  1. Leeds have refused the first official put forward and asked why they cant just pick their own like normal.
  2. So you were one of the 1200? I have lots of time for the fans who stick in the tough years, there was a bloke with a 10-5 flag I used to chat to at both grounds around that time
  3. You gotta love the new HKR fans who forget they couldn’t draw 1500 in early 2000’s, yet they have all been lifelongers
  4. You won’t get a look in mate and it would get worse if it’s close
  5. This is the law, apparently: To be onside at a kick, an active player not in possession of the ball, must be behind the player who kicks the ball. If you are in front of the kicker, make sure you don't get involved with open play. You can do this by raising your arms and running back to an onside position. This shows the referee you have no intention of joining play because you know you're offside. However, if you make no attempt to move back to an onside position as play continues, the referee will award a penalty to the opposition.'' My understanding is that the players to the kickers right moved forward and were within the 10m when Crooks knocked it back (he was onside), still in front of the kicker. As they say its chip paper tonight but I understand the Hood try was disallowed as he was in front of the kicker although the KR player knocked it back to him
  6. That’s the rule but that is irrelevant when Leigh are the team on the wrong end. Crooks was on the player who knocked on wasn’t, same for Leigh’s disallowed try Challenger on but Hood off.
  7. So offside players being within 10m of the ball is no longer an offside after the ball has been touched, if so why was hoods chalked off?
  8. Is the 10m rule unless the kicker plays you onside still a rule? I also dont think the prop got the ball down for another KR try. Great effort again from a team that had to sign 3 loans during the week to get 17 out and then lost our biggest prop in warm up. Brierley and Elliot back, the 2 aussie forwards plus Ashworth and we can win a couple this year
  9. Yes he should, the ability to find the 6/7 quality players was the issue due to covid. We are in a great spot financially though having not taken any loans, Dexy hasn't had to tip in for 5 years and well over 500k in the clubs cash account as today.
  10. They aren’t, Sky would want LSV in super league due to facilities to broadcast from and atmosphere. they also want characters and Derek is certainly one of those as his the new multi millionaire new guy. They want Leigh to do a Leicester which without salary restrictions may well be possible before 2025. Listening to a cow bell in an empty stadium is not what Sky want, no matter how brilliant for the game Ken Davy is
  11. Keep chucking you will get one right at some point - 2 up and no relegation is 14 teams, unequal funding will make it tough for Fev especially without a benefactor. I expect Leigh and TO to spend big, I expect Salford and Wakey to be desperate for every penny - 4 of those 5 will not be in the 10 for 2023
  12. Not SL standard though, honest and the best in the championship but not up to SL anymore. They will need a complete pack.
  13. www.sky.com/superleague/restructure Have TO a forward under 30!!!
  14. 14 Clubs will mean others destined for the Championship will be in SL also. Fev and TO are fekked
  15. Can we have Tommy Makinson BACK please, that should be Harry. That half who was rumoured to be going to Salford will do well for us
  16. Had it on very good authority that we have 14 players available to select from as of yesterday. Each will draw a position from a hat and the 3 other bench spots will not even warm up
  17. Leigh have a young pack so far for 2022 SL Tomkins will be the experience needed to get the right mix.
  18. In general if you go down the VC direction they want at least 51% of the business so they control exit. what’s difficult is how to value SL, and what was crazy was the deal put forward last time which almost guaranteed their money back in a relative short time if someone offered 100m for 20% then it’s worth a serious look
  19. My penny says Croft joins the revolution at LSV
  20. What is factual is that Sky have us by the danglies and have given us a two year stay of execution to improve the product/perception imo it starts with camera work, atmosphere mic’s and commentators on Sky it moves onto referees players and coaches to encourage the spectacle and stop the professional stuff it moves onto clubs to sell out games and bring in the £ needed from sponsors etc 2022 is the transition year and Leigh/Fev/TO will get less funding than others and below SL will get scraps 2023 we must have our best 10 clubs filling grounds and creating a great spectacle for Sky 2023 we must have a Ft second tier creating pressure on the elite by being a viable replacement through P&R get rid of the cap as it stops wealthy individuals getting involved, individuals who will throw in millions for success, a mindset most RL fans do not understand
  21. I am sure you will be aware Tommy that LSV didn’t cost the council a penny. Leases and land were traded for development of a college, a clubhouse and pitches, a stadium LSV and a state of the art facility for Leigh harriers - which helped to produce Keely Hodgkinson who won silver in the 800m earlier this week in Japan. The developer got to build a hotel a supermarket and a pub, plus new houses
  22. A Leigh sponsor is sorting him a job and he has taken a role on the towns U15/16 academy
  23. For those missing out the return of the reserves may result in some of the 19 yo's deemed not good enough to get a second chance elsewhere
