  1. I think Headingley would be the ideal location, followed by Doncaster, Leigh, Warrington. With respect, Odsal is an awful choice. It's falling to bits, looks terrible on TV and is not a pleasant place for the fans.
  2. Think the OP is being very premature (my wife tells me I am all the time ) We've had a good run, but this league is tough and extremely un-predictable. I'm a long way from getting giddy just yet. And FWIW I don't buy into the RFL hate us conspiracy nonsense.
  3. The Johnstone injury was priceless. Tried to put in a grubby late shot/shoulder charge on Dane Chisholm. Karma
  4. Super League shouldn't be helping any club. It's a club's responsibility to use it's available funding to put a team out, build a fan base and provide adequate facilities. RL is arguably in the strongest position it's been in for years. Thanks to having a strong 2nd division, there are plenty of teams knocking on the door ready to take the weaker club's places and move the game forward.
  5. You just can't change the rules mid season. If Leeds go down, then they're to blame. They'll have a year of getting back some humility and visit a few places they've not been to for a while. It'll do them the world of good and will no doubt be a one season blip.
  6. Pretty embarrassing wasn't it? I was sat a few rows in front of them cringing. Rest assured it was a small minority. Disappointed the stewards did nothing. I've made my feelings known to the club. It's totally unacceptable. It won't be the 20 or so morons paying the fine when The RFL are forced to act.
  7. Luckily, I'm sunning myself in Ibiza at the moment, but I understand that Ponte is looking delightful in the sunshine today Amazed you know what traffic lights are. Isn't it still 1876 in Cas and everyone's running around on horses and carts? Edit: Remembered that you've been transported to the penal colonies.
  8. If you like standing, then it's just the Post Office Road end, everywhere else is seating. I prefer sitting on the far side. For a big game like this, the away fans usually congregate at the railway end. As others have said, plenty of drink outlets. Blue Lagoon under the far side stand is good and has a great collection of memorabilia. There's a bar behind the main stand, at the POR end and there's the fan zone near the main stand, which iirc has the widest selection of beer/lager/cider other than the clubhouse. There's food behind the main stand and at the POR end. Sometimes when the larger teams visit they put a pop up bar on at the railway end. Not sure if this will be in play on Sunday or not. You can park in the club car park for £5, or if you're tight like me, there's loads of side streets off Station Lane that can be used. Have a great day.
  9. Some fine chippies in Fev Ian. Small wonder the queue is huge. You poor Cas lot can only gaze in wonder at what a decent stadium looks like, refurbished without the benefit of circa £2M a year in Sky money
  10. Swore blind I wasn't going to Blackpool again. I'm away on a work trip on Ibiza Saturday, feeling a bit gutted now and wish I was going. I'll find myself a northerner friendly bar and watch it. UTR
  11. I get the feeling I'm going to thoroughly enjoy Toronto on July 13th
  12. Talking to MC the other night in Ponte, to all intents and purposes he's our player to do with what we will. The only reason it's a loan is because of Visa issues if we signed him properly. MC reckoned there was no chance of a recall, so I'd guess we're free to play him too.
  13. Good one Kman, you're a true Rugby League fan. You're as one eyed as the rest of us In that spirit. I've not seen a recording of the game yet, but Bussey was definitely the victim and both Beswick and Simms need banning for at least eleventy seven games.
  14. Thanks a lot TPH. Five years of therapy erasing them from my memory down the tubes.
  15. Sorry about that. A red mist descended after that dodgy short kick off call from Mr Hewer. (I was sat on the 10m line). It's entirely possible that I lost the plot and shouted several words that my mother would disown me for. Repeatedly, right in his ear hole.
  16. Best team lost Fantastic effort from Fev. Just lacked a bit of composure when we went into the lead. Gutted
  17. As others have said, Pub O'Clock and Melting Pot are popular with Brits. Had a good crack last year with some visiting RUFC types from Bristol and this year with some ex-pat Airbus employees. Le Frog et Rosbif is a nice pub too, especially for food and is a bit less rowdy than these two.
  18. Last year the bus service was OK. With my limited GCSE (D Grade) french, I think one of the locals at the bus stop this year told me that it was suspended early because of the Gillets Jaunes.
  19. That's brilliant. Well done Wakey. First big, international sponsor in the game since Emirates.
  20. This year, hopeful Tornoto. It'll give the game some much needed publicity are help to shake off the whippet and cloth cap image. Following year Toulouse, big shot in the arm for French RL.
