What do you think to the suggestion that fan's opinions swayed the decision to keep Reilly?


With the way people slagged Sharp for playing CT at fullback I can't believe anyone was swayed by sentimentality.

That was the season we got into the play-offs and Thorman played well at FB then?

I appreciate everyone's different opinions on Reilly, Sharp and Thorman ect, lets respect each others.

ATEOTD the trophy cabinet was hardly bursting at the seems, granted we got to the c/c final and finished in top 6, but what i'd love to be doing is coming on here in the next 2-3 yrs cheering that we won the C/C and won the SL play off final and league.

It's about time the sleeping giant awoke, 2nd best is so last year.






If i was to marry, i dont know if i ought to, if i would, if i should , i'd marry a Prop's daughter, she'd go down, i'd go down, we'd all go down together, we'd be alright in the middle of the night going down together!!

I remember it well as it was the last game Nic went to before she had Tom.


I was there.

Isn't it strange how people select certain things from the big picture to try and make their POV and miss others out. To make the informed opinion you need all the relevant info you can get.

Reilly is a Huddersfield boy. That means he's going to get backed, much more so than Sharp or Thorman. I remember one time very early in his career with us that Reilly dropped a bomb that the opposition scored from and we lost by that score. He was absolutely gutted but the crowd clapped and supported him.

We all saw what happened with Thorman. He bore the brunt.

We always have our favourites and we always have the one we love to dig at. Our homegrown lads and our favourite Aussie. Then the Aussie we snipe at too. Waste of money this, all hype that. Mick De Vere is a classic example of people having a dig at a world class player because they didn't know anything about him and expected him to do things he wasn't here to do. The rabble need their heroes and their hate figures and they always will!
