  1. Ooh you love a bit of banter don't you. You come on here constantly trying to wind people up. So when does banter become something more serious ? I'm still at a loss to understand what exactly happened at the Fax game. Did someone say something out of order to someone before the game ? during the game ?. Someone ran on the pitch ? All I can say is that I was in the stand in question and all I heard was 'banter' The Fax fans were getting 'who ate all the pies' type abuse thrown at them but nothing more. Nothing racist / homophobic etc. There was nothing overly malicious and no aggression involved. We've all got stories about being verbally and physically attacked in the past and that was very much a different time - but if todays snowflakes can't handle a bit of banter we're all ####ed. For what its worth the most offensive thing I saw or heard at the Fax game was the cheerleaders getting abuse but thats fine - it wasn't us.....
  2. Why on earth did Bulls2487 'like' this post given that he cant possibly know if it is true. Clearly sad ar#e fans of other teams love to come on here to gloat but ffs thats just ridiculous.
  3. What do you mean it never rains ? It p*sses down on us constantly. To even things up next season we need to start making some bogus complaints against some of our rivals. I wonder if complaints from our nice friends at Fax and Oldham would have been quite so vociferous had we not stuffed them in those games. Many people on this forum think we are all treated equally by the RFL
  4. I've no idea what happened. Doesn't really matter though does it. Just to put things into perspective - thinking about the worst thing I've ever seen on a rugby pitch - a few years back Ben Flower received what was effectively a 10 match ban for punching someone in the face whilst they lay unconscious on the ground. Many people on here think that the RFL treat us all equally. At least that gives me something to laugh about.
  5. Don't hold your breath. I suspect that Leigh will bring in the big guns for the play offs.
  6. 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.
  7. I need to find out how to pronounce his name...
  8. Didn't he play for us on DR a couple of years back ?
  9. Public transport is easy enough (although I'm in Wakey)
  10. Luke B played at centre quite a bit last year.......
  11. 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)
  12. 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.
  13. We'll be playing Leigh. Could be important again this year. (I cant see us being so far clear in 2nd spot again)
  14. Oh we'll be playing Leigh don't worry about that.....
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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 ?
  18. Top 5 ? Top 3 ? Why would we be settling for this after 2 back to back grand finals ?
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
