Well, after reading the anti-Cougar news I thought i'd just pipe in and have a good old
Shame about the loss of the 1st Divison trophy out of our grasps yesterday, but I think
we really lost the grip when we drew at Whitehaven.
But when we look at this season it can be thought of as one of the most exciting in
recent years. The three teams at the top are justified in being there, and I only wish
that all three could be promoted to the Super League; with some of the most impressive
football that I have seen from the likes of Widnes, Salford and of course Keighley I
think that we could teach the Workingtons, Oldhams and Warrington's of this world how to
play a more entertaining game.
But let's refer to Keighley.. it really does take an ignoramous to condemn us. The
following teams are set to receive 700 k from Murdoch: Salford; Widnes; Fev; Hull (!)
and Wakefield. Keighley are set to receive 500 k..... UNFAIR ???? I think so. Perhaps
if we had received this other 200 k we could have bought a quality (if not 2) players
which would have supplememnted our squad and prevented us from suffering in such a costly
manner from our numerous injuries. So in these terms we have done exceptionally well
this season.... look at our challengers last season: Batley; Huddersfield; Whitehaven;
Rochdale and Dewsbury... we are now head and shoulders above them in the league table, so
we really are a good team with a very bright future.
But next season is the real tester. Summer football will add a whole new perspective
onto the game. May the best team win !
Congratulations Salford...... bad luck to us Cougars.. and better luck next time Widnes
(as long as it isn't at our expense !).
Oh.... and yes I really am so biased you wouldn't believe it !
