Don't get too excited yet, it doesn't mean he's staying.

I didn't spot any gouging there but punching and kneeing a man in the head whilst he is laid out on the floor is criminal and inexcuseable.

#3050109 I love Sir Bradley W

I manage to combine watching RL and cycling... by cycling to Crusaders (and some Catalan) away games! Now I'm never going to challenge any of the top pros for a place in a Grand Tour.. or even any of the semi-pros for that matter.. I'm no racer but I do enjoy getting out on my bike and have made trips to Widnes, Warrington (Wilderspool and the Haliwell Jones) Rochdale (twice), Leigh Sports Village (for Leigh and Swinton), The Gnoll, Neath (South Wales Scorpions) and Barrow... al done at a leisurely pace, sometimes with overnight stops and usually with a lift back on the Supporters Club coach!

This year I'm already planning routes to Cardiff (Arms Park), Rochdale (again), Swinton (Sedgely Park) and others during the League season and I'm hoping we get to Blackpool for the League 1 cup final.

Sir Bradley has been a huge influence on many people getting out on a bike... lets hope he influences some of them to take a peak at rugby league too.

I'd like to add my gratitude to clubs and supporters who have helped out providing changing facilities, food, showers, directions etc all to make the journey that bit more enjoyable. The beauty of cycling to RL games is there always seems to be someone who is prepared to help out a fellow supporter arriving on a bike.

That's great to read. For all the times you read of another cyclist getting grief for having the nerve to ride his or her bicycle on the road without paying "road tax", there always seems to be someone ready to help a cyclist out. Including a lady in Hebden Bridge who swapped some change with me so I could use the toilets. I was wearing lycra too, the horrors she must've gone through.

Bradford's 2015 Away Jersey is very clever marketing IMO the predominate red and black with the large bulls head is along the lines of the Chicago Bulls gear and you see people every where in the world wearing there merchandise many would't even no what sport they play but like the merchandise so I think Bradford will do well with this one.

The Chicago jersey does have the benefit of not saying Bradford on it though.

I've just been reading this weeks Cycling Weekly and with Bradley due to unveil his own Cycling team, CW revealed some details of the team and the line up, all headlined "Wiggo's Warriors". I thought he'd named his team that out of his love for Wigan but alas the actual team name is "Team Wiggins".
I shall definitely give this a listen on the iplayer. I was intending too anyway but I'm chuffed to hear he meantions RL

What a non story, who at some point in their lives has not pee'd al fresco - the guy hasnt exactly run down the street waving his pipe about showering anybody with a 3m radius

I don't think I've ever done it on a cop car though.

Featherstone, Salford twice, Wigan. Anywhere else? He's not stayed anywhere more than a few months.

I think this is a good appointment. Having two coaches who achieved so much with the club will surely be inspirational to the next crop of Saints youngsters.

Other than the attacks on the kicker, I thought Bentham had a great game and a superb tournament.

Seems to have happened all tournament that. Annoyed the hell out of me lol

If you aren't drinking Kingstone press during the game then you're a traitor. Fact.

It's a very nice cider is Kingstone press. It replaced Strongbow as the official "Daves Sunday Evening Drink" quite a while ago now!

I didn't think Saints were going to do it with some of their last tackle plays and errors. Glad they've done it after a testing season with injuries for them. Pleased for Nathan Brown also who seems like a genuinely decent guy. Nice one Saints. I think I must've lived in Saint Helens in a previous life such is my 'healthy' hatred for Wigan! Lol
