October Comp

Recommended Posts

Got to be better than nowt. Just be a bit weird if players have signed for other teams and how motivated they'll be. I can't see the clubs being able to charge full admission either, but we'll see. No doubt we'll be playing Dewsbury twice!

If they can organise it so that crowds can attend safely, then I think we should go for it. It will bring some much needed finance into the club, and the bottom line is that we are a rugby club, and our reason for existing is to play rugby. I don't think the player thing should be an issue as it happens every season anyway. 

My only concern is that October/November are the two months mentioned for a second wave so whether it actually goes ahead or not who knows.

Players are contracted until the end of November so, as DD says, it shouldn't be an issue.

Are you anticipating many of your players moving on? Unlike in "normal" seasons there has been very little speculation about movement of players within the Championship.

No. Not saying maybe some might.

That is very comprehensive POR it should be doable for the Championship and L1 clubs.

Any team that voted to end the season should be excluded from the comp you can't have it both ways

on the main forum  Sheffield, Halifax, Rochdale, Toulouse  and kieghley have  said no and so far only batley have said yes  personally I applaud those who   have said  no and hope FEV will tell the RFL to stick it where the sun don't shine as well 

Hope you win the final🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

I think to say we have confirmed we will enter is a bit premature. We have approached it positively but do not think we have actually confirmed entry or otherwise yet.

Why? And do you think they will? If they enter, surely they would be one of the favourites. Would it give them a chance to recoup some of the money that MC has laid out or would it be financally detrimental to the club?

Newcastle and Hunslet have also pulled out. The way things are going, will the competition be worthwhile competing in?

why because the RFL is a shambles and would not like to give them the pleasure of saying look what we gave to you 

money irrelevant think it will cost more to enter than what you get out

and want FEV to concentrate on pre season training to get the best out of  next season

And yet every club that has withdrawn has praised the efforts and decision-making of the RFL. You, of course, know better.
