    Of course that is what sport is all about. A club being promoted into a league for which they don't have the infrastructure or support is not the same as sport though, is it?

    Well it is sport, albeit somewhat unequal.ย

    Some fans call it ambition; others see it as self-harm.

    I'm on't ambition side. Sport is about competing, aiming to be the best. If you don't have the aim to win, why compete in't first place? ๐Ÿค”

  3. Well there's two ways of looking at yesterday's game. From a Fax point of view you could say we were on't wrong side of Mr Grant, again. Likewise you could say we came up short, just, against a very well organised Fev team. As has been said the Fax no try, followed immediately by a Fev score, was a turning point but also throwing the ball straight to your opponent dosen't help either. There wasn't a lot in it and I thought Fev's defence swung it for Rovers. But the result aside it was great to be back at The Shay, hopefully next time we can be joined by away fans and have our usual pre/post match wander with our mates from Fev. ๐Ÿบ ๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท Ossett White Rat 4.0% Mmm!

    Absolutely..... I read how refs hate us.... are bent.... are always against us etc....

    We got the rub of the green today. another day we won't do. That's how it rolls.

    Great defensive effort today with hugely improved discipline. Tbh.... not a classic but perhaps the best win so far this season.

    Out of interest, what's to stop anyone who wants to go to the game simply buying one from the Fax website, now they're on general sale?ย 

    You just show the gateman your hand. If you've got six fingers you're either from Featherstone or Todmorden and as such you're buggered. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโ—

    I think either Halifax or Calderdale council could find themselves skating on thin ice, if anymore Halifax home games allow away supporters during current co-vid restrictions.


    Why? ๐Ÿค”

    all i go off is facts.

    last 2 games points scored 4/ย  points against 104

    points scored in 6 games 82 lowest in the league

    points against 222 highest in the league.

    so what will you all say if we get battered by york.

    i pray to god that we wont but something drastic as to be done to stop this.


    Dosen't say a lot for Fax thenโ—๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

  9. I recall fans from a few clubs descending on the hotel at Ainley Top to gently voice their displeasure I'm sure. The way the powers that be have treated certain clubs over the years is nowt short of disgraceful, I would sayย even illegal. ๐Ÿคฌ

  10. I've been reading on't Thunder website about the return of fans for the Halifax game. There is no information regarding away fans. Does anyone have any infoย on this or am I going to have to put a funny accent on? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    I'm at a loss please tell me what has sheffield not wanting to swap to monday got to do with a game on sunday being postponed due to covid

    Nowt. Sheffield refused weeks ago to move the Fax game 24 hours to allow fans in. The alleged virus situation causing Sunday's postponement arose this week. ๐Ÿ™„

    You should be backing your coach in these indifferent times , its also up to your so called high profile player's to perform๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    I think SG has been backed to the hilt. Your second point regarding the players though is spot on. Fax have assembled a first 17 that look as good as most in the Championship. It is up to Grix to gel them into a team capable of, at the very least, a play-off spot. Rams 14v28 Fax. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

  13. It all depends on which Fax turns up. At times so far this year we have been absolutely awful or almost unplayable, against Toulouse we were both in the same game! So as for predictions, I haven't a clue! ๐Ÿ˜‚ One certainty though is I'll miss the trip to Stalybridge, one of my favourite days out. ๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿบโ—

  14. I haven't seen Dewsbury this time yet but if you're half decent you will take the two points. How Fax managed to conjourย up a loss to the bulls last Sunday is still beyond me, we had nowt to beat and still couldn't get the win. Come on the Rams! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  15. There s some good points being made here and I agree with the comparisons between football and todays rugby league made by JPL. I've followed the gameย for nigh on 60 years and whilst it is a better game than the old unlimited tackles version undoubtedly, the Super League set up of today is not what I think of as Rugby League. As a fan of a championship club I feel that were almost playing a different game to SL and feel little or no affinity to parts of our sport such as the international game, the Challenge Cup or Sky Sports coverage. Sad but true. ๐Ÿ˜•
