#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

It's the only answer. :rtfm:  

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

With Amatuers we're just talking about a £100 fine at most presumably. Thats not going to knock the socks of anybody though - lol.

£100 is how much we take in as match subs for a home game, so that's a fair amount for us!

#2960966 Hardaker says he's a better person now.

Posted by brooza on 18 July 2014 - 08:39 AM

Aye, didnt his withdrawal from the England squad also make him a better person.

Needs to show it, not say it.

It's possible to improve yourself more than once. He must have been a despicable human being last year!

Mexico are also on the verge of starting up a national team and have already had requests to play from Jamaica and Belize! (I didn't even know Belize played RL!)

#2953404 No Game for me

I'm not able to get to a match this weekend because I'll be in Spain. We all have our struggles

#2952996 Todd Carney has been sacked.

Posted by brooza on 01 July 2014 - 01:55 PM

I never unuderstood the Bird thing. Was he not denied a UK work visa. If that is the case, why can he ply his trade in the uk even if he has a French visa?

At a guess it would be something to do with the difference between a work visa and a sporting visa

Well for those that do know what RL is in the south, I would bet that London broncos had nothing to do with their interest.


In London there is soccer which is mostly played at the top level by foreigners. There is no RU and what there is in the home counties environs is mostly played by foreigners. Cricket is the same. Possibly RL IS the best option for them ;)


I don't have any statistics but several from Wales are playing in SL at the highest level and I think several from Notts are playing at Sheffield. To play RL successfully, you need to be athletic so what do you reckon ?

Joe Keyes has been a Broncos (in it's various guises) since he was 5 and he's just signed a professional contract for next year.


I know it's only one player, but still...
