They were actually very good and played some tunes you wouldnt normally associate with an RL game, the crowd even applauded them, excellent.

Sounded brilliant last night

I hope the RFL hire you to all the England WC games!

That said, it might be cliched but I do like a bit of the Great Escape for England games, I don't know why but I do.

Like "I'm H -A-P-P-Y"? " Happy Talk" ? "Things Can Only Get Better"?

The Hawaii Five-O theme tune was great.

 

Book 'em again, Danno.

Had a "college football" feel about last night with the different songs. Sounded better than the ###### the southstand at Headingley pump out anyway.


Much better than the noise from Headingley, but still awful and intrusive. Out game generates excitement and atmosphere, why shove fake boobs and bleached hair on it?

Thanks for the positive comments guys. It was our 1st go at a big RL game so we hope we can do more. Even Larry the librarian had something positive to say :)

It came across as just ok on the telly, certainly less obtrusive as the usual Warrington or Leeds band during league games, although I don't know where they were in the ground. I heard a few renditions of Party Rock Anthem, Hawaii 5-0 and something else but I forget what it was.

 

Chase the Sun might be worth a try for the ###### up darts fans!

Was speaking to my dad on the phone yesterday and he said the band were very good and added to the atmosphere. He normally moans about drummers etc. so they must have been good!

They were in the back of the terraced stand right in the corner where Monaghan crosses for his try

The wife hated it, but I quite enjoyed it. We were diagonally opposite the band, so not at all intrusive I didn't think. The old guy sat next to us loved Hawaii 5 O judging by his "dancing".

Well speaking as a Wigan fan, and this is a popular tune with American college bands...

We seem to have lost our brass section at Odsal, we now just have a drummer with the chanting crew.

The highlight of the evening for me was getting the Wire fans singing 'No Limits" but then switching into "When the Saints" and getting a massive booooo!

also getting requests from around the stadium delivered by small boys!

A pianissimo version of "How much is that doggy in the window" also went down well!
