We did ok in 74/75 too.
But this is as good as I've seen for a whole season. Lots of flashes but nothing like this.

We veteran fans with memories of past good times are getting a bit scarce nowadays but my dad told me my first game
watchin Trinity was October 1951 at Fartown when we beat Keighley 17- 3 ( I think ) to win the Yorkshire Cup. Dont remember much about the game cos I was only 5. My favorite player around that time was Don Robinson.

I think the thing about this season is that we were so far behind almost all other Super League clubs until recently that the achievement of getting so far in front cannot be understated.
Past bursts of glory were generally during periods when there was much more of a level playing field.
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as me.

Yes, best season I can recall, apart from one aspect, and that might ruin everything in the end. We're like Cinderella getting the ball, except when we leave our shoe behind at midnight, Prince Charming will chuck it in the bin and move on to his next posh beauty.
