In Topic: 'Southern' RL fans - why do you follow the sport?

South Cheshire
Moved to Folkestone when I was eight and have remained there since.

Awareness of rugby league was only through watching Challenge Cup Finals on TV. However a travel deals email list I subscribe to highlighted a deal for cheap Challenge Cup Final tickets. I went mainly because I reckoned it was the easiest way to experience a major event at Wembley. I chose to support Warrington because I was with their supporters and my Cheshire connections. I was blown away by the atmosphere and the speed of the game.

My involvement with the game is as a fan, I will attend the major occasions and the odd Wire, Broncos or Skolars game. During the World Cup I was a volunteer and had the role of a Social Media Journalist.

I enjoy any sport that is fast and has a lively atmosphere. Therefore my favourite sports are rugby league, ice hockey, handball, volleyball and judo and to a lesser extent hockey and basketball.

An outspoken Yorkshireman who likes making videos of japes with his mates, with a history of getting into trouble for his inappropriate comments and behaviour- surely a natural replacement for Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear

A nuance is the French transliteration of the phrase used to show appreciation of the perfect union piece of play. It occurs just after the kicker has successfully scored the penalty awarded for a collapsed scrum.Tarquin will then turn to Henry and point out, "Look, no hands!"

Not a good week for coaches in London, second one gone in the space of a few days.

In Topic: 7 Mar: Catalans Dragons v Salford Red Devils KO 4.30pm (CET) (TV)

Could not have picked a better game for my first visit to Perpignan, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I thought that the last penalty call was correct. Escare had been tackled and did not play the ball.

I enjoyed watching Carney and Dureau play together, those two combined are going to be a real handful- hope they stay injury free; if so it could be a very exciting season for Les Catalans. Taia was immense and gained lots of metres and was continually looking for the offload. The only negative for me in the game was that a lot of Catalan fans headed straight for the exit- they should have stayed on to salute their team for a magnificent second half fightback, even if they were disappointed by the result.
