  1. Post mortem revealed asphyxiation as the cause of death.
  2. Very few with people like you in the world claiming to know the outcomes before they’ve happened.
  3. Do we? Who’s going to be first try scorer and Lance Todd? I feel a visit to the bookies coming on...
  4. The idea (a competition for the lower league sides, culminating in a Wembley appearance for the finalists) was a good one, it’s just been poorly executed, IMO, with not all teams taking part (understandable given the midweek games), timing of games in midweek and the coverage it has received where finding match results has been like finding a needle in a haystack. The Northern Rail Cup was a very good watch for the neutral’s and I seem to remember Batley’s underdog victory over Leigh, the Leigh win in the dying seconds when they shaped for a drop goal and chucked it wide and I remember Cas being involved in a tight game in a Final too. This competition should be a “resurrection” of that competition and needs to be executed a little better the second time around. I’d like to see group stages in this with all UK based sides competing in future, like we used to have in the Northern Rail Cup, so teams get a more competitive set of games than usual in pre-season and so teams have a set amount of guaranteed home games in this competition before reverting to a straight knockout competition. I know it’s premature but ya anything been said about a competition next year?
  5. Is someone trying to quantify “successful” by saying it’s because of no P&R? Some people really waste the Internet.
  6. That’s not the only reason why any league should be expanded. Who knows but we’ve beaten the accumulative figure from last year with weeks to spare and had the biggest attendance in Super League history this year, it’s not been a failure of a year at all and obsessing over crowds is futile.
  7. There were an additional two sides in Super League in 2012, compared with now. Is that a fair comparison? Catalans v Wigan at Barcelona broke the individual attendance record for Super League in May this year.
  8. 1,166,425 watched Super League games in 2018, 1,291,760 have watched Super League games this year and we’re a few rounds from the season ending. That’s an increase of 10.75%. We’ve also broken the attendance record for Super League this year.
  9. I hope not. He was dealt a poor hand at Saints and made it work quite well, though did play some less than entertaining rugby in the process, which was somewhat linked. I think it’s a case of been there, done that in this instance.
  10. That you’re aware of. Just because it’s not been reported in League Express, it doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. Compared with what exactly?
  11. We’ve not had a structure change for about a year, now isn’t the time for another. We have a battle for 2nd, a battle for 5th and a battle to stay in the competition. We’re doing fine lads, keep your daft ideas to yourselves.
  12. Warrington - Thus far, we’ve beaten them quite convincingly twice, they’ve not presented us with any real questions and their key men have been kept quiet. That could all change, of course. Wigan - Similar to the above, have conceded 32pts to them (an average of 10.66) over the three games we’ve played but they’re one of the form sides at present. Hull - We’ve scored 100+ against these this year in two games, which suggests we’ve got them on their bad weeks. It’s hard to suggest any of the three have offered particular tests for Saints this year but both Wigan and Warrington coming into the final stages of the season have that big game experience that people so often speak of.
  13. No Aaron Smith as well because of a suspension. Unless I’m mistaken, I can’t remember an incident with him that led to a penalty for Leeds on Thursday being shown by Sky. Him missing out makes me feel uneasy because I wonder how fit/rusty James Roby will be. I know we still have James Bentley who can play hooker if needs be but I suppose it’s just nerves leading up to the game. Also a point on Blake Austin. He’s been worse than woeful in the two games he’s played against us this year. Like completely anonymous. All of that is forgotten if he turns up on Saturday.
