Doncaster in financial fix
Friday 05 June 2009
Doncaster have gone into administration and face a points deduction that will doom them to relegation. Promoted under the coaching of Ellery Hanley, who immediately resigned because of cash difficulties, they are already bottom of the Co-Operative Championship. Almost half of their first team have left over the last couple of weeks and there is no sign at the moment of a financial rescue.
The Widnes coach, Paul Cullen, has banned his players from using the leisure facilities at the Halton Stadium, claiming that they have become "soft around the edges." Widnes lost in the Championship for the sixth time this season at lowly Batley on Sunday. "They have started to think they are Super League players, so I've stopped the lot," Cullen said.
The former Leeds utility player, Jordan Tansey, is cutting short his foray in Australia with the Sydney Roosters to join Hull next season. Tansey, who is in the first year of a two-year contract, is Hull's third big signing for next season, along with his Roosters team-mate Craig Fitzgibbon and Sean Long, who will play against them for his current club, St Helens, tonight.
