That Tony Hannan bloke is stirring the pot again on his blog... (when he should be busy writing his Random League column for the next issue of Rugby League World. Tut)

Squaring the family circle

They say that rugby league is a family sport. In which case, it’s probably one of those families you wouldn’t want living next door. True, if something terrible happens to ‘one of our own’, all and sundry do their bit for the cause and rally round accordingly, raising money, riding bikes, sending good wishes and so on. So a big thumbs up for that. Charity, after all, is supposed to begin at home.
But what happens when there’s a bit of inter-club disagreement? Ye Gods. All hell breaks loose. The trash comes flying out of the trailer faster than you can say ‘wanky, wanky, wanky, wanky Warrington.’

QUOTE (Tony Hannan)
For sure, rugby league is a sport that has traditionally been built and nurtured by communities, but note the plural. That, by and large, would be our community. Not your community. Your community is ######.

Love it. laugh.gif

It's not a question of coming down to earth, Mr Duxbury. Some of us, Mr Duxbury, belong in the stars.
