Much appreciated, it hasn't been easy but so far I've got away with it, or at least haven't imposed on Her Maj's hospitality. My strine-ness has had the effect however of disabusing me of the notion that inzidders are super human or indeed remarkable in any way excipt un their cesual dusregaird for vowel prerninciation convuntions.


Take it then that 'IGGS' and bacon isn't a favourite of yours :rolleyes: either?

Good stuff!

There are plenty of RU bigots in this country - plenty of room for more RL bigots, like me!

Very positive. Interesting that he says RU coaches are now looking at RL attacking moves as well as defence.

I think if you're a unionite under 50 then you actually like League.

We need these rebuttals in our world cup year as i fear we will be a major target come October!

Well in Nigel

That article is much worst than what Jones is claimed to have said about the respective international profiles of RU in comparison with other codes of football (which I might add is true). This guy is a bit of a fool if he thinks the 6N games from last weekend were dull.

Look at the date of the posting Sev it was before last weekends games?

One article, ok a bit in the Jones stylee, but RL has about 1,000 more articles like this to write to get parity in the last decade.

Simon Barnes anyone? Another one who predicted the death of League before now once union went more honest

Fair enough, but last weekends games ad many more like them just goes to show this guy is talking rubbish. He does seem to be the RL version of SJ but a lot less subtle and writing for a tabloid.

Trouble is Sev, as far as the 6N goes, last weekend was exceptional.
'Many more like them'.........Hmmm, its like saying there are many more Darren Lockyers in every NW Counties team.

Simon Barnes likes RL and thinks RU is a dull penalty fest.

Fair enough Severus but last year's 6N was pretty turgid with few tries scored and many really scrappy games.

What an angry little fellow that journo is, it's good to see RL now has it's own version of Stephen Jones.

A cross publication/code spat between a couple of idiots, how refreshing...

Whereas Jones is an obvious paragon of virtue in his honest and factual assessment of League. Remember, this guy was just responding to yet more rubbish written by Jones on League, whichJones has been doing for literally decades unchallenged. Also, not sure where you are coming from with the broadsheet v tabloid snobbery :huh:

Maybe he's angry over the number of years Jones got to trash RL. I doubt the balance is anywhere close to even just yet.

I agree that Joes writes rubbish. But to be fair to him, his statement on the state of international RU verses other football codes he mentioned was correct.
