I take it all back about BBCs bias against RL. I thought the coverage was spot on today and so refreshing not to listen to Stevo and Hemmings rattling on. I'm looking forward to the WC coverage in Oct & Nov.

I'm watching the red button now.

Lengthy discussion on the red button regarding the new SL and Ch proposals. It involved comments from Nigel Wood. It lasted about 1/2 an hour. Did anyone else see  it.

Really enjoyed that game, very entertaining :)

Question should Danny MaGuire have also walked (as the Hudds lad did for punching) for his punching after taking umbrage of being held up on the line ?

I agree the BBC were absolutely fantastic today. Did watch the extended forum on the red button it was quite an interesting watch. I think the RFL chairman made sense in what he was saying for the need of a restructure. There is to many meaningless games in RL which I believe the new structure is addressing. I honestly don't understand why the proposal with the 3 8's has got so much negativity. I think it's quite good and would work in RL.

I think they said Cudjoe put a knee into McGuire's face, and it wasn't sustained punching as it was in Wardle's case - might explain the card/ no card scenario!

Great coverage and excellent discussion on the new league structure. The more I think about the favoured proposal the more I like it!

Having watched and thoroughly enjoyed BBC's coverage together with Eorl Crabtree's performance and others mind, I'm very seriously thinking about going to the Millennium Stadium for the opening day match-up against the Aussies. 

 

The Burgess brothers have both been outstanding for the Rabbits so far.  James Graham has just returned from injury with the Dogs so I am more optimistic about running the Kangaroos close this time.

 

Would love to see Lunt given the 9 shirt.

Totally agree about Lunt & Crabtree. Never seen Leeds make so many mistakes. Particularly Sinfield & Burrow.

I'd thought Graham was banned for allegedly biting Slater in the GF. Completely agree with everything else though.

He's back now.  Dogs were sat near the  bottom of the pile until Graham returned.  They are a different team when he's on the park.#
