  1. RIP Roy Haggerty

    One of the games great characters, I loved watching him play. RIP Roy
  2. Cumbria Derby

    So they are, I stand corrected so thanks for pointing it out. In my (poor) defence, I looked at the fixture a while ago and noticed how many times all 3 clubs are away or at home at the same time including the 3rd team being at home during a derby, I thought (without checking) that this was one of those times. Hopefully your prediction will be nearer the mark than mine
  3. Cumbria Derby

    Could go either way this one. Egremont are playing better this season than for the last few while The Brow are starting to get bodies back and hit some form. Think they will be looking at 1000+ would love to see 1500 but that may be a little out of reach especially with Kells at home. To add extra spice to the occasion the A teams meet on Friday night at Egremont with both teams unbeaten so far this season
  4. Free sports TV coverage

    I don't think it even hit the ground there
  5. Free sports TV coverage

    Wonder where she gets that from
  6. Great news for International Rugby League in general and Tonga in particular if true but I am very worried about the welfare of the Australian players
  7. RLWC 2021 Venues

    A lot of good ideas there, I especially like the one I've highlighted - me and a mate had a great weekend in 2013 doing all 4 quarter finals which was made possible by their location. I'd really be up for doing a Fri/Sat/Sun game during the group and Q/F stages
  8. The RFL should be asking the RLPA if they have consulted with the players who are likely to be playing in this test as they are there to represent the players and every single report of the players opinions I have seen is that they want to play in this test. If the RLPA has not consulted, which seems to be the case, then the RFL should inform the RLPA they will respond to any letter when the affected players have been consulted and their views taken into account.

    What's the saying? "When someone shows you who they are, believe them" Pitiful attempt to row back from his comments, Alain Doucet has shown who he is and I believe him
  10. I have no idea what the TV figures are but would be interested to know. I hope they are large and growing for all the teams in the competition. Having watched Egremont, Kells and Wath Brow regularly in the NCL I would estimate a 'normal' crowd to be 200-300 for a home match, and with all 3 teams being within 5 miles of each other, usually more than double that for the derby games when neutrals are taken into account - I've been told by people taking the money that there have been in excess of 1000 at Egremont V Wath Brow games. Of course the above figure are not helped by the NCL regularly having all 3 teams at home (or away) on the same weekend this year, or having the 3rd team at home when there's a derby on, as this prevents people like me going to another game when their preferred team are playing away
  11. Not sure if I am reading you correctly, are you asking that if there had been no television cameras would the crowd be 100 or so? The crowd was typical of what you would get at any game between any of Egremont, Kells or Wath Brow, if anything it was probably slightly down on what I expected to see there.
  12. He's been a very good player for a few seasons now Walker-Taylor, I don't think I have ever seen him have a bad game
  13. I would wager that both sets of wingers will receive more passes than they did yesterday
  14. Should be a great turn out today, looking forward to it. Nice to see it get played on a day when the 3rd Cumbrian team doesn't have a home game also
  15. Yes it is, there should never have been the need to sign such a letter but I'm glad they have stood together and demonstrated their feelings
