  2. So London are the only club expected to travel to Toulouse to play? Is the reason for that literally because they are the only fully pro team? Sorry but thats preposterous, why should that make things different? As ever the people in charge of our game are making stupid decisions, either all teams travel or none, you ant just change a rule for one individual team.

  3. Very well played York. Your boys never stopped trying, competing and grafting. Considering Wigans standing in the game York definitely were not dominated in any way for considerable periods in the game. I thought you guys were great and all knight's fans should be very proud. Great advert for the championship.

  5. Pah, why go to amateurs like that when I have the TRL crew filled with northern folk. Did you know copper wire was invented by two northerners fighting over a penny?

  6. Paul Sculthorpe for me, he had pretty much everything in his game with no weakness. He was a great leader and captain and gave everything for his team Oh look, Manfredd Mann ruining another potentially good thread with a moronic NRLcentric post that has nothing to do with the question, bet no one expected that...

  7. This Knights team have a lot to be proud of tonight. Some of our forwards put in some very long stints (Cuthbo will be feeling it!) - just hope the injury list hasn't lengthened ! Pleased to see Fordy pick out FB Myles Harrison in his post-match interview - to make your debut as a 17 year old against Wigan, play 80 minutes, catch all the high stuff, make all your touch kicks - very creditable.

  10. Yes, its strange how that sometimes happens, our patched up side looked more like a team than last week. I think tonight proved what a strong squad we have.

  11. You did well keeping them at bay for as long as you did. Great first half display. Remember, your guys have got work on Monday morning. The main difference between semi pro and full-time is the fitness.

  14. I enjoyed the game, even though it was obvious Wigan would win from fairly early on. I also enjoyed the coverage. In particular, the use of action replays was restrained and, usually, timely. George Riley was a good (i.e. unobtrusive) commentator. Tony Rea is head and shoulders above anybody at Sky, possibly Jon Wells excepted. Specifically, Rea points out things that I haven't seen, because his reading of a game is far superior to mine and he has the articulacy to describe succinctly what he is seeing and thinking.

  15. Watched this from Toronto. Knights did well, bit better finish at the line and they'd have had a couple of trys bodes well for the year if that aspect can be sorted. Lovely stadium, I'm very envious but hey NARL is coming to Lamport so cannot complain! Mebbe we'll tempt Deano and gang over when we play New York in 2022!!!

  18. No problem someone pointing this out or indeed anything else. The new players and the fixtures are now the site under the section “ Team” which i think was the issue. John Miller along with Dan Winner & Joe Miller do a great job on social media at no cost whatsoever. OuRLeague members, Facebook and Twitter are superb when measured against other Clubs. Instagram & traffic to our website can no doubt be better and we are aiming to try to improve all the time but it is not easy and at moment it is even more difficult for everybody. With all our Covid regulations, twice weekly testing etc it’s hard just to get a player photo as we seek to ensure there is no spread of the disease should a player or official get it. So it’s not “ a joke” the update wasn’t done and it’s not as simple as saying we’ve had a year to do it which was my only point. If you see anything which needs looking at just let us know and we’ll do what we can with the time resources we have. Anyway, just waiting for crowds back now and getting back to something like normal as I’m sure is everyone.

  20. Exactly this. It’s really not that complex - there is zero equitable reason why only one British-based team should have to travel. Should be the same for all, that’s the very principle on which sport is based. I’ve every sympathy for Toulouse in this situation, as the only cross-border team (much like the Warriors in the NRL) they have hard choices to make. Nothing in that necessitates the other sides being treated differently to each other. It’s a disgrace. Anyone arguing the “oh but London didn’t object in the correct manner at the correct time” process straw man is just trying to side-step the core issue because they know they’re on quicksand with it

  21. I see this differently from a lot of you, why should London have to travel if nobody else has to? There shouldn’t be one rule for one and one for everyone else.

