  1. Hundreds of Canadians excited about attending Championship RL, great to see.
  2. Apart from Joe Bretherton's try in the last minute all of Toulouse's try scorers were home-grown juniors who came through the club's academy system. Youngster Jussaume doing some damage on only his second senior appearance.
  3. Yes could be an opportunity for Mourgue to make the breakthrough, remember George Williams coming into the Wigan team in a similar way filling in at hooker. Won't happen though, based on his track record McNamara will probably go with something like Smith at hooker and Langi and Bird in the halves.
  4. Thought for a while that Lewis Tierney is not a SL standard player. I'd rather see one of the wingers from St Esteve than him.
  5. Meresta-Doucet is alright and was praised by Bosc when he was coaching the reserves.
  6. Every time someone complains about dangerous barricades around the pitch I think of this
  7. Yep, they played the rest of the match in relatively good spirits, shook hands and even had a group photo together at the end. This stuff is not that uncommon in Serbia.
  8. It used to happen in 13-a-side RL but was changed back because it meant teams already on the back foot were then immediately pinned again inside their own half and it led to hammerings. In RL field position is more important than possession, much less so in 9's.
  9. I don't think that's the point he was making. I was a big supporter of Hemel entering the pro game and their first season was encouraging, but after that they failed on so many levels. And it's not things that were unavoidable or out of their control, last time I was there about a year ago the signs at the stadium still said 'Amateur Rugby League Club' FFS. Obviously not such a big deal in itself but it just summed up the overall slackness and amateurish nature of the club. Of course starting a pro club in a new location is hard, but it's made so much harder when the people in charge completely fail at the basics.
  10. Agreed, a lot of people tend to vote for very trivial or spurious reasons and often without using their brain. That doesn't make claiming they would vote for a non-party with no leader, no policies, no candidates, no unifying ideology and no official stance on any issue any less stupid though.
  11. Corbyn is the leader of an established political party with policies, candidates, unifying ideology and and an official stance on every issue. So no. Also aren't you the one who was adamant that people vote for their local candidates rather than parties (or even just the party leader as you seem to be implying)?
  12. Not really. The fact that people would supposedly vote for a non-party that has no leader, no policies, no candidates, no unifying ideology and no official stance on any issue is just proof if it was further needed that a) polls are stupid and b) people are stupid too.
