Re: Rugby League

Felt sorry for Castleford that the sending off shouldn't have happened. I think RL should adopt the same stance as Rugby Union, were there is a 10 minute period, were there is a revue and the decision is confirmed or the player returns after 10mins. Still Wigan did a professional job and rather worr...

Truro have moved from playing at Plymouth Parkway to Taunton in last couple of weeks.
Ok cheers I didn't know that. Taunton is even further away from Truro than Plymouth, for a home game that's a 240+ mile round trip, which is ridiculous. :crazy:

https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/cv2080emm7eo Bit of inspiration. I've recently worked in Truro and met some Truro fans. They are excited about the future, although they are playing their home games in Plymouth and not Taunton. For home games, it's a 160 mile round trip. They are planning to have ...

Re: South Shields v Darlo

I couldn't make today's game as on a stag do and I don't normally go to away games, but I feel like I should make the effort. So I'm going down to Boston on Tuesday evening and hoping for a similar performance to yesterday's.

Looking forward to the start of the season, looks like we will be able to watch most games ? Not confident with Tigers this season and would think mid table will be an achievement, but you can only hope!
Rob you couldn't have had a much harder start to the season?

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

Before the next BTB, I'd like the club to confirm that the money put into the budget from other sources won't be cut. It seems that the more we put in, the money that comes from other sources and the club goes down. If we raise a record BTB, then we should have a record playing budget.

Best performance of the season by some way. Really liked how we didn't just to try and shut up shop. We looked for a second and we looked far more likely to score a second, than they looked to equalise. The defence was superb and TT didn't have much to do. Any neutral at the game would have thought ...

Thanks for this. We've decided to make a rare trip to a home game v Hereford. I accidentally paid for 6 return tickets (I wanted 3) that were £12. I just couldn't remove them so now we're asking our mates to be glory hunters for a day!
It'll be great to see you at a game old pal.

Re: v Tamworth

There was more fight in the bar, than on the pitch!! Thought we played some decent stuff, as others have said, but no luck in front of goal and we created very few real opportunities. Tamworth were very ordinary, but sometimes you just get the breaks.
