  1. Just seen the squad for Sunday ..... Anyone know who Harry Copley is?
  2. Michael Knowles has been and still is one of the unsung heroes of our game... 100% effort on and off the field!! He deserves all our support to make his testimonial a success!
  3. The Sheffield web page states that tickets are not available on the day .... that they can only be bought on line! Does anyone know if this is correct... or is the web page a bit behind?
  4. It felt like the Gallowgate!! .. love the geordie passion!!.... Guessing about 30 of them but they made a lot of noise!!
  5. This is just how I feel!! Raw emotion .. I will probably delete this post in the morning!! ... I have no inside information .. I don't really know what's going on!! I just see what I saw!! .. I speculate!! .. Something is very wrong!! .. Has there been a fall out? ... the difference between the togetherness at the Widnes game ... the full on effort at Fev last week even in defeat!! .. and the abject capitulation today ... something has happened ... What??? .... I have no idea!! .. but as I said .. I speculate... it looks like some of the senior players and the coach might be on different pages ... what other possible explanation can there be for what, for me, was the worst performance of the season ... In my opinion the team were not a team today!! .. the other possibility might be whilst other teams are announcing contracts for next season .. we are not!! ... Is it ambition ..is it apathy.. is it leadership and motivation... or is it a lack of vision and direction??? I will be there next week and the week after .. but many others will not! ... I really, really care!!! ... I have supported this team since 1964 through good and bad .. all I expect is 100% effort .. I did not see that today!!
  6. Yes we lost heavy today .... but scored the best try!! I thought Gabes was quick ... but that was really impressive!!
  7. Disappointing... but unfortunately predictable!! Sykes and Finn have been great servants to the game and our club...and still have something to give to the team ...... but not together!!!... I would still keep Sykes and pair him with a nippy 7 ..... or if Sykes wasn't fit I'd play Finn with a nippy 6 .... but not on the same team at the same time!! .. they just don't complement each others styles .. in fact they contradict each other!! Surely I cant be the only one thinking this!! .... but I am not the coach!!!!
  8. Squad posted on RFL website .... includes Sonny Esselmont, Keenan Tomlinson .... and Paul Sykes!! ... hopefully all fit!!
  9. Stansted £4.99 return!!! .... worth a punt!!
  10. I only asked ... with Hall Chisholm and Brown ... who kicks?? ... not pointless to me interested in opinions!!
  11. I note Gilmore, Morton and Hooley in squad for this one .... who kicks?
  12. I thought Smith was excellent today .... but for me Tom Garrett .. is our man of the season so far!! .. His stamina is amazing .. he did 75 mins today and never took a backward step!! .... I also think we missed a trick..Jason Walton should have run more at Ford... he is class but not the best in defence... still wasn't it great to be back watching the game and seeing friends that we haven't seen for ages!! ... great idea putting the tables out at the Amber Ribbon bar ... the beer and chat after the game.... priceless!!
  13. Commentary had me in stitches .. Cory .. Hindy.. Jim.. and many other London players 'my mates' names ... Oh a good tackle by the Dewsbury player!! .. no name!! and when they tried they got it wrong unless it was Sykes or Finn!! Where do Our League find these people!! I have to say that for me Our league commentary makes me not want to bother again... still I could always turn the sound off!!
  14. Yes I know I should have posted a link .... I was just trying to post the team on the page ..... unsuccessfully!! Thanks !!
  15. My apologies ... pressed the wrong button when trying to load the squad for Sunday and accidentally deleted the thread!! The squad is available on the RFL website ..... I won't try to copy and paste it again just in case!! Again sorry!!
  16. Really disappointed to read that Connor Scott has left ... he was our best forward in the few games we played last season! ... Where has he gone?
  17. Toulouse Featherstone York Widnes London Bradford Halifax Swinton Dewsbury Sheffield Batley Newcastle Whitehaven Oldham
  18. Shows great potential .. but a liability if he continues to keep getting sent off!! ....
  19. So Toronto stay in SL!!! .... well at least many of their ex players do!!.
  20. Fans Q&A Podcast Dewsbury Rams can reveal that the club has decided to release a pre-recorded podcast in the next few weeks to update everyone of the latest news from the club. The podcast will comprise of Rams chairman Mark Sawyer and Head Coach Lee Greenwood who will be answering questions. In normal times we would usually have a fans forum to do this around this time of year. However due to Covid 19 restrictions this won’t be possible for the foreseeable future and we think that this is the easiest way for people to still be able to ask questions and gain answers. If you would like to submit a question please email dewsburyramsmedia@gmail.com Emails must be received by this Friday 27th November. Questions that are placed on social media won’t be asked and need to be emailed in to the address above. Due to time constraints it may not be possible to answer every question depending on how many we get and how long we devote to the answer.
  21. So.... just where did I say that?? My post outlines the factual share ownership of the company and speculates as to just how much the shares might be worth in a fire sale!!! .... you could actually take it both ways .... Implying either .. he needs the cash for Bradford or.. that he would have no chance of selling .. especially before the 16th December!! ..... but yes I do agree I need to get out more!!!
  22. So ... there are 650 shares in the holding company ... 443 owned by the Sawyer family .. 97 still attributed to Graham Beaumont ..and a further 65 attributed to a pension fund investment company based in Ipswich and 45 attributed to a property management company also based in Ipswich. ..... What might the price of the shares be in a fire sale before the 16th December?
  23. The club .. meaning the team and a stadium lease ... or the holding company and the trust!! 2 very very different things!!!
