With Hull FC having Marc Sneyd injured,it may mean French half back Miloudi is recalled

from his Doncaster dual reg.


A good home attendance is the very least these players representing West Wales Raiders deserve.


The ovation given to them by the Bradford followers was beyond belief.

In the build up to this very important game,where it is hoped the magnificent show of support for the West Wales Raiders players by those magnificent Bradford fans in west Yorkshire,can be replicated by followers of the game from south and west Wales

Words From The Chairman

Some great words and passionate thoughts, nobody is critising anything that is going on, apart from a few "off field cock ups" and not having enough players on the bus.

Good luck to everybody playing for the WWR on Sunday.

BUT, as fans we have heard so much of this before over the last ten years, which is an awful long time in sport. The club in it's different guises has been around for a good while, many fans have long since stopped watching - hopefully the corner can be turned and reasonably quickly. WWR took over an established side (albeit with issues) and have had six months plus to sign players.

As has been said before it is easy to be gracious in victory, let's hope WWR can begin to inflict some defeats on clubs soon.

I simply fear what damage could be done if the thrashings are continued.

A healthy crowd at Stebonheath would be good.

WWR are +74 on skybet today so do not hold your breath for that magical corner.

It seems the longer you wait the better the handicap!

West Wales Raiders have certainly been unfortunate.

We played at Workington when there was a boost with the new head coach,and they had 3 former super League players playing,Bailey,now at Leigh,Tansey,and the David Beckham of rugby league,Jamie Foster.

For one reason or another,all 3 have not played against any other opposition and, of course,Bailey left.

Then we go to York where K.Moss,who was signed to Super League club Hull KR by former Australian national coach Tim Sheens,played very well.Unfortunate that now,if the ball is kicked dead to prevent speedy full backs running straight at you,the rule changed to a 7 tackle restart,so we couldn't slow the game down.

Then at Bradford,our restarts were all the same so it was wash,get rinsed,spin,and repeat.

Doncaster,again,have their dual reg players from Hull FC,including the mercurial,though not very well disciplined Hakim Miloudi.

Some interesting comments from the owner of Bradford Bulls.

With York apparently owned by Mark Campbell who also owns Championship club Featherstone Rovers,and with Lenagan having to sell his shares in London Broncos,then Harlequins,as he took over at Wigan Warriors,this financial input into 2 clubs is confusing

Andrew Chalmers - WWR,Bulls and other topics

Hoping for a good contest in good weather before a good crowd - and keeping Doncaster to nil so we don't have repeat restarts.

Glass half-full but the bar is still open.

I always wonder why we are not challenging for the top 3 after reading your take on the season CI; every setback is (seemingly) explainable and by implication a “one-off”. LOL

I do wonder about the continual obsession with what players other teams have or haven’t got with a greater pedigree than WWR. The competition is what it is!

You should have held on, +84 this morning

It does not bode well for the afternoon.

Well, some positives at last.

18 points scored.
The bookies handicap well beaten too.

Rogero doubles his money!

Next wek we go head to head with the Royal Wedding and the FA Cup Final (just afterwards) so it will be interesting.

I could not make yesterday's rearranged date but hope to be there for the match next Saturday.
