  1. Tried to keep out of this topic, but I work with fans from Warrington, wigan, saints, leigh, widnes and Bradford and I've not spoke to one who actually cares about what Folau has tweeted or that he has signed for cats. Not a single fan and i speak to hundreds. They just don't care, if aclubs thinks they need to put a match as a pride festival, the question is why wait for Folau to arrive. And I won't boo him at Warrington ( I don't boo any player).
  2. I think he is embarrassing himself and a great club in HKR.
  3. You really are clutching at straws, you could level that accusations against quite a few players on both sides who tried to get an advantage. On the alleged gouging he thought he was the victim of an attempt, no evidence was available to back up his claim, but that doesn't make him a cheat. And although Warrington were under the cosh because of Hills tackle they were coping quite well and even though they lost Cooper for 10 they were very close on levelling the score right upto the last second.
  4. Too much water to go under the bridge, if only sport was so easy to predict.
  5. Keep reading and hearing that saints will walk it this year, can't see it myself. With an unchanged squad they should start well but I think other clubs will improve later when their new signings settle in and I can see Wigan, Warrington, hull and one or two others having a big say when the trophies are handed out.
  6. He showed what he can do against SRD, I know it was a preseason game but the time he spent last year and a full preseason have got him in good shape.
  7. One thing contested scrums did was tire the forwards quicker, which created opportunity for quick agile backs to make breaks. I remember you couldn't just rest in the scrums because of the ability to push and gain possession. Although many a scrap would start at scrums with front rows kicking out .
  8. Didn't some of the bigger attendance figures happen in the period of no relegation, the figures are only going to improve with the clubs being more successful at marketing event based games not on relegation.
  9. Expect if Toronto need help clubs at the top end will loan players.
  10. Maybe not but as most rl fans are always looking for the negative in any story it was easy to come to that conclusion.
  11. He may be a typical negative fan but he does have a point, the club doesnt get the best out of the area it has but under the present team they are starting to put building blocks in place. The typical knockers like Tre cool simply look for the negative on any positive, I want to see 13k of home fans as an average in the next few years with a few sell outs and it is possible with building on what they did last season.
  12. Not in anyway trying call Roby, more the comment I replied to, I have always rated and admired him but the statement was ridiculous. There have been some oustanding hookers in SL for a few years and Roby at his peak was the best but he is not at his peak but is still good.
  13. Clark has been outstanding for years and didn't lose any credit on tour so although Roby is an outstanding player a one legged Roby would be useless.
  14. Don't agree over Philbin but would over Hill and Hughes.
  15. I do like him and rate him,but if he was an Aussie in that game he would not receive as much attention, but the conditions were terrible and lots of players struggled but his handling was solid.
  16. Watched the raiders game and Bateman did ok but was not mom, I thought hodson was good.
  17. Well I am very happy with the Halliwell Jones stadium and the Langtree Park is a fine one both create good atmospheres and don't leave away fans with no cover and Warrington are continually improving the stadium, filled two corners big screen inside and outside of the stadium. But ultimately when I go to headingley I see impressive new stands but I still stood on an open old terrace.
  18. looking at the press releases over the relegation of 5 teams in the championship leaving 9 teams joining the 2 relegated SL teams, leaving 11 teams, does this leave the 12 spot for tolouse ?
  19. I remember when he was in charge in 2010 ccf and the Wire fans and others all said he was a Leeds fan, for years Ganson was thought to be against wire, all rubbish they ref the games and teams adapt to their styles or interpretations, and they get penalised fewer times if they are smart. I don't care who refs it, the players will be in charge of their destiny.
