#3183462 Jarryd Hayne in the NFL (merged threads)

Posted by OMEGA on 28 August 2015 - 08:49 AM

Wayne Bennett is encouraging the NRL to play games in the U.S. in order to maximise the exposure for Rugby League and prevent Union from hijacking the story and steal the progression off the back of it.


I'd like to see the IRLF work with the US RL to ensure they get a strong association with Haynes background as a Rugby League player. We should unashamedly attach ourselves to this with a level of vulgarity if necessary.

Time for Russell Crowe to get loud and proud again too, he's ploughed a lonely furrow for a couple of years but Haynes success could amplify his message. Coupled with his decision this year to watch Souths play Sts instead of presenting at the Oscars it could really help the sports profile in the US and finally help Americans separate the two Rugby codes.

One thing I know is the Union authorities will unashamedly hijack this for their own gain if we let them, who knows they may even have Hayne arrested for fraud!

You snooze you lose!

And yet some seem to think Wakey were ' hard done to ' , with all that in their favour they won by 1 point
But we lost and are actually now bottom of the table on goal difference , next up Sheffield , our biggest and most important match of the season

Hey, don't go moving the goal posts now!

My comments were nothing to do with Wakefield being hard done to and everything to do with your bleating about how Leigh, what was it?
"Came close to blowing Wakefield away"
Which is quite simply ridiculous!

You need to watch it again and count the number of line breaks Leigh made 1 st half that almost came off , again , check out Brierleys interception from the scrum
Wakey scored from 1 gifted try early doors and 2 individual steps from Miller , hardly ' domination '
As for Riley , you can't kick a ball out of somebody's hands , in fact he actually tackled players 3 times without the ball including when Kay scored , could have easily been binned himself

Perhaps I was wrong

I underestimated what biased, one eyed bigotry can lead some to say

Well it seems I owe Koncrete an apology because the Wakefield Club have released a statement about chanting at the game on Sat.

I was in the North stand but didn't hear it at all and didn't hear it on the TV when watching it back but it seems to have definitely happened.

Unacceptable and I hope the club route the culprits out and ban them for life.

Great news here at Belle Vue, the beer is £2pp and sinks have been installed in the bogs since my last visit.
So, apart from the score and the racist chanting, nowt else to mention.

I haven't heard any racist chanting from either set of fans!

Why not stop being bitter and S4!t stirring and just watch the game!

#3171150 Wembley statue begins to come to life

Posted by OMEGA on 04 August 2015 - 11:47 PM

Though I am pleased at the recognition Rugby League is getting as a part of Wembleys history, I am incensed at the omission of Neil Fox from the statue.

There are no representatives of Yorkshires teams and in Fox you have a man who won numerous Wembley finals and holds the individual points in a final record.

#3158218 Smith Leaves Wakefield

Posted by OMEGA on 14 July 2015 - 04:16 PM

I sort of get what you're trying to say, I think!

#3152752 Cas stadium NOT being called in...

Posted by OMEGA on 05 July 2015 - 08:58 AM

The same Yvette Cooper who has stubbornly and consistently failed to engage with Wakefields Stadium Trust but now wants to jump on the back of the Castleford stadium bandwagon. Her use of the word "we" is nauseating but also reveals the favouritism shown by the Castleford centric political power base within the Wakefield area which also runs to the leader of the council being a Castleford shareholder and season ticket holder at Castleford.

Wakefield Trinity never had a chance whilestever this was the status quo, rd blocks, political reluctance and downright underhandedness was/is always going to keep the City of Wakefield behind the Town of Castleford in the stadium race.

None of which, post Richard Wright, is the fault of Castleford Tigers though and I wish them well in their stadium quest.

#3150770 Wakefield Stadium

Posted by OMEGA on 01 July 2015 - 09:26 PM

They didn't really. Crusaders withdrew their application, I think Halifax were the other potential candidate for a place on SL. So Wakey stated at the expense of Fax.

The RFL laughed at Halifaxs application and described it as atrocious or something like that.

Blake Solly stated that Wakefield were not the worst candidates or even the 2nd worst

With regard the number of fans being just 3,000.
When we put a half decent and competitive team on the field we get around 7,000 or 8,000 which isn't bad for a club that's been through disaster after disaster for 30 odd years and plays out of a terrible stadium

#3150354 Number of Academy Players

I didn't say that they were.

I know you didn't, I'm just continuing what you were saying.

#3149998 Number of Academy Players

Posted by OMEGA on 30 June 2015 - 11:17 AM

Because believe it or not at Huddersfield we seem to be doing ok with bringing our youth players through at the moment. Plenty in the pipeline and have only just brought Jared Simpson through earlier this month to debut, and now on the shortlist for Super League player of the month. We have also played most games this season with just 1 overseas player, and only have 2 on the books. Huddersfield are certainly going in the right direction in terms of Youth development.

Completely true, Huddersfield have signed 7 of this years Scholarship U16s to full time contracts so there's definitely some good things being done at Youth level. The move to Full Time is a huge shift in a positive direction, they've also formed a partnership with Greenhead College to offer A-Levels to their Academy players, Greenhead is THE No1 College in the country at the moment. This sits nicely next to the partnership with Loughbrough College who facilitate the BTec courses at the Zone which is owned by Huddersfield Giants.

Lots of very good things going on with the Community department currently undergoing positive changes that will make them more visible and more active throughout schools and Community Clubs.

#3145587 Tony Smith

Posted by OMEGA on 22 June 2015 - 10:20 PM

You can't lose a player of Briers quality one year and Monaghan the next without there being a huge drop in the quality of your team.

Warrington will know that and Smiths job won't be in question

Can I be the first poster who supports Wakefield to say sorry to the rest of the people associated with the game for that embarassing debacle!

Injuries or no, that's unacceptable from a professional team

#3101357 State of origin europe.

Posted by OMEGA on 06 April 2015 - 10:50 AM

I have no interest in 600 year old, geographically inaccurate rivalries being played out in modern sport.
Especially as I don't live in either of the counties concerned and have no affinity to the Pennines.
You cannot artificially create rivalries.

I do!

I live in Yorkshire and I'm proud of it, I love nothing more than kicking Lancashire *****!
There's nothing artificial about that

I'm sure people in Melbourne and Adelaide could have felt much the same as you do when Origin started
