I'm going to Sheffield on Sunday. 


If you want to watch Fev, don't go there. Go to Doncaster.

Really fancy trying to combine this with a holiday in New Zealand.


The earlier the better as far as dates' and venues' announcements are concerned.

Congratulations Dave. Enjoy your day. I know I did. Our 16th anniversary is next week.


Advice? Narh. If it's right, it's right.


Oh aye, maybe one thing. If you don't get blind drunk you'll have much better memories of everything that happens. And you can be among the surprisingly small %age of people who actually "does the business" on their wedding night.


It's a great day. People come from far and wide to wish you all the best (and get blind drunk).

Gaskell is a class above this level, but that dive was truly pathetic.

Posted by marklaspalmas on 17 May 2015 - 07:06 PM

Very proud of all the lads for that effort. Three of them on debut, plenty of kids, 11 first teamers rested and we came up 3 points short in 71 point game.


Well done FEv!

#3117405 Cricket.....Again

Posted by marklaspalmas on 05 May 2015 - 02:51 PM

Everything that's wrong with English cricket outlined in the last three posts:


Cosy set-up where mateship is more important than being good.

Management complacency and ignorance.

Blame shifting and lack of accountability.

Moribund county scene going through the motions.

Dearth of talent development.

Light years behind other nations in all respects.

#3113549 What Exactly Do You Collect?

Posted by marklaspalmas on 29 April 2015 - 08:13 AM

If you can excuse a Rugby Union interloper?


I collect Wakefield Rugby Union memorabilia and cross into League due to former Wakefield RFC players turning pro and picking up programmes etc featuring those players.


I also research the defunct Victorian era rugby clubs of the West Riding.


Of course you are very welcome Richard. Credit to you for your work on Burglar Bill.

#3109418 Featherstone Rovers Programme Wants.

Posted by marklaspalmas on 21 April 2015 - 08:52 AM

I thought it was RL rules that a club had to issue a programme?


2009 and 2010 Championship clubs got together and produced Game On collective magazine (in the style of Australia's Big League). Some clubs carried on with their own prog, lots didn't. Some did supplementary teamsheets.

Early 1968 was the first Fev one. I think Salford were the first a week or two earlier. Fev used to number their sheets and got up to about 100 before it stopped, presumably because the archaic laws finally changed.

#3100881 james graham

Posted by marklaspalmas on 05 April 2015 - 10:38 AM

Many commentators in the papers said the ref was correct. James apologised today and admitted he didn't know the rules.


Well Rabbits, Andrew johns and Phil Gould don't know the rules either then. They said the ref got it wrong. Is the chargedown illegal in Australia?


Canterbury have obviously put Graham into damage limitation mode.

#3100434 1/3 Apr: The Kingstone Press Championship Match Thread (Easter Part One)

Posted by marklaspalmas on 04 April 2015 - 11:04 AM

Lot of angry Fev fans.  Can't tell if they played badly because we pressured them or if they just played badly!


To be expected. Everything has been heaped onto the shoulders of the rovers players and coaches (and the board due to teething troubles with a new ticketing system).


But it sounds like London were committed and organsied and played the conditions much better than us.


Im not sure how London could have forced Fev to incomplete every single set of six until the second half.
