In Topic: Why the NRL should buy Super League

I read the first 2 lines of that article and thought, "I bet Steve Mascord wrote this."

 

Gotta admire Steve for his enthusiasm for the game worldwide, but some of the stuff he's been writing in the past couple of years is absolute ######.

Now you mention it that's probably the game I'm thinking of. Apologies.

 

No worries - I thought it might have been that one.

I have the programme for the Game against a Humberside thirteen. I'll post the teams later.

 

Sorry, I meant a game against a Humberside team in 1979 - I assume you're referring to the game in 1991? Deluded Pom referred to a game against a Humberside team in 1979.


In Topic: Crowd Numbers down

So the crowd average is down very slightly compared with last year after 3 rounds, but still over 16,000. Channel 9 ratings are up in Sydney and Fox Sports ratings are also up on the same period last year. 

 

There's probably a good point to be made about ticket prices, but sensationalising a very small drop in crowd figures over just 3 rounds is not the best way to do it.

As I said above they played a Humberside amateur selection in 1979. Have you worked out which programmes you are short of?

 

They played the Barla GB team at The Boulevard in 79, but there's no record of a game against a Humberside team.
