Sorry but you need James Martin in that pack, probably ahead of Rick Stein. Martin never misses an opportunity to big up his professional Yorkshireman credentials, and is a big lump to boot. Stein is skinny and probably a rah-rah.

 

Good call on Michel Roux Jr in at 9 though, I see him as a sort of Ian Henderson type grub to mix it with the big boys.

 

James Martin is a big union fan, never shuts up about it.

Where are you going to be, GS? We're on the east terrace. I'll buy you a drink for your sterling efforts.

 

Sat in the East Stand, hopefully in the middle on the second row! Should be a cracking view. I'll happily enjoy a drink if you are buying. Where and when? What shall I look out for? :D

Can't have your number 11 in the team, Hock paired with alcohol only leads to problems.

They had last night's down as sold out too, seems to mean that they will not sell any more.
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

My understanding is there is a contingency plan to open the other side if needed.
