Re: Any new faces

I think if we continue our recent good form, we might find that potential players might start to look at us in a different light.

Re: The Bottom Seven, Tuesday Feb 27th 2024

I share your optimism Ginge, I feel we have definitely turned a corner. Plenty of games left and I feel that we need to look at our results/performances rather than looking at what other teams are doing. I think we have more than a 50/50 chance of avoiding relegation.

Re: Curzon V Darlington

Brilliant result, only 3 points off safety, although our goal difference makes it effectively 4. Ten games left, game on.

Re: The bottom seven

Great to have you back Ginge, even though it's talking about our chances of avoiding relegation, rather than the usual push for promotion. After Saturday I am more optimistic of our chances of avoiding the drop and even if we do get relegated, I think we have the basics of a decent team that will be...

Re: Rugby League

As I said we were lucky with a couple of decisions that went our way, but you do make your own luck. I also agree that a different referee should have been appointed. The gap between the top clubs and the bottom clubs has never been so big as it is now. You may get to a point were Championship clubs...

Re: Darlington v Buxton

Saw Mark Prudhoe in the bar before the game, his legs look shot. I think he was coming to check up on the Sunderland keeper, as Prud's is involved in goalkeeper coaching at Sunderland. I guess he will have had good things to say about the keeper.

Re: Rugby League

Yes a great game, I think Wigan were a bit lucky with a couple of decisions, but our defence is world class and Bevan French and Jai Field are extra special. We were lucky with a couple of decisions, that could have gone the other way. I thought Penrith were very gracious in defeat and especially Na...

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

I've spoken to a few Boston fans today and they are all surprised that we are near the bottom of the table. They thought we looked really good until they opened the scoring. Unfortunately it's not getting us points, even when we play well.

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:

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!

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.

Great news for RL, as the BBC will show 15 SL league games over the season and also their continuing commitment to the Challenge Cup and the World Club Challenge. The first game will be next Saturday between Castleford and Wigan.

Best performance of the season by some way. Really liked how we didn't just to try and shut up shop.
