The game against South Africa has been cancelled because of their "national contingency" issues but has been replaced by a game against Serbia at St. Esteve on the 22nd of May, the day before the Wigan V Cats game in Perpignan. Good news I think and as I was planning to drive across for the Wigan game, if I can leave work a bit early on the Friday, I might make this game too.

And then there is Jiffy. A simple try in union is breathtaking. A breathtaking try in League is simple and poooooor defence.


A tad unfair, his commentary on the RWC semi in 2013 was incredibly positive (a little bit under-developed as all he could manage was "What a pass!!!" and "What a try!!!" but it was still full of praise).

Haha - meant on field sillyness, Wigan have done a good job of taking their attention of the game in a few recent meetings.

Leeds have players capable of getting into off field sillyness a plenty. Who's been drug taken by the way, have I missed that one?



Assume he was referencing Paul Aiton (not in a Leeds shirt obvs.)

It had actually been intended to be marketed for £5.90 but the seller just fell asleep on the 0 button.


Was he watching the 6 Nations?

Are we drifting into excusing away the figures again.


Widnes had a bumper crowd on a Thursday for Wigan (I know - yesbut yesbut). It is the case every year since 1896 that poor results depress crowds, but for every poor result there's a good result.


Don't excuse the figures, keep it simple - The RFL have hyped up the new structure and said it will attract the fans.


Look to the figures not excuses.


I was literally asking for figures.
