So I was thinking the other day, after reading the Mighty Penguins thread (gooooo Penguins) whether anyone had thought of staging a rugby league match / tournament involving members of the site? I wondered what peoples thoughts were and if anything like this had ever happened before

Just for the record I would have to sit the match out as i've never actually played rugby but would be happy to be in charge of the bucket, sponge and half time oranges (or pies etc) :)

Same here.......but age means modified rules.
Its 20 years since my last game of rugby (union) and 25 since the last proper rugby run-out.
It'd be a good social day.
I'd suggest a comp of touch rugby (so some of the ladies on the forum can be more involved) and normal rugby based on masters rules.......depending on how many were interested of course.

Have to have some sort of handicap for under 30s. I suggest that those of us over 40 get issued with tazers to help us catch the younger ones.

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

I think us over 50s should be allowed to use one of these if young'uns are playing:

I think this is how the Penguins came about, there was certainly a whole team (sheet) created on the forum. I think redditchbulldog was full-back. But that must be pushing 8-9 years ago; a new generation, new blood, same cheating Pies. :lol:

TotalRL vs RLFans at a Morrisons car park would be good, it would mean easy access to Pies and Cornettos. Steve Ganson to video ref from the roof of a trolly park and we could use "Leeds rules" and allow forward passes in the last 10 minutes when were all knackered ;)

Cross code challenge against scrum.com?
I'd find my loyalties divided though. Maybe I could be rubbish at union for one half and rubbish at league for the other

I'd play if I could have a powered wheelchair or a mini-excavator.  If we had crosscode it would be useful in the scrums.
