I agree with that but.... why would the RFL favour Featherstone over Fax? What have we done wrong?


Very good question. Maybe people saw that we WERE successful once and that is our lot? Depressing tho.
We shall one day be back where we belong and along shall come the Bulls defectors.

I follow a championship club and am on a strict diet at the moment, so I doubt very much that our paths will cross anytime soon. :BEAT:

Nigel Wood's one man campaign to destroy 'Fax, starting with naming us the Blue Sox, I rest my case. :wink: :wink:

We're not reliant on away support, although it's good to get a few more pennies into the bank when the likes of Bradford or HKR come to town. The main problem for the likes of Fax next year is having (possibly/probably) 3 games in another country (Toulouse, Catalans and Toronto), plus a trip down to London. Tough on players who have other jobs, tough on supporters who like to go to every game, and probably tough from a financial perspective unless the RFL are covering all the expenses for those away games.

...other than that, games against teams with next to zero away support can be a bit of a damp squib. Unless the home team really puts on a performance, the lack of an away team support to generate some atmosphere can result in games feeling very flat. We've played fantastic against some teams, put 40 points past them, but walked out of the ground feeling deflated - for sport to be enjoyable you need a good opponent, and either a massive home crowd or less numbers but with some friendly and noisy rivalry between them.


Very well put.

Still, cheer up - you could well have a local derby against us (Leigh) back on the agenda! :(

This is a bit like saying Donald Trump prefers Mexicans to Moslems, though.

I know, they don't want either of us, we just have to do our best to get under their skin.

It will be fascinating to see what happens if Catalans were to be the ones to come down and how the RFL manoeuvre the restructure so they can go straight back up.
I see a recipe for a Frenchy Franchise in the making courtesy of michelin man Nigella.

Can't see Catalans going down. The machinations to keep them in are gathering pace. Firstly we have Bird's ridiculous reduction of suspension, next there will be a glut of Widnes/Leigh/London players up before the Disciplinary, and what odds Tony Gigot appealing successfully, yet again, against his two year ban? :wink:
