Adam Fogarty's finest moment was surely when he decked Jack Duckworth. I hope you didn't do a whole interview with him and spell his name wrong John. ;)

Edited by deluded pom?

We spell it the way he does. He's not a bloke you'd want to argue with. As Jack Duckworth knows! :D

It's a cracking interview. He does nice chips too, so I'm told.

My apologies to you and Adam. I typed in his name with an A and his fizzog was on the links. ;)

I always thought RLW came out the last Friday of every month? I looked a right numpty in WH Smith's the other day thinking it was out on the Friday and was disappointed last issue sat there on the shelf.

I saw Adam Fogerty at Hull Fair once.

Did that get me in the name-dropping list?

No, he didn't reckon the pushbike Wall of Death was for real.

Big tart

I heard he took a look at the near vertical sides and asked your good lady.."Can he really keep it up for as long as that?" to which she sighed and replied "No".

(Serves you right for picking on me last weekend. :P )

Always look forward to getting mine. They should include a pull out and keep page locker in case any anti Warrington articles slip in. :D

The Wall Of Death was a swiz. I never saw anybody get killed.

I'll admit I haven't even read the current one, must do soon.

Sharn't even bother asking about the boil RLW fails to lance in The Red Hall Diaries because no-one listens, maybe if I ignore it it will go away.

Maybe a poll is in order? It might turn out that someone, somewhere likes RHD. :O

Here's a strange one. Last month Liverpool to Norwich, five and half hour train journey. Central liverpool before the journey, looking for Rugby League world to fill a big part of it, not a sausage in any of the newsagents nor at the station. And her I am at a station with trains to Widnes, Saint Helens and the rest.

Coming back, in the middle of the sticks, with train services to the likes of Diss, Great Yarmouth and Brandon, I go to W H Smiths Norwich station, and behold, Rugby League World.

Five and a Half hours to get Rugby League World, worth every minute last month too. Hopefully this months will be as good. Keep up the good work.

Can I ask who designed the 'advert' for RLW on the back page of this week's League Express? It looks an absolute mess - shame, because the mag has improved no end since John took over as editor.

I agree. If I didn't know the mag was excellent already I wouldn't exactly be going out of my way to pick it up this month. Almost gave me a headache! ;)

I dunno if that many are bothered.

Plus John will get all his mates and RLW colleagues to sign up in order to skew the vote... ;) and threaten those with banishment who dare not vote in his favour.

I dug LE out to have a look for myself. Christ on a bike. :dry:

No but he did visit his caravan.

My mum used to live in Gipsyville.

That means I probably qualify as Romany under RL International Federation rules

Today's the day!

New mag should be on sale in shops up and down the land.

If you can't find one in a shop, don't panic! :D

You can always order a copy here and we'll post it to you, because we're good like that.

There is no escape. Resistance is useless. Your life will be richer for having a copy of RLW in it and your pocket will only be

Not so in that my beloved Bulls do not have one player in the SL rankings nor an article

Do we deserve one though? Don't think anyone did last month either.

Today should be a memorable day, in that after many years I have received the RLW on the first day of issue having become a subscriber. Not so in that my beloved Bulls do not have one player in the SL rankings nor an article, I saw a photo of a lady who may become the face of RL because she had a small red amber and black on her face. Looking at the games derby's saw how my club had slid down. The MM derdy when the refs had got it so wrong, and I still have nightmares about it, and a brief piece by Wayne Godwin, in that he had played in all the games major derbys.

The only good news I have seen is in Bradfords local paper about Bullsbuilder and though I am in Wales I can help by subscribing too.

The editor of RLW is a Bradfordian. He feels your pain.

(He's also started referring to himself in the third person. First sign of madness, that).

Wibble. :wacko:

PS: Thanks for subscribing!
