#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.

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)

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.

P&R stifles the production of young talent

Wigan fans cheer a player being injured.


Clapped off though. Fair do's

#3099642 Catalan need to play more Frenchmen

Posted by marklaspalmas on 03 April 2015 - 12:26 PM

if we had kept licensing then catalans would have been able to field more french players, as it is now teams willl now look for the quick fix and load with antipodeans


So, the stats show that they were fielding more French players in previous seasons?

This FC / KR game has gone right off the boil.


It needed an FC comeback which doesn't look like happening.


KR will be happy enough though.


One average and one poor team on show.

#3097374 27-29 Mar: Kingstone Press Championship Round 6 Match Thread

Posted by marklaspalmas on 30 March 2015 - 01:29 PM

He was the best scrum half I've seen play over here as a junior. He was touted as far back as Stacey Jones's time in Perpignan as a future star. He then disappeared played some union I think and may be a short spell in Australia. Had two SL games at the Dragons in 2011. Finished up with Palau in recent times. I saw him play against Carcassonne a few months back when his side got a real hammering but he was by some distance their best player. And of course a stand out in the French teams win against Scotland last November when opposite Danny Brough. I hope he sticks with it at Fev.


Me too! We've had a few half-back problems since our title-winning Finn& Kain combo got broken up. I think there is little doubt about his talent, and he has enormous potential at this level.


Fev have a good record of looking after French players, including Divet, Banquet, Greseque and Zitter who all enjoyed their time with us.

#3097266 Pontential bad news for Rovers.

Posted by marklaspalmas on 30 March 2015 - 10:26 AM

Can't see anything for Fev to be worried about there.

#3096492 Dual Reg - the fightback begins

Posted by marklaspalmas on 28 March 2015 - 12:48 PM

See your point Mark, I also would be fed up of it if I was one of the main players.


I think there's some confusion. Im not on DR.


Brilliant idea though. Just think of the possibilities. Clubs can DR fans to other clubs.

#3093104 Cricket.....Again

Posted by marklaspalmas on 22 March 2015 - 01:16 PM

Batting thorugh an innings is not carrying your bat. Batting through a completed innings is carrying your bat.


Superb knock from Guptill though.


It does however highlight the current situation in world cricket (both test and limited overs) wher bat dominates over ball too much.

#3092646 Brand New TRL Sub-forum

Posted by marklaspalmas on 21 March 2015 - 01:28 PM

In case you hadn't noticed, after decades of careful planning and minutes of intense lobbying of Mr. Webmaster, TRL has a brand new sub forum.


It's called the Rugby League Collectors Forum and it's for folk to exchange info & discuss all aspects of collecting in rugby league, progarmmes, badges, jerseys, whatever.


It's also the place to talk about statistics, history and heritage connected to our wonderful sport.


We're just getting going, so if you want to get rid of a load of old programmes and newspaper cuttings, or buy them, or know a bit more about your club's history or who scored that try in that game in 1963, have a look here:
