  1. Thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's game, even though we threw it away. York should be respected, no stars just 17 blokes with desire and a great coach. I must be alone in thinking that the ref made the correct call 're the disallowed try. Pretty sure he bounced it down. Thought Chizzy sin bin was harsh and no worse than the York played holding down later on. You win some, you lose some. York is one of my favourite drinking venues. Hope we get them in the playoffs
  2. Not bought the Hemsworth & Elmsall for a while. It did 3/4 years ago. I'll have a look when I get back
  3. We were really late. Our flight was delayed, so we didn't get to our accommodation until about 1am. We overslept and only made it to the 3 Brewers about 1/2 an hour before kick off. Sorry I missed you. Great game, we ran you much closer than I thought we would. Had a right laugh partying after the game. Got a very sore head this morning.
  4. Can't see us winning, just hoping for a good effort that we can build on for the end of the season. TWP 32 - 16 FEV Heard great things about the after party, proper looking forward to that.
  5. Didn't make the connection when I read the report Go on, tell us your real rating 5/100?
  6. Think I'll be far too knackered by then, but if I feel human enough after the flight I'll make one in. It looks pretty close to our apartment.
  7. It did. But it's also our holiday for the year, we're off to Niagra and then New York for a few days too. I'm a travel agent, so I called in a few perks and favours I also got a welcome contribution from the bank of mum and dad
  8. Excellent. If you see a fat grey haired bloke in shorts, flip flops and a Fev shirt, with his wife and 3 teenagers in tow, that's me. I'll almost certainly have a pint (or is it 1/2 litre in Canada?) in my hand.
  9. Steady on Kman. You should know by now that Fev don't play to the script. And Percy isn't scared of the big bad wolf. Hope he's coming. I'm heading down to dirty London on Thursday to catch my flight over. Really looking forward to it.
  10. Don't be silly. The higher ranked team already gets the benefit of home advantage in the earlier rounds. And your daft comment about 70,000 cap stadiums is the deflection. Finals are generally played at neutral venues, which I'm sure you know, but true to form, you're being deliberately contrary.
  11. Last time it was there (Fev v Leigh), they didn't open the south stand. The crowd looked quite good on TV, since the cameras couldn't really see the south stand.
  12. Reading the article, Elstone has only had initial discussions. Doubt it's worth getting excited about just yet.
  13. It is a lot to ask in terms of travel for those teams. But why are the 12 UK chairmen only thinking about it now? It was obvious to me at the start of the season that we could have an issue with this. A decision has been made and rightly or wrongly, they have to stick to it this year. Change it to a neutral venue next year, then we all continue to know what we're playing for. I doubt many would make a final in Toronto, we'd only get one week notice and it would be difficult to arrange time off etc. Although I'd have a bloody good go at it if we (Fev) got there. Toulouse would be fine, it only needs one night away and is often cheaper than getting a train to London. A switched on UK chairman would hire a big screen at the stadium for the fans to view the game on. Anyhow, I'm flying out to Toronto on Friday and am really looking forward to what will probably be a once in a lifetime experience.
