It’s been a long time coming, but FINALLY we have had a shock in the Qualifiers.
Bradford’s thrashing of Salford has changed the entire complexion of the Super 8s and has brought the game alive.
It was one of many big stories to come out of Rugby League this week, and you already know too well that we’ve covered all bases in this week’s edition.
Here’s a taster of what to expect when you buy your copy this week.
1, A swift return for Albert Kelly is on the wish list for all Hull Kingston Rovers fans at the minute, but are their dreams going to become reality? Their chairman, Neil Hudgell has updated us on his star half-back.
2, There’s a siege of important games coming up for Castleford, but it hasn’t stopped Daryl Powell planning for the future. They secured the services of York centre Greg Minikin last week, and Powell has been telling us all about his recruitment policy.
3, He might be preparing for a Challenge Cup final, but Zak Hardaker has got his eye on an England jersey later this year. Whether he or Sam Tomkins should take the number one spot is a debate that has raged on for some time now, but Hardaker has finally given us his thoughts on the matter.
4, Speaking of the Challenge Cup, we’ve put together a cracking preview piece to get you in the mood ahead of Wembley, with various stats, facts and figures about the two clubs and the competition’s history.
5, Salford – the club that just keeps giving us endless inches of content. Iestyn Harris has announced his period of sick leave is over, so why isn’t he back with the Red Devils? We have all the speculation.
6, What’s going on at St Helens? Another defeat last week has seen them almost slip out of the top four. Our very own Garry Schofield has the lowdown in this week’s ‘Pulling No Punches’.
