Re: Rugby League

KR's game at Udders put back 90 minutes because of confirmed Covid tests at Udders.
Not sure what difference 90 minutes can make.

Re: Update Required?

As per the interview - No move to the Arena if fans aren't allowed in - DJ notes 'why would we pay twice' in such a scenario - If we go to 'covid capacity' then it will be at the Arena - Has met with Darlington Rugby club and says they want to know what we need for the future (i.e. what would keep ...

Re: Update Required?

All these comments about are WE ready can WE stream, etc, etc,etc. and the club passing comments and info on to the fans, is, in my opinion, being a tad short sighted.

Re: Rugby League

I agree there is a chasm between the top4 & the rest, but as Hull KR proved on there day any side is capable of beating any other side. Wigan showed a lot of character to overcome a very resourceful Wakefield. But the scheduling of us playing St Helens on Tuesday & then Leeds in the semi final next...

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 ...

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 t...

Sad to see the way Simon Woolford has been treated by Udders. Another "mutual" decision. As anyone who reads this board often knows I have believed that they were the poorest side in SL for the last 3 seasons. I think he worked wonders just to keep them floating.

Re: impact on ground capacity

I can't see any point whatever in worrying about the arena contract. It was made pretty clear the 2 years was so we do not have to re-apply every few weeks and also we were told the contract is for us to play there, "for as long as needed during that period". Thus, if we don't use it at all there is...
