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

Some people just don't know how to have a good time.

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


They're there to indicate the wind direction.

I thought it was a nice piece of trivia, hadnt realized that at the stroke of the new season kick off this forum turned into Newsnight

Ill put it down to Warrington Post Envy Syndrome

Over two hours since this was posted....

Come on you lot, you're letting me down.


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

I was thinking more of Galpharm references but hey, ho.

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?

Bejeezus. :blink:

They must have used some impressive explosives.

As a Swinton fan of may years standing (we were poor and I could only just afford the 5/- to get in the ground) I can assure you that having the tallest posts was for many years the best thing about Station Road. :o .

Yeah I guessed. Still, annoying and pointless though. Annoying because they look ######. Pointless because the only benefit might be to kickers and Kevin Sinfield does not need little flaggy things to assist him on that score B)

Think the posts were donated to Eccles but seem to remember them being damaged by vandals

I am sure I was told/read the Headingley posts were donated to Drighlington rugby club.

I still remember when we were all amateurs, working together for the good of the game - for no pay!!!

it seems to be a rah rah thing, the posts at the stoop have those little flags on top as well.
