Have decided against going. Strong wind and drenching rain have breached the lead flashing where the garage roof joins the house. I've got a bucket in the hallway to catch the drips from the ceiling. Plenty of work in Bradford for my roofer friend Paul next week.

2500 at ernest for Toulouse decent turnout. But looks tiny at 19k stadium. Hard to really know what crowds be at superleague. 

Maybe 5 to 6k 

I’d say less, especially if they were struggling near the bottom of the table. Avignon might be a better bet for a viable SL team, in terms of potential crowds anyway.

Bootham Crescent pitch inspection and safety review at 10.30 for York v Bradford. Can't see it going ahead. The wind and rain in York is dreadful.

No doubt a avignon could be big as if not bigger than Catalans. My 2 cents worth on it I believe they need to look at taking busloads from albi which is league mad and up the road to some degree.

Fev v Fax, inspection at 12 noon to see if it goes ahead.

Cheers, was looking forward to a bit of championship rugby, I expect its likely to be called off looking at the forecast.

I am not hopeful the game will go ahead. If it does I might need my big coat on for this one!

You've already got a head of yourself Winny, Toulouse have not got there yet.

FWIW I think that their on the road games here across the channel are going to be a lot more competitive from those teams at the top of the division, they all seem to have improoved in their rosters from last season, yes even Toulouse but the other teams will not have all the travelling inconvenience to comply with.

What chance of any games going ahead today? 

Has it is in Leigh at the moment not much chance at all, glad it was yesterday now, albeit when it was announced being Saturday I wasn't to pleased, Saturday doesn't seem conducive to attracting the numbers Sunday does these days. 

Just in case anyone is wondering why it was a Saturday, it was because Manchester United Women's team have a scheduled game v Chelsea at the LSV which is MUW's home ground, I guess they pay more than Leigh Centurions for the privaledge, albeit I still don't think they should have the preference.

If anyone hasn’t seen Joe Bretherton’s try yesterday, it’s worth checking out 

 

 

Yep saw that in the highlights. It looked like he actually played on the wing & scored a hat trick.

No doubt they'll be whingeing about Leigh wrecking the pitch.


Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

Broncos (v Haven) still seem confident.

Widnes v Batley still on at the moment too, although the pre-match kids' tournament is off.

Me thinks that will come in the future, sometime, it's probably a good job the weather was not to bad yesterday or it may have come much sooner like today, all the world revolves around the round ball game, doesn't it?
