2024 season. Empty 2024 season.

Post by Luke Sun 07 Jan 2024, 9:54 pm

With the new 1895 cup format starting soon. Best get this up early.

SL
Wigan where by far the best team last year, after solid recruitment can anyone get near them. Will Hull KR & Leigh continue on from last year's decent seasons, will the sleeping giants (yes Hull, Leeds and Warrington this is you) wake up. And who will be the surprise package.

Championship. 
This is in my opinion the best league. Genuine competition at the top and for the play off places.  Even the bottom could be as tight as last year.

League one.
Unfortunately not as competitive in my opinion, after the drama of the off season, hard to see beyond Oldham doing what Dewsbury did last year and walking away with it. Competing for the play off places could be interesting. 

NRL.
Can anyone stop Penrith (who've won 4 grand finals in a row).

And what should be a fascinating and great game of rugby league in the World club game as Wigan face Penrith.

SL.

With some serious recruitment I think Wigan will start as strong favourites. The Penrith game should be excellent, they won't have any complacency having lost to Saints last year.

Warrington, it will be fascinating to see how Sam Burgess affects their play. Rohan Smith will be under pressure at Leeds if they don't start the season well.

Championship

Wakefield really should win the competition, they signed a another prop yesterday (Joe Vagana's son), with Daryl Powell at the helm aside from Toulouse I don't see many getting that close. Everyone else, Fev, Fax, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Batley, take your pick.

League One

Agree Oldham really should be miles ahead.

The 1st games in the new 1895 Cup took place last weekend.

The club who probably had the most off season drama Newcastle took the field v York, and got stuffed 114 10.
There were a couple of surprises,  Keighley (last season relegated to league one) beat Dewsbury (promoted to the championship) 35-6, and Oldham beat Halifax 24-20 to make a statement. 
The other ties went the way you'd expect.  Barrow won at Workington 30-6, Featherstone travelled to Hunslet and came away with a 62-12 win, Swinton won at North Wales 40-12, and Doncaster won at Midlands 40-4.

It was also the Challenge Cup RD2.
Congratulations to Siddal, West Hull, Hunslet arlfc, Hammersmith Hills, Wath Brow, Stanningley,  Lock Lane, West Warriors, York Acorn & Thatto Heath. Who won there ties and are joined in the 3rd draw by championship & League one sides.

Wakefield look as predicted to be head and shoulders above the rest of the Championship. York are a good side who have recruited well.

Couple of stand outs for me this weekend, I will be interested to see how Oldham get on at Barrow. Fax v Whitehaven & Widnes v Doncaster should be an indicator of early season form.

Some very interesting results across the weekend. Concentrating on the (IMO) most notable results.

Oldham with an impressive win at Barrow 10 - 22,

Congratulations to York Acorns who win at League One Cornwall (I don't even want to think about the travel time on that but it was worth it).

Siddal put on a great show holding Wakefield 6-6 for 30 mins.

A young York side nearly come unstuck at Dewsbury, winning with a late try.

Nice home wins for Fax (Whitehaven) and Widnes (Doncaster)

West Hull also gave a good account of themselves in losing 50-6 to Swinton. 

In my honest opinion this should be when the SL clubs also join, but hey ho.

In terms of the next RD, Bradford/Widnes and Keighley/Featherstone should be good games.And great that York Acorn/Wath Brow means one of them should get a big tie.

This week see's the start of SL, with the game I'm going to the Hull Derby on Thursday, a couple on Sat the rest on Fri. 
And also the last games of the 1895 group stages on Sunday.

Hull KR win the 1st game of SL season, 22-0 at Hull FC. In what was a fairly easy win, and disappointing one sided game for the neutral. 

But being a Rovers fan, suck it you Black & White b******s.

And the final games of SL rd1.

Sam Burgess 1st game as Warrington coach end is a 16-10 defeat away at probably the most consistent team of the last few years Catalan.
And champions Wigan get a comfortable win at Castleford 32-4.

Agreed, the most surprising result, Giants winning at Leigh. I was disappointed in Huddersfield last week, took a step back from an excellent 2022.

The Qauyer-final draw.

Sheffield v Batley, Bradford v Swinton, York v Oldham, Wakefield v Barrow.

Best tie in my opinion is York v Oldham.

Semi final draw.

Winner match 2 (Bradford/Swinton) v winner match 4 (Wakefield/Barrow)
Winner match 3 (York/Oldham) v winner match 1 (Sheffield v Batley).

I can't not mention the Nu Brown sending off (Hull at Warrington). Yes players should be protected but really? Games will be abandoned due to lack of numbers if this carries on, madness.

World Club Challenge tonight, good luck to Wigan. They might need it v Penrith who I am sure will have not forgotten losing to Saints last year.

There is no way on earth that is a sending off, in my opinion its not a penalty.  It's accidental at worst.

Last SL game of the weekend saw Salford defeat Castleford 26-22.

On the challenge Cup rd4 games.

Batley beat Rochdale 30-14, Swinton get a good win v an Oldham side that had defeated all before them 28-12. Sheffield also get an impressive win 32-16 at York. Bradford loss at home to Widnes 26-12, Featherstone stuff Keighley away 58-14.  And Wakefield score 70 against amature oppents again this time Hunslet ARLFC winning 70-6.

RD5 draw (seriously why are we waiting so long for SL teams, makes the competition uninteresting in my opinion).

Halifax v York Acorn, Widnes v Batley,  Swinton v Sheffield and the big tie (and local derby) Featherstone v Wakefield.

It was, shame it was decided by referee decisions (I don't think Wardle touched it down). But otherwise a thrilling spectacle between 2 very even sides. 

This should be the season opener, at a neutral venue USA, Hong Kong, Dubai wherever),to spread the word of how good rugby league can be and showcase the best of both previous season competition.
