  1. I'm over the moon with that draw That was the round I was most nervous about not being able to make in my attempt to follow the cup from 1st to last round. A local(ish) tie was crucial, and I've got a nice little 45 mile trip to Leigh I was dreading the Army away at Shots
  2. I've just read about this lad on fb funnily enough. Hasn't Nigel Jones offered to Ref a charity match for him? Fantastic gesture.
  3. So for the past few years I've tried to follow the cup from start to finish (you know, start at a game and follow the winner to the next and so on.....) but there has always been something in the way when the cup dates are announced - a family wedding one year, a holiday another etc. This year (so far) nothing! So I'm determined to do it*. So where to start? Shall I pick a draw at random from a hat? Or start with the closest geographically....? (I'm in a non-heartlands area) Any 1st round ties that stand out as potential crackers......? Any help/ideas gratefully received *an away tie in Catalan would be out of my price range so my journey would end there
  4. So after 8 minutes on hold to a premium rate number I was disconnected!! Actually not very happy right now.
  5. Awful Widnes performance. Bizarre reffing at times, incredibly inconsistent but (despite what some fans in the ground thought) that's not why Widnes lost. Early in the 1st half when Inu broke through on a free play and didn't pass outside to Marsh for a walk in was the moment I realised what type of game it would be. Pass and it's 4-6 ktc - game on! Shocking tackle from Albert, I'm not surprised McGillvary was filthy after it. 3 matches I reckon. I was also less than impressed some fans clapped him off, I hate stuff like that. Oh well, on to Wakey......
  6. I do think it's daft that they are playing each other again after 3 weeks. I know technically that was round 12 but still....
  7. Good to see that normal service has been resumed and Widnes are still capable of total collapses in the 2nd half - I was starting to worry
  8. Today's teams brought to you in association with Picow Engineering: Widnes - Hanbury, Marsh, Inu, Whitley, Ashall-Bott, Mellor, Gilmore, J.Chapelhow, Heremaia, Cahill, Dean, Wilde, Houston. Subs - D.Walker, Burke, Craven, Olbison. Warrington - Ratchford, Lineham, Goodwin, Atkins, Russell, Brown, Patton, Hill, Clark, Cooper, Currie, Hughes, Westwood. Subs - Crosby, Smith, Murdoch-Masila, Philbin.
  9. Can't see past a wire win. I don't think they are poor enough to loose 3 in a row. And their team looks a lot stronger than ours I'm afraid.
  10. Shocking from Bird there. Playing for the penalty and now cost his team possesion.
  11. It worked perfectly last week so they must have decided to stick with it. I think mixing it up would have made it harder to defend against though. It must have been pretty easy for Cas to predict by the 4th one......
  12. He managed to play for 20 minutes with a broken arm - even scoring a try in the process! And at least Widnes have waitines for the season to start this year before the long injuries kick in.... http://www.runcornandwidnesworld.co.uk/sport/15922308.Ah_Van_touches_down_as_he_plays_for_20_minutes_with_a_broken_arm/?ref=fbpg
