Excellent away win for the Ram's a rare win at Widnes i should imagine. 

2011 was the last time Dewsbury lost a league fixture at Widnes.

Sounds like you just had a eureka moment.

Just want to see a season where there are no financial issues at Bradford and everyone gets paid on time. Once some trust has been re-established we can go from there. 

You are Alan Partridge and I claim my £5😊

That Widnes performance was about as poor as i can remember. Dewsbury just ran hard, completed and put in a decent kick. Widnes completed what, 4 sets all match?

Given what we have seen of Widnes so far this season then more trips to south Wales may well be in the offing.

Think Widnes wouldn't beat anyone with the number of errors they made. Rams were workman-like.

I can't find a single Bulls fan on our (RLFans) Forum who isn't expecting an absolute mullering from Halifax!

Even our usually chronically over-optimistic Facebook banter group seem to be expecting the worst and believe me, that is scarily unusual.

Surely Kear will have toughened them up over the last couple of weeks? He wasn't happy, so can't imagine training has been easy since. 

I think if it was at The Shay, I might have agreed too. But the tight pitch at Dewsbury will even things up.

Best of luck anyway!

Based Widnes being final team due to weaker schedule but they got 1 point from  4 I had pencilled in for them. Swinton in three weeks looking most likely place to get a first win .

No guarantee of them winning at Swinton. They will be no pushovers.

5 drives and a kick works in some circumstances. May be boring but gets results. 
 

Widnes are really ####### me off. They somehow managed to let Tim Sheens leave over what was a stupid penny pinching move surrounding back room staff, binned off the academy, so obviously no long term ambition.  The only player the new coach has brought in was Adam Lawton who’s a liability. A class player on this day but extremely lazy and can’t offload like he used to do

It isnt penny pinching from Widnes that closed the academy.  SL keeping the money plus Covid did that in. 

2019 Admin 2020 Covid.  Widnes like Bradford just need a normal season and go again. Unlike Bradford,  they still have great infrastructure and good people in charge. They'll come good again.

And let's hope they do, as you say a lot of things already in place at Widnes for them to rise again.

It's why we need to make sure some funding is there for the championship . A base amount for every team so that we have a place for clubs to dust themselves down, clean up and come again.

The penny pinching comment was about a back room staff member who was let go against the wishes of the head coach, who subsequently left. Poor move by the club

Widnes could have ran their academy this season as their licence only ran out next season, but deemed it too expensive to keep on, probably giving up on SL membership for a while

Why spend half a million, after a pandemic no less, when SL withheld your funding last time and will probably be giving you the boot next year? 

I want Widnes to have an academy but if the SL clubs that benefit wont support it then asking Widnes to find a full time academy at a part time club is absurd.

I want Widnes to have some semblance of ambition, something that sets us apart from our rivals. Now we’re just another small PT club.

I am so angry at the BBC at not providing a "Radio" coverage of games this weekend, all I seem to get is Mike Sweeney talking about C@p Salford pop groups, avoiding himself who was also C@p

Where were you last Thursday?

Pay £5 for our league and you watch it.

HT 26 - 0 to Fev. 

Best first half of the season from a Fev point of view. Looking a lot more consistent and playing as a team. Making less mistakes. 

I guess the word in the changing room will be to go out and nil Swinton - that will give them real confidence.

Excellent first half for us. No Chisolm, anybody know why?
