  1. Reading League Express today, this is my prediction of how things will pan out. Named up in North Queensland are Scotland, Tonga, Samoa, Fiji and USA. They will probably make up five teams from the two three team groups with one European qualifier. Perhaps the other European qualifier in the double header mentioned is actually Scotland. Then we've two four team groups. If reports are correct then it's England, Australia and Lebanon and they will have to be joined by Papua New Guinea who will host all three in Port Moresby. Other games to be played as stated in Melbourne and Sydney. That leaves New Zealand hosting a group with France and two European qualifiers. GROUP A Australia England Lebanon Papua New Guinea GROUP B New Zealand France European Qualifier European Qualifier GROUP C Scotland Tonga Samoa GROUP D Fiji USA European Qualifier There again, I'm probably completely wrong.
  2. A Simon Cooper was interviewed on the BBC about it in the last hour. He was at France v Germany. I wonder if that's our Simon Cooper, who's on this board, the guy who's one of the RL Deutschland organisers?
  3. By my reckoning it is. I think Southend v Huddersfield was the previous record - http://www.dropkickbooks.co.uk/2012/11/kent-invicta-part-three.html. I also know that if the clubs don't declare the crowd, the media rep at the ground does it for them.
  4. Scorpions are going through a rough time right now, no doubt about it. A win against Oxford may have helped a bit but that wasn't to be. Whilst all the problems can't be solved straight away, everyone needs to stick together to make it all work in South Wales. Chris Thair from WRL has this morning asked for a statement to be posted on the Scorpions forum to explain a number of issues and hopefully that'll help matters. It's fantastic to see the Conference South and indeed Welsh Conference teams doing well. Valley Cougars continue to lead on player quality and they're top of that league right now having only lost one game, to fellow Welsh side, The Raiders, in their first game of the season (and they were dreadful that day). Torfaen are doing so well on and off the field too and have a great connection with the Scorpions too and are regular supporters of the club. I speak to their chairman regularly. Like Gateshead had a massive downturn in fortunes for a number of years, it's now our turn in South Wales. But they survived and are now stronger. Hopefully the same can happen with South Wales.
  5. I know it's a sell-out but does anyone have one spare ticket they can sell me at cover price please? PM me if you can. Sorry to mods if this sort of appeal isn't allowed. Thanks.
  6. Everyone at Wales Rugby League is devastated to hear about the passing of former Celtic Crusaders, Aberavon Fighting Irish, Bridgend Blue Bulls, Wales and Wales Dragonhearts winger Paul Morgan, aged 40 following a short illness. A full obituary will appear on the WRL and Scorpions websites very soon. RIP Paul. He was a good friend of mine, very sad news. First Celtic Crusaders first team member to leave us.

  9. This is just a query. I've found a Thomas Bosc playing rugby union for Perpignan. http://www.espn.co.uk/francetop14/rugby/match/99458.html This was on the same day, albeit six hours before, a Catalans v Hull KR match in the same city. Bosc played just nine minutes for USAP and didn't ever play again. There's no record of a date of birth for him on the rugby union records either. Does anyone remember if this was "our" Thomas Bosc that came on for USAP in some kind of publicity thing? It seems extremely unlikely but very coincidental none the same.

  11. Does that mean Hemel are more traditional than Sheffield as they're four years older? Or does "traditional" mean "Sheffield and further north but south of Gateshead?"
  12. http://www.scorpionsrl.com/article.php?id=10442 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=321068443459 Got to be seen. A great investment opportunity.
  13. 9pm tonight BBC2 Wales. Sky 102 / 971 - DURATION: 30 MINUTES Previews of Swansea City v Chelsea and Bolton v Cardiff City. Plus interviews with Billy Boston, Jayne Ludlow and current Wales Sports Personality of the Year Chaz Davies.
  14. Crusaders are northern but they're not M62. I personally think BBC's coverage in Wales especially has gone down hill this year despite the team performing well. They cut the live radio coverage that they did from Bridgend every game, they refused to recognise South Wales Scorpions online, they refuse to acknowledge any development, they editted out the under 23 Wales side from rhe online release plus of course they still don't show The Super League Show. BBC1 Wales news have been okay but that's down to one man who works there rather than the corporation itself.
  15. Great win for the under 18s today though. Beating Catalans, kids who were brought up with RL, is no mean feat. http://www.crusadersrfl.com/article.php?id=2663
