    IMG Review

    Let's be truthful, any review or consultation the RFL have ever been involved in has never ever been anything but a paper exercise, as they have already decided what they think is best for the clubs, the players and supporters before any consultation takes place.
  2. People like Anthony Murray are always watching out for new talent coming through the amateur ranks, he will have watched majority of this seasons Cumbria NCL teams games on the app, and he has plenty of friends and contacts throughout Cumbria.
  3. It will be interesting to see his stance on his pack at Newcastle next season, also wonder if he will be looking to take some of the Town players with him to the toon.
  4. He was only at Town because he was mates with Thorman, and that's the only reason he kept his spot.
  5. Defo, Thorman is Thunders problem now, Murray is a decent guy with plenty of connections in the game, and good at man management, something Thorman lacked, the big plus is the early appointment giving him time to rebuild for next season. ,
  6. Luke Gale still available, could be player coach, he is spending a bit of time in West Cumbria at present.
  7. Also coached Millom for a couple of seasons, i think.
  8. Correct, and once he left CT took over,
  9. Did someone not say in an earlier post that the B O D had let CT sort out the negotiations and contracts for the 2022 seasons players.
  10. It worked ok in the NCL when playing with the covid restrictions in place.
  11. Personally, i think under a different coach and if we had retained the players we have lost over the season, we could have made a fight of it, ok maybe not staying up, but going down with a fight and with a bit of pride.
  12. Honestley it dosent happen, that was just a PR thing,
  13. Think Jamie has had a few beers on him when wrote that and just taking the ######,
  14. Seriously, you must be joking, Hensingh am like other amateurs clubs don't have contracts for either players or coach's,
  15. but the community clubs in the NCL would have to vote you in first.
  16. Fully agree, and both CH and the club will have learnt a lot from his stint at Derwent park, its all to the future now and re building.
  17. My point is, if ether Haven or Town had any ambitions in bringing the local youngsters through in to the semi pro game, they should have implemented the same programme that Barrow have implemented, both had the chance.
  18. This is what I'm getting at, neither club have any ambition to do as what barrow has achieved. But happy to help Hull.
  19. My point is, Whitehaven aren't getting a lot out of this agreement with Hull are they, as the top players are still going out the county again, if only anyone with any sense at both clubs had copied the Barrows Jets programme,
  20. A couple of lads have already traveled to Hull, in my eyes that's cherry picking isent it
  21. I did mean traveling to Hull,
  22. It's usually just the gate money that is split, goes towards other expenses, but up to the home club to make the best of selling food/drink ect,
  23. Is it not a fact that only are a couple are at Hull also, and the youngsters have droped out of both academy set ups,
  24. Let's not forget Jamie is full time whilst doing the community programme for the club, unless the club have been able to get grants to cover the roll in Allerdale, also what has the Rfl done with the money that was allocated for covering Marnie's job, a post that has never been replaced.
  25. You don't have to go looking to see anything when a player steps him or when he misses a high ball and a easy try is scored, and that's why his lack of defence stands out, and yes plenty of other players haven't been rubbish, but he has lot of easy tries in, but to be truthful not many of CT recruits have been any good, and he has lost a lot of local talent that shod have been the future of the club, but it's time to look to the future and re start the building process, but a lot of thought must be put into this by the bod, I think a lot of changes must happen and quickly.
