#3020371 Has Australia lost a generation of test players?

Posted by Pie tries on 25 October 2014 - 08:04 PM

Could nt give a toss - smash the convicts into next year. Make them WANT to play int Footie to win a trophy back. Give no quarter. Slate their comp. win win win win. Above all else win !


#3015754 International game needs long-term strategy: Wood

Posted by Pie tries on 17 October 2014 - 10:04 PM

Don't tell us - tell the convicts!

RU on the way out in AUS but kept alive by Int.Rugby - watch and learn


#3014012 Ben Flower banned for 6 months

Posted by Pie tries on 14 October 2014 - 06:24 PM

I think the RL, Wigan and St Helen's have all handled this well - in the face of pro RU media desparate for any negative spin. Don't forget he's also lost games with Wales, plus no WCC games and he'll be well down the order after missing 8 games.

Decisive and correct. Now let's move on.

PS - well done St Helen's.


#3012667 Best ever punch ups

Posted by Pie tries on 12 October 2014 - 10:47 PM

Might be a tad inappropriate as the dust has not yet...ahem...hit the floor....however what's the best bit of good old biff you've seen ?

I remember Adam foggerty head butting Neil cowie right in front of me ! Real angel Adam !!
Brian mcdermotts boxing show a few years ago
Des Drummond cracking right hook on Kevin iro in the CC final
Obviously mason v fielden/peacock

Cracking interview with mr wood on bbc this morning. Amazing how we're in the press - even made front page of Sunday times. Low quality game, superb event, exciting and all in all a great night out !


#3012525 Wood hails greatest Grand Final experience

Posted by Pie tries on 12 October 2014 - 07:50 PM

Believe it was a full house. Also the build up and match razz all worked to make the atmosphere electric. Fab night...despite the result


#2993562 Rugby Codes Collide at Bath and Wigan Training Camp

Posted by Pie tries on 11 September 2014 - 10:20 PM

He was a contemporary of Victor Obogu, Jeremy Guscott, Andy Harriman, Adedayo Adebbayo and Steve Ojomoh. They've got 112 caps between them. Can you guess what else they have in common?


Yes they all play RU for Eng after ENG RU ended their racist policy.

Chris Oti was the first. Where as in RL Clive Sullivan - the great- captained, yes a black captain, his country in 1970.

There is no defence. Yes thankfully this is history, but don't try to sweep under the carpet what happened...pure racism.


#2981208 Rugby Codes Collide at Bath and Wigan Training Camp

Many Union players were recruited on their kicking skills both from hand and from conversions/penalties.In years gone by kicking duels between RL full backs were commonplace (I'd imagine pretty similar to what we call aimpess hoofing downfield in modern day union). I'm not old enough to know how structured the kicking duels were -))The best place kickers in League 'generally' came from union backgrounds - apart from Neil Fox, the main RL records for points (usually from conversions and penalties) were union players - Sullivan, Watkins, Lewis Jones etc.In the main, the top RL try scorers were from RL backgrounds - Bevan, Ellaby, Southward, Hanley, etc. Some will say what about Boston and Offiah from union? But to counteract, their union first class careers were so limited to hardly claim it was their union attacking skills that they brought to League. They were just about fresh out of school. They had raw talent, speed and in Bostons case raw power. The League coaches developed this. They didn't bring those skills from union.


You miss a vital point about Boston and Offiah. Both black and forth at reason alone they did not play for their country - in Union. Of course in RL they were welcome with open arms into the int. team withine five minutes.


#2978374 For all the embarrassment endured by Widnes and it's true fans, thank you...

Posted by Pie tries on 16 August 2014 - 02:21 PM

Well done Widnes, such maturity demonstrates why their club is actually on the rise and will be unaffected by this.


#2975616 10/08/14 - CCSF2 - Castleford Tigers v Widnes Vikings KO 3pm

Posted by Pie tries on 11 August 2014 - 09:23 PM

Print the picture and ban the idiots. Penalise them and not Widnes.


#2975005 10/08/14 - CCSF2 - Castleford Tigers v Widnes Vikings KO 3pm

Posted by Pie tries on 10 August 2014 - 08:51 PM

Very sad as Widnes fans been superb until the FW. Police should nick the nob who was behind DP.

Wel done Cas. Team of the year and fans of the year.

Widnes, sort yourself out. Saying its nothing is pathetic.


#2970065 First RL activity in Mexico

Posted by Pie tries on 02 August 2014 - 09:06 PM

Do it do it do it. I've started a team in Altrincham....very foreign territory...but just below the surface is soon much interest. We went as a club to Salford Leeds last Friday and everybody loved it... Including a guy for Roslyn Park. RL is the greatest game. Do your duty !


#2962105 Marwan Koukash: I'll turn rugby league into a global sport

Posted by Pie tries on 20 July 2014 - 01:48 PM

I love Dr Mar. It's about time someone talked our sport up instead of moaning - and he seems to be very able at doing that. Hope he has a brother


#2958675 What's up in Wales RU?

Posted by Pie tries on 13 July 2014 - 09:30 PM

The WRU could easily afford to pay more if they wanted to, but they they have chosen to pay back their loan for the stadium early instead. How exactly is giving a bunch of money to the bank early improving Welsh RU?
The WRU also gets a lot more access to their players than England or France do, including for 4th November tests.
 
The WRU were happy to leave the regions' owners to partly finance pro RU in Wales out of their own pockets, covering losses every year while the union was paying back its loans, only to now turn against them and try to financially strangle the regions in order to get control of them dirt cheap.


WRFU have to keep to the agreed repayment schedule - if they don't they pay more and more interest. In the long term this is in the interest of all welsh rugby clubs


#2908466 Go and support someone else

Posted by Pie tries on 30 March 2014 - 09:48 PM

No ref = no game. Good for them
