  1. will be competitive in the form of a 2 tier league. teams in the top half like Ottowa, Barrow, Newcastle, Rochdale and maybe Hunslet playing each other should all be tough games. Maybe add Keighley, Donny and Worky for tough away games but the rest wont be up to much
  2. fair point, suppose you can claim he was as he will have earned his call up from his performances in a barrow shirt. he was a quality player for us in the little time we had him
  3. found this - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_European_Cup Ireland beat Serbia on 18th October 2009 in the European cup, both Liam Harrison and Dave Allen scored for Ireland.
  4. Liam Harrison and Dave Allen for Ireland in 2009? got a feeling Liam was named in squad but maybe pulled out injured, could be wrong though.
  5. really hoping for a tough tight game but I think this will be a game too far for Salford, saints by 16 points (at least) for me.
  6. yeah a great signing. I thought a couple of seasons back when we beat Haven in the league 1 play off final he was outstanding, a proper leader on the field too.
  7. i'd rather watch a team of players wanting to win, we would have got that from DR as they all would want to prove themselves as opposed to what we had this season. hope you are proven regarding it paying off in the long term and also hope the club has plans to make it to the long term. its the short term future I worry about.
  8. hope what you say is right and that the players we have stuck by (the ones worth keeping) show the same loyalty next season to the club.
  9. all of our rivals this season used DR heavily and they survived where we are now relegated. If you agree with it or not, teams who strengthen their side with DR players get better results, with Workington the exception it appears. end of the day, rugby league is a results based business. we are now going into league 1 where we will lose a lot of income as a result which will knock the club back.
  10. there are amateurs who have been asked to go to the raiders in the past and have declined as they can earn more working an overtime on a sunday and still play for their amateur side on a Saturday. As for the dual reg, I think we missed out big time by not doing this. I get all the comments about its unfair on lads at the club who get dropped but in the big scheme of things, us not going for DR has probably what caused us to be relegated. the other teams who we were battling with to stay up all used DR and it payed off for them. We are now in a position where we are going into a league whe
  11. Steve probably ain’t happy but when some of your big signings don’t show for you what can you do. Taking Hock out of it, Spedding was the biggest disappointment for me. he ruined us at last years summer bash for Sheffield and looked pure quality. Then pulls on a raiders shirt and goes to rats. I also believe a game plan of 5 drives didn’t help him so tactically he was probably penalised. Maybe as a club we are better bringing in players to play to a specific game plan. If we are to keep our style of up the middle, let’s sign some big forwards rather than expensive backs who are not part of a g
  12. Hodgson and Roby would be tough to split. i'd maybe start with roby then bring Hodgson on as they are starting to tire a bit. I like clark but a few good games doesn't move him above the other 2 for me.
  13. sad to say but the NRL team is miles ahead of anything we could put together. Be like the international game has been for years, we could pretty much match them upfront but the halves and backs are a different gravy to what we can offer.
  14. The ref doesn't make a team miss tackles, make a team play with no enthusiasm, have no game plan! I for one don't care who the ref is and I think Hewer is pretty decent to be fair.
  15. when did the fans take the blame? the one up rugby is not impressive though
  16. Same experience for me. Only been twice but the Catalan fans were friendly and welcoming, same as you find when you go to Toulouse.
  17. who from our current squad would be dropped for any of these listed above? I don't think many would make our starting 17 if any.
  18. I hope we play our strongest side, go for the win and hope for another home draw in the next round. plus I've already got my Wembley ticket so heres hoping! sundays game is one we wont win for me, too short a turnaround/rest time and against one of the best teams in the league, too much against us.
