  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. 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 ....

  3. 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!

    Our chairman doesn’t sack a coach. Such a move would cost money and he doesn’t like to spend any I understand, therefore the present incumbent will remain in situ, unless he feels he should depart. 

    When does his contract end? ... My guess is Mark will not want to pay his contract up .. but certainly won't be renewing it!!

  5. 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!!

    I do miss games under the lights at Barley Mow😢😢

    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!!

  7. 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!!!

    Well chisholm's 2 week loan is up at London... We need to get in quick🤔

    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!

  10. 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.

    Talking to Keith Mason at the Giants game and he says theirs nearly 90 ex players coming. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get a few supporters back that haven’t been for a while,and better still  we put a good performance in to impress them so they come back.

    90!!! Wow!! .. what's the capacity of the Royal suite??  .... it can get quite full after a game!!  .. this could be packed and some!!

    Marquis,Dennis Bailey,Eddie Rombo,what a trio ,Lee needs to speak those three about how to score a few tries.

    I am sure Mark Sawyer mentioned this, in his presentation, after the game on Sunday!
