Does the Guardian normally have championship reports?....or was it just a one off ?....

Unfortunately not. The days of The Guardian or any broadsheet having a regular RL correspondent and content, let alone Championship RL reports, are long gone. But a quick trawl of online Guardian shows some good stuff written on the wider game, particularly by Gavin Willacy (of 'No helmets required' blog/facebook site). The writter of the derby article in the link is the Guardian's chief football correspondent and an Irishman - so , not sure where the RL/Dewsbury interest comes from, but some good writing all the same.

You can tell I'm not bitter about Sunday can't you..

I like the Guardian. Not as insightful or truthful as the Express but far better politics..

That said I don't live in Dewsbury any more so maybe I don't count?

Apparently he was invited to the match by the club in an attempt to garner more exposure. It has worked to a degree.

(Of course, as a regular Guardian reader of many years I had already read it. 🤗 )

Should we christen the Derby El Shoddyco? Based on recent performances shoddy is an apt description....

A good idea. That would make the waverers think "I mungo to that".
