  1. Epic encounter in prospect - and Johnathon Thurston and Shaun Johnson worth the admission price alone - sit back and enjoy RL at its best
  2. As far as I can recall, when I started watching ORLFC around 1955, the two clubs in the town were referred to as Oldham Rugby and Latics. I can't remember anyone saying "are you going to the Roughyeds on Saturday".
  3. Well they won't ever be able to deny you're their granddad - inter generational triplets ! Great picture Tony - two more Roughyeds fans for life
  4. Thanks Bryan.
  5. I know it's not strictly an RL / ORLFC matter but what was the issue between Paul Phillips and the Celtic fans ?
  6. Congratulations Dave - couldn't be a more deserving winner of the award.
  7. Haha - can't have that ! In Australian Rules Football the amount of statistics would make your eyes water. If you Google " How are statistics in AFL compiled " you should find " AFL Statistics / Passy's World of Mathematics " - fascinating little video on how a company called Champion Data do their job. Let's hope for the next three games the stats that keep you really busy are the number of tries ORLFC score.
  8. I understand but I was interested in the method you use - in real time, by watching a video of the game, with or without assistants or whatever
  9. Great work mb - what is your method for compiling the stats ?
  10. Just watched the video ( thanks Dave ) Agree 100% mate.
  11. Too true BR - a long line of them, from Alex Murphy, Tommy Bishop, Andy Gregory and continuing.
  12. That's notice that a winding up order is being sought by the Tax Office. All other creditors will now come crawling out of the woodwork.
  13. Criticising referees gets you nowhere. Laurie Daley has been constantly criticising the refereeing from Origin 1 and is being ridiculed, not surprisingly, in the Queensland media. Older heads in NSW are saying he should concentrate on getting the team to produce more. Playing some teams that are full time was part and parcel of getting into the higher division. When the going gets tough, the tough get going - let's hope the squad, however small, can turn things around.
  14. Just a random thought - how good must it be for the players to have a coach of the stature of Scott Naylor. They obviously know what he's like as a coach but as a player himself - been there - done that. Not exactly " my dad's bigger than your dad " but we're his boys and we're up for it. To all fellow posters on here - have a fabulous day at Fortress Fold - enjoy whatever the result Better go and have a lie down now !
  15. I think that was Sloan's Linament, commonly referred to as " th'orse bottle" - lethal
