  1. He was announced by Halifax the other week
  2. CCR what's the split of unannounced signings in terms of new / re-signings from last year? Ky Johnson, Danny Bridge?
  3. Once l'd seen the line-ups I switched over. One of the glamour ties of SL, one that casual fans may tune in to watch, disrespected. Hopefully Wigan will also lose the semi.
  4. Excellent signing that should stiffen our defence out wide. Looking forward to the new season whenever that may be!
  5. We have probably done OK out of Covid-19. Central funding, sponsorship, season tickets, merchandise without having to expense player salaries, ground hire etc.
  6. Stefan Ratchford would be a better option than many on the list. Elusive runner with good hands to chime into the line.
  7. Oldham v Rochdale. Modest clubs now but the A627M derby and the Law Cup 'friendly' always throws up a competitive & sometimes fiery encounter. I always find they are better when we are in different divisions rather than playing each other 3 - 4 times in the same season.
  8. Why couldn't TW effectively play each of their home games at the away clubs ground and negotiate (with SL) a percentage split of profit (after maychday expenses) with the host club? TW are effectively based in Rochdale and this would have reduced expenditure & allowed them to fulfill fixtures without the fear of relegation.
  9. Played on loan for Oldham in League 1 & the Championship & is a good player but probably not quite good enough for Super League. Whilst a number of Championship clubs would be interested no-one will pay a transfer fee. Wakefield should thank him for his efforts & let him move on for free.
  10. Dewsbury result wasn't entirely surprising as Widnes are pretty ordinary in the forwards but have an exciting back line. From memory, Dewsbury is probably the narrowest pitch in the division and wouldn't therefore suit Widnes' style of play. Next week is a huge game and we need to be flying from the first whistle.
  11. It was always going to be tough and there are 3 sub divisions within the Championship: those fighting for top 5 (Toulouse); those in mid table but not challenging for top 5 but in no danger of relegation (Widnes); and those fighting against relegation (Whitehaven). We have 2 very big games coming up against Bradford and Dewsbury at home and these are games where we have to target getting some points (although Bradford likely to be mid table). To rebuild needs money, which we don't have so we need to support the team and try to reinforce through dual reg & loan system. No point wishing for things that aren't going to happen.
  12. We need to be realistic. Games against Widnes and Toulouse are not going to keep us in the division. Whitehaven, Swinton , Batley and Dewsbury will dictate whether we stay up or not. Next weekend is our first winnable game. Let's see where we are after that.
  13. Widnes well deserved to win today as every time they went wide they looked like scoring. The forwards more than held their own which for me was the biggest plus of the day. The referee gave us nothing all day and we were on the harsh end of a lot of decisions. Widnes will finish mid table this season and Whitehaven away is our first winnable game.
  14. I assume that none of you are aware of the trouble at Saturday's game with local youths throwing things over the fence (bricks, bottle, length of pipe) during the game and goading the Saints fans? It started off with 2 kids and ended with a gang of about 15. A lot of fans ended up moving behind the try line. Glad that we aren't playing there this season. Good game for both sides with us having plenty of ball to practice new moves with and new attacking kicks.
