  1. if you scrap promotion, where's the incentive for chairmen to put money into championship clubs, where's the incentive for fans, we've been through licencing once, i dont think we could stand it again.
  2. i think when Alan Marchant went to Fax, Colin Clift came the other way
  3. he's a top man and has my total respect
  4. have a great ime and all the best for 2020. all rovers aren't we
  5. very good at Leigh. good boot on him too
  6. thank you Andrew, glad you're keeping well, and pleased for the lad. i'm sure you will support him whatever he chooses to do. you're a good man
  7. Hi Andrew, thanks for the concern. don't want to go into detail, but having one of the worst years of my life. you are right, i'm really proud of Ben, but not seen him play for Rovers yet. hope you are keeping well
  8. this is rugby league, not rugby union. btw, we don't have rules, we have laws, or so i'm told.
  9. having watched the game on dvd, making the young lad on the wing a scapegoat is not on. right from the start the big difference was attitude. they had great line speed, aggressive tackling and played at a much faster pace. plus they had a game plan, we seemed to be making it up as we went along. turning the ball over early in the tackle count, falling off tackles. twice i saw one of our most experienced players turn his back on the ptb to run back to the defensive line and got caught napping. they put pressure on our kickers to good effect, we gave Finn and Sykes all day on the ball. and it seems we have no leader on the pitch. hoping for better things in future. Dewsbury gave us a few lessons, let's learn from them.
  10. i am told it's called a ninja tackle and is frowned upon, and Jack was always gonna get a ban for it
  11. that's true. also, not everyone goes to the match in a car.
  12. they had this ban at the lsv last season, and on the occasions that i went, i did what gingdong suggests. i had coffee and a sandwich sat in the car, bought a bovril at half time, and had a coffee back in the car while the traffic cleared