  22. I think that many of us on here would feel quite the opposite of thinking less of you, @Mumby Magic. At the toughest times, we need the clearest minds and you mustn't let those bad thoughts over-ride any others. I am no expert and my words will probably seem shallow and distant, but I am thinking of you, MM.

  25. The RFL needs to re-think it's decision for three reasons: Firstly, it does discrimate against full-time clubs in the championship, if there is a requirement for then to go to France and not part-time clubs. You can make the same argument about the private jet.for a part-time club as well and although a quarantine period affects part-time players with employment elsewhere individually, a full time club is as much affected by not bering able to train during quarantine as a part-time one is. Secondly, the decision was made in March, it's now April and while the UK is headng towards herd-immunity . France is way behind and in lockdown. The situation is fluid and the RFL needs to take this into account. Third point, If Toulouse are not able to play any other championship clubs at home bearing in mind this situation could persist for some time it brings the integrity of the championship into doubt. I am fully aware that this London side would probably have been on the end of thrashing but that's not the three points I am making.

  27. Don't know why people are talking about replacing clubs. SL needs to go to 14 teams and that means having a few more who could step up and compete near the top (which means generate enough revenue to spend the cap). Right now, that would be Newcastle , Toulouse and York. Not a single team in the Manchester region could say the same and that is the problem.

  31. Toulouse are paying for it. The game is as safe as any other game to play. London are full time professionals so the bubble rules will make no difference to them. Frankly, it’s embarrassing that the club have chosen to run and hide rather than make it about bonding in adversity.

  33. He's not even the only RL player to have a road named after him in Hull. Roger Millward Way crosses the River Hull at Myton Bridge and there is a Jack Harrison Avenue in Cottingham on the outskirts of the city.

  34. While, I live in Arizona (just South of Utah) we have a high population of Pacific Islanders that moved here because of The Church (I'm also a Mormon ) Many of them do know the difference, there are also a lot that don't. Either way, they support the Tongan National team in big numbers. I was surprised a few years ago when a group of Tongans were playing basketball at my Church building and they asked were I was from. I told them England and they asked me about Rugby. One of the group enthusiastically told me that his favorite Rugby player was Fui Fui Moi Moi.

  35. I'm glad that the York v Wigan game tonight will be shown on social media to allow me to watch it free. It is so cliche to complain about social media being all about people sharing what they are having for dinner. Sushi, by the way.

  36. The club has no sympathy from me - particularly as it appears,like many others,to treat genuine rugby league followers with total disdain. I'm guessing the head coach and players were well prepped for the game https://www.totalrl.com/ward-happy-for-broncos-to-play-in-france/ Many clubs have played 'home ' games away, and managed without everything being on a level playing field. There is nothing about the entire sport of rugby league,being on a level playing field. The two French clubs,in this ' professional ' sport,seem to have had the filthiest end of the stick.

  38. Right - disclaimer; I only base my thoughts on having watched a few episodes of 'Can't Pay, We'll Take It Away' tv programme, but.... With a County Court Judgement/Writ, a bailiff is instructed to take payment of the outstanding debt, or seize goods to cover the value, at the address on the claim. I have seen large companies (including Borough Councils - a parking fine for the Mayoral Car! ) being forced to pay up on the spot. There appears to be little to stop the execution of a writ occuring if there is a court document to back up the claim, which it appears there is in this case. FWIW, I think your £70 would be well spent.

  42. Brilliant, and exactly what the great man deserves. What's also nice to see is that a couple of papers have picked up on the story: https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/rugby/rugby-league/clive-sullivan-google-doodle-rugby-b1828909.html https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/14591983/who-is-clive-sullivan-google-doodle-great-britain/

  46. Don't need them. Ok the quality may not be the best but as long as the teams are fairly evenly matched what may appear to be amateur to RFL/SL/NRL fans should be entertaining enough to all but the most critical NA fan. Years 2021/22/23 should be spent on building a fan base/organizational structure and saleable product to sponsors and media. as long as the game day experiencing is good we'll be off to the races.
