2 of super leagues glamour coaching jobs yet only got a sniff over in austailia as an assistant coach. think it was at north queensland and canberra. i dont think the aussies give much recognition to coaches who have done well in the english super league, daniel anderson being a slight exception, i just think they dont regard the english super league as being anything special.
