    Kallum Watkins out for rest of season.

    There seemed to be at least one knee injury in every match. Also a few players heads bounced when they hit the ground. Could there be a problem with the surface at SJP?

    Cliff Watson RIP

    I spoke to a few ex-pros who played against him and he really was the most feared man in RL. Not particularly big for a prop in the days of contested scrums, but he was fast, strong and hard as nails. He never started trouble but often finished it. RIP

    Darcy Lussick

    In the early 70s I gave lifts to Leeds to several US and a few Canadian travelers. This was because of the great popularity of the album " The Who - Live at Leeds". Some of them were under the impression that the Who actually lived there.
  4. Anyone else remember "Bernard the Boot", who featured in a comic in the 1950's (I think it was the Hotspur or the Lion or the Wizard)? He was an Alf Tupper-like guy who played for Dredgford Northern, and worked in the pit. His speciality was sticking the ball under his chin while handing off several opponents.

    After the visa episode, nobody can say that they play without conviction.

    murdoch sells Sky share to Disney

    Rugby League should have nothing to do with Disney. They're a Mickey Mouse organisation.

    Ken Gowers

    Also an accomplished league cricketer. His grandson must have inherited something from him, he's John Simpson, the Middlesex wicketkeeper.

    You know you're an RL tragic when...

    Bought a bottle of wine today from Morrisons just because it's called Featherstone. Sad. In the early 80s the Co-op in France had a range of wines called Rochdale.

    You sell your Bentley and buy a Dacia.
