  1. Good move by York. It’s obviously worked well for Fev this year (especially) York fans - just get ready to be called Cas Reserves / York City Tigers by the wags on here for evermore
  2. Fev only had 9 players at the start of this season and no coach
  3. Well done to Toronto on gaining promotion to super league from a Fev fan. They’ve done it in the right way by working their way up from Champ 1 and Championship and fully deserve their promotion. I personally think that they will have enough to compete in SL and stay there next season; especially if they can use this success to attract some top players to add to their squad. Well played this evening and congratulations
  4. Heart says Fev head says TWP. But No pressure on Rovers it’s all on Toronto so maybe just maybe ...... i can dream but honestly think it will be Toronto 22 - The Mighty Featherstone Rovers - 12
  5. how good was that? awesome display from 1-17. Heroes the lot of them. We've gone from no coach and a very scratchy team at the start of the year to 80 mins from SL. Can't quite believe it. We're massive underdogs - just how we like it. All the pressure is on TWP next week so maybe, just maybe we can sneak a win at the Lamport Stadium (w'eve done it before :))
  6. Thanks for the kind words about Fev. PS bizarrely my real name is Andy Knight and when I saw your post I thought I must have had more than I thought last night when celebrating and had posted something without remembering:)
  7. Don’t think Luke is available- one match ban for sliding in with knees according to RfL disciplinary website
  8. I came away feeling robbed but having reflected I tend to agree that we let that one get away from us - yes I’m convinced Ormy did get the ball down (and Sutty in the first half too) but we’d let them right back into the game by the end of the 1st half and most of the second so only have ourselves to blame. if you look at recent results we’ve struggled to beat any of our top 5 rivals so are probably right where we should be in 5th. its on to LSV next week and see what happens I guess
  9. Do you know for definite they won’t play next year? Might do as they’ve done this year and play a series of friendlies? I watched the game and there didn’t seem to be any attempt to commemorate the end of an era at the end of the game so could suggest they think they will be around next year. Eg no team photo etc i could be wrong but prefer to wait to hear from the club officially rather than speculating
  10. Pleased with Minns for next year. Was impressed with him when he was on loan with us previously.
  11. Brad Day Wellington Albert McCllenand (sp?)
  12. Colin - thanks for organising this this season. Speaking personally whats been suggested as a solution seems sensible to me
  13. Regards speculation that we’ve approached Spedding from Barrow. Ex Saints player but can’t say I know much about him - or indeed if it’s true at all as nothing announced our end.
  14. I was just curious as to why Wigan had recalled them. Has there been some fall out between Swinton and Wigan? Do Wigan have lots of injuries and so need them back? There could be lots of reasons. BTW - I’m not a swinton fan so it doesn’t affect me either way.
  15. Any reason given by Wigan why they have recalled their players?
  16. I agree Blues Ox- any game in recent times against fax either at Post Office Rd or the Shay has that added spice. But most at Fev would count Cas as our closet rivals even though the opportunities to play them in the past decade or so have been limited to pre-season friendlies, the couple of occasions when they got relegated and one cup game.
  17. Fev and Leigh were criticised last season for not being able to field full squads. In response Fev introduced a reserves team which has seen some players step up when required. Its been mentioned that they’re managing to find opponents this year without a formal set up in place but some of these opponents are currently from SL from memory- eg city of Hull, Wakefield. Who it sounds like would no longer be available to play. So instead of us being a position to play week in week out against SL reserves - which is more than we get to do at the moment- it sounds like we’d have A decision to make on the future of our reserves. Which seems a shame
  18. seems to be another example of how a small minority don’t seem to be able to go to games without being embarrassing - which obviously we’ve suffered from recently. is it a society thing or is it creeping back into RL? I’m not sure but be interesting how the RFL react in view of the fines we’ve been levied recently
  19. We should have too much for them but then I recall saying the same earlier in the season before trudging away dejected from post office road when Finn and Sykes did a number on us. Ours was a different team back then - no Chissy or Albert or Johnson for instance but we still need to be on top of our game to ensure a win and get a stronger foothold in the playoffs. UTR
