How dare someone satirise our sport for being M62 corridor WHICH IT CLEARLY ISN'T.

Steve Redgrave.  Now that would get bums on seats.  Him and Dwaine Chambers.

I really wish he wasn't going for all the reasons others have already articulated.


One thing I do wonder though is that as well as the immediate pay packet (which may not be that much more than at Souths) being a (potential) dual code international gives him more chance of career longevity in the sport beyond his playing days i.e. there are a limited number of coaching and media jobs in RL but many many more if you have expertise in league and union.

It would be revolutionary if they bolted a basketball hoop onto the front of the cross bar and you got 3 points for chucking the ball through it (or a thousand for drop goaling it through).  But it isn't a good idea.

#2785661 Stevo

I was standing next to him at the bar at the West Riding Refreshment Rooms in Dewsbury on Friday (at least it looked a lot like him)  and he was talking about retirement - whether his own or someone else's I couldn't say.


A man who may or may not have been Stevo was talking about his or someone else's retirement...

I feel that the media has badly let itself down here by failing to take full advantage of the puns available.

#2773575 New England Shirt

Posted by Tonka on 23 August 2013 - 09:05 AM

East London Mike's shirts are ace. I'd put him in charge of kit design for the World Cup.

It is a shame the badge is so noddy, but it's not ELM's fault.
