  1. 5248 isn't bad, given the apparent lack of much promotion of the game. Problem is they got thrashed by a team who most people expect to be in the bottom half of the table. Hard to attract a new audience when you lose every week.
  2. Cracking game. Not often you'll see one won as much against the run of play as that.
  3. It was well late, and from behind too. He easily had time to not do it. Widdop was again hit from behind and off the ball in Warrington's second try too. Leeds were fantastic, pretty unlucky to be only two points ahead.
  4. Yes, clear mistake by Briscoe - mis-read the attack, went for the wrong player, then missed the tackle when he tried to recover. Good attacking play to put him in that position though.
  5. Exactly. Can't argue it's just a mistimed tackle when you've going in a with a clenched fist.
  6. I assume people from West Yorkshire can understand him, but for the rest of us, it's on a par with Rab C Nesbitt at times. It's a shame because he's obviously interesting and funny and really could be a great RL media figure. Is there still such a thing as elocution lessons ?
  7. Yorkshire Evening Post says Castleford-Salford was a sell-out, 10 500 capacity attendance. https://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/reds-stun-tigers-to-ruin-radfords-debut-3565357
  8. Huddersfield missing 3 players due to non-vaccination - Ricky Leutele, Jermaine McGillvary and Michael Lawrence.
  9. Toulouse president says he's hoping for a 6000 average attendance this season, with 14-15 000 for the game with Catalans. They've sold approaching 700 season tickets, but he expects that number to keep going up.
  10. You can't say anything negative about Doom Bar, Eddie. They're sponsoring Cornwall RLFC
  11. 17160 across the 7 championship clubs, slightly higher than the opening week. Not bad to average not far off 2500 after each club has had one home game, only Newcastle below the 1000 mark.
  12. The 1907-08 Hunslet team was famously the first to win all 4 cups, I e more than a treble. Hunslet, along with Batley and Workington Town are the only clubs that have to look back even further than Warrington for the last time they were league champions.
  13. Still causing some confusion this. Widnes & Workington both have it as 70-18 on their websites and match reports, but quite a lot of media outlets have it as 68-18.
  14. The weather yesterday would have reduced the attendance figures right across the championship. Eribe Doro looked a bit lost at times last year, possibly difficult to fit in when you're on loan. Lovely offload out of the tackle from him for tries in both of the games so far, but as Spidey says, concedes too many penalties. Tyler Dupree has been excellent in both games. Turns out that playing the game with some prop forwards on the pitch is a good idea, who knew? Lawton is always going to struggle with avoiding penalties for high tackles. Matty Smith has been our best player in both games so far. London came back into the game only after he went off last week. Still think we'll be mid-table, not convinced we'll compete so well with the five drives down the middle and a good kick approach of eg Dewsbury.
