#3162245 Eagles to go full-time in 2016

Posted by walter sobchak on 22 July 2015 - 03:43 AM

Good luck to the eagles. Sheffield along with Manchester should be top priorities in aggressively expanding RL at grassroots level, 2 huge cities right on our doorstep.

#3153206 French Update

Posted by walter sobchak on 05 July 2015 - 07:45 PM

Unlikely considering there are far better options available who are actually French.

That's good to hear but pelo was born in New Caledonia and Chisholm has a French mother.

#3152503 Ben Currie at centre for England

Posted by walter sobchak on 04 July 2015 - 02:45 PM

England doesn't need to play players out of position like currie and J Tomkins at centre when we've got reed, Watkins, Shenton and sarginson playing there for their respected clubs week in week out. Why not play Ben currie in the second row or have him on the bench?

#3150319 Tunisia.

Posted by walter sobchak on 30 June 2015 - 07:55 PM

It's now being reported that the terrorist was trained in an Isis controlled town in Libya, that's Libya post the US, UK and NATO overthrowing of gaddafi. If true then not only does this terrorist have blood on his hands but so does Cameron, Obama, sarkozy, harper and the rest of the clueless bumbling idiots that call themselves our "leaders."

#3149095 Tunisia.

Posted by walter sobchak on 28 June 2015 - 06:02 PM

No. If there was no Islam, ther would be nothing to "distort" . The problem IS Islam.

So are you saying that if all the Palestinians, Iraqis, Iranians etc were all atheists there'd be no resistance from them and that they'd all roll over?

#3148644 Tunisia.

Posted by walter sobchak on 28 June 2015 - 04:53 AM

You really, really believe that it all started in the late 1970's?  Wow.

The arming and training of the mujahideen and the afghan Arabs in Afghanistan to kill Russians during the 80's is the birthplace of al Qaeda. But if you can trace it back further let's hear it?

Why? What if it happens to be true? Pretending something isn't as it is is pretty dangerous too.
Or maybe there's another religion causing so much trouble in the world somewhere that we never hear about.
A historical equivalent would have been not getting involved in WW2. The argument could have been made that most Germans weren't Nazis therefore let's argue that we shouldn't do anything as it would be unfair.

George bush and tony Blair claim to be "Christians" but they lied to their respected nations and killed and maimed over 1 million people in Iraq, should we equate all Christians or for that matter all Brits and Americans with them?

Posted by walter sobchak on 21 June 2015 - 04:24 PM

They won't.  Even history will write it off as a "mistake" rather than an illegal war of aggression that has resulted in the deaths well into the six figures and the elimination of Iraqi Christians as a part of the country.  We'll have to wait the 50 years until the government papers are formally declassified and released, only another 38 to go.

Very true. The U.S. And UK governments are too powerful to face justice, it's only poor and weak third world countries whose thug and dictator leaders who are charged and stand trial at The Hague.

#3143217 Kiwis Fan Looking To Find Out More About the England Team

Posted by walter sobchak on 18 June 2015 - 09:50 PM

I like this. Burgess would come up against a nightingale or a Watene Zelezniak which would be a great match up. Pita Hiku is another guy covering wings he could see in front of him. Having two power wingers on both sides. Plus the spectacle of seeing Manu v Hall would be epic.

Your back 3 of RTS, DWZ and Manu is epic. You have pace, skill and brute strength. Hiku for me is just a versatile solid player than can cover fullback, wing and centre but if everybody's fit should be no way near the NZ first 17.

Is there any other young kiwis who could be bolters for the squad? The kid at the broncos nikorima(not sure of spelling) or the kid at the warriors lolohea?

#3143192 Kiwis Fan Looking To Find Out More About the England Team

Posted by walter sobchak on 18 June 2015 - 09:33 PM

Has charnleys performance diminished or has Joe Burgess clearly excelled past him?

I thinks it's a bit of both. Burgess had an amazing break through year last season and after a sticky start to this season is playing some fantastic rugby again. As for charnley he's suffered from injuries and a drop in form, for me I think he's bulked up too much.

#3142572 PNG to get at least 2 World Cup games

Posted by walter sobchak on 17 June 2015 - 10:02 PM

In the southern hemisphere yes. Up here in the north, we need to be working on France.

France, Fiji and PNG have everything in place to at least be more than competitive against England, NZ and Australia.

#3138744 Frank Pritchard and Krisnan Inu to Hull FC?

Posted by walter sobchak on 11 June 2015 - 03:07 PM

Pritchard could be a 50/50 signing, he could be like a tony puletua for saints signing or like a Roy asotasi for wire. As for Inu I would give him a serve, was great when he first broke through for the eels but as of late has more poor/ordinary games than good ones for me. I'd rather give some youth players a chance.

#3133802 Benjamin Garcia NRL Deal

Posted by walter sobchak on 02 June 2015 - 03:08 PM

St George's day and Bastille day tests with the 3rd game decider rotated between France and Great Britain?

A test in say marseille or even Paris on Bastille day against the old enemy should generate a big crowd no matter what.

#3133608 Benjamin Garcia NRL Deal

Posted by walter sobchak on 02 June 2015 - 09:20 AM

Looking forward to Frances future test side.

Me too. England must play France at least once a year maybe even twice a year with tests in France.

#3133602 New Club - Bath & Wiltshire Romans RLFC

Posted by walter sobchak on 02 June 2015 - 09:14 AM

This is awesome news, the spread of RL continues in the UK. All corners of the UK need to be covered by RL at some sort of level be it professional, grassroots, college and university teams etc.
