Interesting article on cup shocks over the years 

Amateur teams have beaten pro/semi pro fairly regularly over the years. No signs that it's increased in recent years though, as has been mentioned here, 2016 was a particularly bad year.

Don’t know what you mean. 2016 was a great year. I had a £10 treble on Kells, Pilks and Lock Lane, as well as £25 on Kells at 2/1.

Leaving shortly for the Skolars Chargers match. Only a 90 minute journey for a home game. Really looking forward to it after the last couple of years, but, having seen the Skolars squad, it is with a bit of trepidation. Most experience has been ripped out of the team.

I’ll be supporting Army today as I have a link to the them although have never served.

Hoping this forces derby will be a good one!

Anyone else watching?

We’ll be watching at home given the rivalry it should be a cracker

BIG hit from Tamani! Bradford fans of a certain age may have heard that sentence before.

That was a beauty of a try, made by No.7 Declan Baines/Baynes.

Overall, this has been a fairly ordinary half, with plenty of errors on both sides, but the highlights have been very high indeed.
