  1. Giants to continue their unbeaten form blistering form!! Need the win to all but secure safety.
  2. So, who does everyone will get relegated again?? I seemed to have forgotten who said who after reading all the 12 pages of posts!!
  3. Just seen that on beeb website and was already to put the shortcut here. As you say, dealt with professionally by Hicks & also Wire.
  4. It is an official club statement with a big error in it. Whether it was written straight after the event or not, the error should have been picked up.
  5. i'd be more concerned that the "official statement" wasn't checked for spelling & grammar. here / hear.
  6. Been appointed KR's U16 coach.
  7. Giants surely can't be bad for 2 matches in a row?!?! Need to repeat the performance from the AJ Stadium from 4/5 weeks ago if we are to get anything out of it. Giants by 4pts (hopefully & everything crossed).
  8. Good write up on Ed, via this link to the Oldham website. https://roughyeds.co.uk/2019/07/oldham-swoop-for-ex-york-captain/
  9. A match neither team will want to lose (again). Giants win and another massive step to securing safety, but a defeat will once again tighten up the bottom 4/5 places. Hope that the rain stays away for the match. Got to stay loyal and say home win. Most prob by 8pts but would love it to be a landslide to help the nerves and pts difference!!
  10. Unfortunately Uate has never been fully fit. Played all the matches with a niggling ankle (i think) injury. This is turn has affected his confidence.
  11. Remaining fixture are; London - Salford (h), Cas (a), Cat (a), Rhinos (h), KR (a), Wakey (a) KR - Cas (h), Wigan (a), Wakey (h), Cat (a), London (h), Salford (a) Rhinos - Giants (a), Cat (h), Saints (h), London (a), Salford (h), Wire (h) Wakey - Saints (a), FC (h), KR (a), Wigan (h), Wire (a), London (h) Giants - Rhinos (h), Salford (a), Cas (h), FC (a), Saints (a), Cat (h) Can't see any team winning more than 2 matches (if that) to be fair.
  12. To me, his concerns are correct. The solution?? Who knows. Is there a right one?? For every sponsor and their trade, there will be people who are happy and people who aren't. It is up to EVERYONE, not just the RFL, SLE, clubs etc to increase the profile of the sport. The only bad news / correspondence about RL is no news / correspondence.
  13. How fast is the coach going to be travelling at, if it is going to get from York to Barrow in 2hrs??
  14. Going to be tough match for both teams, not necessarily on the physical side but more the mental side. Neither one will want to lose this one. Any sort of win for the Giants will do for me.
  15. One change to the Giants squad with O'Brien dropping out (unsurprisingly). Hopefully we can continue where we left off last week against Salford, and take another step closer to safety. Giants by 8, will do for me.
  16. We never have any luck against Salford espically in the last couple of seasons, and i don't expect that to change in this fixture. With us being so poor recently can only see a home win, but if we can manage a win then hopefully it can kick start the remainder of our season (Catalan, KR & Rhinos to follow in the next month).
  17. I kind of forgot that this topic was about Leeds being by The Daddy after reading last several pages of posts. Had to go back to page to remember why he thought that!!
  18. They would only get the points back and relegation revoked upon appeal, as it would be classed as a minor infringement and a administrative error just like the salary cap issue!!
  19. Did you not know, they are one of the rumoured new teams in the 14 team SL competition for 2020!!
  20. York have benefited too from a couple of players from Coventry in recent years. Unfortunately it is just evolution and unless as pointed out in deluded pom's post unless serious investment comes in then it will continue to happen. The plus side of this though is that young aspiring RL players in the midlands can see that there is a pathway to bigger teams and clubs if they are good enough, which can only benefit the game as a whole.
  21. Giants with the same squad ad they had for MW which must be the first time this season they have had the same fit 19 to choose from. Should be a good close match. Will settle for an away win by anything.
  22. Been one of the best forwards for the Giants this season. Sorry to see him go. But as one door closes another opens. Still lots of options for the Giants in my opinion.
  23. This was on twitter etc on Sunday. The halfback signing will be interesting.
