    For a less serious look at the NRL, try This Week In League. Not suitable for children.
  2. Favourite commentary

    The old 101 Top Rugby League Tries video has many, many classic commentaries from both Eddie Waring and Ray French.
  3. On the TotalHockey website, they have a cross-code forum where anyone talking about ice hockey is banished to. They also refer to ice hockey as "hit 'n' slash" and point out any time hockey is discriminated against in the mainstream media.
  4. Favourite commentary

    Keith Macklin's autobiography would be interesting. I can see a few used copies on Amazon - might take a look.
  5. Favourite commentary

    "...and he does a bit of a boogie!"
  6. Mahe Fonua

    I've mentioned it on this forum before. Fonua is not highly rated in the NRL - he is well down the pecking order for wingers at Wests Tigers. When he was last in the NRL, he had suspect handling and dodgy defence. Thompson has played really well in the first few NRL rounds. Funny how it goes sometimes.
  7. Is Kendall trying to use the force to ref this one. But it's like he doesn't quite believe yet - like Luke early on in A New Hope. Also, good to see one of the Peaky Blinders on the wing and kicking goals for KR. And I love the way the Robin mascot runs up the wing when there is a break - good support play. Perhaps Kendall will award him a try later in the match?
  8. Let's see what Nick Scrotum has in his bag of tricks
  9. Maybe they should fit all the players with earpieces so Bentham can tell them his decisions from the comfort of the video booth. It'd be quicker.
  10. I know the weather was bad but was it beyond Sky to stick up some rain covers for the main camera positions? Or wipe the lens? I know they want TV viewers to feel like they are at the game but that doesn't extend to hardly being able to see the players. Up your game Sky.
  11. I like Cas' new tactic of playing all their games at home this season. What a wheeze.
  12. Huh - what happened at the end there? Did the game finish early?
  13. Sadly, not being televised live on Sky in New Zealand
  14. Toronto (Merged threads)

    Slap Shot - not a massive film in Britain but some will have heard of it.
  15. The atmosphere at the game was amazing - like no game I've been to before. The noise when Tonga scored their third try was incredible. I swear the concrete in the floor of the stand was shaking. On the knock on at the end, the ref calls it straight away. I've always thought that when a ref calls it straight away, it can't go to the video ref no matter what happens after that.
