Dewsbury should let their Members into the Bradford v Fev game free.

That's very unfair on the Dewsbury members.

Widnes 2 London 0 after 11 minutes (KO delayed by 10 mins due to queuing at the ticket office). London very much on top so far, strong wind behind them in the first half.

Widnes 2 London 22 after 32 minutes. Broncos absolutely dominant so far. They've run the ball on the sixth tackle pretty much every time - wise move given the wind behind them.

Dissapointing attendance at Leigh, but as an observation there looked more on than last week v Sheffield and that returned 3500, hmph.

Very dominant Leigh performance, as I have said before big strong and mobile, the signs are looking very good on the offensive for when this team gets to know each other better on the field, as far as the defence is concerned not bad 20 points conceded in 3 games and today's nilling of a York team who I consider will be a top 5 team this term.

Quite right. Much better game than I was expecting. The pitch held up pretty well.

Featherstone deserved to win because they were more adventurous but we've not disgraced ourselves against two good teams in London and Fev. We need to work on our offload game.

And Dewsbury is definitely colder than Odsal.

Me to Gubby, I have only commented on what I have seen before me, not been so bold as to make any predictions, but we as supporters are in an interesting place at the moment, looking forward to watching it all unfurl.

PS, as I said in an earlier post re the 2900 given as the attendance today, was I mistaken or did it look more to you than last week?

London were pretty impressive tbh.

Played the conditions very well in the first half and literally bullied us,

We never moved forward when defending and were woeful defending our line.

London scored five tries in the first half, the total distance covered with ball in hand to score four of them must have been about ten yards.

The fifth was our customary interception gift to Kieran Dixon.

Second half with the wind behind us was more of a contest but we still managed to chuck a second interception and then for good measure they collected a Widnes chip through and scored off that.

All in all a good day for the Bronco's, not so good for Widnes.


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

Just 619 at the Sheffield Eagles-Toulouse Olympique game.

I drove down the A19 and the M18 to catch some rugby league at Castle Park, the Doncaster Knights RUFC ground.

Toulouse made the most of having a strong wind behind them to lead 20-0 after 32 minutes. No way back from that for Sheffield! Eagles crossed on the stroke of half-time. Tighter and scrappier in the second half. Eagles went over in the 59th minute, Toulouse in the 71st. A Sheffield try, converted from the touchline, created from the last play of the game, gave the final score - 26-14 - a slightly misleading look. Toulouse, no great shakes, were stronger and faster than Eagles, who, to my neutral eye, appear to have a long, hard season ahead.

Admission was £17 and a 44-page programme cost £3.
