  1. Frow Trevor Delanys book The Grounds of Rugby League
  2. If you could pick four stands to make up your dream stadium, which would they be? I think you would have to include Salfords North Stand, and Leeds new West Stand as the 2 end stands, and The old Douglas Stand from Central Park on one side with the North(?) stand at the Halliwell Jones. Any one got other ideas? Although I have used a stand that has been demolished, remember this is a dream Ground. The KC stadium is superb architectually inside, but I couldn't include it here.
  3. correct, my mistake, Swinton played Workington (A), Doncaster (H), Batley (A), and Widnes (H) Won 2 Lost 2 Between the 4th July and 22nd August Inclusive we only have 3 home games, with 2 blank weekends, and 2 awaygames
  4. The game has been cemented in France since 1934, how long do you want? Personally I would want another 2 clubs in C1, as Swinton have gone a whole month without A home game in the last 2 seasons, restructure the NRC, don't get rid of it altogether. This year it was divided into 2 groups, playing 6 games each, how can you allow teams through on that criteria, when some clubs don't play each other. I like the idea of allowing super league season ticket holders in to matches, paying the extra for the privalige might mean they turn up, although any kind of increase could reduce the number of season tickets sold in the current economic state, also I can't see the Hull clubs fans paying extra, and not having a Championship side close by. Parent clubs could be a way of getting SL players fully match fit after injury, but how would we structure it? I wouldn't want any Salford players playing for us, as I would doubt their commitment. SL clubs might choose Champ clubs only and ignore C1. More cash would be helpful, but it doesn't solve the longer running problems.
  5. I thought one of the criteria for a SL license was winning one of the trophys on offer to Championship teams, doesn't look like Widnes will get a license in 2012 now, after getting beat by Batley, and being off the pace in the League. Saints playing at Widnes' Naughton Park may be the only time you get to see Superleague before the next licensing round in 2016
  6. Calder Trinity Tigers, I might even light a candle for,...... er,.... no-one.
  7. England v Barbarians, great idea, I wonder why no-one else has thought of it (Sarcasm). Thats what I have been suggesting from the start of the thread,however you call it England I v Other nationalities/Barbarians/Championship/ England II/Possibles. We need a more serious challenge than France once a season, with a view to the 4 Nations & a World Cup performance better than 2008, and the wendyballers, and it can be fitted into the season, just extend it by 1 week and play the extra 2 fixtures mid week either side of a blank weekend (Thurs & Tues). State of Origin is played midweek between two weekends of full fixtures in all 3 SOO games
  8. and we can start with a match against PNG in 70% humidity, and include a couple of games against New Zealand too. Then the whinging will start.. When will our contracted players rest, Too much domestic rugby, stuff the cup, trial matches? Forget that. Sorry to be negative, but tours were great when players had some pride, but now all they are interested in is money, rest, and continuing their career as long as they can to fill a decent sized biography. The players don't want a six week tour at the end of a long hard season, they want "Time with their family", as though full time rugby doesn't give them enough time after a two or three hour training session each day is full time. Ashes, Blox to that, whats the point? Keep GB as a world cup entry, & as a 4-nation thing then we might have a chance. GB Once every 4 years, rubbish.
  9. Yes, not sure how long my subscription is going for though, and I'm moving this month (Hopefully)
  10. Is there a Rugby League Manager game available anywhere?
  11. Maybe we are missing a trick from our American cousins, instead of a Lancashire v Yorkshire, or GB v Other Nationalities, how about a Mid-Season (No league round) All-Star Game, Reds v Blues, best 34 players, of the last 12 months, being picked by the best coaches of the last 12 months. We could have Yorkshire based forwards and Lancs/Wales/France based backs v Lancs/Wales/France based Forwards and Yorkshire based backs Or British forwards and Foreign backs v Foreign forwards v British Backs. What else could we do to replace our poor version of Origin that the RFL killed off?
  12. Ruislip isn't London! I know because I lived around the corner in Uxbridge for 20 years, it's technically Middlesex, as most of it either has a Uxbridge postcode (UB) & telephone prefix (01895) or a Harrow postcode (HA). Mind you, it IS mind numbingly dull
  13. Having Pea & Asparagus soup, and Chicken Marengo tonight, mmmmm
  14. Bolox! mine are still up! No, only kidding. Don't have any decorations. Cards are recycled.
  15. Our Busses / Buses don't get much above a 12MPH average even when its warm and dry. August 2009 it took 28 minutes in a F-prefix reg bus to do 3.5 miles, the heating was on and there was old biddies were sharing bottles of water, although I didn't share because I thought I saw a false tooth or eye floating in a certain bottle of Evian, or is that normal?
  16. Left work 1820, and as I left it started snowing, dumped about 3 inch in the time it took me to walk half an hour towards the curry house, No busses were running. That wasn't surprising given the fact they stop when it rains down here, no Bus goes to the hospital on a Sunday and all have stopped Mon-Sat by 8pm anyway. Guess who runs the Monopoly sorry franchise in Hastings? Yes thats right, the scottish pirates Stagecoach. I bet they keep the transport working up north where there is competition?
  17. Samsung make a 8mp Pixon, that I have, and have just released a 12mp one
  18. Thanks for the advice - seriously - the cameras I used were only pocket compact ones, but they do have the features you mentioned, the one I use now is a Kodak Z885 8mp, I am lazy when taking photos and use all the auto features I can.
  19. **Picture removed at my other halfs request, "You never know who is viewing these pictures", I told her not to be silly, but have relented due to the fact I might want sex sometime in the next 10 years** And finally, my wonderful Daughter Leilani Freya at my ex-wifes wedding last weekend, she didn't need a car, she turned up on her broomstick
  20. Knossos on Crete The Harbour at Hersonissos on Crete
  21. I want to put more photos on here, but on the attachments it tells me I have used 823.6k of 1000k and won't let me upload any more, what am I doing wrong? Sod it, I'll upload them via photobucket.......
  22. Can you take a bad picture of Santorini? (Which translates as St Irene) How do I make the pictures bigger?
  23. Back in 2006 I was at the Skolars v Lions game and e-mailed the pictures I took to the press officer at Swinton, he e-mailed me back asking for permission to publish them in the next programme, I agreed as long as I got a credit. The Swinton v Keighley Centre spread is of my pictures. Good use of them too considering I only have a Kodak Z885 (8Mb) pocket job.
