That Was The Week That Was - 7th March

KFC Fan?
by Andy Gilderdale

In the latest installment of our brand new weekly feature for the 2005 season, Andy Gilderdale takes another sideways look at the wonderful world of Rugby League.

Each monday, Andy will review the previous weeks news and try to expose the truth behind the headlines.

In a week which saw London hauled back from the brink, and then travel to Odsal to face one of the sides that voted for their demise, what would Andy focus on?


Following the audacious bid by Bradford Bulls to sign the injured Matt Diskin, other clubs in Super League are bracing themselves for approaches from Odsal for their top stars. Next on Brian Noble’s shopping list is believed to be current GB skipper Andy Farrell and his Wigan team-mate Luke Davico, closely followed by Warren Jowitt and Toa Kohe-Love.


Wigan coach Dennis Betts rues the disruption caused by the club’s current injury crisis. “I’ve got 8 senior professionals injured, and only 7 turned up for training today, but rugby these days is a 17-man game so I’m sure we’ll be OK”.

Leigh look to bolster their squad with a couple of additions, following a disappointing start to the their first season in Super League. Their options are likely to be reduced however by the little known “Abram” quota, which restricts the club to no more than five players born more than 10 miles away from the M62.


An announcement on the way forward for London Broncos is due to be made after a meeting of Super League clubs tomorrow, following discussions between Broncos representatives and the Rugby Football League today. The RFL is thought to favour stepping in and taking over the running of the financially stricken club, much as they did with great success previously in Paris.


Warrington Wolves coach Paul Cullen appears to blame his side’s defensive frailties for their late defeat to St Helens. “Our attitudinal and techniquological approachment to the performance of our execution of defensivity was insufficiable for winningful performances”, he explained helpfully.


Leigh make good on their statement from earlier in the week, adding former Saints and Samoan RU winger Dom Feaunati to their squad for the rest of the season. The management of the Leigh branch of KFC are quick to point out that the C in their name stands for Chicken, not Children.


London Broncos Chief Executive Nic Cartwright defends the make-up of the Broncos team at Odsal today in the post-match press conference. “The fact that two thirds of our team were from down under accurately reflects the local population”, said Cartwright, “or at least it would if we were based in Earls Court”.
