  1. Duffy leaving was the best thing that could of happened to Fev...Led to Ryan Carr coming in who is several levels above Duffy and better than most SL coaches imo. Watching Carrs Fev, you could just tell you were watching a very well coached team...Exciting rugby played within a good structure.
  2. Siddal do a fantastic job develping young players, there Holroyd, Smithies team of a few year ago and the u15 Edwards, Gannon team are two of the best age grade community teams in recent history... but Quick mention for Batley Boys for there part in develping Levi Edwards, he played for them before joining Siddal, he was already regarded as a super talent before he went to Siddal at the start of his u15 season.
  3. Agree 100%, horrible rule that now has players more concerned with fighting to keep possession rather than looking to make yards after contact or looking for an offload, rubbish rule change.
  4. Good to hear, thought he'd be a great signing for you's. His go forward has always been excellent, for a big lad he's a good athlete.
  5. Hows Tyler Dupree going for you? Always rated him in our Academy, was sad to see him leave.
  6. Well done, but you dont need to of been to the games to know the teams. 1999 we played saints without the same lineup, Harris on the bench, no Mcdermott, Blackmore or Powell, 3 days after the final, against 13 men. Cant have it both ways, if your being clever with your nuanced wording ' leeds cup winning side' then that wasnt it. How about the rest period inbetween games? or the playing against a man down for the majority of the game?...Were they the same? Am i , or anyone else for that matter, allowed to have any emotion after our teams have played poorly? Or are we all drama
  7. Yeah ok, you worded it like that deliberately, lets pretend you didnt forget about the saints game... Even allowing for your nuanced wording, did all the other cup winning teams over those 40+ years, field the same team selection in there next game after winning the cup? The answers no, so your points invalid immediately. Replacing nuance for context, lets say we class last night as our first proper game after winning the cup...Did all the other cup winning teams have 9 days between winning the cup and there next game, the answers no. Did all the other cup winning teams play against
  8. Il be anything i please Thanks for the history lesson, not quite the next game we played though.
  9. Cas played well, Leeds were utter rubbish. Dont think iv ever been so angry after a win.
  10. There was an oppurtunity there, men outside Smith to go through hands. Exactly what Gale was saying to Smith under the sticks (if my lip reading skills are up to scratch) Smith ruined it by taking an option that wasnt needed, and executing that bad option poorly.
  11. The refs giving Leeds everything imo, unfortunately we'r playing that badly, we havnt taken advantage of it. Good to see Gale getting into Smith, stupidity like that deserves calling out, had loads of men outside him to go through hands, idiotic play...Id bench him for rest of the game, but thats why id make a rubbish coach!
  12. New assistant coach at Leeds from next season, good hire for the Rhinos?
  13. Credit to Hull for turning up on such short notice and being right in the game until the couple of late trys. Thought they played well, first time iv seen the young lad Brown play...Was very impressed, he looks a good player. Cameron Scott is a quality young center, this games another example of why i absolutely hate it when young Centers are 'Eased' into first grade on the wing, its ancient coach thinking from decades ago...Kicking games are so much better and tactical these days that even experienced, natural wingers get bombed to death...A young lad who's naturaly a centers got no ch
  14. Its highly likely the player pool would increase because theres 1 more academy taking players on. Harrison cant force clubs to run an Academy, I totally agrre with you that clubs should be forced to run them at superleague level, but thats a different discussion and not something Harrison can control. I also doubt his Academy would be getting all the best players
  15. He thinks theres going to be less and less clubs running Academys going forward, so he claims its to try to keep as many youngsters in the game as possible. Does it really matter if he makes money out of it? If his potential Academy was offering more chances, or better chances for young players to have a career in the game...I couldnt care less if he makes a profit.
  16. Think this is what Craig Harrison is trying to set up, an independent Scholorship/Academy that will play against the clubs but not linked to any club, he would then have a selection process for clubs to draft players from his Academy. Seems a pretty good idea on the surface.
  17. Same outcome...only an organisation of idiots would punish any club for not travelling across countries during a worldwide pandemic and only an idiot would think a punishment would be justified.
  18. Well done...But dont think its a big suprise to anyone that Leeds are pushing for option 3, unfortunately i dont think they'l be the only ones...Put 3 options in front of a group of business men, especially at a time like this, theyr most likely going to pick the option that earns them the most cash in the shortest term, thats option 3. Hope im wrong, but id be shocked if the eventual outcome dosnt look close to option 3, with maybe a couple of modifications
  19. Option 3 is 100% GH's option, theres a piece in the local Yorkshire paper from him and he's giddy at the prospect of option 3. Which teams agree with him is the important thing, id guess the same teams voting for a cap reduction will be with him. My feeling is option 3, or a slightly modified version of option 3, is what we'l get.
  20. Disgrace that some clubs are wanting the cap lowered. Very disappointed in my club Leeds, who are reported to be one of them.
  21. Dont think anyones saying theyr winning the comp this year, just that theyr a very exciting young team, with the potential to be very good in the near future.
  22. Yeah, i was just focusing on the younger players in there squad in my last post, but like you say, theyv got a few good older heads to lead the way aswel. Unbelievable that Millfords still so young, feels like he's been around forever, Corey Oates and Andrew McCullough are Queensland rep players, Matthew Lodge is a good prop and Alex Glenn and Darius Boyd, whilst well past there best, offer loads of club and rep experience for the young stars to call on. Liie i said earlier, iv been a Warriors man since i can remember, but the thing im excited about most for the NRL coming back and for th
  23. Probably the Broncos if your after a team of young potential, Haas and Fifita are genuine superstars in the making, Pangai Jr is a monster...Kerrigan, flegler and Ofahengaue are also part of a frightening young pack. Kotoni Staggs is one of the best young centers in the world, Jermaine Isaako is a young Kiwi international FB/Wing. Brodie Croft at half, Jake Turpin Hooker/Halfback.... Theyv had a youth movement there with youngsters playing plenty of NRL games. Theres a few below them aswel who are highly rated, Deardon, Coates and Farnworth(English lad) among a few others are a
  24. Always liked the Warriors but really looking forward to watching Brisbanes young pack of monsters, so il go Broncos.
  25. Behave, thats a weak argument even for you. Two totally different things, fighting off the field, for what they think theyr owed or should recieve, is not even remotely close to only giving 80% on the field as you suggested was an 'issue' . Iv asked you to point me to any comments etc that point to the players not giving 100% when they start playing...As yet, you havnt been able to show me any, so for now, there is no issue on that front. You saying its an issue dosnt make it an issue, neither does an article that dosnt once mention any players potential lack of application or effor
