#3179988 Eng V NZ Olympic Park tickets

Posted by EastLondonMike on 21 August 2015 - 07:56 AM

for that more relaxed drinking-in-a-70s-shopping-centre vibe head to the Langthorne

Can't mention The Longthorne without mentioning The Goose..

Barely touched him. Try for me.

If the 'bomb' was banned, some clubs would never kick the ball inside the opposition half..

#3175727 News on Broncos move to Trailfinders

Posted by EastLondonMike on 13 August 2015 - 08:08 PM

I think capacity of the place is pretty irrelevent at the moment, seeing as the Bronco's will be lucky to fill what space there currently is there. Its a three year deal currently (i believe), and its going to take more than 3 years to get the Bronco's to a position where they are genuinely pushing the capacity limit. This move gives them a few years to try and turn a pound or two.. It does show a lack of ambition to a degree, compared to other clubs maybe. But at the moment their only ambitions in the short term should be stability and a couple of proper revenue streams, then off the back of any success there, they can look to move up another step on the ladder.

#3174227 Super 8s - a joke

Posted by EastLondonMike on 11 August 2015 - 07:34 AM

Supporters support their teams through thick and thin. Thats the idea of being a genuine supporter. Not just when theres a chance of making a play-off etc. Though i do agree that the Super 8 system won't always guarantee that every second counts, but thats no reason for fans not to go watch the teams.. just because they can't make the play-offs.

Good figures. You'd imagine with that kind of number it would be quite high up on the BBC2 Top 10 for that week.. 


#3169496 Zac Hardaker in the box seat for England full-back

Posted by EastLondonMike on 01 August 2015 - 08:28 PM

Tomkins should only be considered in the half back role if he begins to play that role consistently at the Warriors/Wigan.

With Shaun Johnson's injury you'd think Tomkins would be pushed into the halves at the Warriors (if it was a role he wants or considered a good option for), but it seems Andrew McFadden prefers Lolohea to Tomkins as a half. Worth keeping in mind.

Cue posts complaining about the size/price/filling/lack of peas/location/murderous intent of the shop owners and their pies.

#3167735 Wigan-Catalans in London

Posted by EastLondonMike on 30 July 2015 - 08:01 AM

Jesus christ, listen to some of you!.. You'd think gangs of blood thirsty youths were laying in wait around the local train stations for hordes of naive northerners to come along waving money and their jewellery in the air!

There are plenty of rough parts of London, but none are any rougher than parts of Manchester or Leeds or Bristol or Hull or Cardiff.. or anywhere else in the UK..


I can't actually believe people are worrying for their safety.

Christ, if people think Millwall is bad now, you should have seen it back in the late 80's/early 90's!..

It will be fine, no one will get mugged.

#3167436 Wigan-Catalans in London

Posted by EastLondonMike on 29 July 2015 - 12:32 PM

despite it being in enemy territory, i cant wait for this. Be interesting to see how Wigan promote this in London, and to what level, in comparison with other games of RL that are played regularly in London.


Nice little graphic advertising the game up on the wigan website. Sarginson and Mcilorum taking out Big Ben.



#3167348 Rumourville: London Broncos to move again

Posted by EastLondonMike on 29 July 2015 - 10:43 AM

I know its all irrelevant now, with everything being announced, but would it have been worth the RFL, Wigan and the Bronco's sitting down at the start of the Wigan/Catalan idea and having the Bronco's play their home Super8 game against Workington as a curtain raiser at the Den also?.. instead of a day later..

#3164857 Bad news: Shaun Johnson's season over

Posted by EastLondonMike on 26 July 2015 - 11:37 AM

Shaun Johnson is a match winner. And sad that a talent like him won't be playing in the end of season tests, and it does weaken the kiwis. BUT.. There us no way in the world this is going to be a series that England will definitely win just because he is no longer available.

Please forget this "London is a rugby union city" idea, it never was and never has been.

There are still huge opportunities in London for a rugby league team, just needs the correct level of investment and knowledge.


Posted by EastLondonMike on 14 July 2015 - 09:58 AM

The RFL should commit to playing a two game series in France every year for the foreseeable. Would benefit everyone involved much more than what we currently have.
