    Has there ever been a Catalan vs Basque event. Not sure of the logistics but if it were possible am sure it would create some interest and passion.
  2. Players should be restricted to a play a maximum number of games. Sometimes less means more.

    RL 'fans' putting the sport down

    These moans don't even register with the general public, we are anonymous, our public profile is equivalent to some fading pop star, Alvin Stardust maybe, occasionally recalled in people's subliminal memory. My Coo Ca Choo.
  5. It's amazing we haven't got sponsors for the GB tour later this year with all the preparation that has gone into that. Just about sums this topic up.

    You do realise..

    Your Mom is Tom Walker? Strange folk up the road.
  7. The RFL should print a massive poster for their office stating "Never Again", write this series off and plan ahead for full houses for the next year. With the proviso that failure means redundancy.

    Job is too big for Rimmer?

    He was presenting the medals at Women's grand final. Nobody recognized him, wasn't pro active, just a forlorn figure waiting to be told what to do. Felt almost sorry for him till I remembered the 300,000.
  9. Are the England Knights games televised?

    Rugby League Viewing Figures Down Again

    From what what I recall there was no giants parked out on the wing hoping for a hit or miss basketball. It was a while ago though.

    Rugby League Viewing Figures Down Again

    Was watching a game from the 80s not long ago and the flow of the game was so much better even with contested scrums. There was no wrestling, not so much kicking on the 6th, no pathetic play acting, the ref was always right and every team had creative half backs . This is not some Luddite rant, I appreciate the was far too much thuggery and the players today are fitter and more athletic. I think if we had the more fluent game of the 80s combined with the athletes of today the game would sell itself. The game is over analysed. over sanitised and frankly boring.

    Brian Barwick Alert

    £250,000 for Rimmer.!! There are lots of candidates out there who would jump at the chance for a lot less money and with a lot more ideas. Phil Caplan for me has a wonderful overview of the game and has tremendous ideas and solutions, if only he could find a suit that fits him! There just appears to be a closed shop, no transparency or communication which breeds contempt and disillusionment among supporters.

    Wigan sign Bullock from Barrow

    I think Joe himself would admit his improvement would be a mixture of his own determination and some great coaching from Paul Crarey and his staff. Good luck Joe you deserve every accolade you will receive, you have been fantastic for Barrow.
  14. Its over 9 years since Barrow won the Championship trophy. Within 2 years we were relegated and castigated as cheats for breaking the salary cap and Des Johnson the chairman was RL enemy No 1. We were relegated after having all our points deducted, the chairman banned for 8 years and it has taken the club years to recover. Now clubs are lauded for spending fortunes. My question is when did all this change ? Desi wasn`t everybody's cup of tea and we have a good chairman now but was he ahead of his time with his spending habits.
