    you know me, I'm straight down the line, I respect RG for coming on here when he gets dogs abuse and the fact that when he's not on the wind up 95% of the time he really knows RL. Nothing wrong with a bit(lot) of •••• taking and banter between oppo' fans IMO.

    Are Wigan fans still insisting George Burgess is retiring? Feels like months since this was known? Great use of another years cap space!
    I am.

    He'll retire before Ryan Hampshire plays for Saints.

    They are building a decent squad with a handy coach. I can see them having a reasonable challenge.

    I hope that the townsfolk of Huddersfield give them the support they deserve.

    Crowther Street Holdings Ltd does still exist, and is the major shareholder of Sporting Club St Helens Ltd. Crowther Street Holdings Ltd is, by the way, registered in the British Virgin Islands.

    Sporting Club St Helens is the UK holding company which I think owns both the stadium and the actual rugby club.

    Mike Coleman basically funded the stadium build via loans to the club. The majority (if not all) of the loans have subsequently been converted into equity in Sporting Club St Helens, although there are still separate legal charges on Sporting Club St Helens held by Crowther Street Holdings.

    They certainly are, I can see them surprising a few teams next season if they keep everyone fit. Unfortunately, I can't see the town getting behind them, it's just not a RL town and not much of a football one to be honest.

    Im not convinced at all. Greenwood and Ashworth win the Paul Darbyshire and Gary Wheeler ‘potenshul’ award and Josh Jones needs to step up on his season at Hull. Leuetele was a disappointment last seen over here. Yates is about their shrewdest signing. They’ll be no higher than 6th IMO.

    Josh Jones has joined Huddersfield but agree he needs to step up!

    This is it with Huddersfield, there’s so many ifs and buts. If everything goes right they could challenge for top 4, if everything goes wrong they’re relegation candidates. Will Sezer back up his excellent 1st season? Will Watson get the best out of what he has available? Will their new signings settle in and start to prove their full potential? Will their young players from last season kick on? I think it’d take something spectacular for them to click right away, top half and a play off place should be their goal, though that will be a battle. You’ve got Saints, Wigan and Wire as the leading 3 in my opinion followed by Catalans, Leeds and Hull before a bit of a gap to Huddersfield and Castleford then a 3 way relegation scrap between Hull KR, Wakefield and Leigh.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    I hear what you're saying. They already have some good players and I think Ashworth, Jones and Leutele have plenty to prove this season, Greenwood I'm not so sure of, I don't think he has the heart for the fight and they seem to have a lot of back rowers but maybe that's the kick up the arse he needs. As you say Yates could be a shrewd signing but for me, Chris McQueen seems smart if he's not here for a holiday. To be honest, it's good to see Davy backing his club/manager and giving him the tools he needs to at least mount a challenge.

    Are you suggesting that financial service companies may be a bit shady? Thanks for the info. Good to read that they are both in it for the long term.

    And I still am.

    Just for charity, if George Burgess retires before the start of the season you give £50 to the Joining Jack charity, if he doesn't I'll donate £50 to The Steve Prescott Foundation.

    Would the monies not be more appropriately allocated to the DW Upholstery fund?

    It's the home of rugby league.

    I'm well aware of that but it doesn't mean many people are interested in the game. Why, I'm not sure as the football team is crap but I know a few blokes from that area and only one of them is an RL fan.
