  1. Depends if you have premier sports or not
  2. Agree totally.Probably the biggest game of the season at home and it's on a monday night.Whats more important to the RL ? TV coverage or the fans who go to the games week in or week out. I think York will play a lot of monday games which makes my season ticket a waste of time now
  3. I am sure he got covid earlier in the season and maybe in my opinion that is why he didn't play as much or be quite as sharp as he was.From experience I know how it can knock hell out of you.Maybe he has decided to hang up his boots now. I can't see anymore of last seasons squad signing now except Cuthbertson if we can't get the prop forward that Fordy wants.
  4. I think the only 2 we will get are Porter and Cuthbertson, but only if they are match fit.We can't take a gamble on players not been fit for the start of the season
  5. Really sad to see Jason going. He was the type of player every team needs. Good luck in the future Jason
  6. We might use Ellis as a loose forward if you think we might have another three quarter lined up.We need Jason Bass to sign as a utility back now
  7. That's a shame.I saw a lot of potential in him and thought another season with him in the team would be a big positive for both parties
  8. Can I ask how you know Nikou is leaving us. He would be a good asset to the team
  9. Another announcement tonight. I'd like to think Danny is having another season. His experience would be great to have next season
  10. Can't see Butterworth been more than just a squad player really because of his army commitment. Looking at the players that haven't been announced from last seasons squad I can't see many more signing now. Nikau,Bass would be good to have back in the squad again. O'Hanlan if fully fit would be a good addition aswell as Porter.I think Brinning will probably call it a day now . I think we will use d/r for the rest of the squad maybe from hull kr
  11. I heard he was going back to london. Don't know if it's true. I would like him to stop.
  12. I wonder if it's a winger this time.Its time for a few more backs to be added to the squad. Maybe another winger. I still think we are short of players in that area
  13. Big George Ballantyne in our 1980/81 squad. He was on loan to us the back part of that season from Cas.He was massive and only came on the last quarter of every game as a prop.He scored a few tries for us by just walking and belly flopping over the try line from a couple of metres out,nobody got in his way.His shirt never fitted him and finished at his belly button. I saw him a few seasons later playing for Bramley against us and he had lost loads of weight.
  14. Geoff never played for Great Britain. He played for Yorkshire when they played Lancashire.Yorkshire won and I aren't sure if he didn't score a hat trick of tries
  15. I think Dow-Nikau and Bass will sign again.O'Hagan is too much of a gamble with been injury prone.Cuthbertson is on the coaching staff anyway so he might be used as a squad member,but he was not what we had expected last season. We have signed a good selection of players so far but we are a fair way from having the squad needed for competing with the top teams of last season.
  16. Brian McDermott has been mentioned for the position
  17. I think overall we need to learn lessons from last season.We need the balance of youth and experience. I take what Coolie says with a pinch of salt,but he is probably right that last years squad with the ex super league players in it would have been on good contract plus paying out extra for a lot of loan players. The way the squad is been pieced together so far I think they are been alot more cautious about having a squad of ex super league and focusing more on championship experience.I think we need to see who is retained really,but we will need experienced players to keep us in with a chance of a top 6 place
  18. I heard that Dixon was going back to London.I don't know how true that is but I would like him to stay
  19. Its is no big secret that we have been after Will Oakes.I wonder if he is the next signing. I would like to see more about who we have retained for next season. Not many names banded about from other clubs right now saying if they have signed any knights players.I wonder if we are keeping the majority of last years squad that haven't already left.
  20. I think he did.I am sure he played centre for us on dual reg
  21. Fordy might consider using Nikau in the second row next season as an extra option in the forwards
  22. Who would we D/R with? I would imagine it would be Hull KR. I am not a fan of it and to be honest I don't think it is something that has particularly worked well for us
  23. I wonder if it is an existing squad member been announced tonight I wonder if Kris Brining will have another season or call it a day after all his injury problems. Another hooker would be a good idea with a bit of super league and championship experience . It looks like London Broncos are losing a few players with going part time.I wonder if any are coming our way.Batley signed a good player yesterday who would have been good for us
