#2997740 Scotland independence / GB / Catalans (merged threads)

Posted by brooza on 18 September 2014 - 07:49 AM

Scotland is geographically in Great Britain no matter whether it is independant or not.



They can leave the UK but can't leave GB. Unless someone turns Hadrians Wall into a trench

#2993020 Is Zak Hardaker set for another lengthy ban? (Merged threads)

Posted by brooza on 11 September 2014 - 12:03 PM

whether this has been handled correctly is a different issue, if there have been issues here, they should be investigated - lets not forget only Hetherington has made this claim. It is a distraction on whether there was an offence on field though.

I think I asked this earlier in the thread, does anybody know the process of match reports etc? Will the full report have been compiled, read and discussed by the time of the post-match conference, for example?

Chris Irvine claimed in on BackChat. Not that that adds any credence

How far is it from Huddersfield to Leeds/Bradford airport? (or is Manchester closer?)

The only direct flight on Friday is from Stansted and that's midday.


There is a flight from Southampton on Saturday at 15:25, which will get to PGF at 18:35. Which could make for quite good TV, as they could intercut the match with live updates of the shield being transported from the airport to the ground!

I'm glad that at no point does he actually apologise in that statement.


I hope in the next broadcast they show them packing away the trophy and loading it onto a plane to France. Give them something to whinge about.

Maybe there's been a 3 referee limit set on the competition. We're able to spread that over 3 matches, but the aussies will use up their allocation in 1 match!

#2990591 Top eight teams

Posted by brooza on 08 September 2014 - 10:08 AM

I'm happy with it being over a few days. It spreads the tension out a bit.


Plus it gives the powers that be time to get the LLS over to Perpignan on Saturday morning!

We need to get something out of this. We've got no chance of winning the league from 6th. We need to climb a place up the ladder!

So Saints are guaranteed it then?


A bit disrespectful to Cas

They pretty much are.


I will still be hoping for a Wire win tonight. Now Leeds are out of the running, I want Cas to grab the LLS

#2982905 Hudgell: Robins won’t sign another Hull FC player

Shouldn't they be getting the best players they can, regardless of where they currently play?

#2975918 Mike Cooper

Posted by brooza on 12 August 2014 - 02:44 PM

I note in a BBC article he is being tipped for England after excelling in the NRL.


For myself this isn't a good thing. Cooper last year wouldn't be in most peoples top 10 England props, he wasn't anywhere near the best at Wire. Just because he is playing well in the NRL shouldn't mean he should automatically considered for England.


Luke Burgess couldn't get into the Leeds 17 went to the NRL got rave reviews and people were mentioning his name for England selection. If you had mentioned his name for England whilst he was at Leeds people would of laughed at you.


I appreciate the NRL is an overall higher standard, but I don't think it's right that if people play well in the NRL it automatically means they should play for England.


Does anyone agree?



I would argue that any English player playing well in the top flight of any country should be considered for England

Chris Hill seems to think it was an accident, as do the RFL. No charge (though Hardaker runs the RFL doesn't he)

In cross county challenge cup finals since 2005, it's Lancashire 7 Yorkshire 0, so you can shove your white rose where the sun doesn't shine! !!!!!!!!!!

Aye, this year we decided it'd be easier to knock you all out before the final instead

Very good!


But Brooza is up there!

Aye, not how I'd planned to spend my holiday, but it got done just in the nick of time :)

Relegate Leeds.


It's the only answer. :rtfm:  

See you in the Championships next year, the RFL will do anything to keep London up! :laugh:
