It's my belief that this could see the biggest improvement in attendances, column inches and standards.

It's my belief that smaller balls could produce more tries, better defence and more beautiful female supporters.


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.

I say bring back Black & White.

 

Sky should broadcast all our games in black & white only, you look at all those matches that are in black and white and the grounds are packed.

 

Black & White, its the future.

 

I think we should start a petition.

A general strike would be better than a petition. Far more tradition in a strike

Personally I would like to see a bit more biff at top level. RL was always supposed to be the toughest team sport, but it has become a tad too sanitised at top level. Fans like watching it on the whole. If the SOO can be relaxed why cant the whole game? Adrian Morley would never have been sent off in an origin game for foul in the test back in 2003. Whatever happened to the old softening up period?

The minority are very loud in there disgust that a punch should be thrown, they use words like thuggery and violence. These people have never played and can't see the wood for the frees with their argument that it puts people off watching.
It does the opposite, it gets more people watching.

As my old dad used to say, " throw the ball away and get on with the game!" But then, he was born in 1912. 

 

Of course, if players had rickets, striking at play the ball would be interesting. 

 

However, Super League is a mans game, not a thugs game. Save that for the Championship.

I've played the game, lots.  The game is tough enough without unprovoked punching.

Interestingly there seems ti be a fair bit of uproar at Gallen's actions in Origin, and the fact that he wasnt punished for the punches.
