#3167736 Wigan-Catalans in London

Posted by brooza on 30 July 2015 - 08:07 AM

Maybe point out that all the Millwall fans will be in Port Vale, so it's probably the safest time to visit

#3167508 Super 8s fixtures announced

Posted by brooza on 29 July 2015 - 03:33 PM

I would have thought that quite obvious Lobby, I don't actually think that it is the remit of the RFL to have Leigh in the SL, I always thought that the Bulls would be the choice of theirs, but hey if we can take 4 from 6 we will have the momentum with us, other than what they will be hoping.

Conspiracy theories abound!


I hardly think though that Leigh will be worried about Salford and Wakefield. The Championship teams are the ones with form on their side!

Posted by brooza on 20 July 2015 - 01:18 PM

Considering the initiators of this seem to be accounds called Leeds Rhinos Faithful, London Faithful, Salford Faithful, Giants Fanzine, Tigers Faithful, then I would say your guess of Fans Association seems about right

Qualification for the next RLWC continues on the 20th of June as Italy host Serbia in the European Championship B.


This is Italy's first international this year and will be hoping to defeat a Serbian team eager to build on their historic defeat of Russia last month

#3138637 Nordic Cup 2015

Posted by brooza on 11 June 2015 - 11:23 AM

We've already seen Denmark travel to Sweden and pick up a 30-16 win in the first round of the cup, but this weekend sees them hosting Norway with the possibility of winning the entire competition. However, if Norway win then we will have to wait until October to discover the winners when Norway host Sweden

#3134167 Marquee Player rule approved

Posted by brooza on 03 June 2015 - 10:31 AM

Interesting to see him calling it a fantastic day because of this rule going through...

The Reds boss says he plans to be selective with future recruitment strategies.

He adds: ‘‘Big names do not mean anything to me any more.

"Some who have come to this club have hardly given the club anything in return.

"Why would I want to ruin the chemistry of what is a very good and strong squad by bringing in what I term big-time Charlies?

"This will not happen again."


#3133750 Power .... League .... anyone?

Posted by brooza on 02 June 2015 - 01:08 PM

Rugby League is the name of our sport and we should never change it!

I think you meant to say we should never change it again...

#3133704 Power .... League .... anyone?

Posted by brooza on 02 June 2015 - 12:02 PM

I've generally been opposed to changing the name, but I'm gradually warming to the idea.


I don't like Power League though, it just sounds childish.


I'm leaning towards League XIII at the moment. People can still call it league if they like, a lot of the international bodies use XIII in their names already. I think the main issue would be the R in NRL. Although if they want to keep that, it can stand for レ イカㇱマ ワン / re ikasma wan (13 in the Ainu language, of which there are 10 remaining native speakers). I think there may be an alternative in Dumi (spoken in areas of Nepal). Other than those options, the R might need to go...

Well, considering every listing states that it was issued to/worn by Ryan Hall, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Carl Ablett

#3131120 suspensions

Posted by brooza on 29 May 2015 - 08:15 AM

Browny, the figure is the number of suspensions I believe.

But I was in no way suggesting that Salford have not been guilty of things, nor that the suspensions weren't well earned certainly in some cases. No, I just can't see how one team can have 27 and another Zero as well as the nearest rival to Salford being some 16 behind. If as you point out Harris picked these things up at Wigan why are the Warriors not up there with Salford? The figures don't add up, in terms of probability.

And though the incidents you picked up were questionable they're not the issue it is the level of difference that intrigues me as I can't come up with a sensible explanation for why the numbers should be so different given the game as it is played by everyone! Unless you think two teams are are complete saints and Salford are (sorry just came out like this) devils incarnate it makes no sense!


I'm still hoping that some one will show this is the norm and season by season this has been the difference consistently but maybe no one's that nerdy or doesn't want to admit they are - but no one has come up with anything at all! This is also amazing given the statistics you normally get in the stampede to point out this, that, or the other!

What do you mean "I believe"? You're the one that started this thread quoting this number and you don't even know what the number means.


What is the source for this figure?
