Always a few missing. Still plenty of experience in that line up of yours, expect you to be challenging at the top of the league for sure :) Scorpions down to their last 16 players I heard too

Indeed, spoke at length with Mike Grady before the game, he'd drafted in three or four Welsh academy guys to bolster numbers. Scorpions gave it a good go in poor conditions, but lacked that last killer pass or a short kicking game to make defenders turn and think. But they have some big lads in there (Alex Murphy said: 'give me a lad who's six foot two and fourteen stone and I'll turn him into a Rugby League player') and lots of enthusiasm, so a good foundation to build on for the club and South Wales.

I think that's almost certainly true. Tricky though - we wanted more fixtures, and they've certainly given us more fixtures. Even as a STH though I had no problem whatsoever with the idea of not going to watch on Saturday. I'm waiting for the league proper to start in April.

We had quite a few regular faces missing yesterday -  on what was a freezing, wet and horrible afternoon. Looking at the attendances, I'd assume that many of the travelling sides didn't take many with them. Especially as - unlike the N. Rail Cup - you lose the game and you're done.

Glad to see that TLCRF80mins has reigned in the Welsh stereotypes and there is no ###### take of the Welsh Language and its resulted in an decent, well written article rather than the drivel we were presented with in the Hornets programme last season. A much improved blog - even allowing for your Google Translate warning!


It didn't need improving - it's perfect as it is.

Yeah they only make the BP retro Jersey. Size L or XL but he wanted it for display really. Well he doesn't know I'm looking for him anyway. So I Was hoping to find a original good fellows Jersey. Thanks for your help. Hopefully something may pop up somewhere., cheers, Jarred

Drop 'em a line. They do a good selection of retro jerseys at their factory shop at St Peters in Sydney and might be able to help. Any RL fans heading to Sydney, check out their factory shop - it's like an Aladdin's Cave of RL Jersey wonder.
