#3044211 Union World Cup Preview in Telegraph

Posted by flyingking on 12 December 2014 - 07:49 PM

In this thread some posters have tried to minimise the disruption that occurred to league as a result of the discriminatory acts perpetrated by the RFU and their hangers-on. Just read this fascinating article about bans and withdrawal of facilities that prevented working-class Northerners from benefitting from playing their chosen sport. It may not be about rugby, but this article shows that sports that experience institutional prejudice take a long time to recover. The ban was rescinded in 1971 and it is only now two generations later that the sport is starting to flourish again.

I'm already bored of reading about him.




#3035499 Why Rugby Union over Rugby

Posted by flyingking on 20 November 2014 - 04:09 PM

Remind me how many of the home nations were playing in this final?

Both of them!

Netherlands women have their first game and hope to be playing other European nations soon. http://t.co/uV2wIbTVE9

There is only one rule- Australia must win.

If we cannot get our own ref for the Kangaroos Samoa game next week, could we at least be granted the singer of the national anthems. I would like him/her to belt out "Advance (by any foul means) Australia Unfair"


#3025225 Four Nations Final permutations (merged threads)

The only time that the word "fair" and Australian mixes is when it is followed by the word "dinkum".




#3024208 Where should the Home Nations play their Home Games?

Posted by flyingking on 01 November 2014 - 04:14 PM

At home would be a start, rather than some county adjacent to the supposedly home nation.




#3022738 RUWC 2015

There is the occasional good news story surrounding this tournament

Commenting on this,an ITV spokesperson did not say. "High on hype and low on excitement, the World Cup is a perfect replacement for the X Factor. Saturday night viewers have been deserting us in their droves, and securing this important competition for ITV means we will continue to deliver the dross that our viewers have become accustomed to. We will of course, carry on the tradition of the sob story. In fact we guarantee that you will be bored to tears by indifferent performances that will inevitably be described as "brilliant" or "fantastic". We will also incorporate all the really irritating bits that the X Factor is known for, such as the real long pauses waiting for something to happen before cutting away to an ad break. Sadly Simon Cowell will not be part of the production team, but wait till you see the smug man that we have lined up to replace him- trust us you will not notice the difference. Why should you watch ITV next year, good question, best I have been able to come up with is that you will actually be able to identify some of the competitors for the 2016 series of Strictly.

Plan A Fix the rules of your provincial competition so that you are guaranteed access to the best players. If that does not work, revert to Plan B and fix the officials.


#3020754 12-Year International Schedule?

Posted by flyingking on 26 October 2014 - 03:15 PM

A 12 year international calendar, is there a fagpacket big enough for the task?

Apart from the first ten minutes, the Kangaroos were outplayed. Well done to New Zealand on an excellent victory.

Rugby League's internationals failure are spectacular. Two great Test matches this morning, well worth only having a few hours sleep after getting in from work at 2am.

For once, I am glad to see a moment of genius from Shaun Johnson
