  1. Can't believe he is still playing. Always had more talant than his brother Andy but in his younger years did not have the attitude that was required for him to get a chance at Wigan.
  2. I can't really think of any massive ref mistakes that have gone in our favour and can't really remember many the other way. One does stick out in my memory was a certain tackle by Dean Sampson that was deemed to be a legitimate tackle...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxkVJ07ftqw
  3. Comparing Evans and Luke Briscoe? Seriously, Championship fans which one do you want in your team?
  4. Yet Hardman not a patch on QLT......and Higham picked for the nostalgia reason?
  5. Imagine if you both had merged in that time......
  6. Im sure I saw another team named elsewhere on social media or did I imagine that? You can argue about so many different players over a span of 10 years, I mean how hard is it to pick a team over just 2 or 3 years. Like Worthington and Yere over Tyrer?
  7. Hull KR all the way. I said with their signings they have put together a good squad ready for 2021 in the Championship.
  8. He were a very talented player its just a shame he threw away his career with over hyping himself, bad choices, and the rest. On a side note someone desparate to get back in to the game he loved would surely have been training the house down ready for his return to the game. By all accounts he came back in terible shape which is going to ask a lot of questions.
  9. I don't think Walker is anything other than a run of the mill fullback. Lui looked good playing alongside Hastings and again I wouldn't say he is near the top 5 or 6 standoff in SL. Gale is quality but I would be surprised if he hits the form he showed at Cas for a while. Dwyer always stood out in the championship and although I rate hit again I wouldnt be taking him if I had to pick 5 or 6 other hookers out of SL. As I said I think they look pretty average, as a whole hey are going to be way better than Huddersfield and Hull KRs choices but nowhere near the top teams.
  10. Don't get me wrong I can see why she is getting the plaudits, as is often the case it only tells part of the story though. As Ive said she is a very smart business woman.
  11. In my opinion Leeds spine looks pretty average.
  12. Im going to try and bite my tongue on this one. All I will say is that Danny's immediate family are all involved with another charity that do the same work, a charity that Lizzie was also a part of before deciding for whatever reason to go it alone. They keep doing the brilliant work that they do away from the bright lights while Lizzie uses their ideas to keep her place in the spotlight. For right or wrong she is clearly a very smart business woman.
  13. Yeah Penky over Beswick every time. I remember Beswick getting pushed to 13 when we signed Gleeson. As said though its slightly skewed in that theres a lot of better players missing out because they only played a year or two, I could make a good argument for Ben Black and Royston been in there. No real surprise that its dominated by Fev, Fax and Sheffield players.
  14. Unfortunatley it seems he was in neither shape. TBF to Bradford it could be a good signing for them if they can manage to get him anything like as they will be scraping the barrel when it comes to players and we all know that Sam has the potential to be a very good player.
  15. Only Sam could spend 4 years out of the game and turn up for a club massively out of shape. You would have thought he would have been itching to get back.
  16. Fev and York still look quite a bit better than Leigh in my opinion but as I have said before I expect Leigh to make sure they are comfortable in the top 5 before Beaumont signs a load of players for the play offs. I really don't think Leigh are all that fussed about going for top spot.
  17. For Halifax I believe it were down to money with Huddersfield wanting us to contribute over 20k to his wages which was never going to happen. I do believe he will have to find a new club though because of quota issues.
  18. He stopped talking to other Championship clubs about a month ago. Its been a done deal for quite some time now.
  19. The best thing that could happen is a full indepedant enquiry in to the full saga. I would expect a majority vote in favour of that at the Championship meeting this week. The ones with their fingers in the pie will obviously be against it and we will see the Championship clubs really count for very little in the eyes of the RFL.
  20. I'd be surprised if Wigan don't make the grand final. Cas I think will fade this season and the same goes for Salford. Leeds have made some shrewd signings and there shouldnt be any danger of relegation tis season but also no real danger of winning anything but could give them a platform to build. Huddersfield and Hull KR will fight it out for the drop.
  21. It makes a change for there to actually be a debate about there been any value in the odds when there hasnt been the last few seasons. Way I see it is Fev offer the best value in those prices. Id expect better odds on Leigh to make it tempting as I expect them to make the top 5 but think they will add better signings later in the season as Degsy gets a sniff of SL but don't think they will come close to topping the league.
  22. The only thing that he has shown to me in his time at Fax is that people can still be fooled in to thinking because someone is a unit they must be a really good player. The rumour of Salford been interested was quite amusing to any Fax fan with one or two asking how much we had to pay them to take him off our hands.
  23. For Fax our biggest signing could be Sam Barlow if he has his head on.
  24. Yeah seems much of wasted career believing his own hype. Often you see players have size and little talent or talent but not the size. Id put Dan Fleming in the having size bracket and Manning in the having the talent bracket but Sam certainly has both. He should have played SL for many years in my opinion.
  25. To be fair if he does sign and gets anywhere back to how he can play we get one of the best forwards in the championship. His age probably isnt much of a factor either as he hasnt been knocked about for the past 4 years. Not a massive Sam fan myself but hes a very good rugby player hopefully with all the other stuff he has grown up a bit.
