  1. Although this is a Bulls forum, (sorry Featherstone ) a number of other clubs have been mentioned as possible candidates for promotion to Super League. Living in Yorkshire it seems to me that the OBVIOUS and CERTAIN winner has been overlooked. Decipher this. (. HILGE )
  2. Who will be our replacement half backs if either Sykes or Finn are unavailable?
  3. I for one am really pleased that Tom Garrat is returning to the Rams. He was such a powerhouse when he played before and he has all my best wishes for the coming season whenever it starts. I'm also waiting for any news on Chris Annakin and hope he decides to stay. We will have a very strong and formidable pack by the look of how things are shaping up. Covid may not be lifting much yet but my spirits are today. News today of older people soon to receive the new vaccine injections could be the start of better times ahead.
  4. Take a look at the Bulls site on totalrl.com for a brief glimpse of our former prop Luke Menzies pro wrestling in the USA. It says he now lives inOrlando. Anybody who saw him play will instantly recognise him, and it’s good to know he has recovered from his serious throat injury at Dewsbury. Says he wears a flat cap and goes by the name of Ridge Holland for wrestling purposes. Performs a body check like a true Rams prop.
  5. Charley Sealing ( look him up about 1930 -1940 ? ) , David Wilmot and father, Biltcliffe and Bosworth all lived roughly in the same area. Now that's going back a bit!
  6. Surprised no one mentioned Billy Pickup
  7. Thunder were well organised by bob Beswick and their attacking line looked a good formation when running and passing. A bit like the 'red arrows' - organised. We have never had that look about our 'back' line and seem to play more ad hoc. Even Swinton last season and dare I say Batley also last season looked more dangerous. Its more obvious when you get a higher viewing position from the TV cameras. The corona problem may give us more time to solve this issue although I know we will not be training.

    Can’t speak English my foot- of course they can. Typical French being awkward and uncooperative. Glad we are out.
  9. Therein73 has clarified something that quite a few people have asked about - namely that the price for hospitality also includes admission to the match. I Know it's obvious to most people but it's not stated in the club info and might just persuade mildly interested persons to become very interested.
  10. Just noticed that our home match on Sunday March 1st is now a 6-15pm kick off. Its one of the OURLEAGUE matches which I heard somewhere we have to contribute financially towards. ?

    I also agree that we played much better than last season and think that we would have been better still if the injured Knowles had been at scrum half. His tackling and running is very strong. Unlike some posters I think that Sykes had one of his best games for us since joining. His attack running was much stronger and elusive, and his passing more accurate. He gave the team more go forward near the line, but as mentioned earlier by other posters we need more zip from other contributors. Over all I was happy with the performance - the forwards did well against a bigger stronger and more mobile opponent.
  12. Anybody know admission price? Am I correct in assuming only the main stand will be open? Good luck Thornhill.

    Thanks for the info. That leads me to a new score of 8 points to 20. I suppose it also depends on what strength team the centurions put out against Wigan. Looking forward to the game as it reminds me of the 2 / 3 ? seasons when we had a strong team under Nei Kelly and tussled with Leigh for a promotion spot. Hope the pitch is in decent condition after all this rain.

    Sorry, but Leigh beat Wigan in a pre-season warm up hence my forecast of an unfortunate rams loss by 8 points to 30. Hope I am wrong but it will give the team a good test which will prepare them in a good way for the rest of the season. The ‘experts’ have us down to finish the season in 10th to 12th position. It’s better than relegation but I am hoping for higher.
  15. Glad to see that Batley have discovered a consistent goal kicker in somebody called Dale Morton ! Strange we did not see / use is skills more. But then an inconsistent kicker can take you from depression to jubilation and back again quite a few times in one game. Much better than getting bored with all successful kicks.?!?§€
