And who beat Leigh....
Unlike the whole of the 'new' Leigh team who have come to play for Jukes and the love of Leigh. Cause you can see how much playing for Leigh means to them. And it's not because of the money. Oh no. Definitely not mercenaries.

Reni played well for Leigh & contributed towards our promotion success, however he is now 35, will be RL rusty & Bodene Thompson is surely a better signing for Leigh.

What this suggests to me is that Paul Rowley lacks the vision to look beyond Leigh & ex Leigh players, I really don't understand why his paymasters are not wise to this.

TW must have some SC space available following the sacking of 3 well paid forwards, it will be interesting to see who they sign next.


Zak Hardaker is already on the pay roll however I am not sure he will count until the end of his ban if he cannot play?

Interesting! How much did they pay Cas for his registration?

I believe he went into boxing, so presuming he’s stayed in shape he could still do a job at Championship level at 35. How old was Jamie Peacock when he played for Hull Kr?

Yes 12. Plus Whiting, Laithwaite and Rawsthorne, who have all had loan spells at Leigh. Then there are three members of the coaching team, plus the physio!

We must have had a good team, back in the day! :wink:

Reni was a huge influence, in our 'promotion' season, and I don't think we replaced him properly. However, he's had a long spell out of the game, and must surely find it hard to come back again? Good luck to him though - we benefitted from his spell at Leigh.

Only interested in the pay day? What an unusual comment. You do understand that in professional sport, the players are involved to earn a living. What else do you expect him to be a interested in?

You're assuming that they were under the cap to start with!

Pretty much sums them up for me.
I have to say Toronto look very ordinary and they won't trouble SL sides (on today's showing) should they make the qualifiers. Too many players just going through the motions which will be OK when they play Sheffield or Swinton which should get them a top 4 spot, but as Halifax and Barrow showed, they're there for the taking....London embarrassed them today and if they get turned over like that in Canada let's see how many hot dog canons and beer tents they'll need to keep the fans coming back!






JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Wakefield is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

I'm surprised the entire RLFans expansionist movement haven't been all over this. Horrible lot from the top down I know my club had the misfortune to have to fight er I mean play this lot last year. Rowley's thug army won't worry the bottom four SL sides other than physically so the RFL will have to move the goalposts.






Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

Cant argue with that based on the second half of yesterdays game apart from the thug bit.
No fight in this team at all
