Re: Rugby League

We aim to please!! Awesome display by Wigan, as we dominate Hull & we must fancy our chances in the semi-final against Hull. The worrying thing for the rest of the SL, is the continuous production of young players from the youth ranks. Bevan French has pace to burn & has to be the speediest player ...

Re: Rugby League

Watched some of Hull KR's game against Leeds. Thought you were unlucky with the first Leeds try, as it looked to me like your player had the ball stripped by the Leeds player, in the lead up to the try. After that Hull KR just seemed to capitulate. You shared the second half, but given the damage t...

Re: Rugby League

Sad to see the way Simon Woolford has been treated by Udders. Another "mutual" decision. As anyone who reads this board often knows I have believed that they were the poorest side in SL for the last 3 seasons. I think he worked wonders just to keep them floating. Pete, I see your lot have signed Bra...

Re: impact on ground capacity

I can't see any point whatever in worrying about the arena contract. It was made pretty clear the 2 years was so we do not have to re-apply every few weeks and also we were told the contract is for us to play there, "for as long as needed during that period". Thus, if we don't use it at all there is...

Are Boro in financial trouble? They seem to have been selling left, right and centre for years now.

Yes you did. Well Wigan really do surprise me, coming off a thumping by Hull KR, it looked a nailed on further loss away at Catalan. But there you go what do I know about RL, as they blow away Catalan in a one sided game. Admittedly our first try shouldn't have been allowed with a forward pass, but...

Being a Rhino's fan it's tough to watch but Leeds aren't good enough and have a lot of players missing but Cas (who also have players missing) are unstoppable!

Re: Rugby League

Feeling totally gutted to have lost to Saints. We were under the cosh for the first 20 much like last week but after that we at worst matched them. Saints have now given away 8 tries since the restart and we have scored 6 of them. Not bad for the "whipping boys" of the league. Yet again for the seco...

Big smile.
Played the top 3 and not disgraced by any of them.
If you remember back at the pre season I said I thought we had good players if we could stay injury free.
You may not have enjoyed the result, but you must have enjoyed the way we played.

Here we go again. A 4 day turnaround is not great when you are facing the league leaders but it is what it is as Tony Smith keeps on saying.
