  1. Swap Leeds for Fairbank North Stars - play until June in UK, Alaska is ready for SL
  2. With costs excl wages frozen no self respecting SL club owner should have any problems dealing with 3/6 months of cash issues, if they have they shouldn't be in SL
  3. Joe Stalin was a great fan of RL, having played a few games for Tyldesley in 1896 when spending time in Manchester www.tyldesleyhistory.co.uk/stalin
  4. Avignon Catalans Toulouse Toronto Ottawa Hull Leeds Liverpool Manchester New Jersey Cardiff London Dublin Edinburgh
  5. At this point I believe Leigh were down to 11 players or even 10?
  6. Stopped training 22nd, as per government advice. Dereks personal opinion earlier in the thread is his and not on the clubs SM sites at all but when did he post it as things moved quickly this past week after the previous weekends stupidity, with many changing opinion We are in unprecedented waters, stay safe and look forward to meeting all of you again soon
  7. Time to be radical and start maximizing the sport. Two divisions of 10 for SL next year. TO, Leigh, Fev, Bulls, Newcastle, Widnes to Join the 12 then be brave with Ottawa and Avignon - 3 years no relegation to the PT leagues provided playing and economic standards are met, 1 up/down between SL1/2 with a play off similar to mid 8's between 2nd bottom SL1 and 2-4 SL2 winner is in SL1
  8. Love to see 3 non fed max within the next few years, put a flag in the ground now to work to, we need to give more a career opportunity if we are to win at Intl level.
  9. First saw him pre season against us a number of years ago scored a couple, and I hoped we would go for him as I am sure he only had a PT contract at the time. Went to Swinton on loan or DR I believe. Really like this lad, just gets the job done with bags of pace - hope he does pull on the shirt at some point as pace is needed out wide but my 2 would be Makinson and Johnstone for the tests
  10. Hopefully gets 25, Woods and Reynolds works far better Absolutely shocking ref though who gave many fans some great reasons to start knitting on match days rather than put cash into the sport
  11. If its look after your own time then that's 2 areas, as why should Lancs and Yorks give a hoot about Cumbria/Expansion in a PT structure? So we get shut of Newcastle, Workie, Haven and Barrow plus any future expansion clubs will have to be straight into SL ie New York/Ottawa etc with Hemel, Both Wales and Coventry binned to local leagues. Should end up with a decent PT comp with 500 gates across Yorks and Lancs
  12. looks like both sides rested/didn't take risks with players - Leigh without McNally, Scott, Woods, Bienek, and Mason from the York game with Sammut pulling out on the day. Crowd 1600 - wont be much left after costs of LSV
  13. Fevs relationship with Leeds is far more than Leeds making a few players available on game day - this to me is the problem.
  14. Last night we had Ridyard, Sammut, Ioane, Bienek, Ince, Brooks, Field, Mullen, Thornley, Forsythe and Holdroyd not involved. Recruitment has gone well pre season and the team has gelled quickly showing great comradery last night. Will be a great comp this year without TW
  15. I would also guess at 70% possession, forcing numerous drop outs and on the back of a one sided penalty count - Leighs defence was outstanding
  16. You will be surprised how little we have spent. We had a fair bit left over last season after budgets were set at 1800 gates, actual 3000+ which meant we only released season tickets a week before Xmas. We will have a couple of Big names in come play offs should we get there, we will certainly be giving it our best shot this season. We withstood huge spells on our line tonight against a Dewsbury team who had very high completion and possession but lacked a bit of pace in the halves imo. Your team looks solid and gets stuck in but you need some Zip to rack the points up
  17. Up to now the City's have benefitted - Manchester certainly has - it seems the surrounding Towns are next and our new Tory MP will certainly help the RLWC and Leigh of that I am certain. They have something to lose now
  18. Reet lads for the Bowtun test get the'selves up Leyth its £2 a pint, £2.70 fort Guiness and imported Lagers
  19. I am sure someone regularly ridiculed me about Jarrad Hayne almost signing for Leigh https://www.totalrl.com/the-world-class-players-who-almost-came-to-super-league/
  20. A realignment to current reality via 2x 10 would mean clubs invited into the set up for the good of the sport and the opportunities before it as a result of TW
  21. Andy must be off his trolley. He doesn't have the wealth of a Beaumont and supports Leigh. At least Swinton had a huge family tie with his Uncle Bill. Positives - Rochdale play in Rochdale and have Mayfield to work with.
  22. Try a bloke called Daniel at not just travel https://danieldobranski.notjusttravel.com/ He sets up trips to suit fans, from extended tours taking in Niagra falls etc to 3 day RL trips. Very experienced and a great bloke who I am sure would visit your club and listen to what fans want then tailor the package
  23. Vancouver is a balmy 12C that time of year, should be growing/promoting in Canada
