    70 feet underground & not a miner.
  1. Honda SS50 then Suzuki 125, then after 20 year gap, Honda 125 (for test) followed by 2 BMW K75s, ex Cheshire Police K1100 LTSE and currently got K1100 LT. Plus a good few outings on JAWA 500 with one gear and no brakes !
  2. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/39563070 Imagine if this was RL and how the media would react ?
  3. L1 side I'm involved with say it's flights out Thursday, return Monday overnight. So Sunday and most of Monday at leisure. Still, to give fuel for more bitching, been told outbound flight is from Manchester and return to Gatwick ! (Barrow apparently have opted to fly from Glasgow instead.)
  4. Also shows a lack of initiative if a club is unable to look on the internet, see a restaurant and do a deal. Sure if they're taking 25 people there for 3 lunches/dinners there's a decent deal to be had ? A local carvery charges £4.29 with a reduction for groups over a certain size (numerically, NOT girth !), sure there's something similar in Toronto. Went on several away trips with a L1 club last season and whilst club paid for coach travel, players bought their own breakfast and on couple of occasions, dinner.

  6. Two year ban apparently. http://www.lindependant.fr/2017/02/10/dragons-catalans-tony-gigot-suspendu,2290682.php
  7. If you can't see the inconsistency then why should I point it out.
  8. http://www.rugby-league.com/article/33478/hull-kr-player-banned-for-four-matches Great play made at the time about his 'duty of care' and whilst tackle was clumsy, was not deliberate attempt to injure. "The Compliance Manager submits that the MRP do not submit the player had any intention to injure his opponent. - See more at: http://www.rugby-league.com/the_rfl/disciplinary#advSearch " Fine example of views changing from season to season. Consistency ? Nah
  9. Surely they just need a few basics ? La marche du wigan Mangeur de tartes Nous n'avons pas perdu, nous avons juste manqué de temps C'était une mauvaise journée au bureau Je pense que l'arbitre a eu de meilleurs jeux Once some kind person has translated those into Wiganese, they'll have mastered the basics
  10. Though had you seen the cringeworthy appearance by Emlyn Hughes for GB v France match you may well reconsider !
  11. Seem to remember that by second game it had changed to teams emerged then Stevo announced their names but as I saw that game in bar in Paris may well be wrong.
  12. Yes and it seemed to take forever as each player came out as their name was announced. Oddly enough this innovation had been dispensed with by the second game !
  13. Or just go back to the Bears or is that now property of Coventry ?
  14. As a long term cyclist as well as a motorist (both car and motorbike) I have zero sympathy for any cyclist without lights that gets knocked off. If they are stupid enough to go out in the dark without lights then they should waive all rights and accept liability rather than the car driver being held responsible. Before anybody says, NO I am not suggesting open season on bike riders, just let anybody stupid enough to go out without lights that not only are they breaking the law, they have no leg to stand on if they get knocked off !
