    Fans standing behind posts

    Probably add the Kells End at Whitehaven's Recreation Ground to that trio. I don't like being behind the posts. Much better along the sides.

    Very interesting. Thanks for the details. I'll add a few of my own!

    Yes, they did.

    Old grounds

    It was possible to access Wilderspool after the ground had closed but before the demolition men moved in (IIRC, I climbed through a window at the back of the main stand)...

    Cougar Park (when it was Lawkholme Lane)...

    Old grounds

    Loved going to Fartown as a schoolboy. Always felt like a proper ground, even when crowds dipped below a thousand.

    McLaren Field, Bramley, has changed quite a lot since I made this August 1986 visit!

    Tony Adams to become RFL President

    Tony Adams is a big name, known across the world. What harm can this do?

    Will Odsal ever get redeveloped?

    Hasn't this ship sailed? Shouldn't Bradford City have relocated to Odsal (permanently) after the 1985 fire, rather than opting to redevelop landlocked Valley Parade, a hopeless location for a modern sports stadium?

    I'd say this is right. What is there to lose?

    The Great Rugby League World Bake Off

    Actually, with that sheer drop on the far side of the pitch, it could be the Pit Field, Kells!

    The Great Rugby League World Bake Off

    Is that stadium modelled on the one Sheffield Eagles use?
