#3179947 20 Aug: Super 8s - St Helens v Huddersfield Giants KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by flyingking on 21 August 2015 - 04:33 AM

For St Helens, the marketing slogan for the Super 8s should be "Every minute is dark matter"

They encounter a mysterious force which causes them to lose all energy and momentum. :ph34r:

Just as well they are not playing the 15 man version of rugby, would not want to be the person who has to retrieve the match ball when it is kicked out on the full.




#3174251 Super 8s - a joke

Let's penalise the more successful side by removing a player from the field for each league position they are ahead of their opponents. So Leeds will just have six players for their game against Hull.

Even more radically, let's just enjoy the games.

IMO Albert Kelly is a miracle on two legs. He is all over the field and makes a major contribution in defence. He is my Man of Steel.

I hope that Albert, players and supporters of HKR enjoy their day at Wembley Sing well.

Think he has a big chance of being named the Lance Todd Trophy winner.

Well done Saints, showed a lot of character; they made mistakes but then immediately bounced back.

#3154838 McDermott appointed new USA coach

Posted by flyingking on 08 July 2015 - 02:28 PM

He has already unearthed some players for the side; It is obvious that Zak Hardaker and Brad Singleton had American mothers just by their first names. It is a little known fact that Ryan is the cousin of Rich Hall. The two Hispanic veterans Jaime Peacock and Jaime Jones-Buchanan will add experience to the side. Michael Jordan Lilley's ball handling skills are just amazing. The Yanks will easily relate to Kevin Infield and Joeleen, Joeleen, Joeleen Moon. With a little addition, what could be more American sounding than The L.I.am Sutcliffe and Frankly my dear I don't give Adam Cuthbertson?

The Doctor says Harris' sickness is related to having a bad side.


#3151559 Harris on his way out?

Posted by flyingking on 02 July 2015 - 09:36 PM

Thank you for flying Marwan Hot Air. Please fasten your seatbelts as we are expecting plenty of turbulence during the trip.
Sould we encounter any problems in this one prop aircraft (it was a two prop version but one has dropped out/got damaged or is no longer working) there are plenty of emergency exits. In fact, the chief engineer will personaLly guide you to the exit.
We would like to stress that the assistant pilot is doing a fine job in the circumstances of having only just qualified to take the controls. His three crashes in Wales were not really his fault.

In the event of a sudden loss of pressure, oxygen masks will drop down unless your surname is Chase or Hock, we are sure that oxygen deprivation to the brain will not affect them in any way.


#3151370 Wigan Warriors to play home games in London (merged)

Posted by flyingking on 02 July 2015 - 07:11 PM

Some people seem to have missed what Wigan are up to here, this isn't about trying to get Londoners to take a two hour train journey to Wigan after they have been amazed at watching a Rugby League game live.

 

This is about sponsorship. The big sponsors are London based, getting these guys to come north to experience rugby league live and show them what we have to offer is a tough task. So Lenighan has decide to do it the other way around, we take the game to them. Why do you think this is being kicked off where it is.

 

This is a business move not a sporting move.

 

Why have Wigan been the opponent for the last two years in London Skolars Capital Challenge pre-season game? Because it is held within walking distance of the financial institutions based in the City of London and the pre-match lunch presents plenty of networking opportunities. Clearly, Wigan see potential in this approach and are prepared to invest the revenue they would lose from not hosting a game at the DW, in anticipation of gaining a greater long-term return in terms of exposure and sponsorship.




#3151164 Hull FC and Hull KR to merge...

Posted by flyingking on 02 July 2015 - 02:29 PM

As a slight aside, "The new academy side will play in blue and yellow, the colours of Hull city council", that's nice, I wonder if the Allams will consider a new colour scheme for theHull Tigers' kit in recognition of Hull City Council's colours..

Seems fair, Warrington get an exciting winger who was one of the best products from Hull's academy and in return the new side gets to play in Warrington's colours.

#3149356 Tony Smith

Posted by flyingking on 29 June 2015 - 03:57 AM

The BBC clip of Sims yesterday demonstrated the value of Sims as an on-field motivator, in addition to the metres and tackles he makes. I was at the Leigh game and Sims stood out together with Hill and Westwood for their workrate and the battering they gave the Leigh players. Still happy with Smith as coach despite the indifferent form. It takes time to successfully rebuild a side, and Warrington have lost an awful lot of experience in recent years. Just because Shaun Wane managed to win a double at the same time as bringing youngsters through, does not mean that every other coach is going to have similar success.


#3148326 27 Jun: CCQF - Warrington Wolves v Leigh Centurions KO 3pm (TV)

Posted by flyingking on 27 June 2015 - 02:31 PM

This game has more quality moments in the first 20 minutes than in the whole of the game I attended last night.
