Wow.... Which (un?)lucky club has lost your support?


I was only joking

#2996452 James Roby's stats

Yep - you can't just credit one-on-one tackles if you think about it.


But I think being "involved in" 65 tackles speaks for itself.

#2996443 James Roby's stats

Posted by Tonka on 16 September 2014 - 08:20 AM

I have just read James Roby's stats for the Huddersfield game (and his ranking in the team). 


Tackles - 65 (1st)

Carries - 27 (1st)

Metres - 184 (1st)

Offloads - 2 (joint 1st)

Kicks - 5 (2nd)

Passes - 105 (1st)


Only negatives are 2 missed tackles and 1 penalty conceded (shame on him). 


I think the tackles equal Steele Retchless's efforts from (1997?), which I believe are still the record.


You might argue that he of course gets more passes away as hooker - and indeed that stats aren't everything - but has anyone seen these beaten?

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.

That was easy - keep em coming.

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 seems you can't ask rugby league fans anything without getting into a debate about restructuring...

There are many man-made mysteries that cannot be explained away: Stonehenge, the Atacama Desert Symbols, and the fact this thread has reached 8 pages, amongst them.


I thought that myself, although here I am again, helping it through its 9th...
