  1. 1. Jack Austin 2, Steve Hankins (Remember Sammy Lloyd) 3. Joe Whittington
  2. Just watched Wigan v Bradford in CC semi back in 1992 and everything you say about Offiah is there in abundance. 71-10 what a performance
  3. Another great obviously Greg Ashcroft. Remember him toying with the late great Clive Sullivan at Hull one night and leaving him standing.
  4. Yes has to be Eddie Rombo at one for me. Bryn Powell at two, not just for his pace but his strength and clearing the line. Dennis Bailey at three. Others to consider. Lets not forget Austin Buchanan and can't remember if Kane Epati played on the wing but I remember him scoring against Hunslet at home with a bad leg and still leaving all the defence in his wake.
  5. The Walker brothers at the Rams. Patch, James & Matthew.
  6. Sale Football Ground I believe. Sale RU play at AJ Bell

    V Leigh

    Thought we did well to hold them in the first half but you always knew it was coming. They had the players with that little bit of magic to turn the game when needed. Their forwards ran hard and straight and were just too good for us. Defensively they were excellent and didn't really give us a sniff even though we had some long spells on their line. Well played Leigh. Not too disappointed but we need to generate some imagination when we have the ball in hand.
  8. "Sorry, but you must have a short memory. The last season under the Messiah, NK, was equally dire yet with more opportunity to plan than last year. He stated that he needed a much bigger budget, which we simply couldn't afford. LG was green and had a lot to learn; we were late into the market thanks to the coaching situation; and we all acknowledged that it would be a season for survival, nothing more. LG achieved that." Sorry BSJ youv'e missed the point surely. Last year we couldn't plan because, as you say, the Messiah gave us little time. LG has had a full season and we are now going back into training shortly. We currently have a small squad with no information coming forward as to how it is going to be strengthened. LG has had plenty of time this season and has had plenty of time to go into the market to strengthen it , do you agree? The squad we currently have is no stronger than we had last year. It needs to take shape quickly to encourage us all to have your enthusiasm.
  9. Is it just me, maybe slightly off topic, but we will back in training in maybe 3 weeks time. We are coming back in 2019/2020 on the back of, let's be honest, a shocking season. We just managed to survive. Certain posters on this forum constantly had a pop at our last coach for leaving a sinking ship and giving the club very little time to appoint a new coach and assemble a competitive squad for the coming season. I seem to remember that outgoing coach making his intentions clear prior to our last match. Our new set up has the benefit of a coach who has had the benefit of a full season. I see no temptation at the moment to tempt me in to parting with any of my hard earned income for what may be in store for next season. We have been notified of players leaving and the odd re signing. I have seen a lot of info being released by other clubs as to new signings, plans etc. Come on Dewsbury Rams give us some encouragement to look forward to next year and whet our appetites. Not particularly interested in a new assistant coach with no track record. Time will tell. I want the club to attract me for the forthcoming season. The opportunity is there. Let's get moving.
  10. Interesting. Your probably more in the know than me Graham. Only reason I mentioned it was I went out for a family meal last night and my son in law, who has grown up with them both and works with one, came straight out with it saying both were signing. I admit I was a bit surprised.
  11. Heard on the grapevine a certain winger from Batley is coming across. Always caused us problems in the past holding him. Also a centre who I believe played at Salford and Fev. Just hope his knee has cleared up.
  12. Thought a draw would have been a fair result. Exciting game to watch from a score point of view. Not a game for the purists. Fev got their rewards for targeting Finn's defence and it worked everytime.

    What a fantastic performance by Fax this afternoon. Never looked like scoring a try but boy did they put in a shift. Well done Fax. You did the championship proud .
