The Tudor House Hotel is no more

13 November 2014 - 07:36 PM

The Tudor House Hotel in Wigan has closed its doors for the last time.

 

For once its under the owners terms, Russ and Francis have retired and shut up shop.

 

A pub I never took to but I wish them all the best in their retirement, shame to lose a real ale pub aimed at the younger market but with Central Station opening in a couple of weeks and the recent addition of Docs Symposium and Blundell's Cafe Bar Wigan has more bars serving real ale opening rather than closing in the town centre.

Congratulations St.Helens

Something seems to have been lost in all the Ben Flower froth.

 

 

Congratulations to St.Helens on winning the SL Grand Final, its been a hard season for them for ever having to swap and change combinations. Well done.

 

 

Do not  bring the Flower incident into this thread.


Rugby League Heritage Hits The Road

29 September 2014 - 07:12 PM

I was privilidged to be invited to the launch of The Rugby League Heritage Roadshow today at Huddersfield University.
 
What I found intersting was that it doesn't concentrate on the stars of the game, though there are exhibits that do, but has a strong focus on the people you would not normally expect to be  in the spotlight.
 
I don't want to give to much away as the tour is starting iminantly in Hull and then on to Wakefield, keep an eye open for an exhibition visting you.
 
A few photos to give you a feel for it.

Ban The Side-Step

24 September 2014 - 10:23 PM

There have been many cases over the years of players causing themselves injury by side-stepping, they have caused themselves ligament damage and on occasions dislocations and breaks of the lower limbs by indulging in this dangerous practice.

 

One other consequence of the unexpected side-step is that it occasionally  causes the opposition defenders to misjudge their tackles. The side steppers are a danger to themselves, they confuse the opposition causing them to inflict damage on players they didn't expect to be changing direction..

 

Get rid of the dangerous practice of side-stepping I say.

 

Next we need to look at the dummy pass, they can be lethal.
