Fans were treated to an insight into the thoughts of players Joel Monaghan, Trent Waterhouse, Stefan Ratchford, Chris Hill and Rhys Evans at a Forum hosted by Graham Lovett at the Halliwell Jones stadium.
The panel and fans were in good spirits following the win at Wigan. The players gave amusing and candid updates on various topics including the salary cap, video referees, the I pitch at Widnes and pre season training in Australia.
Trent Waterhouse or ‘House’ said he and his family are settling in well and he is enjoying the Super League experience.
Stefan Ratchford is obviously the joker and revealed he had attended 6 games of rugby the previous weekend presumably to occupy his time while he recovers from his recent shoulder operation.
Chris Hill enthused about his chance to play for the Wolves and thoroughly enjoyed his first experience at the DW stadium.
Joel Monaghan spoke about how noisy the crowds are over here compared with Australia.
Rhys Evans hopes to be back to full fitness soon after a freak training accident has restricted his games so far this season.
The draw for the Challenge Cup took place during the forum and the away tie at Keighley was agreed to be satisfactory in as much we had avoided another Super League team at this stage.
Our thanks go to everyone who attended the event, the fans, the players and to Graham Lovett for hosting the whole event in his usual very professional manner. Thanks also to Karl Fitzpatrick and Debbie Blackburn for the player appearances.
The winner of the draw for Supporters’ Trust Gold Members was Kate Yuile. Kate wins hospitality for 2 at a Super League fixture.
