Re: Burgess leaves on medical grounds

Regardless of the circumstances I'm sure we all wish George all the best for the future and hope that he has a speedy recovery from his operation. Its a shame it didn't work out. It was a gamble and it didn't pay off. Hindsight is a wonderful thing I guess! Be interesting to see how the space on the...

Re: Head Shots

I think Rugby League is harder to work with zero tolerance than union Breaking the line in union is not the idea of players - its more strategic as if you break without support you could be turned over so the impacts are more controlled the props in particular arent looking for a big impact they ar...

Head Shots

Sure you've probably seen the class action case being made against the RFU, WRU and World Rugby. I will likely get slated for this but I think this is an area where Rugby League is severely lagging behind and needs to seriously get under control or we will likely see similar cases being brought in R...

Re: Josh Charney

Josh is contracted at Wire till 2022. Now we all know that when the NRL come knocking contracts count for very little, but I can't see Wire releasing him to join us without a sizeable transfer fee changing hands. Much as I'd love to have him back, there aren't many better out and out finishers in th...

New Kit

So the reveal is due tomorrow, We've seen one doing the rounds on twitter. I believe the 3 years have come around again meaning we're due another "Non-Traditional" kit. Apart from the obvious "Its not Cherry and White Hoops" issue (Not mentioning the monstrosity in place of our crest) I quite like i...

Re: Saints squad

Think it was inevitable that we would be sending a squad like this. Bit of an Easter Monday style squad. Why did this game have to be Saints! 3 games in 8 days, something had to give. Obviously we want the strongest squad possible for the Cup Semi final. If ever there was an opportunity for these yo...

Re: CROWDS SET TO RETURN TO SUPER LEAGUE

I would hope that they do a ballot of season ticket holders but I suspect they will have a commitment to corporate ticket holders and they will get first dibs. Anything left after that will go to Season ticket holders. However they do it there's going to be disappointed people but its a step in the ...

Re: Standard of Officiating

That's kind of the point im making. Their naff call was cancelled out by ours, but both were terrible calls, as was the call to disallow Fazs try. Every week we have the post about who's reffing and theres not a single one we could get who we'd say "im glad we've got him, hes a decent ref who let's ...

Standard of Officiating

Its really letting our game down. The most frustrating thing is the lack of consistency. The head shot thing really needs to be got under control before someone gets seriously hurt, but you'll see the same challenge three times dealt with in three different ways. Compare this with Union. You may not...

Re: Season ticket options

I would dearly love to be in a position to say "Keep my money it's fine" but i'm not so it will be the credit against next years season ticket for me. More than happy to commit for next season. Can't wait to get back in my seat with a pint and a piebarm!
