i've been out today and frankly it's horrible. Some of our lads have been playing winter and they and their parents can't wait for the summer season.

How on earth juniors can develop any core skills on a day like today is anyone's guess.

Popped out to watch an U17s match today. Freezing and rain slating down. Players slipping and sliding. Credit to the players for sticking with it, but it wasn't much fun for anyone really.

Strangely the other code has many times the number of players who love to play in the winter, I wonder if their kids are just tougher.


I went to the warm Hilton Hotel, Leeds today to watch the son-in-law fight (Thai) it cost me £50.00 in total, it worked out to about £1 per second.

Wonder if they would have even more if they played in the summer. LOL You should go watch a NCL game in the warm summer months £2.50 that works out about 3p per Minute far better value.

I do go and watch games in the summer and I suppose it was worth watching the son-in-law knock his opponent out in 50 seconds.

You must be joking, did rugby league survive around 100 years in the winter without anyone enjoying the sport.

Winter rugby was great back in the day, but life moves on and it's summer all the way.

Imagine if in 1895 they had internet forums.............rugby league would not exist!
