  1. At least you are consistent; post similar every year. I personally prefer the play-off system.

  2. All of the games affecting the relegation outcome need to kick off at the same time. Super League really need to show some balls on this.

  3. There are new fans in new areas watching the game. Are fans not part of the game? There are new media outlets covering rugby league. Is media coverage not beneficial to the game? There are now more opportunities for players to earn a living. Is paying players not the raison d'etre for the game's existince? Some of those fans, who have been watching in new areas, they or their kids may be inspired to play. At any level, amateur or making it to the NRL one day, these players wouldn't do that unless introduced to the game. The game has expanded in every way so far, except el

  4. Sad scenes at the hooter as Danny McGuire fires a gun at a random London fan in the crowd. Child tells the fan to get up and play the ball.

  13. Over the last two days I've done a training course to become a qualified Mental Health First Aider! I wasn't sure what the course was going to be like but it was genuinely really beneficial. The fact that my employer have put 50 people through this course (at ~£300 each) shows that progress is being made, however gradually. If anyone is any position of influence, lobby for these to be introduced in your workplace. One thing I did find interesting was that Employment Assistance Programs are apparently the fastest way to access counselling in the UK. It varies by employer but often you'll b

  17. Have to say, London have been a breath of fresh air this year. Really hope they stay up. Would like to see KR stay up too, they add plenty to the comp.

  19. Not caught much of it as I’ve been watching the Scotland-Russia football game, but it just makes me smile to see and hear those London fans enjoying themselves. They deserve to stay up for their dedication alone in making such a trip for a Friday night Sky game.

  20. First and foremost a top bloke. A great professional. Role model. Been an absolute pleasure watching you Alex. To say you'll be missed is a massive understatement. Best wishes for the future and rest assured there will always be a welcome in T' nineoyl. Thanks Alex.

  23. It's like your saying shut up and put up ernieone. Not really what the supporters want to hear. But it wasnt that long ago that we were competing with full time teams and beating them ( pre- diskin).

  24. You have to wonder what the young wingers in the club system think, when yet again money is thrown at an Overseas player coming for his retirement pay check. HW

  25. SKD was a world level centre 7/8 years ago , played centre for the Kiwis in two 4 nations wins , runner up for Golden Boot etc etc but at 32 with his recent exploits this is a bad contract to offer and not sure that Rovers should be spending likely marquee money on a 32 year old three quarter who is a known "party" man. Unfortunately Super league is now choc full of Thirtysomethings getting multi year deals and it is not going to change anytime soon.

  26. I wish people would come back in to the real world, Batley do not have a money tree and cannot afford the players supporters are dreaming of. Yes we will have to look in the bargain basement mainly because we cannot afford players above that, hopefully we will find a couple of players that will improve things. The ones I have heard we could be signing are decent players but probably will not get us in the top 5, take the full time squads out of the equation and we will be able to compete in the Championship perhaps to some supporters that is not good enough, as I said come in to the re

  28. It is quite possible to work/shop/socialise in Manchester while still retaining an affinity for your home town, it's locality and it's sporting sides. They aren't mutually exclusive. Contrast talk of becoming less localised and abandoning our smaller town clubs in favour of an all-encompassing (Greater) Manchester side versus the annual discussion about London Broncos struggling because they've failed to become more localised.

  30. That's not really how the national press works, the angle is the guy is surprisingly of Nigeria heritage. It creates a talking point, you can bet some newspaper in Nigeria has re-ran that story. Infotainment. In the same way Ryan Giggs West African heritage gets rolled out from time to time. Or Stuart Littler and his cote d'ivoire heritage he likes to display. (That's one for the irish out there). Or actor Nick Frost played for London Nigerian. Blogs and podcasts are the home of any real sports journalism. https://guardian.ng/sport/from-lagos-to-middle-east-

  32. Salford and Ian Watson have done fantastic things this season in difficult circumstances. If I meant they can be in the top five I would happily take a defeat tomorrow given the Rhinos are safe.

  33. For any real ale fans coming over to Halifax on Sunday here's your best places to visit. The Three Pigeons near the ground and in the centre (all within a 10 minute walk of each other) The Victorian Cafe Bar, The Grayston Unity, The Alexandra, The Lantern, Kobenhavn, The Square Chapel Cafe Bar. Enjoy??

  34. Next week is really gonna deliver something special in super league. There are so many outcomes its unbelievable. If kr, London and hudds win, Wakefield are down. If kr and London win and hudds lose, hudds are down. If kr win and London lose, London are down. If London win, kr lose and hudds win, kr are down If London win, kr lose and hudds lose by 13 more than kr, hudds are down There's probably more possibilities than that as well that I've missed. This is incredible!

  35. I think Butler was my MOM. He was the key to our forwards being able to compete and lay a platform for the rest of the team. It has been such a long time since I've seen a player in a London shirt that can do that. Great future ahead for him.

  36. Seeing that replay even longer, he continues to punch the man. Absolute joke that the video ref hasn't got involved there and told Child that he's punched him. What is he there for?

  37. Top lad Brevy. I could never understand why Dewsbury let him go all those years ago. Our loss and Batley's gain.
