Give it a rest

#3018412 Is this rugby league or rugby union? (footage from 1914-18)

Tony Collins has a bit of blind spot when he writes about the rugby codes. Not a great thing to have if you want to be considered a serious academic.

May was named the most influential player of the first round of this years six nations. He is an exceptional talent and has been playing well for us this season. I don't understand the criticism he gets when playing for England, usually from 'England' fans who don't watch the club game.

so most of them then :P

#3014279 Andy Wilson - writes something worth reading!

Not wishing to hijack this thread but...

Could be worth starting a topic entitled "journalist with no previous interest in RL writes a piece not worth wiping your behind on"

i'll start with Paul Hayward and Oliver Pickup

Well well well!


Well done Andy. I think he's done a great job here.

FWIW I think he's been very good for about a year. since we used to hammer him on here for his general dourness he's been one of our more positive outlets!

The survey does surprise me somewhat. we have low crime and i'd imagine pretty decent employment rates plus you could be in the lake district in half an hour

its still a tough working class town with all the associated problems but there are quite a few places in the UK that would make me a lot less happy

that said i don't live here (not far away), just work here!

#2905455 Cheapest way to see Catalans

Posted by Mister C on 25 March 2014 - 10:29 AM

Thanks to everyone who gave me advice. we went to the game on Saturday night. Not a bad choice :)

discovered that taxis and beer are expensive. food is reasonably priced and excellent!

but what a great weekend. we were sat outside a cafe on Saturday morning when the dragons were on their walk round town and had a chat with leon pryce

Everyone was really welcoming and the french old boys in the main stand thanked us for coming all the way from England to support Les Cats!

i'll be going back next year but i'll probably go when its a bit warmer!

#2842667 England Rugby Union

Posted by Mister C on 26 November 2013 - 08:25 AM

I grew up in the South East and had a rabid anti-RL attitude. I was also typical of the other people I played with and met as I grew up. My attitudes were not shaped by explicit indoctrination...but something a bit more powerful (I have come to realise)...inculcation. The half truths and myths about RL were constantly bandied about and repeated as truth....and it was rare I ever met anyone who contradicted this - and I certainly never read anything positive or heard anything positive about the sport other than the odd snippet that I would laugh off and deride with contempt.

There's a lot to be said for this

People who hate RL but have never seen it
People who don't read Stephen Jones et al yet bandy about the outdated RL stereotypes (2 counties and 2 states)

An ethos has been fostered which seems difficult to breakdown. A lot of people on Twitter who tweeted appreciation of the game started with "I don't normally like Rugby League but..."

Saturday was a great game, an 11 out of 10, but a lot of the things seen in that game can be seen week in week out. Yes we have some poor games but personally i think we get more than our fair share of crackers as this world cup has shown
