Re: Hank to Broncos

Hamk is a very good goal kicker, a solid centre and seems to be a really nice bloke. However, he simply isn't fast enough to be a top class super league centre and there is nothing that he or the club can do about it. I wish him all the best for the future but hope that the club isn't in the positio...

Re: George Burges

I hope I'm wrong but I think that either George or the insurance people need convincing that he'll not be able to play at a high level again without an operation. Having an operation is always the last resort and you can't blame the player for trying to avoid it. The situation is really sad for Geor...

Re: George Burges

Nice picture on the 'rugby league news' site of Geore and family enjoying a holiday in the Maldives. I hope the sun works wonder on his dodgy hip.

Re: New Prop

It's so difficult to know what's really going on if the club don't release a statement about George and I suppose it's their business if they don't want to. However, when they don't release details we're all going to speculate and here's my contribution. There is no way theat GB will be fit to play ...

Re: George Burges

Back to the original blog - is there any news on whether George is actually having an operation or not? Finding a solution to George's situation is for me the key to being in a position to win the final rather than just go close again next season. I'm really hoping for some positive news one way or ...

Re: Super League’s 12th club to be announced on Monday

Pedro - did I write that the other teams wouldn't struggle? Whoever got promoted today would struggle with the lack of cash next season.

Re: Super League’s 12th club to be announced on Monday

Disappointed but not surprised. Leigh probably have the best squad at this point but they'll really struggle to survive on only half the cash of the other super league teams. I wanted Toulouse but they may well benefit from missing out this time around. They'll now be in a league without the team th...

Re: George Burges

Perhaps we'll never know the full story but I can't help feeling that resolving the George Burgess problem is the key to us winning or just going close again next season. Best case scenario is that he recovers his fitness and performs at his best next season but I don't belive that's possibe. Let's ...

Re: Joe Greenwood Leaving ?

Joe hasn't been at his best since his first season and, although his form in the latter part of this season was good, I don't think Lammy sees him as a starter (i.e. first 13). He has had probelms with head knocks that seemed to affect his confidence and unfortunately for him, he doesn't give the im...

Re: Bradford Bulls planning Odsal return whether they get in Super League or not

I always thought that Cumbria should have a super league side, despite the problems with a widespread population, until I saw an interview with Leon Pryce on Rugby AM recently. He said that while he was coach at Workington he asked the local players if they thought a super league side would work and...
