Speculative article in the Telegraph about the 2013 awards includes the following:

Sam Tomkins, Odds: 100/1
While rugby league remains a fringe sport in most of the country, a win for England in the rugby league World Cup on home soil next year would be a feat to rival any, and would see the entire game, and entire swathes of the north of England, uniting around the star man. At the moment, that could be veteran Kevin Sinfield or exciting young Wigan fullback Tomkins, a star of his own sport and beginning to attract some admirers in the world of union too.

The bit in bold showing exactly how much the author knows about Rugby League. ;)

The difference is quite droll:
The optimist sees the doughnut,
The pessimist sees the hole.

I like how RL fans are now so down on the game that they can't even be arsed to argue that we deserved some coverage for this season.

I also like Kenny's tantrum.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

so a few people wish the Ryder cup team had won and it gets sensationalised on the TotalRL forum - what a shock

There really are some right miserable b*stards on here nowadays - it's pathetic.

Weren't you on a golf course when I phoned you last?

I think it was expected, in this of all years. There was so much Olympic and Paralympic stuff to cover, a lot of sports got dealt with rather briefly.

Much bitching and whining on twitter, from indignant golfoids who can't understand why they don't get all the awards every year. :D

I was indeed yes
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 think we need a catchier title.
