On Super League Backchat last week, the group were discussing their highlights of the 2012 season.

What would you say is the best/most memorable moment of this season, either on or off the field?

Gareth O'Brien try versus Leeds IIRC

Unbelievable try! If that was an Aussie or Sam we'd never forget about it - do you remember it??

My personal highlight was seeing my son walk out onto the Headingley pitch with Jamie Lyon at the WCC.
Ryan Halls try v Widnes at Headingley was pretty special too.

Nope.

Will be in the Cross Keys in my Primrose and Blue.

Next time I've got a stop over in hull with work I hope I'm allowed back in.

The obvious one is the cup final win, but I loved the last gasp Catalans try at St Helens. That was breathless stuff that had us all screaming with excitement at the telly. Apologies to our Saints friends on here, obviously. :-)

Tom Briscoe cutting through the middle of the Leeds defence was a highlight for me - strength & pace, a great try. :)

Featherstone knocking Cas out of the RL Cup was the finest moment of the last 16 years let alone 2012

Cas nearly beating Saints is as good as it got for us really
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

The whole of Magic Weekend sticks in my mind - two fantastic days in a fabulous stadium - great action - and it coincided with our "Summer" too..

Also enjoyed the Championship finals day - particularly Sheffield Eagles taking the trophy and "That Try" along the way - top drawer handling skills.. Pity I paid for a "good seat" and got soaked to the skin :angry:

Genuinely struggling.

I don't know whether I'm believing the pessimism that some say it hasn't been a great year, or the stuff that's happened away from rugby since May has dulled my enjoyment, but there's nothing yet that's sprung to mind.

On Odsal Top baht 'at.

Indeed - he set the benchmark for pirates - his Har harrrgh copied but never bettered ;)

As an aside, if anyone bumps into 20 pirates at the GF, it's likely to be my group :)
