  3. Off topic, I know. But we're all doomed! Doomed I tells ye, DOOMED!!!!
  4. Hull FC reporter Paul Clarke takes a look at the key talking points to come out of the Black and Whites' 34-10 victory over Warrington Wolves. Excellent defence The final scoreline might tell the casual observer that this game was easy for the Black and Whites but that is far from the truth. In actual fact, there were key moments in the game when Hull had to defend their own line to keep in control of the contest.Defending their own line was the weakness in heavy defeats earlier this month but...

  9. with all due respect the majority of these players are born & raised in NZ & Australian backyards and are eligible to play for Samoa through ancestry. But if you mean weak regulations allowing players selected on ancestry being allowed to swap nations in the same year and governing bodies exploiting those weak regulations to bolster there teams then you have a very good point
  10. When their relegation to the Championship was confirmed, Hull KR were nailed on to lose their star names. Included in that group, you presume, was James Greenwood. A product of the Wigan Warriors system, suitors came circling and rightly so. Impressive performances in Red and White after first arriving on loan had earned him a long-term deal at KCOM Craven Park before disaster struck last October in the Million Pound Game. Effectively off-contract due to the loss to Salford Red Devils,... View the full article
  11. Tim Sheens is calling on his experienced Hull KR players to ensure all focus is reverted to the Robins' Championship campaign and the priority of promotion. Rovers hit the headlines last week after a Challenge Cup 'upset' at Super League side Leigh Centurions but the KR boss is reluctant to currently discuss the knockout competition, such is the importance of getting back to winning ways in the domestic league. Suffering defeat last time out in Toulouse on Easter Monday, Sheens insists... View the full article
  12. as an outsider looking in at this I would have to say NO. Avignon haven't won French Elite 1 competition many years running and outgrown that competition. There a few other reasons why I think that as well... mostly around game in France retaining a base to grow from..., and Championship 1 being used as a speed bump for professional non UK clubs against clubs that are very Semi Pro.
  13. Big match preview of Hull KR's Championship clash against Rochdale Hornets at KCOM Craven Park, Sunday, 3pm Gareth Westmorland's opinion THE Robins' first defeat of the Championship campaign, a 14-6 reverse in Toulouse, seems a hell of a long time ago. Such was the heights of beating Super League outfit Leigh Centurions last time out in the Challenge Cup, the loss in the South of France appears to have slipped under the carpet in some quarters, innocently, we should add. However that cannot... View the full article
  14. Since he got moved back to the wing Mahe Fonua has made 66 carries for 615 metres. He has made 16 tackle busts and 8 offloads and scored three tries. He's done all that in 3 games.
  15. Is this for the 2018 season?
  16. Yes of course it's a positive and needs duly noting but at no time should we simply be grateful for the odd article or mention and certainly not poor research, that's what we have forums for!
  17. Avignon should try to recruit some of the cream of French Elite 1 (e.g. Remy Marginet) if they make it into League One. I know that this policy will damage the French domestic competition in the short term. But in the medium term, if Avignon makes it into the Championship, and Toulouse into Super League, Avignon's heightened status will probably improve France's Elite One by encouraging more French youth to try rugby league. It will also do the world of good for the quality of the French national team. The ideal outcome would be to have Catalans joined by Toulouse and Avignon in Super League. It would really help France to reemerge as a major rugby league nation.
  18. I can't believe people are saying this. Bennett is literally the best coach of all time....
  19. I think the best thing that could happen for Rugby League internationally at the moment is Samoa and Tonga find a good sponsor that allows them to pay their players a similar wage to Australia and New Zealand. Suddenly our game would have 2 nations on a very similar level to the top 3 and the 3 horse race would become a 5 horse race. I'm not sure how sponsorship works with these kind of things, if a nation just sits back and hopes someone expresses interest one day or if someone from management goes out and hunts for sponsors. If the later is the case then management should be non stop knocking on doors to try and find something. More games means more advertising for their sponsor so that would help to. New Zealand, Samoa Tonga yearly Tri-series anyone?
  20. This was an assault. Totally unacceptable. Should be charged as a criminal assault. Having said that, it's just another example of mental instability that needs to be addressed in sport. It's an example to each other and our kids. There's toughness, and mental weakness / instability. There's rules and there's consequences for breaking rules. This is the extreme pits of an example, but I think it should be a trigger to improve our sport to champion mental health issues.
  21. See this is my point, Castleford are mentioned in the national? Press, regardless of the details. Is this not a positive?
  22. No argument, more a discussion😎
  23. No they all go to watch "Fev", hence the amazing crowds!!!
  24. Yesterday
  25. And then played for Dews!! ... if my memory serves me well!!
  26. Thank you John. You have been more informative. It is interesting that the local branches won't make the decision about who is to be the candidate. Mixed views about this as some of the branch views I like whereas others I don't.
  27. It's certainly a few war chests in one hit!
