Topics I've Started

England's 4nations fullback

24 August 2014 - 06:37 AM

Reading all the comments from the warriors fans on LU and Sam tomkins had another mare under the high ball again for the warriors against the roosters. Surely his inconsistent form and fragility under the high ball has to be a worry for McNamara and must put Zak hardaker in pole position for being England's fullback for this years 4nations. I would honestly play Sam tomkins in the halves with widdop, take the pressure off him and let him have free rein in the middle of the pitch.

British evacuation from libya

Well the "humanitarian" intervention in Libya is starting to look like another catastrophic blunder made by the US, UK&nato. Is Libya better off today and are Libyans really better off post Gaddafi? I think the answer is obvious, just like Iraq. Thank god we never intervened for "humanitarian" reasons in Syria.

Middle east violence

I can't believe that there isn't a thread for the worlds current #1 news story, are people fatigued? Not interested? Done with the whole issue?

Short term success V's long term investment

31 July 2014 - 02:56 PM

With the likes of Marwan koukash at Salford and ken Davy at Huddersfield pumping millions of £££'s of their own monies into their respective teams trying to buy instant success would it not be wiser for said owners to pump a large percentage of that money into salford's and it's surrounding areas grassroots rugby league setup and the same for huddersfields and it's surrounding areas junior setup? In the case of Salford that money could be used to create and help setup new grassroots teams in new areas and not only in Salford but Manchester, Trafford etc. not only would these new teams provide potentially new players for Salford but more importantly new fans for the red devils and the same applies to Huddersfield. Of course taking this route and implementing this strategy would take at least a decade before any benefit could be seen and would obviously robb the owners of any finals appearances and silverware which I can easily understand as its their money.

International selection

13 July 2014 - 11:42 AM

Is it to early to consider the likes of daryl Clark, Marc Sneyd, mason caton-brown, joe burgess and John Bateman for the up coming 4nations down under? Personally I think all 5 have had great to exceptional seasons to date and have huge futures for England but at the present time I would only consider daryl Clark and maybe John Bateman for selection, with the likes of Sneyd, burgess and caton-brown only having the lack of experience counting against them. Also do the England knights have any fixtures scheduled this season?
