Cheers for that, mate, I hadn't seen it anywhere else.

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.

I misread your first sentence and thought (briefly!) that you meant the article was written by Gled. :blush: In my defence, he has written stuff for the Bulls' website.

He sent me a text about it, too. At 11pm last night! I am NOT leaving my nice, warm bed to investigate a text message at that time of night. No way, Jose!

BTW, Mick, if you are reading this thread, I'm setting off from Thornaby at about 3:30pm on Friday and should be passing Bradford about 5:00pm. Text me if you're going, I might be able to give you a lift.

edit: Oh yes! A good read, that! Clearly stated detail of the anti RL bias in sections of the media.

I love Wiltshire Rhino's quote!, just brilliant, :D

Found this in the Urban dictionary.

(Hope the link works!)

Might be worth rolling out a few Tshirts if anyone's interested? :huh:

I think that all clubs (i.e. Super League) should adopt that slogan - brilliant.
