Good luck with the fair and with the RLCF. I won't be there, but would like to show my support.


It'd be great to have a collectors/historians/stattoes forum hosted by TRL.

All credit to Hull. Let's hope the other old clubs start promoting their pre 1895 history better.

A bit absurd to start judging players' strengths & weaknesses on a v.short youtube clip.


Let's see the fella play first, eh?

Posted by marklaspalmas on 10 December 2014 - 06:16 PM

Yes. A nice prog.


Not as classy as my all-time fave from the 1952 Aussies in France:

Posted by marklaspalmas on 08 December 2014 - 05:17 PM

What the hell is going on?


Have you been asleep since May?
