#3260386 time to move on, cant wait to see him back playing!

It's also good that he doesn't have any hatred towards anyone for what he did.......

#3247066 ferres and O'Loughlin to widnes

Wow, look at the beautiful, flowing locks he had as a kid.

Hand off to the face - looks like he was practising for Wigan early 😉

#3246053 Manchester Rangers

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 12 December 2015 - 10:56 AM

Both teams/clubs on Saturday at Widnes look quality, both on and off the field.

I don't know how I missed this topic before!

I agree with this statement (and only partly because I helped set up Chester Gladiators ;-) )

Both teams are doing so much to reach their ambitions. Chesters aim is to have more people playing RL in the (often ignored) area and can now proudly boast 2 senior teams, junior teams and even very popular minis sessions. This year they have also ran Street RL sessions which are free Friday night sessions which saw over 50 young people attending over the period of the course. None of which would be possible without the dedicated team of coaches who are all working with the same aim.

Having had no previous experience of amateur RL till Gladiators was formed I can honestly say I didn't know just how many good people we have in our sport, so when people tell me our sport is dieing I know that's not true - there are just too many people who won't let that happen.

I wish Mancheter Rangers every success, and Mancunions too in fulfilling their ambitions.

#3197216 20 Sept: Qualifiers - Widnes Vikings v Salford Red Devils KO 3pm

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 20 September 2015 - 09:32 PM

I'm glad Salford are safe. It's right that it's Wakefield in the million pound game after the way they just gave up on the season a few weeks in.

I also think that as HKR and Salford are safe they should have fun next week - chuck it around and not worry about the completion rate, just entertain their fans :-)

#3155091 Married life...

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 09 July 2015 - 12:59 AM

Wedding day advice rather marriage advice...!

At some point in the day take yourselves off for a break, just you two, so you can Kiss without someone prompting you to and smile at each other with genuine smiles and not because a photographer has told you to!

#3146289 Koukash plans more signings and says 'Will reveal all next Tuesday'

He did refer to the reputational damage, and that's why he's taking legal action. To have gone off the way that he did (and very publicly), you have to believe (or, at least, hope) he's sure of his case.

I hope he is sure, but its not the first time he has gone public with possible legal action that's come to nothing.

#3127493 Women’s RL: Oulton Raidettes the team to beat

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 23 May 2015 - 10:07 AM

It's a shame the way the Women and girls game has deteriated over the years. You'd think with the cuts in Sports England funding the RFL would be doing everything they can to promote the game to try and get some of the funding back.

My daughter has been playing since U12's. When she started there were organised games every other week - it was a festival format but that didn't matter. In the off season there were organised North West v Yorkshire games from u14's upwards with regular training for those girls lucky enough to be selected.

Fast forward to now - U12's has been scrapped (girls have to stop playing with boys at 11 so where so they go while they wait to be old enough..??), North West played Yorkshire in October with a team that was put together the weekend before and had 1 mid week training session. The girls were told there would be another game in April - it's now nearly June.....

My daughter (now U17's) has yet to play this year even though the season usually start in March as the RFL have told the NW girls league to 'just sort friendlys out between yourselves'. Wigan St Jude are currently playing in the Yorkshire league just to get games. Girls are getting sick of training and not playing so are dropping off to other sports. Worrying for the future.

#3124505 Sensation on the books?

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 18 May 2015 - 08:24 AM

As a Widnes fan, I can honestly say the better team lost yesterday. Had the clock had an extra minute on it I believe you would have won.

You were suberb across the board, and I was genuinely suprised when our Brown was named MOM and not yours...!

Best of luck for the rest if the season - even though yesterday didn't give you the win, I hope it can at least give your team the belief that they are better than their league position suggests and send you on a great run now.

#3123370 Wigan v Hull KR RL Cup Round 6 K.O. 8pm (Sky TV)

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 16 May 2015 - 12:35 PM

I didn't see the game last night, anyone got a clip of the MMac/Farrell incident? I don't like to see any player suffer an injury but I really feel I'm missing out not having seen it!!

(Also, how will I know if I'm outraged at people enjoying it or not if I haven't seen it)

#3117513 3 May: Warrington Wolves v Widnes Vikings KO 3.00pm

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 05 May 2015 - 06:07 PM

To the Wire fans that left with 3 mins to go- it was your loss. Staying to the end made it into a memorable match. So glad that Wire have realised that 'it ain't over 'til it's over'. This one goes a small way to salving all the recent last minute wins by Wigan against us. Footnote on the refereeing though- I normally rant at the ref in real time usually to see that they were right in the video replay. I did have a couple of rants from the stand yesterday and I'd like to see the video replays to see if they were justified rants or not. Interestingly both Smith and Betts have commented on a couple of the try decisions.

I haven't seen any video footage from Sundays game but there were some things I'd like to see again.

From where I was stood:

Browns 2nd try was given but looked like it should have been disallowed.

Owens 2nd try was disallowed but looked like it should have been given.

Westwood's try shouldn't have been, Ormsby knocked on trying to stretch out on the previous play

Simms wasn't held up like the ref said, the ball was grounded briefly.

So I guess overall it evened itself out!

#3114066 Lance Hohaia retires

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 29 April 2015 - 10:50 PM

BTW, Hohaia apparently sent Ben Flower a 'Good Luck' message ahead of his return to competitive Rugby. Big of him.

Yes it was. I think he handled the whole thing with dignity and I think it spoke volumes of him as a person.

I didn't have an optinion of him really before that, but I have gained huge respect for him since. I hope he enjoys his retirement - he deserves to.

#3113187 Salford apply to RFL to have this Friday's game postponed (merged threads)

I'm not anti-Marwan. Never have been. But this just makes him look silly.

#3104054 10 Apr: Hull FC v Widnes Vikings KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by MamaKangaroo on 10 April 2015 - 07:34 PM

Nearly every other ref would have gone to the screen to make sure, very poor.

You can only go back to the last play the ball, which was after the knock on. Had Galea of scored I'm sure he would have checked it.
