  1. Confident of another 2 points on the road. I saw a bit of Skolars last match against NW Crusaders on Youtube & tbh they looked p**s poor. But I'm sure Stu will make sure the lads are professional in all they do, get this one out of the way & then preparations will begin for Doncaster at home.
  2. Anita, what would they say in the Hornets Nest, hearing you whisper these words ???????
  3. George was at the recent match against Rochdale Hornets with his dad.
  4. Ah yes, silly of me, point proven
  5. Good summing up RR. I was a bit disappointed with the website match report this week. We all know what a good win that was, always is in Cumbria. But the website didn't really reflect the excitement we all felt on the way home. It's our club website, it should have been full of it. Poor Joe Hartley can't have been too impressed, scored the two tries that won us the game & his first mention was of a knock-on he made that led to an early try for Town! I'm guessing Roger isn't writing the reports anymore, hope all is well .
  6. Your obsession with refs is boring. No ref, no game remember. The outcome of Sunday's game will depend on how we play and how Dewsbury play, not how the man in the middle officiates.
  7. Will we be graced by your presence Anita?
  8. We've now got more props than we know what to do with, 6 I make it Nelmesey, Blagborough, Meadows, Newton, Hirst & Wilson
  9. If every stay away friend comes along they'll be queuing all the way to Hollins Road!
  10. Anyone else watched on the tele & heard Robbie Paul call the pitch an 'island'! You must stay on the island he said when someone got pushed into touch. Thought I was hearing things. Hope the lad who went in touch didn't get his feet wet!
  11. Quick message to Hornets fans planning to come to Oldham on Friday evening - a bigger than usual crowd is expected due to Oldham's recent takeover, so do try and arrive early to guarantee entry. Cheers.
  12. How about Good Luck Chris!
  13. Tandle, only you could crack what was, in fairness, quite a funny joke about Hornets, and still manage to get on everyone's t*ts Besides, North Wales Crusaders will definitely not finish in the bottom two.
  14. Excuse my ignorance, not sure who Gary is?
  15. As you rightly stated recently we need another prop in the squad. So if these lads impressed in the session we had with them, then why not?
  16. The relevance of that being??

    B*gg*r off Cliff, I was enjoying my evening until I read that
  18. Loads in Australia, 'Cement' Gillespie, 'Blocker' Roach, 'Bert' Kenny, 'ET' Ettingshausen & loads more. My favourite Glen Lazarus 'The Brick with Eyes'. And Terry Lamb 'Legga'. In UK, Rob Roberts 'Two Bobs'.
  19. Well done Saints, terrific stuff. Am I mistaken or was that Kristian Woolf sat next to Wellens. If Saints invited Kristian to join them for the day, what a master-stroke that was. How ironic, after his drop-goal winner at the Emirates, that Crichton should be the one to make the crucial error in golden point time. And Jerome Leulia, so brilliant in the WC, was completely anonymous here. I knew Welsby was world class, but I thought Percival, Dodd and Sironen were magnificent too. Hope that some of the Saints stars put their hands up for England going forward, starting with the France game in April. A magnificent day for British Rugby League and the Super League. Well done to all concerned.
  20. Good memory AoHaF. Though I thought it was less than 10 minutes from time. In terms of forgiving Mr Holdsworth, he can't possibly have known for sure because it was tight, inconclusive on TV as you say. And there was no get-out of a video ref of course. He had to make a decision on the spot. Just so damn frustrating it went against us. Of course had it been a normal league match, it would have been long forgotten. We all remember it because it meant so much to us. I've heard it said that if Offiah had scored it, rather than Lordy, he probably would have given it. Perhaps Paul wasn't well enough known within the game, but we know how quick he was, especially over a short distance. Anyway, it happened and it doesn't take away the fact that Mr Holdsworth was an excellent referee, well respected by players as many have paid tribute to him on social media. RIP John Holdsworth
  21. Heard today of the sad passing of ex ref John Holdsworth. Yes of course we all remember the semi-final, but came as a shock when I heard. RIP John.
  22. Interesting choices in Littler's leadership group announced today - Ridyard, Whittel & McNally were obvious choices but Meadows and Morgan less so. Good on them , hope it all works out well.
  23. Yes, I for one am very interested and looking forward to the match very much.
