#3167348 Rumourville: London Broncos to move again

Posted by EastLondonMike on Today, 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.

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.

#3153594 Chris Sandow to Warrington

Posted by EastLondonMike on 06 July 2015 - 12:41 PM

This one could go either way for Warrington.. Awesome player on his day and when he wants to play, but completely frustrating when he's not interested. Hope no one introduces him to pies while he's over here also..

#3151798 Hardaker commits long-term future to Leeds

Posted by EastLondonMike on 03 July 2015 - 11:47 AM

I think Hardaker's chance's of playing for England with McNamara in charge are zero. But in the absence of an outstanding half back i'd be happy enough with Tomkins and Widdop at half back and Hardaker at Full back.


Though due to previous indescretions i think Hardaker would have to be playing absolutely amazing rugby to get in ahead of Tomkins, regardless of Tomkins form being good or bad.

#3150448 New England RL kit launch

Posted by EastLondonMike on 01 July 2015 - 08:59 AM

Hardcore RL fans know about the launch.. No one else, I'd imagine a lot of less hardcore fans who attend games regularly didn't know much about this launch.

There was no real build up, other than some tweets, no teasers, no push in the media (even the RL press), it was just very low key.

Bang the drum for christs sake! Let's make some noise about the new kit launch and the link up with BLK, and continue to bang that drum now and up until we play the kiwis in November.

Thats a fine looking website with an exceptional array of articles... must be a reliable and trustworthy resource.

#3138166 Wigan Warriors to play home games in London (merged)

Posted by EastLondonMike on 10 June 2015 - 02:26 PM

Wigan V Catalans might well be an idea.. They may well bring more fans over when there's the possibility of a trip to London to play a team like Wigan, and with the multi-cultural nature of London might attract a few expat French too.. throw in the European nature of such a fixture. I think i'd be more inclined to want to go watch Wigan v Catalan over any other team other than Leeds/Warrington/Saints.. but thats just me of course..

Send everything down Kieron Dixons wing and they'll score all night. Like having a school boy in defence.

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.
