  1. Unlucky Town, the 14 were excellent. Can't see thunder getting promotion, they are class in phases but can't see them beating Oldham. Hopefully in 12 months time we either already promoted, or at least have 17 fit men, UTT
  2. Good luck today town... On the topic of having less than 17...i think we need to sack DR off, it does us no favours in the long run, does not allow for forward planning and denies a lad a place also we have to look at a reserve/academy, thunder have 1, and alot of lads from it are now in 1st team squad! They are also taking the top young players from West cumbria.... Don't blame either the lads or thunder, I know it costs money but have to see it as a long term investment, hopefully CT will try Implement, we could have filled a bench today with academy/reserves
  3. I wonder if the Barrow relegation/haven promotion will have a bearing on recruitment? I would like to see us attract and keep some top amateurs, WBH, Kells and Egremont are all playing at the highest levels - all must have some excellent players, suppose its the usual argument of whether they want to step up and make the commitment - however every other week they are travelling away to Lancs/Yorks and by all accounts all 3 clubs are ran like pro clubs.
  4. Oldham were smarter, we needed to play simple, grind them down, and not force it. Thought Mellor and Singleton were our best, moi moi done OK n all, at the end he seemed to land a few punches but the Oldham lad did start it, no DR available or thorman not keen?

    Having a small squad is causing problems, short term fix is a couple of loans or why not sign some amateurs who if not selected can play for there own club? Make it clear to them before signing them, it's almost a season long trial, if good enough the amateur gets a contrat, if not... Thanks.... Could have 3/4 'reserves' if done right who still get regular rugby
  6. I think some are picking out a lot of negatives.... We would have took any win at all before KO, yes we were poor at times but the spirit and the fight to get back in it from 0-18 was immense, thought Hopkins and FFMM changed the game, Doran was great 2nd half! Newcastle will be up there, they have some quality...and at times they couldn't handle us in attack once we got momentum... Won't be many better than young n Aston in this league either...I do feel we need a Hooker and another back, injuries and we will struggle... Great win tho ?
  7. He could come and play hooker, imagine him and penky!
  8. Only concern with pre season is we could do with another game b4 oldham, any game time is good (including hudds)
  9. Personally I hope the stadium gets built, I do agree the costs are high but this includes 2 sports facilities, landscaping and riverside regeneration - so the stadium itself is not costing 15million, think people forget its not just a 'stadium' project. The concern for Allerdale will be how to justify the cost, and the plans suggest community area, office space and bar/function facilities as well as the training pitch - all can generate income, but will it be enough? In terms of sport, yes crowds are low but the new stadium brings both teams into the future, wonder how many fans (home and away) are deterred by BP or DP due to it being a substandard venue? Reducing running costs will allow both clubs to invest in the teams - improving standards and hopefully results - attracting more fans. The stadium will complete what seems like a 2 part process to make cloffocks area a sport village - we need more sport facilities and I think the stadium with the 2nd 'training pitch' will become a valuable community asset.
  10. Don't quote me on this but as well as the 2 sports facilities (new stadium and training pitch) the whole riverbank area will be regenerated. https://www.allerdale.gov.uk/en/stadium/ is the latest link showing development of the riverside.
  11. 1. Town 2. Thunder 3. Donny 4. Haven 5. Hunslet 6. Oldham 7. NW 8. Skolars 9. Cov 10. Keighley 11. WWR Bottom 3 could be any order, depends on keighley squad, WWR recruitment, i do hope cov improve tho
  12. Clubs seem more commited to running women's teams than reserves it seems.... I agree with this but without the reserves we lose 100s of players in what is a diminishing talent pool, most top SL players came thru reserves, even if its an u23 league....as for using DR/loans to get experience for youth, it works but suggesting this be the only way to develop players passes the buck! Even if teams work together for reserves.... Like city of hull, it reduces costs, but if costs are not the issue in SL, yes with Champ/L1....ringfence funding for reserves/incentivise i.e extra cash from RFL to help
  13. Great new feature, especially for those who wont have seen the hall of famers play!
  14. I jus wish they would stop f****g about with rules and golden point etc, or at least make it the same rule for all leagues....!
  15. Im biased but really like the town shirt, best for years ??
