#3264303 Now we have a mushy pea deal

Posted by RLDave on 30 January 2016 - 08:13 AM

I believe part of this deal will see Brian Barwick and Nigel Wood star in a new E4 sitcom called the Batchelors.

That's very embarrassing. Probably makes him a legend.

#3261513 This is our time?

Posted by RLDave on 24 January 2016 - 02:59 PM

Timing is everything. Super league starts (again) on the same weekend as the Six Nations, and then runs the season through both Euro 2016 and The Olympics (all three of which are more likely to catch the attention of the "casual" sports viewer.) I suppose it allows the RL community plenty of ammo for the media bias argument though.

Would it really hurt to start the season a couple of weeks earlier?

It'd hurt Wigan's England international players and therefore be the reason behind each and every Wigan loss for the rest of the year.

On the back of all this exposure I hear the RFL are going to announce 4 nations dates and details in 6 months.

There have been a couple of "unfortunate" tweets posted on Victoria Huby's twitter acccount in the last couple of hours.....

#3215602 Elland Looking For Head Coach

Posted by RLDave on 16 October 2015 - 08:30 PM

I've lead Elland to a fair few victories during my time as head coach, but I just don't get on Rugby League Manager much these days! Hope the actual real life Elland find a top coach soon though.

#3211976 RFL should take over the Darlington Stadium

Posted by RLDave on 10 October 2015 - 06:25 PM

The RFL own a peach of a stadium in the stunning ground of Odsal, why would they possibly want anything else?

Thoroughly rooting for the bulls in this one, even as a Halifax fan.

Lol @ Dexy

#3195263 Leigh to ignore Salary Cap

Posted by RLDave on 18 September 2015 - 06:59 AM

eg wakfield throwing the season then panic buying a new team and coach,

A strange point to say Leigh have signed a fair few players this season and are now talking about breaking the Cap to sign more. Talk about panic.

What do you think he acheived over and above what Paul Rowley did or ondeed any other coach did in the division ?
Murphy is a legend in the game should his opinions not be respected ?

Leigh only lost 1 game Fax 7 finishing 4th 11 points behind Leigh .
Leigh had a great cup run running Wire close and causing them loads of problems did Fax have a good cup run ?
Wonder why anyone should have an hidden agenda against Leigh ?

I believe he achieved what no other coach in the league did and that was lead a team full of part timers (I believe Sheffield have some full time players) to the middle 8's, beat some full time teams aswell as give other full time teams a tough test (Leigh never beating Fax by more than 12 points, London not by more than 4 or 6 aswell as losing to Halifax with Bradford with slighly bigger wins but again losing to Halifax later on). 

No arguments about the Challenge Cup, but I wonder if that was taken into consideration with it being the Kingstone Press Championships awards. Either way, no argument with your point.

A quick look at the RFL disciplinary page shows (I think these numbers are correct) Halifax with 17 cases referred and 3 charged, with 3 matches being missed due to suspension. Leigh have 66 cases, 13 charged and 23 matches missed due to suspension. I would assume that these numbers would go against Paul Rowley? 

As for saying should Murphy's "opinions not be respected", I'm unsure of how you've taken my original post but I don't see how it showed any disrespect to his opinion, only disagreement.

Richard Marshall wins coach of the year and Alex Murphy believes there's an agenda against Leigh. Felt that to be a bit disrespectful.

I believe Stanley Gene scored the 3 Hull points in that game.
