  1. The entire Summer Bash had to be moved from Blackpool to Headingley.
  2. Surely the Odsal roar would have drowned out the sound of an air con unit?
  3. The slightly worrying thing for me is we're down to only one recognised prop now for the rest of the season. Sam Brooks and Ellis Gillam will do a sterling job for the team, but who are the best ones to rotate them with now? Shouldn't we be thinking about recalling Connor Terrill?
  4. I'm 100% behind the preservation of Cornish and Welsh as these represent the last reminders of what was our native British language before the Anglo Saxons rocked up.
  5. Absolutely this. Any team that has a football club as their landlord has to fit their fixtures around the needs of the football team., especially during the football season. You'd have thought SL would have worked this out by now?
  6. You could say that about any language. There is no way that English spoken/used today by people on a day to day basis is the same as that which existed prior to the seventeenth century.
  7. Those are very good points. Perhaps you should have raised these in your initial post?
  8. Can't get there myself this year but whenever I've been to Headingley for Test cricket/One Day Internationals etc, the rugby pitch was usually given over to media and hospitality and it's a great ground for having a wander round. I wonder if any thought's been given into creating some kind of fan zone utilising the concourse round the cricket ground, the space behind the western terrace etc? It would be handy to have if you aren't enticed by the prospect of the Heavy Woollen Derby but want to stay onsite.
  9. Rugby League fans: WE WANT INTERNATIONALS! Also Rugby League fans: NOT AGAINST THEM! I'M NOT BOTHERING! Rugby League fans: WE MUST SPREAD THE GAME OUTSIDE OF THE HEARTLANDS! Also Rugby League fans: NOT THERE! NOBODY WILL GO!
  10. This is just another example of how stupid clubs are when it comes to social media. Whoever looks after the Instagram/Twitter/Facebook side of things, they need to remember that their primary function is to promote the interests of the club and secondarily promote the wider interests of the game. Their job isn't to slag off other clubs facilities (or lack of). I genuinely think that some people who post in a club's name forget that they aren't using their own personal accounts.
  11. I watched the first try on repeat about half a dozen tries. YouTube Highlights
  12. Couldn't agree more with this. Championship Grand Final day was always a good day out at the Halliwell Jones. I can't help but suspect that its abandonment was more about the RFL saving money on organising a final at a neutral ground than anything else.

    Tee

    There's a 'Regan Grace Replacement Gossip' thread in the General Topics section. Tee gets a mention but the general feeling there is that Kristian Woolf is fishing in a bigger pond than the Championship for a suitable replacement.
  14. I hope there's some new evidence and it isn't just out of a misplaced sense of grievance. Frivolous appeals can sometimes end up with the player getting a longer ban.
