  1. Its not going well ... we are getting well beaten!! Come on get voting!!
  2. Quarter final today ..... we are up against G.B .... going to be tough!! Starts around mid day!
  3. Agreed Tansey was dreadful ... Hallett played well when Gaz Moore was firing on all cylinders .... but did nowt when Gaz Moore wasn't around ... and lets face it he wasn't around most of his contract!
  4. I think you can ... try clicking on the link .. where it says vote on twitter. I am not signed into twitter but it took me to the site. Worth a try ... I think we will need about 600 votes to win.
  5. It looks like twitter are releasing the matches one at a time .... just Fulham v The Bulls on at the moment ... we are 6th up!!
  6. Cas v Fev ... might be interesting!!
  7. NEWS | TICKETS | FIXTURES | OURLEAGUE As we continue to celebrate the 125th anniversary of our great sport, we asked you to help us find the most iconic Rugby League kit of all-time. The rules were simple – it could be any kit from your club or country and in any season. Your votes have since been counted and 16 kits have successfully qualified for the finals… So it’s time for the #RFL125 World Cup of Kits and you can vote your favourite through the last 16, quarter finals and semi-finals, before we reach the final and crown our winner. With some cracking contenders like the GB Lions kit from 1988 and Bradford’s from their 2003 double -winning season, it’s sure to be a closely run contest. VOTE ON TWITTER
  8. Well we made the last 16 .... but have been drawn agains Leeds!! I guess they have more fans so will probably beat us!! Lets all get together and do a 1973!!!
  9. Even before then ..... the main maternity hospital was Moorlands at DGH until it closed
  10. Did Colin North ever play for Dewsbury? ... I seem to think he was at Keighley for ever! I am pretty sure he's Dewsbury born
  11. Really hard to look past Bob Haigh Les Holliday Joe Whittington But contenders and honourable mentions to David Blakeley.. John Clarke had a couple of good seasons at 13 .. Bernard Watson ... and in a completely different style Aaron Brown gave us some entertainment!
  12. This one is really difficult because the hookers role has changed so much ..... for me the best hooker ( ball winner by a mile ) was Peter Mullins .... then of course Mick Stephenson was the cross over .. not the best ball winner ..but great in the loose .. would still have been a great in todays game! Struggling with my 3rd choice!! .... but for try scoring and craft Sam Day must be worth a mention!! ..... I always thought Finny played more like a hooker than a half back!! ...Ray Price was pretty good as was Roy Firth as was Ned .. Godwin was past his best when we had him ...... anyway need to think about No 3 so.. 1. Mick Stephenson 2. Peter Mullins 3. ???? ... watch this space!
  13. Thanks for that ....So 1 Harry Beverley ...... by a distance! 2 Trevor ( Dick ) Lowe 3 Jim Naylor.. Special mention to Tom Garrett ..... I do hope he comes back .. could be a legend in the making! ... and Walker and Taylor were a good pairing!
  14. Yes he was from Hudds .. and Yes we loaned Fifita ....... he didn't turn up metaphorically ..... he was absolutely useless and we got stuffed by Rochdale .... Keegan Hirst was on loan that day as well .... neither will get my vote! Personally I can't see past Beverley and Lowe ... plus one ...maybe Anthony England maybe Tom Garrett.... I'll have to think about my 3rd
  15. If your looking at loan players .... that Shannon Wakeman was pretty good too!
  16. Good idea WR ... but its going to be front loaded there are more younger posters ..... perhaps the over 60s votes should count double!! .... Only Joking but very few saw Bob Hirst and Geoff Marsh !!
  17. Garth Budge slipped through the net then! ....
  18. I remember Gwynn Davies Alan Edwards Garth Budge .... was there a Trevor Ward around then or is my memory playing tricks ... The name Hayman rings a bell though ...was he an import?? .... but I can't visualise him !
  19. Alwyn Newall led us to two semi finals .... in the 60s. He was our captain and we were a moderately decent team ... again as with '73' he was the incumbent when I stared watching Dews ... and I might have been a star struck child but I remember him darting through defences throwing good passes and dropping a fair few goals when they meant something!! I think it was Edwards and Newall ... then Budge and Newall.
  20. Yes I knew he hadn't been well ... he had been living in care suffering with dementia. I see Mick Gledhill has reported it on his twitter and facebook pages ... but haven't seen it officially reported.
  21. Garth Budge was very under rated ... came from Bradford I think .. very clever and elusive runner ... yep he should be considered! .... I don't know how he is .. but know he has not been very well in recent years!
