Headingley always boasted the tallest posts in RL

I got a different view of the ground last night from Carnegie Upper, and unless Ive missed something seemed new (with little plastic pennants on top rather than the golden finnials) and seemed even bigger and wobblier than before. They are virtually as high as the stand roof

Is this the case or have I not been observant? If new, any idea how big?

Well, now they play RU there the posts are extraordinarily important.

Funny you should say that. They're identical to the ones at Hull RUFC's ground, right down to the dinky little plastic pennants on the top,

You can't have a million pound RU pitch and short ars ed RL sticks now can you.
Integrity is shown when no-one is looking.

Flipiing 'eck. The new season has started! Enough with "oo, aren't those posts tall" talk. Talk about important things like what the refs are wearing.

It's January. The weather in Leeds for the last 4 weeks has been horrific. It looked better than Saints pitch anyway.

Everton don't they? TBF I can't see any pitch in the north of England being in top condition for the next month anyway.

The new posts are satisfactorily huge. But those little flag things are totally naff and pointless.

I've always thought that about touch judges.

Indeed, presumably the old ones had to be sawn off or something.

I can't believe preseason is over and we're still getting threads about the new posts at Headingley.

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.

Seem to remember that the tallest posts in RL used to be at Station Road, Swinton - didn't they end up at Eccles ARL when the ground was demolished?
