  1. Coote back is a big boost, hopefully we see Simm at centre but assume it will be Welsby or Costello.
  2. Meaning? I'd be delighted if TWP do well. I don't think that they have put themselves in a particularly strong position to do so though, which is disappointing to me. I also think that the TWP in SL premise is fundamentally flawed but hope to be proven indisputably wrong.
  3. TWP have horribly wasted their marquee spots and have what I consider to be a poor coach in charge. The result is unfrotunately the farce we're seeing now. I'm sure they'll go better back on home soil but that was an embarrassment and the weather saved them from a similar scoreline last week against Saints when they were also dreadful, in a horribly embarrassing "home" game event for which they also deserve the blame. Nothing I have seen has given me cause to change my initial view that this whole experiment is more than a bit of a joke.
  4. He must have all his excellent games when I'm not watching. Never been a fan.
  5. He tackles a lot and is enthusastic, that's it. Maybe he'll add some impact with the ball but he's miles off yet IMO.
  6. Morgan Smithies? Good defender but not seen anything from him to suggest he should be playing for Engalnd yet.
  7. Been saying for years they need to move him on. Hull FC as a club are not ruthless enough.
  8. Great to see Tomkins in this form. Thought he was done for but looks really sharp and has a yard of pace back. Great news for England before the ashes series.
  9. And there in one sentence (if true) is why Hull are not a club with a winning culture
  10. What absolute nonsense. Lomax played very well. Makinson should have scored when he knocked on from what was a fabulous piece of Lomax play. Also, when Makinson came up short for the no try it was very quick thinking from Lomax to ship the ball over the top - Makinson should really have moved the ball outside him and we were in.
  11. The only reason people post things on Twitter is because they want other peiople to read it. Silverwood could have just kept his words to himself, he didn't because he wanted the interested world to read them. Bitter, attention seeking idiot is where I would file it.
  12. Wowsers, that Roosters team looks scary even without Cordner (and Cronk / Latrell)
  13. 15,000 at average ticket price of say £30 plus hospitality - big earner for Saints and makes perfect sense to play at home.
  14. Haven't seen anything to suggest he'll ever be much of a player. Just taking up an academy player's spot IMO.
  15. I think we'll probably be at full strength other than Coote & Percival, although Grace came off with a knock at the weekend. Fingers crossed he'll be fine.
  16. Sounds like another classy Lomax display. Good result leading into next week
  17. Thanks chap but I think it only shows top20 or so rather than an ability to search for any player?
  18. Does anyone know of anywhere you can get opta stats for players in previous seasons? The superleague website seems to only show the top20 in any given category for previous years and I'd like to be able to look beyond that. Any ideas?
  19. More confident having seen the squads (and I think people might be reading a little bit too much into Saints' performance last week). Saints by 8
  20. Percival doesn't lack physicality and is not a poor defender. Some really odd comments, but great news for Saints.
  21. Of course match promotion and social media have nothing to do with how Gelling chooses to conduct himself and nobody has suggested otherwise. If you think I have no regard for a victim of domestic violence that's fine, this is an internet forum and you don't know me, but clearly it's an odd stance to take. It's possible to comment on potential bad news about Gelling by referencing OTT tubthumnping about Gelling a fortnight or so ago, whilst still understanding that the human side and rugby side of this are separate points and many moons apart in seriousness.
  22. Not much to be bitter about when it comes to SL and Wire my man, no offence. Fitzpatrick (more than once), Wire twitter account, Lineham, Matt Davis for starters so far. Each to their own, you're obviously one of the ones who likes that stuff, I know a section of your fans think it's all a bit small time. KF set out to actively and publically rub another club's face in it re: Gelling and now probably wishes he hadn't - that's all I was saying. Back to Gelling - I imagine he won't have to wait long for Wire's response to this, if the rumours are true it won't take long to get there.
  23. Of course the main story here is the victim and I wish her well in her recovery and life back home. Re: my comment on your CEO - i you set out to be the wind up merchants of RL from the top down, you need to be big enough to accept that people will point out the sillier statements/actions when things go wrong. I'm struggling to think of any openly disrespectful comments from other clubs this year but can probably list four or five for Wire and we're only two games in. Live by the sword etc
