  1. Will the Rams North Stand season ticket holders be guaranteed a seat at Headingley ??? (for the Dewsbury game, at least) Hope it's more enjoyable than the last time we played Bradford at Headingley..........
  2. https://twitter.com/TheRFL has a live show at 2:55pm "special fixtures announcement show"
  3. In the website article, he's described as a Utility Back capable of playing all positions.......... Useful cover if that's the case We can't be far off 'there' now in terms of our 2020 squad ............ In a lot better position than we were this time last year with what seems like a complete squad, together at the start of pre-season training ..... Been a Dewsbury fan for far too long to build up any hopes, but there is cause for cautious optimism
  4. According to https://twitter.com/TheRFL there's a live show at 2:55pm today where Betfred are "hosting a special fixtures announcement show this afternoon to help get you in the mood for the new season" Hope that helps .......
  5. Yeah............... But you've got Brett Ferres.......... No potential problems with team spirit there then.......
  6. LG also said he was looking to cut down on stupid penalties and ill discipline.......... On that basis, I would say Isaac Farrell wouldn't be in the reckoning............... On ability & potential, maybe .....
  7. Not ideal, but both Knowles & Speakman have operated in the halves before.....and we know that DAY has an 80 minute game in him. Ideally now, I would suggest, we need a couple of adaptable, pacey backs who can supplement / cover most positions..... and there is always the DR with HKR to fall back on........ (hopefully).... Who they might be is another question altogether Have the 2020 announcements now finished on a Tuesday & Friday ???
  8. Have I missed something ??? .......... What about James Thornton ??? On the subject of SYKES.........the piece about Sam Moorhouse on the Club's website indicates that Sykes will be involved next season....
  9. Jack Howieson..... Ex-Sheffield with some coaching experience at Hemel...... So that's a combination of ex-back and ex-forward as our coaching team.... Welcome on board Jack -- hope you can bring that 'something extra' to the party !!! Improved discipline & cutting out silly penalties will do for a start Any thoughts anybody ???
  10. The ONLY reason I would like to see TW promoted is because I hate home games against them........No atmosphere, small crowd and the bl**dy stupid playing of National Anthems.............. But that's not enough to stop me wishing you guys all the best over there tomorrow..... I'd "love it, just love it" if you could turn 'em over and take another West Yorkshire club in to Super League....... Go FEV !!!
  11. You can be sure of one thing with Morton......... You'll not get less than 100% ...... IMO, he's been a good servant to the Rams and I hope he goes on to be a success with you guys........... except against us, of course. Good luck Dale
  12. I think it's hard to gauge our realistic chances until we know what squad we've actually got...... The signings of Annakin & Speakman are very positive (IMO) and i'm hoping the "quality before quantity" ethos brings further promising signings...... Whilst I understand the marketing approach of 2020 on Tuesdays & Fridays, I don't really see how it helps in such things as Season Ticket sales..... And can't we at least be told who has definitely left....... Walshaw & Ward seem to have gone, and strong rumours of Morton moving on but nothing concrete that I can see FWIW .........I reckon we'll finish above the Dogs next season.......and not just one place !!!
  13. No discussion on here about the departures of LG's 'assistants'......... Is this a cost-cutting measure or have we got new faces coming on board ?? Anyone in the know ??
  14. Reading LG's comments, there's no mention of Ward for next season..........Just Speakman & Day ..... Think it's a cracking signing, along with Annakin......... If the other newcomers are of a similar stature, we might well have cause for a bit of optimism in 2020.
  15. Following the Fans Forum last night, I've just signed up to the OurLeague thingy......... BUT, at no stage did it ask which club I support. This obviously isn't going to help the club's efforts -- Can anyone enlighten please ?? ........ I tried doing it on my Chromebook, rather than phone......... As a Technophobe, could that be the issue ?? Thought the Forum was very informative, if somewhat frustrating regarding new / departing players but I respect why the Club is taking the approach it is. The signing of Annakin is excellent news..... let's hope other new signings are of a similar stature............ Was amazed to learn that a number of players were looking for more money after such a disappointing season.......... Is it them or their agents trying it on ?? Well done again to the club for telling them it's a non-starter. IF they are as good as they think, then why aren't other clubs already beating their door down ?? Quality rather than quantity is, I believe, the right approach for next season.....and, without actually saying it, I think LG learned an awful lot in his first full season at Championship level..... Let's hope he can break down the bad habits we've got in to as a team and bring in the players who can / will turn that mentality around...... and engender the 'family' feeling he spoke of. The club is obviously well managed and heavily supported by Mark Sawyer (and others) and whilst we all crave better results on the pitch, the over-riding focus has to be on keeping the club alive, viable and in a healthy financial position........... But what a struggle it obviously is !!!! ....... And, whatever our reservations regarding the Bulls as tenants, it's clear we should welcome them with open arms.
