Re: Rugby League

Well that's the end of Castleford's season, although I can really see Huddersfield getting into the top 4. The game had a distinctly end of season game, even though it isn't the end of the season quite yet.

Very very hard to see a number of old and respected Rugby league clubs surviving the next 6 months.
Think the death nell will be chiming soon.
Sadly I think you're right. Many clubs from many sports will not survive the Coronavirus pandemic. Do you think any SL sides will not make it though?

Re: SEASON POSTPONED?

I don't expect any serious financial help from the Government. They don't have any spare cash to throw our way, especially after the effect Coronavirus on the countries finances. Apparently around 100 sports are pleading with cash to survive & they no doubt all think they are a special case. So if a...

Re: SEASON POSTPONED?

I think saying the season is postponed is a bit dramatic, I do realise that you put a question mark in the subject matter. Obviously things are changing very quickly & it's impossible to predict what'll happen in a week or two, let alone a month or two. I do think that things will only improve slowl...

Re: Latest friendly

All test events with crowds involved are almost certainly being ended, so the postponement of the season starting is almost inevitable. Very bad news for many clubs up & down the country.

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 i...

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 th...

I didn't know about Brad Singleton joining us, so thanks for the heads up. With the exception of Brad Singleton, most of the Toronto players signing for other SL sides, have just signed to the end of this season, so I'd expect them to return to Toronto at the end of the season. Hull KR are flying up...

Re: Rugby League

I agree Hull KR played very well & we played very badly. Recent weeks in the SL, just go to show that any side is capable on their day to beat any other side. The SL is very hard to predict this season. as no team is dominating proceedings at the moment.

Re: Rugby League

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 ...

Don't fancy our chances down at Catalan, although they haven't played for a while, which might just give us a chance.

Re: Ground Capacity - Arena or BM

The way Coronavirus 19 cases are increasing, parts of the country will be in lockdown long before the season is due to start. That could end the chances of fans being allowed into games & games being postponed.
