  1. This. The Summer Bash at Headingley would be like packing a picnic and having a day trip to Knottingley. I dont like places like Blackpool or Weston-super-Mare. They have been perfectly described above but as a venue for the Summer Bash it ticks every box. It's the only place the missus has been to watch Fev play and we've had a great time with the kids too. Blackpool like most other coastal resorts are fab for families in the right places at the right time ie not behind the central pier or tower after dark!
  2. Completely agree. Gutted this is not on the calendar. Whether with family or mates it's a great day out. No excitement for this type of game at Headingley.
  3. Strange and unusual to be renegotiated shorter? Its a moot point. What matters is that Chizzy is under contract for the coming season. Fantastic news.
  4. No damp squib for me. I'd guess we made an incorrect assumption about his contract length. He's a top quality player and could easily find another club if free to do so. To retain him is great news. Well done to those Involved. Bussey next. Please.
  5. I had hoped we might have tried to get him.
  6. Well done JC for managing this. Its been an interesting read through the season. Great work.
  7. Let's dust ourselves off and go again next season. Hope we resign Bussey and Fetgie. Save for their susceptibility to injury they are two passionate and destructive players as demonstrated today.
  8. 1. Halton 2. Hardcastle 3. Brown
  9. Thought Batley were bang average at best. Halifax were the best of the four and will take some beating. As long as we prepare correctly and take nothing for granted we should win. We have a number of top quality players at this level and far more than Halifax imo. We also have a couple of xfactor players such as Chizzy and Hall who should relish the big game but I don't see those type of players in the Fax squad.
  10. They have more momentum than anyone else outside the top two. I would be more fearful about playing them than anyone else in the semi. Fev v Haven in the final at Post Office Road anyone? Stranger things have happened.
  11. Not when he's sat in the stand he isn't. As said previously he was really good in his first season but when he returned this season after the knee injury he was pretty anonymous and never got going until this last serious injury. When Harrison and Halton leave, JD, Moores Bussey Ferres and now even Field can't really be classed as inferior as back rowers so don't feel too bad for us!
  12. Looks like it's Catalan Dragons according to his mate unless it's a bluff.
  13. I can only assume the B Ox has not lost his sense of mischief and humour with his Saltonstall comment.
  14. Completely agree with this. Like everyone I will be sorry to see Parata go but Wildie is a team player with a good football brain and for me a top Championship player.
  15. Thats a great question AV. As soon as you mentioned the blanket. I (like you TPH) pictured a lady who I remembered was called Annie and this other chap who you have said, in my minds eye, had a striking resemblance to Rick Wakeman. Was there a song sung about this man? (Don't be mistaken, don't be misled ...)+ Its crazy that this practice existed but then it was before Health and Safety had been invented I guess. No hard hats or goggles with coins flung from 20 or 30 feet away at a small target. I remember most people laughing when the blanket carriers were hit with some aiming for them rather than the blanket. No-one really thought about the consequences. Happy memories.
