That was the 2018 season that was..

The 2018 season has finally finished. It has been a long and difficult season for the West Wales Raiders who took over the club in the middle of the previous season - 2017. The results and some of the performances on the field were not what was expected and some of the off field problems too show what a tough sport Rugby League is. It would serve no purpose to discuss what has been talked about before, suffice to say everybody in South and West Wales hopes that 2019 will be  a great deal better than the dreadful season which has just closed. The facts are as follows:

The West Wales Raiders were beaten in every single match they played. Many clubs recorded their record all time scores in matches against the Raiders, and world record results were recorded for competitive fixtures at home and away. The average score was 81 v 7.

I think there are actually more records on there than have been highlighted BUT enough is enough.

Let us hope the close season does not see a player announced every day....

And then most of them have all but disappeared.

Fans want a competitive squad and sensible positive words. Too much hype and not enough substance only breeds dissatisfaction.

Couldn't agree more. Less time on a prolonged announcement and more time on a stable squad please.

Nothing more to say on the 2018 season.

The words from Kim Williams are encouraging especially the bit about bringing players with him which should bring experience that was/is sorely needed.

2019 season is looking up based on what Kim has said,

It would, frankly, be hard to be looking down!
