  1. It was a disappointing game for the neutral last night but Coventry were dominant right from the off. They capitalised on the errors and scored some nice tries. Cov didn't really need to do anything special, they were solid and have some impressive players. congrats to them for the 4 in a row. As for the Raiders, well, oh dear. Having been a ST holder for the All Golds I knew a couple of their players. I may be biased but they seemed like the only players who knew how to play. Too many soft tackle attempts. They need more experienced players to help the new lads along. I don't know how they keep going, they have big hearts. As a side, for those who have watched League 1 in recent years know what a threat Steve Parry is at hooker, scored plenty, set plays up and got the team moving forward. In my opinion he is wasted in the halves. hopefully both teams will continue to grow.
  2. Interesting game in West Wales this weekend. should be quite a good game. I see that West Wales have made a few more experienced signings recently with a few more likely to be on the way. Sod it, I'm going for a Raiders win this weekend. Mainly because they have a growing number of ex All Golds
  3. This may be a silly question so forgive me. Do Swindon train and work as one big squad with the teams changing from week to week or are they pretty settled teams throughout the season?
  4. Going back to the Sonics, there is a very good interview with Phil Cole on the League One Show podcast this week which is well worth a listen
  5. As a former All Golds season ticket holder I was excited to see the name back and to go to see my first game of the season tomorrow, both the new club and at this level. This sad news and reading the posts above definitely puts another spin on it. The AG/OX merger was never and is never going to happen. It has been mentioned on twitter about aggressive recruitment by the All Golds, excuse my ignorance but what can clubs offer that would make a player decide to go elsewhere? I do hope that this isn't the end of the Sonics
  6. It has now been confirmed on the Sonics website http://www.bristolsonics.com/sonics-withdraw-from-west-of-england-league/ massive shame!
  7. Just read the post again, What's happened with Bristol??? That's not good news at all.
  8. He mentioned on the 6 till 8 debate that he needed to play games to help with his work permit and Bradford offered him the chance. Was a month minimum i believe with no call back or he might have gone back earlier.
  9. Heard rumblings about this and then saw their fixtures. Having had a season ticket with the now defunct All Golds I look forward to the new season. Its a level of rugby I haven't seen before so really interested to see how it goes.
  10. Surprised he's gone back but he helped the All Golds last season and by all accounts was a popular bloke. All the best to the Cru fans.
  11. Who is out there to take over? Throwing a name out there, how about Lee Greenwood?
  12. Just seen on WatchNrl.com they have announced the prices.
  13. Are thunder going to keep Mo on the wing or use him at second row like he did for Jamaica? Personally I'd keep him on the wing where he was great to see at the All Golds last year.
  14. Although the All Golds went #### up I'm still very much looking forward to League 1 in 2018. Home and away fixtures adds to that. York were very impressive last year at the Prince of Wales, i would say the best team to visit. Having said that no Cumbrian teams came down due to the strange fixtures. Difficult to call all positions but I'll go York to finish top. Newcastle as dark horses, Coventry best in the south and pushing some of the more established teams. West Wales and Hemel at the bottom although they have made some good signings. Happy to be proved wrong though. A great season ahead
