  1. Last league game at Knowsley Road. Should get a fair few viewers.

    Pleased the Hull game's been moved. Couldn't make it on the Friday because of Leeds Akkies annual end of season dinner. Now I can! Woohoo!

    Same here, pleased the Leeds game has been moved otherwise I would of missed it.

    Just booked the cheap train tickets we'll be in Hull for 11:35am, see you in the Three John's and then the New Clarence after the game for St Helens vs Castleford of which I think we'll all be cheering for St Helens to put a record score on the Tigers.


  2. are you SURE its the talk not something else? :D

    So she can now use her talent on the ref? :D

    seriously, though, it must have been great to make such a difference! well done!

    It's onwards and upwards John, although it really is a strange feeling when a supporter comes up to you and says that.

    Knowing that I'm actually helping to attract supporters to the club.

    I'm doing the Carnegie 9's on Wednesday at Headingley with a bloke from Leeds, then it's to the DW stadium a week on Friday for the final Bulls commentary of the season.

    But the good thing now is that my name has been passed on to the RFL so any big events such as Wembley, Old Trafford, Cardiff, Cup Games etc . . . . They can use me for them.


  3. Tell you what though, the Odsal core are top class. Every week, despite what's been on offer, the team come onto the pitch to a standing ovation. The Chairman comes onto the pitch, and given the period that he has presided over, was given a fair hearing and went off to cheers and applause. It's hard to think of many other clubs whose fans have been so understanding. I mean, Saints fans were booing at the first home game of the season, and Rhinos fans were booing early season also.

    I felt really proud of our lot this afternoon. We've got plenty to be optimistic about.

    Oh, and I spied 'Tommy the Cat' today... :D

    That's where I always sit mate, you should have come and said hello if I wasn't commentating a few other forum members off RL Fans came over to talk to me at half-time/full-time.


  4. Addy, Platt, and Kopczak (who IMO should be rewarded with a contract extension after the last few games, he's really upped his work effort) made some good yards for us today along with the usual gut busting efforts from Lynch, Langley and Scruton.

    Kearney's kick behind the Wakefield line for Whitehead to touch-down was sublime with pin-point accuracy. It was great to see the move unfold in front of me before it did.

    I thought Godwin took his tries well, especially his second just on the hooter, showing a nice little scoop from dummy half to crash over the line taking three Wakefield players with him.

    But the best try of the game for mine was the Addy break and the outside pass to Menzies to score our/his last try at Odsal this season.

    It couldn't have been scripted better could it.

    If Worrincy could play all next season like he did today then I would extend his contract by a year, because I thought he really stood up today to the terrace abusive chanters.

    He made a number of key crucial tackles early on and very nearly went over in the second half for his third try of the season (well did go over the line, he just couldn't get the ball down).

    I thought Sam Obst was Wakefield's best player who caused us no end of trouble close to the line with that dinky run of his and astute kicking game.

    Jeffries and Morrison also had fair games, putting some good runs and passes together.

    Yes it was scrappy at times with a period in both halfs when Wakefield would knock-on and then just seconds later from the scrum/play the ball, we would do likeiwse and vice versa, so come full time it was just so relieving to stop the bus at 12 and leave the ground with a win.

    I had a gander at the Marquee once I had packed everything away, and saw Peter Hood and the players all integrating with the supporters which was great to see.

    It really does feel as if the board are going full tilt at turning this ship around by maing her head in the right direction to a top four finish in 2011.

    COME ON YOU BULLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  5. I'm still at Odsal in the Marquee drinking at happy hour prices and all the talk is about my commentary today which is making me rather emotional.

    What's made today really great is after the game I met the visually impaired and disabled supporters who had taken in my commentary who all had encouraging words of praise.

    One of these supporters was blind and he said that because of my commentary he would defiantly be renewing his season pass next season.

    Because now that there is my commentary he said his daughter doesn't have to spend all game constantly telling him where the ball and action is.

    Unbeknown to me Peter Hood and Ryan Ducket spent five minutes listening in and said that it was fantastic and well worth the


  6. Cas simply have to beat Quins this weekend. If they do, they will almost certainly get the 8th place on points difference as theirs is much better than either Cru's or Wakey's. If they don't, Crusaders will get the spot. I can't see Wakey boosting their points difference enough, even if they win both their last games, each of which they could well win (Bradford and Salford are both there for the taking!).

    :(


  7. Had to be abandoned after a serious life threatening injury to Frankie Mariano (23) who couldn't leave the field of play.

    It's times like these where the world of Rugby League comes together and I really hope that Frankie Mariano is ok and makes a full recovery.

    It was a game that new Bradford signing Chev Walker, made his comeback in after a 11 month lay-off from a broken leg injury sustained in last seasons play-off game between Leeds and Hull Kingston Rovers at Haedingley.


  8. The former Great Britain manager, Hull Kingston Rovers, Hull FC and Widnes player is to join a long list of Rugby League greats at the George Hotel in Huddersfield on Sunday.

    Great news for a man respected throughout the sport of Rugby League.

    Although don't remind the Hull FC supporters of that missed kick at goal that lost them the 1958 Championship title.

    Sorry Rob


  9. The point you make about contribution to the competition is actually judged over a five year time span.

    So in 2012 we will have:

    2007: Play-Offs and Challenge Cup Semi-Final

    2008: Play-Offs and Challenge Cup Quarter-Final

    2009: 9th place finish and Challenge Cup 4th Round

    2010: ?? place finish and Challenge Cup Quarter-Final

    2011:

    That to the RFL will get us a point for contribution to the competition.
