    are you kidding me

    If he puts in performances like that until the end of the season then he has my full respect for leaving. Myler got so much abuse last night Laughing but Ratchford got a decent reception as he still has a lot of respect for the club.

    That yearly isn't that much, it's probably more of a revenue problem if they can't cover that.

    It is for a club like them.. If you see anything about Castleford going in to financial troubles you heard it off me first. Wink

    It will probably be dog shit.

    Not bad, we've been fucked by injures this year so hopefully this helps out.

    Long looked shit for Hull FC near the end so I don't imagine he's got any better.

    I'm pretty happy he's gone, we have now got a fee as he would have left at the end of the season for nothing.

    As for Sean Long it is a viable option as we only really have three other options below.



    Move Moon from centre to scrum half as he played there once or twice in Australia but I wouldn't go for this due to him being our main attacking threat.

    Bring Sneyd in, this would be the best option as he has played before and him and Holdsworth would be an interesting partnership.

    Bring in the rookie Fages, this French kid is tipped for big games which is why we have rewarded him with a 5 year contract but I don't think it would be worth throwing him in the deep end against a big bruising team like Hull KR.

    I'm sure Veivers will make the right choice anyhow.

    I hope not, rugby league is vastly superior. tut tut


    As for the fee I'd say about 50k?

    Don't know what to make of todays performance. At least we won. Almost losing to Widnes isn't good whatsoever, However, it shows that we will never say die and fight until the end.

    Its a quicker game. Rugby Union is a kick festival for 80 minutes.

    It's the Northern game really. It's really popular in the North West and Yorkshire. There is only one Southern team and they're by far the worst supported and worst overall.

    But in terms of the actual game, it's designed to encourage runs. Where in union they have to worry about recycling the ball, in league they can take 5 tackles before kicking it down the field. Means they can focus on making runs, which is the most exciting part of rugby.
