    Great Britain Origin Series - West vs East

    No chance - could be quite close thinking about it with all the Southern players now up north like LMS and McMeeken. could be a lot of biff too

    Magic weekend confirmed in Liverpool

    Repeat fixtures in different comps felt completely different though to lots of SL repeats

    Great Britain Origin Series - West vs East

    For me, the only Origin that could work is North v South, however this would require the South to be competitive and we need far more players down here. It’s the same issue with France and the other Ctic nations Did Rugby ever have North v South before the breakaway?
  4. Mickey mouse cup with a mickey mouse name Terrible idea. Players should only grace Wembley if they deserve it

    Lions tour 2019 (Merged Threads)

    The clover was always on GB shirts from at least the 30s through to the 70’s as part of the beautiful ornate lions badge with the red rose, daffodil and thistle
  6. The main issue for TWP is that the final will not be in Canada even if they come top. Joke-wise it will likely be a near as possible to whoever they are playing - prob at Wire or Saints if if Widnes get to final

    What shape will Leigh be in next year?

    Beaumont should have had a backup plan if Leigh didnt make the top 4 so we could have survived not making the cut. We had too many players on daft long term contracts with no break clauses. To be fair to Beaumont, the problem is that many players wont sign contracts with break clauses if other clubs dont have them. In my opinion the risk is too much on the shoulders on clubs (and fans) rather than players who underperform as a unit. Hence it is better if all clubs offered break clauses

    Because they didn’t perform if the club came bottom. If all clubs stood together and had these clauses then no-one would be on the brown stuff if a club got relegated and we wouldnt need unfair parachute payments

    2025 world cup - france option....

    France played a test up north near Lille a few years ago and got over 11k against Wales. Worth having a pool up there

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    The crowd was great IMO for a test against NZ. If this had been on Sat as planned it could have been close to a sellout. I grew up watching tests v NZ at Headingley with 15k

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    IMO this is a very good crowd at Anfield. Looks good on tv down here in a Surrey pub

    London Signings

    The good thing about the middle 8s was that the promoted team had already have assembled a good enough team to compete. Therefore in theory the Broncos should only need one or two extra signings if that
