I disagree with him out the cup format. This format generates more exciting, more even games and the best teams will still get their shot against the top sides.

Man for man, Salford should have won. Losing 2 big players leveled it a bit but Leigh looked more confident, better coached and had more ambition. As I said elsewhere, if Leigh were to win, Wakefield fans should be worried.


Also shows how good Sheffield were last week.

Last Thursday, with 10 days to go before my marathon and after 5 months of training, i got some unpleasant calf pain that isn't going away properly even with rest, massage and medication.


I'm going for a short run later to test it. I will be absolutely gutted if I can't start, or worse, finish the race. Wish me luck....

Once met, and tried to politely speak to him at Headingley, ca 87/88. One of the most toffee nosed snobs I've ever had the displeasure to meet.

Still mustn't speak ill of the dead, but must speak as you find.


Too late for that but sometimes famous people aren't that nice or are having a bad day. My dad had a similar experience with a former cricketer in the 1960s at the Scarborough festival except they were just rude. On the other hand I met Dennis Lillee when I was 14 and he was very pleasant and friendly - not what I'd been expecting!

You often hear "So-and-so was a right idiot, he wouldn't give me his autograph" - they don't say that they thrust a pen and paper in their face when they were having a private meal.

Coventry lost at Oldham (again!) but the score was less than the last two times.


It does look like they'll put up a decent show in their first year, which is good news.
