In Topic: Curtis Johnston denied visa to play at Leigh

26 November 2014 - 12:32 PM

He was the player that took the first hit in the Aussie Doping purge when at Souths, resulting in him being suspended pending investigation and losing his jersey. He was then cleared and had never tested positive before during and after this, indeed it looks like a set up when you look at how he was 'named'

He looked a great kid who would be in SL next season, much better than most that have been accepted by the RFL - how do they decide who gets in and who doesn't, is it set in stone criteria or how somebody feels on any given day?

Leigh at present have no non GB passport holders in the squad btw that will change on Saturday night

 

Work Visas arent denied for no reason -I very much doubt the doping thing had anything to do with it though.

Presumably he didnt meet the requirements to work in the UK.

 

Maybe a skeleton or 2 in the closet?


In Topic: Robbie Hunter-Paul to return to playing?

Golden Boot winner? Admittedly he nearly pipped Sinfield to it, but when did he win it?


I thought he had a few years back, ill bow down to your superior knowledge then.

Ok wobbie thanks for the comparison.
I played with mirfield 2006 and live in batley.
Sparks and paul could save embarassment and quit while there ahead.
Ill be making one in just to put the shoulder on the kiwi egomaniac


Someone with a year in Yorkshire League division 5 versus a 27 cap kiwi international and former golden boot winner - even if Robbie was 60 i know who my momey would be on for chasing shadows all afternoon.

Had the pleasure of meeting Robbie on a couple of occasions and found him to be a very nice down to earth guy.

Good luck to him and all at the new Mirfield club, hope they make a success of it.

In Topic: volunteering with the club

Was talking to a friend last night, Leeds Beckett university and Huddersfield Uni both apparently do sports marketing degree courses.

I think its worthwhile the club getting in touch and seeing if the students fancy some volunteer internship \ work experience - they would surely jump at the chance of the experience and it, would be a great benefit to the club and look great on their CVs.
