#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.

#3125197 Your England team now

Posted by EastLondonMike on 19 May 2015 - 12:37 PM

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.
