About Marty Funkhouser

  1. Eh..?? It's a defeat for poor decision making over a number of years from the Catalan Dragons...it truly lies all at their own door. There has been no conspiracy to weaken the Catalan club... Totally agree... There is some complete naive, fantasist nonsense on Total RL but this hits some nails...
  2. 1; George Fairbairn 2: Clive Sullivan 3: Mike Smith 4: Gary Prohm 5: Alan Burwell 6: Roger Millward 7: Paul Harkin 8: Mark Broadhurst 9: David Watkinson 10: Len Casey 11: Phil Lowe 12:Arthur Beetson 13: Gavin Miller 14: Frank Foster 15: Harry Poole 16: Chris Burton 17: Brian Lockwood Anybody care to name how many GB captains in the above... And could anyone beat 8 - 17 in a "wrestle"..????
  3. If that was the case Parky i think Mr Hudgell would be wanting back from the RFL his 1 and a half million he has wasted on this season...could have just kept on Webster, played the young kids and not bothered with all the off the field staff...
  4. Wigan need to win 10 of their last 12 games just to have a slim chance of reaching the top 4...not going to happen 9/2 is a terrible, terrible price...
  5. You best brush upon your RL knowledge...if 46 GB caps ( record), top try scorer in Australia , inducted into West Tigers hall of fame, Man of Steel, World record transfer fee holder etc etc is not reaching sporting heights then 99% of players must be amateurs... Whether or not you like his opinion is your personal choice but the guy was a top , top player. Cannot be denied in any size , shape or form.
  6. Yes indeed, small time time sport stuff yet again...embarrassing for the Wigan club who are admitting a poor football team rule the roost (and call the shots) in their area. As others have pointed out though at least we get a more appetising match to watch.
  7. Only the same as the comment he quoted. A minimum wage of £80-90,000 , which has no seemingly logical basis, would end Super League overnight...
  8. You do know we finished 2nd at the 2016 Olympics?...best medal total since 1908...13 Boxing world champions...Tour de France winners, Tennis Grand Slam winners etc etc...you're pretty one eyed at the best of times but 3rd rate nation??? Rugby League maybe but we are pretty good at many sports...
  9. Nothing is been done to teach anybody that's the point...Unfortunately the RFU have had to show us the standards expected of a governing body with regards clubs seriously and possibly deliberately failing to meet their obligations.
  10. I believe Bradford are in this predicament entirely of "Bradford's" own volition...why this qualifies them for "favours" is not clear...they seem to be the RBS of the RL world.
  11. Hull KR will walk it by a margin...
  12. That's not the point at all...and i agree with some of your sentiment but it does not hide that fact that i could probably write a close enough script of the game and the plays contained within , before its played...from tackle 1 of set 1 to tackle 6 of set 40 the formula is pretty much the same game wide. If on Sunday evening you can point out a dozen moments of individuality or flair i will be amazed.
  13. Have you see any RL in the last few years?? The days of risk, flair , creativity and playing what you see are long gone ...
  14. If Huddersfield lose next week the game against Hull KR will probably be an anti climax as they would have to win by about 50 points or more in East Hull , assuming Fev carry on as they have. Huddersfields only hope of avoiding the MPG is to win next week... If Salford can knock up two massive scores however then Hull KR might need to win...
  15. If only the ground WAS in the middle of the council owned East Park...would only be 20 billion percent better than its current site!!!
