  1. Don't hold your breath. I suspect that Leigh will bring in the big guns for the play offs.
  2. Loverugbyleague put together their version of how we might line up in 2022. Pickers at FB. Hardcastle, Jones and Davies dont make the 17........Clowns.
  3. I need to find out how to pronounce his name...
  4. Didn't he play for us on DR a couple of years back ?
  5. Public transport is easy enough (although I'm in Wakey)
  6. Luke B played at centre quite a bit last year.......
  7. I think its difficult to tell yet. I'm assuming there are some more signings to come - which could determine whether or not we're favourites next year. JSL seems to be still on the cards ?_ C#s forum suggested that Eden was a done deal but thats gone quiet and with Gale and Briscoe I'd be happy to keep Blackmore and / or Doyle. After that I reckon we need a quality half back and prop. Not asking for much ! but previous seasons would indicate that at this stage we have a couple of signings up our sleeve. As things stand, to improve on what we had last year, I reckon we effectively need a replacement for Brown (depending on how you see Wildie slotting in) and Harrison (who didnt play that much last year). Oh and some DR kids to fill in for the kids that we've let go. (You know the ones that our rivals will inevitability see as being pivotal in any success we may have)
  8. I dont think he's as appreciated as he should be (in both spells with us imo). At this level he can make things happen and those players are hard to find. It might be a flattering comparison but if we're talking about someone who has good hands, good feet, gets in the opposition face and has the rare ability to play at half back or in the forwards there is a similarity to the legendary Sir Brendon Tuuta (He does have the baby face as well) Great news. Could do with a full season. Good luck Jack.
  9. We'll be playing Leigh. Could be important again this year. (I cant see us being so far clear in 2nd spot again)
  10. Oh we'll be playing Leigh don't worry about that.....
  11. Maybe but I can honestly say that I have no idea what this story is about. We have a few ****head 'supporters' but I really must have missed something here. On a positive note its nice to have a fine under £10K
  12. We have a good record with overseas coaches at this level. Maybe their contacts have helped to bring in quality players such as Collins, Fallins, Baker (going back a while with those 3), King, Jones, Parata, Chisholm, Brown etc. So an Aussie half back - I'd take any day of the week. However if it is to be Brian Mc..... If he gets us to where we want to be then who cares ? I get that he has said things in the past that have made him unpopular. (Maybe he needs to sign an add on to his contract ....'sign here..once a capper always a capper'- just to appease the fans) He will bring with him some serious experience, and I dont care what style of rugby we play as long as we win. Lets not forget that we played some breathtaking rugby this season but in the only two games that counted - we were sh#te
  13. Hopefully we can keep Bus, Chiz and Nu. Then if the rumours about Briscoe, Lefao and Wildie are true I dont think we need too much more in terms of major signings. Possibly short on props depending on Locky / maybe Gadwin returning ?
  14. Top 5 ? Top 3 ? Why would we be settling for this after 2 back to back grand finals ?
  15. So he's been a fan of what they've been doing for a while ?? What exactly ? They way they rolled over at our place, and their place, or the fact that they've finally accepted the inevitable and gone part time ?? Big fan of his but good luck on the sinking ship.
  16. Yeah Leigh fans in particular still bang on about it - you know the usual thing that our whole team was entirely made up of Leeds reserves in 2019 (which we did well to get away with given that we were only allowed 4 out of the 17). They also used this as a reason why they deserved to take up Torontos place last year. Again a bit rich given that they brought in the big guns for the 2019 play offs (Kevin Brown etc) but still failed miserably
  17. Yeah done that one before. Depends which way you look at it. Seems acceptable to have a relaxing weekend with the missus in the lakes with a game thrown in - whereas Toulouse just seems a lot of hassle and expense just to get to the game and come home. Never tried it mind.
  18. 1. Ferres (that says it all) 2. Davies 3. Bussey
  19. Toulouse 1st try was fine. 2nd he lost control. Not even debatable. Ferres in the corner fine. Anyone who expected anything other than these ###### decisions hasnt been watching us long enough. (ffs even Phil Clarke 'disallowed' 2 of them). Yes we bottled it in the first halt, we were rubbish, and overall you cant argue about the result but im just thankful that those decisions didnt (statistically speaking at least) affect the result. The sooner we accept this as being the closest we get to SL the better. Its not the despair its the hope i cant handle.........
  20. Can just see him as Toulouse Lautrec - on the touchline ready to come on.. With a ball shaped beumb thrown to him by the RFL. Seriously I wouldn't put it past them (He says sarcastically to all the gullible smug anti-conspiracists)
  21. I need to improve my googling skills. Was looking into the possibilty of travelling over but didn't see anything between Friday and Sunday that was do-able.
