Not quite. It was poor as a spectacle when amateur, it is immeasurably better now. I'm not sure of the veracity of that Larder quote either


How about some words from Jiffy then,

As Jonathan Davies, whose outstanding career spanned both codes, wrote in The Independent (a UK newspaper), the sophistication of defensive systems learnt from league can make attacking rugby very hard. He added, however, that "league got them into this situation and now can get them out of it".

We keep getting told that League is not a sophisticated game though !!

If you knew any of the history of Scotland and Cumberland ( now part of Cumbria), you would know Cumberland, and therefore Workington, was actually part of Scotland at the time of the Domesday Book 1086.

Workington Town will probably have 4 players in the Scotland squad.

"Cumbria" is really the same word as "Cambria" the Romanised form of "Cymru".

Brilliant, home game for both teams ;)
