    Brian McDermott new Toronto Wolfpack coach

    Just typical RL forum chatter - which doesn't reflect the views of most of the game's supporters (apart from my posts, of course!),

    Keighley

    But are clubs viable with only 9 home games? Interesting times, as the Chinese curse goes.

    The referee wore a dinner jacket...

    I think that they only wore blazers for big games like Cup Finals. In the earliest days it was even more bizarre with some refs pictured wearing what look like plus-fours and jackets and it could even extend to the players. There's a picture of the 1910 Queensland final between Ipswich and Toombul where the Toombul scrum half is still wearing his hat! (Before any clever clogs asks, Ipswich won 17-2).

    Hemel pull out of League 1

    My problem is that I'm having no difficulty in reading it.

    11 Nov: Wales v Ireland KO 3pm (BBC Online)

    Fully agree, a very pleasant afternoon at the Racecourse. Only slight niggle would be about discipline, concede a lot of unnecessary penalties in the first 20 minutes like we saw today against a better side and we'd probably end up on the wrong end of a good mullering but I'll trust John Kear to sort that out over the next coming on for three years.

    Challenge Cup Final Tickets

    Just sent for mine, anyway. Interesting to see that there's a French language option on the application form - has the RFL's Ouija board revealed something?

    Who have you got to win the Championship?

    You really haven't cottoned on to what being a true RL supporter means. Let me educate you. At this stage of the close season you would reckon that your club has no chance of doing anything because (1)The coach is useless and should have been replaced by your mate who works as a bin man in Winnipeg (2) The few players that the club have condescended to sign wouldn't make an over 80s five a side soccer team. (3)Your mother's hairdresser's dog has heard that the club chairman has withdrawn his financial support and so you are either going bust or he's sold it to an itinerate Tibetan yak herdsman. I hope this helps,
