    RAF v Army at Salford a couple of years ago I think. RAF were very impressive, took the Army to the cleaners if I remember correctly. Andrade stood out in that game.

  13. Can Rugby League ever succeed in Wales?

    Probably the same sort of fellas who were paying rugby players in the north of England . By the comments you are posting Coff you seem to be claiming that this sort of behaviour didn't happen. It most certainly did. How about Scott Gibbs who stated in his autobiography , "What really grates is people calling me a rugby prostitute, when players were being handed cash after games all the time in Wales". A friend of mine who was , at the time, a Welsh international switched from Pontypridd to Neath. One of the 'incentives' was 'travelling expenses'. They doubled it and he lived a hell of a lot closer to Neath. One of the issues that the RFU had with the Welsh authorities back in the 1900's was that players were being 'poached' from one club to another with 'incentives'. All these issues are well documented in the many books that cover this era of Welsh Union/Northern Union history. It did happen.
  14. Can Rugby League ever succeed in Wales?

    They were playing virtually the same game as up north, it was just a different governing body. Shamateurism was rife in Wales for the entire history of the game there. I should know. The WRU and the WFU before them practically encouraged it to prevent players going North , or switch to Northern Rugby Union sides set up in Wales. Google Arthur Gould. Also get a copy of the book Tries in the Valleys, it's on Amazon. Very enlightening book regarding the history of RL in Wales.
  15. England or Great Britain?

    As a matter of fact, the captain who lifted the trophy was Welsh. So I don't know why the RFL are claiming it as an English victory.
