Silly question for the Monday games

How so? The only televised game was Dragons-Leeds, not sure how he could turn over from the others.

Fair point, I stand corrected

From the start I thought Leeds would win, but the Dragons have a history of Lazurus like comebacks, so it wasn't over till well into the second half

Each half is 40 minutes instead of 7. 

 

The players have to be in super shape to play for that long, run the ball with plenty of dummy runners, and not get a "scrum breather".  Sorry, watching Union & IRB scrums gets a bit boring after the second one.  The only excection is IRB Sevens, where they have a RL style scrum.  However, I can get 80 minutes worth of brilliant play versus 14.  More bang for the buck, as us yanks say...

The results a certainty after 10 minutes so you can switch over and watch something else.

I love the fact that we have fans that hate the game.

I was thinking of you as I watched NQ Cowboys go into a 22-0 lead in less than twenty minutes against the Panthers. Final score 30-0.

Of course such scorelines only occur in Super Duper League.

You forgot to mention the Parramatta game immediately before.

It was an easy one to forget. I watched the second half and not at any stage did either side look like scoring. Awful.

You've taken that nicely to extremities.

I was actually thinking about this afternoon. As ever, the best RL games are those in which there's a good match up between the teams and a good match up between attack and defence (i.e. both teams are capable of scoring but they have to work damned hard to do so). The match this morning was a stalemate where defences were well on top.

Of course, if you'd come back to gloat about the Cas-Hudds match I'd have had no argument. Not good.

Why do people insist on turning everything into some sort of willy waggling contest as to which competition is better? Whether it's SL, NRL, Championship or North West Counties, it's all Rugby League and I'll happilly watch all of it. OK, each competition has its pros and cons, but seriously, the way some RL fans carry on you'd think they were all completely different sports. Even people on TV do it, referring to SL as 'our game' with the inference that anything else isn't. It's all 'our game' regardless of the location or level. The parochialism in RL at times is incredible.
