Good to see coach travel available at a respectable 15 quid , after fax away who knows , but it should be fun and that's all that matters , up the fantastic kneets.😀😀😀

No chance of winning ( far above everyone in Championship) but at start of season you would have taken being in semi final. York have had a great season along with Barra,Fax and Batley ( who haven't finished yet). All done well to compete with Leigh and Fev's budget's.

No one expected us to beat Fax, so we have nothing to lose and all to play for, just hope it's not another blow out

Leigh and Fax are a different beast,we can't beat em since beginning of season lol.

Hopefully a lot closer but if not it will just prove again how far in front they are.

There’s very little pressure on York, just go out there, move the ball about and give it your all.

Leigh should win, and should win comfortably, I expect Leigh to win by 50/60 points. They’ve probably been the best side in the championship for many years but we’ve seen much fancied teams lose before in sudden death RL - London at Toronto, Rochdale at Toulouse (2016 L1 final), Sheffield vs Wigan.

A slightly different tack.

What year was it when York beat the New Zealanders at Clarence St. with half of our "A" team in?

 

 

 

 

Early 70s, if I remember we beat Leigh away 2 days before the Kiwi game, Keith Gullen was the fullback.
