  1. Wow,this is certainly a bolt from the blue and shows that the new administration are very serious about getting the Bulls into a top club again. Toovey won`t be going over there for peanuts either,so let`s see how it all goes. Todd Carney`s off to Salford,so it looks like Michael Dobson will be out on his backside again,poor bloke`s had more clubs that Jack Nicklaus!!
  2. Just seen somewhere that Andrew Chalmers and Graham Lowe are the new blokes in charge,with Henry Paul touted as the new coach. A Kiwi connection of some note it would seem?
  3. Hmmm,well I don`t think it`ll be James Roberts then. He`s been a naughty boy again and could be history at the Broncos after the shenanigans at some nightclub on the Gold Coast on Saturday night. I think many people will say to Wayne Bennett,"told you so",Roberts definitely a high risk,but then again,it`s still up to the individual. Some blokes never know when they`re well off.
  4. Wow,big happenings now in Bradford. Rohan Smith is history,Henry Paul reportedly taking over as coach for fellow Kiwis Andrew Chalmers and Graham Lowe,who are the "new owners". All the players will stay full timers,so they must think there`s potential for a strong club again. Time will tell.
  5. Everybody knew there was a "new" Bradford Bulls just waiting in the wings,why would the coach and the players keep hanging around if it was otherwise? Another joke,but I seem to recall that Bradford,whether Bulls or Northern have always had money problems. Somebody please help me here,but I seem to remember in the early sixties when they were perpetual cellar dwellers with Hornets,Liverpool City,Doncaster,Dewsbury and a few more,they either went broke,or came close to it and the players were only part time then,probably on a fiver a week or summat. It would appear the more things change,the more they stay the same.
  6. Well I counted at least five ex NRL players in the Salford line,possibly one or two more who I`ve either forgotten or didn`t know of,so it just shows the massive gap between an average Super League side and the players Hornets have. Still,I guess there`s not much point playing an inferior team as you learn nowt from those,so I`m sure Kilshaw would`ve been relatively pleased. You on holiday in January Tyrone? Ahhh,the bracing winter air of Aberdeen,you just can`t beat it!!
  7. Yeah right!!

  9. Fair comment sir,but put the blame on those cretins in Canberra,us "normal people" have to get on with it,no matter what the colour of our backsides are. The biggest racist I`ve seen in Australia is a certain boxer who used to play for St.George,you may remember him.
  10. So all us Honkies are racialist are we? Must`ve been my fault that Chris Sandow behaves like this in public. Nobody forces people to take drugs or drink to excess. People need to be accountable for what they do,not blame everybody else. I know where you`re coming from,but don`t tarnish us all with the same brush mate. I`m married to a none white lady,have been for 35 years and we laugh at our cultural differences,so I`d advise you to do the same from time to time. It does help.
  11. Very sad news this,just hope you do a Rochdale Hornets and come back stronger than ever.
  12. Exactly mate!!
  13. As were the mighty Rochdale Hornets!! Happy New Year mate,looking forward to our tussle at your "new ground" in Staleybridge very soon.
  14. Yes,compliments of the season to ALL Rugby League fans wherever you may be. I may not agree with some comments on here,but respect your opinions nonetheless. Happy New Year and lets get our game on again ASAP!!
  15. I`ve been thinking about this over the last few days. I can understand lawyers getting involved here,parasites just waiting to suck the blood out of McKinnon`s bank account should he succeed,but I can`t get my head around the Players Union getting involved. They say they support McKinnon,but what about Jordan McClean,who will certainly be under the microscope here,having copped an eleven match ban from memory,thereby being held responsible by the judiciary,so surely the Players Union have to support him too. In a similar vein,the family of Phillip Hughes haven`t sued Australian cricket nor the bowler for Hughes tragic death a couple of years ago,though they could argue a fault in the design of the helmet that allowed the ball to hit him where it did. No,McKinnon needs to get some better advice than to listen to greedy lawyers,there`s the financial future of thousands of people to be considered here too. A successful claim against the game (NRL) would see all contact sport drastically changed in the coming years,none for the better.
