Favourite Other Team

Recommended Posts

I assume the vast majority of posters are fans of one team, but do any of you have a second team who you look out for or even go and watch, and if so why?

I’m a Saints fan but Widnes are my second team as they were the closest team to where I grew up (about 2 miles nearer than St Helens). That said in the unlikely event of us playing them any time soon I’ll be Saints all the way.

Toulouse Olympique for me.

I fell in love with French Rugby League in 1989 when I played in the curtain raiser to the France Great Britain test in Avignon.  We got battered in the match but everything about the trip was unbelievable and as a young lad from Wigan the idea that the French loved the same game was wonderful and seeing all of the bars dedicated to Rugby League was so exotic.

Over the next 20 years I want to spend as much of my time in that part of the world as possible and I really want it to live up to its potential as a Rugby League powerhouse and the more success for their teams the better for me.

Fev (because of locality and my family)

and Leeds (because of my association with the city)

So the recent arrangements between the clubs have worked out pretty well for me as i get to watch them both at the same time 😀

Cas are my 1st team, York my 2nd but I moved over here and have been to most York home and away games since 2016.

On the other hand I hardly get chance to get to across to see Cas now.

Otherwise have a soft spot for Coventry and North Wales. And after my 2 visits up there this season I have a lot of time for Barrow.

Salford.  A few Wigan players I liked went there when I first watched the sport - Gregory, Panapa, Offiah so developed a soft spot for them.  Weirdly I kind of admired them for ending Wigan’s challenge cup run.  But obviously I hope Wigan batter them Friday...

Who would you support if York go up and they play Cas next season?

Whoever is playing Leeds.

 

Obviously, we are rubbish now, but I loved the genuine rivalry involving big crowds and proper bragging rights.

Aww...cheers!

York for me because my first RL games were at Clarence Street. Oldham are the team that have most impressed me in games against Coventry Bears. Rhinos because of family Leeds connection.
