    Only problem them t***s at rfl have deducted Cougars twelve points. That’s after they approved dodgy Austria Holdings to take over Cougars last year.

    Not a big rugby fan by any means. Always look at results, but never interested enough to attend any matches.

    Always had a soft spot for Keighley rather than Bradford Northern growing up. Being brought up in Idle, had a closer affinity to the Aire Valley rather than South Bradford

    I have supported Cougars many years with many ups and downs just like we have suffered with City
    The problem recently being the owners Austria Holdings and the R.F.L actually allowing them to take over the club.
    Moving on though the new consortium is a great choice for the fans. Mick O'Neil being the main guy back in the Cougarmania days
    Some of you guys may know Mick from his dj days at the Heartbeat . Hopefully then we are Moving on up

    Mick O'Neil was the first to bring the razzmatazz to rugby league. "Ladies and gentlemen its cougar feeding time." Great to see him back involved.

    When its played well rugby league is a far better sport to watch than football. I can be bored to tears at times watching football, never really got that rugby league, you get dull games but theres always something going on. Not as exciting as it used to be though.

Mick O’Neil the new owner is doing tremendous behind the scenes strengthening the squad and getting back into the community. The Rugby League Community are also helping the club with Bulls and Leeds offering players on loan “marching on together “ Nothing really from the R.F.L except the 12 point deduction

    The red one reminds me of the 'magnet' sponsored kit of the nineties. As for the RFL, don't get me started. Worse than MPs.

    Yeah Roger The Cougarmania days when Mick O’Neil first took over. The White kit is A tribute to Danny Jones. Ex player Phil Stephenson who suffers from m.n.d as been made honorary president. Mick coming back as really pulled the club together.

    Fellow Keighley fan here. I haven’t been down to as many matches as I used to as I’ve been studying at York for the past few years. I used to get to most home matches before.

    I’m just glad that the club is still in existence and I’m glad that those crooks who had ownership of the club have gone.

    The new kits are excellent. I don’t always buy the shirts, but I’m certainly tempted by these two.

    5403D372-B5DD-4E87-A4E8-3A35ACCFCB49.jpeg Maybe not the level of our beloved City. A club that as been through the problems of ownership and lack of support by RFL. Today beat the top off the league 40-8 . The backing is from local support and new owners with an history within the club. The performance by the team was with passion and guts .
    Unfortunately we miss this at VP. Cougars are back

    I’m really looking forward to it.

    It’s going to be live on BBC too.

    I’m not expecting a win but I’d just like the players to put up a good fight and not have a humiliating defeat.

    I’ll be moving back home next week so I’ll be free to attend matches more regularly than I have been doing for the past few years.

    Mick O’Neil and family are doing a great job creating quite a buzz around town and a few more sponsors coming on board.
    The Bulls game should get a good crowd down I am sure the lads will put the effort in. I have mates coming over from Wakefield should be a good day out evan the Keighley Whites will be behind the Cougars
