  1. They don't need to be the same 250 each week, just add 250 to the gate. There will be plenty of neutrals who will be interested.
  2. Only time will tell, but for mine, that'll do. If he puts an extra 250 on the gate per home game, @ £20 for 13 home games that will be £65k, so I guess that may cover his wages.
  3. That'll do. And I would put Hall at full back. Looks like there could be some competition for places. Just need a couple of middles
  4. Not sure that discussing season ticket prices in a squad thread is appropriate, if you want to discuss can we add to another thread, so those of us that find it irrelevant can ignore. Thanks in advance.
  5. And it even made the news on BBC Look North
  6. After 25 years of Super League, should we not ask what has SL done for the sport in the northern hemisphere? Many would argue that nothing has changed in 25 years, and that to focus purely on the lack of expansion is glossing over the abject failure of super league. Super league has drained all the TV revenue for long enough, which has been squandered on funding southern hemisphere players 'holidays', rather than development of players in this country. We were told that this was the way forward, but sadly, the game in this country is slowly dying, choked from the top.
  7. He did indeed, I was still playing when the sharks were there, although rather old by then. If it is Brian Mac, as long as we are successful I can live with previous comments.
  8. Only one I had heard, doesn't mean I want him.
  9. I played in the same team with as Paul, but carried on for another 12 or so years. Did coaching juniors, on the committee, treasurer for 5 years, and I did work behind the bar.
  10. He is indeed, when Paul was at Crigg, he got Brian to do a team talk pre a cup final.
  11. France is 1 hour ahead, so the kick off will be 2:30 UK time.
  12. I did tell you I was going before I booked it, I assumed if you wanted to come you would have said. Anyway, I will bring thee a stick of rock back....
  13. Starting to get giddy now, flying out tomorrow. Really looking forward to a good, close game. Like I have said earlier, Fev by 8.
  14. Last time we played Holmes, having not played for 5 weeks, looked rusty to say the least. We are in a different place now, so roll on Sunday, and lets right the wrongs from from 25 years ago.
  15. For most sides, the support needed is financial. As no money goes to grass roots anymore, it just gets swallowed up by supergreed clubs. Possibly the development area's outside of the heartlands get some support, but if we continue to concentrate on top down development and leave the foundations to crumble, there will be no game in 20 years.
  16. Does anyone know where people are sitting in the ground?
  17. I don't know if this has been mentioned already, so apologies if it has, but when Featherstone went to Toronto in 2019, the RFL stated that whichever side won, met minimum criteria and would be promoted. My guess is this hasn't changed.
  18. As the lowest placed team, they cannot host the final
  19. He had been playing at York, and I'm not sure that once he gets a few games under his belt he will go back out on loan.
