Cup Semis and Final
« on: April 24, 2019, 11:48:04 AM »
What is peoples opinions on this weekends semi finals and the eventual winner of the cup. Lets spice things up don't hold back. Personally I think Knotts vs Wensleydale final and Knotts to win but I aren't biased.

Should be 2 cracking games. On current form, with all teams at somewhere near full strength, I can’t see past a Knottingley v Wensleydale final and then it’s anyone’s game, Knottingley arguably the favourites based on their 2019 form.

Wednesday 9th May. And I think they try and get in between both teams.

Should be two very good semi finals and I think anyone could win it on their day. It should be a great local derby against Cas and one I think all the lads are looking forward to and hopefully we can go on to win it. Think Wensleydale might just edge it in the other game, they've been consistent all season.

The penultimate round being entertained by 2 strong teams and 2 inconsistent teams. On paper and form it should be a knotts vs Wensleydale final but I don’t think that’s going to be the case! The knotts juggernaut will come to a stop against their local rivals ca$ this weekend. Knotts are getting too big for their boots and will trip up here with ca$ “worming” their way to the win. It pains me to say this as I’m an huge fan of knotts and their style of play but the gobby ones they’ve got playing (eg the tall gormless 2nd rower) will play into ca$ hands who will be licking the refs bum all game. Hopefully I’m wrong.

Knottingley to win comfortably at witlesswood .. and Win in the final whoever the opponent .

Worms are the form side and are a ‘team’ no one will enjoy playing against them ..

Just a thought pommy ... why not copy the knottingley model if you keep losing players to league ... just a thought .

Half Hearted ....What is the Knottingley model to which you elude ???

Castleford have always had RL players and it has always been an issue of the seasons crossing at the beginning and at the end of the rugby union season. I don't think we are the only club that suffers in Yorkshire but probably suffer more than most. We are just pleased to get a team out most weeks even with the RL contingent.

Though it pains me to say it; Rugby league has more structure, better organised and any worthwhile cup competitions are played at the right end of the season.

My prediction for this afternoon....Grottingley by a mile  ;)

Windswept witlesswood win for worms ..

Beachy bending it like beckham- some kick that curvaceous effort young man
Bez having a blinder (mom for me)
Seedy n Eadesy  like Carling and Guscott but much prettier by far .

Castleford well beaten probably their mom young Egan who kept trying t get them going ....

Not a big crowd about 150 I’d guess .... decent honest game though .

Thanks for the praise Alf! Didn't think I'd get one kick today in that bloody wind but managed to sneak a few over! Personally it was a great entertaining game to play in and nip and tuck at 29-21 in the second half but we managed to pull away in the end and seal the win. Looking forward to the final now and playing Leeds must have been another great game! Should be a Corker!

Fair play to Knottla yesterday, a very well organised team whose spirit carried them throughout the game. Certainly wanted it more than Cas did and deserved the win.

They brought a few over with them as well and most stayed in the bar long after the game had finished. Good luck for the final.
