    where was prince philip going?

    A pal of mine was learning to drive 30 years ago. On the day of his test the examiner gets into his car and says " Can you please read me the number plate on that car parked over there ?" My pal said " No, sorry but I can't ". The examiner said " Well in that case I'm sorry Mr Jones but you've failed and the test is over !" Surprising my pal wasn't aware that his eyesight wasn't up to scratch. As far as I know he never bothered with learning to drive afterwards.

    Law Cup

    Normally I used to go in the upper level of that double decker stand behind the posts. I worked on the theory that hot air rises !

    That's what I'm thinking. Watersheddings was bad enough and that was under cover.

    What's the weather forecast for Sunday ? I nearly froze to death at Mayfield last Saturday and I was under cover of sorts.

    What does she look like ? Has she not got any mirrors in No 10 ? If she's had them all taken down I wouldn't blame her !

    Those nice tories

    I used to work at a place called " Whipp & Bourne ", electrical engineers to the CEGB, Royal Navy, all the old Commonwealth Navies, even the US Navy at one time, They did all the switchgear for the " Titanic " back in the day. Nuclear subs etc. They were known in the industry as the " Rolls Royce " of switchgear. They provided the those long curved panels of electrical control gear you see in shots of power stations. Ditto for a lot of the North Sea oil and gas platforms. There are houses on the site now so my answer to your question is probably not.

    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    There's a lot of it about I'm afraid. My late father in law was a Brexiteer in spite of living in Spain for 30 years ! He liked to refer to black or brown people as " Darkies " , or " Moros "( Moors ) if he was talking to his Spanish friends. The older people in Andalucia are still scared of " Moros " because of the way Franco's African troops were given a free hand to terrorise them during and after the Spanish Civil War.

    The " Media " blame Corbyn if it rains. What else is new. You need to consider who owns the " Media " and what axe the have to grind. Demanding that " No Deal " is taken off the table is fine by me. How about you ?

    That's the big issue for me. Starting out every season with nearly all of the first choice 13 new to the club and each other is not the greatest way to have a successful team. We are where we are though. I would imagine Foster will make a difference in the forwards.
  15. We had a centre we signed from Dewsbury I think called John Maloney. He was ok at centre nothing special, then we moved him to full back in an injury crisis. He was devastating there, as you say he could run into the gaps and he was brilliant at it. For a couple of months he was terrific at full back for us then Phil Hogan who was just starting out at Barrow in the centres caught him with a tremendous tackle just as he was receiving a pass. It was one hell of a tackle but a fair one, it must have loosened every joint in Maloney's body. After that he wasn't quite the same player again. Yep, he was Francis Maloney's dad. Another full back I'd a lot of time for was Geoff Pimblett.
