I agree in most of what you say,but surely it would be better to beat Swinton so we go into Rochdale game on back of a win. I agree with the halfback,give Oscar Thomas a go can’t be any worse from what we are seeing.

It's also winning pay that won't be covered by the gate,I'd be more tempted to give a bonus for beating Rochdale ,and do the same for Rochdale away,Barrow home...we need to get hungry again

Need to win this and need to win it badly. Forget the dizzy heights  of Wembley .The team needs to get back to the mentality they had at fev and widnes.  Win this and we get a lift for Barrow and Rochdale.

Completely agree ... losing is a habit .. we have forgotten how to win !  So I don't care if its a pointless trophy we just need to win .. to build a bit of confidence and momentum for the Rochdale game! .... winning is a habit too!

I think Oscar Thomas has gone to Rochdale .... shame he could have done a job for us!  Don't understand though why Swinton would loan him to Rochdale or us, for that matter, when we are all fighting for survival!

Apologies it's pay for adult season tickets and free for junior season tickets

If I can prove I was at Swinton this Sunday can I get in for free?  Only seems fair after what we had to got through (again)...

He was 18th man on Sunday.

Widnes away - I don't think that I will be buying any Wembley tickets after all.

This tournament had got a Leigh-Widnes final written all over it.

Would be great if one of the so called smaller clubs could spoil the final.

If we can't do it, which is highly likely, would love the final between Bulldogs - Eagles to spoil the wishes of the RFL.

As it seems there will be no Wembley appearance for us this year, I would like to see York get there.

I remember a certain ex pro saying exactly the same thing in 2010 after the draw for the semi-final of the NRC.

Let's hope history repeats itself.

It would be nice for those clubs who have never played at Wembley before to get there, providing memories for their fans into their dotage.

Indeed. Dewsbury are fortunate in having many of their current supporters who watched them the last time they played there still on the terraces.

i had a game of touch and pass in the car park while waiting for the coach in 1979. Does that count?
