About Rodill Rover

  1. Not sure if it would be classed as uncool but a favourite of mine discovered on a work visit to Newcastle 45 years ago was Pease Pudding then served on a hot sausage sandwich, now I can still buy from Lidl in Yorkshire and it adds nicely to a ham sandwich for me.
  2. Vince was an outstanding prop, powerful drives in and as OF says knew just when to release the ball. One of my greats of the game, a sad loss.
  3. There are none so blind as those who will not see
  4. I can't help with your requests Jeff, I can second the quality of York Brewery beers though. Yorkshire Terrier being my favourite. I have recently found bottled versions in Morrisons and is a good substitute for the draught version.
  5. It's getting worse, freezing all the time and messages about long running script, adobe pdf missing. It's only this site out of many I use. I love the site but it is getting too much, are there any remedies available?
  6. Yes, I have the same, making it hard work and patience.
  7. Ref's own words were 'knock on'. Ignore the commentary clowns
  8. I will go for 2 who could work an audience with facial expressions and body language before a word was spoken, and one who is getting towards that. 1. Eric Morecombe 2. Tommy Cooper 3. Tim Vine
  9. I was privileged to watch him play at his best before going to Australia to make further success in a tough game for a pom in that era. A great ambassador for the game. For anyone who wants his full story his book 'Stevo: Looking Back' is a great insight into the game at the time and what he faced in Australia. I hope that in time his commentary style that irked the well informed fans of the game will eventually be seen as it was, Showmanship to sell the game to the new viewers on Sky.
  10. There is always a danger in passing judgement of what went on beyond most of our own recollections. We now have 2 differing versions of the tour of 1957 (and there are probably more). We can never know for certain what the real version was. The form of prejudice highlighted by the OP is thankfully eliminated from our sport and always will be. My own preference is to look back at Rugby League history with a positive spin, and to that end recall first ever seeing Billy Boston play, I was about 8 at the time and was in awe of him as he both outpaced other players and powered his way to a hat trick of tries against my team.
  11. A 'absolutely furious' second stanza' 'claret' treble for me.
  12. Mucky fat, now there is a treat that is getting harder to find. It should be given a regional protection.
  13. I have to agree on this one, the litter ejecting traveler/motorist is a big annoyance to me, the sight at the side of slip roads as I am queuing to get off is sickening. Always the same stuff, well known brand takeaway wrapping/boxes, ale cans and a lot of clear plastic bottles with orange juice in them although I am not sure that's what it is. On points on the license I know of one person who got £60 fine for throwing a cigar butt out in stationary traffic, done by a copper walking by. I will add my rant now - the 'environmentally confused' who pick up dog droppings from over the fields where it would break down naturally, bag it, then carry it and then hang it in a bush as they leave the field. How do they think that works out.
  14. Gin

    Sloe Gin is good but you wouldn't want a pint. If you are into things home made it is not hard to make, sloe berries will be ripe at the end of this month in the hedgerows, recipes and methods online and it will be ready for Christmas.
  15. Gin

    Fever Tree tonic with elderflower adds a further dimension to Johnoco's gin, tonic, cucumber and ice mix.
