    Anyone know which teams played in the semis and the final And who won?
  2. Watching breakfast tv (Sophie Ridge On Sunday) this morning and I'm sure that the labour party chairman Ian Lavery said that tackling anti Semitism in the Labour party was 'a massive challenge.'

    The TV Thread

    Like you I didn't think much of it for the first few episodes and was going to stop watching, but I stuck with it, and believe me it slowly creeps up on you. Wouldn't miss it now.

    SKY Robots

    Are the BBC still using the cartoon rugby league players to promote / introduce the Challenge Cup & Internationals? They must be five or six year old as well. Both Sky and Beeb could do with giving their RL 'intros' an update.
  5. Now I might have got the wrong end of the stick, but I bumped into a chap on Saturday at one of the games, and whilst putting the world to rights he asked if I had heard the latest from last weeks Community Conference. (I've never actually heard of the community conference.) He said he has been told by someone that was there (Chinese whispers ?) that in 2019 it is being considered scrapping several leagues, mainly from the midlands and south, and having all the clubs in two 'large pots', one of premier league teams and one of 1st Div/Merit teams. He said that because of complaints from clubs about the lack of games - some teams in some leagues are only playing six games per season, (three home x three away) - and the idea would be for clubs to arrange their own games with each other, (probably from their own current league teams, and also nearby ones), thereby having the flexibility to have as many or as few games as they wish. I can see quite a few flaws in this suggestion. I have 'done a google' but found nothing mentioned anywhere. Has anyone else heard anything along these lines, or was he just winding me up?

    Pity about MK and Bristol, but good on St Albans and Bath, both teams willing to travel to get a game.
  8. Search rugby sound effects - " Rugby union match in progress, crowd reaction with lots of quiet periods. "
  9. Local Lib Dem councillors come round a couple of times a year seeing how things are going in our area, very open and easily contacted. Never seen any Labour and only see Tory at election times. As a few have already said, will vote Lib Dem locally, but not nationally.
  10. Just been reading this in The Guardian, talk of running candidates in the next general election. - "A new political party with access to up to £50m in funding has been secretly under development for more than a year by a network of entrepreneurs, philanthropists and donors keen to “break the Westminster mould”, the Observer can reveal. " Full article here - https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/apr/07/new-political-party-break-mould-westminster-uk-brexit Could they be any worse than what we have now?

    Regional leagues 2018

    That was the original suggestion, an eight team league, but at last weeks meeting Luton and Kings Lynn elected to go into the 1st Div (not sure with who else though.) Not sure where Hemel B will be playing.
