  1. Radio Cumbria reported they had received a text from someone saying that we should appoint a SL coach. Where on earth does he think the money would come from to appoint say Darryl Powell. Another coach would also say the players he wanted to sign. Again whose going to pay the bills.
  2. I thought the summarizer on radio cumbria was very poor. I'm not sure whether Daly was given a red or yellow card but he must be disciplined. We have enough problems without a player remaining of the field. I thought he had a one match ban after last week. When does this take effect. As far as the match is concerned I am totally speechless but very disappointed. After todays matches we might have had Leeds playing at Craven Park along with Bradford but not now.
  3. Half time losing 14-2 and seems to be the same old story of errors and penalties. Dewsbury drawing 6-6 with Halifax and Batley look like being thumped by Leigh. Things aren't good.
  4. I think there are 4 Wigan players in the Swinton side.
  5. I see that Joe Bullock has been selected for the Knights Squad. I'm surprised no mention on here.

    I take the various points but surely to give in now and accept relegation speaks of total disaster. It means that gates will fall, sponsors will pull out and players will leave even if they are on a 2 years contract. It looks as if Ottowah will certainly not enter the league next season but it will still be enormously difficult to get immediate promotion.

    The doom & gloom merchanes are out again. Let's give the players, coaches & BOD a chance until it is mathematically not possible to stay up. We are playing better than we did and apart from some defenses lapses we played well and the players gave plenty of effort. The top half of the Championship are way ahead of the bottom half. The gate today was over 1600 but there was a fair Leigh following.
  8. You're right today is his 8th game.
  9. That's a relief to us Sheffield beat Dewsbury 28-22 tonight. Sorry Dewsbury supporters.

    I picked up the following press gossip. If this happens it does not look good for Ch1 Although it had been hoped that Ottawa would be ready for 2020, it is believed they haven’t been able to satisfy the requirements laid down for them by the RFL in time, and so they will now target 2021 – which is also expected to see the introduction of a New York based team. Whether those two teams would go straight in to the Championship, rather than League 1, may become a discussion point in the near future. With League 1 clubs expecting to be cut away from the professional game at the end of the current round of central funding, shoehorning the transatlantic sides straight in to the Championship appears to be the preferred option of many.

    If things aren't changing is Ottowa going to Ch1?
  12. Fair comment Lion Heart. This was only my optimistic outlook and your probably right. Who knows. Anyway my wife says all this time on calculations keeps me off the streets. LOL
  13. I like your confidence NWDuk and Crown Flatter but this is how the matches should pan. In theory Swinton don't seem to have any further victories. On this theory I think the finish positions would be Dewsbury 16 Barrow 15 Batley 15 Swinton 14 This seems very,very close. Everything seems to hinge round Batley v Dewsbury, Swinton v Barrow, Barrow v Batley I'm sure my figures are way out but it gives me some optimism for Barrow.
  14. I agree. I fear for the future. Ottowa are coming in next year but will it be Ch or Ch1. If Ch surely only one club will go down. Am I dreaming or is this possible.
  15. There seems to be just 3 or 4 readers of this Forum who seem to be rattling on about changing the coach. It was different when werhad some good results and performances only a few weeks ago.
