In Topic: Question about a Welsh RL player from the 90's

Rumour was when Wire signed Jones that they had paid a substantial fee to Hull FC for his services....

 

...after seeing him play, it was one of the less believable rumours.  You could never say though that he didn't try his best.

 

I also seem to remember that on his return to union he was sent off in one of his early games for fighting with St Helens legend Stuart Jones.

I'm having one of my more lucid moments today and I'm pretty sure it was Tees now.

 

It wasn't the classic car in your avatar pic was it?

 

Oh no, it was a far from classic Mini Metro....

Thinking back, it might have been Gary Tees not Chambers.

 

I thought it was Gary Tees.  He had spent all of the game - it was still first half IIRC - winding Jones up.  Jones lamped him, Tees fell over, got up and laughed a lot as the Welshman stalked off to the tunnel with steam emerging from under his headband.

 

I then crashed my car on the way home.

To be fair, cassoulet round these parts of S France is a bit of a hotch potch of whatever you want to throw into it.

 

Another one of the "classic" dishes that originate from the "whatever you have left in the larder" school of cooking.

 

I've seen and eaten cassoulets with chicken, duck, pork, lamb, beef?!, and all have had the beans thing in common but not much else.

Last night I went for a pave steak (can't work out how to do accents), served a point, with chips and petit pois.

 

I also made a rather lovely red wine, onion and smoked lardons gravy to go with it.

 

Same again tonight!
