The emergence of so many impressive youngsters and the improvement of others.

Alex Walmsley, Marc Sneyd, and Tom Lineham come to mind while players like Elliott Whitehead, Matty Smith and Brett Ferres could push for International selection if they keep up there good form.

It is the highest level of the Greatest Game in this country and should be appreciated as such.

The tries, even when being scored against your own team there are tries scored in every single game that take your breath away for the pace, skill, power and teamwork needed to score them

Other sports would explode in hyperbole at them, but to us they are run of the mill.

Nonsense. ALL passes are forward, and any game that isn't a blowout is decided by the referee ;)

It produces a high-percentage of entertaining matches. Far more regularly than any of the other big sports that I know.

It's constant attempts to adapt to change for the sake of improvement and not just sit twiddling their thumbs like other sports.

I knew you'd come around to the new advantage rule.

It is of course the rivalries, the growing tension between supporters as the season goes on (hi EW) and the abrupt, cut-throat final months of the season with trophies won, reputations created and destroyed, history made.

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.

Yes. I can't ever remember being bored at a game, unlike soccer/cricket/union (even when I've been playing!).

Definitely! +1

The fact that not every game is a foregone conclusion.
Plus the fact it racks off holier than thou Fev supporters who make out they are the only true fans of RL. :ph34r:

When a match is played at a packed ground and the two teams are of an equal standard, nothing touches it.
