Yes the Keepmoat game wasn't one to remember... well, not for the right reasons!


Sadly, the 82 points conceded that day remains the most the Wolfpack have scored. Let's pray there is no repeat.

It'll be interesting to see who is in the Dons squad considering the related work issues. Mark Castle seemed to take a knock to the head last Sunday. Does anyone know if he was okay after the game?

I don't really buy into players playing for a place next season.
I think barring injuries they do there best every game.
The fact is there will be one or two who will want out of Club Shmuck Doncaster.
They will be the better ones.

So we will be starting from square one again virtually, as in the last three seasons.

Players are queuing up to play here?

Doubt it!

It's a job locally/dosh/prospects/honours that drive players ... and having a home somewhere.

I agree they do their best in every game barring injuries. It's probably one of the reasons why I think I've enjoyed watching rugby all my life.

I've got loads of respect for anyone who is brave enough to put a rugby shirt on.

They clearly benefit from the money they get from playing but I'm sure the majority do it because they love playing the game. I can't start to imagine the sacrifices they have to make to keep fit and persuade their loved ones that they're going to training after a hard day's work, and that they might come back with a few more broken bones after the weekend match!

Yes, we probably forget what the players do for our entertainment and the pain barriers they put themselves through.

I never forget that they put the bodies on the line and their very livelihood every game.
I am amazed they aren't all forced to wear protective headgear.
Irrespective of whether they prefer to sweat freely, hear freely etc.

It would be out of their hands ...if I ruled the world ... as I should of course.
lol

RH is quoted in the League Express stating 'There are a few that can't travel because of work, so there will be some changes to the side, but we'll still be sending a strong team'.


This just illustrates the stupidity of including a club like Toronto in our league.

It all helps the RFL's masterplan.
Only Toronto in that league is the future.
The other clubs will become important when they (RFL) can find another Toronto.
I mean stepping stones do have a purpose.
