Boring!!

Reckon NE is more interested in fishing for real Leeds fans than anyone else.

Everyone who has ever followed Leeds RL/Rhinos would love to see us just get to a CC final. He's a tool.

top one, great final.

4 years later (87) i played for the Warrington School boys v's Leeds, Leeds won 10 nil (#### bags :P )

best thing about the day Saints got beat by Fax :lol::lol:

CC for me is my pinnacle, but i say that having played there as a kid.

(ps, does that make you 38/39 by any chance ;) )

A mate of mine from school played in the same game. He was from Holt Park. Think it was under 12's??

I know the gibbons twins well, used to play at the same amateur club as me, although a few age groups below me, very,very good players.

Yeah we've established he joined the sport back in 1996.

I was '97, I dunno who John Holmes was. And I've only heard of 'greats' by name. Does that make me a poor supporter?

the difference is that you actually go to watch games live...............
