I was searching for something, and stumbled upon this site. Thought people might be interested in looking up old RL stories.

Just done a search for the phrase "All Golds" and turned up reports for their tour matches. LINK

From 1907

"The 'All Golds' seemed to recognise that the contest they had entered Into was going to be a hard fought one, while on the other hand their opponents, who have been dubbed the "Lily Whites," think that the affair Is hardly worthy of notice, calling the League a nine days' wonder". The 'All Golds' tonked them.

"The general opinion of members of the Metropolitan Rugby Union is that the new League will disappear like the comet". Ho ho.

Great stuff.

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.

Strange you should post this. I was in an antique shop today and found a copy of the Daily Mirror from 1938 or 39. There was a small article about how Bramley had always struggled against the odds to compete but were hoping to beat Wakey in a cup game. There was another line saying the GB RL team had beaten France in Bordeaux something like 12-3. And that was pretty much it.
Oh and it was the Northern edition.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

The images you see on this site, is what I do for a living. Not in Australia, but here in the UK. I work for a Microfilm/Document Scanning Bureau and spend my time QA'ing a lot of images from old newspapers which then are sent to be put online. Can be a pain in the ass really when dealing with 100+ year old stuff.

But the work does give me an insite into how life was in the past.

I occasionally do similar scan'n'tidy up jobs on old sheet music. Not hugely technically demanding on the whole, but always time-consuming.

Thanks mate. Found some very interesting stuff on Don Graham who played for Fev back in the early 50s.

If there's anything you like, you can save either the text or a PDF of the original article. Nice option, that.
