Torrential rain that day, so Price decided to play Ratchford at 13, and Ashton at fullback so we were a forward down before the kick-off, in a game that was always going to be won in the forwards..

It was a double header too .and the Leeds v Wigan game played before our game which Leeds won in the forwards showed the way to play the conditions.


Wasn't Austin at 13?

When was that?


2014, we had the home end at saints, a lot of fans didn't see the first half, cos they were lining up for food/drink and they kept saying another 5 minutes.

now if they had seen us, they would have seen warrington fail to get out of their 40, by continually giving short forward passes.

mental.

Someone more in the Moe will confirm but I think 2014 we went with fairly high expectation hoping rubber duckie was in the crowd.

I'd have our game v Hudds at Salford. It seemed to work out last time and was the highest attendance at that ground for some time no idea if it still is.

Just under 10k for that Huddersfield semi in 2012, I can't see it being much more than that this year so size wise its better and location probably more suitable than Saints, but not sure on its availability etc.

Sale Sharks are away that weekend at Saracens...and easier for our opponents (and UR ha ha) feels a bit more central

Yes, Your team sheet shows he played there.

I knew that we played a back at loose forward, and I thought it was Ratchford, but it was Austin.

Stupid decision, given the conditions.

Thanks. So that's 2 / 2 CC Semi finals in the last decade lost at the Vapedome? Not sure I would agree with the Rubber ones description as "lucky" :lol:

Ah, the year of the Chris Bridge kicking masterclass. That was a shambolic day.
