  1. One of my funniest memories was against Blackpool. The pitch was covered with about 100 ton of sand due to all the rain we had had.

    We scored a try and someone comes running on with a "bucket of sand" for the kicker" Interestingly the kicker waited for him to come on and some wag shouted "where did you get that?"

    He missed the kick, probably laughing too much!

  2. Watching the Salford game I'm sure I heard booing when a goal kick was taking place - I hope I was wrong.

    If that was the case anything goes - like the BBC loves rugby yawnion or something similar.

  3. Who was that fullback we had a couple of season's back? I think he was on loan from either Wakefield or Featherstone.

    If he was available he would be a great acquisition. Also has Kershaw retired? He had a fallout at Wakefield and talked about retirement. Again he would be a great asset to have since we are short of wingers.

  4. The idea of expansion of our great game has been a dream for the 60 years I have been watching our great game. Sadly it hasn't happened. Justifying this argument where are Scarborough, Mansfield, Kent, Chorley, Carlisle, etc. they are all no longer playing semi-professional rugby never mind professional rugby.

    Newcastle is an exception. They have a wealthy chairman who funds both the RU and RL sides.  SL now has all the money strings and they are only concerned about self and the rest will either struggle on a little bit longer or go bust.

    Looking at the amateur game, many cubs had two and some had three teams, now some struggle to field one side! The major cause I feel is summer rugby. Players in summer have too many other things to do but during winter there are fewer distractions. Another causal factor in the reduction of players is the demise of RL in the schools for whatever reason.

    To sort it out is a massive task of the RL but sadly they will continue to bury their heads in the sand until all that exists is SL That is until Sky pulls the plug!

  5. Surely CH MUST be talking to the existing squad to ensure we have team for next season.

    With regards to this Micky Mouse competition will the games be behind closed gates and is it open to all championship and first division sides? If it's open to everybody possibly just playing one game isn't worth the hassle for both players and spectators.

  6. So any idea when we will start?

    Do you think they might expunge all the results from this season and restart this season. If so I need to book my trip to Toulouse!

  7. Whatever happened to the £16 million given to the sport so as  to offset the loss of revenue?

    I am also acutely worried about the restart. Our crowds were abysmally poor before the lockdown and those who did suffer the games this season could have found better ways of spending their time and money. I hope I am wrong.
