#2984142 We’re going to be physical, says Wane

Posted by RLDave on 28 August 2014 - 05:07 PM

By physical I assume he means players steaming in at the knees in a tackle and pushing forearms into throats, faces into the ground etc etc.


#2978435 Batley Bulldogs deducted three points by RFL

Posted by RLDave on 16 August 2014 - 04:59 PM

Why some clubs would roll over and let Super League clubs use them to get their players back to fitness is a bit beyond me. If I was a regular player for one of those clubs and I lost my place so someone can try to regain some match fitness for a seperate league and club would annoy me. It's a shame we even need a DR scheme and some clubs can't get their acts together and have their own youth structures. I'm sure the RFL are told daily where they fail but where they really go wrong for me is with youth structures.


#2943435 Fev make bid for Huddersfield Big 3

I can only imagine Huddersfield replied back with a simple "lol!".


#2940896 People pay to watch a game and its players, not its officials......

Posted by RLDave on 07 June 2014 - 05:54 PM

  • Sick of Stuart Cummins explaining rules I already know

He's quite a pointless addition to the commentary I think. It's embarrasing when the ref expert even gets the calls wrong during a game. I remember during a game (I can't remember which) and there was a brilliant bit of play which I think lead to a try and his response was "you've got to credit the referee there". I know he obviously has a huge interest in the refs but surely nobody watching is bothered enough to want to credit the refs for what the players produced.

Didn't know about this programme, thanks for the heads up. It's a good job I read this when I did as it expires from Sky On Demand in 2020.


#2929987 Trinity sign Owen

Posted by RLDave on 15 May 2014 - 05:46 PM

It won't come back to bite you. Salford will loan Locke to Cas for the season.


#2927253 Ben Jones Bishop

Posted by RLDave on 10 May 2014 - 08:34 AM

Don't blame him. I think Briscoe should've played back up to BJB.


#2917952 Jon Wells and Brian Carney and thr lcd screen

Posted by RLDave on 18 April 2014 - 06:49 AM

Yep, it's good. Even better when Brian isn't interrupting Jon all the time! I thought the two of them along with Phil Clarke did a very good job on Boots n All this week too.


#2917882 Danny Brough and Steve McNamara

Posted by RLDave on 17 April 2014 - 09:00 PM

Dare I say, fair play to McNamara for giving him plenty of notice to find another team for the WC?


#2910383 Steve McNamara: Wembley froze when Johnson scored

Posted by RLDave on 03 April 2014 - 05:23 PM

I hold a grudge against that guy, I don't mind telling you. Johnson I mean.


#2906516 Superleague Supermen - Marwan Koukash

Posted by RLDave on 27 March 2014 - 06:39 AM

Thinking about it, he'd probably be belting on Back Chat!


#2905401 Storm v Newcastle - R3 Game - Alex McKinnon Injury News & Discussion ......

Posted by RLDave on 25 March 2014 - 08:36 AM

Still I admire Smith as a footballer , I just think he should have kept his mouth shut.

Absolutely agree. How many times did the ref have to tell him to wait until the injured player was dealt with until they'd talk about it further, but Smith wouldn't drop it. Very poor conduct I thought.

Good game apart from that, awful discipline by the Knights though.


#2899015 Nigel Wood hits back at critics in this month's Rugby League World

Posted by RLDave on 14 March 2014 - 11:51 AM

Hope you grilled him on his pathetic and lethargic efforts to nail down dates for the 2014 4N. It is mid-March for heaven's sake.

Why not blame the Aussies? It's their tournement this year


#2882283 Sam Burgess (merged threads)

Posted by RLDave on 17 February 2014 - 10:06 AM

I'm with some others on here, I'm disappointed he's going as I think he could have become one of the all time great players, but when he's gone I won't care about him. Don't wish him bad luck or anything I just don't care whether he does well or not as I won't be watching to find out


The same here. He's my favourite player (if it's not too childish to say that), so I certainly don't wish him bad luck, but I couldn't care less how he goes on in Union.


#2882282 Sam Burgess (merged threads)

Posted by RLDave on 17 February 2014 - 10:02 AM

What a shame. I was looking forward to seeing Burgess become a Rugby League great and captain England in the future to probable success (at least I think we're on our way). On the plus side, I'm sure Rugby League will once again produce a champion player of his calibre for Union to be jealous of.
