  1. Big day tomorrow, first game back at the moulin v limoux, starts with a catalans training session, then the official opening of the stand, u 19s game, first team game and fireworks and music to end it all. 650 people coming to the pré match meal and free entry for everyone. The history story board at the side of the field has been updated too, video0000001.mp4

  2. Absolutely not. We shouldn't cede our history pre-1895. The sport being played was exactly the same in September 1895 as it had been in July 1895 and the players and fans of the NU clubs were the same. Discarding that history, our history, because it fits an easy cut off narrative is just wrong. The reason the clubs broke away was because of their pre-breakaway strength - to understand that strength is to understand why Rugby League exists.

  4. My experience is that you are wrong there. People talk about Toronto a lot Even in the UK. And especially in europe Even in Manchester. I don't know what this 90% is but I showed you facts determining it was a highly sought after tourist location. It is ok to be wrong friskey.

  5. We where put in contact with the guys at Saints Foundation by a Saints fan who has a holiday home in Cornwall, after a visit and couple of phone calls we created a community development partnership. The foundation support all our schools and junior activity and send coaches down throughout the year when we host development days and schools competitions. They have also helped us to educate coaches to be able to deliver Rugby League sessions. Rugby League is now the main Rugby Competition on the Cornwall School Games at Primary level with around 250 schools taking part each year. At s

  6. Since we still have 3 weeks of the off season left, thought we might have another very much off season topic. The majority seem to enjoy slagging off referees, sometimes to an obsessive extent, so I thought we would flip it! What is the worst refereeing decision you can remember than has benefitted your team? I'll start with Saints...a disallowed Bradford try in the 2002 Grand Final that would have put the Bulls up 12-0 after around 10 minutes. It was ruled a knock on against a Bradford player despite clearly being stripped by Paul Newlove. How different things could have been if that try

  7. Two years ago for my 70th I wanted to show myself that I could still a swim a mile. I was about 10 when I managed that first mile. After a series of heath problems in 2019, I finally managed to get back into the pool for the first time since late August. I started back on Thursday and today I managed a third of a mile. Mind you it took me half an hour. Not far and not fast but I feel as though I have achieved something for myself.

  8. The inspectors got confused by the different coloured lines and inspected the Basketball area so it failed on the pitch being too small.

  11. There is a pitch that is slanted in the Championship. I don't know how Lamport could fail an inspection when you have a pitch built on a hill LOL. Maybe Argyle can donate a shipment of dirt from one of his mines and a grader to the RFL to get it sorted.

  12. The season is almost upon us . We have 1 fit Half back. We have lost 3 centres and signed none. Dale Morton is a winger not a centre. Tomlinson is a forward. We have no cover in our back division at all. In the boxing day game our starting pack looked more than capable the players recruited in the forwards will get better. What I am getting at is why has our recruitment in the backs been ordinary. I do not know the coaches plans but if we start the season with the current squad we are asking for trouble. This division is a strong one we desperately need to improve on our previous season. We h

  18. No, 1864, that's when the "club" were formed, the 'football' side of it started in 1866, with the move to the fartown ground enabling rugby to be played there from 1878, and the breakaway in 1895 is when the rugby league side of the club came into being. This is from the heritage group "In 1864 the Apollo Gymnasium was turned into the Gymnasium Theatre. The athletes of the gymnasium responded by forming a more organised athletics association. In an advertisement headed "Huddersfield Athletic Club" they invited "gentlemen desirous of becoming members" to a public meeting at 8 o'clock

  19. As aj1908 said, I can see a bit of blue sky already. The biggest fire, the Gospers Mountain fire, is still out of control but all it has left are small pockets. The air in Sydney should probably clear tonight because there is a weather warning for gale force S/SE winds from about 10pm. Those winds are forecast for the entire NSW coast so they should blow most of the fires back onto the burnt out areas.

  23. Newcastle Thunder’s innovative SPARC player development principles broke new ground in the run up to Christmas 2019, as the club’s U16s academy united with counterparts from three Super League clubs for the first ever Invitational Development Day. Kingston Park Stadium welcomed players and staff from the academy programmes of Huddersfield Giants, Hull KR and Wakefield Trinity for games and a series of workshops at an event that aimed to serve as a demonstration of how academies could work together and provide additional development opportunities for players and staff.

  25. A club is not a company, though a company may own the club. A club is an amalgam of many things, if any of the parts continue then so does the club. This discussion was had on here years ago and even historian Proff. Tony Collins agreed that Bradford is a continuous club as are many others that have had troubled pasts. The general consensus is that Hull FC are the oldest club.

  31. The knives have been out for the Wolfpack since the very beginning and the powers that be never wanted them in and have thrown up every obstacle possible sine the first game. That means the game needs us more than ever! A new decade and a new dawn fro RL...a bright one indeed. WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER! "Run With The Pack!"
