#3207627 Manchester Rangers

Posted by johnh1 on 04 October 2015 - 06:21 PM

TRY OF THE WEEK Manchester Rangers v Rochdale Cobras. 3rd of October 2015

Two great tries there.

#3206615 So was it all worth it?

Posted by johnh1 on 03 October 2015 - 06:24 PM

Well I think it has been a great concept. It has given 4 championship sides the chance of promotion. Just because it hasn't happened this year doesn't mean it will never happen. I think I'm right in saying that for quite a few years, the Grand final was contested by the top two teams. Then, Leeds had the temerity to win it from fifth place. Even that got criticised by some on here.

You will never please everyone all the time.

Crikey, 'highlights' of England/Wales is on. Just shows what a kickathon this game really is. Absolutely dreadful.

#3199834 24 Sept: Super 8s - St Helens v Warrington Wolves KO 8pm (TV)

Yes, he overly utilises that phrase.

I missed most of the first half. Within the first 2 minutes of the second half, Stevo had said 'stanza', 'utilise', 'outfit' and 'offload'. He has to go. I find him tiresome, boring, loud and far too opinionated, as well as a stereotype. There must be someone far better.

I'm a Salford fan and it's times like this that I wish I wasn't! Nervous times

Does anyone know if Brian McDermott has criticised the owners of the Leeds club for allowing their team to be beaten by such a huge score?

#3192309 It's obviously time this try or no try to video ref is binned

Posted by johnh1 on 12 September 2015 - 06:52 PM

Exactly right. The ref is being asked to make his decision as if the Video ref were not available. Because the video ref is there, they are using the technology.

I would like to see the option they use in cricket and tennis, where teams are permitted to challenge a certain number of decisions, say two in each half. That would limit the number of video ref referrals.

#3185103 New TV rights deal agreed with BBC

Posted by johnh1 on 31 August 2015 - 08:56 PM

I agree that the coverage has improved massively. I just wish that they would give this great game better coverage in other areas, such as BBC breakfast on the day of games covered by the BBC itself.

#3184034 29/8/2015 RL Challenge Cup Final Hull Kingston Rovers v Leeds Rhinos, Wembley...

Posted by johnh1 on 29 August 2015 - 05:06 PM

Our biggest game on terrestrial TV and it was a one sided affair, not good for neutrals or anyone new tuning in to see what it's all about. It wasn't a good game, it was awful, unless of course your a Leeds fan in which case it is probably the best day ever. A great close game is what was needed, not watching Hull KR constantly make mistakes and Leeds walk the ball in easily.

All your posts have been so negative 7723. Leeds were brilliant. Briscoe was fantastic. Sinfield and Peacock played their hearts out. If you can't enjoy watching superlative rugby league by a superb team, then maybe you will prefer the borefest that is about to happen in a certain other sport. And no, I am not a Leeds fan. But I can appreciate quality athletes playing sport at the top of their profession.

Love em or hate em, you have to say that Leeds are a wonderful team. I think HKR are still in this though.

Puerto Rico

Loads of places Brigg Rover. My house would be one of them, but I think that I will be playing golf that day and will watch it in the evening. I will do some research for you and let you know. Don't worry, you won't miss it. As a Salford fan, I will be wishing for a Rovers win.

#3145716 That was a great week of rugby league

Posted by johnh1 on 23 June 2015 - 09:41 AM

I think it is grossly unfair on Cas to suggest that Saints played poorly. Saints have played a lot better, yes, but they did not play badly. They played as well as they were allowed to. It was a great game between two evenly matched teams and, for a change, Saints losing the game in the last few seconds rather than winning in the last few seconds. It's games like this that make it The Greatest Game.

#3141854 Koukash plans more signings and says 'Will reveal all next Tuesday'

Posted by johnh1 on 16 June 2015 - 09:55 PM

Absolutely. He has saved the club from the knackered yard, created more press inches than anyone I can remember, and backed his plans with ready cash. I just hope it eventually pays off big style.

#3137892 Salford V Catalans Free entry

Posted by johnh1 on 09 June 2015 - 06:05 PM

As a lifelong Salford fan who remembers the glory days at The Willows, I remember parking over a mile away from The Willows to join the crowds walking to the match. Most people just walked out of their houses and walked to the ground. I have not been to the A J Bell stadium as I now live abroad, but I would imagine that there is no 'walk up' to the game. The stadium's location is the biggest problem. I really don't know the answer, but at least MK is doing his best to get people to the ground. I don't know why he is coming in for so much criticism, bearing in mind he saved the club from oblivion.
