    rugby( both codes, dont judge me!! lol)
  1. his boy played junior RL for quite some time over at Brentwood Elvers I believe. Seemed to watch most games
  2. view of my local club, from 200ft up. not mastered it yet so composition/ exposure etc could be better but these DJI drones are bloody good fun
  3. http://www.catalansdragons.com/en/articles-9/178-6622-catalans-dragons-statement/ £500 thousand,,, wow
  4. now, I never played at anywhere near a high standard, but I was always told to gauge the speed of the PTB and how ready the markers are. If both markers set and primed, there's no way I was going to take the ball on before passing. Even if I ran a wide curve I wouldn't add much value. If my teammate is quick on their feet and the markers still on their back feet, well that would be the time to have a roby-esque snipe ( albeit in slo-mo). More accomplished hookers will no doubt come along to give more useful advice & to rubbish mine Im sure :-)
  5. wouldn't mind trekking down to either the FR v ENG or FR v NZ game... where what site is the best one to keep my eyes on as www.ffr13.fr/ seems sparse on info
  6. Thanks! 4th trip to the area, 3rd game at the GilbertBrutus. Seen Catalan take apart Saints, roll over against Wigan... who knows what Saturday will bring!
  7. an out of form leeds, Catalan at home after a win.. both teams as erratic as anything. One thing for sure I wont be putting a bet on this game :-) I WILL however be at the game, off to Perpignan Friday until Tuesday and cannot wait!
  8. My 2p... for what it’s worth. Can 100% see why areas were roped off. Loads sitting down for the dinner ( at x amount per head) typically find that by the time the meal is over & its time to watch the game the touchline is already full so get to see less of the game. Yes, I think they got the initial size of this area wrong, but it did appear to have been reduced by halftime & seemed a better balance. Victim of its own success & only way to remedy would be to have all 4 sides open. This would need the pitch shifting 10-15m nearer the middle, which is out side of their control & unlikely to happen. game itself I found interesting too, last year Wigan struggled for parity but, when they did, they were dangerous. A year older for most of them & a few older heads saw a complete control of the tackle area & the bonuses that brings to a team. To be fair to them, the senior Skolars kept leading from the front & the newer players to this level have had a baptism of fire which will see them go two ways. impressed with the young Skolars fullback who got severely put under pressure, his positioning though was 9/10 spot on. His only problem was,when he cleaned up any ball, he had 4 Pie Eaters on him like a rash! caveman beer went down well. Bar Wetherspoons the cheapest pint to be had in a square mile I bet & pre match feed in the artillery arms was also spot on, seemed to be more match goers in there than last year. will 100% be buying 2019 Tickets, only thing we both remarked on is the weather was kind again. I do wonder how softies would cope if saturdays rain fell on the Friday! :-)
  9. looking forward to it, almost a tradition for myself to take a half day & meet my dad at Liverpool st for a game of RL and a cheeky Doombar or 2! RL tradition, in the city, who would think such a thing :-)
  10. Earl Grey or Mr Grey? ( for all you 50 shade fans out there )
  11. I'm available. Looked after an amateur side, miles from the northern heartlands whose players were all out on a Friday night before a game. I ask you, who's better qualified than that? :-)
  12. I think a Wigan win but I do think the whole Rhinos team would have been happy with 3 out of 4 wins after that evening at Castleford...
  13. My 1st game at the HAC in quite some time ( went to the 1st one and haven't been since due to commitments ) I must say really enjoyed it and liking what its become! Doom bar went down a treat and am sure the "tent" can be expanded on year on year. Seemed to be a respectable enough crowd too. Much bigger and you have to look at increasing the amount of touchline available or a stand almost . Was also good to see the primary schools engagement going on. As far as the game was concerned I thought the younger Wigan pack performed heroically, considering how many Lbs they gave away per man. Ones to watch in the future, their 7 & 19 in the halves plus the young lad with 5 on his back ( although played more RH Centre from memory) who did a lot of things right during the 2nd half. Took my dad along who enjoyed it too. Dependant on the trains nearer the time , we very much considering the Skolars v Toronto game in March,
