  1. Past hour
  2. In that case do you think we should have tobacco advertising back in sport? Where do you get the 1% figure from? The Gambling Commission estimates that about 430,000 people are experiencing problems with gambling. The NHS believes there is increasing evidence of a link between problem gambling and stress, depression and other mental health issues. Marc Etches, head of the GambleAware charity, which contributed to the Gambling Commission's National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms, said: "Gambling is a serious public health issue in Britain with two million adults suffering some level of gambling-related harm, and for a few, gambling addiction ends in suicide.
  3. He’s not as good as Munster but I take your point. He’s turned his season around and is up there at the minute, should be a great signing for Catalan if he comes to play. Doubt he’ll be in the Australian squad though, he wasn’t even in Meningas origin merit squad. Expect Keary and Munster to be Halves.
  4. That may be the case and I’m all for keeping it as was agreed at the start, I’m just passing opinion on the system itself. It’s also pretty poor they have had to clarify it so late. i’m sure most fans wouldn’t complain if they were top, doesn’t make it any better but it is what it is. Incidentally, if 3rd beats 2nd but then lost to Toronto and have to play 2nd again, do they then get home advantage in the 2nd game?
  5. This is the real one not the snooker player but will need to remove his gloves when going on the pitch
  6. Looks good on the videos and have the rest of the season to judge for a new contract if both parties are interested.On Dagger,even though played out of position I didn’t rate him in his short time at the Club .I choked on my beer when he dropped the ball in the final minute whilst pressing the Toronto line to win the game.
  7. He will likely be in the Australian halves at the end of the year. When has that happened last, that the current Australia half has gone to play in the Super League?
  8. I think this is one of the biggest SL signings in recent memory. He's won the past two State of Origins with halves partners who were passengers both times. It would be pretty hard to argue against it if someone said he's the best half in Australia.
  9. Today
  10. We,England,have our own design & brand Jim...we've spent a decade building it up...too ###### it all away so the old farts can go on tour...
  11. What makes you think he plays for Newcastle? He plays for Penrith and has been playing very well, helping the team to win 7 in a row and make the NRL top 8 at this point.
  12. It is now confirmed on www.NRL.com, the website of the NRL. https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/07/24/maloney-to-leave-panthers-at-end-of-2019/?utm_source=NRLFBContent&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=NetworkContent&sf216313469=1&fbclid=IwAR0HJb30cjpfGpmJMmutckx3zW8UNUkighdCZwSNbDeQ2Fmhqe-0TLsiJmw
  13. Honestly why can't England just take the design and use it as their own? Would save a whole lot of mess and leave Wales, Scotland and Ireland free to do their own thing (even though realistically they already have nothing to do with GB).
  14. I think any player, or human being for that matter, who tries to turn a corner is worthy of applause. If he succeeds, he'll still have detractors, if he fails, he'll have more, but he at least is giving at a go. If you've never suffered from issues with addiction or insecurity, you'll never appreciate how hard a hole it is to climb out of. Then again, Golf is surely a modern sort of self flagellation. Played it for 40+ years and hate it with a vengeance, but still keep going back .
  15. Although, on the face of it the lib-dems would seem the natural choice and home for liberal thought and inclinations, the evidence that that would ever be the case in power is scant or damning. to say the least.
  16. Yesterday
  17. 40 years of London, existance maybe, fully supported and integrated by the RFL and other clubs with plans in place to build from the bottom up, nope. starting a club even in the 80s was going to be a tough ask, there simply wasn't the underlying support from RFL and grass roots. Now it's even harder, opportunity for London came and went after their pinnacle getting to Wembley. One thing is for sure, looking backwards to pit villages and the like is NOT the future of RL!
  18. He could cycle it in about 3.5 hours, he must be comparing that with flight times to Tossa de Mar. Oh and he's not a 'lad' he's a grown adult, he should be able to sort himself out without faux outrage from people like you!
  19. When this tour loses a shed load of money don't count on future GB tours happening... And for the record...I actually like that shirt,I'll get it next summer when it goes down to £15 as per the RFL
  20. Jackie Edwards ( Sean's dad as well as a tremendous player in his own right) used to set them. He was devilishly good at his job.
  21. If 16 teams qualified from a 4 team group, group stage only 2 weeks would be added to the length of the season. if 1 did, i.e we went straight to the quarters, the season would be 1 week longer.
  22. St.Helens and Warrington fans would be arriving via St,Pancras so not affected right? It'd be interesting to see how many fans actually arrive by train in the last 10 years or so, first and only time on a train to Wembley for me was 1985, just before my 16th birthday and I went on my though several hundred FC fans, many of them piddled as newts! I reckon it's a very small % these days given most people have cars and the usual coach travel straight to the ground or surroundings. it's 40mins drive to free parking in a nice well to do residential area just yards outside the parking restriction zone on event days and a 25min walk to the ground. Usually back home to get us teas. If it is saints and tellins I'm not sure I'll go tbh.
  23. The competitive season would last from December to October. Ain’t happening.
  24. In reality, a 10-month competitive season isn’t going to happen for the benefit of a rival competition.
  25. I didn’t. I didn’t vote Labour until both Blair and Brown were out of power. I voted Lib Dem from 2003 to 2010 in all elections. I strongly opposed the Iraq war to the point of returning my Labour membership card. Edit: and why did it need a hard-right Tory government that dictated terms to the Lib Dems? A supply and confidence deal would have forced centrist policies and the avoidance of the worst of austerity that was imposed on us.
