co-sign with terrywebbisgod. This thread is too painful.

See previous 20 threads about rubbish names and ideas for renaming Rugby League, without using the word Rugby.

#3125805 Your England team now

Posted by EastLondonMike on 20 May 2015 - 01:52 PM

Are peoples selection based on performances in SL?, or based on whether they think those players can perform and beat NZ (does that make sense?)..


Personally, i made my selections based on whether or not i think they can do the job against the NZ'ers..


I think there are plenty of players who perform in SL and look the goods, but against the kiwi's would get mangled.

yeah i was keen to get Cooper in there, and i'd definitely have him in the squad, but just couldn't find space for him ahead of Walmsley, Graham, Hill, G.Burgess.. 

#3123602 Sol Mokdad / UAE Rugby League (merged threads)

Posted by EastLondonMike on 16 May 2015 - 08:11 PM

Rugby League players should be approached, in both the NRL and Superleague, to produce a sign/ salute when a try is scored akin to the joining jack salute to raise awareness for Sol Mokdad and the disgusting behaviour of the UAE union. A few key players performing such things would soon get it exposure.

#3121357 Something to lighten the mood..

Just found this on Soundcloud.. Taking the pizz out of Ray Warren and Peter Sterling. Apologies in advance to our Kiwi brothers!..



#3120215 Can someone please get rid of the muppets running our game at the RFL!

Posted by EastLondonMike on 10 May 2015 - 06:34 AM

I find it completely ridiculous that Toulouse would even be asked to enter the lowest level of the English league. Toulouse would be fools to accept.

All the times the RFL have bent the rules or ignored certain things to allow weakly led clubs to make it to the starting post, yet when a big city club with huge potential and a good sized budget comes calling they throw up this ridiculous scenario. The game lacks leadership.

Just announce Toulouse for entry to SL in 2017 and two teams going down at the end of 2016. Fair to those two teams going down? Nope. Good for the game on a wider scale. Yes.

#3114892 Marquis player rule coming in from 2016?

Wasn't it Kris Radlinski also? when he came out of retirement and played for free, so not to break the salary cap.. and his wife became the highest paid cleaner in history.

#3113542 Australia Name Team to face NZ

Posted by EastLondonMike on 29 April 2015 - 08:00 AM

I'd be interested to hear from some of the players that switch regularly, like Uate, and find out what official process they actually go through to switch. I wouldn't be at all surprised if a lot of things were just ignored and nothing "official" actually happens.

Stand up Joey Leilua..


#3112932 It really is the RFL's fault

Posted by EastLondonMike on 27 April 2015 - 06:40 PM

The game is on the side if the refs here, it's well within their powers to do something about it whenever it happens, and I don't know a single fan who has ever disagreed with a ref marching someone for 10mins due to a bit of lip, or marching the team 10yards down the field.

The refs, for whatever reason, allow the players to get away with the odd bit of verbals. Why that is I don't know. Maybe some take a different approach to it. Who knows.

In all my time of watching the game, whenever a ref has pulled someone aside and made it clear in no uncertain terms what will happen if they continue with the verbals, you find that player generally falls in line. Unless they are complete and utter morons (which of course some are).

#3112724 England V France 24th October LSV

Posted by EastLondonMike on 27 April 2015 - 01:01 PM

These games should always be played in France.. i think only 2 out of the last 7 games the nations have played have been played in France. I guess its the RFL pushing for the game, but still..

#3111331 Sol Mokdad / UAE Rugby League (merged threads)

Posted by EastLondonMike on 24 April 2015 - 07:44 PM

Are people seriously suggesting a name change?! Laughable.

This ridiculous statement from the UAE should be ridiculed everywhere possible. As should all the instances in the numerous countries around the world where Rugby League has had to put up with prejudice and discrimination from union and it's sympathisers for far too long. The case with the UAE should be fought in the courts if need be, make the case known to the sporting world and shout about the injustice from the roof tops!..

#3099244 2/3 Apr: The Super League Match Thread (Easter Part One)

Posted by EastLondonMike on 02 April 2015 - 07:21 PM

Eddie is carrying on like someone's thrown a grenade on the pitch!.. And not a can with smoke in it (and judging by the TV pics, a can with very little smoke in it). Naturally it's the worst thing in the world that this has happened. Retirement can't come quick enough for him.

Glad the numpty responsible got slung out though.
