In Topic: Ed Miliband

Yesterday, 09:44 PM

I see the likes of the two Edcases and shake my head in disbelief when I compare them to someone like Alan Johnson. I saw Johnson on HIGNFY last night and he is everything these people aren't. I know it's a TV comedic quiz but he's naturally comfortable in front of the camera, self-effacing, humorous, sharp witted and someone you can warm to. How these charisma bypass automatons can be seen as a better choice to lead the Labour Party is absolutely beyond me.

In Topic: New signing

He has a good pedigree, came through Huddersfield Giants academy system before going to Oz to play for the last 2 years. Good try scoring record in Oz too, and made the competition's team of the year in both of his seasons there. Should be a very useful signing.

I know nothing about Kingston Park.  What size is the venue etc etc.


10,000 capacity, owned by Northumbria University, a few miles out of town up near the racecourse.
