    NZ v Australia

    Joseph Manu is the Kiwi centre and has been a revelation for the Roosters while Latrell Mitchell has been missing. NRL commentators have been banging on about Mitchell being the new Greg Inglis and it's a fair call. Think we could be looking at the new Sonny Bill in Joseph Manu. I know it's a big call but he seems to get better with every game.
  2. Thanks very much for that. Tried there earlier but I must've been too early! That's the first non NCL Saturday afternoon sorted roll on March!
  3. Anyone on here know if this game is going to be replayed on Sky, and when? Thanks in advance of any help.
  4. Anyone know the date of this year's grand final, is it still at Widnes? Thanks in advance.

    Time for a rethink ?

    Ask the people who really matter ie the players. Some of the lads in open age rugby now have never been involved in a winter season in their lives, including youth rugby. I've asked lads what they think of going back to winter and their comments leave no doubt. I think a move back would result in grassroots rugby league losing more players than it would gain/regain. For me youth rugby is where the problem lies and that has nothing to do with the winter/ summer debate. If we can't attract more kids into the game the it's going to wither from the roots up and that's not just a problem for the amateur game.

    Cumbria Derby

    Egremont A 10 Brow A 34. Nice way to spend a Friday evening. Decent crowd and hard fought game. Brow dominated 1st half and Egremont came out stronger in the 2nd though the half time score (28-6) had left them too much to do. Can't wait for the main course at the Brow 14.30 today!

    Premier division play offs

    Spoke to you that day at the Brow Rooster. Hope you didn't have your phone on "pay as you go". Seemed like you were on the phone back to Eccles for the full 80 minutes. If I recall correctly that result helped you avoid relegation. Think Saturdays game will be tighter than last time we were there, should be a good game and lively atmosphere.

    This incident doesn't need to be aired in public. I was at the game and this was a sickening cowardly act. I would have thought that the last thing anyone wants, least of all the Mayfield player involved, is for this to go public. Absolutely nothing to be proud of.

    Think you'll find Big Doug that Spidey is talking about a different player.

    Why not let the NCL sort it out rather than " trial by Forum". They'll have the footage shortly, if not already, they'll be able to look at events leading up to what happened to Matty and come to an informed conclusion.
  11. I think it goes without saying that teams who have joined this Conference have done so because they wish to test themselves at national level. I would think if this restructuring took place those clubs who were put back into the regional leagues against their own will would be, to put it mildly, not very happy. Imagine if Kells for instance after working their way through the divisions had been told during the pre season that instead of challenging for promotion into the Premier division the following season that they would instead be going back to the CARLA league whether they liked it or not. Don't think they, or anyone else for that matter, would be too happy.

    No new topics

    I just got fed up of people coming on and trying to convert every single thread into a summer/winter debate!!!!

    Dual Reg

    First time I've read this thread and I'm surprised it's taken so long for someone to make this point. I've read Trevor Hunt's reaction on the NCL website and that's even more surprising. Surely in his position he should be setting an example and supporting the democratic process. The votes have been cast and counted and surely that should be that? For those on the wrong side of this vote remember, the next time the democratic process is flouted it may be to your club's detriment.
  14. Get them in now Gilly, join next season and Connor Fitz's age group will be 18yr old. If they move straight thro the divisions they'll be 21 when they reach the Prem. Don't leave it too late, join the Cumbrian party, 'cos of course Millom and Askam'll be there by then!

    Miners v Thornhill

    I'd like to see Seaton Rangers try the NCL. They've got a decent side now with a few good juniors on their way through the system. Even taking in to account those juniors involved with SL scholarships/academies Seaton should only get stronger over the next 3-4 years. However I havn't heard anything re ambitions towards NCL.
