  1. Only to be expected when a new coach comes in. He's said numerous times he's open to giving players a chance at Championship level. Some have thrived, others haven't.
  2. West Wales Raiders 16-40 North Wales Crusaders Keighley Cougars 14-30 Whitehaven Newcastle Thunder 54-14 Coventry Bears Oldham 26-22 Doncaster
  3. Toronto Wolfpack 72-4 Rochdale Hornets Toulouse Olympique 40-10 Batley Bulldogs Dewsbury Rams 14-30 Bradford Bulls Sheffield Eagles 36-16 Barrow Raiders Leigh Centurions 30-18 Widnes Vikings Swinton Lions 18-22 Halifax York City Knights 16-27 Featherstone Rovers
  4. A brave performance against a very good side. I don't know about anyone else but I'm really looking forward to next season already. I'm sure Lee will bring in the right players to make us a much better side.
  5. They must be very confident of promotion. Surely those players won’t join if Thunder are still in League 1 next season?
  6. When you consider Lee came in late, a number of our best players had moved on and the teams around us were bringing in players with big reputations, I’m fairly satisfied where we are. On our day we’re a very solid team - you don’t go and beat Widnes and Featherstone unless you’ve got something about you. We’ve all said it a million times but all those close games - York home and away, Toronto at home, Sheffield at home, Swinton away, Barrow away etc. Even if we’d won just two of those games our season would have a very different feel to it. Credit to Lee for bringing in Garratt - he’s been superb and it’s great he’s signed on for next season. I imagine there will be a few players moved on but I’m very confident in Lee’s ability to bring in the right replacements. Next season’s squad will be Lee’s, and I’m looking forward to seeing who he brings in.
  7. To survive, Barrow will have to win at least three games and hope the teams above them don’t win a single game. They’ve only won four all season. Their remaining games: York (h) Bradford (h) Sheffield (a) Toronto (a) Batley (h) Hard to see three wins there I reckon..
  8. Rochdale 12-32 Rams Lovely stuff! A dodgy first half but well done to the coaching staff for their half-time talk. Onwards and upwards!
  9. Strange one this. He’s a very talented player - Salford signed him three years ago and he was training full-time before being shipped out on dual registration. I’ve heard from a previous coach of his that his attendance at training was, shall we say, not what it should have been. He’s probably a player that needs to be playing every weekend or else he loses interest. He’ll get that opportunity in League 1.
  10. He’s spot on. There are are a lot of fair, educated and decent rugby league fans, but, like in all sports, there are plenty of idiots about. Look at social media and the way people throw insults around, it’s constant. When Toronto won on Sunday, they received messages of congratulations from the Toronto Raptors and Bluejays. Two iconic sporting clubs that are known throughout the world. But there are people out there that want Toronto to fail - purely because they’re jealous. No disrespect to clubs like Oldham, Keighley and plenty of others, but their time is running out. They were once great clubs but now they’re staring down the barrel of a gun. I can understand if you’re an Oldham fan and you’re upset with how things are going, but it’s your clubs fault - not Toronto’s.
  11. Ask yourself which game St Helens would rather win - A meaningless league game or a Challenge Cup semi-final? Saints have earned the right to rest whoever they like, for what they see as a much bigger game in the Challenge Cup. It’s as simple as that.
  12. Rams 28-28 Halifax That could end up being a massive point come the end of the season, especially with Barrow getting tonked by Swinton. Well done Rams.
  13. Great news for the sport. Not such great news news for Championship teams who rely on 3/4 Super League players playing for them on dual registration.
  14. Two wins will almost certainly be enough, but other than the Rochdale game it’s not easy to see where the other one will come from. Widnes have been diabolical on the road lately, so that’s definitely a winnable game. The Swinton v Barrow game this weekend is massive. If Barrow win that then it’s squeaky bum time.
