Mark Campbell's thoughts on the season so far


Recommended Posts

  • Normy_Rover changed the title to Mark Campbell's thoughts on the season so far

I thought he was mostly very good but seems to lay most of the blame at the paying fans who have a right to complain when every week rovers defence is really poor and it’s no good saying we outspend others if you are not getting the right players however thats probably due to money and players desires to play for fev. OK I believe our attack is as good as anyones but defence has always been the key to success just watch saints they defend like lions. I honestly cannot see rovers having any chance of promotion this season barring increasing the super league to 14. I will be delighted to be proved wrong and rovers win the play offs but unfortunately I feel we will be runners up once again this year. I really admire Mark for his constant support of the club in many different ways and if only for his sake rovers really ought to succeed.

Did anyone else get the impression that a 14 team Super League is a real possibility next year?

 

  I have been saying it all season if you read my posts on the General Rugby League Forum.

Probably my biggest frustration when discussing our performances. You can't criticise unless you're a Super League winning coach or a wealthy backer...apparently.

  If they go with a 14 team Super League next season do we know the criteria.Will it be the top two in the Championship who qualify or will it be the Play off finalists.If the latter that will open things up for other teams in the play offs with so much at stake.

It won't be 14 teams.

It's win the final or another championship season if we lose. Upside to losing is we play either toulouse or wakey. 

As a francophile I'd love it to be toulouse.... but, I hope its wakey and toulouse v fev is a SL fixture.😊

Honestly, I'd take toulouse over wakey as a fixture anyway. But that's me. Other opinions are available.

If you're paying 500+, you're paying way too much.

Even then, I'd still prefer Toulouse.

Depends how many kids you have that would want to go.

Choice of Victor Hugo or Cas Indoor Market then? 

Not giving you option of Ponte's as that would be unfair on VH 😉

I take it you've been to the VH? Come and find me at the next game and I'll bore you rigid with our experience there a few years ago! 🤣
