Riddy was made a scapegoat by Jukes after being thrown in against Cas the first game of last year unfit after having back problems all pre season and not being able to train. He then went and got Huddersfield out of the bottom 8 and was shafted by Jukes. Practically every player in the team asked Jukes to bring Riddy back from Hudds and he wouldn't because he'd lose face.

Gregg McNally was never given a chance based on defence?? he immediately made us more potent in attack when he did get a chance, has any of you seen Gareth Obrien tackle? hes still one of the best fullbacks in the UK game.

Brierley manufactured his own move after having his request for a pay rise knocked back, he was quickly found out of his depth in SL and even now his "mentor" Rowley has dropped him against teams where something is at stake, read into hat what you will.

None of the players liked or even respected Jukes that's where the problem was, I don't know of any other club that sacks all the players instead of the coach??

Look at Huddersfield & St Helens now.


Absolutely spot on. :CLAP: :CLAP:

Binosh is spot on about Jukes.

The club knew early this season that a wedge was developing between Jukes and the players. 2017 was all repeating itself early in 2018. Derek was under immense pressure.

The reaction from some of this seasons squad later on the day that Jukes actually fell on his sword tells us everything.

A more diplomatic assessment was made by Harrison Hanson in his programme notes following the Toulouse defeat, but telling all the same.

We seem to have slipped back into the bad old days of minimal communications, Ste. And I thought we had got that sorted!

Well that seens to have been penned with an "air of confidence" that seems you are privvy to information that leaves you without doubt or concern as to the future of the club, should I be reading this message along with your other one liner regarding the voting at the EGM?

Hi Alan

In this situation the last thing anyone interested in taking over the club or forming a new one would want is to have their name(s) banded about all over the place. I think we just have to be patient on this occasion. The worst possible situation would be if a premature announcement were made and then it all went pear-shaped as happened recently at Whitehaven.

Hi Brian,

I understand that fully and I wouldn't expect, or feel entitled, to know anything about that.

It's other aspects of communication I feel are lacking: -

e.g. How are the injuries to Liam Hood, Nathan Mason, and Rhys Evans progressing? (the lack of information on Hood, led to rumours that he had left the club)
Is Ryan Bailey still with us?
Is Jamie Acton to be considered for the remaining matches?
Why are we not producing a match day magazine?
Why was the scoreboard not working for the Swinton game?
Why was there no statement, thanking the players who left for 'pastures new' before the transfer deadline?
Why are we so quick to announce 'positive' news, but shy away from saying anything about the 'not so positive?

Do you get my drift? I've always been a firm believer in keeping your customers/potential customers informed. That way, they feel part of the club. We are failing miserably to do that, at the moment.
