On Sunday, I'll be flying out to the South Atlantic for a six month tour in the Falkland Islands. I am hoping to get an internet gateway account whilst down there so should hopefully be able to keep up with the RL news on here from time to time. But if not, I wish everyone on here and the other forums the best of luck for the next six months and I'll look forward to a bit of debate when I get back...

Best of luck big fella. Absolute hovel down there so here's to hoping you get some Internet to pass the time!
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.

I hope, for everyone's sake, it's a peaceful and uninteresting six months down there.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

All the best, I'd say 'have fun' but not sure it's appropriate. :)

Any chance of taking Abu Hamza with you?

He's not wanted here and he's not keen on moving to the USA.

Then, if things get hairy, you could offer him to the Argies as a hostage.

Have a good tour and make the most of the experience ... countryside, wildlife, seas etc. Keep safe.

At least you're going to be there for summer. You might be able to take your coat off!

I'd love to read your impressions of the place and life out there

I hope all goes well down there.

Any chance of taking RONNIE LAUGHTON with you?

He's not wanted here and he's not keen on moving to the USA.

Then, if things get hairy, you could offer him to the Argies as a hostage.


& at the end of your tour you can leave him there to referee penguin Rugby League, as thats about all he's fit for.




Hey, we wanna see some photos too

Yo puedo hablar castellano y por eso, pienso que ire a Chile en mi vacaciones cuando tengo tiempo... ;)

Thanks for all the messages folks. Flying tomorrow evening and looking forward to the six months away; hopefully a trip to South Georgia is a possibility too. Hopefully keep in touch and post some pictures of the islands/widlife on here.

All the best!

Mike

I read, a while back, that the Falkland Islands had the largest ratio of sheep to humans of any place on Earth.

Just thought it might be worth mentioning.

                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.
