We are all purchasng our own tickets so we can sit where we like, cheap seats or executive, whatever your choice.

Whether you want to join in and attend any meet ups is entirely up to you of course, but the more the merrier

Couldn't you have picked a game that was a bit more convenient for you Mags?  :tongue:

I suppose it wouldn't hurt to pin this thing... :)


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

What are the Mighty Penguins? Despite being on the board for a decade and hearing them mentioned numerous times, I've never actually asked what it is. Is it like some made up joke team or something?

No, it's not a reference to Featherstone Rovers!

You, of all people, should be aware that all teams in black and white tend to be mighty.

Ah, but The Mighty Penguin shirt is a paleish blue, very similar to the NSW Origin kit. :rolleyes:

Is it an away kit then? Do they play some games in the Arctic?

 

I have seen a MP shirt, of the colour you describe actually.

 

It was being worn by John M as he strode down Rose Street in Edinburgh during the Magic weekend a few years since.

 

Quite magnificent he looked in it too.

I've seen the FB conversation, thanks to whoever added me in. Not sure whether I'll be at the game but, if I am, will come along.

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.

It will be even more magnificent ..and even more skin tight (as it has shrunk in the wash, honest!) this time round! What is Huddersfield's equivalent to Rose Street?

And if he does go, Browny is always obliging to get a free round in...! Very generous chap.

 

 

 

 

Someone on TRL past or present must know someone who runs a pub in Huddersfield, can't we commandeer a boozer for the millions, or should that be minions, to descend upon?!

Ha ha, I'm a deserter!!  My first post back on here for many a year - but looking forward to catching up with everyone in Huddersfield, it's been quite a long time since the TRL forum members got together.

I think that life just sometimes takes over and the forum got to be the least of my priorities, and the arrival of Facebook meant I could still be in some contact with some of the TRL'ers but no need to post as much on here.  

 

I do miss posting on here, we used to have some good discussions and good laughs.
