23-24 Feb: The Betfred League 1 Match Thread

Recommended Posts

Loving the League 1 Table after 2 rounds.

I'm due to meet up with some former colleagues from my days in the Midlands for Bears v Town on 17th March. They've been to this fixture before but aren't otherwise RL fans.

From a purely selfish - helping me keep in contact with friends point of view - it'd be great if this was the end of season position with Town up and Bears following us into the Championship.

So Go Town and Go Bears (except on the 17th March and 16th June. Feel free to have an off day for those two fixtures).

From Twitter...7 former and current Broncos in today's Coventry winning team: Sam, James, Rob, Kam PP, Ollie, Ben Gray & Jacob Jones...

Kudos to the Broncos academy production line - really pleasing to see southern players who are staying in the game even if they don’t quite make it with the Broncos.

A mate was at the game and said he counted 123 people in the stand so it seems the real attendance is a lot less than 360. A real shame, the people of Coventry should be getting behind their team!

Wow I bet he’s a right bundle of laughs.

Think he might be a figment of someone's imagination...... 

I love that he aparently walked the length of the whole main stand and accurately counted 123 people. Instead of using the turnstiles the Bears will need to consider using him from now on to work out their attendances.

Disappointed to lose the game yesterday, but, we'll pick ourselves up and go again.

Stand off Jordan Howden picked up a rather nasty looking injury, when he collided with the knee of a Hunslet player in the tackle.

Posted as a link, as theres a fair bit of blood in them.

Coventry beat Newcastle in what must be one of the biggest shocks in recent rugby league history!

Newcastle don’t seem like they want to defend at all, hopeless v Doncaster and even worse today. 

SO you weren't at the game but feel able to comment on Newcastle's defence and the Bears attendance - unreal

Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

So is the definition of a fantastic Dual Reg agreement one where it is not used at all as has been the case for rounds 1 and 2?

Here's the Bears tries from yesterday. The final try is a beauty (lovely skills from Nathan Conroy). Alot of noise from crowd even though there was aparently only 123 in attendance ?

Great result for the Bears. Also good to see WWR competing much better this year. Hopefully they can get a couple of wins to show for their efforts soon.

  I didn't pass comment - just posted the link as it was erroneously stated,earlier in the thread,that Thunder did not have a dual reg.

I don't have any thoughts on that,where the dual reg is with one club,or the situation with Coventry,where they now dual reg with 2 clubs,Broncos and York.

 I'm more interested in West Wales Raiders moulding their new players,added to the squad,into a winning side.

 I am guided by my friends at York City Knights who went to the time and trouble to remind me,what I already knew,that it is all in the rules/guidelines with regard to dual reg.

   Let the season get interesting and more exciting...


     No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Sorry for any misunderstanding, I was commenting on what the Thunder's definition of a 'fantastic dual reg' agreement was not yours. Jordan Robinson was quoted in the article you linked saying "We’ve got a fantastic dual-registration agreement with Wakefield and we’re going to utilise it" yet so far that utilisation has been to have Zero dual reg players in the first 2 rounds.

Maybe he just went “1,2,3...” and gave up.

Didn't Connor Robinson play for the Bears in 2015 (possibly on loan from Hull KR), or are there two CRs?

Yes he did. He still holds the Bears record (jointly with Ben Stead) for most goals in a game of 8
