“It’s like you’re running a marathon, at pace, while surviving about 20 or 40 small car crashes.” 

Russell Crowe describes rugby league to an American audience.

“For me, it’s the hardest sport in the world. It takes dedication, discipline and mental strength. You accept constant physical punishment. You push your body right to the limit. It’s something that I’ve always been inspired by. It’s too tough for me. Deep down, I would love to be a rugby league player.”

Tour de France winner, Sir Bradley Wiggins

“It’s the first time I’ve been cold for seven years. I was never cold playing Rugby League.” 

Jonathan Davies describes his return to Rugby Union.

IBM have named their bright new(ish) AI tool after him IBM Watson (not as some mistakenly think Sherlock Holmes's sidekick).

Sherlock is commemorated in the Home Office Large Major Enquiry System (2) software package used by every police force in the country.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest someone crowbarred some words into a name to make the acronym work.

The mountains are calling and I must go. - John Muir

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe.
- Albert Einstein

We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.
- Stephen Hawking

Maybe this world is another planet's hell.
- Aldous Huxley

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
- Douglas Adams
