    Bradford born, solid Bradford Northern fan since the early 70’s. Relocated to Toronto a few years ago, doing my bit to help grow Rugby League over here. From bleeding Red, Amber & Black I now have plenty of Red & White in there too.

    Canada Wolverines and the Toronto Wolfpack, a great sport for a great country!

    Aerospace and aviation nut. History nerd.

  1. I don’t know, the areas connection to Sir Henry Percy (Hotspur) and going with something like the North London Knights could maybe help promotion efforts in the community; linking with an already deeply ingrained iidentity.

    My lad has gotten away with calling his mates at school doylums for a while now. Numpties, daft ap'orths, I've even caught him throwing out a gloit or two. Makes you proud it does, dragging Canadian kids up reet since 2005.

    I guess it would be a heck of a commute to expects the Kershaw's seafood basket bloke to make trips over!

    I remember us getting it one year, certainly came in handy and helped that year. Sorry to see it go, especially for the reason, that's just terrible.

    Anything of Eric Perez' whereabouts?

    Millom Vs Red Star live on the Beeb

    A bunch of us were watching that at a mates place. Let's just say that the Canadians were a little surprised at the conditions at the start but loved the, I guess rawness would be the best word, of the match. Didn't take them long to understand the passion for the game.

    I watched them last year so hopefully there won’t be any geoblocking this year. Always alternative routes though, he said in a non-condoning tone of typing 😉

    Really looking forward to this, I hope it draws good viewing numbers.
  9. It doesn’t matter where it’s held though does it? It’s not an event any more, just a whirlpool of details we’re drowning in. There’s a laundry list of reasons why RL has dropped to the edges of the public’s radar, not just the shambolic machinations of the RFL, and I think we’ve all to varying extents been buried in what it isn’t instead of what it is. Ironically, I thought it was a breath of fresh air last year when the early rounds of the Cup were streamed; it reignited some of the excitement and passion for the Competition as a whole, a competition where anyone has their shot at a win on the day, where proud lads who play not for money, but for each other and for the love of the shirt can have their time in the spotlight in a charge against the top sides. It’s not so much a competition as it is a journey, one I’ve not felt part of for quite a while if I’m honest, but a journey which carried me along last year and if I’d been in the UK I would have been at the final for sure. How fitting for a competition that normally, and sportingly, champions the underdog or the unlikely lads that we had the first non-English winners, what an ending to that journey the 2018 Final was. I thought at the time what an opportunity to reach across to French RL partners to help their supporters travel for the 2019 defence, or even more. I thought of how that was such a positive story for a change, of how completely different it was, a genuine feel good moment for the game; something on which to build, to grow. “No Mr. £500k Bond, I expect you to die.” How thoroughly and gonad-kickingly disappointing. That needs to be corrected and put as quickly behind as is possible to do because it’s not just a final, it’s a celebration of our game from the bottom to the top and whoever wears the crown at the end, wherever they win it, every one of us along the way has helped them to reach it. Make it the season long event it is, not just a final that people want to be a part of, because if the curious see hundreds and thousands walking that metaphorical or even physical path, cheering and singing along the way, they will certainly join you.

    An hour in and the petitioner himself still represents 50% of those signing. Going to be a popular one this! 😂

    Think of how long professionalism has been in Canada then reread your own words. Slowly.

    New York RL - The Full 80 Minutes

    It should be borne in mind that Jowett and Argyle had extended and positive talks at the RLIF conference in November. It remains to be seen what results that will bring for 2019 in Canada but bringing up the previous lack of communication isn't relevant any more.

    TWP and ISC

    He was once one of Toronto's biggest attractions. Now his brother is doing the same for Ontario. Gravitationally at any rate.

    Imagine Boris Johnson had gone to the best school in a really ###### area so thinks he's part of 'us' whilst being better at the same time.

    TWP cut from Premier

    Sky broadcasted games have traditionally been put on Sportsnet World along with the NRL games. Not sure if that’s going up in price next year though, was $20 a month on Bell last year.
