  1. Old RL film segments

    Thanks for that. I've watched the hull semi-final in Leeds and look forward to the rest.
  2. people on tv that you are not too fond of

    Naga Munchetty The lanky one who sits with her. Jeremy Vine (ruined Eggheads for me) The rugby league commentary of Johnathon Davies Zoe Ball Andrew Marr and a lot of the previously mentioned.
  3. Liam Watts may want to use this as defence at his lynching, perhaps toning down the amusing sarcasm a tad though.
  4. TRL Helpdesk: Used cars

    I am not aware of any reason for the loss of recorded miles other than a new display And then it would start at zero. A new engine is certainly not a reason. My wife was in a similar position to you and after viewing multiple heaps of rattling, stinking forecourt top priced cars we bought her lease car from the lease company.
  5. 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.
  6. RIP Vince Farrar

    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.
  7. Molehill to be investigated by the RFL.

    There are none so blind as those who will not see
  8. Beer and Pubs

    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.
  9. bad script

    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?
  10. bad script

    Yes, I have the same, making it hard work and patience.
  11. Ref's own words were 'knock on'. Ignore the commentary clowns
  12. your top 3 comedians/comic actors

    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
  13. Mike Stephenson MBE

    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.
  14. A Black Day for Rugby League

    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.
  15. Stevo Bingo on SkyBet!

    A 'absolutely furious' second stanza' 'claret' treble for me.
