  1. When my son played RU most of the matches were 'friendlies' and if a match got one sided there were player swaps and the stronger players were pulled to give the bench players more game time. Only the Yorkshire and NLD Cup games were 'competetive'. Some of the so called friendlies got a bit spicy from U15 upwards though.
  2. Nobody knows. I wonder if this vote will be held door to door, with an armed policeman writing down the results?
  3. She researched Wolf Hall for 5 years before putting pen to paper.
  4. He's the right kind of chap, though, and supports the right political party. More important.
  5. It might get an repeat airing on BBC2 at least. I think the BBC have decided the country is now too stupid for drama like that on a main channel.
  6. Dame Hilary Mantel, author, aged 70 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-63007307
  7. I'm old now so I'm thinking "she should at least be wearing gloves and a helmet"
  8. This is all well and good, but it's going to take something pretty sesimic for any of the teams to get anywhere near Leigh.
  9. I did two parkruns on my trip to South Africa, which were my 99th and 100th different events, 309 in total. First week was in Franschhoek, where we ran through the vineyard of the Rickety Bridge winery. The second was Atholl in Johannesburg, within sight of the Wanderers cricket stadium. The Joburg one was interesting as it sits at over 5000 feet and it really made me suck the air in on the uphill sections.
  10. Loved Oakwell Hall, tough though it is.
  11. Managed a 26 minute run at Potternewton parkrun in Leeds. I was there last week for the West Indian carnival. It was much quieter this morning, apart from my breathing as I negotiated the hills.
  12. The game has expanded since then. Featherstone joined the Northen Union in 1898.
  13. Sadly I don't think so. A shame as I had a few friends at Hoyland.
