Match thread: Championship Rd 21 Summer Bash. Featherstone Rovers v Leigh. Saturday 30th July 2022.


Recommended Posts

A slightly shorter turnaround this week with the Saturday afternoon kickoff.

Injury doubts about Jacks and Bussey to add to the list (Koppy, Hepi, Pickersgill, Kheirallah)

Gale, Ford, Lockwood and Sene-Lafeo missed out against York, so I assume they are available.

Perhaps Dan Fleming too?

Suffice to say, we haven't been in the best of form recently, and we now face Leigh again, a much stronger team than previous champions Toulouse 2021 and Toronto 2019.

We'll beat 'em.

Maybe Saturday, maybe October. Maybe both.

Mac said Jacks and Bussey would both definitely be out, and probably need at least 4 weeks. That makes an already tough task even tougher.

I very much like the glass half full attitude. If we play as we have lately though we'll almost certainly get pummelled, but am hoping we can at least rise to the occasion and show some spirit.

If only we could forfeit.  Definitely would be the best outcome.

What a great idea. We only lose 48-0 if we don't turn up and no risk of injuries. When we lost 70-0 a few years ago to St. Helens at Widnes in the challenge cup most fans enjoyed it. Beer in hand doing the conga around the seating enclosure. Get your dancing shoes on Rob. You will need them.😂😂😂

I'd say Leigh by perhaps 48-6. For me considering recent performances, if we can keep the margin under 20 it would be ok.

OK? It would be a miracle.

We had a 10 minute spell yesterday when we put some ooomph into defense and played some rugby.

Play like that for 80 mins and we've a chance.

Play like we did for the other 70 mins yesterday and it'll be a score that wouldn't look out of place on the other Headingley pitch.

We're in the east stand and terrace , bloody rubbish view , still get wet if it rains , and the sun in our eyes if it shines 😎
