  1. Didn't get to see too much rugby ... the real challenge was drinking San Miguel out of paper cups... who ever thought that would work!!! .... Anyway will Dale Ferguson ever play for us again??
  2. Why hasn't Leon Pryce been mentioned?
  3. Hmmm and who do we think the next coach will be???
  4. I disagree .. in my opinion all the last 3 coaches had their qualities and all had at least one decent (ish) season ... the problem we have is that with the lack of finance available to strengthen the squad we are left with the motivational ability of the coach ... as their tenure progresses they lose their drive and the motivational tactics they initially used with success no longer work... then its just a cycle of failure ....
  5. Actually Ben Thaler is a very sociable chap!! .... whatever the result on Sunday I think he will be in the bar after the game!! .. How many refs do that?? Back on topic though .. I await the squad announcement with interest!
  6. When does his contract end? ... My guess is Mark will not want to pay his contract up .. but certainly won't be renewing it!!
  7. I thought the team were excellent today McGowan and Kibula were clearly our best players... McGowans trys were superb and that pass from Kibula!!!! ... wow!! .. I don't think Kibula likes being at Bradford but whether they will let him stay with us for the rest of the season may depend on Mark Sawyers influence at the Bulls!! .. What did concern me was the after match presentations ... For the first time this season the team were really together in the Royal suite ... bantering and enjoying the experience as a team!! .....which was great to see..... But!!! completely ignoring the coaches presentation to the point of talking loudly over him!! .... So lets not paper over the cracks!!
  8. Did barley mow have lights??? ... I don't think they had changing rooms!! seem to remember the players got changed in the pub!! ...I think they redeveloped it and then called it Mclaren field!!
  9. We haven't done well with our signings this year ... i wonder if they all had thorough medicals??
  10. Its time for something!!! .... We are a shambles!! .... no organisation or direction either on or off the field!! ... feels like a painful journey from obscurity to oblivion!!.... Does anyone care!! ........ YES ME!!!
  11. Completely agree .. this is not a game for experimentation!! ... I say get Milnes from HKR for the London game ... a little bit pf creativity will swing this game in our favour! Start the experimentation with Sweeting the week after!
  12. Not seen Matty Wildie for some time ... looks like a Liam Finn clone ... played really well today great movement from acting half and excellent backing up for his try!!
  13. or it could be Colin Blunstone .... I don't believe in miracles!!
  14. Good championship experience!! .... along with Annakin and Knowles will help the team!
  15. To those of us who currently contribute to the Rams Squadbuilder... I responded to a general request from Mark to get involved in forming a committee to organise and breathe some new life and momentum into the squadbuilder initiative... If anyone on this forum who currently contributes to squadbuilder would like to consider joining me in refreshing squadbulder ... removing some of the perceived mistrust... building integrity and transparency... whilst growing the fund in order that we might contribute to future player deals ... please PM me.... This is a great opportunity for us to maximise the potential of what is a good source of income ... where every penny goes directly to player recruitment.
  16. And probably London!! ...
  17. No leadership and poor decisions on final play!!
  18. So 4 trips to Cumbria!!!
  19. 90!!! Wow!! .. what's the capacity of the Royal suite?? .... it can get quite full after a game!! .. this could be packed and some!!
  20. Hoping for???????? ..... Knowles!!!... Day!!! ......Sykes ( Full back/ coach) ....and who else??
  21. I am sure Mark Sawyer mentioned this, in his presentation, after the game on Sunday!
  22. Tyler Dupree .. is their class act!! ... unfortunately he is going to Widnes!! ... he would have been the ideal Tom G .. replacement!!
