  1. Yes a very good signing for the championship. Fair enough he’s dropped off a bit but he still scored warrington’s only try in a grand final a few years ago. Hopefully three genuine halfs in the Bradford ranks next year.
  2. Yes unnecessary from Brown and I think he might find himself staying at home rather than playing in Toulouse. That could have been costly for Batley had the ref spotted it and could have undone all of Batley’s deserved hard work. Im saving the recording to watch back later when I’m ready to stomach the passenger speed Bradford attack. A shame to end the Bradford season on 4 losses in a row but playoffs was the aim and that was achieved. Good luck Batley and I hope you get a good game out in France and keep the score line more respectable than we would have.
  3. Well done Batley. Well worth the victory. I’ve said a few times but Bradford were just happy to make the playoffs which is a shame as we have ended our season with a whimper but good luck Batley. See you again next year
  4. Looks like I was right with this. Congratulations Batley. The best team won on the day. Good luck in the next round and we will see you again next year
  5. I’d say batley and I’d make them favourites too. Bradford are in horrible form and I’ve said for a while they are happy to have made the playoffs and mentally checked out. Plus home advantage should see Batley home as winners
  6. After watching Bradford play (or attempt to play) Toulouse recently I can say Toulouse are basically the best championship side i have seen. The attack is flowing and sharp but the defence is just so impressive and they rarely look stretched. They 100% deserve their shot at super league and I think they will worry the Salford, Wakefield etc (no offence to them) But the job isn’t done and they have to win the playoffs where Featherstone will want to take that spot
  7. Based on the current form and result this seems the most likely. I’m not sure on the Halifax Batley result but I could very easily see Whitehaven winning and they would deserve their place in the playoffs
  8. Halifax play Batley so they can’t both lose this weekend. Bradford look like they are happy to have made the playoffs so I expect a haven win next week as one team is bang in form and up for the fight and the other is in rest mode. I’ve seen comments about how exciting the Widnes v Bradford game was and yes the atmosphere was good with the game in the balance but make no mistake it was a game with over 30 errors between the sides. It was only exciting as both sides couldn’t keep hold of the footy or threw it forward. If either team could have respected the ball they would likely have put 30-40 points on the other
  9. Agree with Gazza there. Standard talk to big up signings although I do think Jordan is a fantastic keep for us. Plus of course he will peddle the super league line. The club constantly say this to assist marketing and engaging fans that we are aspiring for super league. Most of us fans are much more realistic though. I remember Gledhill posting stories about an amazing signing and how fans would be very impressed as we’d really opened the cheque book… up rocks Richie Mathers out of retirement!! PS - I like the comment ‘never rated Lilley’ now he’s confirmed to be staying at Bradford. Much like our section of supporters who think Pickersgill is not good enough now he’s very likely off to you haha
  10. I thought you guys had a thread on Brandon Pickersgill but I can’t seem to find it. Maybe I dreamt it. Either way, he picked up a very bad looking injury yesterday vs Toulouse. Looked to be his spine/back. He Looked devastated on the floor and was taken off by stretcher and went straight to hospital.
  11. Brilliant game of rugby league to watch (although I’m clearly biased). I wish Bradford would stop inviting teams back into games from silly errors but still a great performance and result for Bradford. Sorry to say, as nice as the rivalry is, it’s nicer to do the double over you although good luck for the rest of the season. Bradford have had injuries problems all year but are getting players back at the right time. Brough is still so classy even at his age. PS - Always like trips to York as a city and enjoyed the trip again today. Very smart stadium and would love if Bradford could copy and print the same over into odsal but I think I’ll be standing a few decades longer waiting for that.
  12. I’d ask for my money back… sorry if that’s too negative
  13. Looking forward to this one as it will be a cracking game. Not confident as a bulls fan but I’ll be there to tick another stadia off my list. ive got my tape measure out of the cupboard too
  14. On the subject of ‘would a new stadium pull fans to bradford’ interesting one. I think there would be a ‘small’ increase in fans taking advantage of nicer comfier facilities. More families or young children would be able to go if they could sit or at least be under cover! Bradford would need super league before they saw any real large increase in attendance although the 3-4K average in league 1 and the championship is not far off the bottom of super league attendances which is the real shame.
  15. Yes and then they announce the game vs Bradford on Sunday has a limited 2k capacity and only one stand will be open. Im not sure what has gone wrong but the new shiny facility doesn’t serve its purpose at the moment
