    The lesson to be learned from 2018 , is that any player who walks out onto a RL pitch thinking they have already won needs to look at themselves in the mirror , we messed up at the start and then only lost to Toronto narrowly at the Bash till the play offs 

    But that's all the past , no point trying to live in it , just learn from it  

    Why you have to take the bait, is beyond me.

    I hope Cornwall is a huge success, but wouldn’t 2023 have been a better year to start so they could get everything sorted instead of having to rush around now ?. 

    To play requires players.Simple. Who is signed up? The clock is ticking.

    Like what? Shane Eccles was and is the academy coach, following on from what Darrell Goulding had done before he became head of youth. All Clubb ever did was help Eccles so that he could get a little experience. 

    Wigan have always been very good at creating roles for those who can add something to the setup.

    You may!

    I have worked with some of those behind the club on another Rugby League-related project in Cornwall. I can attest to their determination to make this succeed, and confirm that it is in very safe hands.

    Whatever little snippets of up-to-date information I have is not for me to report. There is, as I understand it, a lot of dotting i's and crossing t's going on, and it is only right that those doing the dotting and crossing spread the news when ready.

    My personal involvement has nothing to do with the administration of Cornwall RLFC (it is 'passionate and peripheral', for want of better terms!)

    What is your occupation? Marketing?  Call center? What work did you perform behind the scenes?

     I wish there was a Leigh Centurions sub - forum so the consistent,incorrect, rumours about Leigh Centurions could be placed on that forum - leaving this one free for information about other things.😊

    Still,reading about how #SuperLeague Ready the club was,last season,how the best stadium,best owner,best players,best coaches,staff and supporters are ready for 2022 must finally end the victimhood once and for all.

    It was entertaining....away from the field.

    I shall endeavour to read tomorrows misinformation elsewhere.It is too irresistable... 

    It got us £500k more.. Who is laughing now?

    Fans of any other club:

    He's obviously getting paid loads and is there for the money


    Fans of the club in question:

    He's there for the challenge and not there for the money, we are actually paying him next to nothing 

    We can have any quota amounts in Championship. Bring it on..😂😂

    Player trials are due to take place in December so will be interesting to see what comes out of that. Hopefully there’s a lot of work going on behind the scenes regarding recruitment and announcements imminent as lots of players are getting tied up

    We don’t trial anymore. You scout.

    The thought that lads can just turn up for trials and then play against seasoned professionals in League 1 is laughable. They might find a few players, not a whole squad. 

    Even locals who have  played to a good standard in rugby Union will struggle. This is all coming across very naive and rushed. 

    Yes the old chestnut.. We can play League cos we have played Union..👍

    Injury prone

    Makes daft mistakes.

    Poison in the dressing room.

    Personal issues

    He'll be sent off every week.

    Not fit.

    Never be the same after injury.

    Going for a SL gig.

    Have I missed any from the "championship club signs a good player" response list?

    I must admit the SL is looking boring..

    Watching him as a Dragons fan I found him a bit of a frustrating enigma . He’s a physical presence , could finish a chance and do some good things but he also made more than his fair share of basic errors and got caught out in defence , usually racing in field . Since then injury and off field stuff have seen him not being seen much in the NRL . For the championship though that’s a solid acquisition 

    Langi for me carries the same characteristics. Above his weight but never uses it.

    The broadcasters usually 'front load' their early season schedule with teams they consider least likely to be involved in the big games at the end of the season or the relegation battle so they can focus on broadcasting those teams games later in the year.

    Yes, very true. A provisional schedule. Should Leeds lose their first six matches, next best would step in.
