I do actually sympathise with York as I guess they are in a similar boat as us when it comes to stadia i.e they don't own their ground? It's certainly not the worse it terms of structure or pitch.

Also, I imagine losing Chris Thorman will be a huge blow to them

No problem with CT as he's here for rest of this season & want's to end his
playing career on a high & we are at about full strength tonight for the first time
this season against you .

Think you have heavy rain forecast all day & night, just hope the games on as we
are coming over.

Unlikely that the game would be called off KTID.

Vs Hunslet the pitch was very wet but from the stands didn't look muddy at all. There looks to be plenty of grass and I understand that the Rotherham United groundsman did a lot of work on the pitch and to be honest it's paid off. It does look the best it has done for years.

I hope you have a good evening, but not at the Eagles expense :) - thanks for making the journey.

Nothing to worry about WRT the game being called off mate.

Safe journey.

All a bit predictable in the end,York did well 1st half,We wern't brilliant 1st half,some dodgy refereeing,Leahy is rubbish,A good referee in any sport is one you don't notice,we certainly noticed him,Harsh sending off,The problem you have is you hav 6 decent teams and then the gulf in class to the others is there for all to see,an idea drop three or four down from super league,Create a competitive two divison format with 1 up and 1 down,Keeping the play-offs,would be a lot more intersting,Not being funny but the games against York,Swinton,Hunslet and Dewsbury to a lesser extent are pretty pointless affairs and very predictable,the competition needs a shake-up,The RFL are too scared to ruffle the super league feathers,Drop Widnes,London,Wakefield,Cas out of super league,put them with us,Feath,Leigh,Batley,Fax,Keighley and lets make it interesting and competitve again and a little incentive of promotion,The gap between super league and this comp would be closer than it is now.

Thought we were excellent second half. Apparently Mitch was sent off for a headbutt (according to Michael Knowles in the VP lounge after the game) so we'll see what comes of that.

Five tries between Menzie and Knowles, that left hand side is proving to be really potent for us.

Thought Pat Smith did alright at stand off, didn't reckon much to James Davey to be honest but it's early days.

26 for Q now.

Oh and the referee was an absolute joke, so inconsistent, come to expect nothing less from that clown over the last few years though. Bring back Colin Morris all is forgiven.

Drove down from Whitley Bay for this match, wondering whether it would be called off because of all the torrential rain. Glad to see that the pitch was in good nick all told. Menze's 1st try - I think he would have gone through a brick wall to score that. Much better all round in the 2nd half and was as one sided as the score indicates.

Michael Knowles was outstanding, another very hardworking performance. The referee was shocking, he needs a geometry lesson to sort his angles out etc for forward passes and offsides. Perhaps Mr Jowett can recommend a good school? I didn't see the headbutt but fair do's if it was. I hope Menzie's MOTM speech was up to his usual standard.

If anyone's having a party there is nothing like a good DJ. . .but the guy at DVS is. . . . Oh I can't be bothered with the punchline but too loud man.
