  1. Toulouse whose going

    Bet it was...useful to know about the app...much cheaper than train/bus.Great weekend ..managed 3 RL games and even the TFC v Dijon game on Saturday night.Sunday's games at Strade Struxiano ...the best match of the weekend saw TO u-19's beat St Esteve 33-22 whilst the Catalan reserves were too strong for TO reserves...not surprising with Albert,Da Costa,Duport,Maria,Margalet etc trying to impress the watching Steve McNamara...62-8.
  2. Toulouse whose going

    Hope you guys get home safe...train strike looks to start 20.00 saturday until 08.00 tuesday..staying in toulouse for Broncos double header at Struxiano on sunday(um)
  3. Toulouse whose going

    Cloudy on Saturday..Rain on sunday.Prends ton parapluie...as they say.Was hoping to take in St.Gauden v Albi on Sunday but the Sncf strike has scuppered that.Toulouse Broncos are playing St Esteve so that will do instead.There's also Toulouse Fc at home on Saturday (20.00 ko)for any footie fans.
  4. Gene Ormsby

    6ft2...16stone...winger/centre..previous super duper league experience at Warrington and Huddersfield.Could be a crowd favourite if he settles and benefits from Cresta's coaching skills
  5. Rochdale

    Seemed to be a spear tackle...didn't look good .The sending off changed the game and energised Hornets in the second half...a couple of soft tries and gaps opened up too easily...to be expected with a man down.Some adversity coming the Raiders way after a good start to the season with Dallimores controversial ban ..probably another for Stack and further injury problems.
  6. Salford v Catalans in New York

    Any updates on this story....given that Good Friday fixture is only 3 weeks away and England v NZ in Denver is scheduled for the same weekend in June as the proposed New York fixture it would seem unlikely.Shame ...as a day out in The Big Apple after taking in the Toronto v Barrow game would have made quite a weekend...!!
  7. Pitch inspection.

    who has the decision to make...if it's the match ref do we have to wait for Gareth to negotiate the coast road....floods n black ice permitting..?
  8. Toronto

    Sunday's merry whistleblower....it's Gareth...
  9. Geoff Fletcher RIP

    From a different era of Rugby League...a true legend...πŸ‰πŸ–πŸ˜ͺ
  10. Toronto and Toulouse packages 2018

    ...would rather turn up in Tronno on June 23rd..or do these guys know something we don't....??...even allowing for the time difference..πŸΊπŸš£πŸ‰πŸŠπŸ»...??
  11. Grounds where you have seen Barrow RL play

    2018 fixtures due on Wednesday with the chance to visit 2 new grounds to add to the already impressive list ..London Broncos at the Trailfinders and Sheffield Eagles at their new venue at the Olympic Legacy Park..hopefully ready for the new season.The Summer Bash fixture at Blackpool looks to be another clash with the Eagles...start saving up now...book early as Fred would have said.
  12. Fixtures

    Last year League 1 fixtures appeared 24 th October...presumably Championship released sooner...sounds about right...start saving up...Bearman has a head start with his £2 coin jar..🐻£2🍺
  13. Where's the Kman?

    Bearman on the Barrow pages...''Congrats to Toronto thread'' explains that Kayakman was taking a break from rugby for family reasons
  14. Promotion?

    ....3 to play and The Dons defeat at Workington could prove costly with trips to York and Toronto coming up.Keighley could still sneak the 5 th spot . Probable play off line up....Barrow v Keighley/ Haven v York........All Cumbrian Final anyone...??
  15. Grounds where you have seen Barrow RL play

    Although we started out to include only those grounds where we had seen Barrow RL play it really is fascinating to see all those prewar venues...Tottington and Walkden etc...who knew..?? The overall total is then 156 ...give or take the odd one.So it's back to the original aim to see how many of those grounds you have seen Barrow RL play..??Use of a Tardis is strictly prohibited..sadly no prizes ...just bit of fun!! Wouldn't this be an idea for a companion publication to "Keeping the Dream Alive"...a separate entry for each ground with team details,match report etc... Just saying....
